Top Ten Comic Book Superheroes

"A superhero is a fictional character who is noted for feats of courage and nobility and who usually has a colorful name and costume which serve to conceal their true identity, and abilities beyond those of normal human beings.

The word superhero originated with Superman, who debuted in 1938, and the stories of superheroes - ranging from episodic adventures to decades-long sagas - have become an entire genre of fiction that has dominated American comic books and crossed over into several other media." (source Wikipedia: Superhero).

The Top Ten

BATMAN is the best because without superpowers, he is of the level of other superheroes. He has solid personality and he is a very good detective. Without him, Justice league can't sustain. He has extra-ordinary skills and always remains two-step ahead of everyone :)!
Batman murks superman any day. He fights the same dudes as superman and does just as good as him without superpowers.
The great ranking!
I like it very much... Batman... Really an ultimate star
But I think superman should've gained more votes
Not just batman, but the charecters in the comics are all so well thought out and developed

2Super Commando Dhruva
Super Commando Dhruva is actually one of those heroes who has not been inspired from any other character in the world and has a very unique Identity. Unlike any other Super Hero, Super Commando Dhruva, doesn't carry any weapons, except his Star Belt which he uses in extreme emergencies, and instead uses anything appropriate that finds on situation as a weapon. His main power is that he is exceptionally witty and sometimes even overcome situations without use of any weapons. Many of his foes who were once danger for society have become his friends and help him in missions from time to time, all because how he tackled them, and the self realization that they are doing wrong. I don't think any other comic super hero has ever made his foe a friend. That's why I say he is very unique, right above the list with Batman.
Rank doesn't matter for me because the comics readers in India are very less in comparison to western countries. And the comics readers outside India are not aware about Super Commando Dhruv because we don't have any movie or T.V. series, English comics or something like that. But as I have read both indian and foreign comics I am quite sure that Dhruv is in the top league with Batman and Spider man and much better than anyone else.
Best selling hero in India.
The best of All the heroes... he is the superhero closest to reality
More comments about Super Commando Dhruva

He is what I how think a real person would be if he or she became a superhero, because he's not perfect, he gets scared and feels gulit, and lots of it. Plus he hates being a superhero sometimes, but he feels responsible because of his superpowers, so he can never quit.
Spider-man is icon superhero in the world... He's humorous, responsibility, care ^^ much women fall in love with him... So I want like him. He's Smart, Strong, just a nerd, ^^ low profile.
Spiderman is the best hands down he can crawl on walls, pickup cars, swing on webs and he gets a ton of hot chicks.

He is the best! Loved him since I was little and is just awesome
More comments about Spider-Man

Superman is the number one hero of all time, he stands for truth & justice.
He has the ability to rescue in one part of the world and fly to the other side of the world in a blink of an eye to rescue others there.
Superman never crosses the line unless under the spell off some kind of kryptonite, all other superheros would cross the line to destroy evil.
Batman comes in second for his morals but without his toys and special ancient martial arts training he would be nothing and is no match for superman in any way.
Superman is better than any other superheroes ever created. His leadership, his will and his never ending battle for truth, justice and the American Way is what makes him so awesome.


He's basically the first superhero ever created; if it weren't for Superman there wouldn't be no Batman, Wonder Woman, Captain America, Flash, Spider-Man, Green Lantern, etc. He is also the most kind and moral superhero out there. Superman is who I inspire to be like, but not in having super-powers; but in making the right decisions. Superman is an inspiration to me, and is who humanity should strive to be like. Superman is the perfect superhero.
He started it all
More comments about Superman

Maybe he isn't the best ever, but he definitely deserves to be above SUPERMAN. Superman is a boring superhero because he has no dark side, he is too OP, and he isn't interesting to read about because he has no depth! He's just one-dimensional. So maybe Wolverine doesn't deserve to be number one, but there's no way we can let him be below Superman.
Its not about who can win... The story of wolverine and the x men is by far the best... Wolverine should be number one I mean he's a total badass
Wolverine is the best, He is awesome Ugh I hate all the DC people in the top two people who have no clue about comics just vote for them because they are the most popular to seven year olds. GO MARVEL!
He is the only one who is immortal

6Iron Man
Tony Stark is the Marvel equivalent of DC's Bruce Wayne. His awesome suits gives variety and we all know, "variety is the spice of death. "
He is just one great kickass character! Love his style attitude and everything about him his amazing... He is never dark oriented.. And an awesome show off!
Kick anyone's ass with gadgets and gizmos he even defeated the hulk
Genius Billionaire playboy philanthropist!

