Ph.D. Grrlz

My work in progress list of all the female characters who are actually doctors.

Feel free to suggest new girls but they have to actually have a doctorate or they don't count! Also, please provide what they actually do (scientists, medical doctors, etc.).

Awesome list, I never thought of making one with such a theme.

@joygirl:

I thought she was a neurosurgeon. Or a heart surgeon. What I remember most about her was that her mutant powers manifested themselves way late (like into her mid-twenties as opposed to during puberty). I'm going to look into her and get back to you ASAP!

You know it! I gotcha. Just give me a buzz when you need me!!

@heraldofganthet: Do you know what Fairchild has a doctorate in?

And the White Rabbit was a screwy link for me.

@joygirl:

Yeah, I think that since the new White Rabbit's debut, DC Wikia has lumped the two ladies together in the same heading. The good news is that they do segregate them when you click on the links contained therein. So you could get some love there. If not let me know.

As to Fairchild.... genetics maybe....?

Dr. Angora Lapin was the first and most ruthless of the White Rabbit's. She passes the entrance exam.

@joygirl: Not sure what she does, just science stuff that's probably illegal considering she worked for NOWHERE.

Isn't Flash's girlfriend a forensic scientist. I think her name was Patty

Edit: Patty Spivot forensic blood analyst

@dngn4774: I'd like to stick to actual super-characters. I almost didn't add Leslie Thompson and I might remove Rabbit.

Fairchild is pretty awesome. Never kept up with her Gen 13 stuff but she always seemed like a badass.

Do movie versions count?

Do movie versions count?

Who did you have in mind?

Posted by Moonchilde

@joygirl:

Movie Jane Foster is a PHD in Astrophysic. Movie Jean Grey was a Dr. in genetics. Pretty sure movie Invisible Woman was also a Dr., but it's been a long time since I've watched the FF movies, and don't really care enough to go back and re-watch just to find out.

None of those three are doctors in the comics though, so not sure if they would count.
