Previous Post

    Moondragon was depicted as top tier through the 80s.

    Amora was a top tier threat in the silver age

Blast you ssssssh! I'm using Moondragon (already stated her in my previous post) and another wildcard in my battle lineup.

Don't blow anymore of my cover!


and IMO Moondragon, at least through the mid 80's was portrayed as a truly top tier powerhouse. I think she's trended downhill since, however.

IIRC DC had several powerful females too..Harbinger was impressive IIRC during Crisis, previously mentioned Supergirl, and as I said, Mary Marvel is probably the first major female powerhouse.

Some characters were in comics a long time ago, and implied to be very powerful, but I don't remember any real showings for Hela and Karnilla back then, even though they were introduced in the 60's...but Amora was very impressive in that time frame...

Frankie Raye became Nova in the 70's didn't she?...nope, on checking, she was a character through the late 70's, but didn't become a herald until 1982....still, quite a while ago, and a top tier...

Wasn't Kismet/Her/Paragon introduced in the 70's?

I don't remember much about Jade pre crisis, but she was pretty powerful I think, with Starheart energies like a GL

How powerful was Big Barda pre crisis? I mostly remember her in the late 80's to early 90's.

Back to Marvel, both Thena and Sersi go back to the 70's, but their best showings were later.

By the 90's, we have plenty of very powerful female characters being featured.
