Top 10 Most Powerful Superheroes of All Time

These are not the best but the ten most powerful super heroes.
The Top Ten
1 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 origin story of Superman relates that he was born Kal-El on the planet Krypton, before being rocketed to Earth as an infant by his scientist father Jor-El, moments before Krypton's destruction. Discovered and adopted by a Kansas farm couple, the child is raised as Clark Kent and imbued with a strong moral compass. Very early on he started to display various superhuman abilities, which, more.

I'm sure Superman is the the most powerful superhero of all time.
With such abilities of moving planets and making black holes with his hand I mean that guy can charge himself from the sun just imagine how powerful the sun is?

Let me break this down- If Superman was to hit you with an Infinite Mass punch, his strongest hit, there would be nothing left but a crater. He can move worlds, literally, and once cupped a black hole in his hands. He has died and came back to life stronger. And he becomes a god. (Superman Prime) The big thing a lot of people don't get is that Superman was born without limits under a yellow sun, and he doesn't exactly have to recharge his solar batteries too often. If he was to let go of his own mental blocks, he could (and eventually does) break down the gates of heaven itself. Immensely powerful even before becoming a god, he becomes so powerful that he could survive the end of the multiverse to help The Presence (DCs' representation of the true God) recreate it. If he can survive the end of reality, and then shape and reform it to his will... What chance does anyone have to compare to his power?

Superman is invincible (obviously besides kryptonite) having an unlimited power source from the sun. Goku uses Ki which is Finite. Sure instant transmission is INSTANT, but it requires concentration. If Goku is in the middle of a battle there is no way he could pull it off. Superman can see the Flash moving in speeds much faster than light and still catch him. Superman has kept a miniature black hole in his hands. He can effortlessly sneeze solar systems away (if were doing pre-crisis Superman). I'm not saying Goku isn't amazing but Goku has limits unlike Superman who has none. "Superman is as strong as he needs to be. "

On death battle they said superman's power has no limit so superman is always and will always be better than super saiyan god super saiyan Goku. So boom. Even if Goku was beating superman the super flare will kill Goku. Also can Goku lift eternity and infinity? Superman lifted Spectre of the ground with some help of wonder woman. And he lifted a book of infinite pages with some help of captain marvel aka shazam. But they have limits to their own strengths so superman is lifting everything else which means everything else. I got this information from death battle and they research this information so superman is better than Goku hands down

2 Thor Thor Odinson is a fictional superhero appearing in the 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 amongst his other superhuman attributes. He has been portrayed by Eric Allan Kramer in the TV film, The Incredible Hulk Returns and Chris Hemsworth in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Thor is a GOD, not some alien from a red planet that was blown up. Every Krypton died from that explosion, with the same powers as superman. Do you think Thor would have died when Krypton was destroyed...NOPE!

Thor has beaten Galactus, destroyer of worlds! Pretty sure Superman would get owned by Galactus.

Thor is enchanted with magic, that is how he derives his immortality, his hammer is magic. Superman is as vulnerable to magic as Kryptonite. Thor would win, no matter how invincible the writers choose to make Superman.

How many battles has Thor fought in over his lifetime. Thor is wise beyond Superman's years.

But seriously, come on, what the hell. Superman and Goku? Are people just voting those they want to win between a battle?

Thor has limitless power. He is immortal and can absorb all types of energy and has MANY abilities. He doesn't have any weaknesses like Goku or Superman. Thor can absorb all the particles a being is made off and kill off immortal beings with his god blast.

I'm not sure if there are any superheroes who are more powerful than him, but it certainly isn't Superman or Goku. I can for sure say with all crucial facts at hand, that Thor would beat Silver Surfer, Superman, Goku, Hulk, etc..

He obviously wouldn't beat omnipotent being such as TOAA(The One Above All), Living Tribunal, etc.. But those guys aren't superheroes. They shouldn't count.

Coming from a comic book fan who knows this .

Thor should be the second most powerful, and Hulk should be first. Thor can collapse an area and shift the planet out of place. He has lifted the Midgard Serpent, which is said to weigh half as much or just as much as the planet Earth itself, so he lifted between 3.3-6.6 sextillion tons. He can resist the gravemetric pressure equal to the weight of a neutron star. He is unaffected by the sun and has even rested inide of our sun. He can match a savage hulk's strength for an entire hour in a power struggle. He can snap out of Adamantium coils effortlessly and can break out of chains made to withstand the strength of 10 giants. He has knocked Abomination out with a single punch and can survive being crushed by the weight of 20 planets. He can create attacks 1000 times hotter than the sun. He can travel more than 50 times the speed of light, so he can move 9,300,000 miles/second. He can resist mental control from Loki and can transcend the physical realm. He is so powerful that he usually ...more

Thor is easily on of the most powerful super humans in the universe. Many believe that superman is more powerful but that is not true. Not everyone knows that magic is super effective to superman. Thor wields lightning that is basically pure magic when powered through his magic hammer. In Thor ragnarok he beat the goddess of death. I don't think superman could do that. Thor should be 1st on this list. Everyone gives superman more credit than deserved.

3 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.

