    Shouldn't this thread be renamed "Ororo Munroe is now the 6th female with the most number of appearances in comics" ?
    We wouldn't want to mislead unsuspecting posters with that false news.

    #3 Beast (2839)
    #4 Storm (2659)
    #5 Professor X (2244)
    #6 Jean Grey (2158)

    #9 Colossus (2081)
    #10 Nightcrawler (1895)
    #11 Rogue (1591)
    #12 Kitty (1566)
    #13 Magneto (1515)
    #14 Emma (1485)
    #15 Gambit (1128)

    Surprised that Rogue is not in the top 10.
    Wolverine has more appereances than Storm and Jean Grey or Cyclops and Magneto combined. And Rogue, Kitty and Emma together.
    That's right! Al Gore invented the internet, let's all go kick his ass!

    I got your inconvenient truth right here, motherf*&%!

    #1. Invisible Woman - 2,878 appearances (#11 overall)
    #2. Storm - 2,659 (#13)
    #3. Jean Grey - 2,158 (#16)
    #4. Scarlet Witch - 1,971 (#24)
    #5. Wasp - 1,944 (#25)
    #6. Mary Jane - 1,925 (#27)
    #7. Rogue - 1,591 (#32)
    #8. Kitty Pryde - 1,566 (#33)
    #9. Black Widow - 1,521 (#34)
    #10. Aunt May - 1,511 (#36)
    #11. Emma Frost - 1,485 (#37)
    #12. Ms. Marvel - 1,452 (#38)
    #13. She-Hulk - 1,368 (#41)
    #14. Psylocke - 963 (#54)
    #15. Spider-Woman - 791 (#68)
    #16. Hellcat - 747 (#71)
    #17. Betty Brant - 742 (#72)
    #18. Polaris - 731 (#75)
    #19. Wolfsbane - 696 (#79)
    #20. Crystal - 694 (#81)
    #21. Jubilee - 685 (#82)
    #22. Gwen Stacy - 677 (#83)
    #23. Betty Ross - 676 (#84)
    #24. Dazzler - 668 (#85)
    #25. Mystique - 646 (#88)
    #26. Magik - 615 (#95)
    #27. Medusa - 605 (#97)
    #28. Tigra - 604 (#98)
    #29. Moonstar - 595 (#100)

    I highlighted in bold the ones that are enhanced & considered "super beings". Right outside the top 100 are the likes of Rachel Grey, Valkyrie, Mockingbird, Black Cat, & Sif, just to name a few. This means that roughly only 25% of Marvel's most oft-used characters, or 1 out of 4, are female. That number gets even worse & drops to about 20%, or 1 out of 5, when you look at just the top 50. Looking through the eyes of equality, and just plain doing what is right, that doesn't seem very encouraging to me.


    As others have surmised, I believe the number(s) originally cited represent reprints too, such as TPBs & international copies that are published in different non-English languages. I suppose it's even possible that alternate covers could qualify, but I can't say for sure. I'm not even sure how the numbers above are arrived at, TBH with ya, so take them for they're worth - just as a loose guide, but nothing really... too "official".

    It would be interesting though, to see how DC's bigger female names (Wonder Woman, Lois Lane, Catwoman, Batgirl, Supergirl, Black Canary, Zatanna, Huntress, Hawkgirl, Power Girl, Vixen, etc.) compare, with their revised numbers.

    11. Martha Kent - 845 (#36)
    12. Saturn Girl - 814 (#41)
    13. Wonder Girl - 672 (#50)
    14. Zatanna - 649 (#52)

    So really both Wonder Woman and Lois Lane beat out Storm.

    Also, Veronica has 5,107 appearances and Betty is at 5,104.

    This drops Storm down to at least #6.


    Thanks for posting the lists PSINGRAPHd and Swashbuckler. at least, we also have the list of the actual appearances original comics. Storm could probably get higher on the list you both have posted in the near future.

    not really. The list I have posted may include reprints but it applies to all comic characters
    Ororo Munroe: I have no powers, my body cannot fly. But I no longer mind, for in my heart and soul -- where it truly matters -- I soar higher than the stars!

    http://www.comicvine.com/x-treme-x-men/4050-9411/ & http://www.comicvine.com/x-treme-x-men/4050-45380/ etc

    Almost every important character's appearance number is overstated on CV more or less actually.
    I have kind of thought the same thing. It's possible Ororo has the most but CV is definitely not the most credible source for the appearance count.
