Top Ten Comic Book Superheroes"A superhero is a fictional character who is noted for feats of courage and nobility and who usually has a colorful name and costume which serve to conceal their true identity, and abilities beyond those of normal human beings.
The word superhero originated with Superman, who debuted in 1938, and the stories of superheroes - ranging from episodic adventures to decades-long sagas - have become an entire genre of fiction that has dominated American comic books and crossed over into several other media." (source Wikipedia: Superhero).
This is a list of the most popular comic book superheroes.
The Top Ten
BATMAN is the best because without superpowers, he is of the level of other superheroes. He has solid personality and he is a very good detective. Without him, Justice league can't sustain. He has extra-ordinary skills and always remains two-step ahead of everyone :)!
Batman murks superman any day. He fights the same dudes as superman and does just as good as him without superpowers.
The great ranking!
I like it very much... Batman... Really an ultimate star
But I think superman should've gained more votes
He is perfect superheroV 334 Comments
He is what I how think a real person would be if he or she became a superhero, because he's not perfect, he gets scared and feels gulit, and lots of it. Plus he hates being a superhero sometimes, but he feels responsible because of his superpowers, so he can never quit.
Spider-Man stands out when compared to Batman or Superman because of the fact that he's very much human and shows us that through his acts and feelings. He may be a web-slinger hero when fighting bad guys, but under the costume he's just a regular kid. He feels upset and vulnerable at times as shown by Infinity War's ending, and values his friends tremendously, clutching onto Stark and not wanting to leave. That is what makes a good superhero. Not the costume, or looks, or ego, but the personality. - RosalinaX
Spiderman is the best hands down he can crawl on walls, pickup cars, swing on webs and he gets a ton of hot chicks.
Spider-Man has always been my favorite super hero. He's easily one of the most relatable comic book characters out there; he has to deal with issues that normal people face such as maintaining a job, dealing with school, financial struggles, juggling relationships whether they be friendly or romantic, etc.; all in addition to being a super hero. This is what makes him such a great character, he's just a normal guy who one day is burdened and blessed with these great powers that affect his whole life, and he has to try and strike a balance between his normal life and his hero life, but he doesn't always find this balance, which is what makes him so great. Not to mention, his origin story is very emotional and influential.
And my issue with Batman is that he's pretty much always on top of things. Yet he's supposedly a normal human? I just can't buy that, and I'm surprised that so many people still make the "normal guy" argument; the way I see it, Batman has two powers: Popularity ...more
Superman (Clark Kent/Kal-El) Is My Favorite Superhero Of All Time. - movielover1994
Superman is the number one hero of all time, he stands for truth & justice.
He has the ability to rescue in one part of the world and fly to the other side of the world in a blink of an eye to rescue others there.
Superman never crosses the line unless under the spell off some kind of kryptonite, all other superheros would cross the line to destroy evil.
Batman comes in second for his morals but without his toys and special ancient martial arts training he would be nothing and is no match for superman in any way.
Superman is better than any other superheroes ever created. His leadership, his will and his never ending battle for truth, justice and the American Way is what makes him so awesome. - Heman
He's basically the first superhero ever created; if it weren't for Superman there wouldn't be no Batman, Wonder Woman, Captain America, Flash, Spider-Man, Green Lantern, etc. He is also the most kind and moral superhero out there. Superman is who I inspire to be like, but not in having super-powers; but in making the right decisions. Superman is an inspiration to me, and is who humanity should strive to be like. Superman is the perfect superhero.V 110 Comments
Maybe he isn't the best ever, but he definitely deserves to be above SUPERMAN. Superman is a boring superhero because he has no dark side, he is too OP, and he isn't interesting to read about because he has no depth! He's just one-dimensional. So maybe Wolverine doesn't deserve to be number one, but there's no way we can let him be below Superman.
