There are some great superheroes. But some don't get enough credit. Vote for your favorite hero that you think deserves more credit.

The Top Ten

1 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.

Aquaman is super underrated. People think he can just talk to fish but he can do way more. He can dehydrate people just by touching someone and yet he is considered the lamest. So unfair.

One of the most powerful superheroes around, one of my favourite heroes

Even though Aquaman is a very powerful character with a good backstory, he is made fun of and never taken seriously

He can beat thing and ironman with ez

2 Moon Knight Moon Knight Moon Knight is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Created by Doug Moench and Don Perlin, the character first appeared in Werewolf by Night #32.

He is actually one of my favorite superheroes

One of my favorites

Moon knight is veery similar to batman however he has more emotional and psycholgical issues making him more interesting

3 Nightwing Nightwing

What are you talking about? He's a fan favorite! - DCfnaf

A lot of people like Nightwing but I still feel like he doesn't quite get the recognition he deserves. He can go toe-to-toe with Batman and even toook over the mantle when Bruce was gone. He's so fun to watch grow up and see him go from being a nine year old who watched his parents die in the circus to being a butt kicking machine only known as Nightwing. His on again/off again relationship with Barbara Gordon (Batgirl) is really fun to watch and get into as well. All in all Nightwing is a great character who I think should be acknowledged as one of the best characters in the D.C. Universe.

He is totally underrated, Nightwing is like one of the most powerful hero, like ever!

He’s a fan favorite most of the time!

4 Doctor Fate Doctor Fate
5 Martian Manhunter Martian Manhunter

He, like Aquaman, is incredibly powerful, but overshadowed by heroes like Superman, Wonder Woman and, to an extent, Batman.

How he is not #1 astounds me. They put major and in no way underrated characters like Flash, Green Arrow, and Daredevil and place them over him? Learn your comics.

6 The Question

Okay, this guy, is so cool.

Being a relatively recent addition to DC (he used to be owned by Charlton Comics), the Question never got the publicity other DC heroes got.

7 Green Arrow Green Arrow Green Arrow is a fictional superhero who appears in comic books published by DC Comics. Created by Morton Weisinger and designed by George Papp, he first appeared in More Fun Comics #73 in November 1941. His real name is Oliver Queen, a billionaire businessman and owner of Queen Industries, also a well-known ...read more.

"Best Fictional Archer" doesn't even have a movie

8 Captain Marvel/Shazam

Yep. He's pretty much incredible once he says Shazam, and as a kid he's entertaining for children. Instead they watch the Hulk get angry and hurt people. Oh well...

9 Black Lightning
10 Squirrel Girl Squirrel Girl

NO SHE IS NOT UNDERRATED! I don't care if she defeated Doctor Doom, that doesn't mean she isn't annoying and awful - DCfnaf

Squirrel girl is an incredibly formidable superhero, but a lot of her amazing fights, like beating Doctor Doom, happen off-panel. How she is so powerful is still kind of a mystery

The Newcomers

? John Constantine

The Contenders

11 Rorschach Rorschach Rorschach is a fictional anti-hero who appears in American comic books published by DC Comics. He first debuted in the graphic novel Watchmen, published from 1986-1987. Rorschach was created by writer Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons.

Best ever

He said so underrated it’s sad

He’s the best vigilante ever!

12 Black Panther Black Panther T'Challa, better known as the Black Panther, is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. He was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1966, first appearing in Fantastic Four #52 (cover-dated July 1966) in the Silver Age of Comic Books. He is known to be the ...read more.
13 Hawkman Hawkman Hawkman is a fictional superhero who appears in American comic books published by DC Comics. Created by writer Gardner Fox and artist Dennis Neville, the original Hawkman first appeared in Flash Comics #1, published by All-American Publications in 1940.
14 The Green Hornet
15 Daredevil Daredevil Daredevil is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Daredevil was created by writer-editor Stan Lee and artist Bill Everett, with an unspecified amount of input from Jack Kirby.

So underrated. This guy's beast!

16 The Flash The Flash

Flash is so strong that he could take everyone else on this list down with little effort at the same time, but people think he just runs fast.

I love this superhero and should promote more

The Flash is the most overpowered superhero out of all the ones that exist.

Better then Batman (who is overrated in my opinion) even Batman thinks he's better than Batman, he said "Barry Allen is the type if man he wish he would've became if his parents didn't die" even though he has a tragic back story he never became all dark and brooding. And he can do so much you wouldn't even imagine with superspeed. Go through walls, jump great distances, throw lightning, time travel, power punch, perform surgery, create and stop tornadoes, the possibilities are endless! I am TEAM FLASH! ⚡

I never got the sense he was underrated. Everyone seems to love him, and isn't he getting his own movie soon?

Everyone loves him and he's a fan favorite how's he underrated?

This must be the biggest joke ever. - DCfnaf

Deadpool should be taken way more seriously and not taken as a joke

24 Booster Gold Booster Gold Booster Gold is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. Created by Dan Jurgens, the character first appeared in Booster Gold #1 and has been a member of the Justice League.

Batman and Frank Miller ruined Superman's status as a powerful and that combined with the general consensus of the movies shows that no one really knows what he's capable of - Jon8201

Nobody ever appreciates him.

He was also the first superhero. If you go in outer countries he is the most well known.
