Best Marvel Comics Characters


The Top TenXW


There always is Batman and Spiderman who come down to the greatest superheroes of all time. I definitely do love Batman, but not only can he not be the greatest superhero while he has no superpowers, but Spiderman is ten thousand times Batman will ever be. He is the most relateable, heartfelt, and amazing character anyone could ever think of creating. Everyone knows him. His comics do amazingly well, and even though most of the Spider-Man movies don't do the greatest job of displaying and embracing who Peter Parker/Spidey is, they still are (most of them) great movies and some of the best comic book movies I've ever seen. Spider-Man is on the number one spot of this list, and for many reasons we can keep going on and on, he is here to stay.

Spiderman is the single greatest superhero ever. He is the center of Marvel's popularity. Spidey also has the most awesome Marvel villain of all, Venom. Spiderman is the coolest hero I have ever known and all of his movies kick ass. Tobey Maguire was so great as Spiderman, and Andrew Garfield was great too. SPIDERMAN RULES!

Spider-man is my hero. Every teenager with dreams of doing heroism relates to Spidey's determinations.

A remarkable and interesting character with the most badass powers that enables him to showcase fierce and exciting fighting techniques on the screen. The story of Wolverine and basically everything about him makes him the most intense, grittiest and fascinating character in the marvel universe. The Wolverine 2013 is also one of the best movies. Amazing!

Wolverine is an amzing character! Claws make him one of the most violent heroes ever to exist. A rule to me is BLOOD makes a character (Wolverine) awesome!
Wolverine is like the BEST OF THE BEST X-Men Charcter. Wolverine is amazing because of his claws and the power to grab and kill right away.

Wolverines a beast! IF you have read the civil war wolverine series you know what I am talking about. That might just be the best one I have read so far - challey

He's the best there is at what he does and what he does is amazing

Are you kidding me deadpool should be number 1 his health regeneration is faster than wolverines and he survived the battle against hulk when wolverine threw him at hulk and wolverine was the only other character that survived.

The funniest ninja on the planet that is getting his own video game!

He should at least be in the top 5! He is Deadpool. He is not the average superhero. He is the one that breaks the mold of average superheroes. He isn't as serious as the other heroes.

Deadpool sounds really hilarious and awesome and insane yet still totally cool. He should at least be higher than number 5. I can't wait until the movie comes out later this week. - Anonymousxcxc

Watch any movie or read any comic, it takes multiple heroes/characters to bring down the HULK, or to calm him down. He destroys anything or anyone in his path, the only time I believe where he was in trouble was against COSMIC Spiderman, but please... that's pretty weak. HULK is clearly the #1

Dude, hulk has infinite strength and is known for these deeds. Holding up a mountain, killing the red king, taking down almost all the marvel characters, and (My personal favorite) cracking onslaught's indestructible armor. All the avengers couldn't do it but then they just let out hulk.

HULK is unique in any fashion. A potential rival to Vector the Crocodile, he can smash, thump his chest, lift anything more than two times his very heavy weight and HULK Smash anyone or anything. He is the greatest Marvel hero of all time.

Hulk is the greatest character ever. He can destroy everyone with a single finger.

5Iron Man

Iron man is the coolest guy ever he has 42 different powerful
Armors, he can even control it in at the same time. He is the one who
Save the entire city and the avengers in the movie the avengers.

This should totally be #1. Tony Stark is like the best Marvel character ever. He may be a bit arrogant and the is the whole playboy thing, but he defeats bad guys all thanks to his genius.

When I was young, long before the movie, I wanted to be Tony Stark. - RdrTech

He should be number 2

6Captain America

Though Siderman's great, Cap. is the hero that makes others look like students. He practically is the face of Marvel, underdog to hero. Everyone's favorite story, he's above all the modest and true hero. Not wanting to do it for someone, not revenge, plain and simple. Humbleness is the ruler of great qualities, he takes the gold, silver, and bronze for that. So great that it goes around.

