Let’s face it, superhero movies and TV series have always attracted us with it’s bizarre concepts of super powers and action-packed scenes. But of course we shouldn’t forget about the eye candy right alongside the main superheroes, equally kicking villain butts. With their irresistible charm, and good looks that can kill, sometimes even literally, then maybe it’s high time we honor these women and their huge roles for the popular superhero franchises. Here are the top 10 sexiest superheroes played by actresses.
10. Alicia Silverstone as Batgirl
Not a lot of actresses can pull off the elusive character that is Batgirl in the Batman and Robin franchise. Her role was just as significant as the famous duo themselves. With her silky hair cascading down her face as it is blown backwards because of the wind, who would have thought riding a motorcycle would be that sexy. That would further be proven in a few moments.
9. Michelle Pfeiffer as Catwoman
The character Catwoman is already the epitome of sexy in the superhero universe. Her sly moves and skin-tight leather outfits already accentuate the sexiness of the character, let alone have it played by drop dead gorgeous women in the acting industry. Sexy actress Michelle Pfeiffer is arguably one of the best Catwoman actresses despite the film being way back when. However, she still manages to claim a spot because of her unbeatable cat-like sex appeal.
8. Jennifer Garner as Elektra
Her name is just as electrifying as her character, Jennifer Garner is one sexy babe in that skin-tight outfit displaying her martial arts moves. If you’re in a bit of a conflict between whether good or bad is sexier, then a mix of the two, or perhaps a character like Elektra who is still confused of her identity, would be the perfect match for you. Her sexiness alone brings so much to the table and she packs a good punch as well. Talk about being “elektra-fied” a thousand times.
7. Rebecca Romjin as Mystique
Although the most recent Mystique was played by the beautiful Jennifer Lawrence, Rebecca Romjin will always be the best at playing her role as Mystique. It’s pretty obvious that she’s one sexy babe we all want to cower to. it’s already hard enough to seduce people with skin-tight outfits and out of this world super powers. Imagine what it was like to wear that costume and heavy make-up to pull off Mystique’s alien-like look. If she can pull that look off, then she can pull off any look.
6. Charlize Theron as Aeon Flux
The ever so sexy Charlize Theron with her signature chic bob managed to win everyone’s hearts when she played the character Aeon Flux in the movie of the same name. Who would have thought that a dystopian future would look so damn sexy with her presence around. One can only imagine the lengths that she had to go t be able to play her extremely flexible and agile character.
5. Anne Hathaway as Catwoman
The second Catwoman character to appear in our list, the beautiful Anna Hathaway took our breaths away, comment if you noticed the lame pun, with her sexy physique when she played the role in the final installment of the incredibly famous Batman trilogy. Her hard work has paid off as she looks completely stunning, wowing the audience with her pale skin complementing her jet black skin-tight outfits. Riding a motorcycle will forever go down in the books as one of the sexiest scenes to play in an action film.
4. Halle Berry as Catwoman
And the award for the sexiest actress to ever play Catwoman in none other than Halle Berry. The top four actresses in this list are pretty much well-known as sex symbols in the industry and it’s no surprise that they’re at the top of the food chain when it comes to sexily portraying superheroes. Although she has had many critics when it came to her performance in this film, she still look smokin’ hot in her leather outfit and we wouldn’t mind having to watch it just because she’s there.
3. Jessica Alba as Invisible Woman
Although she is not regarded as a current sex symbol, she was still one during her peak as an actress and there wasn’t anyone who didn’t know her name. Her role as the Invisible Woman in the film franchise of Fantastic Four solidified her status as an actress and we would only hope to see more of her in the future. Her signature honey colored tan and her stunning good looks give her the number three spot in this list.
2. Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft
Obviously we wouldn’t forget the original sex symbol herself, Angelina Jolie, with her luscious thick lips and smokin’ hot body. Although her character may not have superpowers, she still deserves a top spot because of her fighting skills that bring us back to memory lane when we first watched Lara Croft kick some bad guy butt.
1. Scarlett Johannson as the Black Widow
And the number one spot goes to the current sex symbol in the industry, Scarlett Johannson. Her household name is arguably synonymous to sexy and for good reason as well. Her drop dead gorgeous body is already enough to show the world why she is deserving of her title. Add her killer good looks and she practically has it all, no matter what color her hair is. With the immense success of The Avengers, we can only imagine what she will do next.
