10. Supergirl

  • Real Name: Kara Zor-El
  • Aliases: Supergirl; Red Lantern; Kara Kent; Kara Danvers
  • Species: Kryptonian
  • Place of Birth: Argo City, Krypton
  • Hair Color: Blonde
  • Eye Color: Blue
  • Height: 5’5”
  • Weight: 120 pounds

Powers and Abilities

Supergirl is the name given to Kara Zor-El, a cousin of Superman who was first introduced in 1959. Born and raised on the planet Krypton, Kara was sent to Earth in order to look after Superman (and escape death on her home-world). Similar to Superman, Supergirl possesses a wide array of Kryptonian powers, including super-strength, the ability to fly, heat vision, and the ability to hear faint sounds. As a former Kryptonian, however, she relies heavily on the Earth’s gravity and yellow sunlight to power her body. Without these factors in place, she loses all of her powers. Supergirl is also hurt by the radioactive properties of Kryptonite.

Personality

Supergirl’s personality can vary significantly depending on the series or comic book adaptation being told. However, she is generally described as extremely kind-hearted, optimistic, and compassionate. As an interstellar figure living on a planet far from her home, however, Supergirl also displays signs of loneliness and insecurity as she tries to fit in on Earth. In her later years, Kara grew more confident in her abilities, and was renowned for her hot temper, snarky personality, and lack of patience (especially with bullies and criminals).

Appearance

While Supergirl’s overall appearance tends to differ with each adaptation, her look has remained relatively consistent over time. Sporting a blue long-sleeve top that is accentuated by a red and yellow “S” (just like Superman), Supergirl’s costume is completed by a miniature red skirt, red cape, and pair of matching red boots. Taken together, Supergirl’s outfit outlines her natural features well, particularly in the bust as well as the legs. For these reasons, Supergirl is easily one of the sexiest women of the DC universe.

9. Black Canary

  • Real Name: Dinah Drake-Lance
  • Alias: Black Canary
  • Species: Human
  • Place of Birth: Unknown
  • Hair Color: Blonde
  • Eye Color: Blue
  • Height: 5’7”
  • Weight: 130 pounds

Powers and Abilities

Black Canary is renowned for her shattering scream which is capable of subduing nearly any opponent. Known as the “Canary Cry,” her scream is powerful enough to shatter nearly any object through its powerful vibrations. She is also extremely skilled in a variety of martial arts, making her a skilled opponent in nearly any fight. Apart from her voice and fighting skills, Black Canary is also a gifted thinker and leader. As such, she is often utilized for training and planning.

Personality

Generally speaking, Black Canary can be described as confident, clearheaded, and serious. Similar to Power Girl, Black Canary is also known for her bluntness, and rarely minces words when giving her opinion. In spite of this, she is also quite patient (particularly with those she is teaching). And while she is considered tough towards others, she has no qualms about giving praise when it is due.

Appearance

Black Canary’s appearance varies significantly between comic renderings. In spite of this though, she is often portrayed as slender/athletic, with blonde hair and blue eyes. At 5’7” and 130 pounds, Black Canary is also well-proportioned for her size. In regard to clothing, she is commonly seen in a black/blue leather jacket (that complements her motorcycle), along with a one-piece bustier-leotard, gray stockings, calf-length boots, and fingerless gloves. This attire leaves little to the imagination for viewers, and nicely shows off Black Canary’s legs and cleavage. For these reasons, she is, without a doubt, one of the sexiest women of the DC Universe.

8. Star Sapphire

  • Real Name: Carol Ferris
  • Alias: Star Sapphire
  • Species: Human
  • Place of Birth: Unknown
  • Hair Color: Black
  • Eye Color: Blue
  • Height: 5’7”
  • Weight: 125 pounds

Powers and Abilities

Although Star Sapphire possesses no natural powers, a violet power ring provides her with the ability to fly and create light-based constructs. Powered by love, Star Sapphire’s ring allows her to transport herself anywhere in the universe, as well as create force fields, and heal the wounded (or dead). When using her superpowers, Star Sapphire’s appear almost white in coloration, while her body is accentuated by a distinctly violet-colored hue.

