10 Powerful Black Female Superheroes We Love

superheroes vixen Vixen (1981)

Vixen is an African female superhero who has the ability to tap into Earth’s morphogenetic field that allows her to mimic the abilities of any animal, by simply focusing on its specific abilities and drawing them directly from the field. Using her Tantu Totem, a mystical totem said to be created by the African god Anansi the Spider, Vixen is able to control her powers.

Her many powers include the ability to spit venom like a spitting cobra and to acquire the strength of a rhinoceros beetle (about 65 tons), the constriction of an anaconda, the wall-crawling ability of a spider, similar to Spider-Man, the speed of a cheetah and the flight of a hawk.

Captain Marvel/Spectrum (1982)

Monica Rambeau was a lieutenant in the New Orleans police force. While trying to prevent the creation of a dangerous weapon, Rambeau is exposed to extra-dimensional energy and as a result she can transmute her body to energy and back again at will.

Rambeau, now known as Captain Marvel, can transform herself into any form of energy within the electromagnetic spectrum including cosmic rays, gamma rays, X-rays, ultraviolet radiation, visible light and electricity. She is invisible and intangible in many of her energy forms, she also has the ability to project these energies from her body while she is in human form, usually in the form of energy blasts from her hands.

Starting in September 2013, Rambeau will appear as one of the lead characters in the Marvel NOW! relaunch of Mighty Avengers comics, acting as the team’s field leader under the new codename Spectrum.