Cap has a pure heart, and his movies are amazing. Every time you see him, you learn a valuable life lesson. We aren't looking for the more powerful characters in the Marvel Universe. We are looking for the true hero who displays what being a superhero and a leader is just as well as Superman, and does the best job of displaying what being a true soldier is like.
Come on, guys. He deserves to be at least on the #3 spot.

The movies...
The comics...
The game...
What more can this superhero do
He is the first avenger!
My brother hates him whats up with that!

Captain America is the strongest marvel hero

Venom is so cool. He is one of the most iconic villains ever.

Venom is off the chain. I especially like Flash Thompson as Venom.

I think venom is the best because he turns big and small

Venom beat him first

Virtually a god, a mystical hammer, can control the weather with super strength to boot. You just should not logically be able to beat Thor.

Undeniably one of the greatest Marvel Characters ever. The Avengers would be barely anything without at least some version of Thor whether Jane Foster or Odinson. The concept of not being able to lift his hammer, Mjolnir, unless you're worthy, is one of the best twists for a superhero and allows character development for others besides Thor him/herself. This hero deserves a spot on the top 5. Come on, my people. You're seriously gonna let DEADPOOL be taking a higher position than THOR?!?!?

We are talking about strength and Spiderman does not deserve any of that. Thor is definitely the one unless One Above All just destroys him from all his comics. Thor wields one of the strongest weapons in the universe, a hammer called Mjlonir.

9Ghost Rider

Ghost rider is bad ass in fighting he will beat any character you name.

Ghost Rider can beat anyone in fighting with his fire.

One of the coolest and strongest characters in marvel! Thor, hulk and dr strange are nothing compared to the power of the rider

Ororo Munroe is the most recognizeable female mutant in marvel universe. I like her mohawk look and the different costumes that she wear. I like her style. And most of all, I like her attitude. Her powers are really awesome. She is even considered an omega level mutant. She's my favorite X-man character and her team X-men gold is my favorite too. Storm has a great heart. - RLAAMJR

Though she is claustrophobic, she tries to be strong and fight against evil at all costs. She tries to see through a problem and find solutions analytically unlike Wolverine. Her ability to control the mother nature is one of the most powerful abilities one can have as a mutant.

Probably the most powerful female X-Man along with Jean Grey, Strom is classified as an Omega level mutant. Seriously, what mutant can create tornadoes, storms, and flash floods with a wave of their hand? Her will is impressive and her skills as a thief are one of the best in the Marvel universe. She's way more powerful than her teammates, if you compare her to Nightcrawler, or even Colossus or Iceman.

Storm is the epitome of strong, independent women. She is absolutely unmatched in beauty, grace and power.
Although, they could have chosen a better person to play her in the X-Men Movies... Halle Berry was sorry as hel.. - Celestius

The Newcomers

?Iron Patriot
?Red Hulk

The Contenders


This is unbelievable. How does Daredevil not even appear on the top tens? Let's go guys! This guy is legendary! There is no way that Venom should get the 8th spot and Daredevil is on the Honorable Mentions.

Of course daredevil should be up top he's blind and an amazing crime fighting hero I think he's one of the best marvel superheroes

Part ninja, part acrobat. Superhuman senses and balance. Matt Murdock is the ultimate underdog in the MU.

He is boss a blind guy who is a crime fighter now thaw just pure"OP"

13Green Goblin

Best villain in history, surpassing Darth Vader easily in my opinion. If there is a Spiderman movie in the DVD shops, cinemas; or a videogame dedicated to Spiderman, it is all out there thanks to good old Norman Osborn. I have read almost 500 old Amazing Spider-Man comics. Read about at least 600 characters in marvel universe but none was as impressive as Green Goblin and his genius.

Total beast just awesomely creepy

14Silver Surfer

The most powerful marvel superhero! Able to manipulate elements of earth through his cosmic power. He can't die, doesn't need food nor water. Above all, he's a surfer


HAWKEYE is awesome, I love the avengers and I love archers
