Best Marvel Comics Characters


The Top Ten

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

There always is Batman and Spiderman who come down to the greatest superheroes of all time. I definitely do love Batman, but not only can he not be the greatest superhero while he has no superpowers, but Spiderman is ten thousand times Batman will ever be. He is the most relateable, heartfelt, and amazing character anyone could ever think of creating. Everyone knows him. His comics do amazingly well, and even though most of the Spider-Man movies don't do the greatest job of displaying and embracing who Peter Parker/Spidey is, they still are (most of them) great movies and some of the best comic book movies I've ever seen. Spider-Man is on the number one spot of this list, and for many reasons we can keep going on and on, he is here to stay.

Spiderman is the single greatest superhero ever. He is the center of Marvel's popularity. Spidey also has the most awesome Marvel villain of all, Venom. Spiderman is the coolest hero I have ever known and all of his movies kick ass. Tobey Maguire was so great as Spiderman, and Andrew Garfield was great too. SPIDERMAN RULES!

Spider-man is my hero. Every teenager with dreams of doing heroism relates to Spidey's determinations.

I like deadpool and all but spiderman is the best by far I've been a fan of him for my whole ever since I new how how walk and talk. If I could be a superhero from marvel it would definitely be

2 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 more.

The funniest ninja on the planet that is getting his own video game!

Are you kidding me deadpool should be number 1 his health regeneration is faster than wolverines and he survived the battle against hulk when wolverine threw him at hulk and wolverine was the only other character that survived.

He should at least be in the top 5! He is Deadpool. He is not the average superhero. He is the one that breaks the mold of average superheroes. He isn't as serious as the other heroes.

He's hilarious. He needs to be #1. Now.

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.

A remarkable and interesting character with the most badass powers that enables him to showcase fierce and exciting fighting techniques on the screen. The story of Wolverine and basically everything about him makes him the most intense, grittiest and fascinating character in the marvel universe. The Wolverine 2013 is also one of the best movies. Amazing!

Wolverine is an amzing character! Claws make him one of the most violent heroes ever to exist. A rule to me is BLOOD makes a character (Wolverine) awesome!
Wolverine is like the BEST OF THE BEST X-Men Charcter. Wolverine is amazing because of his claws and the power to grab and kill right away.

Wolverines a beast! IF you have read the civil war wolverine series you know what I am talking about. That might just be the best one I have read so far - challey

I loved Hugh Jackman because of Wolverine!

4 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 more.

Iron man is the coolest guy ever he has 42 different powerful
Armors, he can even control it in at the same time. He is the one who
Save the entire city and the avengers in the movie the avengers.

This should totally be #1. Tony Stark is like the best Marvel character ever. He may be a bit arrogant and the is the whole playboy thing, but he defeats bad guys all thanks to his genius.

When I was young, long before the movie, I wanted to be Tony Stark. - RdrTech

Iron Man is amazing and also because of Roberts great be trail of Iron Man there is a MCU. if you are not a Marvel nerd the movie Iron Man started the MCU.

5 Hulk Hulk The Hulk is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, and first appeared in The Incredible Hulk #1.

Watch any movie or read any comic, it takes multiple heroes/characters to bring down the HULK, or to calm him down. He destroys anything or anyone in his path, the only time I believe where he was in trouble was against COSMIC Spiderman, but please... that's pretty weak. HULK is clearly the #1

Dude, hulk has infinite strength and is known for these deeds. Holding up a mountain, killing the red king, taking down almost all the marvel characters, and (My personal favorite) cracking onslaught's indestructible armor. All the avengers couldn't do it but then they just let out hulk.

HULK is unique in any fashion. A potential rival to Vector the Crocodile, he can smash, thump his chest, lift anything more than two times his very heavy weight and HULK Smash anyone or anything. He is the greatest Marvel hero of all time.

The best marvel character and the strongest by far have been reading marvel since 1968 and no all the villians and heroes by heart and the hulk beats them all.

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

Though Siderman's great, Cap. is the hero that makes others look like students. He practically is the face of Marvel, underdog to hero. Everyone's favorite story, he's above all the modest and true hero. Not wanting to do it for someone, not revenge, plain and simple. Humbleness is the ruler of great qualities, he takes the gold, silver, and bronze for that. So great that it goes around.

Cap has a pure heart, and his movies are amazing. Every time you see him, you learn a valuable life lesson. We aren't looking for the more powerful characters in the Marvel Universe. We are looking for the true hero who displays what being a superhero and a leader is just as well as Superman, and does the best job of displaying what being a true soldier is like.
Come on, guys. He deserves to be at least on the #3 spot.

The movies...
The comics...
The game...
What more can this superhero do
He is the first avenger!
My brother hates him whats up with that!

Here is the great thing about cap.Even if he doesn't lead you to victory he will at least make sure you will lose greatfully.He is THE LEADER.You can't find a better leader than him.In my opinion he is a must have on your side

7 Ghost Rider Ghost Rider Ghost Rider is the name of several fictional supernatural antiheroes appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.

Ghost rider is bad ass in fighting he will beat any character you name.

Ghost Rider can beat anyone in fighting with his fire.

One of the coolest and strongest characters in marvel! Thor, hulk and dr strange are nothing compared to the power of the rider

He is so awesome!

