Top Ten Most Powerful Superheroes

These are not the best but the ten most powerful super heroes.

The Top Ten

1 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 more.

Let me break this down- If Superman was to hit you with an Infinite Mass punch, his strongest hit, there would be nothing left but a crater. He can move worlds, literally, and once cupped a black hole in his hands. He has died and came back to life stronger. And he becomes a god. (Superman Prime) The big thing a lot of people don't get is that Superman was born without limits under a yellow sun, and he doesn't exactly have to recharge his solar batteries too often. If he was to let go of his own mental blocks, he could (and eventually does) break down the gates of heaven itself. Immensely powerful even before becoming a god, he becomes so powerful that he could survive the end of the multiverse to help The Presence (DCs' representation of the true God) recreate it. If he can survive the end of reality, and then shape and reform it to his will... What chance does anyone have to compare to his power?

Superman is invincible (obviously besides kryptonite) having an unlimited power source from the sun. Goku uses Ki which is Finite. Sure instant transmission is INSTANT, but it requires concentration. If Goku is in the middle of a battle there is no way he could pull it off. Superman can see the Flash moving in speeds much faster than light and still catch him. Superman has kept a miniature black hole in his hands. He can effortlessly sneeze solar systems away (if were doing pre-crisis Superman). I'm not saying Goku isn't amazing but Goku has limits unlike Superman who has none. "Superman is as strong as he needs to be. "

Oh it is true, superman is the immovable object and the unstoppable force, he has been around longer than anybody commenting on this site, superman was created in a time where there was no heroes like him so don't give him flack for being unoriginal, for those who say superman has weaknesses and that makes him less powerful than say Goku or thor, you are wrong, it is known that Kal-Kent, superman millions of years in the future actually became immune to kryptonite, red sun radiation, and magic. Superman even now, has hel black holes and picked up infinite amounts of strength and pre-crisis superman was absolutely insane, capable of destroying anybody o this list, like superboy prime, if superman did not hold back like he does even in fights against villains, he would eventually become to kryptonite and magic, etc. He has even fought magical gods literally taken from myth of greek legend and such which means he can fight magical beings and- He is the limit, because he has no limits, ...more

Go superman

2 Goku Goku Son Goku (Kakarrot) is the main protagonist in Dragon Ball franchise created by Akira Toriyama in 1984. He had many abilities like, super strength, utilization of ki, flight, teleportation, super speed, enhanced reflexes, and Super Saiyan transformation that increase strength, speed, and durability. more.

Goku is the strongest, fastest, and has the most self-control and a fun side compared to other super heroes, if goku's story would have continued he and vegeta would have been able to reach levels far beyond anyone could have ever imagined, when Akira Toriyama made these stories he was thinking far beyond any marvel superhero the powers they have know are greatly exaggerated no offense but read the old marvel, those guys are cream puffs to what they've been blown up to, I mean most of the Z fighters are far beyond any speed or strength that any of the Marvel or DC Heroes could amount to, its true but goku were he is now his body is far harder than any defense type super hero and truthfully goku could flick superman on the forehead and he would end being thrown threw the universe and cutting superman shaped hole through planets that are in the way. Goku is declared a Hero to all those who cry out for peace many times in DBZ, I can understand being a fan of some super hero for a long ...more

Because superman can clearly be defeated by kryptonite. Whereas Goku has no apparent weaknesses, and don't say superman prime would be the top superhero. Since, clearly if he's that powerful then there wouldn't be a point to him being a hero. Hero's need their downsides too. Not to mention Goku at about age 12 could destroy the moon, later when he's in his twenties finds Radditz and he was 3 times stronger then Goku and Piccolo. Goku in his twenties had the power to obliterate the planet. Soon he finds Frieza, which had a power of over 1,000,000. Radditz with a power of 1,000 could move at tremendous speeds but compared to this kind of power, he'd be powerless, even though he could destroy the entire planet and moon at ease. Now with a 1,000,000 power level you could destroy the sun and any planet at a moments notice. When Goku eventually transforms into a super saiyan he surpasses that. Later he can change into light particles and travel at the speed of light. He could also create ...more

I know you think Superman is the strongest of all heroes but he clearly isn't' let me prove it to you. Goku is definitely the strongest superhero out there. First of all instant transmission allows him to travel at 186,000 miles per second. Second he has been training at 100 times the gravity of Earth and can break 100 layers of steel with his 2 fingers. Third he grows stronger after every battle he faces so if superman beat him up to critical condition after he heals up Goku would be twice as strong as superman(which he already is anyway). Fourth Goku has only one weakness which is his heart, he is too soft on his enemies but all that would perish if he ranked up to super saiyan 4 and his weakness would be gone. Fifth the only other weakness Goku ever had was his tail but he trained it and that weakness is also gone. Sixth Goku can turn into super saiyan 4 which times his already enormous power level several times. Seventh Goku has more ki (energy)than the sun so he can destroy it ...more

Goku is stronger then superman he's powerlevel is way beyond supermans

3 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.

