Who's the best Superhero?


Well, that was fun

I'm testing the Question Thread functionality, and figuring out how it works, and thought this would be a fun way to do it.

Each reply should be a nomination for a Superhero and why you think they're the best (whatever 'best' means to you). Each Superhero can only have one nomination, so it's strictly first-come first-served.

Don't post anything else in this thread. Just a nomination for a Superhero that has not yet been nominated. I'll delete anything else.

People can then use the upvote and downvote functionality to vote for the Superheroes.

What fun, eh?

SUPERMAN! The hero who popularized the superhero genre and started many of the genre's tropes. A hero who is good through and through.

Namor, the Sub-Mariner.

1. He's not Aquaman.

2. Arguably the first anti-hero in comics; long before the Sopranos, even before 1940, Namor was the jerk you rooted for.

3. He's not Aquaman.

4. He's obscure, but not so obscure that you're obviously trying to be obscure.

5. He's not Aquaman.

6. Like the McRib, Namor shows up occasionally to everyone's delight, and then disappears leaving you wanting more.

7. He's not Aquaman.

8. Namor fought for the environment and the downtrodden before it was cool, and he didn't care what you thought about it. But not in some terrible, Aquaman fashion. Because, in case I didn't mention it- he's not Aquaman.


The Wasp. Janet van Dyne - founding Avenger, second longest serving team leader. Whether tiny, normal, or giant size, she gets things done.

Kobold Stew

Last Guy in the Airlock


Draws on the things that make Marvel heroes so distinctive: tortured soul who wants rid of his "powers"; an alter ego that is different from his human identity; challenges the power-fantasy trope; an update of Mr Hyde for the nuclear age.

Able to be used for humour or horror, tales of deep human friendship or cosmic/psychadelic adventure.
