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 Spider-Man Spider-Man Spider-Man is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics existing in its shared universe.

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.

2 Batman Batman Batman 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.

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.

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.The ...read more.

When you think of superheroes, you think of Superman. The first DC/Marvel Hero, created about 75 years ago, he is simply famous and has to be number 1

Super its in the name superman was the first superheo ever created

4 Wonder Woman Wonder Woman

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.

5 Hulk Hulk The Hulk is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, and first appeared in The Incredible Hulk #1.

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

6 Captain America Captain America Captain America is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.

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.

7 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

8 The Flash (Barry Allen) The Flash (Barry Allen)

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.

9 Thor Thor Thor is a fictional superhero appearing in 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 manipulation ...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.

10 Aquaman 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.

The Contenders

11 Green Lantern (Hal Jordan)

Green Lanterns are awesome. So is Hal Jordan. He's got a great personality, the coolest weapon, the list goes on.

12 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.
