Great hub, man! It's funny how the Silver Surfer is always a fan favorite, but most people haven't really ever read a good Silver Surfer story. I think 99% of his attraction is just his awesome design!

I got to say Spider-man because he is the best hero out there

Joeeeee 6 years ago

1. Hulk

Hulk is the most powerful superhero. No one can defeat the Hulk after he and Bruce Banner had combined like in "Planet Hulk".

oom 6 years ago

i know hulk is strong but spider-man is better

mandie 6 years ago

are you serious spider man is the greatest

Matt 6 years ago

1. The Sentry -> Would never release his full power, in fear of destroying everything. Also the other half of the void.. if robert reynolds was in full control, he would be unstoppable.

2. Thor -> with the void being one of the most powerful supervillains, if not thee most, thor was the only one who could stand toe to toe.

3. The Hulk -> World War Hulk obviously explains why.

4. Black Bolt -> With the power he controls, only those numbered higher than himself could outdo Black Bolt.

5. Captain America -> The Cap is a serum enhanced, highly trained, super soldier! with the wits and good will to match. the Cap is smarter than most foes. and has the boost he needs to defend himself from whatever they bring to the table.

6. Wolverine - the indestructible beast himself. if weren't for Black Bolt being able to keep him far from him by a whisper... and captain america being stronger, and smarter.. (yes smarter, wolverine would have to go berserk to want to truly damage the Cap. and when he did, he'd lose the focus it'd also take to even do so.)

7. The Merc with a Mouth, Deadpool -> lets get real here. no matter how many times wolverine himself wrecks this dude. he's just as indestructible.. sometimes even more deadly. Wolverine isn't ahead of him by much, but because wolverine has so much experience.. he takes this one.

8. Dr Strange ->Simply because his magical powers are limited, yet devistating. the doc gets in on my top 10.

9. The Amazing Spiderman -> if wasn't for my knowledge of steven strange being able to consume the soul of a demon, and further gain it's power... i'd say spider could endure anything the doc could throw his way. with that said.. spiderman is either outwitted, or muscled by the rest on the list.

10. Iron Man -> I don't know rather to love or hate Tony Stark. But makes to big of decisions one minute, but has the best action possible for the next. if warned before the encounter, anyone on this list would know Iron Man is going to try to exploit their weaknesses, and will leave huge loopholes in his game. if Iron Man wouldn't make silly decisions, so quickly, such as form the superhuman illuminati.. or stick his nose out further than any other real Superhuman, Superhero, or Mutant, in governmental affairs --such as the registration act. Tony Stark would be more what the people in the MU, and in reality of the hero would all want him to be. not the face of heroes the Marvel molded.. like Captain America. but the face of heroes We the fans would actually view him as. But that's what makes Iron Man, Iron Man.

A good list, I actually started reading comics again with the advent of Marvel Zombies. The storyline of Marvel Heroes becoming Flesh eating Monsters destroying those they would normally protect was such a Powerful Idea. It is so interesting how the charactors react.

I think that Jean Grey with the Pheonix force is the most powerful because she can control anything everything, and everyone she is totally immortal and is the most powerful. I posted a link below so you can read about her and her powers she killed professor x just by looking at him

Here is another link so you can read all about the Pheonix Force:

Here is my list of my favorite superheroes but only marvel......and who i believe are also the most powerful because being a superhero doesn't mean you have to have the coolest powers you have to at least be smart:

10. Elektra

9. Wolverine




5.Hulk in 'Green Scar' incarnation

4.Silver Surfer


2.Jean Grey with Phoenix Force

wolverine's power is not admantium skeleton, its his healing factor and enhanced senses....

SHADOW DEVIL 5 years ago

Probably,spiderman is the face of marvel comics and wolverine is the face of x-men which is an important part of marvel.So,I bet you did agreat job by putting them in the front line.But ghost ridershould have a place in the list.Atleast he is more important than the thing.

gr 5 years ago

have any of you dumbos ever herd of ghost rider. he can take down any one with Penance Stare. except super man(because super man has never seriously hurt anybody). but even so gr just has to wrap his unbreakable chain around superman and he has him. plus he has God on his side( in a comic of his God helped him)

2010 Opponents: Electro, The Sandman, Mysterio, The Vulture, The Lizard, the Kraven Family, Doctor Octopus, Mister Negative

Year in Review: This could probably be said just about every year, but in 2010, nobody had a tougher time of it than Spider-Man. The Webslinger endured a grueling gauntlet arranged by the Kraven family that saw him face his oldest foes up one after the other, from a juiced up Electro to a more savage than ever Lizard to finally a resurrected Kraven himself. Spidey somehow survived the onslaught, and despite taking his lumps, ultimately saved himself and New York City. He would cap it all off by rescuing his best friend Harry Osborn’s child from the clutches of Doctor Octopus, proving all’s well that ends well—though it never ends for Spider-Man.

Pretty good list of Superheroes. I'm wondering what a list of DC heroes would look like? Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Captain Marvel, etc.
