Strongest Marvel and DC Comic Characters

And I mean, physical strength and hand to hand combat. No flying. Just pure wrestling.
The Top Ten
1 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.

Haha I'm gonna go ahead and take that guy's comment on The Hulk and turn it on him.

Let's talk about Superman's heat vision.

Sure, it gives off gamma rays, yup. Now, the real question is, can The Hulk stand in the core of the sun without burning up? I don't think so. It is plausible that Superman's heat vision can go to as hot as he would want (most likely hotter than the core of the sun itself) it to get until the solar energy was drained inside him.

Next! Hulk can lift 100 tons. Amazing. That's an amazing base strength level. Superman's base is 200 quintillion tons. Now, you might say, that's All-Star Superman and "it doesn't count". Then, let's take the Gray Hulk out of the equation as well, hence 0 Hulk intelligence put up against Superman's brain which processes... Thousands of times faster than a normal human. So, stripped down to basics, Superman can move planets, while the Hulk can lift 100 tons. Damn, that's a lot of blue whales.

The next ...more

Before The Hulk can get pissed off, Superman just gonna use his super-speed and hit him a hundred times then hold his leg and spin him at the speed of light or sound and leave him facing up. With all the strength of Superman, The Hulk is just gonna reach Moon. Then Superman will come at light speed and again hit him with full strength. When he will reach Venus, then Hulk will get pissed off but Superman is just very fast and again hit him with full strength at full speed. When he will reach Mercury, again hit him at full speed but now at different direction. Then The Hulk will reach Sun at its surface. I don't think Hulk is gonna survive at the surface of Sun cause the temperature is about 5500 Celsius. If he is gonna survive then Superman will land at full speed with the gravitational force of the Sun very much higher than Earth's. Then he will crush him and he will get extra strength, speed and all that because of the Sun. Superman will send The Hulk in the core of the Sun with only ...more

Comparing Invincible super heroes and villains is not a good idea. It is true that Superman has beat Hulk, and Hulk beat Superman. Surprising Doomsday only has 3 percent, even though he has killed Superman and keeps coming back stronger and stronger, he got so strong that Superman had to time travel to the end of time and leave Doomsday there to prevent him from causing further chaos. I don't believe that Hulk is the strongest because I believe that there is a limit to how much anger one person can have there for I am voting for Superman and Doomsday. Doomsday 4 times though since he is stronger.

Strength - His strength is virtually limitless due to the sun's radiation. It has been shown that Superman can lift 1,000,000 tons with ease. He has been able to benchpress the Earth, which weights 6 sextillion tons, for five days straight.

Invulnerability - He has taken a blast equal to one million nuclear warheads and stayed conscious. He's traveled through our sun and through Krypton's red sun unharmed. He's been able to take 100,000,000 degrees of Fahrenheit. He's survived the impact of ten supernovas exploding in his face. He was able to withstand a sun exploding in a solar system, destroying everything in the solar system but still staying conscious.

Speed - He has been seen moving much faster than light with ease. He can fly at two thousand miles per second, equal to Mach 9350.

Healing Factor - He can heal from nearly any injury instantaneously as long as it isn't from Kryptonite.

2 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.

Yes, finally someone makes some sense, ok time to explain!

Superman Vs Hulk

Ok Supermans heat vision, wont help. Heat gives off gamma rays, increasing hulks strength, and he is invulnerable to fire, and extremely high temperatures. Superman can't to anything with hulks mind because hulk cannot be mentally attacked in any way. All the things that Supes pulls off on hulk makes him madder. When hulk is calm he can lift 100 tons with ease, that's a lot of blue whales. Hulk can jump into space, and breath under water. He can survive through the coldest temperatures. Better yet, his body can heal it self incredibly quickly. He has survived having all of his flesh burnt off of him, and he can regenerate it back in a few minutes. Superman has one problem witch I think gives the hulk the edge. Superman weakens over time in battle. Hulk just gets more and more pissed, and has limitless strength. This has been bothering me for ages! Hulk has the edge, FACE IT!

