Best DC Comics CharactersAlexandr
The Top Ten
I simply love everything abt this Magnificent Hero
He is not superhero but smartest
I think there is not doubt that Batman is the best Superhero in DC comics. He is one of the most interesting characters, the supporting cast is almost flawless and, of course, the best rogues gallery in all of comic book history. Plus, thanks to Nolan's trilogy and Arkham games, he has been spreading through media faster than any other heroes. Let's just hope Zack Snyder doesn't mess his reputation up with the upcoming movie.141 Comments
Bat man killed him dam it! - mikenike87
I never really liked Superman that much and I never really knew why, it's just whenever I see him he's always saving the entire world from a bald guy he could just throw in a jail cell and he couldn't do anything about it. True batman doesn't kill and pretty much causes more destruction with letting the villains live but Batman has more interesting enemy's and stories so that can all be made up with bat and awesomeness. Superman just sucks.
It's funny when people say that Superman is bland and cliche when they should be reminded that he is one of the oldest superheroes dating all the way back to 1938. He INVENTED cliche superheroes. There weren't any other unique ideas for superheroes or even villains at the time. - Mcgillacuddy
The superhero’s power is super lol - lemur61 Comments
The Flash is possibly the most important character in DC, if not all of comics. The Flash (either Barry Allen, Wally West, or Bart Allen) has been at the center of every major DC event in history, and the history of The Flash is pretty much linked with the history of DC itself. In the Golden Age, Jay Garrick Flash was one of the first superheroes, but after WWII people didn't really care about superheroes that much (punching Hitler wasn't cool anymore). So DC rebooted Flash as Barry Allen, a mild-mannered police scientist, and people loved him so much that they started buying comics again, and DC rebooted Green Lantern, Atom, and many more. This is around the time Marvel started being a thing, and they were helped by the jump in comic sales caused by The Flash. So essentially, Flash saved not only DC comics, but all of superhero comics. He is also a superhero who is truly more than the man under the mask. Sure, Batman is "an idea", and so is Superman, but it'll always be ...more
He is the man with unimaginable and dangerous powers. The Flash is not just a man or a superhero who runs fast but, he is the person with truly responsible superpowers. Without showing of or threatening people like any other superheroes he do his work very efficiently. His cool personality makes him a better citizen as well as a superhero having positive thinking. Every superhero has their own personal issues and they dragged the whole world into some worst situations where they cannot reset the things. But The Flash is only one who changed the course of history and reset it as it is. as a normal person for me The Flash is only one who cares about feelings of others. He is very sensitive person and respect the feelings of people. That's why he is the REAL SUPERHERO.
The Flash is one of the best and the most important characters in the DC multiverse. No offense, batman, but HE CHANGED AN ENTIRE DC TIMELINE! (The Flashpoint). He also gives people hope and inspires them in a way no other superhero has ever done so. And the most important of all- his personality, his charming, funny personality gives him an edge where he seems relaxed even when the situations at at their worse. I think, the Flash can easily take down all the marvel Avengers by himself.
Infinitely more powerful and cooler than Batman, I rate the Flash as my favorite, however, Superman should be number 1. I simply don't get why Batman is so popular. It's unrealistic that he would survive any of the blows he takes as he is simply a human being. Concussions galore, extreme strength limitations etc..97 Comments
Just, THE BEST!
How are Batman, Superman and the Flash, above Joker?!
The. Joker is one of my favorite Villains in any type of media, he is probably the most interesting and coolest villain ever and causes Batman a lot of trouble.34 Comments
If anyone's a hero it's Hal Jordan, all about inspiring others to overcome fear to reach greatness, and putting his all into protecting others. Also he punches batman in the face, ultimate props for sticking it to that depressing bastard
The ring bearer as I would like to call him is probably the second strongest hero in Justice league. (second to flash) While Batman is definitely cooler than him but his at there on the top. And yes he can beat anytime.