Personality

As a former pilot, Star Sapphire’s personality can be best described as daring, adventurous, and bold. In spite of this, various comic book renditions have portrayed Star Sapphire with personalities that appear at odds with one another. During her original years of development, Star Sapphire took on a more villainous persona due to the effects of a Zamoronian Power Gem that altered her overall personality; however, her persona later changed to a more heroic role once she overcame the gem’s effects.

Appearance

Depending on the comic book rendition, Star Sapphire is predominantly seen in violet-colored attire (representing “love” on the color spectrum). More often than not, her primary costume of choice revolves around a solid-colored bodysuit that accentuates her natural curves and bust with its skintight design. Combined with her hourglass shape, jet black hair, and blue eyes, Star Sapphire is an incredibly sexy addition to DC Comics.

7. Circe

  • Real Name: Circe
  • Alias: N/A
  • Species: Demigoddess
  • Place of Birth:
  • Hair Color: Red
  • Eye Color: Yellow and Purple
  • Height: 5’11”
  • Weight: 135 pounds

Powers and Abilities

Circe is a deadly witch from DC Comics that has lived several centuries without aging. Considered a powerful sorceress, Circe is renowned in the comic book world for her ability to use magic against her foes. One of her most powerful attacks is the ability to create “Ani-Men,” which are hapless humans that are turned into animals and forced to obey Circe’s commands. She is also gifted with the ability to distort reality, as well as manipulate sound and the surrounding environment to her will. Combined with her superhuman strength and durability, Circe is an incredibly powerful foe, and is widely considered to be one of Wonder Woman’s most dangerous enemies.

Personality

Circe can be best-described as arrogant, power-hungry, and evil to the core. She is also extremely intelligent, cunning, and calculating. And while she is known to make alliances with others from time to time, these agreements are always sought for the purpose of advancing her own agenda (as Circe’s motives are always in the interest of self). To date, no such alliance has lasted beyond the short-term, as Circe always manages to betray those who ally themselves alongside her.

Appearance

Despite her personality flaws (and penchant for evil), Circe is an incredibly sexy character due to her athletic appearance and natural beauty. Although her character has undergone numerous revisions in regard to appearance, her basic sex appeal has remained strong. To date, Circe is depicted with pale skin, dark red hair, and yellowish-red eyes. In regard to attire, her clothing varies significantly between each comic book issue. Nevertheless, her clothing options are generally quite revealing, and showcase her athletic body, cleavage, and bust. Most of Circe’s outfits also showcase her long legs, leaving little to the viewer’s imagination. She is easily one of the hottest characters to grace the DC Universe in recent decades for these reasons.

Selina Kyle, also known as Catwoman.

6. Catwoman

  • Real Name: Selina Kyle
  • Alias: Catwoman; Catbird; Holly Robinson; “The Cat”
  • Species: Human
  • Place of Birth: Gotham City
  • Hair Color: Black
  • Eye Color: Green
  • Height: 5’7”
  • Weight: 138 pounds

Powers and Abilities

Like many of the women on this list, Catwoman possesses a number of natural abilities and talents. For starters, she is incredibly athletic with superior reflexes, agility, and speed. She is also quite acrobatic, which provides her with the ability to travel the rooftops of Gotham City with relative ease. Combined with her skills with martial arts, advanced hand-to-hand combat, as well as cat-like stealth, Catwoman is more than capable of holding her own in precarious situations.

Personality

In regard to Catwoman’s personality, she can be best-described as prideful, sensuous, and flirtatious. And while she is often characterized as a villain in the Batman franchise, Catwoman often walks a thin line between the light and dark; occasionally helping Batman when necessary. This implies that Selina Kyle possesses a sense of morality that guides her life choices.

Appearance

No matter the series, Catwoman is regularly seen as a major sex symbol of DC Comics due to her natural beauty and sensuous nature. Generally speaking, she commonly appears in a skintight catsuit, along with a black “cat helmet” to conceal her identity. This suit leaves little to the imagination, as all of her natural curves are on full display to audiences. Selina Kyle is also quite busty, and isn’t shy about showing off her natural cleavage through unzipped zippers or low-cut collars. Combined with her green eyes, black hair, and athletic body, Catwoman is easily one of the sexiest characters of the Batman franchise (and DC Comics in general).