Hulk has limitless strength, as said by some other commentators. While there are series in which Hulk is shows s still needing oxygen, others shows the Hulk perfectly capable of surviving in other atmospheres. The amount of gama radiation that created the Hulk created a being of unlimited potential. Hulk is basically able to fly with his mighty leaps, and superman's heat vision would barley phase him. Superman also has a regard for his surroundings and puts limitations upon himself, where if he faced The Hulk, The Hulk has a single objective.

First of all, all of these super heroes are over powered. When I look at super heroes I don't care about what they did in the comic books. I mean seriously if you want to play that way then flash wins every single battle against every single person, except for my main man GOKU. I mean no one could touch flash he is way too fast, being able to outrun death is just going too far.

So when I look at superheroes I look at the movies and T.V. series were they have to make their powers reasonable.

The new superman movie was great. It made him reasonable and limited his power (and by that I mean they give him the powers he started with not this junk where he could do anything. I remember watching a superman movie were he tore off his "S" emblem and it turned into a plastic bag. Ridiculous)

Now if we look at it this way I have no doubt hulk wins. He is clearly the strongest out of the Avengers, and there is no way Thor is stronger, and go back to the fight with Graviton he ...more

Hulk strength has no limits. The best, and maybe the only way, of dealing with hulk is to letting him go, so he can calm and return to the form of Dr Banner.
In the exterior, Hulk does not fare well when confronting powerhouses such as Superman and Thor, only because these guys are good in their heart. Hulk cannot get angrier with good entities, because they are trying to protect people, which is something Hulk is also for.
However, when confronted with evil, hulk get so outraged by the cruelty of the actions of the evildoer that he will keep increasing its strength, getting mad and madder, until he gets so strong that he ends up destroying whoever bad guy opposes him. In the case of doomsday, I see it giving Hulk a hard time at the beginning of the fight. But as the fight progresses, I see doomsday succumbing to Hulk's wrath at the end of not just the first fight, but of many others. The battle with doomsday would finish with Hulk going World Breaker and throwing him at the ...more

3 One Above All

The One Above All not to be confused with the Celestial of the same name is THE supreme being of Marvel and the Living Tribunal s master. He is the only being in the entire Marvel multiverse with true omnipotence.

When you think of God as the creator of all in the real world if you are that way inclined, the One Above All is essentially Marvel s version of that supreme being. He is the reason everything in the Marvel multiverse exists including every other character in this list and, as such, he possesses every possible power you can imagine and he possesses it on a truly multiversal scale, allowing him to, quite literally, do anything he wants to do.

He has actually interacted with some lesser characters on occasion, such as when the Fantastic Four travelled to the edge of existence and ended up in his realm. He took the form of the late Marvel artist, writer and editor Jack Kirby another reason that leads some people to believe that he and the Fulcrum are one and the ...more

If you are talking about physical strength, many would say that Hulk is the strongest one. Fools. One Above All is creator of everything and nothing can exist without him. At first, I think he would not arm wrestle Hulk, Thor or Superman, because he can just erase them from reality with a snap of fingers. Even if he try to beat them physically, TOAA can have as much strength, as he like because he is Ultimate God of Marvel Multiverse. His powers are limitless. It says that all beings combined in Marvel Multiverse would not stand a chance of beating him. This list includes powerful beings like Thanos, Galactus, Thor, Silver Surfer, Apocalypse, Hulk, and he can beat crap out of Beyonder too. He is The One Above All.

As the being who created the marvel universe, I find it hard to fathom anyone considering putting anything above him. He created everything. He has true omnipotence. Literally means he can do anything. He's omniscient. He knows everything. He is everything and he will always know everything. He could erase anything from the marvel universe he wants, simple as that. He needs to be number 1. And the source, which is the D.C. equivalent should be alongside him because they're literally the God of the God's Gods, nobody and nothing stands a chance in their respective multiverses, and I'd have to give he edge to the source as he has superman in his corner.

