Kapow! Kick-Ass Female Superheroes We'd All Love To Be
As we're given the first look at the new Wonder Woman, it's got us thinking about the butt-kicking super heroines and villains who are more than just a buxom beauty in a catsuit. Whether it's telepathy , stealth or simply the art of seduction, we take a look at the bad-ass babes who are integral to the comic books we all know and love.
1. The Brand New Wonder Woman!
Zac Snyder, director of the new 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' has Tweeted a picture of his brand new Super Woman. The Israeli actress Gal Gadot takes on the role in the upcoming film. The gorgeous brunette's character, dressed in thigh high leather boots and metal cuffs, is certainly a departure for the traditional character we recognise in her red, blue and gold.
2. Beauty and Braun! Wonder Woman.
There is only one word to describe this heroine, and that is iconic. Originally portrayed by the gorgeous Lynda Carter, Wonder Woman is more than just a woman in a pair of tiny hot pants. She has more strength than 10 henchmen, super speed, the ability to fly and she was blessed with stunning looks and a big heart thanks to the powers bestowed on her by Aphrodite, the goddess of love.

3. Dressed to kill! Black Widow
Who else could play this red-headed beauty apart from the gorgeous Scarlett Johansson? Making numerous appearances on the silver screen in films such as 'Iron Man 2' and 'Captain America', the Black Widow is a trained ballerina turned superhero with kickass martial arts skills. A famed member of the Avengers crime-fighting team, her super-human powers means she doesn't age and is immune to all diseases.
4. She's puuuurfection! Catwoman.
MeWOW! Nobody had us on the edge of our cinema seats more than Anne Hathaway who won us over with her perfect depiction of Batman's antagonist catwoman in 'The Dark Knight Rises'. Although she appears to lack any real super powers, no one can match Catwoman's agility, stealth and thievery. Besides her stellar bod' her greatest weapon of all is her romantic hold over Batman.
5. The ever mystical Mystique!
Kick ass should have been Jennifer Lawrence's middle name when she first stripped off for the role of Mystique in 'X Men: First Class'. For those that don't know much other than the fact she looks like a really hot smurf, lets just says her superhuman abilities are endless. After being exposed to dangerous levels of radiation Mystique discovered powers such as body metamorphosis, night vision, accelerated healing and a natural resistance to mind-reading.
6. No you see her, now you don't! Invisible Woman.
What could possibly be better than being invisible for a day? However, Jessica Alba didn't spend her time sneaking into Brad Pitt's dressing room, instead she used her powers to help the ultimate crime-fighting team the Fantastic Four. Picture: Splash
7. Killer Kisses! Poison Ivy.
One of our favourite villains! Batman's antagonist, Poison Ivy has toxins which are secreted from her lips meaning she can kill with just a kiss! Whilst Batman can just about resist her mind-controlling abilities, the average joe may not be so lucky. Watch out boys! Picture: Photoshot
8. Not just a sidekick! Batgirl.
Where would Batman be without Batgirl? We may all be familiar with his ever-faithful sidekick Robin, but that doesn't mean batgirl is just there as eye-candy. Not only does she kick ass, but she is integral in Batman's fight against the Joker. Picture: Photoshot
9. She's Electric! X-Men's storm.
You don't want to get on the wrong side of this superhero as she has the ability to control the weather and normally her adventures never end with a sunny day. Hell hath no fury like Storm scorned, so expect lots tornadoes, thunderstorms, blizzards, and hurricanes when she's around. Picture: Splash
