The Top Ten

1 Batman Batman Batman is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. The character was created by artist Bob Kane and writer Bill Finger, and first appeared in Detective Comics #27.

Batman, just like Superman, was one of the first superheroes as well and helped start a new chapter in American culture. But Batman was also a pioneer in something else; he was the first dark superhero. Nobody had ever seen a character like that before - not just in comics, but in adventure stories in general. Batman's dark personality captivated the audience. That is why he is one of the most popular superheroes ever. - amazumder

Batman is the best because he has no superpowers but still makes a difference this gives children something to look up to.

2 Superman Superman Superman is a comic character. And probably the first powerful superhero in the fictional world.The character was created by writer Jerry Siegel and artist Joe Shuster, high school students living in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1933. It was published by DC comics.The first animated superhero movie was superman.The ...read more.

Superman is THE #1 hero because he was the first superhero to ever exist and set the standard for everyone after him. The word superhero even originated from him. And that's only part of it. He also has an interesting character. Despite his limitless power, he is completely selfless and loyal to mankind. And what's most interesting about Superman is that his superhero identity is his actual self. Superheroes like Batman and Daredevil dress up like superheroes but they're vigilantes. However, for Superman, Clark Kent is the disguise - not Superman himself. This character has become an icon in pop culture as well. And he has an epic movie which came out this summer - Man of Steel!. - amazumder

Superman is the best, just think if there was no superman the lex and his pals would stomp everyone. Plus Superman was created by two Jewish guys, awesome.

3 Iron Man Iron Man Iron Man is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, as well as its associated media. The character was created by writer and editor Stan Lee, developed by scripter Larry Lieber, and designed by artists Don Heck and Jack Kirby. He made his first appearance ...read more.

Iron Man is also one of those "just awesome" superheroes. He has awesome hi-tech gear in his suit and he's really fun to watch when in action. At one point I was skeptical about placing him in the top 5 because I doubted just how virtuous he is. But then I saw "Iron Man 3" and thought "wow, he's not nearly as mean as I thought." - amazumder

Robert Downey Jr. is so handsome!

One of the funniest members of the avengers, laugh out loud him and the hulk r just crackup!

4 Batman Beyond

Batman Beyond is just really awesome. He is not well-known at all, but he is just awesome. If you don't know about him, he is a teenager named Terry McGuiness who goes into training with Bruce Wayne when Wayne is about 60. And then he learns to kick butt against all of Bruce's former arch enemies. "Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker" is a great movie to watch if you want to learn more about him. - amazumder

5 Captain America Captain America Captain America is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.

He has the best heart of them all. Need I say more? - amazumder

Captain America is the real American hero.

6 Nightwing Nightwing

Awesome costume, awesome personality, awesome looks, awesome weapons, awesome fighting style, awesome back story, awesome supporting characters, awesome everything. - amazumder

7 Spiderman Spiderman Spider-Man is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics existing in its shared universe.

He is what personifies the struggle of young people.

8 The Flash The Flash

It's just amazing how helpful super speed can be. When I first learned about Flash I thought that he was just a random guy in a red and yellow costume running all over the place - why is he so popular? But then I started reading up on him and I found that super speed was a lot broader than what I originally suspected, and it actually helps him out a lot. He has fast reflexes and can think fast as well. So he technically also has super intelligence. He's funny, fun to watch, fun to use in video games (i.E., "LEGO Batman 2") and to top it off I think he has the #2 comic book franchise after Batman. And I still left off millions of things. - amazumder

9 Wolverine Wolverine Wolverine is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, commonly associated with the X-Men. His powers and abilities include a healing factor and his signature adamantium claws and adamantium skeleton.
10 Green Lantern Green Lantern Green Lantern is the name of a number of superheroes appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics.

It's fascinating how Green Lantern can create anything with his ring. His powers are will, will, will, will, will, and will. That just shows that superpowers aren't everything in the comic book world. He's also got a cool story and supporting cast. - amazumder

The Contenders

11 Catwoman Catwoman Catwoman is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly in association with the superhero Batman.

Well, what can I say? She's part of the Batman universe. Anne Hathaway's performance in "The Dark Knight Rises" totally blew me out of the water and really showed the character's good side. Everyone thinks Catwoman is a villain which is wrong. But she deserves this spot in the top ten. - amazumder

12 Daredevil Daredevil Daredevil is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Daredevil was created by writer-editor Stan Lee and artist Bill Everett, with an unspecified amount of input from Jack Kirby.

Cool character with lots of cool background stories. Plus he's blind! - amazumder