The One Above All also known as T.O.A.A. is the creator of the entire Marvel Multiverse. He controls it All, he can do it All. He is All. He could kick the Hulk's butt even before the Hulk's notices it. He is the Creator of Galactus, Infinity, Eternity, Death and Oblivion. Even the Celestials don't stand a chance against him.
The Living Tribunal (the one who always stops Multiverse disasters) is for Him like Jarvis is to Iron-Man or Alfred to Batman.
The power of the Infinity Gems together in the Infinity Gauntlet are none compared to Him.
He is simply The One Above All.

4 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.

Thor is openly admitted by Stan Lee as the strongest and most powerful character in comic book history. Every hero (including Hulk) has a weakness of some sort. Thor has none. His intellect is massively superior, he has been training in the arts of war and battle for thousands of years, against enemies far greater than that even encountered in the lower ends of the Avengers. His strength is unrivaled, he has even been known to move entire planets by just brute strength. Not forgetting the most powerful weapon in the entire universe Mjolnir. Thor is infinitely more powerful than anyone and his also extremely likable on all fronts. A fantastic addition to marvel comics, Thor reigns over all entities.

To me, personally, Thor is #1! Like some of the other posts I have read, he is the most powerful of all heroes ever created, even Superman (even though he is so hot! ) Thor has lived for thousands of years, gained knowledge beyond our comprehension, battled millions of monsters and evil beings, waged thounsands of wars than in recorded history, has power that we can not begin to understand the limit to (if it even has a limit), and not to metion the dream husband of many women! He is compasionaite, kind, gentle, caring, loving, strong, and every good trait you can think up. He may be powerful, but he is truly (in Asgard standards) only the second most powerful. (Odin, his father, is number one. ) In Marvel standards, he is number one. In a fight with Hulk, Thor usually holds back, because he likes the friendly competition between him and his fellow Avenger. So if he were to go head to head in an all out battle, I believe Thor would win by a landslide. Though it will probably take ...more

The angrier hulk gets he gets stronger... But keep in mind that's if he has time to catch his breath! Thor and superman won't give him that chance to do so... Hulk is STRONG but the THOR is the mightiest, Combat skills Stamina STRENGTH and Power ETC.. Thor Holds back because no matter what Hulk is still human and THOR wont pass that point of killing him.. If he really wanted to GOD BLAST say no more. Superman yes would give him one great fight... But THOR still has Magic and wits and years of hand to hand experience

This character has survive Planet explosions, nuclear attacks, blasts that could destroy stars. Also Mjolnir, his weapon, has enough power to destroy a whole planet, as Beta Ray Bill said, the first time he was able to lift the hammer (a 1975 edition).

It is a shame that Marvel have weaken this character over the years, Stan Lee, the creator of almost all Marvel heroes also stated that he create the Might Thor to be the most powerful hero, and it was so, but today Marvel USUALLY change this.

5 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.

This is about pure physical strength.
Scarlet Witch is at average human strength.
Wolverine is about as strong as a human can get, lifting maybe a cow.
She Hulk can lift about 91 tons. She could lift up maybe a jet plane.
Hulk, at an enraged state, not base, could lift up maybe the world's tallest building, Burj Dubai.
Apocalypse has no limit to his strength, but at base, maybe the same as Hulk.
Thor could probably lift up one of the smaller asteroids in the asteroid belt.
Doomsday could probably lift up Mount Everest, the tallest mountain.
Which Juggernaut? I'm assuming Cain Marko at near full power. He could definitely lift up one of the larger asteroids.
Red Hulk could probably lift the entire island of Manhattan at enraged state.
Darkseid at full power could lift the moon like you lift a bowling ball.
Sentry could lift up this entire planet.
The current Silver Surfer could lift up our sun, but would struggle a lot.
Which Thanos? Which ...more

