Most iconic of DC Comics subsidiary of Warner Brothers(Known for animation video things such as Animaniacs cartoon) and Time Warner in charge mostly. Possibly the best franchise and character the company ever dealt with. The dark bat knight with white eyes can be seen at times in deeper shades of blue also. Saving the main city of Gotham from high mounted places where balances right from wrong as their best hero. Many versions determined, the gadgets that invent from the start through and sometimes otherwise derived wins the matches as a true caped crusader should. An escape is not much far either as there are methods in any medium that the character may traverse. Jolly truly wonderful, fine and dandy,
Batman is the one with the best stories and has the strongest mind of them all. He has the tactical advantage in nearly every situation and his combat skills are often unmatched. How does that not indicate on him being the best DC hero of all time? With a little of preparation time Batman is able to take down anyone, even Superman! All of this he achieves with no superpowers, just his mind, combat skills, detective skills, tactics and gadgets. He is pure awesomeness.
I think there is not doubt that Batman is the best Superhero in DC comics. He is one of the most interesting characters, the supporting cast is almost flawless and, of course, the best rogues gallery in all of comic book history. Plus, thanks to Nolan's trilogy and Arkham games, he has been spreading through media faster than any other heroes. Let's just hope Zack Snyder doesn't mess his reputation up with the upcoming movie.
Well Batman is cool and all but he is overrated but not as much as Superman. HE beat superman. But I think Huntress should have this spot after all she has done and SPOILER: HUNTRESS beats Batman, Wonder Woman, and Hawkgirl! If that is not enough for you than what is! VOTE for Huntress! NOW!
PS: Huntress used to be one but they decided to move her down just because of Batman's over popularity and Superman's too.
2. The 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, while acknowledging Finger's writing contribution. Although the Joker was planned to be killed off during his initial appearance, he was spared by editorial intervention, allowing the character to endure as the archenemy of the superhero Batman. The Joker has also been included in many other platforms such as the Arkham game series, the DC animated universe, Young Justice, graphic novels, and the Nolan trilogy of batman movies. His most famous quote is "Why so serious?" and his worst deed was killing Jason Todd.
The Joker has been adapted to serve as Batman's adversary in live-action, animated, and video game incarnations, including the 1960s Batman television series (played by Cesar Romero) and in films by Jack Nicholson in Batman (1989); Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight (2008); Jared Leto in Suicide Squad (2016); and Joaquin Phoenix in Joker (2019). Mark Hamill, Kevin Michael Richardson, and Troy Baker have voiced the character.
Superman is a comic character. And probably the first powerful superhero in the fictional world. The character was created by writer Jerry Siegel and artist Joe Shuster, high school students living in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1933. It was published by DC comics. The first animated superhero movie was superman. The origin story of Superman relates that he was born Kal-El on the planet Krypton, before being rocketed to Earth as an infant by his scientist father Jor-El, moments before Krypton's destruction. Discovered and adopted by a Kansas farm couple, the child is raised as Clark Kent and imbued with a strong moral compass. Very early on he started to display various superhuman abilities, which, upon reaching maturity, he resolved to use for the benefit of humanity through a secret "Superman" identity.
Superman resides and operates in the fictional American city of Metropolis. As Clark Kent, he is a journalist for the Daily Planet, a Metropolis newspaper. Superman's love interest is generally Lois Lane, and his archenemy is the supervillain Lex Luthor. A close ally of Batman and Wonder Woman, he is typically depicted as a member of the Justice League. Like other characters in the DC Universe, several alternate versions of Superman have been characterized over the years.
Superman's appearance is distinctive and iconic; he usually wears a blue costume with a red-and-yellow emblem on the chest, consisting of the letter S in a shield shape, and a red cape. This shield is used in many media to symbolize the character. Superman is widely considered an American cultural icon. He has fascinated scholars, with cultural theorists, commentators, and critics alike exploring the character's role and impact in the United States and worldwide. The character's ownership has often been the subject of dispute, with Siegel and Shuster twice suing for the return of rights. The character has been adapted extensively and portrayed in other forms of media as well, including films, television series, and video games. Several actors have portrayed Superman in motion pictures and TV series including Kirk Alyn, George Reeves, Christopher Reeve, Dean Cain, Tom Welling, Brandon Routh, Henry Cavill, and Tyler Hoechlin.
4. The Flash
He is the man with unimaginable and dangerous powers. The Flash is not just a man or a superhero who runs fast but, he is the person with truly responsible superpowers. Without showing of or threatening people like any other superheroes he do his work very efficiently. His cool personality makes him a better citizen as well as a superhero having positive thinking. Every superhero has their own personal issues and they dragged the whole world into some worst situations where they cannot reset the things. But The Flash is only one who changed the course of history and reset it as it is. as a normal person for me The Flash is only one who cares about feelings of others. He is very sensitive person and respect the feelings of people. That's why he is the REAL SUPERHERO.
The Flash is possibly the most important character in DC, if not all of comics. The Flash (either Barry Allen, Wally West, or Bart Allen) has been at the center of every major DC event in history, and the history of The Flash is pretty much linked with the history of DC itself. In the Golden Age, Jay Garrick Flash was one of the first superheroes, but after WWII people didn't really care about superheroes that much (punching Hitler wasn't cool anymore). So DC rebooted Flash as Barry Allen, a mild-mannered police scientist, and people loved him so much that they started buying comics again, and DC rebooted Green Lantern, Atom, and many more. This is around the time Marvel started being a thing, and they were helped by the jump in comic sales caused by The Flash. So essentially, Flash saved not only DC comics, but all of superhero comics. He is also a superhero who is truly more than the man under the mask. Sure, Batman is "an idea", and so is Superman, but it'll always be Bruce Wayne ...more
The Flash is one of the best and the most important characters in the DC multiverse. No offense, batman, but HE CHANGED AN ENTIRE DC TIMELINE! (The Flashpoint). He also gives people hope and inspires them in a way no other superhero has ever done so. And the most important of all- his personality, his charming, funny personality gives him an edge where he seems relaxed even when the situations at at their worse. I think, the Flash can easily take down all the marvel Avengers by himself.
