As soon as their comic writers allowed filmmakers to start making films on their superheroes, the popular heroes in comics got dominated by the ones that are featured in films.

That superhero who almost killed Thanos and also was the reason for the death of Half of the universe. Thor is an Asgardian, the god of Thunder. His father is Odin and they almost lived for 3000 – 4000 years. Thor is powerful but not smart. Thor’s identity is not hidden like Spiderman and Batman, he is known as Thor and only Thor to the world. He is a member of Avengers and saved Earth many times from extinction. But unfortunately, he lost Asgard, in the process of destroying her sister – Hela.

If you ask me why Black Panther is on the list, then you are not aware of how the comic industry is changing. The Black Panther movie that released in February 2018, has grossed more than a billion dollars all around the world making it one of the highest grossing Marvel films, and do you know the reason for that? Here are a few, Black Panther is an African superhero, not an American, which makes him special. Black Panther aka T’Challa is even richer than Iron Man and also Batman. He is king of Wakanda, a country that has Vibranium – Strongest metal beneath its soil.

Number 8 – Wonder Woman

Most Famous and Popular Superheroes

Publisher: DC Comics

Created byWilliam Moulton Marston, Harry G. Peter (artist)

First AppearanceAll-Star Comics #8 (released October 1941)

Abilities:

This is not a Super Heroine name list, yet she is here. Wonder Woman aka Princess Diana of Themyscira is a founding member of Justice League. While all the films of DC extended Universe are disappointing the audience and the DC itself, Wonder Woman came out to be a super hit and was liked by many all around the world. Wonder Woman is a female character and she being such powerful gave an inspiration to all woman and girls, thus she came into this list.  For your information, June 3 is celebrated as Wonder Woman Day.

Number 7 – Hulk

Most Famous and Popular Superheroes

Publisher: Marvel Comics

Created byStan Lee, Jack Kirby

First AppearanceThe Incredible Hulk #1 (May 1962)

Abilities:

  • As Bruce Banner:
    Genius-level intellect
  • As Hulk:
    Invulnerability
    Superhuman strength, stamina, and durability

The Incredible Hulk, that’s’ what he is called, one of the strongest Marvel characters. The angriest Avengers and also the most powerful one(Sometimes). Hulk’s energy and power are what we need to talk about. Many Superheroes have their strengths and powers fixed or limited, but that’s not the situation with Hulk. His anger determines his power, energy, and strength, the angrier he gets, the more powerful he becomes. Thanos even mentioned that he always avoids a battle with Hulk because he knows how dangerous Hulk is.

Number 6 – Captain America

Most Famous and Popular Superheroes

Publisher: Marvel Comics

Created ByJoe Simon, Jack Kirby

First AppearanceCaptain America Comics #1 (March 1941

Abilities:

  • Peak human strength, speed, durability, agility, reflexes, senses, and mental processing
  • Master martial artist and hand-to-hand combatant
  • Accelerated healing factor
  • Expert tactician, strategist, and field commander
  • Wields vibranium-steel alloy shield

It was at the time of World War 2, Steve Rogers allowed himself to be experimented on “Super Soldier Serum”, that’s how he became a mutant and also a superhero. Captain America is known as the man with a shield. He is a favorite to millions around the world. The story got better when he had a conflict with Iron Man caused Civil War. The directors of Avengers Infinity War even claim that the actual reason why Avengers lost to Thanos is Because of Civil War. Captain America is the true leader of Avengers.

Number 5 – Superman

Most Famous and Popular Superheroes

Publisher: DC Comics

Created ByJerry Siegel (writer), Joe Shuster (artist)

First AppearanceAction Comics #1 (cover date June 1938 / published April 18, 1938)

Abilities:

Superman has a deep history. He’s actually an alien from the planet Krypton. He true parents named him Kal-El. He is sent to another planet to escape extinction. That’s how he came to earth and became Clark Kent (Adopted name).  The symbol you see on his chest “S” means hope. Superman is the most powerful superhero in DC universe and is a member of Justice League. Superman has a weakness and that is element Krypton. His powers get weak when exposed to the element Krypton and can also get killed with the same.

Number 4 – Wolverine

Most Famous and Popular Superheroes

Publisher: Marvel Comics

Created ByRoy Thomas, Len Wein, John Romita Sr.

First Appearance: CameoThe Incredible Hulk #180 (October 1974), Full appearanceThe Incredible Hulk #181 (November 1974)

Abilities:

  • Superhuman senses, agility, reflexes, and animal-like attributes
  • Extended longevity via regenerative healing factor
  • Adamantium-plated skeleton
  • Retractable bone claws
  • Skilled hand-to-hand combatant

Wolverine is my favorite character in the mutant universe. His Retractable bone claws give goosebumps. Wolverine has a high level of healing power. He is a powerful superhero and a trained fighter. Defeating him in combats is almost impossible. But unfortunately, Fox has killed him in the movie – Logan. There are chances that he might come back, rather I would say, he has to come back. Wolverine is portrayed by Huge Jackman in the X-Men series.

Number 3 – Iron Man

Most Famous and Popular Superheroes

Publisher: Marvel Comics

Created ByStan Lee, Larry Lieber, Don Heck, Jack Kirby

First AppearanceTales of Suspense #39 (March 1963)

Abilities:

Iron Man was not that famous at all. It was Robert Downey Jr. who made the character a worldwide sensation. Iron Man is the smartest Avenger and the second richest I guess, after Black Panther. Iron Man aka Tony Stark had to face a heart injury and got kidnapped by Asian terrorists, they forced him to make weapons for them, but instead, he made an armor for himself to save his life and to escape. The rest is history.  Ironman is especially my favorite character because he is irreplaceable and cool.

Number 2 – Spiderman

Most Famous and Popular Superheroes

Publisher: Marvel Comics

Created ByStan Lee, Steve Ditko

First AppearanceAmazing Fantasy #15 (August 1962)

Abilities:

Spiderman is Stanlee’s favorite superhero. When Peter Parker was on a science trip, he gets bit by a spider and gains superpowers to become Spiderman, that’s how simple the story is. Spiderman is the most successful superhero in terms of box office collection and also an audience favorite. The story of Spiderman still continues to be made into films. Spiderman’s secret identity is the most interesting thing about his character. When you compare Spiderman with other superheroes you will understand that his superpowers are not that big a deal and he is not the most powerful superhero. Spiderman still does all he can to defeat enemies and wins. Does Spiderman have a healing factor? yes, he does, but not at the pace of the healing factor of Wolverine or Deadpool.

Number 1 – Batman

Most Famous and Popular Superheroes

Publisher: DC Comics

Created ByBob Kane, Bill Finger

First AppearanceDetective Comics #27 (cover date May 1939 / release date March 1939)

Abilities:

  • Genius-level intellect
  • Peak human physical condition
  • Skilled martial artist and hand-to-hand combatant
  • Expert detective
  • Utilizes high-tech equipment and weapons

Honestly, Batman has no superpower and is not the most powerful DC character, he became a superhero because he wanted to. He just wanted to save Gotham city from criminals, that’s why he tops the Most Famous and Popular Superheroes list. He chose his alter ego’s name to be “Batman”, not because he had powers like Bat, but because he is afraid of them, he created a superhero costume resembling a bat. Batman aka Bruce Wayne’s parents are murdered when he was young and then the Batman saga began. Bruce is a billionaire from ancestorial property – Wayne Enterprise. Despite having no superpowers, Batman was able to defeat many Superheroes including Superman.