Who brought back the X-men from cancellation!?
exactly - GnerdRage
Its not about who can win... The story of wolverine and the x men is by far the best... Wolverine should be number one I mean he's a total badass
Superman is really a boring hero dudes if isay spiderman batman wolverine and ghost rider together facing mysterio joker apocalepse and the hell on earthV 60 Comments
Unlike most superhero's I've seen, Tony Stark (Or Iron Man, respectively) is not only a rich man with a cool suit fighting enemies, but also a funny person who loves his family and would do whatever it takes for them. - RosalinaX
Tony Stark is the Marvel equivalent of DC's Bruce Wayne. His awesome suits gives variety and we all know, "variety is the spice of death. "
The best comic character and we all know if it was just Iron man Vs cap iron Man would of won he was about to defeat him but bucky grabbed his leg and pulls him over and his start is shiny and nice and he likes good music (rock) he is the best
He is just one great kickass character! Love his style attitude and everything about him his amazing... He is never dark oriented.. And an awesome show off!V 56 Comments
Besides being my favorite superhero, Captain America is always looking out for others and cares about his teammates a lot, as shown by his reaction to Black Widow's death in Endgame. He puts his life at risk to save Vision in Infinity War. He tries to be reasonable and actually has a personality unlike some people (cough cough~Superman~cough cough). He is extremely resourceful, able to use his military training and his shield to defeat the enemies even when he noticeably doesn't possess a primary weapon or supernatural powers. He's willing to put his life on the end for his friends and family and always tries to do the right thing. Once Captain's got his mind set on something, his stubbornness will get the best of him but that just proves how human he is among his allies. Scarlet Witch might have magic powers and Iron Man his latest technology, but Captain America possesses great courage and the burning passion to save the day when he has so little to work with. - RosalinaX
Captain America is one of the only comic book heroes that could actually be called a hero in real life. It's his personality, the grace in his eye, the pride in his heart and his courage that makes Captain great. As opposed to supermans strength or batmans gadgets. Captain America to me is what a hero should be.
Captain should be at least at no 4 position.
I believe there should comic books of captain America called captain America the all American and captain America the mighty warrior for freedom and justice and they would be special comic books I even like captain America a lot more than batman in fact the story of captain America is a lot more exciting and he knows how to stop evilV 48 Comments
Hulk is the strongest one there is. He is this because as a fight goes on he never gets tired and his strength increases as he gets madder. So in essence, Hulks power is not limited. I have never seen any being quite like him and have been a fan of him for 18 years now. He is and always will be "The Strongest One There Is! "
He did get tired against the Sentry in World War Hulk, but he is probably the strongest being in Marvel that isn't omnipotent if you put aside Red Hulk, Thanos, and Galactus - RhinoKing5337
Hulk can take on any revenge and any battle if ya like green he would be the kind of guy to look up to. What will the incredible hulk do now
There's not much to say about the Hulk, except that his brutality and strength simply make an enjoyable read. When Hulk takes a hit, you'll see the damage.
Storyline's are important and Hulks storyline is off the charts. Hulk has character and can show it when he needs too. He is strong and very brave. Hulk would never back down a fight. He's so strong its actually scary.V 34 Comments
The Flash deserves the title of The Best Superhero ever. He is the fastest, and coolest. He isn't superstrong but doesn't need to be because he can overpower strength with his speed. One flash died to save earth. He is just plain the best. Ever.
The Flash's speed would put Superman scrunched up in a corner, and he would be able to do anything to stop all the others because of his incredibly fast thinking! He's by far the #1!
I appreciate the Flash, Barry Allen or Wally West, not because of their speed, their brains, or their quips (though, those are all admittedly great). I like them because of who they are. Right at their core, they're probably the friendliest, nicest, most polite superheroes if we don't count Superman and Captain America. (I'm not talking about the new T.V. show, since it's sorta changed his personality) I'm talking about the comics. Barry is so thoughtful, and genuinely loves people. He hurts when anyone dies, no matter how well he knew them, and that's what makes him a hero. He never stops trying to be better.
The speed force gives him so many more powers than just speed too. He can phase through objects, travel through time and to other dimensions, and can turn invisible. And if its Wally West we're talking about, he's got the funniest quips in all of comics (sorry spidey and dadpool). Add to that one of the best rogue's galleries and he by far the best.V 50 Comments
He's pretty powerful.
