Female Superheroes Are Front And Centre In Lego Marvel Avengers
Comic books and superheroes have traditionally been thought of a genre for the boys, but with the recent bevy of superhero-themed movies hitting cinemas around the globe, that audience is changing and diversifying.
More and more we're getting some seriously kick-ass leading ladies such as Agent Carter, Jessica Jones, Black Widow, and Scarlet Witch.
It's safe to say women are not longer just damsels in distress or sidekicks.
And the new Lego Marvel Avengers game is putting its female superheroes in the spotlight with tonnes of famous female heroes, plus a few you might not have heard of.
Sure, there's Peggy Carter, Jessica Jones (well, her superhero alter-ego Jewel), Black Widow and Scarlet Witch from the Marvel cinematic universe, but there are also some lesser known additions which have been added to the roster, such as Jane Foster's version of Thor, America Chavez: Miss America, Kamala Khan: Ms. Marvel, Doreen Green: The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, and Ava Ayala: White Tiger.