The lovely Starfire.

5. Starfire

  • Real Name: Koriand’r
  • Alias: Starfire
  • Species: Tamaranean
  • Place of Birth: Tamaran
  • Hair Color: Pinkish-Red
  • Eye Color: Green
  • Height: 6’4”
  • Weight: 158 pounds

Powers and Abilities

Starfire possesses a number of natural abilities. These include super strength, stamina, and durability. She is also capable of absorbing radiation from the Sun which allows her to systematically “fire” energy blasts (or “Starbolts” as she refers to them). In addition to these abilities, Starfire is also highly gifted in the art of hand-to-hand combat learned from Okaara warlords while she was still on her home planet of Tamaran.

Personality

In the Teen Titans series, Starfire is considered extremely cheerful and sweet-natured. As an alien, she is also quite naïve when it comes to human-based interactions, and struggles daily with understanding the customs of Earth and its people. Apart from these traits, Starfire is also quite outgoing and vivacious, with a generally positive outlook on life.

Appearance

Starfire is an exceptionally beautiful character, with sparkling green eyes, a beautiful smile, long (pinkish-red) hair, and a slightly tan complexion. In the New Earth series, these features are accentuated greatly by Starfire’s outfit, which can be best described as revealing and sensual in appearance. Leaving little to the imagination, Starfire can be seen sporting a pair of purple thigh-high boots, along with a two-piece suit that highlights her natural curves and large bust. For these reasons, she is easily one of the hottest characters to grace DC Comics in recent decades.

4. Poison Ivy

  • Real Name: Dr. Pamela Lillian Isley
  • Alias: Poison Ivy
  • Species: Human
  • Place of Birth: Gotham City
  • Hair Color: Red
  • Eye Color: Green
  • Height: 5 foot, 6 inches
  • Weight: 110 pounds

Powers and Abilities

In regard to powers, Poison Ivy possesses a powerful combination of Chlorokinesis and Toxikinesis abilities. Through chlorokinesis, Poison Ivy maintains a powerful connection with plants and trees that allows her to manipulate them to her will. This also provides her with powerful control over pheromones, which she uses to seduce individuals (both men and women). Toxikinesis, on the other hand, provides Poison Ivy with the ability to kill through her sense of touch. By overloading her blood stream with deadly animal and plant toxins, a simple touch (or kiss) is often fatal or paralyzing to her unsuspecting victim. On the other hand, this also gives Poison Ivy remarkable immunity against nearly any toxin, virus, or bacteria.

In addition to her supernatural powers, Poison Ivy also possesses several abilities that aid in her criminal lifestyle. For starters, she is incredibly intelligent and a renowned scientist in the realms of botany and toxicology. Poison Ivy is also gifted in the art of seduction, using her natural beauty (in addition to pheromones) to get what she desires. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, she is incredibly gifted in hand-to-hand combat. And while her proficiency in martial arts fighting is relatively limited, Poison Ivy’s natural agility makes her incredibly efficient at leaping and climbing; giving her a decisive edge over opponents.

Personality

Aside from her remarkable set of powers and abilities, Poison Ivy’s personality can be best described as seductive, sneaky, and deceitful. Overly conscious of her physical beauty, Poison Ivy is not afraid to use seduction as a means of obtaining what she wants. She is also quite ruthless, and rarely shows compassion towards anyone (particularly men). The one exception to this rule is Harley Quinn, whom Ivy befriends in later editions of the Batman series.

Appearance

Depending on the series, Poison Ivy is generally seen sporting a green bodysuit, with lime-colored stockings, and dark-green boots. This attire is often quite revealing, showcasing her large bust, athletic body, and hourglass shape. In the hit video game, Batman: Arkham Asylum, little was left to the viewer’s imagination, as Ivy donned a revealing red shirt, along with a small set of leaves that took the shape of skimpy panties. Combined with her red hair and beautiful eyes, Ivy is easily one of the sexiest characters in the DC Universe.

