10 Amazing Super Heroes
Super heroes are the iconic symbols of American entertainment. Everything from movies, T-shirts, even underwear revolves around what is popular in the super hero world. If you have yet to explore the wonders of the heroes in not only the comic book world, but any world that revolves around a hero, then you should definitely start. They will help inspire your imagination, even motivate you to be stronger, get in shape, or change someone's life. You can never get a bad idea from reading about super heroes. Maybe you can, but it isn't very likely.
10 Amazing Super Heroes Volume 1
Goku, in my opinion, is the greatest super hero ever. He is a Saiyan, which means that every time he survives a near death experience, he grows stronger. Pretty much, his power is unlimited. The great thing about Goku is he is as pure as a super hero can get. He was sent to Earth to destroy the planet as a child. However, he bumped his head on the way down to Earth and he lost his memory. So he was raised on Earth as if he was a human child. Once he became old enough to realize his power, he used it to save the people he loved. By the time he grew up, he was saving not only his world, but other people's world as well. Goku always surprises his viewers by the random spurts of power he gains when people are in danger.
Wolverine is also on my top list of super heroes. Just to get started, he cannot die. He can be shot in the face and only lose his memory. That is pretty awesome. With that being said, what villain can ever conquer such a great hero? What I like about Wolverine is that he doesn't really want to be a hero. He is kind of stubborn and rude to people but eventually when it comes down to it, he does the right thing. It is probably like how I would be if I was a super hero. Maybe that is why I like him so much. He is a great addition to the X-Men and is iconically known and is a household name.
Some of the best superhero stories in the medium have involved a fearless man. There's just something deeply appealing about a man whose Catholic guilt forces him to throw on some red tights and venture out into the streets each night to battle ninjas and psychopaths. Daredevil suffers a bit more in his quest than do other superheroes. Which shows his true dedication to being a hero.
5. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
What screams amazing other than a pack of crime fighting ninja turtles with a master that is an expert karate rat? Say no more, they do exist. One of the most popular set of heroes ever to live, the TMNT have yet to make their final exit from the entertainment world. They are still continuing to leave their mark on the business. I still see TMNT pajamas at Walmart! They are definitely worth of the top 10 list.
Hellboy was a government experiment created by the Nazi's in World War II to change the tide of the war. He was discovered by the United States and taken and raised in America. Hellboy's powers are his superhuman strength, healing factor, and endurance. He also has the innate ability to comprehend ancient and magical languages. The extent of his strength is unclear, but he has torn down a large tree and hurled it at an opponent and has lifted massive stones. He has also picked up and thrown opponents weighing at least four to five hundred pounds. Hellboy has a high degree of resilience to injury. He can withstand powerful blows that would severely injure or kill a human.
6. Rick Grimes
A lot of people don't consider Rick Grimes a super hero. He doesn't have super powers. But I guess categorizing a super hero depends on what you consider super. This guy has killed hundred of flesh eating zombies and has still survived. It is not like he has been trained to kill. He is just a cop that woke up from a coma and found the world crawling with walkers. He ends up traveling alone to find his family and survives. Rick gets to his family and ends up saving their lives a bunch of times. What makes him different than Batman? That's what I thought. Rick Grimes is a great super hero. Saving peoples lives while on the run is all he knows.
Bruce Wayne, AKA Batman, is just a rich guy who uses all of his wealth to buy crime fighting technology instead of cocaine. He decides to dress up as a bat and get rid of all the crime in Gotham City. What makes him so great is that despite him not having super powers, he uses his great intelligence and resources to defeat his enemies. Batman always outsmarts his foes in the end.
8. The Punisher
Frank Castle is a one-man war on crime. When his family was killed by the mob, Frank sought his unique form of retribution as the Punisher. He has no powers, but is incredibly well-trained and physically fit, with a vast knowledge of weaponry, tactics, explosives and interrogation techniques.
The Punisher is hunted by many law-enforcement agencies and is not welcomed by most superheroes.
Ironman is pretty cool. He is a super genius that invented a suit so powerful that he instantly became a super hero. Tony Stark, AKA Ironman is a pretty troubled guy. He has created a pretty bad reputation for himself and Stark Industries. Now he has dedicated his life to creating a better name for himself and Stark Industries. With all the Ironman movies coming out lately, he has become a more popular super hero that ever before.
10. The Silver Surfer
This guy is pretty awesome. He takes his magical surfboard and drifts through the cosmos, looking for anything the world has to offer. His life isn't that great though. In order to save his world from the hunger of Galactus, Norrin Radd agreed to become his herald. Now Radd patrols the universe, seeking out new life and new civilizations... to be eaten by his master. It's kind of sucks being the Silver Surfer.
