From birth, girls are a slight minority due to both natural factors (the human sex ratio has been observed since the 1700s as approximately 1,050 boys for every 1,000 girls) and due to sex selection on the part of parents.
Girls are less often encouraged to pursue sports, with the exception of sports that might be considered "feminine," such as figure skating or gymnastics; or those considered "gender-neutral," such as tennis.
Portrayals of girls may reflect their standing in the artists' culture, and a brief overview of different views of girls in different art periods gives a sense of girls' roles in societies around the world and at different points in time.

These three girls for the first time attested that a female character was capable of becoming a hero, based on the idea that anime heroes do not necessarily have to exhibit 'masculinity' or get involved in physical battles, but rather mental strength.
Although these heroes are no longer teenage girls, it may not be so difficult to associate the empowered teenager heroes in the 1990s with women warriors wearing hard mecha-suits in the positions of command.
Based on the examination of female heroes in anime over time, it may be more desirable that, instead of asexual heroes who ignore sexuality altogether, female heroes embody the female heroism, which merges "feminine" and "masculine" incorporated into their own sexuality.

The Legion of Substitute Heroes is a group of fictional characters in the future of the DC Comics universe.

 PlanetPapers - Heroes and Heroines
Hero, heroine, whatever-we read about them because we want to see somebody take hold of or question his or her life, whether it's his life or her life.
Heroes have some kind of male coolness that sets them apart from other characters, and this is why we like or admire them.
This isn't because heroines are wimps, not necessarily, it's because there has to be a reason for a hero to be a girl, and when a hero becomes a girl, we tend to give her a typical girl's qualities.

 Gitsie Girl » Heroes in Lost’s World?
Because it suddenly struck me that Heroes’ fantastical premise — that human beings are breaking out with superpowers as an evolutionary response to environmental changes (overpopulation, global warming, war) threatening the survival of the species — is conspicuously similar to the sci-fi conceit of Lost’s Hanso Foundation/Dharma Initiative mythology.
THEORY The mysterious island on Lost was a mad-scientist laboratory focused on accelerating human evolution that created the superpowered heroes on Heroes.
But I think there’s enough reason to be suspicious, especially since the two shows in question share one unquestionable link: the creator of Heroes, Tim Kring, and the co-creator of Lost, Damon Lindelof, used to work together on Crossing Jordan and remain good friends.

That original series instantly became a fan favorite for its melancholy, haunting, authentically spooky tone, which evoked Eastern ghost stories and Eastern religions equally in creating a world where there were no apparent heroes or villains, just selfish supernatural powers at war with each other on the fringes of humanity's perceptions.
Much of her appealing creepiness and implacable inhumanity slipped away as she started attending junior high and masquerading as human in order to get close to some of the Shinma she was hunting.
Her silent companion Larva ("Lava" in the dub) took off his mask and spoke, revealing himself as a blue-haired man in the bland/pretty mode common to shoujo ("girls'") comics, and Miyu herself dropped into monster-a-week mode as she hunted down and banished a new Shinma in each episode.

Speaking over the phone from her New York City apartment, the de facto frontwoman of female rap trio Northern State is explaining her frustrations with participating in a genre that’s not exactly known for being a bastion of female empowerment.
Just check out the first single “Girl for All Seasons,” on which the ladies turn rap-rock convention on its head with a scathing indictment of society’s beauty myths (e.g., “Girl, who are you pleasin’/Starin’ in the mirror, squeezin’ and tweezin’?”) that includes some of the most explicitly pro-girl rhetoric to hit radio — ever.
“Girl for All Seasons” and “Don’t Look Down” keep the group’s feminism fierce and fun, while “Nice with It” and “Time To Rhyme” are their smartest party-starters to date.
