The Top Ten
1 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.

There always is Batman and Spiderman who come down to the greatest superheroes of all time. I definitely do love Batman, but not only can he not be the greatest superhero while he has no superpowers, but Spiderman is ten thousand times Batman will ever be. He is the most relateable, heartfelt, and amazing character anyone could ever think of creating. Everyone knows him. His comics do amazingly well, and even though most of the Spider-Man movies don't do the greatest job of displaying and embracing who Peter Parker/Spidey is, they still are (most of them) great movies and some of the best comic book movies I've ever seen. Spider-Man is on the number one spot of this list, and for many reasons we can keep going on and on, he is here to stay.

Spiderman is the single greatest superhero ever. He is the center of Marvel's popularity. Spidey also has the most awesome Marvel villain of all, Venom. Spiderman is the coolest hero I have ever known and all of his movies kick ass. Tobey Maguire was so great as Spiderman, and Andrew Garfield was great too. SPIDERMAN RULES!

Every kid knows only 3 superheros name, superman batman and spiderman. Spiderman has been the face of marvel for decades. Only with the start of mcu Ironman became famous otherwise Peter Parker was crushing the whole merchandise with his charisma and sarcasm.

Spidey is the greatest marvel character in comics. He's my number 2, second only to Black Panther. Why isn't Black Panther number one; with those moves, anyway, until Panther is on here, I agree. Spidey is number one (I like acrobats)!

2 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.

A remarkable and interesting character with the most badass powers that enables him to showcase fierce and exciting fighting techniques on the screen. The story of Wolverine and basically everything about him makes him the most intense, grittiest and fascinating character in the marvel universe. The Wolverine 2013 is also one of the best movies. Amazing!

Wolverine is an amzing character! Claws make him one of the most violent heroes ever to exist. A rule to me is BLOOD makes a character (Wolverine) awesome!
Wolverine is like the BEST OF THE BEST X-Men Charcter. Wolverine is amazing because of his claws and the power to grab and kill right away.

Wolverines a beast! IF you have read the civil war wolverine series you know what I am talking about. That might just be the best one I have read so far

I think Wolverine is amazing because of his awesome powers and ability to fight bad guys better than any other super hero!

3 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 was portrayed by Robert Downey Jr.

Different times have seen different characters popularity rise and fall. In 2013, there is no bigger superhero than Tony Stark. RDJ in the 3 Iron Man films plus the Avengers has made Iron Man bigger then Batman, Spider Man, Superman, Wolverine and all the other.

Iron man is the coolest guy ever he has 42 different powerful
Armors, he can even control it in at the same time. He is the one who
Save the entire city and the avengers in the movie the avengers.

This should totally be #1. Tony Stark is like the best Marvel character ever. He may be a bit arrogant and the is the whole playboy thing, but he defeats bad guys all thanks to his genius.

It's so cool IronMan is as popular as Batman and Spider-Man even though his popularity is from 10 years ago while Spider-Man's popularity is since the 70s.

4 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.

Deadpool is:
A) Funny as hell. He is crazy and doesn't fear death (specially as he is inmortal and in love with death itself) or anyone. Would mock The One ABove All if he ever met him.
B) Inmortal (thanos curse)
C) Death's (the cosmic entity) love (which amde thanos jellous)
D) A regeneration monster
E) One of the better trained and most valued mercenaries in marvel.
F) Crosses the 4th wall and speaks to the reader or the writter. He has even managed to threaten the writters to help him (that's liek threatening TOAA). Funny.
G) Deadpool. Is. Deadpool. Enough arguments. Chimichangas.

How can any other heroe be even 1% as cool as this guy.

Deadpool sounds really hilarious and awesome and insane yet still totally cool. He should at least be higher than number 5. I can't wait until the movie comes out later this week.

He should at least be in the top 5! He is Deadpool. He is not the average superhero. He is the one that breaks the mold of average superheroes. He isn't as serious as the other heroes.

Deadpool is the best the only reason Spidey is on number one is cause he's the most iconic but Deadpool rocks! He's funny,breaks the fourth wall and cannot be killed! So glad that now he is number 2 not Wolverine no offense to Wolverine and his fans.

5 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.

Dude, hulk has infinite strength and is known for these deeds. Holding up a mountain, killing the red king, taking down almost all the marvel characters, and (My personal favorite) cracking onslaught's indestructible armor. All the avengers couldn't do it but then they just let out hulk.

Watch any movie or read any comic, it takes multiple heroes/characters to bring down the HULK, or to calm him down. He destroys anything or anyone in his path, the only time I believe where he was in trouble was against COSMIC Spiderman, but please... that's pretty weak. HULK is clearly the #1

HULK is unique in any fashion. A potential rival to Vector the Crocodile, he can smash, thump his chest, lift anything more than two times his very heavy weight and HULK Smash anyone or anything. He is the greatest Marvel hero of all time.