THe most powerful hero

8The Hulk
Hulk can take on any revenge and any battle if ya like green he would be the kind of guy to look up to. What will the incredible hulk do now
Hulk is the strongest one there is. He is this because as a fight goes on he never gets tired and his strength increases as he gets madder. So in essence, Hulks power is not limited. I have never seen any being quite like him and have been a fan of him for 18 years now. He is and always will be "The Strongest One There Is! "
There's not much to say about the Hulk, except that his brutality and strength simply make an enjoyable read. When Hulk takes a hit, you'll see the damage.
The madder Hulk gets, the stronger Hulk gets.

9Captain America
Captain America is one of the only comic book heroes that could actually be called a hero in real life. It's his personality, the grace in his eye, the pride in his heart and his courage that makes Captain great. As opposed to supermans strength or batmans gadgets. Captain America to me is what a hero should be.
He's got a shield!
He was my first favorite superhero and I will miss him.
Who's better than the Cap? Nobody! He has leadership and great strength. He'll do anything for his people.
More comments about Captain America

He just not solve the problem. He Destroy the problem
His passion against crime is amazing.
Great work by raj comics.
The defender of night, Doga. This is not as perfect as super commando dhruv but take my words you will fell the bullet power while reading it. A superhero who don't talk when he shoots.

The Contenders

There is a zepplin song pretty much dedicated to him. Now that's just badass. I still think captain America is better because he's an American hero and he's all American
Odin- The Halls of Valhalla- the Majik Mjilnor- the Son of a God- lightning power- Thor rules


I love him: the character, the way that connects north mithology and scientific tecnology. Wonderful the ship between Thor, Loki and Odin. A beautiful story.
Thor is the best!

12The Flash
The Flash deserves the title of The Best Superhero ever. He is the fastest, and coolest. He isn't superstrong but doesn't need to be because he can overpower strength with his speed. One flash died to save earth. He is just plain the best. Ever.
The speed force gives him so many more powers than just speed too. He can phase through objects, travel through time and to other dimensions, and can turn invisible. And if its Wally West we're talking about, he's got the funniest quips in all of comics (sorry spidey and dadpool). Add to that one of the best rogue's galleries and he by far the best.
The Flash's speed would put Superman scrunched up in a corner, and he would be able to do anything to stop all the others because of his incredibly fast thinking! He's by far the #1!
More comments about The Flash

13Green Lantern
Green Lantern is the best super her ever! I got to write an essay on any super hero I wanted and I chose Green Lantern. He should totally be number 1!
Simply a very awesome idea for a super hero. He should definitely have a higher vote than Aqualad, Goku, and Cat Woman, if not wonder woman as well.
Green Lantern is the best super hero of all time ever.
More comments about Green Lantern

14Wonder Woman
She's a super-powered amazon with powers and weapons granted to her by the greek gods themselves. She's one of the best superheroines ever created.
The best of the best there is but needs the proper attention given to her. With the proper writer and artist this lady outdoes anyone else around and that includes the guys.
All of the above could kick her @$$ but she is most definitely the hottest super hero
More comments about Wonder Woman

Goku would win against any superhero in the world. Goku is the best. KAMEHAMEHA! Will blast you away. Batman has no real powers and his so called intelligence would be easily overshadowed by Bulma. Also Goku would just brutally beat anyone. Goku can destroy planets easily and even universes and Solar Systems. Now vote for Son Goku!
The world of Dragon Ball Z over the world of any other super hero! Its not just goku vs a couple different bad guys, There's Vegeta whos both bad and good, Trunks who comes back from the future but then also grows up in real time to be a great fighter, Gohan with his amazing power hidden within, Vilians with multiple forms, etc etc etc. Goku and company #1 for sure!
Instant transimition, super sayian, kamehameha, spirit bomb, dragon fist, hyper speed, hyper strength, he can squash the planet blow it to dust, funny, kind, caring, great dad, great friend, compassion, and he eats a lot what could be better than that
Goku is the world's strongest.

An indian superhero having great powers like invisibility, shrinking of size, atomic energy etc.
Parmanu! A "24/7" Superhero with multiple superpowers & when he is not beating the crap out of mega-villains he is still fighting against crime as Inspector Vinay, a Delhi Police Cop. He handles villains with supernatural powers as well as India's top Dons, strategists specialist in mind games and evil schemes. Oh...Did I mention he is also a part time model/actor.

- Mohit Sharma (Trendy Baba)
Is an Indian comic super hero with lots of power he can fly, he has a super belt. Lovely character in yellow dress.

Wade is the coolest ever. I have no idea why they killed him off in origins. And he shouldn't be able to die in the first place
He messes with his enemies head as much as his allies. Teamed up with Alex Hayden and your begging for nonsense and mayhem.
Deadpool is easily the coolest comic book hero/anti hero. He's so cool about everything and well... he broke the fourth wall people... the fourth wall...

