15 Most Unfair Characters from Comics with Too Much Power: Our favourite superheroes or supervillains tend to have flaws. Any comic book character who has endured for a time can be seen being built up, destroyed, rebuilt, destroyed again, rebuilt again, and so on in an infinite cycle that reveals their biggest flaws and reveals how tenuously they cling to the notion of heroism even as they are brutally thrashed. Because heroes occasionally fall short. They aren’t powerful enough.

Well, this list isn’t about them, so, yeah. These superheroes and supervillains can boast of strength on an Earth-shattering, even cosmic scale, even though they may have flaws and even obvious vulnerabilities. Here are the top 15 most powerful superheroes and supervillains, most of them have valid justifications. If Superman were a deconstructed angst-ball with crippling mental illness whose very existence imperilled the Earth, The Sentry would be Marvel’s Superman.

The Sentry

He resembles Henry Cavill’s Superman but with longer hair and more vibrant clothing. The Sentry was introduced into the comics as a part of a significant occasion, which depicted him leading a typical life after being seemingly erased from history. In a strange twist, it was revealed that the Sentry was a close friend of several important Marvel heroes, with a list of accomplishments that bordered on the absurd, including helping X-Man Angel conquer his fear of heights and transforming the Hulk into a force for good.

Superman

Superman has more than once faced his match, but in comparison to just about every other hero and a bad guy on Earth, he is still at the top of the chart. With his raw power, he easily outclasses even extremely strong people, and when strength is insufficient, he possesses a full arsenal of additional abilities to make up for any shortfalls.

Martian Manhunter

Strength, flight, and durability are the usual set, but MM also possesses a variety of somewhat off-kilter abilities that prepare him for almost every circumstance. These include shape-shifting, regeneration, density phasing, and occasionally, the ability to become invisible. With the ability to change his vision to see the world in multiple spectrums and generally possessing more senses than humans, his senses are on a level with those of Superman.

Professor X

The X-Men comics and films have long been engaged in a protracted conflict with a significant barrier. Not Magneto, I assure you. That challenge would be Professor Charles Xavier, who is so incredibly powerful that, if he so desired, he could turn off the brains of half the earth.

Thor

The character played by Chris Hemsworth may seem a little more approachable (haha! ), but the one from the comics is a true beast who has to continually get along with all these soft-hearted people. The god of thunder can brag of endless stamina, hyper-enhanced senses, and immense strength, enough to topple buildings with a gentle push. He is also almost invulnerable, able to heal from any injury, and even resistant to magic. However, these abilities are simply not enough for him.

Phoenix/Jean Grey

Marvel undoubtedly has a lot of cosmically endowed heroes who just serve to make everyone else look stupid by comparison, even if their universe is allegedly more grounded than DC’s. Next up is Phoenix, also known as Jean Grey with the Phoenix Force (sometimes a villain, but let’s ignore that). Their shared history has grown over time to the point that Jean Grey is the Phoenix rather than just being possessed by a dark cosmic entity.

Goku

Goku has abilities that are easily categorized as super, and he is unquestionably a good guy. He has more strength than the ordinary person, and he manages to save the world regularly. But hold on, is he truly deserving of being included on a list of overpowered heroes? Almost every significant antagonist that Goku encounters is superior to him: he loses to Raditz, Vegeta is stronger than him, Freiza is defeated by him (via Saiyan ex Machina), Cell is unbeatable, and he only defeats Majin Buu with the help of everyone on Earth (and even then, the Dragon Balls wouldn’t have saved him).

Dr. Manhattan

Doctor Manhattan is essentially a smarter, more nihilistic version of Superman who is capable of reforming himself after any wound. His additional abilities are virtually endless and include time travel, teleportation, mass destruction, complete control over his biology (including phasing, making clones, and having horrible abs), and energy manipulation.

Nate Grey

Nate Grey has been said to as the pinnacle telekinetic, one of many shell-shocked, freedom-fighting, from a nightmare dystopia children that Scott Summers has not yet had (and never will, because of comics). Although he was biologically the son of Scott and Jean Grey, Mr. Sinister’s genetic manipulation during his conception allowed him to acquire superhuman powers that, according to legend, would eventually burn out due to their immense intensity.

Franklin Richards

Mind you, Franklin Richards has never used his powers because they have been latent and unreachable for the majority of his life. However, he conceals power that places him above Omega level and puts him on par with (or even above) the Phoenix and Galactus himself. This power attracts the attention of the most powerful beings in the cosmos.

The Silver Surfer

The Silver Surfer isn’t your typical superhero; he primarily acts as a sort of proto-Dr Manhattan who muses over his place in the cosmos while possessing the ability to obliterate an entire solar system. Despite first landing a job as Galactus’ herald, he quickly became weary of showing up on different worlds and giving them seven days to leave because a cosmic giant with a serious case of the munchies was about to tuck into their planet.

Squirrel Girl

Okay, I admit it—Squirrel Girl most likely couldn’t destroy a planet. She is unable to bend reality’s fabric, travel across time, or control black holes. Her inventor didn’t even have the courtesy to endow her with real super-duper strength, the kind that would allow her to smash through steel doors. That has become a superhero standard at this point.

The Homelander

This comics character was created by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson. Homelander is a supervillain in the comic book series “The boys”. He is also considered as the most powerful and ruthless character in comics world. The powers of Homelander include super strength, heat vision, flight, durability, and enhanced vocal cords.

The Hulk

Super strength is one of the most striking powers, thus many heroes have it. Super-strong humans are simply a magnified version of the people we admire in real life who have the raw strength to carry airplanes behind them or perform push-ups while having people on their backs. The hulk first appeared in comics world in 1962 (The Incredible Hulk). Due to exposure to gamma rays he got his superhuman powers.

Shazam

Until you encounter Shazam/Captain Marvel, Superman may have the moniker “boy scout,” and be known as the defender of the American way and the sunny side of justice. He genuinely is a silly child, therefore there’s a fairly solid reason why he acts like one. Billy Batson turns into Shazam by saying the magic word SHAZAM. Before Marvel Comics became involved, Shazam was known as Captain Marvel.