I think the hulk should be the greatest marvel superhero because he has unmeasurable energy and great power over the other heroes. Hulk can single handedly defeat every hero ever created. Hulk may not have the brains to know what exactlly he is doing but he can still woop any of them.

6 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 has a pure heart, and his movies are amazing. Every time you see him, you learn a valuable life lesson. We aren't looking for the more powerful characters in the Marvel Universe. We are looking for the true hero who displays what being a superhero and a leader is just as well as Superman, and does the best job of displaying what being a true soldier is like.
Come on, guys. He deserves to be at least on the #3 spot.

Though Siderman's great, Cap. is the hero that makes others look like students. He practically is the face of Marvel, underdog to hero. Everyone's favorite story, he's above all the modest and true hero. Not wanting to do it for someone, not revenge, plain and simple. Humbleness is the ruler of great qualities, he takes the gold, silver, and bronze for that. So great that it goes around.

The movies...
The comics...
The game...
What more can this superhero do
He is the first avenger!
My brother hates him whats up with that!

Based on his ideals, Cap should be the standard superhero everyone should look up to. I do anyway.

7 Venom Venom, or the Venom Symbiote, is an alias used by several fictional characters appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, commonly in association with Spider-Man.

Venom is off the chain. I especially like Flash Thompson as Venom.

Venom is so cool. He is one of the most iconic villains ever.

Just my favorite Marvel character.

Venom beat him first

8 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 more.

Undeniably one of the greatest Marvel Characters ever. The Avengers would be barely anything without at least some version of Thor whether Jane Foster or Odinson. The concept of not being able to lift his hammer, Mjolnir, unless you're worthy, is one of the best twists for a superhero and allows character development for others besides Thor him/herself. This hero deserves a spot on the top 5. Come on, my people. You're seriously gonna let DEADPOOL be taking a higher position than THOR?!?!?

We are talking about strength and Spiderman does not deserve any of that. Thor is definitely the one unless One Above All just destroys him from all his comics. Thor wields one of the strongest weapons in the universe, a hammer called Mjlonir.

Virtually a god, a mystical hammer, can control the weather with super strength to boot. You just should not logically be able to beat Thor.

A unique character, one of the only powerful beings who can be defeated ( Hulk's way to overpowered ) this guy can kick trash without a weapon or invincibility, heck he doesn't even have any armor protecting him ( Sorry for the Cap, Hulk, Iron Man hate ) Thor is definitely one of the greatest marvel heroes of all time

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

One of the coolest and strongest characters in marvel! Thor, hulk and dr strange are nothing compared to the power of the rider

Ghost Rider can beat anyone in fighting with his fire.

He is so awesome!

10 Green Goblin The Green Goblin is the alias of several fictional supervillains appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, mostly those starring Spider-Man. The character first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man #14, and since then he has become one of the characters most famous villains. He was more.

Best villain in history, surpassing Darth Vader easily in my opinion. If there is a Spiderman movie in the DVD shops, cinemas; or a videogame dedicated to Spiderman, it is all out there thanks to good old Norman Osborn. I have read almost 500 old Amazing Spider-Man comics. Read about at least 600 characters in marvel universe but none was as impressive as Green Goblin and his genius.

The Contenders
11 Daredevil Daredevil is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Daredevil was created by writer-editor Stan Lee and artist Bill Everett, with an unspecified amount of input from Jack Kirby. The character was first portrayed in live action by Rex Smith in the 1989 television movie The Trial of the Incredible Hulk. He was played by Ben Affleck in the 2003 film Daredevil, and is portrayed by Charlie Cox in the Marvel Television productions Daredevil and The Defenders on Netflix for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The NETFLIX series is amazing. His origin is. I mean, you're talking about the hero who teamed up with Spidey many times, took part in Civil War, Avengers vs X-Men, and a bunch more epic Marvel events, and even fought the Punisher! With radar sense, Batman-like fighting styles, and legendary foes such as the Kingpin, this is definitely one of my favorite superheroes, and deserves a spit on the top ten list, without question!

This is unbelievable. How does Daredevil not even appear on the top tens? Let's go guys! This guy is legendary! There is no way that Venom should get the 8th spot and Daredevil is on the Honorable Mentions.

Part ninja, part acrobat. Superhuman senses and balance. Matt Murdock is the ultimate underdog in the MU.

The T.V Series has the best action scenes I have ever seen. The character is straight amazing.

12 Dr. Doom Doctor Doom is a Marvel comic book supervillain. His first appearance was in The Fantastic Four #5 (July 1962).

