Top 10 Most Iconic DC and Marvel Superheroes

Here is a list of my top 10 most iconic superheroes, either DC or Marvel. Not by popularity, this list contains mainly famous and iconic superheroes. Enjoy!

The Top Ten

1 Batman 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 the greatest and most well rounded superhero

Two words "He's BATMAN"

He's Batman.he's been around since 1939.If you ask a kid names of any 3 supers the first names to pop up would be Batman,Spiderman and Superman.He has the best movies,games,butler,character development without any superpowers.He is the world's greatest detective

Batman is probably the most popular superhero ever. Also created about 75 years ago, he has no powers, the greatest villains, most movies (i think) and his butler, Alfred. :p Of course he's high on this list.

2 Spider-Man 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 ...read more.

Spider-Man is able to present himself as a witty superhero that not only relies on his serendipitous spider-like powers but also on his sheer intelligence while in combat; as Peter Parker, he usually reflects selfless morals and virtues, and he presents his audience with relatable situations for all ages, ranging from simply submitting homework on time to encountering a now-changed former school bully. Besides providing one of the most iconic superhero origins, the Spider-Man comics also offer the most interesting, multifaceted villains, which include the power-hungry Norman Osborne/Green Goblin, vengeful Eddie Brock/Venom, and insanely bloodthirsty Carnage. Therefore, Spider-Man is arguably the most iconic superhero of all time.

Does whatever a spider can

It was really hard for me to decide between Spiderman and the Superhero at number four, who to put up higher. I eventually settled with Spiderman. Why? He's a crowd favourite, kid friendly, understandable because he's a teenager, and pretty cool powers. When he first debuted in Amazing Fantasy, the cover image is arguably the most famous Comic Book Cover of all time.

Spiderman feels like he's always been there.

3 Superman 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.

4 Iron Man 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 ...read more.

As stated above, it was hard to decide who would be rated higher on this list: Iron Man or Spiderman. But I found that Spiderman is more iconic. Iron Man is an amazing hero, he has an awesome suit, correction, suits. Part of the famous Avengers, and has hogged three movies to himself in the MCU, he's up high

5 Captain America 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 ...read more.

Now, some of you might be thinking, "What? Iron Man is above Cap? " Well, Iron Man is more iconic. Although in my opinion Cap is cooler, I believe Iron Man has a stronger fan base. Steve Rogers is a skinny man, and pretty much useless to the army; but a super-soldier project turns him into a practically invincible soldier. Although he may seem weak, he has one of the most tactical minds, and he deserves number five.

6 Wonder Woman 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.

Although she has a very low fan base, she is very iconic. The highest female on this list, although she hasn't had a proper movie to herself, she is still very iconic and deserves number 7.

7 Hulk 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.

HULK, SMASH! Hulk is awesome, he is super strong, big, green, and so on. As portrayed in the Incredible Hulk, (2008) Bruce Banner and the hulk are very different. Although that movie wasn't a total success, Hulk went on to be one of my favourite superheros

8 Wolverine 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.
9 The Flash (Barry Allen) The Flash (Barry Allen) 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's speed is what makes him so cool. He's my favourite superhero, he has the best T.V. show EVER, he has heaps of cool villains, and Barry/Eddie/Iris triangle was very interesting in the first season of the Flash.

10 Thor 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 ...read more.

The asgardian only just slides in at number 10; I would of liked to put in Robin, Black Widow or Wolverine, but they didn't make it. Although I'm not a fan of Thor at all, it was interesting for Marvel to introduce a Norse God into their lineup.