2 words "HULK SMASH! "
Nothing is more powerful than the hulk. Nothing/None can overpower him. He leveled the Earth and all the superheros in World War Hulk. Superman has death but, the hulk doesn't. HULK SMASH!

Nobody can stop him, not thor not superman, nobody. He has unlimited strength and could take on dc and marvel universe together, and when he goes on a rampage you better watch out. HULK SMASH

Limitless power equals can't be stopped. Sorry he takes the cake

You can't beat him you just angry and if it look like you are beating him, he will get madder and when he's madder he's stronger.

4 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 more.

Okay, so let me explain it like this. The one above all has 3% and he is the only one here who would be able to kill Thor. BUT! He's not a superhero and therefor doesn't count. For those who says Hulk can overpower Thor With his strength, Your wrong! Thor has unlimited Power from the Tessarac. And Thor could therefor just stab his hammer to the ground and destroy the Earth and Hulk would die eventually because his healing abilities his based on oxygen. REMEMBER! The main reason Stan Lee made Thor was too overpower every superhero there were.
Now how could he kill superman? Simple. Thor has no weaknesses other than physical attacks and ASGARDIAN Magic. The sun would perish in 5 billion years which means Superman doesn't have unlimited energy after (from what the goku vs superman Death Battle says). And Superman could neither kill Thor because he's weak against Magic. And Thor could activate a unlimited powerful magical energy Shield around him wich makes Superman unable to even be ...more

What? WHAT? Thor, god of thunder, guardian of Asgard, is knocked down to second by SUPERMAN? This is just incredibly dumb. Thor is immortal, and could just spin the hammer to open a wormhole to find kryptonite and level off Superman, or just send Superman to somewhere without a yellow sun. You really have to look at ALL the portrayals of Thor, and if you do, it will show you who should be the true victor of this top ten.

Thor should be the second most powerful, and Hulk should be first. Thor can collapse an area and shift the planet out of place. He has lifted the Midgard Serpent, which is said to weigh half as much or just as much as the planet Earth itself, so he lifted between 3.3-6.6 sextillion tons. He can resist the gravemetric pressure equal to the weight of a neutron star. He is unaffected by the sun and has even rested inide of our sun. He can match a savage hulk's strength for an entire hour in a power struggle. He can snap out of Adamantium coils effortlessly and can break out of chains made to withstand the strength of 10 giants. He has knocked Abomination out with a single punch and can survive being crushed by the weight of 20 planets. He can create attacks 1000 times hotter than the sun. He can travel more than 50 times the speed of light, so he can move 9,300,000 miles/second. He can resist mental control from Loki and can transcend the physical realm. He is so powerful that he usually ...more

Guys this isn't even a freckin argument, we all watched ragnarok, and he clearly beat Hulk. In fact if the grandmaster had not shocked thor, there might not be a hulk. Superman stupidly strong to the point of boring, so he don't count.

5 Silver Surfer Silver Surfer The Silver Surfer is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Born Norrin Radd, the Silver Surfer's abilities are given to him through the Power Cosmic. His first appearance was in Fantastic Four #48 in 1966 and was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby.

What? I honestly expected this to be first. But it's not, so let me explain this for you...

1) Hulk.

Come on guys, don't even joke. Silver Surfer has already beaten Hulk, but in case that isn't good enough for you, Hulk's power is that the angrier he gets, the stronger he gets. But oh no! Silver Surfer has dragged Hulk out into space at the speed of light. Hulk is now in space and is dead before he can get angry enough to even battle Silver Surfer. This battle is over before it begins.

2) Thor. This would be the closest battle on the list, because the Silver Surfer gets his power from the power cosmic, which is pretty evenly matched to Mjolnir, Thor's hammer. But Thor would need to hit Surfer with Mjolnir to win, whereas Surfer could just destroy him with his blasts. Of course Thor would block many of these with Mjolnir, but some would eventually land. Thor wouldn't get time to hammer Surfer unconscious (the only way he could win). His time would be taken up ...more

The only one that can take on Galactus (most powerful being of all time in any comic universe), which is primarily because he was given powers from Galactus to do his bidding. Good thing the Silver Surfer realized what he was doing, turned to the hero side, and became the most powerful hero. He can manipulate time, matter, energy, has super-genius level intellect, is 100% indestructible, can travel faster than light, and has several other powers I can't come up with off the top of my head. Goku couldn't hold a torch to his powers. Thor and Spider-Man are my favorites, but I can't deny The Silver Surfer's power. I'd have liked to see him and Thanos go head to head.

In this list of heroes Surfer would destroy them all in 1 min. He fights villains that these other heroes would have to team up to fight just to make it fair... and WINS. Galactus, Thanos, Hulk, he absorbs energy and can do anything he puts his mind to. So while fight Superman if he wants to change Earth's yellow sun red, he can do it. Surfer should be #1 and Batman shouldn't even be on this list. If it was a most popular list than Batman shout be here but this is most powerful and Batman has no powers

it is dog

6 One-Above-All

THE supreme being in the marvel universe. The only one who is truly Omnipotent, Omniscient, etc. He has literally infinite power. He could destroy the entire universe and everything in it, and then make a new one that was the exact opposite from the original one, all just by thinking about it.