This dude is my favorite! When I was little batman was my favorite superhero but when I read some old flash comics I was FACINATED by the concept of superspeed,one of the coolest abilities in comic history. But the flash is more than that. He's also a relatable character with an interesting back story and a unique personality. And although his supporting cast is somewhat underrated, his T.V. show is HUGELY popular and it leaves a lot of other characters eating his speed force-energized dust! However, just because he's my favorite doesn't mean I'm biased. I honestly don't think Barry deserves second place on this list(unless it's a race). don't get me wrong, he's easily one of the greatest superheroes of all time and he does deserve top 5, but I think second place should go to batman or superman. Either way, MAY THE SPEED FORCE BE WITH YOU!
5. Green Lantern
Green Lantern is just awesome because his story is all about the ability of a human to overcome fear and take action, even when all hope seems lost. Aside from Batman, he is the only true human being in the Justice League; full of personality and motivation, he's a bigger symbol of hope than Superman ever can be. Add in the fact that he IS the most powerful member of the JL- Hal Jordan- and you have a character deserving of number.
'In Brightest Day, In Blackest Night
No Evil Shall Escape My Sight.
Let Those Who Worship Evil's Might,
Beware My Power,
GREEN LANTERN'S LIGHT! '
If anyone's a hero it's Hal Jordan, all about inspiring others to overcome fear to reach greatness, and putting his all into protecting others. Also he punches batman in the face, ultimate props for sticking it to that depressing bastard
The ring bearer as I would like to call him is probably the second strongest hero in Justice league. (second to flash) While Batman is definitely cooler than him but his at there on the top. And yes he can beat anytime.
The idea of turning your imagination and bravery into power is one one most creative concepts in comic history, and that lone makes GL great. But that's not all! He also has a good back story and a fun, relatable personality. I'm so sick and tired of people judging this guy because of ONE BAD MOVIE! Superman,batman,spidermam,iron man, and many others ALL had bad movies before and everyone still LOVES them! And in response to one guy's comment, hal charges his ring every 24 HOURS, NOT TEN MINUTES. There's a difference. One last thing... Am I the only one who thinks the green lantern animated series was underrated?
6. Wonder Woman
10?! I just came back from seeing the new movie, and she was already my fave superhero, but after seeing Gal Gadot do such a great job portraying her, I love her even more! by the way if you are 11 or over, you must see the new Wonder Woman movie, you will not regret it! It is now one of my fave movies, along with Disney's remarkable Moana! This is the best DC movie yet, can't wait for the 2020 sequel!
wonder women is my favret dc charicter and her move was great gal gadot did a very impresive job with the roll and showed the best wonder women I have ever seen
How in the world is wonder woman not at the extreme least in the top 5's. She is technically a part of the trinity so I would expect her to be 3rd. She is the face of women in the dc universe so at least help make her above Harley Quinn people!
The only true iconic female superhero. Not the only one who is great but the only who’s fame level is like IronMan, Batman, Superman or Thor.
When her film came up, the reaction was like duhh it was obvious we had to get a Wonder Woman film she is an icon.
When we knew about a Captain Marvel film was like who is that and ughh just stupid Feminist propaganda being forced on us.
If you watched teen titans, you would know why he's so amazing. He made all of the teen titans go insaine by showing them individually the cold, hard truth which I think is an amazing concept for a villain
Deathstroke is really one awesome character and villain. The thing is don't like though is how his main enemy is a group of teenagers but whatever you know.
Deathstroke has become one of my most favorite super villains because he's like Batman: he doesn't need fancy superpowers to be badass.
Deathstrtoke is 'a killing machine' (Literally)... He's a dangerous combat veteran and a mentor to Green Arrow. His portrayal in Arrow was Superb.
8. Harley Quinn
Harley Quinn is so cool! She will always be the best villain to me. In my opinion, her best appearance was in Suicide Squad. Harley Quinn has such a background story and is a character that will never be forgotten!
Wow so expected for the females on the list to be so low. Harley deserves at least 5th place and wonder woman should be much higher - definitely beating deathstroke, Martian manhunter, nightwing and the flash
Come on harley quinn is one of the best villains she doesn't deserve to be 36. she should be in top 20
She should be top 10 sense she's the second best villain ever behind joker.And Margo Robby from suicide squad was the best she was great as Harley.
9. Lex Luthor
Superman shall feel my wrath today for I am ben 10 or am I lex luthor? who cares
He killed Superman
10. Green Arrow
Awesome character he can go head on with the bats and probably win or tie if you play justice league gods among us he kills Solomon Grundy who's a 3 ton zombie and arrow just made him ten times better and is able to fight destroke and get his head his chopped off which is an amazing feat.
Billionaire business man and owner of queen industries
On the other corner...
Iron man, billionaire playboy. And owner of stark industries
This is deep thoughts by lemur...
He survived five years on a stranded island fought his enemies their... Then came back home and saved his city he fought league of assassins leader Ra's AL ghul I don't think anyone can do this much except Batman... Green arrow should be number 2
This guy is an awesome character who is not given due recognition. But still I think giving him more cool and awesome tech and also some more cool villains could increase his popularity.
