PostPosted: Wed May 12, 2010 6:18 pm    Post subject: The 20 Hottest redheads in Comics

From ToplessRobot.com, this list tries to cover them all.

We don't understand the current pop culture hate for "gingers." Redheads are awesome, primarily but not entirely because redheads are often devastatingly attractive.

Nowhere is this more true than in the comics. Sure, redheads in comic books tend to show up more than they do in real life, mostly because comics are fantasies (and everyone fantasizes about redheads, except possibly redheads). Besides, a character with red hair is much more fun for a colorist than a bunch of blondes. So pick up a few issues on a Wednesday and you'll get a whole bunch of gorgeous characters (and Guy Gardner) sporting the carrot top.

Here's a list of the 20 hottest redheads in mainstream comics, including both guys and gals

20) Ann O'Brien



Seven feet tall, 250 pounds, red hair and red eyes. No, not Giganta, it's Ann O'Brien from Art Adams's series Monkeyman and O'Brien! A little radiation made her into the ultimate redhead powerhouse who happens to pal around with a gorilla. She has an action figure while a lot of the names on this list don't

19) Archie Andrews


Archie gets by on being Riverdale's resident redhead and the girls seem to fall all over themselves to get a date with him. He's been dating two of them off and on since your grandparents were in the war.

18) Elongated Man


Ever since Identity Crisis in 2004, you'd be hard pressed to say Ralph Dibny's name without inserting the words "poor, poor." The man was the redheaded, super-stretchy detective in the JLA for years, but when his wife was murdered by an old friend, his life fell apart. While trying to pull it together, he died at the end of the yearlong 52 event. Now he's a ghost, but we're seeing precious little of him.

17) Atom Eve


In the ongoing superhero soap opera that is Invincible, Atom Eve is the brainy redhead girlfriend of the protagonist. But she's more than just smart arm candy, she has superpowers of her own and has used them to save the world. It took a LOT of issues, but it really was worth it just to see her and Invincible kiss.

16) Siryn


Siryn was originally just "girl Banshee" in the X-comics, but that changed in a big way once she joined Jamie Madrox's X-Factor Investigations in 2005. Her character got involved in some dynamic stories, including a pregnancy that ended badly (the baby was absorbed back into the father), taking control of the whole detective agency, and having a fling with Deadpool!


15) Banshee


Pretty much the most Irish character in comics, especially when he had the big sideburns and was smoking that little pipe of his. Could have stepped out of Darby O'Gill and the Little People. When he was alive ("was" since he's dead now), his hair was a dark orange while all the redheads in Marvel comics have hair like a maraschino cherry.

14) Fairchild


Gen13 is much like Dawson's Creek, where there are no unattractive people in any corner of the world. Fairchild, while being the shrinking violet of the team, gets to start in about 1,000,000 sexy drawings at comic cons and on the internet. Plus she wears a bathing suit with long sleeves, which is somewhat sexy.


13) Starfox (Eros of Titan)


While most comic readers think he's kinda sleazy, Marvel's Starfox gets more girls on a regular basis than you ever will. His pleasure-inducing powers attract women wherever he goes, and he's not known for saying "no" to them. Redheaded, kind of a jerk, but the ladies love cool Eros.


12) Rose Red


It's even in her name! The reddest redhead in all of Fables, we were introduced to her when she faked her death in the first story arc with her loser boyfriend Jack. She got shipped up to the Farm, with all the animal Fables, and then crushed reeeeal hard on Little Boy Blue. But since she has existed for centuries, she's really the oldest hot redhead on the list.


11) Velocity


Still waiting on that Velocity series that was supposed to spin out of Image's Pilot Season 2007, guys. The super speedster made her debut in 1992 with her team, Cyberforce (she's still with them) and has grown her own fanbase since. But her big boost came when her one-shot was chosen as the hit of Pilot Season, written by Joe Casey and drawn by Kevin Maguire. She may be fast in the comics, but sloooow when coming to comic shelves.


10 ) Medusa


Medusa in Clash of the Titans was cool, but Marvel's Medusa does one better: long, living red hair. She's married to the Inhuman king, Black Bolt, and she spends most of her time in space, and she doesn't fight with the Fantastic Four anymore, but she's still pretty hot. Oh, and she can kill you with her red tresses.


9) Jean Grey


The only reason Jean isn't higher on this list is that when she's not a raging space phoenix, she's kinda dull. Her mental powers are okay, not anything wow-ing, and the only reason people seem to go crazy for her is her red hair. Remember when she was married to Cyclops? It was like that boring couple who didn't talk much and only just watched TV.


Cool Poison Ivy


Take a look on comicartfans.com and check out the truckload of amazing Poison Ivy commissions. Heck, even Uma Thurman couldn't damage her reputation in the awful Batman and Robin.


7) Red Sonja


This Hyrkanian warrior showed us that you don't need to have armor to be a successful fighter, just a bikini made of jangly bits. And when they named her "Red" Sonja, they weren't kidding -- the colorist usually chooses the reddest, bloodiest shade for her hair.

6) Daredevil


Matt Murdock rivals Bruce Wayne for the amount of casual dates he has. I credit the red hair. He's a lawyer by day and a crime-fighting ninja by night, but he's still best defined by the string of romantic relationships he's had, including Russian spies, ninja assassins, and a future druggie.

5) Batwoman


JH Williams III goes a little crazy with the reds in his art. I hope she sticks around and makes a big splash after Bruce Wayne gets back in town.

4) Jimmy Olsen


The only person that's gotten more girls in the DC universe than Jimmy Olsen is Nightwing, and Jimmy did it 1) without being a superhero and 2) while wearing a bowtie for like 50 years. The man is a stud.

3) Black Widow


Black Widow's not having a bad year. Not only is Scarlett Johansson playing her in Iron Man 2, but she's just been handed an ongoing series after two minis. She's one of the highest-profile spies in the Marvel Universe, and she's already dated #5 on this list of redheads, so she'll likely do just fine on her own.


2) Oracle


Be it as Batgirl or Oracle, Barbara Gordon is one of DC's best-looking redheads. She's had good times and bad, but she's never an unwelcome addition to a story. Oracle has been helping the new Batgirl over in her title, but her Birds of Prey cronies are coming back for another Gail Simone/Ed Benes ongoing! Never change, Babs.


1) Mary Jane Watson


Who else did you think was going to be #1 on this list? Dawn? Mary Jane has been the hottest comics redhead since she was introduced in Amazing Spider-Man. She was even hot when Erik Larsen drew her with giant Dolly Parton hair that went down to her waist. She's so hot that Amazing Spider-Man now inserts her every few issues randomly just to point out how hot she is and that Peter Parker should have married her, if he hadn't made that deal with the Devil.

So what do you think?
I think they missed one, but then again, I'm biased.
