Female superheroes

Not sure if this fits in parenting, but here goes:

Dd1 (5) has been invited to a superheroes party next month. She wants to go as a girl/woman superhero, but the only ones we can think of are Violet and Elastagirl from the Incredibles. Superbaby is a possibility - not sure if it's a female or male baby though

Are there any other female superheroes that spring to mind? She looked at me daft when I said there was a character called wonderwoman....

What does she look like then?

sparklymieow Sun 24-Jul-05 18:52:33

like superman but in a skirt!!

Oh Elastagirl is the best female super by far I'd say! Dp fancied Supergirl in the film.

Bump - any more ideas?

Wonderwoman is in the Justice League cartoon at the moment

How about one of the female X-Men?

helsy Sun 24-Jul-05 18:57:25

Soupdragon, didn't know there were any! WWW can't get into your link.

Dd1 mentioned batgirl and I thought she was making it up

SoupDragon Sun 24-Jul-05 18:58:41

A Powerpuff girl?

WideWebWitch Sun 24-Jul-05 18:59:01

OK, here's another

WideWebWitch Sun 24-Jul-05 19:01:29

Catwoman? All a bit leathery and pervy though! Well, Halle Berry was (just said to ds, hang on, just want to post a link to batgirl adn he said 'is that someone's mumsnet name?' had to explain no, I meant a link to a Batgirl picture!

WideWebWitch Sun 24-Jul-05 19:02:07

Surprised there isn't a batgirl here.

SoupDragon Sun 24-Jul-05 19:03:25

Actually, batgirl looks quite good! Isn't catwoman a villain rather than a superhero?

Nbg Sun 24-Jul-05 19:04:56

Was CrystalTips a supergirl?

helsy Sun 24-Jul-05 19:05:55

She was rather super, yes.

helsy Sun 24-Jul-05 19:11:39

Does Mona the Vampire count as a superhero?

Nbg Sun 24-Jul-05 19:12:33

I thought of Dora but she's not very super is she.

helsy Sun 24-Jul-05 19:17:11

Dd1 was rather scornful at your suggestion, nbg. Sorry.

Nbg Sun 24-Jul-05 19:18:33

Nbg Sun 24-Jul-05 19:19:05

I'm just trying to look through the kids channels on sky to see if I can find any.