Never really liked the idea of his ring having to be charged for every ten minutes for him to gain power. I like Hal Jordan as a character though just not Green Lantern that much.
Green lantern is the best in my opinion having no fears and being able to overcome any situation16 Comments
Most important woman characer, same batman is most important character all the time
How is she not higher! She should be AT LEAST number 2. She's absolutely amazing!
Should be much higher.
She is part of the three main heroes of the Justice League. - Sa26
She's the greatest female superhero and is really cool. Who else has an invisible jet or a lasso of truth? She's very beautiful too. Steve Trevor is an extremely lucky guy to be her boyfriend.26 Comments
Its cool how she tops all the superheros love ya girl - Izalien
Loved her so much in Suicide Squad. - Sa26
Wow so expected for the females on the list to be so low. Harley deserves at least 5th place and wonder woman should be much higher - definitely beating deathstroke, Martian manhunter, nightwing and the flash
Harley Quinn is so cool! She will always be the best villain to me. In my opinion, her best appearance was in Suicide Squad. Harley Quinn has such a background story and is a character that will never be forgotten!21 Comments
Billionaire business man and owner of queen industries
On the other corner...
Iron man, billionaire playboy. And owner of stark industries
This is deep thoughts by lemur... - lemur
He is one of my favorite characters
This guy is an awesome character who is not given due recognition. But still I think giving him more cool and awesome tech and also some more cool villains could increase his popularity.
Awesome character he can go head on with the bats and probably win or tie if you play justice league gods among us he kills Solomon Grundy who's a 3 ton zombie and arrow just made him ten times better and is able to fight destroke and get his head his chopped off which is an amazing feat.38 Comments
He be stroking one part - lemur
My third favourite hero (after lex and bat) he's just the most badass I think.
Deathstroke Is No Doubt My 2nd Favorite Character In The DC Comics, (Behind Batman Of Course). When He First Appeared In Teen Titans, I Knew He Was A Badass. Then His Media Spread On With The Arkham Videos Games, And The Comic Books. Like Batman, He Doesn't Need Superpowers To Be Badass. - TundraTopTenners
If you watched teen titans, you would know why he's so amazing. He made all of the teen titans go insaine by showing them individually the cold, hard truth which I think is an amazing concept for a villain30 Comments
Cabbage man - lemur
Come on guys mm has the best leadership qualities and I love him because he is mature like no other
HOW are wonder woman and abd the flash ahead of this guy? he could take them down in a millionth of a millionth of a second
This guy is awesome13 Comments
Underrated... He is the most realistic hero/fictional character of all of them because it is possible for a hero like him to exist IRL. Let's be honest, if there was a dude named "Batman" running in a bat costume IRL he'd be a joke (not that I hate batman). Nightwing's fighting style and suit is also realistic and awesome..
I mean come on we always give a lot of credit to the main characters, like the batman, and forget characters like nightwing! Amazing costume, amazing persona, amazing alter ego (Robin John Blake), amazing everything! TEAM NIGHTWING! Especially when portrayed by Joseph Gordon-Levitt
We all love Batman, Superman, and Wonderwoman, but we often forget one important comic book hero. Nightwing has everything a superhero needs. A tragic backstory, a strive to protect, a fight for justice, and a connection to Batman. Without knowing it, he created one of the most important legacies in comic book history. The mantle of Robin. For years that was his symbol, and he soon became the leader of the Teen Titans. He was known as a great leader, even when he branched away to become Nightwing. Even in that persona he was great, becoming a big brother to Bruce's other adoptive kids and being the amazing protector of Bludhaven. Eventually, when his adoptive father died, he became Batman... the damn Batman! He chose his adoptive father's son as his Robin, and they were THE Dynamic Duo, until Bruce was brought away from the dead. Dick became Nightwing again, and still continues to be an amazing and inspirational to DC comic lovers around the world.
