I'm 26
I'm usually cool
Sometimes I am hot, steaming hot
The Male me have a shining heart and can fly
The Young female me is, however, horrible and brings a lot of pain

What am I?

    $\begingroup$ My guess is that it's funnier than both 24 and 25. $\endgroup$ – Arturo Torres Sánchez May 6 '15 at 5:53

Well, you must be

Iron!

I'm 26

The element Iron has an atomic number of 26.

I'm usually cool

Iron is a metal, typically cold to the touch.

Sometimes I am hot, steaming hot

I expect this is referring to an iron that you would use to iron clothes, which are incredibly hot.

The Male me have a shining heart and can fly

This is clearly Iron Man, who has his suit featuring the glowing core and the ability to fly with thrusters!

The Young female me is, however, horrible and brings a lot of pain

Well I'm guessing this is referring to Iron Maiden, but I don't know why they're so horrible - they do sing about painful stuff, though. (Or maybe I'm just stupid and this is referring to the torture device, which is clearly both horrible and painful. Thanks dmg and Laconic Droid!)

    $\begingroup$ Because it is not only a great band but also a torture device. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iron_maiden_%28torture_device%29 $\endgroup$ – EvilFonti May 6 '15 at 12:09
  • $\begingroup$ Looks like the comments have been purged, but dmg and Laconic Droid did point out to me the torture device aspect of the clue, so thanks. :) $\endgroup$ – Bailey M May 6 '15 at 16:14