  • Real Name: Dr. Harleen Quinzel
  • Alias: Harley Quinn
  • Species: Human
  • Place of Birth:
  • Hair Color: Blonde
  • Eye Color: Blue
  • Height: 5’7”
  • Weight: 115 pounds

Powers and Abilities

Although Harley Quinn possesses no superpowers, she is extremely athletic with a gift for gymnastics. As a result, she is incredibly fast and agile. In addition to these qualities, Quinn is also known for her extreme bravery, as well as her natural leadership abilities (displayed during her time with the Suicide Squad). Finally, due to her close relationship with Poison Ivy, it is believed that Quinn also possesses a natural immunity to a variety of plant-based toxins.

Personality

Harley Quinn’s personality traits vary widely (depending on which incarnation is being described). Nevertheless, she is generally considered to be an extremely “bubbly” and energetic character, with a tireless persona and charming disposition. Despite her insanity and demented outlook on life, Quinn is also quite intelligent with an IQ approaching genius proportions. Similar to Joker, Quinn has always been prone to explosive bouts of rage, with her violent streaks exceeding many of Batman’s most notorious villains.

Appearance

Quinn is an incredibly sexy character from the DC universe, and is well-known for her slim and athletic profile. Although her image has undergone numerous alterations throughout the decades, Quinn’s characteristics and hallmarks have remained quite consistent. She is well-known for her harlequin style (hence her name), as well as her often revealing attire that never fails to show off her legs and upper body. Combined with her large bust, many have characterized Quinn as one of the hottest comic book characters of all time.

  • Alias: Power Girl; Andromeda; Ernie; Karen Starr; Ursa
  • Species: Kryptonian
  • Place of Birth: Krypton
  • Hair Color: Blonde
  • Eye Color: Blue
  • Height: 5’7”
  • Weight: 160 pounds

Powers and Abilities

Similar to her cousin, Superman, Power Girl possesses an array of superhuman powers due to her Kryptonian origins. After arriving on Earth, the effect of the Sun’s energy granted Power Girl with heat vision, super-hearing, enhanced vision, as well as the ability to fly. She is also invulnerable to most threats, including various toxins and diseases, and possesses a genius-level intellect. Combined with her superhuman strength, stamina, and speed, Power Girl is virtually unstoppable with Kryptonite and magic being one of her few natural weaknesses.

Personality

Power Girl possesses a survivalist mentality in that she is incredibly tough and self-reliant. She is also quite blunt and cranky (at times), and doesn’t shy away from telling individuals her true thoughts. This is in stark contrast to her cousin (Superman) who was known for his polite and genial nature. In spite of this tough personality, however, Power Girl is also renowned for her sense of humor that can be described as witty, dry, and jaded at times.

Appearance

To date, Power Girl continues to be a major sex symbol of the DC Universe. Although her original creators never intended for this to occur, Power Girl’s athletic and curvaceous body (combined with her large bust) quickly turned the character into a favorite of men and women alike. These natural curves are further enhanced by her revealing attire that includes a white bodysuit, blue gloves, boots, and a red cape. Combined with her natural beauty, Power Girl is easily one of the sexiest characters of DC Comics; a feat that will likely continue for quite some time.

Combined, Wonder Woman (or Diana Prince as she is known) is easily one of the most powerful superheroines of the DC universe.

Personality

Although considered highly opinionated and stubborn (to a fault), Wonder Woman is also renowned for her caring and compassionate side as well. She is both empathetic, nurturing, and guided by a strong conscience. In spite of her devotion to peace, however, Wonder Woman is not one to back down from a fight, and is capable of holding her own against nearly any villain.

Appearance

Depicted as tall and fair-skinned, Wonder Woman sports long black hair, blue eyes, a large bust, and a well-toned body that can be described as both ageless and incredibly attractive. Accentuating her lovely form is a red strapless bustier, a golden belt, blue boots, and a pair of blue briefs covered in five stars. Taken together, Wonder Woman’s form and sensual attire easily make her the sexiest female character of the DC universe.