'You'll never know if you can ...more
Nighwting is the alter ego of Dick Grayson. He was the first Robin and even was the "BATMAN" for a period of time. In fact when Damian Wayne started as Robin, the Batman was Dick Grayson.24 Comments
He killed Superman
Superman shall feel my wrath today for I am ben 10 or am I lex luthor? who cares
Best dc hero
He should be up there as King of Atlantis, super strength. He's not dummy. Smart as batman when he's on his own.
Geoff John's New 52 run was really really good. A lot of people don't know about the powers from his trident that basically make him a god. He can control the sea, storms, earthquakes, shoot lightning and energy blasts, create force fields, and more.
Aquaman is most underrated fictional thing I've ever seen in anything. I hope Justice League shows his true power. He's such a badass - Username12316 Comments
He is the most powerful but not as powerful as dark side
Isn't shazam a music thing?
Shazam is one of my favorite characters
If more peoples were smart enough shazam would have2% because captain marvel is the second shazam'sname3 Comments
Agree, Scarecrow deserves better. - CedreticFomento
Really? Scarecrow, one of the best Batman villians is only at 17?
He will kill batman destroy justice leauge own Gotham city own the country own the continent own the world then dimension travel and take those dimensioms - lemur
Don't you mean DC comics should make into a superhero who TRAINS batman? or they could just leave as he is, he's awesome anyway
I don't know super butler?
He can kick batman's ass6 Comments
I hate how with batman and Super man and stuff, people have written about how cool they actually are but for catwoman it's about her boobs. She is smart, sophisticated and actually really strong. I love her character development, especially in Batman Returns froma shy awkward woman to a bad ass cat. Harley was just shoved on the animated show because Joker needed a girlfriend, whereas Catwoman dates back to the 1940s. Don't get me wrong I do love Harley and Ivy, like I'm obsessed with the Sirens but I can't stand those girl who only love Harley because they're like ' I'm totes a psycho too ', they don't even look into her back story. or they've only seen suicide squad. Catwoman deserves so much more love. Also I'm slightly obsessed with Batman x Catwoman!
Best boobs ever!
M close runner up 2nd favorite. My X Box profile mini me has donned her get up the past year and a half. Sexy, sassy, slinky, clever and gotta love the whip. Love Selina Kyle!
Yeah sure there are greats out there like Batman and the flash, but I personally love Rorschach! He might even be my favorite fictional character! - PumpkinKing109
By far one of the best on this list. He is the batman that will never be. He is insane, but very determined to punish the criminals of New York, an will start at nothing to release the true mask murderer. He is one of my all time favorites.
Like Batman, he isn't a mutant and would kick ass. He is also an anti hero like Venom that would finish his enemies in order to get answers. I definitely think he would be a good character in a DC Ultimate Alliance Game.
Rorschach is special no dc character is as cool as him7 Comments
She can literally banish and possess most people on this list!
Best Heroine of DC
She is cool, special ( Demon-human hybird) and powerful
My all time favorite dc character.
Female batman right here.3 Comments
He killed superman. And the unkillable deadpool he should be number 1
Darkseid killed batman before and he can do it again
He is the best of all the super heroes and Dick Grayson is the best.
Nightwing is AMAZING! Red Hood is pretty cool. And I know they are the same person, but I just don't like Dick Grayson, Jason Todd, Tim Drake, Damian Wayne or any of the others as Robin. I just see Robin as that tween sidekick that someone as legendary and amazing as Batman just doesn't need. I do LOVE Nightwing Though
If you like batman vote robin, batman is incomplete without robin
Lol to lego robin4 Comments
Riddle me this: why is the Riddler not in top 20?
He deserves a way better score
Riddles all day
He challenges Batman on an intellectual level something that can't be said for most Batman villains.The psychology of the character is also fascinating as his gimmick is an actual mental disorder.His narcissism also makes him an incredibly entertaining character to read about.

These are all stories that illustrate what makes Riddler such a great and compelling villain
Zatanna is amazing and a magician as well. She should be at the top instead of Nightwing (who she goes out with). Also she has so many cool abilities unlike superman.