Hulk is most definitely stronger than superman and all of these other characters up here. Hulk is powerful enough to completely destroy planets with his footsteps, can lift and destroy structures built to withstand the power of gods, has lifted 150 billion tons of mountain dropped on top of him in secret Wars, has survived being blasted by Galactus himself. Hulk has defeated all of Earths heroes and villains effortlessly. He has even held a planet 150 times larger than earth and weighs 100 times as much, so he can lift at least 660 sextillion tons and moved its tectonic plates, and the smallest tectonic plate weighs 5 quintillion tons, so he is much, much stronger than superman, whose most famous bench press is 6 sextillion tons. Hulk has even lifted a star that was 15 times larger than our sun. Hulk has punched through time storms and has even punched through dimensions. Hulk has destroyed an asteroid twice the size of Earth with one punch and has dropped from a planet's orbit and ...more

Oh Guys please this mean green killing machine could kill all the superheroes of Marvel and Dc and beat them up in 5 minutes tops. When he goes on a rampage he could even defeat Goku I mean why is Goku number 1 anyway. His just an alien with a tail. Goku why don't you go out from any planet and go into the Sun. Well if you ask us about superman. Before Bruce even turns into the Hulk he would say oh come on Superman everybody knows your weakness is kryptonite and take some kryptonite from well wherever and just put it in Supermans face. As for Thor they fought many times and Hulk usually wins I mean who couldn't defeat Goldilocks wearing a helmet and carrying a hammer for no reason.

Hulk will defeat superman with ease. He can destroy planets with nothing more than his footsteps. He can destroy asteroids twice the size of Earth with a single punch. Hulk can punch through time storms, and has defeated all the heroes and villains( even Sentry, who has the power of "one million exploding suns"). Hulk can lift and destroy structures built to withstand the power of gods. He can hold planets 100 times larger than Earth and that weighs 100 times as much, so he is capable of lifting at least 660 sextillion tons. Hulk has been encased in pure diamond and completely shattered it simply by flexing. He has even survived being blasted by Galactus himself and can drop from a planet's orbit and been completely unhurt. He has even survived being on the sun. Hulk should be first and will always be the best and most powerful character in the history of superheroes.

As a general base stat, superman and Thor may be stronger. But what people need to consider is endurance. As seen in Planet Hulk, no bomb can kill the hulk, and in world war hulk, he survived the full power of the sentry which is 1000 exploding suns! So there's not much any of the heroes above could do to kill the hulk, it would all just anger him, and the angrier he gets, the stronger he gets. So he would just keep getting more powerful until he could kill any of the above with a single touch. The hulk; theoretically, Is unbeatable!

4 Goku Son Goku (Kakarrot) is the main protagonist in Dragon Ball franchise created by Akira Toriyama in 1984. He has many abilities like, super strength, utilization of ki, flight, teleportation, super speed, enhanced reflexes, and Super Saiyan transformation that increase strength, speed, and durability. His real name was suppose to be Kakarrot because that's his Saiyan name, and he is the son of Badrock, and Gina. His brother was Raditz. When they sent Goku (Kakarrot) to Earth his grandfather Gohan took care of him. Later on Goku didn't realize it when he was a kid, but he killed his grandfather Gohan because it was a full moon, and Goku looked at it, so he turned into a giant ape.

His fight with beerus could have turned the entire universe into a void, and he was able to react to them too, despite the fact that they were able to travel across the universe in seconds. This is just one of Goku's many feats that should put him up there with the best. I think that one of Goku's greatest traits is his ability to overcome any challenge he faces, so with many extreme challenges, Goku has become very powerful.

No, this list isn't fair if Goku is on it (Is he even a super hero? ). Oh well, normally, I would say Thor or Superman... But no sorry not if Goku is around.

Superman can move planets? Well, Goku can destroy planets in seconds (if not one second). Superman is light speed you say? Goku can teleport, that' much faster than 999,999,999,999 miles per hour!

Thor may have a incredibly strong hammer, but even with all that magical power, it wouldn't make Goku flinch when getting hit (That is, if he could even touch Goku). If Thor is a God, then Goku is... Whats higher than god? Because Goku fits that position well.

Goku is a nice guy though... He wouldn't attempt to mindlessly kill anyone on here. If anyone attempted to kill Goku, they practically set up a grave for themselves.

Goku is very much so a powerful being. He has survived the Earth and other planets exploding and then surviving in space for a bit. He has destroyed the most powerful beings in his universe, some without much trying. Like the god of DBZ known as Omega Shenron. Who is Shenron's physical form according to the manga. If you don't know, Shenron is the most powerful being, being able to grant andy wish, and we'll have to assume he can grant his own wishes. The Spirit Blast: This is his most powerful attic. He has the ability to become one with it and manipulate the energy himself, so he has a x100 Kamehameha. Goku also wrecks things in physical combat with the Dragon Fist and his abilities. In fact he may be the best martial artist in fiction, maybe only to Batman. Goku also flies at Mach 5 in his physical form, as seen in the movie where SSJ God comes in. Also, SSJ God Goku is powerful enough to easily kill Superman. If you did not know, SSJ God transforms ki into magic, which is one of ...more

Almost all feats/ versions of Superman listed above are non-cannon. Almost all superheroes listed below are non-canon feats/ versions. Goku only has one non-cannon form, which is Super Saiyan 4. It has recently been replaced by Super Saiyan God and Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan transformations, with a probable Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan 2 & 3 in the near future.

