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

1Batman

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

The bravest bat and man ever

2Spider-Man

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.

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 has always been my favorite super hero. He's easily one of the most relatable comic book characters out there; he has to deal with issues that normal people face such as maintaining a job, dealing with school, financial struggles, juggling relationships whether they be friendly or romantic, etc.; all in addition to being a super hero. This is what makes him such a great character, he's just a normal guy who one day is burdened and blessed with these great powers that affect his whole life, and he has to try and strike a balance between his normal life and his hero life, but he doesn't always find this balance, which is what makes him so great. Not to mention, his origin story is very emotional and influential.

And my issue with Batman is that he's pretty much always on top of things. Yet he's supposedly a normal human? I just can't buy that, and I'm surprised that so many people still make the "normal guy" argument; the way I see it, Batman has two powers: Popularity ...more

Movie and Strength wise Spiderman has better plots that issues around a normal teenagers life than Batman and other guys.

3Superman

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 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!

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.

The most Iconic, possibly only second to the Bat

4Wolverine

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 love Hugh Jackman/wolverine because he has great powers and a great past

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 is the smartest superhero and is also one of the funniest. I love how he has a huge ego. Love all his weapons.

6Captain 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 was my first favorite superhero and I will miss him.

If you built a Superhero from the ground, it would look like Captain America. Cap defines what a superhero is. He has risked his life countless times for truth and justice. It's his sacrifices and leadership that truly make him the perfect superhero. He doesn't have Hulk's strength, or Iron Man's gadgets, or Thor's powers. But he has pride, and he always fights for what's right, and has often overcome people who are superior to him on paper. Captain America owns the title "First Avenger."

Not only a great hero, but a great man. It's a shame he died in the comics

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! "

He did get tired against the Sentry in World War Hulk, but he is probably the strongest being in Marvel that isn't omnipotent if you put aside Red Hulk, Thanos, and Galactus - RhinoKing5337

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.

Invincible. Unknown weakness. Strongest. Jumps really high. Really fast. Just the best.

8Super 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.

The only Indian superhero who actually can make fanboys out of adults. To be honest, I have to say that yes he is not unique; the fact that his origins are comparable to NIGHTWING (the original Robin) may not go well with SCD fans but eventually the development of the character has been extraordinary.
Unlike other characters:
*he does not have an alter ego
*is very much involved in family life
*has an exceptional crime fighting squad of his own
*has no dark past or grey shades (but has a tragic background)
*has created a strong belief in his readers that he is the ultimate game changer in times of crisis (be it an alien invasion or the end of the world)
*and most importantly he has zero percent superpowers (believe me its too awesome when he single handedly destroys the super powered competition; that's just kickass)
In short DHRUV is a shining star whom everyone can look upon and the recipient of his charms can be other heroes of the same canon and in fact the ...more

The Best Super Hero...

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!

I appreciate the Flash, Barry Allen or Wally West, not because of their speed, their brains, or their quips (though, those are all admittedly great). I like them because of who they are. Right at their core, they're probably the friendliest, nicest, most polite superheroes if we don't count Superman and Captain America. (I'm not talking about the new T.V. show, since it's sorta changed his personality) I'm talking about the comics. Barry is so thoughtful, and genuinely loves people. He hurts when anyone dies, no matter how well he knew them, and that's what makes him a hero. He never stops trying to be better.

He is obviously the best

10Green Lantern

One of my favorite heroes, and not because he can glow and fly and beat up bad dudes with his imagination (not that I don't like that). I like Hal, Kilowag, Guy, John, Kyle and all the others in the Corps for what they stand for. They're cops for the universe, protecting as many as possible, often at their own expense. If you've read any of their comics, you can see that they take almost as much crap as the Bat-Family, what with being in charge of a piece of the emotional spectrum, and yet deferring to the Guardians, beings who don't believe in, nor condone, emotion.

Hal often takes the hit for whatever team he's on, whether it be the JL or the Corps, and Kyle had to drag the whole Corps out of the gutter almost on his own. John and Guy have also had to sacrifice a lot, giving up those they love, and even becoming members of the Red Lantern Corps. All of these sacrifices, plus many more (Coast City was destroyed and Parallax ruined lives, Kilowag wouldn't let Hal leave without ...more

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.

I just love Green Lantern, because whatever you think, comes out of your ring.

11Nagraj

Nagraj a most powerful Indian superhero. He have snakes power like- many types of snake, invisibility, lot of arms power and more...

Nagraj has more power than maximum super heros he should have rank near about 10th

Nagraj is so powerful have his snake in lot of numbers his poison is so hard no one can take it.

He is the best...

12Thor

Odin- The Halls of Valhalla- the Majik Mjilnor- the Son of a God- lightning power- Thor rules - damersh

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

Thor is by far better than most of the people before him, including Batman, Superman, Cap, Iron Man, Green Lantern, the 2 Indian heroes, and the hulk. Should at least be in top 10. He is so awesome and can beat hulk any day.

I love everything about Thor.

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's not in the top ten and The Flash is? - DCfnaf

14Deadpool

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...

Deadpool is funny and cool. He does things most other superheroes couldn't even think about doing. Easily Marvel's best hero along with Cap and Spider-Man

15Doga

He just not solve the problem. He Destroy the problem

His passion against crime is amazing.

Doga is a hero character appearing in Raj Comics, published and distributed across India. Created by Tarun kumar Wahi, Sanjay Gupta & artist Manu in the year 1992, Doga is the first and as yet the only antihero character in Raj Comics. The character first appeared in the issue Curfew.
Deeply affected by his past and the cruelty on his life, circumstances forced orphan Suraj to fight against evil or lose everyone he ever loved. To destroy the evil he suffered since childhood and save his loved ones Suraj concealed his identity behind a dog mask, adopted the name Doga and set out to eliminate all the evil against humanity. Doga is a vigilante who believes in "Uprooting the problem rather than solving it". He does not believe in upholding the laws and rules of the world since he considers the whole system corrupt.
Doga is considered to be among the three most popular comic leading characters created by Raj Comics due to his huge fan following, the other two being Nagraj and Super ...more

Doga is best ever character created by raj comics

16Goku

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!

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

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!

DBZ is one of the best show in history

17Daredevil

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

Deadpool is a good superhero because unlike Superman and Vision, he actually is human and can get hurt, and is therefor more relatable than an actual GOD.

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

DeadpooL is the best superhero ever

18Nightwing

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 - Clive888

The best! He's better than Batman! He's stronger than Bruce emotionally because he has more relations with the superhero community and accepts them easily without being paranoid.

Nightwing id my fave he is so awesome

19Aquaman

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?

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?

Really Number 20