There's really nothing to say, it's not even fair to put O-A-A on this list because words can't describe how powerful or amazing or divine he is. An example, O-A-A can make a rectangular circle. Yeah, that's right

So, with all of these other super heroes, we are forgetting one things. They can be killed. They all have a weakness. They all were created. They all have something stronger than them. Except the one-above-all. Because he is god. Comic book god. So pretty much the most badass rendition of god you could think of. Did I mention how he could do anything? "Hey, Goku, you think your stronger than me? " Is what he may say before making Goku never have existed so people have no memory at all of him except for the One-Above-All. - pochnae

His name alone should be enough to prove to you that this guy should much higher.

7 Dr. Manhattan 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.

Dr manhattan can destroy anything with his ability to separate matter he can make whole planets just vanish if he wanted. He also has no compassion which means he can kill entire races with out batting an eye he can also create multiple duplicates of himself and also bring himself back to life he does not understand feelings and therefor cannot create emotional bonds that could possibly be used against him in the watchmen he is shown having a partner that he loves but she is just an aquatence he cannot feel love or hate or happiness he may seem to be in a form of hell but he is oblivious with to it and is just fascinated with matter he can see into his future making him able to change his future how he pleases and can see his past he is indistructable with limitless power and has the ability to do as he pleases he is the best super hero in creation and should be more widely known he cannot be any higher then the top 2 in my eyes he is the top super hero

He has complete control over matter. Can see the past, present, and the future. Matter not being able to be created nor destroyed is an interesting concept to him though not a limitation.

His only weakness is he has surpassed everything and everyone in our solar system; from what we can perceive to what we are not even aware of. He left Earth to create another form of life for Pete's sake.

No one on this list comes even close. With a mere thought and a slight gesture everyone else on this list could disappear, be turned inside out, or converted into snow flakes.

Frankly, I don't even think it's fair to have Dr. M on this list at all.

Dr. Manhattan would be number one or two undoubtedly if he were more well known. He's basically like TOAA but just slowly realizing his infinite power to create and destroy. The only thing that stops him is basically his disconnection from everything. I also have to say that while a lot of people really like Hulk and I love the big green guy myself. All you have to do to defeat him is to teleport him into an absolutely empty region of space. No gravity. Nothing to push / pull against in order to exert his strength on / in / through. He's just be a tiny green angry asteroid thrashing about wildly getting more and more angry. Eventually he'd probably get so angry he would hulk smash himself and create black hole out of himself. Giving him infinite gravity to use to leverage his infinite strength against. Black Hole Hulk would be pretty bad ass.

Should be number one. He could take Superman for sure. - Elijah_Cook

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

Invisibility, impervious shield, can generate any object or form of radiation. (Including kryptonite) Can achieve time travel, travel through space, and jump almost instantaneously anywhere in the universe. Invincibility to intense temperatures, disease, and bacteria. Can distort parts of the body, I.E. make the flashs' head so big he's top heavy and can't move fast. Only weakness is the wearer of the ring itself. These powers are only as intense as the will of the wearer

Superman is almost immune to kryptonite and superman could take the ring off and destroy him. Superman can go into space and take the sun and kill green lantern with it. It is so easy to beat him basically. Whoever said he can't be beaten by superman is wrong people. Superman is like one above all. No not a god but still like one because no one can pick up the sun like him I'm serious. It's just impossible for anyone to do that except one above all.

Green lantern could just think of millions of kryptonite and kill super man instantly and take a bazooka and shoot him and super man will DIE! (this doesn't mean I hate superman) BUT the only weakness about him is that the ring powers run of more faster if he use it too much.

Green Lantern 's ring is the most powerful weapon in the universe. It has no limits and possibly beat any other villain or even superhero.

9 Flash Flash The Flash is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. His first appearance was in October 1956 and was created by Robert Kanigher. His main ability is super speed through the Speed Force and can run at speeds exceeding light.

Flash may run at any speed that he thinks is possible. Which means that he can run any speed. The limit to speed never ends... That means he can reach speeds billions of times the speed of light. He can react to that? Running right past light speed he is already faster than superman's heat vision. He can steal speed leaving the Hulk or Superman motionless... For eternity. Flash can also slow time down so much in his mind to the point to where everything stops. His ability to alter his own perception of time is so great, that if he wishes, the tick between a second can pass for millions of years. (this means if that he can do things in one second that it would take a normal person a million years to do. He can even push this ability to the point, that to him, it's as if the Universe is standing still. It does not truly stand still, it is his own perception of time that seems to stand still, and his body automatically adjusts to his perception, hence, the slower he views the world, the ...more

Barry Allen as the Flash should be ranked #1 in any list involving the most powerful beings. Not only does he have super-speed, but once he reaches terminal velocity, he has shown other incredible powers.