Too of the best Indian hero who taught everything with fun n action...moreover he had an emotional side too and had a sweet crush on Geeta...the reporter! It had made students crazy with his action of revolving...ten on ten.
The first indian ' Digital super hero '
First time in india people running home to watch a superhero ( before this only God's serial do the same..). Students bunk their school. Madness for shaktiman dress...
Too awesome

Catwomen isn't really a superhero I mean she is a jewel theif


I kinda like her and I don't like the comment you put above me. SHES A CAT AND I REALLY LOVE CATS.

He is blind and can still beat criminals much more impressive than Iron Man


Poor Daredevil! He has lost 3 girlfriends to bullseye! D:

Bankelal is an Indian comic book character, one of a number of titles published by Raj Comics. He is presented as the "Hasya Samrat"(King of comedy) as the main motive is to arouse laughter and fun among readers through his mischief.

No-one can match Bankelal when it comes to humour

23Optimus Prime
Who can forget transformers
The collest guy in red and blue

Surprised he isn't further up the list with "real" superheroes having gained popularity and comics turned film like Kick-Ass.
The best hero, with real conscience, so much so that even in the face of death (He died eventually), he had the courage to stand up against his old friends. To stand up against your enemies is on thing but to stand up against your friends takes another level of conviction.
Stick up for the little guy! Why does everyone hate watchmen so much!? HE WAS EPIC!


spawn kiks but and can beat anyone
Spawn was given his powers by the devil and uses them to fight evil, bad ass!
I need girl frnd 8697574008 (Debashis Chowdhury)

26Ghost Rider
This guy can match up most superheroes, vote for him or feel the Penance Stare!


Has developed from a pun churning, pixie booted sidekick to a full on hero in his own right. Plus, he donned cape and cowl and became a refreshingly different Dark Knight! Come on, show the boy some love!
He is the original robin revamped to kick ass. He is armed with two poles and should be recognized for his raw awesomeness


Learned from the dark knight good acrobat too fast to damage and let's face it. He's taken on some of batmans villains and isn't as strong as the bat.

The definitive under-rated superhero. Aquaman does a lot more than simply talk to fish. He polices and is the king of the entire sea. Also his strength level is on par with Superman's and has an impressive array of allies like his sidekick Aqualad, his wife Mera, the Justice League, and of course his pet walrus Tusky.

He is a action pack superhero!
crazy vampier killer man!! yeah!

When you need a man to get the job done; you call the Punisher. Most superheroes will throw the villains intro prison or some other magical place where they will eventually escape, obviously. So a straight out kill can do the trick any day.
The Best Super Hero of all! No question about it. He is realistic, and I love his motives for his actions. Mostly, supperheros just kick butt to kick butt. But the punisher kicks butt for revenge. =)
punisher by garth ennis is a great read but it will destroy your confidence in humanity.

31Green Arrow
Green Arrow because he is basically Batman, Batman is rich- Green Arrow is rich, etc
He is specially trained and is great with arrows
At least he is inthe top 50s

32Captain Marvel
Look him up has the power of multiple gods


34Jean Grey
Yeah definitely the most powerful superhero in the X-men lineup! She probably can go up on her own, be the entire X-men team actually!
Phoenix, Marvel Girl, the first student of Xavier. She is one of the most powerful heroes in the marvel universe.
Phoenix is almost invinsible, if you consider her enormous powers... She can evaporate you in a nanosecond if she wishes... No chance for anybody to even get close... Since she can produce force fields with her mind, no chance for anybody...

Havaldar bahadur. He's not a superhero but defeated many supervillians. And even angels, devils, Jinns calls him when in trouble and he solves there problem. The most funniest character I have ever read.

40Silver Surfer
Are you kidding me... Captain America and Goku are ahead of the Silver Surfer? The Silver Surfer is hands down the most underrated super hero of all time.
barring jean grey would kick the top tens arse at the same time


A slave who killed conquer of universes.

"such a cool hero. hell of a lot better then Aquaman. i mean, at least Aqualad has power over water, not just the dumb fish. u gotta respect him for being the first sidekick to be cooler than his mentor.
I think we can all agree that Aqualad was always there for us when we needed him most...When we were drowning, or base diving without ropes, or doing other dumb things that had something to do with water. He'll always be just a cut above the rest.


aqualad is just the coolest he can breathe under water!

I dont know what she is but i might do her for science

Super fighting robot!
Mega Man! Mega Man's a badass (or X)
But I don't remember being a comic book hero! I remember Mega Man being an anime show! :D Hey! Speaking of anime! I should show the mega man show to my friend who loves anime/manga!