Here's the thing, this list specifies physical strength only. But is it earthly strength or cosmic strength? If both, beings like Galactus, Tyrant, Beyonder, Living Tribunal, Spectre, and the Surfer have an unfair advantage. Galactus may have gotten physically beaten by Thor and Jean Grey, but Galactus' strength is incalculable. Also, Wolverine can defeat Darkseid, Ghost Rider, and Thanos?! Apocalypse is stronger than an enraged Hulk, anyway. Where is the Living tribunal?!
Also, Galactus is never truly shown in the comics. He is actually a cosmic being who takes the form of a giant man in armor. Thor, Ghost Rider, and Lobo all have the potential to destroy the Galactus armor, but the moment before he dies, he will release a blast that will literally wipe all matter from existence within a minimum of 42 light years according to Silver Surfer. So you can physically destroy Galactus, but the moment before he dies, before he is considered defeated, the being fighting him will be wiped ...more

People seem to not get this list. You need to not think about it like "who can beat who", but more like which comic book character/entity can bench press more (we are gonna need a big bench press laugh out loud). Obviously there is physical strength that comes from cosmic power or magic. The clear winner for actual beings and not entities is "the be yonder" but since he is not from this multiverse I'm gonna give it to galactus, my favorite cosmic hungry guy. The winner for everything is The One Above All with unlimited cosmic power, unlimited magic, unlimited everything. But that's a cop-out. So once again Galactus has my vote just because he is actually somewhat vulnerable and is from around here laugh out loud.

Well, is this based on how strong physically the character is? Well then, in all honestly, the characters on this list pale in comparison to Galactus. I don't think many on here know of Galactus's power levels. He has the abilities beyond Superman: Super Strength via his connection with the Cosmic Power, the ability to project blasts strong enough to decimate a galaxy at his most powerful state, and other abilities beyond. Even only based on strength, Galactus can take on Hulk, Superman, or any other on this list with no problem. There ya go.

6 Thanos Thanos is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character was created by Jim Starlin and Mike Friedrich. The character first appeared in Iron Man #55 and has been portrayed by actors Damion Poitier and Josh Brolin in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Thanos merged with the Heart of the Universe, this made him a god. He could even kill a Celestial with but a glance! Thanos decided that the true sign of his ultimate power would be to destroy the universe and become the one true supreme being.
He later chose to remove the Heart of the Universe from existance. This removed his power. But the merges Thanos could and did destroy everything and everyone. There is no other character could even get near.

Thanos is strong, but he usually requires the stone's powers, which other people should be able to wield with the infinity gauntlet. So he is strong, and can be extremely strong, but only with outside power.

Thanos is the strongest as we saw that in guardians of the galaxy they said that he is amongst the strongest in universe but in my opinion he is the best.

Let's just say that in the comic books he rips off hulk's head, the number one person on this list. In the comic books they describe him as God.

7 Apocalypse Apocalypse, also known as En Sabah Nur, is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.

Imagine all of the most powerful mutations put into one mutant. Phoenix, Magneto, Professor X, and etc into one epic villain called Apocalypse.

He can absorb physical powers he is invincible. He is definitely the strongest character. He can steel powers from other charters.

Apocalypse is thousands of years old, he's existed before all this mutants.

Stronger than hulk look it up. Many psionic powers, shape shifting, basiclly indestructible and on and on. Deserves number 1

8 Darkseid Darkseid is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. Created by writer-artist Jack Kirby, the character made a cameo appearance in Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen #134 before making his full first appearance in Forever People #1. He is the father of Orion, Kalibak, ...read more.

Darkseid is the son of thor and batwoman, dark side is OP! He could lift 10 cars without his hands, legs or intestines! ' #1 by far far far!

Could have killed superman but decided to torture him instead. He also killed brainiac!

