Top Ten Most Violent Comic Book Characters

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, 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 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

7 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

8 Rorschach Rorschach
9 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.

10 Sabretooth

The Contenders

11 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.
12 Bullseye
13 Lobo

One of the most violent characters around. Not many characters are even close to this guy other than The Punisher who I would consider the most violent of them all.
