The Top Ten

1 Deadpool Deadpool Deadpool is a fictional antihero created by Marvel who appears in their comics. Deadpool's first appearance was in New Mutants #98 by Rob Liefeld and Fabian Nicieza in February of 1991. His powers include self-healing and super strength. 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 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

He is the best and seriously no one can beat him

2 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

He knows only four things in his life-His Family,Guns,Punishing The Evil and KILL! Frank Castle can defeat anybody.He doesn't need any super powers or magic he is a one man army.He just uses his mind and Heavy loaded bombs or guns that's enough.His family was brutally murederd and from that day he knows only one and that's Punishing The Evil.He is a lone wolf who likes to work alone whether the enemies are 10 or 100 he is ready for destruction that's why he is called The Punisher!

3 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.

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

Logan is best because he defeated deadpool

Wolverine is the best!

4 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.

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.

Greatest ant-hero ever - PumpkinKing109

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

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!

6 Batman Batman Batman aka Bruce Wayne 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.

He shouldn't count just because he is dark doesn't keen he's an anti hero he doesn't even kill he just scares people

For doing things against laws

He isn't an anti hero - Sarcasisim

What he's not an anti hero you could say he's an ileagle vigilante but he is classified as a superhero its like calling spiderman iron man all anti heroes

Flaming chain. Penance stare. Need I say more?

Most badass anti-hero with style!

8 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.

9 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 a long history raining from when he was premiered as a hired gun to take out the teen titans after his son had failed. 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

10 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.

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

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

He has a sad childhood

Greatest in the Evverrr!

The Contenders

11 Spawn Spawn

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 Judge Dredd
13 V
14 Black Cat

Sexiest Smartest and Coolest Anti Hero of All Time!

15 Night Wing
16 The Crow

With his beautyful story of horror and vengeance, he is frightening as cool.

17 Spider Jerusalem
18 The Shadow

Criminally underrated character. He's very cool - Alexandr

19 Hit-Girl Hit-Girl Hit-Girl is a fictional character appearing in the Kick-Ass series, published by Marvel Comics under the company's imprint Icon Comics.
20 The Question

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

21 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.

People overlook her too much

25 Rick Grimes Rick Grimes Richard "Rick" Grimes is a fictional character and the protagonist in the comic book series The Walking Dead and in the television series of the same name, portrayed by Andrew Lincoln.

Rick Grimes is such an amazing character. He is the second best comic character of all time after Batman.

One of the best character development or transformation, Definitely deserved to at least top ten

26 Moon Knight Moon Knight Moon Knight is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Created by Doug Moench and Don Perlin, the character first appeared in Werewolf by Night #32.

42 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.

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.

Not a comic
