The Top Ten

1 Batman (1989) - Danny Elfman

John Williams is the most amazing musical genius ever!

Everyone knows what it is, when the first note heats.

3 Spider-Man (2002) - Danny Elfman
4 The Avengers (2012) - Alan Silverstri

This is the best theme ever! My personal favorite. It brings chills to your spine, whether you're a DC or a Marvel fan or both, there's still nothing else that says, 'saving the world and being a superhero' quite like this one.

A perfect superhero theme! It fills with you energy! - PVV11
