I originally planned to do my top 10 comic book heroes, but realized that almost all of them were DC. Therefore, I decided to split the DC and Marvel characters into two different blog posts. Sorry Marvel fans, I’ve always enjoyed the DC characters more. I’m not giving any specific reasons behind my choices since that could make this blog post a bit longer than it needs to be. However, I will be more than happy to debate anyone in the comments. Ha.

Here’s the list:

10. Black Canary

9. Aquaman

8. Wonder Woman

7. Martian Manhunter

6. Robin (I actually think Tim is probably the best in this role)

5. Batgirl/Oracle (Barbara is awesome in two different personas)

4. Nightwing (Dick is a much better character here than as Robin, IMO)

3. Superman

2. The Flash (Wally West in particular…though I do love some Walter West)

1. Batman

Honorable Mentions: Plastic Man, Green Arrow, Green Latern (Kyle Rayner), Big Barda

Who are your favorite DC superheroes?

    Hmm...the majority of these seem to be associated with the Justice League. That's not a bad thing.

    I've also tended to prefer DC to Marvel. Here are some of the ones I would put on my list, keeping in mind that I've not kept up with comics much in the last decade or so. These are in no particular order.

    Travis Morgan, the Warlord.
    The Golden Age Green Lantern.
    Dr. Midnight.
    Green Arrow.
    The Creeper.
    The Spectre.
    Adam Strange.

  2. I guess a good bit are JLA...though it seems you have a few from the JSA. ha. I guess almost everyone has been on either team at some point or another.

    Hawkman and Firestorm are definitely good calls.

  3. Well 4 of them are just from Batman alone - not that I am surprised in the least.