During an attempt to measure his top speed once, he strained every muscle in his body to run at about 10 Roemers, which is 10X the speed of light. It's not just his running that is fast, but everything about him. His hand-eye coordination is second to none, and his reaction time is so quick it allows him to process information fast enough that to him, running at many times the speed of light feels slow. Not only this, but he also immune to any form of telepathy, due to his thoughts racing at such speed that they cannot be controlled. In fact, his mind is so fast, when he taps into the speed force, he thinks so fast that he can see and weigh every possible outcome in a situation in order to decide on the best course of action.

In addition to running and thinking fast, ...more

Flash is THE MOST POWERFUL SUPERHERO EVER. Think about it. He can move so fast that he can travel through time and essentially be in two places at once. He can create an air pocket around himself by vibrating his molecules so he can breathe underwater. He can phase through things like walls and stuff by vibrating to a certain frequency. He can build up enough momentum in his punches to blow someone's head right off, or worse. He can literally move as fast as he wants to. He can move so fast that everyone around him freezes - at least from his point of view - for eternity. His regenerative powers and endurance factor are so high that he essentially can never die. He can get shot in the face three times in a row and (if he didn't dodge the bullets in the first place) heal himself in less than a second. He can be the entire Justice League ON HIS OWN. AND he can be all six of them AT THE SAME TIME. There's a theory out there that Aquaman doesn't even exist - he's just a projection of the ...more

Flash is so fast he can kill anyone with one shot

10 Vegeta Vegeta Vegeta is an anime fictional character from the anime series, Dragon Ball Z, created by Akira Toriyama.

Vegeta is extremely powerful, strong and fast. His capacities are seemingly unlimited: his power as Baby Vegeta was described as "immeasurable" by Old Kai and many times as huge by Krillin, Piccolo and Gohan. Vegeta's power and energy reserves are practically unlimited: when he was a kid he was already capable of destroying entire planets. He should definitely be ranked higher than this. Throughout his life he has shown his nearly infinite super-strength, power and speed in countless battles. After becoming a supersayan he was able to effortlessly defeat Android 19 who was able to match Goku SSJ who was so powerful that his power could light the entire Universe ( according to King Kai). Everyone should watch his battles: Vegeta himself says that him and Goku will need an entire planet for their next battle. Vegeta can move at a speed nearly infinitely greater then light itself: Raditz with power level of 1200 could move faster then light. What can then be expected by Vegeta who when ...more

He and Goku always compete and he should be #2 on this ist if Goku is #1. Vote for Vegeta!

If Goku is first, the Vegeta should be second. I mean it is pretty clear Goku is stronger, because he is the main character and due to this the plot played out with him being the superior warrior, but Vegeta was just inches away from Goku's level. If Goku was second, the Vegeta would deserve to have been third. My point is, they are so close in power, it makes no sense that any other heroes could have powers between their's, no matter what place Goku is in, Vegeta should be right after. Second strongest hero ever created, and six spaces away on this list from the strongest?

Near goku but he should not be on this list because he is a anti hero

The Contenders

11 Phoenix/Dark Jean Grey Phoenix/Dark Jean Grey

Unlike most superheroes she has no weakness and in a darker form she does not care for any allowing no emotional weakness her one problem is that her power can control her but based on a literal sense of the question she is the most powerful

This woman should be in top 3. She can destroy all the planets and galaxies, she can control your mind and reality. Not to mention super powerful telekinesis - Magnolia

She is a badass I think only 4 superheroes stand a chance in a fight against Superman would BE Jean Grey/Phoenix, the Hulk, Captain Marvel and ( MY favorite ) the wolverine(and I don't care about Batman because he only won because OF his gadgets not his Pure strength so I don't Talk about superheroes that are "Super" because OF their gadgets)

Se should be higher she can literally destroy anyone just by thinking it

12 Gogeta Gogeta

Actually Gogeta is the most powerful superhero creation, even though he is the product of the fusion of two entities (Goku and Vegeta). Adding Dragon Ball Z characters overshadow the other superheros by a considerable margin. Sorry Superman, but you are not the most powerful superhero. This list should actually look like this if you include the MAJOR/MAIN DBZ characters: 1. Gogeta/Vegito 3. Goku 4. Vegeta 5. Superman 6. Hulk and the rest is debatable with Naruto characters closely behind.

Gogeta should be first then goku, vegeta, gohan, gotenks, goten and trunks are tied the rest you decide but piccilo should be one of them.

Because Goku is the strongest then vegeta is the 9th strongest then there combine powers that the strongest

Go beta is a combination of goku and vegeta even alone goku can defeat superman so the combination of these should to be on the top they are the best with great speed power special attacks teleportation powers.

13 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.