How is apocalypse better then darkseid? He's called the lord of apocalypse for a reason!

It required the hole JL to take care of him put him second right after after Doomsday!

9 Juggernaut

He is the unstoppable because once he gains momentum nothing on earth can stop him. He is invulnerable and has unlimited strenth, stamina and agilty. He has a gem of Cyttorak which gives him all his power. He has not been beaten by thor, hulk or anyone but by apocalypse and by hulk's son Skaar.

Juggernaut's powers is magic in origin and his strength is limitless he can be as strong as he wants to be.

8th Day Juggs and Trion Juggs are known to be even stronger versions of Juggernaut. Even WWHulk (strongest version of Hulk) knew not to mess with him and avoided the fight.

Everybody knows that the juggernaut is the strongest out of all the strong guys in marvel like hulk, rhino, colossus, abomination, etc. He has beaten hulk and he'll do it again.

Spiderman beat him, but to be fair he did it using his wits and not strength. Juggernaut is much stronger.

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

In all aspects Doomsday is the strongest, because he can innately get stronger from dying.

The Hulk gets stronger the angrier he gets, while Doomsday gets stronger and more invulnerable every time he dies. I also don't think the Hulk can out anger the effects of the vacuum or escape say a black hole. What's he going to do jump off a planet that's getting sucked in, troll physics anyone? This is of course if were going by normal science physics, which most science fiction does. If there are no boundaries than any character could be the strongest. But let's be honest, I mean how far can Gamma Radiation really take Bruce Banner...

Superman gets his strength from the sun, the same power source as Doomsday. Although, Doomsday does not need the sun to regenerate, he just needs it to speed up that process.

Thor... Thor may be considered a god to human's, but let's be honest if Doomsday went up against Thor it would be no match at all. Doomsday gets stronger every time he ...more

Doomsday does not need the yellow sun photonucleic effects that superman needs. His thousands of deaths made him evolve to a reactive adaption of invulnerability to everything that kills him or even hurts him. The bone protrusions he has on his body can cut through kryptonian skin and he can survive the full effect of Darkseids "Omega Effect" only too beat darkseid to near death which no other has accomplished this feat. He IS power, death and destruction and has undefined and unclear limits if he even has any. His innate hatred for all life increases his need to kill. He doesn't need to breath, eat, sleep and can maintain himself for centuries already being alive for thousands of years before Supermans race. He has no internal organs so there is nothing to damage. Doomsday has leveled planets and anyone who's stood in his way or come back a second time and finished the job.

There are so many that I wanted to vote for I couldn't even count but at the end of the day Doomsday was able to kill, not defeat, KILL Superman. That alone says top5 at the extreme least! Yes, Superman did kill doomsday at the same time but Doomsday will just keep coming back with Superman not being able to kill him the same say way twice, that is saying that if Doomsday was killed enough he will be invulnerable! He should be number 1 or number 2 being killed by superman all of those times. he is a threat nobody can get rid of for good so he should be number 1!

Doomsday can not be killed and has such the only way anyone can beat him would be a God and I'm not talking Thor God, I'm talking God of the Universe, for the only way to defeat him would be to erase this thing out of the Universe. There are a lot of characters that can beat him, but the more times this thing is beaten the closer it becomes to matching the strength of those more powerful than him. As of right now Doomsday has beaten the most powerful DC Superheroes in Villains.

The Contenders
11 Living Tribunal

First off he is #1, his third face is instant death. Adam Warlock had the Gems that is the only reason he withstood it. This list is a joke if you think Superman or Hulk can take him on!

His heads decide the destiny of the Multiverse. He 'Il
Sacrifice billion lives for trillion lives. He is only second to the One Above All..

No, living tribunal should be #3. The Presence and The ONE Above All are true omnipotents.

He s the Greatest of all

12 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 ...read more.