8 Thor Thor Thor is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character, based on the Norse mythological deity of the same name, is the Asgardian god of thunder and possesses the enchanted hammer Mjolnir, which grants him the ability of flight and weather manipulation more.

Virtually a god, a mystical hammer, can control the weather with super strength to boot. You just should not logically be able to beat Thor.

Undeniably one of the greatest Marvel Characters ever. The Avengers would be barely anything without at least some version of Thor whether Jane Foster or Odinson. The concept of not being able to lift his hammer, Mjolnir, unless you're worthy, is one of the best twists for a superhero and allows character development for others besides Thor him/herself. This hero deserves a spot on the top 5. Come on, my people. You're seriously gonna let DEADPOOL be taking a higher position than THOR?!?!?

We are talking about strength and Spiderman does not deserve any of that. Thor is definitely the one unless One Above All just destroys him from all his comics. Thor wields one of the strongest weapons in the universe, a hammer called Mjlonir.

is awsomee

9 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.

Venom is so cool. He is one of the most iconic villains ever.

Venom is off the chain. I especially like Flash Thompson as Venom.

I think venom is the best because he turns big and small

he's cool

10 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.

This is unbelievable. How does Daredevil not even appear on the top tens? Let's go guys! This guy is legendary! There is no way that Venom should get the 8th spot and Daredevil is on the Honorable Mentions.

Part ninja, part acrobat. Superhuman senses and balance. Matt Murdock is the ultimate underdog in the MU.

Of course daredevil should be up top he's blind and an amazing crime fighting hero I think he's one of the best marvel superheroes

Daredevil is an absolute boss!

? Apocalypse Apocalypse Apocalypse, also known as En Sabah Nur, is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.

The Contenders

11 Green Goblin Green Goblin The Green Goblin is the alias of several fictional supervillains appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, mostly those starring Spider-Man.

Best villain in history, surpassing Darth Vader easily in my opinion. If there is a Spiderman movie in the DVD shops, cinemas; or a videogame dedicated to Spiderman, it is all out there thanks to good old Norman Osborn. I have read almost 500 old Amazing Spider-Man comics. Read about at least 600 characters in marvel universe but none was as impressive as Green Goblin and his genius.

Total beast just awesomely creepy

IKR Green Goblin is so awesome! X-P - ScourgetheHedgehog

12 Storm Storm Storm (Ororo Munroe) is a mutant superhero appearing in Marvel Comics. Her first appearance was in Giant-Size X-Men #1 in 1975 and was created by Len Wein and Dave Cockrum. Her main super power is weather manipulation.

Ororo Munroe is the most recognizeable female mutant in marvel universe. I like her mohawk look and the different costumes that she wear. I like her style. And most of all, I like her attitude. Her powers are really awesome. She is even considered an omega level mutant. She's my favorite X-man character and her team X-men gold is my favorite too. Storm has a great heart. - RLAAMJR

Though she is claustrophobic, she tries to be strong and fight against evil at all costs. She tries to see through a problem and find solutions analytically unlike Wolverine. Her ability to control the mother nature is one of the most powerful abilities one can have as a mutant.

Probably the most powerful female X-Man along with Jean Grey, Strom is classified as an Omega level mutant. Seriously, what mutant can create tornadoes, storms, and flash floods with a wave of their hand? Her will is impressive and her skills as a thief are one of the best in the Marvel universe. She's way more powerful than her teammates, if you compare her to Nightcrawler, or even Colossus or Iceman.

Storm is the epitome of strong, independent women. She is absolutely unmatched in beauty, grace and power.
Although, they could have chosen a better person to play her in the X-Men Movies... Halle Berry was sorry as hel.. - Celestius

13 Nightcrawler

The charming BAMFing devil. He's as good natured and well mannered as he is deadly. The guy actually teleported from a mission briefing and gave Kitty a NightCrawler soft toy to play with as she was too young to go with the x men to fight. How can you not put someone like that in top 10

Born Norrin Radd, the Silver Surfer's abilities are given to him through the Power Cosmic. His first appearance was in Fantastic Four #48 in 1966 and was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby.

The most powerful marvel superhero! Able to manipulate elements of earth through his cosmic power. He can't die, doesn't need food nor water. Above all, he's a surfer

15 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.

18 Thanos Thanos Thanos is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character first appeared in Iron Man #55.

As person before me say he in avenger infinity war plus he's the second greatest villain of all time number 1 is mistress death (his boss and crush) - MarvelcampomWWE

He's going to be in the new avengers infinity war which is coming out in 2018

The most bad-ass villian ever


19 Jean Grey Jean Grey Jean Grey, or Jean Grey-Summers, is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.

She can't control her anger and destroys planets. Its just amazing

20 Loki Loki Loki is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. He is the adoptive brother and archenemy of Thor.

Loki is awesome in every way possible in the films, I mean he's played by a great actor, has amazing lines, and can do anything really.

Are you kidding me? Loki is even better than thor! HE SI THE BEST, MORTALS! Google, loki is better than thor, see what you get.

Okay so Loki is cool, but I don't get why people like Thor so much when Loki is so much better. - Anonymousxcxc

He is by fact the best Marvel character! ^_^ - ScourgetheHedgehog
