Fiery Redhead: Comicbooks
  • X-Men: Jean Grey and Rachel Grey Summers, who not only fit the personality trope, but also happen to manifest their powers in the form of giant birds made of fire. However, Jean often subverts the trope, especially in her pre-Phoenix days, when she was one of the most level-headed Marvel superheroines with a personality very reminiscent of the Fantastic Four's team mommy Sue Storm Richards.
    • Rahne Sinclair of The New Mutants (Excalibur, X-Force, X-Factor, New X-Men...) is at once shy, passionate, religious, conflicted, and a redhead. Her fiery personality is hidden under repressive piety most of the time.
    • Irish beauty Theresa Rourke Cassidy (X-Force, X-Factor). You don't want her screaming at you.
  • Ember of ElfQuest.
    • Also from Elf Quest: Redlance is an inversion because he's usually very quiet and shy. Although not when it comes to sex, according to the novelization.
  • Superman character Maxima, who is definitely not a hero, but a spitfire.
  • Red Sonja.
  • Mariah from The Warlord
  • Ember from the Dutch comic 'Storm'. Her Dutch name is Roodhaar, which translates to Redhair.
  • Spider-Man: Mary Jane "Face it, tiger -- you just hit the jackpot!" Watson.
  • Natasha Romanov, the Black Widow.
    • Started out with black hair and was only "revealed" as actually a redhead in her ASM #86 makeover. Did not become appreciably fierier after the change.
  • Medusa of The Inhumans
  • Fantastic Four: Frankie Raye, who went on to become a Fiery Redhead.
  • Patsy Walker, Hellcat, formerly married to matching Fiery Redhead Daimon "Son of Satan/Hellstorm" Hellstrom.
  • Chili Storm, the friendly nemesis of Millie the Model.
  • Shanna The She-Devil, when her hair is properly colored.
  • Bethany Cabe.
  • Babs Gordon, in the current continuity (originally, she was a Brainy Brunette; Batgirl's red hair was a wig attached to the cowl).
  • Little Orphan Annie has all the trappings of a 10-year-old girl.
  • The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck: Hortense McDuck.
  • Blackhawk's Chuck is a male example.
  • Guardians of the Galaxy: Nikki.
  • The titular character of Brenda Starr: Reporter.

  • Daredevil and Dum-Dum Dugan. Irish-American.
  • Dark Action Girl Ansea Latal from Le Scorpion.
  • Sophie Otterloop from Cul De Sac.
  • Chassis.
  • Mera, wife of Aquaman.
  • Wally West, the first Kid Flash and third Flash, is quite impulsive, though less so after some Character Development. This contrasts him with his slow-thinking mentor Barry Allen, the second Flash.
  • Lady Rawhide, even if it is a dye job in her case. Anita even notes how her personality seems to change when she is in her Lady Rawhide disguise.
  • Marine Sergeant Rachel Cole-Alves from The Punisher. Took on the Punisher in a fist fight, it doesn't get more fiery than that.
  • Dr. Caitlin Fairchild. Aka, "Red".
  • Guy Gardner. Described by Nash as "Loud, and angry, and obnoxious, and ginger!"