Fun fact! deadpool not only killed mostly everyone in the Marvel Universe, but then proceeded to kill the creators, making people like the beyonder, thor, and hulk, to never exist. Deadpool can destroy the actual marvel universe! if he can do that to D.C. then it's game over for everyone. No way deadpool can kill superman 1v1, but he can destroy superman's universe, killing him and everyone else with it! Deadpool is definitely the strongest of all of them

Deadpool is one of my favorite marvel villains! He can never die! For example you cut his head off and every other limb on his body stick to a bomb and make it explode. Deadpool will still be alive! Well it would take ages to regenerate back his limbs. But still! Who is the merc with the mouth? Deadpool! Seriously guys he should be around 15 or up!

In one comic series he kills the entire Marvel universe including the writers and since the One Above All is based off Marvel's writers, Deadpool can kill DC's writers, meaning that Deadpool can literally stomp any superhero or suprvillain. Did I forget to mention the he can't die?

Deadpool is my favorite marvel character ever idc what anyone says. deadpool CAN'T DIE. everyone should realize he would stand against "above all" if hislimbs grew back faster. he can find kryptonite an probably kill superman an he can talk all he wants because. superman would be all weak an all... even so in a straight up fight deadpool does have advantage with his teleporting an fighting skills

Deadpool vs hulk hm... hulk smash an smash untill he finally runs outt of anger then deadpool would kill him dang even if galactus ate earth deadpool would come find some way out with the voices in his head (being crazy an what not) an no wolverine never beat deadpool, think of it ths way wolverine can regenerate... Deadpool can't die... haha like.. Really who wins this contest? Deadpool I thinkally e really

13 The Presence

The fact that superman is #1 is retarded. I keep seeing people saying that since Shazam, Black Adam or Doomsday have beaten Superman, then that makes the top 5. That makes them top 75 maybe. They don't think about character that are above the level of a physical form. Characters that are truly Omnipotent, Omnipresent, Immortal, and Omniscient. Character more powerful than Superman, Martian Manhunter or The Flash for example, have no chance at beating these supreme being. Characters like The Beyonder, The Presence, The One Above All, or The Living Tribunal could erase superman, hulk, Shazam etc. from existence to where Superman never existed at all. What can the Hulk honestly do to someone like Galactus. Is he gonna punch him to death? Is he gonna physically beat, a character who as the ability to warp reality to his will and whose true form is beyond comprehension. Hulk, Superman and in general all the most popular superheroes like Batman, Deadpool, or Captain America are so overrated ...more

The Presence and The One Above All should be tied for 1st.

Omnipotent, Omniscient, Omnipresent, Immortal, Created the dc universe...

The presence created The DC world and he is a fictional shape of god, what are you talking about he should be number 1

14 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.

Ummm Let's see Wolverine can almost go on the same fighting level as health, he was once ripped by Hulk in half then just regenerated in like 3 days, Wolverine killed the strongest mutant ( Jean Grey ). Basically Immortal and if you want to know why Wolverine is stronger than Thor, Have you seen the Avengers movie, you could see Thor getting punched by Hulk numerous times while Wolverine can just dodge them.

This has to be First. He has adamantium claws, can fight in hand to hand combat and has regenerative powers. He killed quite possibly the most powerful mutant is Jean Grey/Phoenix and he was also ripped in half by the Hulk. Stan Lee said the only way to kill him is to cut out his heart and throw it into the sun.

He's the best in the world he can virtually destroy anyone. His claws are also so sharp and I bet you it would be really hard to withstand his attack.
He is also the best X man in the whole universe.

Wolverine like the person below me said he killed jean gray which is true and she tried to incinerate him and she failed and don't forget he passed out and was in the bottom of the ocean for about 3 days. He can't even be blowen up by a atomic bomb. The only two people who have a chance at killing Wolverine are Deadpool and Sabertooth because they have regen powers.