Whoever doesn't vote for Batman is the world's biggest idiot. Come on he's the only person to take on Superman and WIN, not just draw, but WIN. Not only that but if you've seen Superman/Batman: Apocalypse then you'd know that Batman's badass... Which superhero (or villain) do you know of that has the balls to threaten Darkseid ("let go of the girl (Supergirl) or I blow up Apokilips"). No one has the balls to do that. Let's not forget that in JL Doom he had contingency plans for every leaguer... No one can say that they can take on the entire JL and win, but he can if his plans in JL Doom are anything to talk about. Batman is the best... Period!

"Whoever doesn't vote for Batman is the world's biggest idiot" Oh God, it's another one of these people, listen, he is the best superhero but he is definitely not the most powerful and you can't just call someone "the world's biggest idiot" for not agreeing with you. - PeeledBanana

Batman can take em all out with his brain.
His only downfall in a poll like this, is that its gonna be about the power, and of course we all know one flick from the hulk would kill him 10 ten times over, but, that's because he is JUST a man. No other character that's JUST a man would of fought Superman and WON, lt alone survived it. So keep on voting for "The Dark Knight" because he is THE MAN.

Batman can outsmart everyone on this list the only challenge for brains would be iron man. Hulk, Goku, and Thor are absolute buffoons. Those three have barely enough wit to out smart a nail, so instead of outsmarting the nail and hurting their pebble sized brains of theirs, they would rather just smash the nail.and iron man's only skill in fighting is hitting and those repulser blasts. All batman would have to do is grab a couple of those sticky spheres that disable any technology (mentioned by the people of screw attack.) and batman a only challenge might be because of what he is made of is the silver surfer. And seriously Goku are you kidding I'm sorry but I live in America. Where a superhero, is defined as badass. And also I apologize again. But you are not a superhero if you are not 1) from marvel or DC comics. Or 2) something that people in America give a damn about. And if you don't agree, you can kiss both sides of my American ass. And that's final.

Brains beat brawn *says it all*

15 Sentry

Sentry is the strongest superhero by far. His powers derive from The One Above All himself, most powerful entity in marvel and nothing comes close to it in dc comics. He can unleash the power of "one million suns" though he always holds back his full power potential unless he is forced to. His one weakness is his mind. Robert Reynolds, his human identity, is schizophrenic and is afraid of the world. Even when he is transformed into Sentry, he is not (totally) mentally stable thus allowing him to be manipulated.

I'm just going to list Sentry's powers

1. Molecule Manipulation (everything is Made up of molecules)
2. Super Strength
3. Super Speed
4. Flight
5. Super Durability
6. Nigh Invulnerability
7. Extreme Regeneration
8. Immortality
9. Shape shifting
10. Enhanced Vision
11. Enhanced Hearing
12. Aura Detection
13. Force Fields
14. Teleportation
15. Invisibility
16. Telepathy
17. Empathy
18. Energy Emission
19. Energy Absorption
20. Energy Manipulation
21. Weather Manipulation
22. Healing
23. Resurrection
24. Life Creation
25. Constructs
26. Intangibility
27. Power Sharing

Look at this list and tell me that he isn't the strongest being ever "created".

This character can travel to the sun in 2 seconds. That's 600 times for every seven times the flash does it he also has the power of a million exploding Sun's as if speed wasn't overpowered enough they added a power where this character can't be in the same dimension without wiping everything from existence his only flaw is he is psyco and created his own arch enemy

He is the strongest superhero I ever heard of

16 Galactus Galactus Galactus is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Formerly a mortal man, Galactus is a cosmic entity who originally consumed planets to sustain his life force, and serves a functional role in the upkeep of the primary Marvel continuity.

Galactus is not a hero Ugh idiots.

Come on! He eats planets! - DunnaNunnaBatman

I feel like this list is now "top ten most powerful comic book characters with the bad guys at a slight disadvantage since they aren't actually mentioned in the original title of this list".

This list is pretty much wrong. It should be like this
#1 Thor
#2 Superman
#3 Goku
#4 Silver Surfer
#5 Flash
#6 Iron Man
#7 Dr Manhattan
#8 Green Lantern
#9 Batman
#10 Phoenix
And also there should not be Galactus as he is a villain it is list of Superheroes

17 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 more.

Iron Man's armor possessed standard powers, which he still kept, and always upgrades them. The more modern armors enable him to lift over 82 tons, thought his Hulk buster armors can lift over 200 tons. He is able to fly at supersonic speeds of over Mach 8, and can hover in place. He also possesses remarkable durability, and can withstand the elements of a gamma bomb. His armors also possess powerful armor plating, which greatly increase durability.

Tony can generate weaponry on either his gauntlets, shoulders, back, helmet, and legs. He can make force fields, which he could use to protect allies and himself. Iron Man can control all forms of energy, from kinetic to solar. Tony possesses superhuman speed by jet-propelled roller skates.

