Here is the list of some badass female marvel characters:

1. Black Widow

Black Widow

She also goes by Natasha Romanoff’s name as a master spy. She is the only female character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that was part of the Avengers films and fought with them but did not have any powers or vests to fight back. Since she worked with many spy organizations and had to go through a lot throughout her life to save herself, she gained extra skills, very few Avengers had. Although she used some gadgets created by Iron Man, aka Tony Stark, the major weapon she used was her body and mind. 

2. Gamora


A green-skinned alien who looked for washing her sins did by her and her adopted father, Thanos. She was a personal assassin to Thanos, who made him do many sins. She is an alien, and she is smart.

3. Captain Marvel

We believe her powers are a little outlandish.