15 Captain Marvel Carol Susan Jane Danvers, or Captain Marvel, is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. She is portrayed by Brie Larson in the movies Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame. Created by writer Roy Thomas and artist Gene Colan, Danvers first appeared as an officer ...read more.

Captain Marvel is capable of defeating Superman, which should automatically put him around #2 or #3. However, the popularity of the previous characters definitely makes voters neglect characters like Captain Marvel. He has a power overload, and has the attributes of many different gods and heroes. The New 52 comic on Captain Marvel, describes him as having many powers that he has not discovered. His only flaw (that I can think of) is that he is mortal and that he has a "childish" nature. Sure, certain comics have other heroes defeating him (e. G Superman, or Thor in the Marvel-DC crossover), but that is mainly based off reasons of popularity. It is natural for DC to neglect Billy's potential in order to idolize the more "well-known" characters. After all, Batman has defeated Superman multiple times, which is solely based off of the bias against Superman. From this, it can be concluded that a character's popularity definitely affects how he or she is portrayed in the comics. Overall, ...more

Captain marvel beats superman in many comics when captain marvel was owned by another publisher. Superman is impervious to magic and cosmic attacks. Captain marvel is basically a magical superman. In later comics, due to mad fans, superman fights marvel again and wins by throwing marvel under one of his magical lightning bolts and "unshazaming" him. In my opinion, that's a load of crap because nobody knew (except readers and writers) that a lightning bolt would turn him back to normal. And superman's ability to take on magical attacks at that rate makes me feel like writers from the DC world just want superman to be at the top of the mountain. Now it all depends because superheros and villains are stronger depending on the time period and comic.

Captain Marvel has the powers of Gods which put him in the top 10 of this list at the least. He can match Superman in strength, speed, durability and power and he has magic lightning! He also has the wisdom of a God which I personally do not get because he is a child but that is beside the point. He is definitely able to be in the top 5 because he can match or even best Superman! Sorry Superman but Captain Marvel takes my vote.

Human, not an alien! Superman competes with him only because the writers want to write it that way. DC wants SM to be their flagship hero. Sorry DC, Captain Marvel is the greatest superhero of all time! Instead of holding him down for SM you should be taking advantage of the copyrights you purchased and give CM a big marketing push; then you will see just how much he can make for you at the box office!

16 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.

The Flash. Being the one, that can perceive things at attosecond, simply means no one should be able to ever catch him off guard. Ability to run at speeds, exceeding the speed of light means, that no one, realistically, should be be able to even see him coming. And his other skills, such as infinite mass punch (which is really more of energy, not mass) in theory would enable him to shatter fabric of reality with his punches. Not to mention complete control over his molecular structure etc.

The sad part, why make him so powerful, and not USE these powers most of the time, for the obvious sake not to ruin the plot..

Can travel through time and prevent whoever he wants from ever existing...don't see anyone else doing that. Superman? Go back to his birth (Flash can run from planet to planet) and kill him as a baby if need be. When you can move faster than any other being in existence, it's hard to say someone could kill you. Can't kill what you can't see. All these people that are "immortal" could just be ripped apart by him and spread to different parts of the universe in a matter of seconds before anyone else knew what happened if they used his full power.

Realistically there's no way anyone could catch/see the Flash. He's just nerfed in shows so that us viewers could see him. If Flash were to use his powers fully, he would defeat so many of his enemies in literally a blink of an eye. The guy could literally run around the world in less than a second and punch you. BOOM goes your noggin'. And if people want to argue about characters who can fly... It would end up in a stalemate at worst... Since no one could really catch the speedster. He should definitely be higher on this list. Not number 1 of course, but for sure higher.

F=MA or more appropriately the change in momentum(p)= the product of an object's intrinsic mass(m) and its velocity(v) or p=mv. Think of the change in momentum as how hard it is for your face to stop a punch applied over a period of time at a certain velocity. An object moving at an incredible velocity like that of the Flash, who's speed is rivaled by none, would punch any enemy at a superior velocity over a period of time that the impulse, from the change in momentum, would render all rivals into a pile of dust at the very least.

