Best DC Comics Characters

The Top Ten

1 Batman Batman aka Bruce Wayne is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. The character was created by artist Bob Kane and writer Bill Finger, and first appeared in Detective Comics #27. In film, he has been portrayed by Lewis Wilson, Robert Lowery, Adam West, Michael ...read more.

Batman is amazing

I simply love everything abt this Magnificent Hero

bets

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.

2 The Flash The Flash is the name of several superheroes appearing in comic books published by DC Comics. Created by writer Gardner Fox and artist Harry Lampert, the original Flash first appeared in Flash Comics #1.

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 so fast. I think he should run up to #2. that was SO cringy.

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.

3 Superman Superman is a comic character. And probably the first powerful superhero in the fictional world. The character was created by writer Jerry Siegel and artist Joe Shuster, high school students living in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1933. It was published by DC comics. The first animated superhero movie was superman. ...read more.

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.

Bat man killed him dam it! - mikenike87

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.

4 The Joker The Joker is a fictional super villain created by Bill Finger, Bob Kane, and Jerry Robinson who first appeared in the debut issue of the comic book Batman (April 25, 1940) published by DC Comics. Credit for the Joker's creation is disputed; Kane and Robinson claimed responsibility for the Joker's design, ...read more.

Probably the only villian who was loved more than the hero.

Best villian

Just, THE BEST!

How are Batman, Superman and the Flash, above Joker?!

5 Green Lantern Green Lantern is the name of a number of superheroes appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics.

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 situation

6 Wonder Woman Wonder Woman is a fictional superhero created by William Moulton Marston and Harry G. Peter, appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. The character is a founding member of the Justice League, a goddess, and Ambassador-at-Large of the Amazon people. In her homeland, the island nation ...read more.

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.

7 Harley Quinn Harley Quinn is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly as a sidekick of the Joker.

Its cool how she tops all the superheros love ya girl - Izalien

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!

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

8 Green Arrow Green Arrow is a fictional superhero who appears in comic books published by DC Comics. Created by Morton Weisinger and designed by George Papp, he first appeared in More Fun Comics #73 in November 1941. His real name is Oliver Queen, a billionaire businessman and owner of Queen Industries, also a well-known ...read more.

Just a good hero the weakest hero in this list though

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

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.

He is one of my favorite characters

9 Deathstroke Deathstroke is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. The character was created by Marv Wolfman and George Perez. He is a mercenary and assassin who first appeared in The New Teen Titans #2.

coolest

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

10 Martian Manhunter The Martian Manhunter is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. Created by writer Joseph Samachson and designed by artist Joe Certa, the character first appeared in the story "The Manhunter from Mars" in Detective Comics #225.

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 awesome

The Contenders

11 Nightwing Dick Grayson is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly in association with Batman.

Very cool better than his robin

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

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..

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.

12 Lex Luthor Alexander "Lex" Luthor is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics.

He killed Superman

Superman shall feel my wrath today for I am ben 10 or am I lex luthor? who cares

13 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.

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 - Username123

14 Shazam Captain Marvel, also known as Shazam, is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. Artist C. C. Beck and writer Bill Parker created the character in 1939. Captain Marvel first appeared in Whiz Comics #2, published by Fawcett Comics.

I love how he is actually just a kid

Cool and funny

He is the most powerful but not as powerful as dark side

Isn't shazam a music thing?

15 Scarecrow The Scarecrow is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly as an adversary of the superhero Batman.

Agree, Scarecrow deserves better. - CedreticFomento

Really? Scarecrow, one of the best Batman villians is only at 17?

16 Raven Raven is a fictional superheroine appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. The character first appeared in a special insert in DC Comics Presents #26, and was created by writer Marv Wolfman and artist George PΓ©rez.

She is the best most powerful

She can literally banish and possess most people on this list!

Best Titan
Best Heroine of DC
She is cool, special ( Demon-human hybird) and powerful

My all time favorite dc character.

17 Alfred Pennyworth Alfred Thaddeus Crane Pennyworth is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, most commonly in association with Batman.

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 ass

18 Catwoman Catwoman is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly in association with the superhero Batman. ...read more.

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!

MEOW!

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!

19 Rorschach Rorschach is a fictional anti-hero who appears in American comic books published by DC Comics. He first debuted in the graphic novel Watchmen, published from 1986-1987. Rorschach was created by writer Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons.

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 him

20 Riddler The Riddler is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly as an adversary of the superhero Batman.

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.

21 Robin Robin is the name of several fictional superheroes appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. The character was originally created by Bob Kane, Bill Finger, and Jerry Robinson, to serve as a junior counterpart to the superhero Batman.

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 robin

22 Zatanna Zatanna Zatara is a fictional character, a comic book superheroine in the DC Comics universe. Created by writer Gardner Fox and artist Murphy Anderson, Zatanna first appeared in Hawkman #4.

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!

COOL

23 Darkseid Darkseid is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics.

26 Hawkman Hawkman is a fictional superhero who appears in American comic books published by DC Comics. Created by writer Gardner Fox and artist Dennis Neville, the original Hawkman first appeared in Flash Comics #1, published by All-American Publications in 1940.

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?

27 Supergirl Supergirl is the superhero name of Kara Zor-El, cousin to Superman. She was created by writer Otto Binder and designed by artist Al Plastino in 1959, and she first appeared in Action Comics, in whose first issue Superman himself was introduced. ...read more.

WHY IS SHE NOT NUMBER ONE?!?! :0

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

Cool

28 Booster Gold Booster Gold is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. Created by Dan Jurgens, the character first appeared in Booster Gold #1 and has been a member of the Justice League.

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.

29 Red Hood The Red Hood is an alias used by multiple fictional characters and a criminal organization appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics.

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

Have a red mask is cool

30 Deadshot Deadshot is a fictional character who appears in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly as an adversary of Batman . He has traditionally been portrayed as a supervillain, but has more recently taken the role of an antihero .

At lest he could be at 23 - Matthew453

31 Batgirl Batgirl is the name of several fictional superheroes appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, depicted as female counterparts to the superhero Batman.

32 Larfleeze Agent Orange is a fictional comic book supervillain appearing in books published by DC Comics, usually as an antagonist in books featuring Green Lantern and the Green Lantern Corps.

What's mine is mine
and mine and mine,
mine and mine and mine

33 Hawkgirl
34 Dr. Fate

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!

35 Atom

Who han I like the wepsite but he must be in top 15

Atom is awesome and could save the day any day! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰

37 Nekron Nekron is a comic book supervillain appearing in books published by DC Comics, specifically those related to Green Lantern.
38 Bane Bane is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly as an adversary of the superhero Batman.

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!

39 Starfire Starfire is the name of several fictional comic book characters appearing in books published by DC Comics.

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

40 Cyborg

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

41 Bizarro Bizarro is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. The character was created by writer Otto Binder and artist George Papp as a "mirror image" of Superman and first appeared in Superboy #68.

43 Dr. Manhattan Doctor Manhattan is a fictional character who appears in American comic books published by DC Comics. He debuted in the graphic novel miniseries Watchmen, published in 1986 and 1987. Doctor Manhattan was created by writer Alan Moore with artist Dave Gibbons.

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!

44 Blue Beetle Blue Beetle is the name of three fictional superheroes who appear in a number of American comic books published by a variety of companies since 1939.

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! πŸ˜‰

45 Tim Drake

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