While he is most definitely not the strongest hero on the list, he has always been able to talk his way out of situations. Any situation he was unable to talk himself out of, he would build his way out instead. He has already beaten the Hulk with his Hulkbuster Suit. He can most likely create suits that would counter each heroes abilities so he could win. He could probably buy kryptonite from somewhere to deal with Superman. I don't remember what it is called, but there is some type of metal that cancels out the flash's speed. If he can buy that, flash is done. The only problem I see would be the DBZ verse as anyone there would unfortunately destroy him without a second thought. They did beat cell after all, who is (most likely) stronger then Iron Man. Galactus and the one above all would also not even have to think about destroying him. Pretty much anyone that doesn't originate on earth (excluding superman) could kill iron man in an instant.

He should be at the first, because he don't have any superpowers he made himself as superhero. He has the lasers which can cut any thing. He can fly as fast as supersonic missile. He can beat any superhero in the whole universe.

Let me just give you a quick run through of iron mans strongest suits.

1.The God Killer. So all you guys are going to say tony can't use his suit because he isn't a real stark. But tony has stated he still has access to this suit so now let's talk about how strong this suit really is. So this suit was made to kill ALL of the celestials not 1 all of them. Something you probably don't know is only 3 celestials can easily overpower galactus so imagine what else it can destroy.

18 Captain Marvel Captain Marvel

Whoever wrote the last comment is dumb captain marvel is billy Batson. Not Steve Rodgers that's captain America. But captain marvel is still one of the best with most of superman's powers plus magic

This man should be above superman. On par with superman in everything. But, had the magic of the gods. Superman is vulnerable to magic and kryptonite. Shazam would honestly win. But, the writers won't allow it. Because, superman is THE poster boy for superheroes.

Captain marvel has the combined powers of five gods added to the wisdom of Solomon. He is number one. Cannot be hurt or killed. Stronger than superman. Faster than the flash. Smarter than reed Richards. He has the most power.

He is the most powerful of them all!
With the same powers as superman and he can even beat superman to the ground since he's got magic

19 Deadpool Deadpool Deadpool is a fictional antihero created by Marvel who appears in their comics. Deadpool's first appearance was in New Mutants #98 by Rob Liefeld and Fabian Nicieza in February of 1991. His powers include self-healing and super strength. He is regarded as one of the funniest characters in comics due more.

He's been cursed to never be able to die by Thanos, on top of his super fast healing factor that tops all other weapon x people. But what really gives him the edge above all others on this list is his crazy ideas. Where Batman and Dr Manhattan have brains and genius intelligence, Deadpool has genius insanity. With his crazy ideas and reality manipulation he can come up with the most inventive ways to do anything. As long as he has an ounce of motivation to do something he can make it happen, with his magic satchel ( a term for where characters can pull stuff out of nowhere, mostly seen in cartoons like SpongeBob and stuff) he can literally do the impossible simply because people deem it impossible.

Teleporting, a healing factor that surpasses wolverine, mastery of any weapons he uses, his insanity makes him unpredictable, and he treats the fourth wall like a step child!

He is in a relationship with death. He has a faster healing factor than wolverine. His soul cannot be burned by ghost rider as his half soul is with Satan a, daughter of Satan even his soul regenerates has carbonation swords which can nullify healing factor. Married tto the Queen of monsters. Defeated cap America, wolverine, spiderman, taskmaster in hand to hand combat and killed the entire marvel universe. Rival against thanos. Banned from hell and cursed with life by thanos. This sums it all he is immortal

He can literally come out of his comic and just erase everyone else

20 Living Tribunal

So lets say your an employee that has minor responsibilities but you have a boss that can do whatever he wants this is the comparison of the living tribunal to One-Above-All

The only being to defeat THANOS with the infinity gauntlet with a snap of a finger he is the strongest entity in the marvel universe

Most power person on this list, but not necessarily a hero.

21 Doomsday Doomsday Doomsday is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, usually depicted as an adversary of Superman.

Are you kidding me?! Where the hell is doomsday? Killer of the man of steel and whatever kills him he is immortal too! End of story. Goku or anyone on this list kills him he automatically becomes stronger being impervious to any form of energy or damage dealt to him during battle and causing death (which is near impossible) he has unlimited strength. He doesn't eat, sleep or breath which means he has potentionally unlimited stamina also being able to fight superman for a full day and not breaking a sweat. he's been known to take on abilities on heros and villains just by simple contact of skin, his bones can cut through supermans skin with ease. Killer of beings like darkseid & Imperiex! A blast of energy that wiped out one third of a planet reduced doomsday to ash and later regenerated STILL and came back to finish the job. He is beyond life or death being millions of years old, killed by Gods, Super heroes, villains, beings that could alter reality with a blink of an eye and STILL ...more

Doomsday is by far the greatest. He killed superman destroyed Galaxies and still pose a threat to all hero's. He is so strong that it took the entire justice League to match up with the power of Doomsday and still couldn't kill him but only trap it. He is an immune God.

Doomsday should be number5 he is a monster that can go toe to toe and fight superman without kryptonite and fight him until he and superman died even if someone beat him once they can't do it again

Domsday kill Superman.Why not is number one.

