The Best Comic Book Superheroes of All Time (Marvel and DC)


Who is the greatest comic book hero of them all?

With the comic book era reaching unprecedented success, particularly through movies, Green Beans takes a look at the best superheroes ever to grace a comic book. Whether you are a Marvel or DC fan, this list has got it covered. Let us know your thoughts...

10. Captain America - Marvel

Created in 1941, this patriotic supersoldier, who often fought the Axis powers of World War II, was Timely Comics' most popular character during the wartime period. Captain America is now a huge hit in the new Marvel Cinematic Universe.

9. Green Lantern - DC

Forget the rubbish Ryan Reynolds movie, the Green Lantern is one of the most bad-ass superheroes you are likely to find anyone in comic book world. We expect good things from the movie reboot in a few years.

8. Aquaman - DC

The lord of the ocean makes it in at number eight on our list. Again, if you cast aside the rather camp cartoons of the past and focus on the present, you'll soon discover how freaking awesome Aquaman really is.

7. Iron Man - Marvel

Made super famous by the hugely successful movies, comic book nerds could have told you how cool Iron Man always was. He may only be human, but he's got some seriously kick-ass equipment.

6. Hulk - Marvel

Don't get this boy raging or you'll soon be in for a fright. Hulk is an iconic comic book character, and is one of the most well-known across the globe.

5. Wonder Woman - DC

Wonder Woman is the only female superhero to make it on this list, and now they're including this Amazonian Warrior in the new DC Cinematic Universe, which her character so richly deserves.

4. Wolverine - Marvel

Wolverine is the most iconic and popular character of the X-Men clang. So popular, in fact, that they even made a bunch of spin off films about him. This gritty character is hard as nails and a true idol to most young comic book readers.

3. Batman - DC

Many of you would have placed Batman at number one on your list, but we thought differently. We do love Bats, and his army of entertaining villains, but not enough to place him in our top two...

2. Spider-Man - Marvel

Spider-Man is without doubt Marvel's most popular super hero, and his addition to the Cinematic Universe could be a stroke of real genius. Loaded with amazing villains and great story-lines, Peter Parker just misses out on top spot...

1. Superman - DC

The last son of Krypton flies in at number one on our list. Superman is by far the most well-known and well-loved super hero that ever existed, and it doesn't look like anyone is about to dethrone him any time soon.
