Well, I always had a plan to publish an article regarding the current topic, so I decided to write about some DC/Marvel characters. The favourites were picked on the basis of votes acquired. The votes were provided by the OLC writing and editorial staff. My personal favourite Captain America is not in the list. So here are the all-time Top 10 superheroes from Marvel and DC Comics.
10: WONDER WOMAN
Also known by her alter ego Diana Prince, Wonder Woman is a female superheroine who is a well-established face in the world of comics. The character was created to represent the condition of women during the 1940’s. The upcoming movie Batman vs Superman will be the first ever cinematic portrayal of the character she’ll be played by Gal Gadot.
9: STAR LORD
The leader of the galactic alliance Guardians of the Galaxy is one hot-shot. He is known for his leadership qualities, and more than that, his foolishness(the fun he creates). Also known as Peter Quill, the character is half Terran(half human). The character was portrayed by Chris Pratt in the Guardians of the Galaxy movie which premiered in 2014.
The Joker is a character who is immensely famous for his wicked sense of humor, of course, is one of best super villains of all time. I expected a much better ranking for him, but nevertheless he’s the only supervillain in our list. The character was portrayed by several actors like Jack Nicholson and Heath Ledger and their portrayal won them many accolades. He will be next seen in the DCEU movie Suicide Squad played by Jared Leto.
The son of Odin made his presence felt in the list and he was worthy enough to be here. The Marvel character is also known as the God of Thunder. He wields the mighty Mjolnir (hammer). Marvel found out their perfect guy Chris Hemsworth who has played the character in many MCU movies.
The merc with a mouth was never to be missed and here he is to please us all. Also known by his alter-ego Wade Wilson, is one-of-a-kind. The upcoming movie Deadpool will be the character’s first solo movie and he is being played by Ryan Reynolds.
James Logan, also known as Wolverine, is mutant with some really killing superpowers. If you know Hugh Jackman then there’s no need for you to have an introduction. The only thing that itches him is “PATIENCE”(Weak). The character has a huge fan following.
4: IRON MAN
I figured he’d be favourite of enough to be in the top 3 but interestingly, others were successful enough to outsmart him. Tony Stark is a billionaire who has some suits of armour built by himself. The character is played by Robert Downey Jr. who looks like the perfect fit for Iron Man.
Our cool New York neighbor is here!! Peter Parker was bitten by a web-crawler and thus, he became one. He is one of the most famous characters in comic-book history. The character was formerly played by Tobey Maguire, then by Andrew Garfield, and will now be played by Tom Holland in the upcoming summer blockbuster Captain America: Civil War.
Often regarded as an alien, Clark Kent aka Kal-El is still a favourite of many. The ambitious superhero is an iconic DC character. Do I really need to say any more about him? Superman has been played by George Reeves, Christopher Reeve, Dean Cain, Tom Welling, Brandon Routh, and most recently by Henry Cavil in Man of Steel.
Alfred Pennyworth was the primary source for the list I assume because his adoptive son, Bruce Wayne appears to be the winner all the way. The Dark Knight is a superhero who mainly operates in his fictional home city, Gotham. The Dark Knight Trilogy was a successful one for this character, as each movie in it was highly praised by the critics as well the audiences. The role was played by Christian Bale who handed over the legacy to Ben Affleck for the DCEU. Previously Batman has been played by Adam West, Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, and George Clooney. I also liked George Clooney as Batman, I don’t know why his portrayal went unnoticed.