One of my favorite heroes, and not because he can glow and fly and beat up bad dudes with his imagination (not that I don't like that). I like Hal, Kilowag, Guy, John, Kyle and all the others in the Corps for what they stand for. They're cops for the universe, protecting as many as possible, often at their own expense. If you've read any of their comics, you can see that they take almost as much crap as the Bat-Family, what with being in charge of a piece of the emotional spectrum, and yet deferring to the Guardians, beings who don't believe in, nor condone, emotion.
Hal often takes the hit for whatever team he's on, whether it be the JL or the Corps, and Kyle had to drag the whole Corps out of the gutter almost on his own. John and Guy have also had to sacrifice a lot, giving up those they love, and even becoming members of the Red Lantern Corps. All of these sacrifices, plus many more (Coast City was destroyed and Parallax ruined lives, Kilowag wouldn't let Hal leave without ...more
Green Lantern is the best super her ever! I got to write an essay on any super hero I wanted and I chose Green Lantern. He should totally be number 1!
Simply a very awesome idea for a super hero. He should definitely have a higher vote than Aqualad, Goku, and Cat Woman, if not wonder woman as well.V 14 Comments
Thor should be number one! Who gives a crap about Superman!
This is Thor Odinson. A literal god!
Odin- The Halls of Valhalla- the Majik Mjilnor- the Son of a God- lightning power- Thor rules - damersh
There is a zepplin song pretty much dedicated to him. Now that's just badass. I still think captain America is better because he's an American hero and he's all AmericanV 24 Comments
He should be at the top of this list, y'all
Best ever, the funniest hero and he can’t die he is cursed from death and he breaks the fourth wall. Nobody beats Deadpool only people who even come close are Batman, hulk and green arrow.
Wade is the coolest ever. I have no idea why they killed him off in origins. And he shouldn't be able to die in the first place
He messes with his enemies head as much as his allies. Teamed up with Alex Hayden and your begging for nonsense and mayhem.V 43 Comments
She's a super-powered amazon with powers and weapons granted to her by the greek gods themselves. She's one of the best superheroines ever created.
The best of the best there is but needs the proper attention given to her. With the proper writer and artist this lady outdoes anyone else around and that includes the guys.
Amazon Warrior Princess
All of the above could kick her @$$ but she is most definitely the hottest super heroV 23 Comments
Goku would win against any superhero in the world. Goku is the best. KAMEHAMEHA! Will blast you away. Batman has no real powers and his so called intelligence would be easily overshadowed by Bulma. Also Goku would just brutally beat anyone. Goku can destroy planets easily and even universes and Solar Systems. Now vote for Son Goku!
Instant transimition, super sayian, kamehameha, spirit bomb, dragon fist, hyper speed, hyper strength, he can squash the planet blow it to dust, funny, kind, caring, great dad, great friend, compassion, and he eats a lot what could be better than that
The world of Dragon Ball Z over the world of any other super hero! Its not just Goku vs a couple different bad guys, There's Vegeta whos both bad and good, Trunks who comes back from the future but then also grows up in real time to be a great fighter, Gohan with his amazing power hidden within, Vilians with multiple forms, etc etc etc. Goku and company #1 for sure!
Goku is very compassionate and also very powerful too. He's always trying his best to get stronger too. Not to mention very noble, giving Frieza a chance to live despite what he had done to countless planets and even his own race. So yeah, I admire Goku immenselyV 57 Comments
Nightwing should be higher. He's such an interesting character who we had the pleasure to watch go from being an orphaned nine year old to awesome character we know only as Nightwing. He is Batmans oldest and greatest ally who even took the mantle when Bruce was missing. His amazing acrobatics and jokish way of fighting are a joy to watch. Not to mention his on again/off again relationship with Barbara Gordon (Batgirl) is another fantastic highlight of the character. Nightwing is an awesome character who I think should be higher on this list.
Has developed from a pun churning, pixie booted sidekick to a full on hero in his own right. Plus, he donned cape and cowl and became a refreshingly different Dark Knight! Come on, show the boy some love!
He is the original robin revamped to kick ass. He is armed with two poles and should be recognized for his raw awesomeness - Clive888
The best! He's better than Batman! He's stronger than Bruce emotionally because he has more relations with the superhero community and accepts them easily without being paranoid.V 6 Comments
He became one of my favorite superheroes since the T.V. show arrow
Green Arrow because he is basically Batman, Batman is rich- Green Arrow is rich, etc
He is specially trained and is great with arrows
How is Aquaman higher than Oliver Queen?
Oliver Queen should in the top five he is better than any other powerless superhero and is better than some powered superheroes.V 23 Comments
Anti-hero - Carly19781
A truly unique and dynamic character. His morals are unlike any other comic book hero. Seeing the contrast in his behavior with Daniel compared to everyone else is so interesting. His one rule is another thing that makes him stand out from all other heroes, it isn't based off of warped self-righteousness like Batman's. He even chose to die rather than stray from his one rule.
The best hero, with real conscience, so much so that even in the face of death (He died eventually), he had the courage to stand up against his old friends. To stand up against your enemies is on thing but to stand up against your friends takes another level of conviction.
He should be in the top 5! - PumpkinKing109V 12 Comments
He is blind and can still beat criminals much more impressive than Iron Man - Kafka
Deadpool is a good superhero because unlike Superman and Vision, he actually is human and can get hurt, and is therefor more relatable than an actual GOD.
He beats thugs constantly, not even looking at the target!V 12 Comments
Spawn is a favorite, good job to image comics. It is like the only superhero to go to each time. - iliescu
Spawn is great here since is on own self defeating evil, and Canadian which is rare. - iliescu
spawn kiks but and can beat anyone
Spawn was given his powers by the devil and uses them to fight evil, bad ass!V 6 Comments
When you need a man to get the job done; you call the Punisher. Most superheroes will throw the villains intro prison or some other magical place where they will eventually escape, obviously. So a straight out kill can do the trick any day.
punisher by garth ennis is a great read but it will destroy your confidence in humanity.
The Best Super Hero of all! No question about it. He is realistic, and I love his motives for his actions. Mostly, supperheros just kick butt to kick butt. But the punisher kicks butt for revenge. =)
Punisher is just awesome. When you first see him you think of a villain, and that (his dark side) is what makes him awesomeV 3 Comments
Jason Momoa was great, everything else was ehh.
I hate how the comics made him this straight white guy, it makes no sense. In the films he was better (only because Jason made him really realistic and who he was ment to be) but still kinda trash. Shame, really.
Nobody cares about Aquaman. Or, should I say KING Aquaman. Who can have a pleasant conversation with a great white shark without getting torn to pieces? Let's face it people, can you breath underwater or control the seas? Most likely not. Also, a whole team came together (The Others) consisting of allies of Aquaman. So, I hope at least someone reads this. Of course this is just my opinion you do not have to agree. But, does Iron Man or the Hulk have a water-blasting trident? Methinks not.
The definitive under-rated superhero. Aquaman does a lot more than simply talk to fish. He polices and is the king of the entire sea. Also his strength level is on par with Superman's and has an impressive array of allies like his sidekick Aqualad, his wife Mera, the Justice League, and of course his pet walrus Tusky.
He is so strong that he can lift a continental plate. Need I say more?V 4 Comments
Vegeta badass Goku is strongest and vegeta has beaten him before
The prince of all saiyans
How the heck raven is #71 I will never know
Her dads a bad ass demon, who by the way SHE BEAT BY HERSELF!
She has power over DARK energy shes funny as without trying
And lets not forget how she kicked dr lights (along with many others) arse
She should be number 1
She's been my favorite since I got into teen titans
Raven is awesome
Raven is beautiful, even more beautiful than ugly old Starfire. - MeaganSaysHIV 4 Comments
This guy can match up most superheroes, vote for him or feel the Penance Stare! - LordA117
The Most Badass Looking Superhero EVER, Flaming skull, leather jacket, motorcycle with the wheels on fire plus god-like powers? can't top any of that
This guy is a badass skeleton on fire. The only bad thing is the movies. (Thanks Cage. )
Badass! Awesome! Underrated! How was he not in Lego Marvel's Avengers? - DCfnafV 6 Comments

I loved the part in the movie where he made the escape plan and said to get that guy's artificial leg, and then said he was just kidding. So twistedly funny! - 5ToolPlayers
He is a action pack superhero!
crazy vampier killer man!! yeah!
Awesome, gory hero! - PlasmaticDuke05
She needs to be higher then Raven and Deadpool. Ten times more bad-ass. She literally hurled herself off a cliff and permanently DIED to save millions of people and so Hawkeye wouldn't have to do it. You can't possibly tell me that isn't noteworthy. - RosalinaX
What idiot said 'she needs to die'. She's the representation of badass female superheroes who can beat other superheroes that have powers!
Black widow has no powers but she's in the avengers
She's hot as Hell!V 3 Comments
How the hell is Quill lower then all the above?
He's funny and much better then Flash and Aquaman. - RosalinaX
Star Lord is the essential superhero. He is the leader of his own team, the guardians of the galaxy, for one thing. And he has an epic costume. He has more personality than batman and superman combined, and he is hilarious, but also very personal. he has 2 element guns, which are the coolest superhero items ever, AND, dur to his dad being a planet, he has superpowers of his own. And he played by Chris Pratt. Could you BE any more cool?
How he star lord this low? - DCfnaf
Groot and rocket are not better well actually uhjhh
If everybody knew Gambit, he would be number one. He is only 21 on this list because he isn't in many comic books.
super energy producer...! he got super style! - JonathanMartini1231
wooot i love his royal flush move! wooot!

Deathstroke is not a superhero! - HeRo657
He is awesome but not a superhero.
Deadpool rip off but he is still beastV 1 Comment
Me and this teddy bear did weed with this guy
Thunder buddies for life
Doctor Strange needs to be higher. He's super cool. - RosalinaX
! no one left a comment on Doctor strange！ HE IS BY FAR THE BEST SUPERHERO OF ALL TIME! HE HAS ONE OF THE INFINITY GEMS,CAN MANIPULATE TIME, HAS MAGIC, STOPPED THANOS ONCE...ETC. He is so awesome! he can simply freeze time and then he can kill everyone casually... not to mention his powerful infinity gem!
Though power is an important thing in a superhero, this is about best superheroes, not most powerful. - KingofHoundooms
No. - RosalinaX
Better than green arrow at leasst
He is in my opinion the best teen Titan ever and who doesn't think the ability to shape shift isn't cool as h***
Legendary superhero who needs more recognition. Why can't Fox make a silver surfer movie? Why are they making a gambit move instead? Silver Surfer would beast Gambit easily. The fans want to see the Surfer instead of Gambit. Who's been around longer Gambit or The Silver Surfer? Silver Surfer.
Are you kidding me... Captain America and Goku are ahead of the Silver Surfer? The Silver Surfer is hands down the most underrated super hero of all time.
Marvel's Most Powerful Superhero along with Thor, he deserves more recognition
barring jean grey would kick the top tens arse at the same time
As long as they do not wear mind-protecting helmets, Xavier can make any villain completely and senselessly insane my simply using his big mind.
He needs more than this.
Prof x is dead, sorry
The most powerful superhero of marvel.
Who can forget transformers
Optimus at 34 I thought you were made of sterner stuff
The collest guy in red and blue
Not comic book, toyline - 445956

Needs to be higher. No way is Beast Boy and Raven ahead of him. - RosalinaX
The sidekick of Batman. The Boy Wonder. Also home to 5 regular people.
Didn't seem to help batman out much but is definitely one of the most well known side-kicks
Guys! Why did you put Robin here. He is pretty awesome and cool. He is the only sidekivk in comic books that never fails.V 2 Comments

Squirrel Girl took down Thanos by herself. Need I say more? - ShuhBanggg

Chuck Norris' superhero name is The Invincible =^3
CHUCK NORRIS IS NOT A SUPERHERO!
They r cute n intelligent..
Super fighting robot!
Mega Man! Mega Man's a badass (or X)
But I don't remember being a comic book hero! I remember Mega Man being an anime show! :D Hey! Speaking of anime! I should show the mega man show to my friend who loves anime/manga! - sagat2010
I love the Megaman Manga! He's just the best superhero around! He respects people's choices and is super-brave!
