Best DC Comics CharactersAlexandr
The Top Ten
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.
Most iconic of DC Comics subsidiary of Warner Brothers(Known for animation video things such as Animaniacs cartoon) and Time Warner in charge mostly. Possibly the best franchise and character the company ever dealt with. The dark bat knight with white eyes can be seen at times in deeper shades of blue also. Saving the main city of Gotham from high mounted places where balances right from wrong as their best hero. Many versions determined, the gadgets that invent from the start through and sometimes otherwise derived wins the matches as a true caped crusader should. An escape is not much far either as there are methods in any medium that the character may traverse. Jolly truly wonderful, fine and dandy,
Batman is the one with the best stories and has the strongest mind of them all. He has the tactical advantage in nearly every situation and his combat skills are often unmatched. How does that not indicate on him being the best DC hero of all time? With a little of preparation time Batman is able to take down anyone, even Superman! All of this he achieves with no superpowers, just his mind, combat skills, detective skills, tactics and gadgets. He is pure awesomeness.
Best stories, best games, best movies (The Dark Knight, Batman 1989, Under the Red Hood). Best superhero of all time.V 135 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.
He can travel through time and make his own timeline and travel to earth in a different universe dr strange isn’t the only one that can travel through timeV 96 Comments
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.
He's the first and greatest superhero of all time. People may think he's plain but there's so much to the character and the people the around him that is very complex. His struggle to truly fit in as a human is one of my favorite things about him.
I never really enjoyed Superman as a superhero. He is just too... perfect in my way. Every superhero have a weakness, sometimes many. But Superman, it's just Kryptonite. He is too perfect in many ways, it's the classic superhero. He can fly, he can raise cars and buildings, and he is a boaster. So I really dislike Superman and he doesn't deserve to be #3.
He is the best,no doubtV 59 Comments
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.
Without a doubt the most interesting Psychopath in comic book history. His actions are unpredictable, and amazing to witness.
The Joker is Batman's greatest rival. He is dark and crazy. The only character even at his level of awesomeness is Batman. These two should be 1 and 2 respectfully.
Joker is already great HEATH LEDGER made joker even GREAT👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼V 31 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.
He's my favourite,something about him just makes him one of the most special superhero for meV 16 Comments
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.
Awesome character, and Arrow made him even better!
He is lit.V 36 Comments
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!
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
She was created for the fans, by the fans, debuting in Joker's Favor, starting nearly 20 years after everyone else, yet still managing to become one of the most loved comic book characters of all time
YESS shes the best! Better than Catwoman, ivy, and Wonder WomanV 18 Comments
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
Deathstroke is really one awesome character and villain. The thing is don't like though is how his main enemy is a group of teenagers but whatever you know.
Deathstroke has become one of my most favorite super villains because he's like Batman: he doesn't need fancy superpowers to be badass. - Mcgillacuddy
I don’t like Deathstroke so I strongly disagree with him being even before Dick GraysonV 29 Comments
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.
Dick Grayson has been an important and loved character as long a time as characters like Wonder Woman and The Flash have. He's confirmed to be the best acrobat in the D.C. Universe and was even ranked to be a better fighter than Batman himself. He is also one of the only characters to actually grow up. He's been Robin, Nightwing, Agent 37, and even took the role of Batman when Bruce was gone. Dick totally kicks butt, and even though I love other characters like Bruce Wayne and Barry Allen, I think that Dick Grayson deserves to be acknowledged as one of (or the) best character in the D.C. Universe.V 23 Comments
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.
Common she is better than the 9th place hero she deserves more than that she is better than batman and all of them give some credit she is like the only female on the dc you guys are so wrong so so wrong!
I can't believe Wonder Woman is the only girl in the top ten! I mean come on, she has beaten Super Man, has a lasso of truth, and can even impress the dark and sulky Batman!
Erza tatania can beat herV 22 Comments
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 awesome
He already defeated the entire JL in the New 52 (WW, Superman, Aquaman, Cyborg, Flash, Green Lantern and Batman), even Bats said: 'It ended very BADLY'V 12 Comments
Superman shall feel my wrath today for I am ben 10 or am I lex luthor? who cares
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 - Username123
I'm gonna be honest. Aquaman is not my favorites hero on the list. But this is a list of the top CHARACTERS, and what I take that to mean is whose personality make sure for the most interesting solo stories, as well as dynamics while working with or against the other characters on this list. And as far as that goes, the number one spot here should go to Aquaman.
The idea of a hero whose primary loyalty is not to the league is very interesting. It’s been demonstrated multiple times in the comics that he would gladly go to war with Superman himself for the sake of Atlantis. If his city is ever in danger, he would instantly abandon or even go against the other heroes, because he has a responsibility to husband ocean kingdom and all of its inhabitants. There’s plenty more to say about his character, but for the most part, that's why I think Arthur Curry deserves first place on this list.
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'sname
Shazam is duh bezt - The8BitV 2 Comments
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.
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
Should be in the top ten at least!V 7 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!
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 ass
Alfred is awesoemeV 5 Comments
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 robin
I wonder if Dick Grayson fans know that Nightwing is Robin when they voted in this list... - MillieTrina_ProwerV 3 Comments
Darkseid killed batman before and he can do it again
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.

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!
SHE DESERVES HER SPOT! GET OUT BANE!V 3 Comments

My all time favorite dc character.
Female batman right here.

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.
At lest he could be at 23 - Matthew453
She's my favorite superhero. Strong, intelligent, techno wizard... BATGIRL!
Oh come on dc lets get better
New 52 Barbra Gordon all day
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!
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
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
He is my favourite DC character he is epic
i love himV 3 Comments
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
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!
He is so underrated! - Daviddv0601V 1 Comment
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
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
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!
Best DC character of all time. He is a ghost, but a really cool one.
Beast Boy (also known as Garfield Mark Logan) is a fairly developed character, particularly in the original Teen Titans. He may seem to be just a simple comedian, that comic relief guy, as many DC characters tend to be, but little BB is seriously underestimated when it comes to his emotional life. He uses jokes and purposeful mistakes to cover up how tangled up he is on the inside; he isn't as simple as he appears. A character like this deserves a better place among the others in DC -- his development has gone further than quite a few of them. He's no Batman or Wonder Woman or Flash, but he definitely should have a higher placement than where he is now; this kid isn't simple. He's complex, a twisted, knotted pile of wires that can't seem to get his life straight -- in other words, he has to hide it. He thinks the only way to piece his life together is to pretend to be okay; when he's really just a shattered window on the inside -- he's broken. And guess what? That's what makes him ...more
He should be on the top 20s because he is the one with the jokes he is the one of the people to beat trigon beast boy is the best
Why's he at 58? one of my favorite characters.
O love beast boy so much because he can shape shiftV 3 Comments
