Most Overrated Comic Book Superheroes and Supervillains
First off batman is not a superhero, just a hero with lots of money and gadgets. And yes he's a skilled martial artist but it can only help you so much against someone with who can fly and shoot lasers out of his eyes. Second off batman can defeat anyone so long as he has prep time. That could take weeks or even months, but if he's caught off guard by some random guy with a gun, he's done. Third off, he could do anything simply because he's batman. How is batman lifting that I beam with one hand? Because he's batman. How is he defeating everybody in the justice league at once? Because he's batman. How can he do any impossible feat/task? All because he's batman.
I like Batman but for such a popular superhero he has a very flat character, it's all brooding and frowning, where's the joy? And despite the fact that he is in no way superhuman fanboys seem to think he can beat anyone 'with enough planning'. To hell with that, if a character knew Batman's greatest weapon was his tactics then they would just attack him before he had time to invent a strategy. If Bruce doesn't get thinking-time he's an easy kill. Also there's a DC short story where an ordinary guy talks about how easy killing Batman would be for him, the story shows how he could simply shoot Batman from an apartment window in the head and that would be the end of that. See? DC prooved how simple it would be to kill him.
Cap vs batman... Cap won when batman said you will beat me. That is dc cannon. Not marvel. The fact dc had superman beat Thor... Even though he is technically "magic" based which is a weakness to sups is a joke and to make that story cannon proved to dc that the super soldier strum is above what batman is. Bats can't beat 95% of know characters in marvel and the fact he can win in dc is just stupid. I'm a fan of both but put lex luthor vs him and sure he can win, brother blood, how the he'll does Bruce Wayne fight a necromancer. you have a reason batman fans and you believe it so come with it. Scarlet witch would solo dc universe in my opinion and she's nice, yet bats has something in his belt or a pre thought out plan to beat anyone so start your complaining now
Iconic but highly overestimated, he represents a lot of interesting tropes however because DC comics has portrayed him so badass (sometimes even more-so than more powerful people) fans now believe he can defeat anyone... with prep time of course which is not completely accurate. Batman may have stalled his fight with Superman in Dark Knight Returns but he did not actually defeat Supes.
I have difficulty watching an invincible character fight against those he is more powerful than. I often root against Superman because he is so OP, and his opponents are the ones who are creative and smart. He really is the anti-batman: Given all the physical tools, but gets outsmarted and outmaneuvered by his enemies.
Superman can be cool, as long as he doesn't get any more overpowered. I am a Superman fan, but, even I know he is overrated thanks to its overpower. He is an iconic hero on the other hand.
Note: Superman got shot with a kryptonite bullet by Metallo. (Superman/Batman: Public Enemies)
I really don't see the big deal about him. I mean he isn't even as cool as everyone says he is. part of being a cool superhero is facing challanges. if no one can ever even seem like a threat to you wheres the excitement? This is just what I think
When a guy with no superpowers can kick your ass in a fight and in box office numbers, it's time to go home.
Everyone hates Felicity so much...they put a nobody comic character this high up because they dislike Olicity...WOW.
Does absolutely nothing.
She is literally almost only on Arrow. Wow. Y'all hate Olicity THAT much?
She is from tumblr.
As a side character popping up every now and then he was fun. Now he is a bit overdone. Not to mention his humor is so overplayed that it takes away tension. His success all too often comes in making other good characters look like fools which is not cool (Taskmaster). As well being essentially the voice of the fans is a problem as they quite frankly make for lousy stories.
Deadpool is bland and unable to actually develop as a character beyond lame jokes and self abuse. Makes for entertainment the first time but after that he becomes very uninteresting.
No not just cause he just can't die. Because Deathstroke came first and Deadpool gets more love and fame.
Cool as he is, Deadpool gets too much attention.
Why are DC and WB powering down Wonder Woman's god like abilities (in the movies) and why isn't she shown flying around, she does have Hermes' gift of flight! The hell with the invisible plane she's a goddess and doesn't need it.
I think she fine. One of DCs titans (not teen titans I mean like the pillars of dc) and the only one I respect. But her weakness is weird.
I love how she's on a list saying she's overrated and the only other comment says "she cool".
The number of fans who prefer her to the Joker and who say that she'd win against many characters is ridiculous! I don't understand how they tend to forget that the Joker is the reason why she exists. He transformed his psychiatrist into Harley Quinn, the Joker himself!
Her fanbase is the worst! And she the most oversexeulized characters I've ever seen!
So overrated! Does nothing compared to deadpool
Holy crap, why is Deadpool, wolverine, magneto, doomsday, doctor doom and bullseye on this list?! TF?
More underrated in my opinion. Cyborg is overrated.
All his villains are awful and he has no real powers of his own. When his suit is destroyed then he is screwed! Not even Robert Downey Jr. Could make this lame hero cool.
Stupid and awful.
He is a good character, but widely considered one of the best characters Marvel has to offer. He isn't
The most annoying character ever.
Spiderman is most knowable superhero for casual and biggest superhero fan
Spiderman should be no1 or no2 in this list
Most boring superhero ever
Sara is 100% overrated and only popular because "she's a generic badass" or "she's hot."
I'm sorry but at least in Arrow (haven't seen Legends) she is so overrated.
A character created by CW's Arrow, she is a badass and deserves her role as the captain of the Waverider.
He is almost always the first superhero brought up when someone talks about Marvel comics. It is so frustrating how everyone gushes over him when he appears in every x-men movie. He is used so often that we barely get a chance to see other characters develop. as cool as he is, some of us would want to see othe heroes step up.
It seems wolverine is so overrated. I would put him above batman on this list.
Are you serious? Wolverine is not overrated at all. Screw the person who put him on this dam list
Can't defeat D.C. and Marvel combined. Superman could defeat him alone. Thor could defeat him alone, and he did in Thor: Ragnarok. Scarlet Witch could defeat him alone. Jean Grey could defeat him alone. Iron Man could defeat him alone. Vision could defeat him alone. Doctor Strange could beat him alone. Deadpool could beat him alone. Yeah, he could TOTALLY destroy Marvel and D.C. Combined. Makes sense
Why isn't Hulk further up on this list? It seems that everybody thinks he the greatest and best and so unstoppable. I would put him in the top five
Unlimited strength? Can jump into space? Can beat DC & Marvel combined?! No... Hulk's too overrated...
Yeah she's hot and epic, but she's used too much. Everyone is too supportive of her and the DC media never gives her a good origin story.
He is lame and is only a hero with his stupid science experiment.100% loses to batman. If you disagree go to death battle batman vs cap dummy
Says not to do drugs. Gets his powers through drugs.
The U.S. deserves better than this guy.
He is overrated because he should be.
I mean, he's great, but when compared to other more creative villains, he's a touch too simplistic. If he wasn't in some great stories everyone would've forgotten about the Clown Prince of Crime
Curse the one who put the great Joker on this list!
I mean, the Joker is the best character a superhero movie could ever have
Great villain but just as overexposed as his nemesis, he works for street level villains but some think he's the greatest villain ever and I just don't believe that
Gonna piss of a lot of fanboys but..
The joker is not the greatest villain ever.
Other than this guy, you may as well change the title of this list to "most iconic superheroes/supervillains"
