10 Strongest Characters From DC Comics:
Superman is the superhero we’re all familiar with – we’ve read about him, watched his films and played his games. He is the perfect stereotype of the hero – with his outlandish attire, superpower abilities of flying, his good nature inclined to save mankind from its menaces and more. He first appeared in Action Magazines, and then had a whole new series of comics dedicated to him.
Batman, alias Bruce Wayne, is a DC superhero who first appeared in the Detective Comics. He enters into the superpowered world after witnessing his parents’ death at the hands of a criminal. He vows vengeance and adopts a bat like persona to fight evil. His archenemy is Joker, who is a worthy opponent. Indeed, batman is one of the most well fleshed out as well as most powerful DC characters to ever exist.
Lucifer is an adaptation of the Biblical fallen angel. Even though he majorly appears as a supporting character in ‘The Sandman’, he is essentially one of the most powerful characters in the pantheon. He became so popular that a spin off of ‘The Sandman’ was published, in which he was the protagonist.
The Flash is one of the most innovative characters of DC, with the ability to be faster than light itself. In fact, he can think, move and run with extraordinary speed, which allows him to violate laws of physics that apply to everyone. So you know how powerful he can be. His debut appearance was in the Flash Golden Age Comics, and his popularity has soared ever since.
Wonder Woman is a beautiful Amazonian princess with warrior like abilities. She is the daughter of Queen Hippolyta, and her father is the mighty Greek God Zeus. She is the mightiest of all Olympian Gods, and a power to reckon with. Several movies and TV shows have her as the lead, including the movie of the same name starring Gal Gadot.
Joker is a supervillain – and a supremely formidable one. He is depicted as a psychopath, with a sadistic and sarcastic humouristic personality. Unlike superheroes, he has no superpowers or magical abilities. However he is a genius chemical engineering, and hence it is his intelligence that gives him an edge over the superheroes. Although presented as evil, his backstory reveals that he is merely a product of his circumstances.
Martian Manhunter is one of the seven original members of the Justice League, and one of the mightiest superheroes in the DC world. He debuted in the Detective Comics series as a green skinned extraterrestrial humanoid from Mars. The story in which he featured, ‘The Strange Experiment of Dr Erdel’, follows Martian Manhunter as he tells Erdel about his true identity. This shock blinds Erdel and blocks all paths of Martian Manhunter back to Mars. The Martian Manhunter possesses superpowers like flight, super-hearing, telepathy and atomic vision.
Aquaman is a fictional DC superhero who is half a human and half an Atlantean. He is a founder of the Justice League and an indispensable part of the Adventure Comics. Plus, he is the King of Atlantis, with a hefty responsibility of a mighty kingdom. He has superhuman strength and telepathic control over aquatic life. What makes him super powerful is his ability to survive on land as well as in water – an ability that no other superhero in the DC world possesses.
Green Arrow is the archer hero of the DC universe, who is often romantically linked with Black Canary. His original name is Oliver, and he is a wealthy businessman who discovers that he has skill in archery. He also uses specialized arrows which are coated with deadly substances like glue and flash grenade. The Green Arrow uses his archery talents to overthrow criminals in Seattle.
Black Canary is one of the best superheroines to ever exist. She was initially created as a supporting character for the Flash comics, but soon became popular enough to become a superheroine in her own right. Endowed with a black leather jacket and fishnet stockings, she works to infiltrate criminal organizations and break them apart from within. She is linked professionally and personally to Green Arrow.
