With the influx of female characters making their way into the comic book medium these days, with lots of thanks to Disney (Marvel) making it so that the female character shows more of a “character side” as they have never before, we wanted to make sure to recognize some of the keys players. We completely understand that female characters have been around since the inception of comic books (no need for a history lesson, stop typing that email or Facebook post), but there is a movement happening in the past few years to the likes we have never really seen in case you haven’t realized it. Disney put a female lead in its new Star Wars movie, now the next Star Wars movie (Rouge One) will ALSO be a female lead. They know what they’re doing and their comics are following the same guidelines. So as is everyone else in the comic book industry. Much like what always happens with InvestComics and everyone following us or emulating. We’re flattered though. Like Disney.
Listed below are some new comics, some old comics and characters WE like. This will be the first installment of more Female character checklist to come. Of course we will in FACT not have some of your favorites here, but all in due time. Relax. Just breathe. Deep breaths. No emails, no Facebook post, Tweets, Instagram notes. Breathe……breathe.
Female Comic Characters – Checklist
Daredevil #111 (2008) – The first appearance of Lady Bullseye. Ed Brubaker writes, and an awesome Marco Djurdjevic cover.
Daredevil #254 (1988) – An InvestComics favorite throughout the years. Typhoid Mary’s first appearance. John Romita Jr art and cover, Ann Nocenti writes.
Deadpool’s Secret Secret Wars #2 (2015) – Gwenpool’s first ever appearance (cover only WITH name “Gwenpool”)
Howard The Duck #1 (2016) – Gwenpool appears on the cover and “inside” the comic. Some say this particular comic is her first appearance. We disagree.
Iron Man #10 (2009) – First appearance of Rescue (Pepper Potts). Writer Matt Fraction, art and cover by Salvador Larroca. Didn’t use the name “Rescue” until Iron Man #14.
Amazing Spider-Man #1 (2014) – First Cindy Moon, A.K.A. Silk. Dan Slott writes. Humberto Ramos pencils.
Amazing Spider-Man #4 (2014) – First appearance of Silk. Dan Slott writes. Humberto Ramos pencils.
Captain Marvel #14 (2013) – First of Kamala Khan as Ms. Marvel.
Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur #1 (2016) – First Moon Girl.
Star Wars #5 & Star Wars #6 (2015) – Cameo and first appearance of Sana Solo.
Darth Vader #3 (2015) – First Doctor Aphra.
Justice League #40 (2015) – Writer Geoff Johns scribes the first appearance of Darkseid’s Daughter; Grail.
Harley Quinn #16 (2015) – The Gang of Harley’s first appear here.
Edge Of Spider-Verse #2 (2014) – First Spider-Gwen.
Marvel Spotlight #32 (1977) – Spider-Woman’s first appearance. Jessica Drew is still around today in the Marvel Universe. Almost 40 years now. Not bad.
Invincible Iron Man #7 (2016) – First appearance of Riri Williams and Tomoe.
Thor God Of Thunder #25 (2014) – Cameo of the first female Thor (Jane Foster).
Thor #1 (2014) – First Full appearance of female Thor (Jane Foster).

Marvel Team-Up #95 (1980) – First Mockingbird appearance. Frank Miller cover.
X-Force #4 (1991) – Here’s the second appearance of Domino. Why mention the second and not the first you ask? Well if you want her first appearance you’ll have to get New Mutants #98. Her first appearance is very expensive, so we wanted to recommend her second.
Batman Adventures #12 (1993) – The first Harley Quinn (non DC continuity)
Batman Harley Quinn (1999) – First Harley Quinn in the DC Unverse.
Avenging Spider-Man #9 (2012) – First Carol Danvers as Captain Marvel.

NYX #3 (2004) – First appearance of Laura Kinney (X-23), A.K.A. All New Wolverine.

Invest wisely. Read comics.
