He is regarded as one of the funniest characters in comics due ...read more.

Catwoman? Really? The amount of jokes Deadpool could make about a villain who acts like a cat is infinite.

Ill indulge you people for not voting deadpool due to the certainty that most of you don't know him or know little of him.

Highly trained mercenary that sustains some crazy experiments to get cured from cancer. Thou these experiments work, granting him Wolverines regeneration (which is improved to insane levels in further experiments), something goes wrong and the cancer expands while he continues to regenerate constantly. This leads to some brain tissue issues that make him mad (and funny, FUNNY AS HELL) and totally emaciated. But, it also makes him dangerous as hell as he becomes chaotically random and practically invulnerable to mind control (his brain is constantly regenerating new cells that die due to his cancer), plus stronger and faster than any human (due to his regenerating, just like wolverine).
He is also the top of the noch of mercenaries, which ...more

He is hilarious

He is insane with all his machine guns, dual swords and incredible healing factor; it is better than Wolverine's

Deadpool is the boss vote for deadpool

2 Rorschach Rorschach Rorschach is a fictional anti-hero who appears in American comic books published by DC Comics. He first debuted in the graphic novel Watchmen, published from 1986-1987. Rorschach was created by writer Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons.

Greatest ant-hero ever - PumpkinKing109

Rorschach is the ultimate anti hero. He is the step up of batman, proving he will stop at nothing to save the world and stop crime in New York. By far the best of this list.

What?!?!?! How is he not number 1. He is dark, and violent but he believes in what's right and he believes in the greater good. It's such a shame he gets killed in the comic but its sadder in the movie.

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

One of the most unique and intriguing anti-heroes, not to mention hot! - Alexandr

Catwoman is much more iconic than Deadpool but modern silly generation loves idiotic characters like Deadpool

Catwoman is the BEST!

4 The Punisher The Punisher The Punisher is a fictional antihero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character was created by writer Gerry Conway and artist John Romita, Sr., with publisher Stan Lee green-lighting the name.

He is more of an anti hero then any other of them he is unstoppable he just kills in angor and never struggles when he is determined to do something and you automatically feel bad for him because his family death he's a bad@$$ nonstop killing machine

If he has an unstoppable goal that he will do anything to finish then he is an anti hero more that cat woman she just messes with people on the streets and steels stuff she's not an anti hero just a pettiful villain punisher is bad@$$

He just doesn't punishes you he PUNISHES YOU

You can't beat this bad@$$

5 Venom Venom Venom, or the Venom Symbiote, is an alias used by several fictional characters appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, commonly in association with Spider-Man.

All I can say is when Venom cleans house...he cleans the whole house!

This guy should be at either number 1 or 2 along with deadpool.

6 Red Hood Red Hood The Red Hood is an alias used by multiple fictional characters and a criminal organization appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics.

He is a true anti hero he actually kills people batman and his ass moral code to not kill Jason or red hood just like to do it for greater good he wants to kill joker he is a true anti hero if the dc universe

Greatest in the Evverrr!

19? Jason Todd a.k.a. Red Hood is the best antihero, a Batman version without morals...

He has a sad childhood

Most badass anti-hero with style!

8 Deathstroke Deathstroke Deathstroke is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. The character was created by Marv Wolfman and George Perez. He is a mercenary and assassin who first appeared in The New Teen Titans #2.

He has had a hard and tough life from the military to his family to losing his wife and two sons. He is able to have a plan that will work and will help him win. If you though batman was master of prep then you haven't met deathstroke

He is the ultimate anti-hero. DEADPOOL IS A COMPLETE RIP OFF OF DEATHSTROKE!

Deadpool was copied from this guy Slade Wison...
He has better weapons better strength better fighting skills and most of all he can use 90% of his brain

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.

Logan is best because he defeated deadpool

Our favorite ass-kicker in the marvel comics! Plus, who the heck is Spider Jerusalem on this list? Is he a Jewish Spider-Man or what?

The best he is at what he does! - t-man

Wolverine is the best!

The Contenders

11 Spawn Spawn Spawn is a fictional character, an antihero and hellish Superhero that appears in a monthly comic book of the same name published by American company Image Comics.

Spawn is the warrior who dethroned saton and god

The most bad-ass one on this list! Todd Mcfarlane's Spawn stays true to the word: anti-hero. A story for a mature audiance, He's got tons of powers (and guns) and ends up killing Satan AND God!

The dude became a GOD! (temporarily though). Still --> End of discussion.

12 Harley Quinn Harley Quinn Harley Quinn is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly as a sidekick of the Joker.
13 The Question

Definitely better than rorschach, since he is based off of The Question.

14 Morbius, the Living Vampire (Marvel) Morbius, the Living Vampire (Marvel) Morbius the Living Vampire, a.k.a. Dr. Michael Morbius, Ph.D., M.D., is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.

He should have his own movie. He's awesome!

Luckily for you, the people behind the Venom movie have confirmed that Morbius is their next project. - Aceto

17 Night Wing
18 Scarlet Witch Scarlet Witch Wanda Maximoff, also known as the Scarlet Witch, is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. She is portrayed by Elizabeth Olsen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Not really an anti-hero, but still a great character.

Another interesting but criminally overlooked character - Alexandr

People overlook her too much

19 Spider Jerusalem

24 Hulk Hulk Robert Bruce Banner, also known as The Hulk or Bruce Banner, is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby and was portrayed by Edward Norton and Mark Ruffalo in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Its basically two heroes in one. Two heroes who are constantly fighting each other for control and at times working together to save the world. It's a tragic monster story of the Hulk which makes him so relatable and loved even though he is so ridiculously powerful.

25 Judge Dredd
26 Garfield Garfield Garfield is a comic strip cat, created by Jim Davis in 1978. Garfield is well-known in many countries and has appeared in over 2.500 newspapers.