22 Martian Manhunter Martian Manhunter

How is this guy not number one? First of all, Superman, the current number one, once stated that the Manhunter was the strongest being on the face of DC Earth, that he could count on one hand the beings he would be afraid to challenge in the universe and that J'onn was one of them! Secondly, the GUARDIANS OF THE Universe, the guys that can destroy planets with a thought, gave the Martians their weakness because they were SCARED of the Martians' potential! Sure, he's weak to fire, but what's to stop him from mind-f***ing his attacker? Or ripping the guy apart with his telekinesis? Or phasing his hand through the villain's head? Or speedblitzing him? Etc, etc, etc. There's a reason he's Mars's sole survivor. There's a reason he's known as the Swiss Army Knife of superheroes. This man is Superman + a bazillion other powers. Seriously, look him up. There's to many abilities of his to fit into this one paragraph.

He is stronger than Superman in the New 52 but I don't remember Superman saying MM was stronger in any pre-52 continuity correct me if I'm wrong - 9713524179

Manhunter has so many powers, he probably could inflict the weakness of any superhero since he has that power. He could destroy Hulk and Superman with telekinesis and psionic blasts. I'm pretty sure his strength rivals Thor's too and if he took away his hammer, he would defeat him. Surfer would loose to him but it would be a close fight.

Teleportation, invincibility, telekinesis, flight, strength, speed, shape-shifting, able to phase through objects, invisibility, heat vision, ability to absorb any force against him. He's basically superman with more diversity.

29? You should better look his full potencial, Martians were the most feared race, and J'onn actually doesn't have fear of fire, he's inmune, he scanned all Earth minds without much effort (forget Kingdom Come and his poor treatment to MM), he was able to cure Joker with a simple order and many other feats, plus his powers are enormous (he can replicate a building with his shapeshifting abilities)

23 The Beyonder

These people are stupid trying to move him to NUMBER 23!

He is the second most powerful marvel character between once above all and the living tribunal - Aleksei

How is a being that was his own dimension, this far down on the list. Iron Man is above him? Seriously?

He's definitely beyond most superheroes...

He can't get killed he should be first

He can't die, is stronger than superman, and has no weaknesses except only being able to fight against evil... Should be top 5.

Ghost rider is most powerful superhero

He deserves 1!... He is most badass marvel character... He can create Hellfire that burns soul

26 SSJ4 Gogeta

SSJ4 Gogeta is the most powerful warrior in the DB Universe: he can punch Superman so fast that he want even see him and he can move faster then Flash. His strength, speed and power practically know no limits or boundaries being those of Goku and Vegeta multiplied.

Flash doesn't have a speed limit so no. Nobody can move faster than Flash.

Ssj4 gogeta should be number one his goku and vegeta he trap omega shenron without trying he could beat them blind folded and with his hands tired behinde his back

Gogeta is a god he should be #1

The ssj4 is the evil side of goku hence goku cannot spare his enemy due to his enomous power levels.

27 Vegito Vegito

Come on, Vegito is the fusion of Goku and Vegeta. Both highly powerful, when combined nearly invincible. Gogeta is a bit less powerful, due to the fusion dance being less efficient than the fusion ear rings. So Vegito would be more powerful than Gogeta, Goku, and Vegeta.

Vegito could easily kill superman and beat gogeta.

Why Not Vegito is Number 3.He is powerful as Gogeta and Kill or Destroy Superman

He should be number 1

28 Doctor Strange Doctor Strange Doctor Stephen Vincent Strange, best known under his alias Doctor Strange, is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.

Said to be by far the most powerful humanoid in the universe. Can destroy mountains or entire planets with a simple energy blast, he's even destroyed an entire dimension, or can hold a planet together. Once reaching a level where releases of energy would unconsciously destroy galaxies. Has control over time, he once froze an entire planet in time, but can reverse time or move someone forward like when he turned a young Ancient One (conjured by Eternity) into an old man. Defeated the likes of Death herself, the reality destroying Shuma-Gorath in his own dimension, etc. Can call upon some of most powerful beings in existence for a power boost, or can outright absorb/steal the power from other including cosmic entities. His magic has virtually no limits. Then there's black magic, which he rarely used (prior to becoming Sorceror Supreme) and gave up using it entirely after beating Shuma-Gorath (the battles with him and his lieutenants being his only real showing of what he can do, cutting ...more

Beats a cosmic entity on regular basis.

Really! He should be in top 10. He has fought God's and can crush a human with a twitch of his finger. He is not called the sorcerer supreme for nothing!

He can control time so he is immortal and his agic powers are epic I am just waiting to see him in AVENGERS:INFINITY WAR!

Spiderman has spider senses and strong powers and other stuff most powerful is his sticky web tricks. He also can punch through batmans armor ok.

