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).

This is a list of the most popular comic book superheroes.

The Top TenXW


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

Superman sucks

V211 Comments

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.

Spider-man is awesome

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.

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.

Superman should be above Batman because if in a fight, Superman would win, hands down! But Batman fans, do NOT use the excuse that Batman could win, even with the help of Kryptonite, because if Superman absorbs enough Yellow Sun energy, then he is immune to Kryptonite for a period of time, and he would easily beat him. Also, I'm sick and tired of people choosing Batman over Superman, mostly because he is more popular, but also because they use the excuse that, take away Superman's powers, and he's just a man, well take away Batman's gadgets and money, and he's just a guy who knows fighting styles that could easily be beat by some characters like Iron Fist or Wolverine, so don't vote for the most liked, vote for the people who actually deserve it!

Superman is too OP

V83 Comments

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!

I wish I had claws!

5Iron 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

He actually never defeated hulk in the comics, only spiderman did and only once. This dude is always drunk. This guy created a group called the illuminati who tried to beat hulk but were beaten instead

6Super 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.

My friend, I love Super Commando Dhruv too, but we must accept that he has been heavily influenced and sometimes copied from Batman, Robin (Jason Todd) and Bucky Barnes.

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 great hero ever...

7The Hulk

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! "

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

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 Hulk is not a superhero, he's a mindless monster that destroys everything shouldn't even be on this list

8Captain 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.

Captain America can beat the whole avengers superman batman the justice league and more

9The 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 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!

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.

I know let him save Nora Alan

10Green 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.

Nothing to say really. He is just awesome. But, the fact that his abilities were not magically given to him, that they are actually a piece of extraterrestrial tech and that there are others like him, is awesome.

I think that a super hero is only limited by their imagination and that's the best of the lanterns. Any thought is possible.

A man who learned Martial Arts, and has the most developed brain and body out of all heroes, Marvel and DC

Nagraj has snake gift from gods

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 - damersh

He's the god of thunder has beaten the HULK and the THING with both of their powers magically augmented (thing was powerful enough to nearly kill red hulk) I mean come on hed just pure bada

Okay...he's a god. Need I say more?

13Wonder 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

She sucks so annoying

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...

X men origins ruined him

V22 Comments

He just not solve the problem. He Destroy the problem

His passion against crime is amazing.

Great work by raj comics.

Doga is best ever character created by raj comics

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

At least top ten

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

He beats thugs constantly, not even looking at the target!

The best of all

DeadpooL is the best superhero ever

Nobody cares about Aquaman. Or, should I say KING Aquaman. Who can have a pleasant conversation with a great white shark without getting torn to pieces? Let's face it people, can you breath underwater or control the seas? Most likely not. Also, a whole team came together (The Others) consisting of allies of Aquaman. So, I hope at least someone reads this. Of course this is just my opinion you do not have to agree. But, does Iron Man or the Hulk have a water-blasting trident? Methinks not.

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 so strong that he can lift a continental plate. Need I say more?

King of the seas, need I say more

19Green 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

He became one of my favorite superheroes since the T.V. show arrow

How is Aquaman higher than Oliver Queen?

Best Archer In The World