Do yourself a favor, research what the original version of superman and any other superhero you so desire to see what their abilities are, and you will see that the original versions are disgustingly weak. Goku's abilities and feats have never been rewritten dozens of times, and the Dragonball Universe is not all over the place. As an example, I will use Superman. He can be as weak as not being able to fly, to as strong being able to pull planets.

If you were arguing with another man or woman, and they were bringing up "facts" that were inconsistent and were all over the place, you would not argue with them ...more

5 Silver Surfer The Silver Surfer is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. 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. He was born on Planet Zenn-La, Deneb System, Milky Way Galaxy

The only one that can take on Galactus (most powerful being of all time in any comic universe), which is primarily because he was given powers from Galactus to do his bidding. Good thing the Silver Surfer realized what he was doing, turned to the hero side, and became the most powerful hero. He can manipulate time, matter, energy, has super-genius level intellect, is 100% indestructible, can travel faster than light, and has several other powers I can't come up with off the top of my head. Goku couldn't hold a torch to his powers. Thor and Spider-Man are my favorites, but I can't deny The Silver Surfer's power. I'd have liked to see him and Thanos go head to head.

He can travel faster than light, he has taken on all the marvel heroes and barely lost, he can also travel through matter as well as use his board to absorb any damage that is inflicted upon him, even infinite amounts, but if you took the board away you may think he would be really weak, but he can just make another one.

To continue he also has the ability to manipulate time and travel through it as well as alter it. His cosmic blast of pure cosmic energy doesn't actually have a limited amount strength, he was granted immortality when he received his comic powers from Galactus, so, in actual effect his abilities challenge those of the One-Above-All, making him invincible.

Let me break this down on why this would be number one

Superman: Silver Surfer absolutely wipes the floor with Superman. Why? Well, you see, at full power Silver Surfer can manipulate and control all forms of energy. This is especially true for the electromagnetic spectrum, including solar radiation, which is what Superman gets his power from. The Surfer could just use his power to drain Superman of all his solar energy, leaving the Man of Steel powerless. It wouldn't even be difficult to do. At full power, Surfer could just snap his fingers and POOF! Powerless Superman. So you tell me who would win? The Silver Surfer with the immeasurable Power Cosmic, or a man with no powers. I know who I would choose! Not only that but he defends Galactus... Galactus... you know the guy who Eats planets.

Goku: Hard decision but I'd still go with Silver Surfer.

Hulk: come on the only thing Hulk has going for him is his rage... Iron Man has beaten Hulk... IRON MAN.

Thor: ...more

The Silver Surfer could destroy Superman easily by sending him through an inter-dimensional portal, where Superman would be exiled and screwed. Furthermore, the Silver Surfer's abilities know no bounds. In addition, the Silver Surfer could always just remotely battle Superman with his board. Anything Superman sends at him, the Surfer converts to pure energy that he uses to fight longer and harder with. Also Superman is vulnerable to kryptonite and magic, so Chris Angel could kick his ass. You can't turn the Silver Surfer gay with a pink rock.

6 Dr. Manhattan Doctor Manhattan is a fictional character who appears in American comic books published by DC Comics. He debuted in the graphic novel miniseries Watchmen, published in 1986 and 1987. Doctor Manhattan was created by writer Alan Moore with artist Dave Gibbons.

He has complete control over matter. Can see the past, present, and the future. Matter not being able to be created nor destroyed is an interesting concept to him though not a limitation.

His only weakness is he has surpassed everything and everyone in our solar system; from what we can perceive to what we are not even aware of. He left Earth to create another form of life for Pete's sake.

No one on this list comes even close. With a mere thought and a slight gesture everyone else on this list could disappear, be turned inside out, or converted into snow flakes.

Frankly, I don't even think it's fair to have Dr. M on this list at all.

Dr. Manhattan would be number one or two undoubtedly if he were more well known. He's basically like TOAA but just slowly realizing his infinite power to create and destroy. The only thing that stops him is basically his disconnection from everything. I also have to say that while a lot of people really like Hulk and I love the big green guy myself. All you have to do to defeat him is to teleport him into an absolutely empty region of space. No gravity. Nothing to push / pull against in order to exert his strength on / in / through. He's just be a tiny green angry asteroid thrashing about wildly getting more and more angry. Eventually he'd probably get so angry he would hulk smash himself and create black hole out of himself. Giving him infinite gravity to use to leverage his infinite strength against. Black Hole Hulk would be pretty bad ass.

Dr. Manhattan is equal to a monotheistic deity. He has zero limits and is completely invulnerable to any impetus thrown his way. With a mere thought he could wipe out anything in existence and all memories of it. He also defies THE LAW of conservation of energy. When obliterated at a subatomic level Manhattan simply reformed himself. In terms of raw ability he is supreme. His only "weakness" is his lack of concern for anything, caused by his infinite power.

Doctor Manhattan his pure energy, and as such, cannot be destroyed. If he is somehow incapacitated (via intrinsic field removal), he can easily reconstitute himself. Furthermore, he has complete control over matter, so Goku, Superman, Thor, and Hulk all get turned into paste. Silver Surfer shares many of Jon's abilities (including reforming himself) so in all honesty, it's really just a battle between these two. Everyone else is non-factor.

7 Captain Marvel Captain Marvel, also known as Shazam, is a fictional superhero appearing in American comics originally published by Fawcett Comics, and currently published by DC Comics.