Possibly the best fictional character ever created, every true Marvel fan knows about DOOM.

Best villain of all time. I have all the comic books that includes him.

13 Thanos Thanos is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character was created by Jim Starlin and Mike Friedrich. The character first appeared in Iron Man #55 and has been portrayed by actors Damion Poitier and Josh Brolin in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Finally a Villain who made Marvel Villain a bigger attention and more recognition to come. GO THANOS! You are very best to know fellow up on!

He is a boss! No spoilers but if all of you saw infinity war, he would have been number one

He's the strongest person in the universe. he has vanquished half the universe already

14 Nightcrawler Nightcrawler is a member if the X-Men. His main power is teleportation. He appears in many video games, movies, and TV shows that have the X-Men.

The charming BAMFing devil. He's as good natured and well mannered as he is deadly. The guy actually teleported from a mission briefing and gave Kitty a NightCrawler soft toy to play with as she was too young to go with the x men to fight. How can you not put someone like that in top 10

One of the best!

15 Loki Loki Laufeyson, or Loki Odinson, is a fictional character appearing in the American comic books published by Marvel Comics. He is the adoptive brother and archenemy of Thor, and is known as the "God of Mischief". In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the character has been portrayed by Tom Hiddleston.

Loki is awesome in every way possible in the films, I mean he's played by a great actor, has amazing lines, and can do anything really.

Okay so Loki is cool, but I don't get why people like Thor so much when Loki is so much better.

Loki can't be below any villain on this list. He just can't!

He is so mischievous and funny. I mean, what's not to love?

16 Carnage Carnage (Cletus Kassidy) is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, usually as an enemy of Spider-Man. He appeared for the first time in The Amazing Spider-Man #361.

He's just so relatable

He can duplicate!

17 Storm Storm (Ororo Munroe) is a mutant superhero appearing in Marvel Comics. Her first appearance was in Giant-Size X-Men #1 in 1975 and was created by Len Wein and Dave Cockrum. Her main super power is weather manipulation.

Probably the most powerful female X-Man along with Jean Grey, Strom is classified as an Omega level mutant. Seriously, what mutant can create tornadoes, storms, and flash floods with a wave of their hand? Her will is impressive and her skills as a thief are one of the best in the Marvel universe. She's way more powerful than her teammates, if you compare her to Nightcrawler, or even Colossus or Iceman.

Though she is claustrophobic, she tries to be strong and fight against evil at all costs. She tries to see through a problem and find solutions analytically unlike Wolverine. Her ability to control the mother nature is one of the most powerful abilities one can have as a mutant.

Ororo Munroe is the most recognizeable female mutant in marvel universe. I like her mohawk look and the different costumes that she wear. I like her style. And most of all, I like her attitude. Her powers are really awesome. She is even considered an omega level mutant. She's my favorite X-man character and her team X-men gold is my favorite too. Storm has a great heart.

Storm is the epitome of strong, independent women. She is absolutely unmatched in beauty, grace and power.
Although, they could have chosen a better person to play her in the X-Men Movies... Halle Berry was sorry as hel..

18 Magneto Magneto is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, commonly in association with the X-Men.

The best... either him, mystique, proffesor X, or Storm, or Captain America, or Bucky

I like the younger one better.

19 The 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.

Garth Ennis's run is one of the best runs I have ever read. Mother Russia is probably the best storyline in that run, but it's hard to choose among so many good arcs (Barracuda, Long Cold Dark, In the Beginning, etc etc)

Frank Castle is the most underrated character in marvel. He is smart, good with a gun, can tolerate enormous amount of pain, and has the most honor out of anyone in comics. Semper-Fi!

20 Dr. Octopus Doctor Octopus, also known as Doc Ock, Doc Octopus, and the Superior Spider-Man, is a fictional character, a supervillain appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man #3. In Spider-Man 2 and Spider-Man: No Way Home, he was portrayed by Alfred Molina.
21 Mysterio Mysterio is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. He is most often depicted as an enemy of Spider-Man. He made his debut in The Amazing Spider-Man #13. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he is portrayed by Jake Gyllenhaal.

He's my all time favorite Marvel Villain.

22 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 more.

Doctor Strange isn't it

23 Professor X
24 Jean Grey Jean Grey, or Jean 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. Created by writer Stan Lee and artist Jack Kirby, the character first appeared in The X-Men #1 (September 1963). Famke Janssen portrayed the character in five installments of the X-Men films. Sophie Turner portrays a younger version in the 2016 film X-Men: Apocalypse. Turner will return to portray the character as well as her alternate personality the Phoenix in the 2019 film Dark Phoenix.

She can't control her anger and destroys planets. Its just amazing

25 Cyclops Cyclops is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics and is a founding member of the X-Men.
