We all know who are the strongest female superheroes in the world of comics. Today we’re going to take a look at the weakest female superheroes in comics based on their physical, special and superhuman strength. Here we must note that by weak we mean the super power and not their will power. They all have important roles in the comics in their own ways. Some of the characters listed here are weakened by superpowers but they inspire us to be brave despite being weak.
Squirrel Girl, also known as Doreen Green, is a Marvel Comics character who first appeared in 1992. She can communicate with squirrels and can also use their help in battle. Squirrel Girl is known for her optimistic attitude and her unique powers, including super strength, agility, and retractable knuckle spikes. Despite her small and unassuming appearance, she has proven herself to be a formidable hero, having defeated numerous super villains including Doctor Doom and Thanos.
Some people view Squirrel Girl as an overrated character and believe that she is only meant to be a gag character in Marvel Comics. They argue that she is not physically strong enough and never defeats her opponents through violence, instead relying on her moral strength and the help of her squirrel friends to emerge victorious. Others believe that her ability never to lose, regardless of the opponent’s abilities or power, makes her an unrealistic and unbalanced character.
She-Hulk, also known as Jennifer Walters, is a Marvel Comics character who first appeared in 1980. She gained her powers after receiving an emergency blood transfusion from her cousin Bruce Banner, also known as the Hulk. While She-Hulk has many of the same powers as the Hulk, including super strength, durability, and regenerative abilities, she is able to maintain her intelligence and personality while transformed.
A skilled lawyer, She-Hulk has used her powers to defend the innocent and fight for justice as a member of the Avengers and other superhero teams. However, She-Hulk did not receive the full blood transfusion from Bruce Banner, which means that she is not able to become as enraged as the male version of the Hulk. If she were to get into a fight with the Hulk, it is likely that she would be overpowered.
First appearing in Marvel Comics in 1981, Rogue is a powerful and capable hero who can absorb the memories, abilities, and physical traits of anyone she touches. Rogue is unable to turn off this power and must wear special gloves or remain isolated from others to control it. Despite this limitation, she has served as a member of the X-Men and other superhero teams. Rogue has also struggled with identity issues and self-acceptance due to her powers, making her a complex and well-rounded character. While Rogue’s ability to control the powers of other mutants can make her formidable, it is not always foolproof. For example, when she tried to use her power against the Silver Surfer, she was knocked out by his “power cosmic.”
Despite being a regular human being with no superhuman abilities or strength, the MCU version of Black Widow, also known as Natasha Romanoff, is a formidable hero due to her exceptional training as a spy and high resistance to mental and physical torture. Even though she got affected by things that would hurt a normal human, she has successfully taken down alien armies and played a crucial role in helping the Avengers. Despite having limited powers, she uses them impressively and is known for her intelligence, resourcefulness, and loyalty, making her a valuable member of any team.
Black Widow first appeared in Marvel Comics in 1964 and has worked for various organizations including S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Avengers. She is skilled in hand-to-hand combat, an expert markswoman, and has access to advanced technology such as her signature Widow’s Bite gauntlets, which can discharge powerful electric blasts.
First appearing in 1992, Harley Quinn is a DC Comics character created by Paul Dini and Bruce Timm, originally appearing as a recurring character in Batman: The Animated Series. A former psychiatrist, Harley becomes infatuated with the Joker and becomes his loyal henchwoman. Known for her erratic and unpredictable behavior, Harley is also skilled in acrobatics and uses weapons such as her signature mallet in combat. While originally portrayed as a villain, Harley has also been shown to have a more heroic side and has worked with various superheroes, including the Birds of Prey.
While not as strong as some other superhumans, Harley is highly intelligent and skilled in analyzing people due to her background in psychology. Additionally, her strength, agility, and immunity to toxins have been enhanced by her ally Poison Ivy.
Dazzler, also known as Alison Blaire, is a Marvel Comics character who was created as a cross-promotion between Marvel Comics and Casablanca Records. She first appeared in X-Men #130 in 1980. Dazzler can turn sonic vibrations into various forms of light, including visible light, sound, pressure, and more. She is able to project this light from her fingertips in the form of a blast, but doing so can be taxing on her. While Dazzler can turn any sonic vibration into light, she prefers to use music as an outlet because it is easier on her ears and provides a constant, predictable source of sound. Dazzler has worked as a superhero, using her powers to defend the innocent and fight against injustice, and has been a member of various superhero teams including the X-Men and Excalibur.
Katana, also known as Tatsu Yamashiro, is a DC Comics character who first appeared in 1983. A skilled martial artist and swordsman, she wields the Soultaker Sword, which contains the soul of her deceased husband. Despite not having as many powers as other superheroes, Katana is a formidable warrior and a valued member of the Birds of Prey, as well as a trusted ally of Batman and the Suicide Squad. She is also a skilled detective and has a strong sense of honor and justice.