He is the best superhero because he did not use any gadget accept the webshooters

Spider Man is amazing! He can attach to anything with his webs and is clearly on of the most amazing superheroes

East or west spidey is the best

He's a god the god why is he not number one?

31 Wonder Woman Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman is the best. Once I was watching a cartoon, Wonder Woman could beat FOUR strong women. So I think wonder woman should be the third strongest hero.

Much stronger than anyone else on this list!

Wonder Woman should be in the Top 10! Next to Superman!

She's supposed 2 b number 10

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

Captain America is not the strongest superhero, he can't freeze time use laser vision or even fly, but by far he is the most respectable hero out there and you can't say anything bad about him. He has one quality though that only a few other heros posses, leadership.

He is the definition of a true hero! Unlike the majority of people on this list, the Cap wasn't born with his amazing gift... Instead it was given to him because of his beliefs and his values! Not only does he excel in personal traits but he has gone head to head with the Hulk and Thor!

Captain America is one of the most humble superheroes out there! He is the real definition of a hero he has patriotism and class. He is the most realistic because I mean have you see Chris Evans he's pretty much already Captain America. It's not strength that makes Captain America it's spirit.

Captain American is a coolest superhero I ever seen he should be number 7 because
He beat the iron man and he stop Thor and
He stop a helicopter. he take Thor's hammer. In civil war he almost beat iron man
He is the captain of avengers.

33 Saitama Saitama Saitama is the main protagonist of the webcomic and anime series One Punch Man, who could easily destroy a continent with one punch. He is bored with his extreme power. He is registered with the Heroes Association as a C-Class Superhero and is tasked to defend Z-City against Mysterious Beings.

He's strong but characters like superman and flash would smash him. I will explain. One punch is what it would take to defeat somebody but not superman, well not if he has the power of the sun with him anyway. He would definitely not be able to land a punch on superman or flash because of their amazing speed stats. Superman would kick saitamas ass. Green lantern would probably just trap him in a shield box and throw him into space and make sure he stays up there. Saitama may be powerful but he's no superman

Only #37? The dude punched a thousand-mile wake in the clouds from the ground. He's one-shot villains over 70-times his size. He jumped all the way to the frigging MOON. I rest my case.

One punch man is BY FAR the strongest hero, he actually has unlimited power and balance his strength against whoever he fights

Him being hilariously the most powerful is the entire point of his character, so it’s insane that he’s this far down the list. Him being physically the best despite his looks is his entire point and joke- the only ones who could begin to match up to him would be high level reality-warpers.

Come on guys this one can't die


He is great, he can not die... I love him, just great, he looks great, he is most most powerful superhero, actualy, he is best in the world for fighting and action, his blade are too good, his best name is logan, do not challange him...

He is a GREAT hero! He is amazing! And I am sure he died the most tragic death. He is a human not a GOD like superman. He has emotions not like Dr.Manhattan.
He doesn"t know magic like Dr.Strange. He cannot destroy entire planets but he can care and love for somebody. He is the most tragic and GREATEST, not a superhero but a HUMAN.

38 Invisible Woman Invisible Woman Invisible Woman is a female superhero who is a part of Marvel's Fantastic Four. Her powers include invisibility, cosmic rays, invisible force field, and more.

She can destroy you from the inside but doesn't do it because she is a good person. Her force fields can hold back any character even a pissed of hulk.

Masturbated to this like 4 times now.

I have a boner

Whike holding back she turn of the hulk lungs and thus knocking him out. It was stated that if She wanted to she cold have ended his life.

39 Gotenks Gotenks

Gotenks is one of the most powerful super heroes ever he is a fusion of goten and trunks and he became super saiyan 3 before he was even ten he could have killed majin buu but he talks to much and kept on trying to make the battle more interesting but the fusion failed. But he still is extremely powerful. Vote for gotenks.

40 Superman Prime

He is supposed to be the top strongest hero because he has no weaknesses which simply means he can't die he is just a god I don't think any one will ever get maybe because people were not alive to see the type of super hero he is but anyways he is supposed to be the strongest super hero

If you were to take superman and make him immortal with more power, you'd end up with basically the strongest superhero out there.

Did everyone forget about him? Seriously, he's like a God at this point, I'm serious.

He can beat any superhero even spectre hulk thor and dr manhattan.

Trunks is the son of vegeta just like goten trunks became a super saiyan when he was really young he rocks and he should definitely be on this list.

He is a friend of goku

44 Superman X (Kel-El)

I think he can beat the crap out of the original superman since he is not weakened by Kryptonite.

He is the best he has all supermans power and can case his enemies with Kriptonite and he is stronger and has more powers

My superhero

Fools it is not spelt kriptonite it's kryptonite

45 Spawn Spawn

I mean he banished God from ever touching earth, then recreated in his own image.

The strongest hero of all time

Spawn will murder Goku with no problem. No hero or villain can stand up to Spawn's power. He can change into any one and his demonic powers are unmatched.

Seriously spawn beat God and the Devil and then put them in time out. Are you kidding me.. 47! you best move him on up.
