The superhero genre has thrived since the turn of the century. The record-breaking blockbusters of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and DC’s Extended Universe, Marvel and DC’s adult and children’s television series, multiple video games across numerous platforms, and plethora of comic books have all successfully extended their reach beyond the traditional comic book reader to attract new audiences across a variety of media. In this chapter, I focus on what I believe to be some dramatic changes that are happening in female representation and the female demographic within the context of the genre, particularly over the last decade. The emphasis is on the female superhero across comics, film, and television and the systemic changes that have been (slowly) occurring in the stories, in the creative industries that create the stories, and in the world of fans who consume the stories.
