1. Wonder Woman -- I don't think anyone other than William Moulton Marston really "gets" the character, but when it comes to strong women in comics the might is spelled out in Princess Diana's codename.
2. Mary Marvel -- The original Supergirl.
3. Rene Titanon -- Greatest Women's Wrestling Champ of all time, well... next to Trish Stratus anyway.
4. M -- Her background is as tangled and tortured as any X character, but I always found Monet St. Croix's haughty attitude a refreshing change from the usual super-heroine pluck.
5. Mammy Yokum -- The Lil Abner matriarch possesses the deadliest left-hook in comics, the "Goodnight Irene"
