Top Ten Most Violent Comic Book Characters

TechnicallyIDoComics
With bad blood on them, they commit crimes and killings, but some did good or become good later in their stories. Here's a list of violent comic characters.

The Top Ten

1 Joker Joker The Joker is a fictional super villain created by Bill Finger, Bob Kane, and Jerry Robinson who first appeared in the debut issue of the comic book Batman (April 25, 1940) published by DC Comics . Credit for the Joker's creation is disputed; Kane and Robinson claimed responsibility for the Joker's design, ...read more.

Totally insane psychopath that terrorizes Gotham to hell with his wicked ways. He was also the one who killed Jason Todd and paralyzed Barbara Gordon. Even though he's the most dangerous beings in Gotham, he's our favorite psychopath in DC today. - TechnicallyIDoComics

2 Invincible

I'm surprised you mentioned this because I did read those series, only parts of the issues gets violent as the fight goes on. I think the battle between Invincible and Conquest was the goriest, painful and gruesome fight ever in the series.

If you think the Joker ain't enough for much violence, think about Image Comics' Invincible for example. A superhero fought his enemies in a glory, gritty and "hard to watch" scenes. We've seen arms torn off, intestines exploding, face pounded, be-heading and horrifying bone-breaking moments through his story. Read this series and you'll see how bad and violent it gets. - TechnicallyIDoComics

3 Wolverine Wolverine Wolverine is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, commonly associated with the X-Men. His powers and abilities include a healing factor and his signature adamantium claws and adamantium skeleton.

Although he has healing factors and adamantium bones, Wolvie can be pretty violent when he comes across his enemies in brutal fights... Even harder fights with Sabretooth. - TechnicallyIDoComics

4 X-23 X-23

Laura Kinney maybe one of the attractive mutants in X-Men, but despite being created as a living weapon by Weapon X she gets herself in a deadly situation when she claws her enemies to death. She even had her arm cut off, burned to death and legs mangled in those series, but she does have a healing factor like Wolverine. - TechnicallyIDoComics

5 Carnage Carnage Carnage is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, usually as an enemy of Spider-Man.

Cletus Kasady was once a serial killer, now he's much dangerous when he's infected by Symbiote and becomes Carnage. - TechnicallyIDoComics

6 Rorschach Rorschach

He split a guys head with a meat cleaver in the watchmen movie...

He also poored boiling hot grease on a prisoner.

He used to not kill criminals, until he was searching for a 6 year old girl who he discovered was kidnaped, raped, and chopped into pieces and fed to dogs, he burned the pedophile to death and vowed he’d never compromise against his war on crime, if he doesn’t kill the criminals, he’ll leave theme half dead, broken limbs, or 3rd degree burns, so that is the most violent superhero ever in my opinion. Rorschach takes my vote.

7 The Punisher The Punisher The Punisher is a fictional antihero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character was created by writer Gerry Conway and artist John Romita, Sr., with publisher Stan Lee green-lighting the name.

Should easily be number 1.

I had to add him? - whitneyahn

Who the kcuf is Cassie hack?! The punisher can easily pass everyone on this list!

Why he’s no there number 1 will forever baffle me.

8 Negan Negan Negan is a fictional character from the comic book series The Walking Dead and is portrayed by Jeffrey Dean Morgan in the American television series of the same name.

The Governor wasn't that much violent in The Walking Dead comic series, but Negan's psychotic ways made him the dangerous character ever. He even kills Glen with the barb-wired baseball bat. - TechnicallyIDoComics

I can't wait for him to get killed. And I hope he suffers after everything he's done and all the innocent people he's murdered. This man has no soul.

9 Cassie Hack

From the series Hack/Slash, Cassie's violent tales leads her to fight the evil slashers along with her hulking partner, Vlad. There's much brutality in this comic series if you read them. - TechnicallyIDoComics

10 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.