17 Superboy Prime Superboy-Prime, also known as Superman-Prime or simply Prime, is a DC Comics superhero turned supervillain, and one of several alternate Supermen.

This might be the biggest brat in comic book history but he is absolutely one of the strongest characters ever. He was the main villain in infinite crisis. He has taken on both the green lantern corps and the sinestro corps (after betraying them), defeated sodam yat w/the power of ion, the antimonitor with one punch, defeated monarch, (whose body blew up a universe), survived an attack against the black lanterns, and will eventually become the time trapper. I doubt even the retcon of the New DC 52 will stop superboy prime from returning.

The guy is so strong he tear a hole through reality he should be top ten

18 Anti-Monitor

Can absorb the energies surrounding him into himself to grow more powerful. Killed a distracted Supergirl with no effort at all. He is completely indestructible as long as the anti-matter universe exists. When his power was drained and was in a state of near-death, he absorbed his own anti-matter demons to rejuvenate himself. He can warp reality. Survived blows from Superman and a Blue Sun going Supernova. He commanded an army of Qwardians and Shadow Demons and had access to highly advanced technology. He is huge. The only reason this guy isn't in the top 5 is because nobody knows who he is.

The sad thing is that Anti-Moniter is NO DOUBT the strongest character in comic book history. It takes the whole Avengers to beat Galactus, but it takes 52 versions of every comic hero AND villain ever to beat Anti-Monitor. Anti-Monitor could beat 52 versions of Superman, Hulk, Thor, Darkseid, Apocalypse, Thanos, the whole entire Green Lantern Corps, and Sinestro ALL WORKING TOGETHER with one hand tied behind the back. It's sad when you realize that people think Batman is stronger than Anti-Monitor simply because they like Batman more. Oh well.

How is this guy not in the top ten?!?!? He controls Anti-matter and is a universe level threat! He Killed untold Billions and nearly destroyed the universe! He has tried multiple times to re-create the universe! He is practically a God

Nearly destroyed the universe single handed. Rules the Anti matter universe, IE controls Anti matter. God like in immortality

19 Black Adam Black Adam is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, and is a primary adversary of the superhero Shazam, formerly known as Captain Marvel.

He can kill superman that alone should make him top 5. The fact that he can fight superman and captain marvel at the same time should make him top 3.

He can kill any one

Are you kidding me should be in 1st are you forgetting his unibeam blasts that has killed Mandarin even his healing factor is faster than deadpool. Even not now but in future generation he can make machine which can biologically strengthen his physical health so he can live more than 500years and later he can create anything else or a cosmic iron man suit more powerful than Galactus

His suit cannot make up for the fact that he is basically a mortal human being. He lacks the physical strength.

If this list was about mind and intelligence, he would rank higher for sure!

He is 138. Are you kidding me. He has missiles and is extremely smary like batman and can fly and is the leader of the avengers.

Come on man iron man in 42...are you kidding this guy is genius he can create any buster suit to beat any superhero

22 Red Hulk

A more aggressive, military minded, version of the Green Hulk. And known to be tougher! If that's even possible!

How come I have never heard of red hulk, and why haven't they made comics or T.V. shows about this

He is the best and he should be stronger than green hulk.

He kicked hulks arsenic

25 Adam Warlock Adam Warlock, originally known as Him or Adam, is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character's earliest appearances were in Fantastic Four #66–67 and Thor #165–166.

Marvel Database about Adam Warlocks power. "Immortality: While Adam can be killed, he never truly dies. This is due to the fact his soul is so strong, even Death herself cannot claim his soul. As such, he can be reborn."

The undying is never gonna fail without coming back again and again and again. He won't stop until he wins. He'll win in no time.

He is the strongest
