10 Strongest Human Characters in DC Comics
DC Comics is full of super strong and powerful characters. Some of the superheroes have an edge over other superheroes as they come from some other planet or galaxies. While there are heroes who hail from some superior race or species which makes them more powerful compared to their Earth counterparts. However, the DC Comic has a fair share of human heroes too. Some of these characters have received godly powers or status by some means. While few are raw humans who have adapted themselves and almost appear as superhumans. So, here are 10 Strongest human characters in DC comics listed in no order of preference.
10 Strongest Human Characters in DC Comics
The first name in our list of strongest human characters in DC Comics is ‘Batman’. We know that the Bat isn’t the strongest character in the list. But when we talk about raw human skills and abilities very few will even come close to the vigilante. The man has no superpowers, magical or mythical powers, he takes on any opponent just with the help of his raw human skills, intelligence and abilities. Batman has trained himself for years and has reached a point where he’s far more superior than most humans (mentally, physically and emotionally).
The Champion of Kahndaq ‘Black Adam’ is one of the most powerful characters of the DC comics. Many may not consider him suitable for the list but the fact remains that Adam is a human who has attained Godly powers from the Wizards through some mythical gem/stone. The man is still a human but can even destroy the God like beings by his immense powers.
Doctor Fate is another extremely powerful DC superhero and is one of the founding members of JSA (Justice Society of America). Fate has mastered the art of playing brain games through his experience. The Doctor can detect the future with the help of his helmet. His helmet also provides him powers like teleportation, invisibility, power projections and creating illusions. All these power & ability combined with experience makes Doctor Fate one of the most skilled superheroes in the battle ground.
If we talk about raw human strength then very few comics characters come close to Bane’s brute strength. The man literally broke Batman’s back with his brute strength. The DC character is possessed with a strength and physique which can scare any opponent. The man’s appearance is less like a human and more like a monster. Bane definitely deserves to be on the list of strongest human characters in DC Comics.
Shazam is arguably the strongest wizard in the DC Universe. Like Black Adam, adding Shazam may seem unfair to many. As he’s a demigod-like figure in the comics. However, Shazam’s identity and origin as human can’t be discounted. He’s a normal human who’s a wizard and has access to some of the most deadly powers in the DC comics. Many even consider him as the strongest DC comics hero.
As the name suggests the ‘Karate Kid’ is a character who depends on martial arts to fight against his opponents. However the DC character isn’t a normal martial artist. Val Armorr aka Karate Kid has mastered almost all the styles of martial arts not just from the present but also from the future. As he’s from the 31st century so he possesses almost all the knowledge of martial arts present till the 31st century. His knowledge, expertise and exposure to so many styles of martial arts gives him an edge over any opponent.
The Joker is one of the most iconic characters in not just the DC Universe but in the whole comics world. Joker is a sadist character who has gone through a lot and deals with mental health issues. However, the man’s evil and unpredictable acts leave us with little to no empathy. Talking about his strength and abilities, you can just say he’s the mirror image of Batman. He’s very similar to Batman but he’s just on the other side of the fence.
Kate Kane aka Batwoman is almost a replica of Batman or we say a female version of Batman, when it comes to powers and abilities. Kane was inspired by the Batman and this led her to choose the path of becoming a vigilante. Like her role model ‘Batman’ Kate has also worked a lot on her skills. The Batwoman is a well trained & skilled martial artist with great detective skills and intelligence.
When someone is given the name of ‘Mr. Terrific’ you need to understand that man possesses some special abilities. Michael Holt truly deserves the title of ‘Mr. Terrific’ because of his special abilities & capabilities. Holt is considered to be the 3rd smartest man in the world. And that’s not it, Michael is also an Olympic-level athlete and has command of different styles of martial arts. Michael Holt can terrify any opponent with his physical and mental strength.
Oliver Queen aka Green Arrow is an ace archer and is believed to be the best archer in the world. Apart from archery skills the man goes under intense training to maintain a physical and mental level that is almost the peak of human capabilities. Green Arrow is also good in hand to hand combat. Many even consider Green Arrow as an advanced version of his Marvel Counterpart ‘Hawkye’. So according to you, who’s the better between the two?