The coolest character ever!
She deserves it!
Scary and good
The worlds strongest super villain of all time.
Doomsday is really strong on my ps4 it took me a week to beat him
Hawkman is awesome His Wings look elegent he has super strength and has the wbility to disrupt magic with his mace, oh and Is a thangarian warrior Should I really say anything else?
The fact that Booster Gold is in the top 25 makes me very very happy. I saw his episode in Justice League and I immediately read his old and new line of comics and loved them to death. He is seriously now my favorite superhero.
She looks very cute and hot when artist Michael Turner created her in one of the DC story arc, which I love outta the Superman series.
Supergirl is super awesome in the series SuperGirl! LIKEBOY COME ON
At lest he could be at 23 - Matthew453
He's one of my favourite
Agreed. If people were aware of just how powerful Doctor Fate is he would be higher on this list
One of the most powerful characters in DC!
Vote for Dr. Fate NOW!2 Comments
She's my favorite superhero. Strong, intelligent, techno wizard... BATGIRL!
Oh come on dc lets get better
New 52 Barbra Gordon all day
What's mine is mine
and mine and mine,
mine and mine and mine
not yours! - Baconshark
He is my favourite DC character he is epic
Why why is he at 31 no he should be at least top 5 top ten should make a top ten anti hero for like lobo or red hood or any anti hero sure he is kinda a hero right now but in his own terms also I like the bond between Jason and Bruce
Red Hood is my favorite anti-hero. The Batman fans voted for him to die, and he came back from the dead with a vengeance. I'm currently reading Red Hood and Arsenal and it's amazing. - ShuhBanggg
Have a red mask is cool3 Comments
Who han I like the wepsite but he must be in top 15
Atom is awesome and could save the day any day! 🎉🎉
Bane is awesome guys. I mean, come on! He broke Batman's back, for crying out loud.
The guy is a super good villain. He's super strong. On my PlayStation, it took me 45 days to beat him.
Bane is really strong
Second thing! He's a GOD-DAMN SUPER SOLDIER!
Awesome like his missiles and I say his 70 percent robot like his everything should be better than catwoman think twice
Raise the roof for robots
Superman rip off
This isn't really debatable
Out of touch with so much stuff it's quite sad, but he could end every super hero and villain without any effort. Pure energy is hard to face.
He has almost unlimited power - Username123
HE CAN DESTOY YOU IN A SUB-ATOMIC WAY! he should be higher on this list!
Starfire I feel is such a deep character in a way that others aren't and I just love reading about her! Nightwing x Star Forever!
Actually Zatanna and Nightwing are not a canon at comics. Zatanna's too old for him anyway. She's usally paired with Bruce.
No Starfire and Nightwing! Nightwing and his current date Zattana!
Star fire is very cool #girlpower
He is an amazing, really strong, and under rated. He has more than once once taken down the young justice and the justice league. He is not my favorite but was to far down in the list.
Making Mexicans cool! Underrated and awesome suit!
Blue Beetle looks really cool! 😉
Tim is more intelligent than even batman. Not to mention he has a very big fandom
Just want to say to the guy who says tim is smarter than batman... Nope - bob_mc_bobinson
Best batman sidekick ever
SCARES THE CRAP OUTTA ME
How the fric do the wonder twins breast the Best Flash villian ever
Cold is a thief,criminal and occasional murderer but he,s not that evil.in fact he is a likeable man Who loves his sister and treats his underlings far better than most villains Like Darth Vader or Tony Soprano.he is a Man (of his own) ethics.he may Rob central city during Gorilla War but he'll protect the civilians doing it and other small things such as his genuine sympathy When Ralph Dibny's wife was murdered and his disgust When Inertia tricked him to help with Killing Bart Allen
HOW IS HE 81! HE IS FAR AND AWAY THE BEST FLASH VILLAN AND LEGEND. - errrr
