-any women from The Authority (Jenny Sparks and The Engineer for starters)

Raven she has to have so much willpower to contain her dark side. She chooses to do the right thing even when it’s the hardest thing for her to do. granny goodness would also be someone I consider a badass. She has put up with a lot and still is tough as nails. Ok now that I think about it Amanda Waller deserves to be on this list lol

Amanda Waller is a candidate for badassery too. She’s stood up to Batman, ran Task Force X, and always finds a way to get her way and get the job done.

I’d also nominate Big Barda, Catwoman and Donna Troy.

Mera. Though she isn’t a great role model, seeing her literally drain a person of water in the New 52 Aquaman arc blew my mind.

I want to say the Timmverse Hawkgirl, but deep down I know it’s The Wall.

Yeah- I have to nominate Stephanie Brown and Barbara Gordon for insane badassery. They are both friggin awesome. Seriously, watching Barbara doing those pull ups while in the wheelchair(and lifting it with her), nothing defeats this awesome woman…

My other candidates would include Harley(especially after her split from the Joker), Huntress, and Black Canary.

I’m typically drawn to our non-supers in these types of discussions. The fact that they can hold their own against the metas is worth noting in itself…:slightly_smiling_face:

I gotta go with Wonder Woman. I know some of you guys can go into her mythology way better than I can. One thing I will say is that WW is basically a female Superman who is also a warrior which many other ladies in DC can’t say.