He is shazam and has the power of 6 gods, nothing else to say, he can surpass superman cause he has the wisdom of Solomon, strength Hercules, stamina of Atlas, power Zeus, courage of Achilles and power Zeus. They are all gods so he is definitely powerful than the heroes above (ironman batman etc) and he has no weakness whatsoever in his shazam form if he uses all of the things he has got from gods.

This man should be above superman. On par with superman in everything. But, had the magic of the gods. Superman is vulnerable to magic and kryptonite. Shazam would honestly win. But, the writers won't allow it. Because, superman is THE poster boy for superheroes.

Captain marvel has the combined powers of five gods added to the wisdom of Solomon. He is number one. Cannot be hurt or killed. Stronger than superman. Faster than the flash. Smarter than reed Richards. He has the most power.

Been a Captain Marvel fan all my life despite the fact I have had my share of exposure to Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Stardust, Fantastic Four, and everyone else in between. My #1 superhero forever.

8 Green Lantern Green Lantern is the name of a number of superheroes appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics.

Invisibility, impervious shield, can generate any object or form of radiation. (Including kryptonite) Can achieve time travel, travel through space, and jump almost instantaneously anywhere in the universe. Invincibility to intense temperatures, disease, and bacteria. Can distort parts of the body, I.E. make the flashs' head so big he's top heavy and can't move fast. Only weakness is the wearer of the ring itself. These powers are only as intense as the will of the wearer

Green lantern could just think of millions of kryptonite and kill super man instantly and take a bazooka and shoot him and super man will DIE! (this doesn't mean I hate superman) BUT the only weakness about him is that the ring powers run of more faster if he use it too much.

The green lantern is one of the strongest characters in the universe. Look at hal Jordans comic vine and it shows you all of his powers and abilities. The guy has the most powerful weapon in the universe. He makes hard solid contructs, is nearly invunerable, has energy projection, energy manipulation, energy absorbtion, and I am not liting the rest. You green lantern haters need to face the fact that this guy can beat the likes of superman and the silver surfer

The power ring has unlimited power, hampered only by the will of the wearer. In simple terms he top trumps the others because the only thing that can stop him is his own will. Caveat, as long as he doesn't need the lantern and the oath.

9 Jean Grey Jean Elaine Grey-Summers is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character has been known under the aliases Marvel Girl, Phoenix, and Dark Phoenix.

I believe she is without a doubt no. 1 on this list. The quintessential Supreme being, she can control anything and everyone without lifting a finger. Her powers are beyond comparison. The Phoenix is abnormally scary thinking of her unlimited abilities.

I don't even need to go into detail on Jean. She can use her mind for LITERALLY anything. She can fly, create force fields and burn your butt.
Oh and if by some miracle she is killed, Jean will just resurrect.

Dark Phoenix should be above everyone on this list, minus maybe Dr. Manhattan. Love Supes and Thor but Jean would wink them out of the universe.

This woman should be in top 3. She can destroy all the planets and galaxies, she can control your mind and reality. Not to mention super powerful telekinesis

10 Sentry

Sentry is the strongest superhero by far. His powers derive from The One Above All himself, most powerful entity in marvel and nothing comes close to it in dc comics. He can unleash the power of "one million suns" though he always holds back his full power potential unless he is forced to. His one weakness is his mind. Robert Reynolds, his human identity, is schizophrenic and is afraid of the world. Even when he is transformed into Sentry, he is not (totally) mentally stable thus allowing him to be manipulated.

Sentry is superior to superman in almost every way. He has the physical strength of one million exploding suns which makes him stronger than hulk and he can travel to the sun in seconds, making him way faster than light. He was also able to beat molecule man at his own game which is manipulating molecules (Which alone is a very powerful power.)

Sentry should be in 2nd after Thor. He is definitely more powerful than even Superman prime 1 million as he has power of millions of EXPLODING SUNS.

Sentry should be higher than Goku & Superman by far.

He is more powerful than Molecule Man and on par or more powerful than House Of M Scarlet Witch.

The Contenders
11 Flash The Flash is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. His first appearance was in October 1956 and was created by Robert Kanigher. His main ability is super speed through the Speed Force and can run at speeds exceeding light.

Barry Allen as the Flash should be ranked #1 in any list involving the most powerful beings. Not only does he have super-speed, but once he reaches terminal velocity, he has shown other incredible powers.

During an attempt to measure his top speed once, he strained every muscle in his body to run at about 10 Roemers, which is 10X the speed of light. It's not just his running that is fast, but everything about him. His hand-eye coordination is second to none, and his reaction time is so quick it allows him to process information fast enough that to him, running at many times the speed of light feels slow. Not only this, but he also immune to any form of telepathy, due to his thoughts racing at such speed that they cannot be controlled. In fact, his mind is so fast, when he taps into the speed force, he thinks so fast that he can see and weigh every possible outcome in a situation in order to decide on the best course of action.

In addition to running and thinking fast, ...more

Based on modern physics flash is the strongest because of e=mc2 if he reaches speed of light he can deliver infinite mass punch. Superman ( maybe thor can deliver that too) But flash can travel faster than light so he basically delivers it before you do, and according to to relativity theory the faster you move the slower the time the more mass you gain. So in theory flash can travel through time faster than any hero can and will deliver his infinitely infinite ( basically infinite) punch every second. No comment but this is enough to beat up thor, superman, hulk, odin etc. Also relativity theory says that black hole has infinite mass and time doesn't exist there so basically his infinite mass punch wipes you out from reality destroying time and space...

The Flash is actually more powerful than you think. He should in be in 2nd or 3rd place...Maybe even 1st. He can time travel...So if there's a fight between him and any other superhero...Let's say Hulk. He can go back in time and stop Bruce Banner from gaining his powers, or kill him. He can defeat any superhero like that. Not to forget his ability to phase through objects. He can phase through Hulk and even rip out his heart. Go through the entire list and you will see that he can beat everyone. Ok, One-Above-All is a little tough, but The Flash can dimension-hop too. So he can go to a universe where OAA is weaker and destroy him. And Earths also mildly have impacts on each other, so the OAA might get affected by that. And for all Flash fans here...The Flash also has the "SUPERSONIC PUNCH, BABY! "

Flash can stomp anyone. First of all, Flash can be the most powerful superhero ever. He has more abilities than you actually know of. Not only can he run extremely fast, but his speed is infinite. Not nigh infinite, just infinite. And that is before he achieves nirvana with the Speed Force. His power, when he becomes one with a force that is what drives everything forward. The speed force is what pushes time forward. So if Flash achieves nirvana with the speed force, he will be essentially be able to control time itself. With that, the speed force is regarded as energy, hence the lightning coming out of speedsters as they run. We don't know what type of energy yet. But achieving nirvana with the speed force might give flash other abilites instead of infinite speed. He may be able to manipulate matter and bend reality. Oh, and with that, did I mention flash can create black holes? Yeah, with his infinite mass punch, if he wanted to, he could create a black hole if he wanted because of ...more

12 Doctor Strange Doctor Stephen Vincent Strange, best known under his alias Doctor Strange, is a fictional superhero created by artist Steve Ditko and writer Stan Lee appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Doctor Strange serves as the Sorcerer Supreme, the primary protector of Earth against magical and mystical threats. He has been portrayed by Benedict Cumberbatch in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Mentored by The Ancient One, Former Sorcerer Supreme, He discovered the Kamar-Taj- Where he trained to be a sorcerer- after his hands are horrifically injured in a car accident.

Said to be by far the most powerful humanoid in the universe. Can destroy mountains or entire planets with a simple energy blast, he's even destroyed an entire dimension, or can hold a planet together. Once reaching a level where releases of energy would unconsciously destroy galaxies. Has control over time, he once froze an entire planet in time, but can reverse time or move someone forward like when he turned a young Ancient One (conjured by Eternity) into an old man. Defeated the likes of Death herself, the reality destroying Shuma-Gorath in his own dimension, etc. Can call upon some of most powerful beings in existence for a power boost, or can outright absorb/steal the power from other including cosmic entities. His magic has virtually no limits. Then there's black magic, which he rarely used (prior to becoming Sorceror Supreme) and gave up using it entirely after beating Shuma-Gorath (the battles with him and his lieutenants being his only real showing of what he can do, cutting ...more

Doctor Strange should at least be in the top 5. He can teleport across dimensions, has telekinesis, can create force fields and shoot optic blasts powerful enough to destroy entire worlds! He can also pause time so he could just stop his enemies from attacking him by pausing them. I bet he could beat superman at least 2 times over. Superman is the current number 1.

Really! He should be in top 10. He has fought God's and can crush a human with a twitch of his finger. He is not called the sorcerer supreme for nothing!

Unlike Superman, he is an actually good character and his power is limited, but at it's full potential, he could defeat Superman.

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

The Ghost Rider represents God's wrath given form, and can only be permanently destroyed by him should a Rider go rogue. Johnny Blaze is the most famous character to hold the mantle of the Spirit of Vengeance. He sold his soul to the hell-lord Mephisto in order to cure his father of cancer, gets betrayed as his dad dies anyway and becomes bonded to the fallen angel, Zarathos. Zarathos was the Angel of Justice that was dragged to hell and driven insane during his imprisonment as he was forced to learn of all the sins of humanity, causing him to fall and became a demon, the Spirit of Vengeance. As the Spirit of Vengeance, Zarathos is obsessed with punishing the wicked and will stop at nothing to damn those who are guilty. The Ghost Rider possesses a lot of powers, too many for me to list here. All you need to know, is Ghost Rider was created to keep the forces of hell at bay and punish the many sinners of humanity that have spilled innocent blood. To be a pain in the Devil's ass, you'd ...more

He can't die, is stronger than superman, and has no weaknesses except only being able to fight against evil... Should be top 5.

Ghost Rider beat Galactus by himself just by doing the stare. He can't die and has no weaknesses except from only able to fight against evil.

He can't die and he had a battle with the hulk and he didn't fail against him, he actually got somewhere.

14 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 to his tendency to break the fourth wall.

He's been cursed to never be able to die by Thanos, on top of his super fast healing factor that tops all other weapon x people. But what really gives him the edge above all others on this list is his crazy ideas. Where Batman and Dr Manhattan have brains and genius intelligence, Deadpool has genius insanity. With his crazy ideas and reality manipulation he can come up with the most inventive ways to do anything. As long as he has an ounce of motivation to do something he can make it happen, with his magic satchel ( a term for where characters can pull stuff out of nowhere, mostly seen in cartoons like SpongeBob and stuff) he can literally do the impossible simply because people deem it impossible.

He is in a relationship with death. He has a faster healing factor than wolverine. His soul cannot be burned by ghost rider as his half soul is with Satan a, daughter of Satan even his soul regenerates has carbonation swords which can nullify healing factor. Married tto the Queen of monsters. Defeated cap America, wolverine, spiderman, taskmaster in hand to hand combat and killed the entire marvel universe. Rival against thanos. Banned from hell and cursed with life by thanos. This sums it all he is immortal

Teleporting, a healing factor that surpasses wolverine, mastery of any weapons he uses, his insanity makes him unpredictable, and he treats the fourth wall like a step child!

He had to stay in a prison for 800 years and still didn't die. In one of the Marvel deadpool episodes, he breaks the fourth wall and kills every one of the marvel superheros mentioned yeah he is basically the strongest superhero.

15 Martian Manhunter The Martian Manhunter is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. Created by writer Joseph Samachson and designed by artist Joe Certa, the character first appeared in the story "The Manhunter from Mars" in Detective Comics #225.

How in the hell is Goku Numb. 1 and Superman second?
Martian Manhunter can actually mind-kill anyone including Superman, plus he can just shapeshift and destroy Goku. Superman would be easily killed by MM. Silver Surfer & Dr Manhattan would be a tough battle between them and MM but guess what? MM would win cause he overpowered his weakness to fire and he has no weaknesses now. Plus he can just read their minds and findout their weaknesses and then finish them. MM is the best.

Manhunter has so many powers, he probably could inflict the weakness of any superhero since he has that power. He could destroy Hulk and Superman with telekinesis and psionic blasts. I'm pretty sure his strength rivals Thor's too and if he took away his hammer, he would defeat him. Surfer would loose to him but it would be a close fight.

29? You should better look his full potencial, Martians were the most feared race, and J'onn actually doesn't have fear of fire, he's inmune, he scanned all Earth minds without much effort (forget Kingdom Come and his poor treatment to MM), he was able to cure Joker with a simple order and many other feats, plus his powers are enormous (he can replicate a building with his shapeshifting abilities)

Teleportation, invincibility, telekinesis, flight, strength, speed, shape-shifting, able to phase through objects, invisibility, heat vision, ability to absorb any force against him. He's basically superman with more diversity.

16 Wonder Woman Wonder Woman is a fictional superhero created by William Moulton Marston and Harry G. Peter, appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. The character is a founding member of the Justice League, a goddess, and Ambassador-at-Large of the Amazon people. In her homeland, the island nation of Themyscira, her official title is Princess Diana of Themyscira, Daughter of Hippolyta. When blending into the society outside of her homeland, she adopts her civilian identity Diana Prince. The character is also referred to by such epithets as the "Amazing Amazon", the "Spirit of Truth", "Themyscira's Champion", the "God-Killer", and the "Goddess of Love and War". In the DC Cinematic Universe, more.

When the world is in trouble Wonder Woman is one of the first on the scene, a warrior who is just and not a psycho. I would prefer Wonder Woman with the notion that things will be set right.

Wonder Woman is the best. Once I was watching a cartoon, Wonder Woman could beat FOUR strong women. So I think wonder woman should be the third strongest hero.

Is a Goddess, and has beaten Superman, Hercules, Thor in the crossover comic, and if she can beat, that means she can also take out The Hulk.

Wonder Woman's sword can cut Superman! So it can kill him. So Wonder Woman with her magical weapons, her strength and her amazonian skills, she could defeat Superman

17 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 in Tales of Suspense #39. In The Marvel Cinematic Universe, he is portrayed by Robert Downey Jr.

This depends on your definition of power. If you think power means super strength and laser eyes and stuff like that, then Iron Mam may seem weak.
But that's not what power means. Power is the ability to affect and change the world around you, which is Iron Man's forte. Whenever he encounters an obstacle he can't overcome, he thinks of a way around it. The hulk is indestructible and has immeasurable strength, but Iron Man has his hulkbuster. Superman may be on the top of the list, but with a little research, do you really think it would be that hard for Iron Man to make a Superbuster? Tony Stark invented TIME TRAVEL. No physicist has ever even come close to doing that, and Tony isn't even a physicist. If you watch the movie carefully, you'll notice that it doesn't even take him that long. In the comics, he has a suit that can escape black holes and negate spiderman's spidy sense, which is infallible against anything else. He could think his way out of literally any situation. There ...more

Iron Man's armor possessed standard powers, which he still kept, and always upgrades them. The more modern armors enable him to lift over 82 tons, thought his Hulk buster armors can lift over 200 tons. He is able to fly at supersonic speeds of over Mach 8, and can hover in place. He also possesses remarkable durability, and can withstand the elements of a gamma bomb. His armors also possess powerful armor plating, which greatly increase durability.

Tony can generate weaponry on either his gauntlets, shoulders, back, helmet, and legs. He can make force fields, which he could use to protect allies and himself. Iron Man can control all forms of energy, from kinetic to solar. Tony possesses superhuman speed by jet-propelled roller skates.

