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.

21 Aquaman Aquaman Aquaman is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. Created by Paul Norris and Mort Weisinger, the character debuted in More Fun Comics #73.

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.

25 Punisher Punisher The Punisher is a fictional antihero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character was created by writer Gerry Conway and artist John Romita, Sr., with publisher Stan Lee green-lighting the name.

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. =)

Number #1

28 Silver Surfer 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.

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.

barring jean grey would kick the top tens arse at the same time
- bromleymonkey

Marvel's Most Powerful Superhero along with Thor, he deserves more recognition

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

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.
