Top Ten Comic Book Assassins

Well, When I say assassins, you give me a thousand. I've put them down to ten. Enjoy.

The Top Ten

1 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.

True Deadpool may technically be a Deathstroke rip-off, But I don't see Deathstroke cracking jokes and breaking the forth wall. So I'm going to say Deadpool is an original character in that sense. (And honestly, there costumes aren't as similar as people make them out to be)

Deadpool is overrated, which is why he is first. Plus he's a Deathstroke rip-off. Nothing can beat the original, so I'm going with Deathstroke.

The top assassin and mercenary ever-made. Great character with great stories

Defiantly my favourite, Deadshot is my second favourite. - JasonTodd

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.

He's more of a mercenary, but I guess he can be truly silent if he wanted.

I had to have him on my list. The only reason he's not 1 is that he's more of a superhero. - Deathstroke

WA he should be number one!

Joker isn't an assassin lol. He doesn't take a sniper and shoot off random targets for money. He just likes blowing stuff up and making everyone smile while doing it.