While he is most definitely not the strongest hero on the list, he has always been able to talk his way out of situations. Any situation he was unable to talk himself out of, he would build his way out instead. He has already beaten the Hulk with his Hulkbuster Suit. He can most likely create suits that would counter each heroes abilities so he could win. He could probably buy kryptonite from somewhere to deal with Superman. I don't remember what it is called, but there is some type of metal that cancels out the flash's speed. If he can buy that, flash is done. The only problem I see would be the DBZ verse as anyone there would unfortunately destroy him without a second thought. They did beat cell after all, who is (most likely) stronger then Iron Man. Galactus and the one above all would also not even have to think about destroying him. Pretty much anyone that doesn't originate on earth (excluding superman) could kill iron man in an instant.

He's encountered many bad guys which are Titanium Man, Whiplash and the Mandarin and somehow has defeated them all. The Mandarin did something that no other villain has done to Tony Stark yet. He blew up his house/base, leaving Tony and Pepper to build Stark towers.

18 Saitama Saitama is the main protagonist of the webcomic and anime series One Punch Man, who could easily destroy a continent with one punch. He is bored with his extreme power. He is registered with the Heroes Association as a C-Class Superhero and is tasked to defend Z-City against Mysterious Beings.

He's strong but characters like superman and flash would smash him. I will explain. One punch is what it would take to defeat somebody but not superman, well not if he has the power of the sun with him anyway. He would definitely not be able to land a punch on superman or flash because of their amazing speed stats. Superman would kick saitamas ass. Green lantern would probably just trap him in a shield box and throw him into space and make sure he stays up there. Saitama may be powerful but he's no superman

This is a really interesting character to try and rank. Saitama definitely deserves a place on this list, but we have never really seen his full potential. Even so, I can still list a handful of people who can beat him (not including tier 0 characters). Even so this doesn't deviate from the fact that he's killed extremely powerful characters with a single punch.

Him being hilariously the most powerful is the entire point of his character, so it's insane that he's this far down the list. Him being physically the best despite his looks is his entire point and joke- the only ones who could begin to match up to him would be high level reality-warpers.

Don't judge him by the anime because he didn't even used his 1% of his power, even batman was able to beat the superman if people think he is slow they don't know that he jumped from moon to earth in seconds, he can create multiple after images just by moving sideways.

19 Spider-man Spider-Man is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics existing in its shared universe. The character was created by writer-editor Stan Lee and writer-artist Steve Ditko, and first appeared in the anthology comic book Amazing Fantasy #15 (August 1962) in the Silver Age of Comic Books. In films, Spider-Man has been portrayed by actors Tobey Maguire (2002–2007), Andrew Garfield (2012–2014) and Tom Holland (2016–present), who has portrayed the character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since 2016.

I think Spider-Man is the most powerful superhero. Sure he might not have supermans powers, but spiderman is strong in his own way. For example, he's very smart! If he's in a tough situation he somehow always figures a way out. Spiderman also has enhanced strength, he could pick up cars! Climb building! Kick a lizard in the face... But anyways, spiderman also has spidey senses! He can basically know when danger is coming his way! He usually dodges everything! Sure superman can fly... But sometimes strength comes from the person not their superpowers, and I think spiderman is the strongest of them all.

I know he's the strongest. He has his own tricks that do the things. In infinity war, it was only Spiderman who's plan worked out in the space. He always gives us lessons like, With power comes great responsibility, And all his uncle Ben's preaching. I saw the third part starring Tobey Maguire, where he fought with three villains. And bear heavy punches. Come on yar, He taught us too many things, even to the Iron man.
And now with more Powerful suits, he is becoming more powerful. Like that instant killing mode.


He has spidey sense he can only be touched by venom! Everyone else's powers are completely useless! He can lift up to 100 tons for heavens sake! He is most powerful! Get that in your heads!

Spiderman isn't my favorite but he's my third favorite because he saves people lives and is just awesome...period!

20 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.

Wolverine has an innate ability to heal from almost anything and he also has super martial arts skills which allow him to take down his enemies with ease. He has Adamantium claws than can cut through anything, even Hulks skin and he also has limitless strength thanks to his Adamantuim bones.

He is not as strong as goku or superman but he is very powerful. He has healing powers which makes him immortal. Other superheroes may die but he will be forever. Even thor has life span of 5000 years. He deserves to be in top 10.

If I wasn't for his adamantium skeleton he would be nothing. Any way he has that slow really slow healing factor of his. I mean his is more powerful than doctor strange? I mean the dude has talked to eternity before. Wake up and smell the power people!

He is a GREAT hero! He is amazing! And I am sure he died the most tragic death. He is a human not a GOD like superman. He has emotions not like Dr.Manhattan.
He doesn"t know magic like Dr.Strange. He cannot destroy entire planets but he can care and love for somebody. He is the most tragic and GREATEST, not a superhero but a HUMAN.

21 Gogeta Gogeta is an anime fictional character from the anime series, Dragon Ball Z, created by Akira Toriyama.

Let's be honest here, Gogeta is immensely strong, no one can beat him AT ALL. Not even Saitama and Superman together should be able to beat this monster, it's a combination of Vegeta and Goku, and as we all know, they both can go Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan in the series right now, heck, even Goku can unleash his Kaio-Ken x10 power while going SSJSS. I really think that would make then invincible too be honest. Last time they did the fusion they didn't even have Super Saiyan 3. Imagine how their power would be right now. They could blow up anything, really, anything. It's no doubt this Saiyan beast should be at the number one spot, after all. Superman is strong, but to be honest. I really don't think Superman is going to be able to land a single punch on Gogeta, after all. I don't think Superman could even take Gogeta Super Saiyan 3, to all you Super-Fans out there, do your research and find out who Gogeta really is, after all. I think all us Dragon Ball fans know who Superman is.

