It's a wonderful time to be a geek! That statement is starting to become some kind of mantra to wake up to, but, still, the sentiment stands!

With the monumental shift in attitudes towards comic-book geekdom, we've seen box-office records smashed, comic-book TV series changing the way series are conceived and award nominated performers bringing their immeasurable talents to costumed capers.

Not to mention some of the most beautiful actresses in the Hollywood are heeding the call of heroism, and are being drafted into various cinematic universes to kick as much ass and take as few names as their male counterparts!

But whether it's looking badass on the battlefield or like a million dollars on the red carpet, the injection of a classy, sexy and strong feminine presence is well welcome in a field filled with sweaty muscles and explosions.

So let's have a look at some of the ladies of the MCU and the burgeoning DCCU combining sexy and classy, out of the garb of their comic-book counterparts:
