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
Thor should be hereV 328 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.
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
These comics are the best actuallyV 134 Comments
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.
The only true person who fights for truth, Justice, and the American way is Superman.V 109 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.
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
Wolverine is the best, He is awesome Ugh I hate all the DC people in the top two people who have no clue about comics just vote for them because they are the most popular to seven year olds. GO MARVEL!
You are bestV 58 Comments
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. "
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!
Kick anyone's ass with gadgets and gizmos he even defeated the hulk
He is the best but I do like spider Man too thanks to Stan Lee for all of these AMAZING superheros RIP to the BEST superhero creator EVERV 55 Comments
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.
He was my first favorite superhero and I will miss him.
He's got a shield!
Captain should be first because he has good thinking skills and leadership and best fighter,
I like cap
Thanks for the creators.
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.
SMASH! - TheGrayDude55V 34 Comments
Super Commando Dhruva is actually one of those heroes who has not been inspired from any other character in the world and has a very unique Identity. Unlike any other Super Hero, Super Commando Dhruva, doesn't carry any weapons, except his Star Belt which he uses in extreme emergencies, and instead uses anything appropriate that finds on situation as a weapon. His main power is that he is exceptionally witty and sometimes even overcome situations without use of any weapons. Many of his foes who were once danger for society have become his friends and help him in missions from time to time, all because how he tackled them, and the self realization that they are doing wrong. I don't think any other comic super hero has ever made his foe a friend. That's why I say he is very unique, right above the list with Batman.
My friend, I love Super Commando Dhruv too, but we must accept that he has been heavily influenced and sometimes copied from Batman, Robin (Jason Todd) and Bucky Barnes.
Rank doesn't matter for me because the comics readers in India are very less in comparison to western countries. And the comics readers outside India are not aware about Super Commando Dhruv because we don't have any movie or T.V. series, English comics or something like that. But as I have read both indian and foreign comics I am quite sure that Dhruv is in the top league with Batman and Spider man and much better than anyone else.
Best selling hero in India.
Oh you've got to be kidding me. - 445956V 953 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 best one. I am obsessed with him. He is amazingV 50 Comments
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.
He's a beast. enough saidV 13 Comments
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 American
Thor is by far better than most of the people before him, including Batman, Superman, Cap, Iron Man, Green Lantern, the 2 Indian heroes, and the hulk. Should at least be in top 10. He is so awesome and can beat hulk any day.
He's so funny... and its just cool to watch him. - TheGrayDude55V 22 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.
All of the above could kick her @$$ but she is most definitely the hottest super hero
Amazon Warrior PrincessV 23 Comments
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.
Deadpool is easily the coolest comic book hero/anti hero. He's so cool about everything and well... he broke the fourth wall people... the fourth wall...
The best superhero everV 41 Comments
Nagraj a most powerful Indian superhero. He have snakes power like- many types of snake, invisibility, lot of arms power and more...
Nagraj has more power than maximum super heros he should have rank near about 10th
Nagraj is so powerful have his snake in lot of numbers his poison is so hard no one can take it.

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!
Most grounded Marvel superhero who is relatable, but also has some of the coolest fighting skillsV 11 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 best.if you say why means you don't know about Goku.V 57 Comments
He just not solve the problem. He Destroy the problem
His passion against crime is amazing.
Great work by raj comics.
God, who is this guy?
Why is Goku on this list?
I don't know who Doga even is, I just want my post to be seen
Here's my list:
8.Rocket and Groot
10. Ok, I admit Goku
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
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.
He's the DC equivalent of Spiderman, and he's extremely underrated. We saw him from the time he was orphaned as a young preteen boy to now, he's all grown up and is making a path for himself apart from Batman (except that time where he became Batman). And despite going through perhaps a more depressing backstory than Batman, he's remained mostly optimistic in his career. If people really knew him, he'd be higher up.V 6 Comments
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.
Stick up for the little guy! Why does everyone hate watchmen so much!? HE WAS EPIC! - Dr_Sandvichius
He should be in the top 5! - PumpkinKing109V 11 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
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?
He rules pretty much 70% of earth.
Every sea monster is at his disposal.
He has Poseidon's trident.
Come on, how is he not in the top ten, or top twenty.
spawn kiks but and can beat anyone
Spawn was given his powers by the devil and uses them to fight evil, bad ass!
Spawn is a favorite, good job to image comics. It is like the only superhero to go to each time. - iliescu

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. =)

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

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. )
He is as strong as Deadpool and wolvern because he is also immortal like them, but the difference between both of them are he is faster
because of his sweet motorcycle. He has a chain that could be his weapon. He can also burn peoples souls. He should be in first place not in 30th place.
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

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.

Parmanu! A "24/7" Superhero with multiple superpowers & when he is not beating the crap out of mega-villains he is still fighting against crime as Inspector Vinay, a Delhi Police Cop. He handles villains with supernatural powers as well as India's top Dons, strategists specialist in mind games and evil schemes. Oh...Did I mention he is also a part time model/actor.
- Mohit Sharma (Trendy Baba)
An Indian superhero having great powers like invisibility, shrinking of size, atomic energy etc.
Is an Indian comic super hero with lots of power he can fly, he has a super belt. Lovely character in yellow dress.