Actually Gogeta is the most powerful superhero creation, even though he is the product of the fusion of two entities (Goku and Vegeta). Adding Dragon Ball Z characters overshadow the other superheros by a considerable margin. Sorry Superman, but you are not the most powerful superhero. This list should actually look like this if you include the MAJOR/MAIN DBZ characters: 1. Gogeta/Vegito 3. Goku 4. Vegeta 5. Superman 6. Hulk and the rest is debatable with Naruto characters closely behind.

Gogeta has the gigantic powers of Vegeta and Goku combined: as a SuperSayan his power level is (according to V jump) greater then Baby Vegeta whose power level has been described as immeasurable buy Old Kai. Gogeta is far more powerful then Super Perfect Cell who could destroy the entire solar system using his Solar Kamehameha. Gogeta SSJ is even more powerful then Super Buu who can destroy the entire universe when really angry.

This is the most powerful superhero. Ever. Maybe perhaps Super Saiyin God Super Saiyin Goku could beat Gogeta because of no power limit, but this almost killed off Sin Shenron, which was the most powerful enemy in the entire series, pretty much. A Big Bang Kamehameha almost killed Sin Shenron.

Not to mention he's as hilarious as Vegeta and Goku combined... xDDD That's something you DC and Marvel people don't get.

22 Shazam Captain Marvel, also known as Shazam, is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. Artist C. C. Beck and writer Bill Parker created the character in 1939. Captain Marvel first appeared in Whiz Comics #2, published by Fawcett Comics.

Shazam, he is literally the best. He is indestructable, has no known weaknesses, flies and can summon lightning. Oh and did I mention he is super smart, fast and is better than superman in every single way.

Shazam the guy who has the power of 6 gods and beat superman is number 53!? I am done with this planet aleins take me please.

Shazam is captain marvel

He is good where he is

23 Doomsday Doomsday is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, usually depicted as an adversary of Superman.

Bruh the site clearly said top ten most powerful superhero's not supervillains so I don't know why doomsday and beyonder (who was considered a villain in secret wars) is on this list but alright.

Are you kidding me?! Where the hell is doomsday? Killer of the man of steel and whatever kills him he is immortal too! End of story. Goku or anyone on this list kills him he automatically becomes stronger being impervious to any form of energy or damage dealt to him during battle and causing death (which is near impossible) he has unlimited strength. He doesn't eat, sleep or breath which means he has potentionally unlimited stamina also being able to fight superman for a full day and not breaking a sweat. he's been known to take on abilities on heros and villains just by simple contact of skin, his bones can cut through supermans skin with ease. Killer of beings like darkseid & Imperiex! A blast of energy that wiped out one third of a planet reduced doomsday to ash and later regenerated STILL and came back to finish the job. He is beyond life or death being millions of years old, killed by Gods, Super heroes, villains, beings that could alter reality with a blink of an eye and STILL ...more

Doomsday is by far the greatest. He killed superman destroyed Galaxies and still pose a threat to all hero's. He is so strong that it took the entire justice League to match up with the power of Doomsday and still couldn't kill him but only trap it. He is an immune God.

Mom pass me the knife! Need to stab my self and die. How on earth is he not 1 or 2 this monster killed superman!

24 Invisible Woman Invisible Woman is a female superhero who is a part of Marvel's Fantastic Four. Her powers include invisibility, cosmic rays, invisible force field, and more.

She can destroy you from the inside but doesn't do it because she is a good person. Her force fields can hold back any character even a pissed of hulk.

Whike holding back she turn of the hulk lungs and thus knocking him out. It was stated that if She wanted to she cold have ended his life.

Masturbated to this like 4 times now.

I have a boner

25 Captain America Captain Steven Grant Rogers, most known as Steve Rogers or Captain America, is a fictional superhero appearing in the American comic books published by Marvel Comics. He was a World War II veteran and is known as the world's first superhero. The character was created by Jack Kirby and Joe Simon and was portrayed by Chris Evans in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Cap may not be the most powerful superhero, but he is the best role model out of all the superheroes. Even though he was a small guy he wanted to serve his country! He could get beat up all day but that didn't stop him! "I can do this all day" He wasn't born with physical powers but he was a very brave, humble, loyal, kind man. And because of that, he got powers. He is WORTHY. How many of the people on this list are worthy enough to hold the hammer (besides Thor)? The fact that he said "Language" to iron man for swearing just proves he's a great person. He is also VERY powerful with his words. When he gives a speech to his team it's always amazing. He's a true leader and the perfect definition of a hero. This makes him a powerful superhero.

Captain America is one of the most humble superheroes out there! He is the real definition of a hero he has patriotism and class. He is the most realistic because I mean have you see Chris Evans he's pretty much already Captain America. It's not strength that makes Captain America it's spirit.

He is the definition of a true hero! Unlike the majority of people on this list, the Cap wasn't born with his amazing gift... Instead it was given to him because of his beliefs and his values! Not only does he excel in personal traits but he has gone head to head with the Hulk and Thor!

Captain America is not the strongest superhero, he can't freeze time use laser vision or even fly, but by far he is the most respectable hero out there and you can't say anything bad about him. He has one quality though that only a few other heros posses, leadership.
