I was rather surprised to find that I didn't recognize the first few names on the list, and further surprised that I only recognized two or three of the names on the entire list. However, that was only at first glance. Granted, this is only one person's assertion of who the top ten women comic book characters are, what I realized after reading the reasoning behind them, is that popularity does not make someone the best. The "Geek Girls Network" had interesting and valid reasoning for why they valued these characters. Some qualities that listed were personality, independence, and power. I'm sure this list would vary site to site, depending on who the readers and writers are, however this is clearly coming from a female source, so I found it interested to see who public women supported and why.
