Move over Batman and Captain America, the super hero of the day is my mummy. Ok... so most people probably think their mothers have superpowers. How else do you explain being able to juggle a job, home and kids?

And while motherhood in itself is an impressive responsibility, Working Mother magazine decided to make a list of the 50 most powerful mothers of 2016 to celebrate Mother's Day on 8 May — women who aim for success, whether on the career or the care giver front.

This year's list (alphabetical) has some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry alongside politicians and businesswomen.

The multi-award winning singer Adele, who kicks off the list, is mother to three-year-old Angelo. She previously told Vogue magazine that being his mother is her most fulfilling achievement. "[Angelo] makes me very proud of myself. When I became a parent, I felt like I was truly living. I had a purpose, where before I didn't."

Beyonce shows us just who runs the world by confirming her place of the top 50 after rocking the music charts with her newest tracks from Lemonade. Despite having a busy schedule, the singer always seems to make time for her four-year-old daughter Blue Ivy.

The list also included Cate Blanchett, who is mother to three children, and Viola Davis, who when she is not teaching us How To Get Away With Murder, is busy playing dress up with her five-year-old daughter Genesis.

Mother to two children, funny woman Melissa McCarthy also made the list along with Carrie Underwood, Kerry Washington, who is expecting her second child, and Victoria Beckham who is mother to three adolescent boys (whew!) and a four-year-old daughter.
