The 25 Most Powerful Superheroes of All Time

Posted by on December 14, 2011

Ever since Superman stepped onto the scene it seems as though gurus and fanboys have been at each others throats about which superhero is the most powerful. Don’t believe us? Just scroll down to the comments (if there aren’t any it only means they were so bad that we were forced to moderate them). And if you’re one of the fanboys, remember – breathe. At any rate, here are the 25 most powerful superheroes of all time.



Half-human and half-atlantean, Namor the sub-mariner was one of the earliest superheroes in the Marvel universe. The stereotypical antihero, his short fuse and long list of superpowers would make him a formidable foe.


Captain Marvel

Whenever he utters the phrase “shazam”, young Billy Batson becomes one of the universe’s most versatile superheroes. His list of powers include the wisdom of Solomon, the strength of Hercules, the stamina of Atlas, the power of Zeus, the courage of Achilles, and the speed of Mercury. Known as “Earth’s mightiest mortal” Captain Marvel is a force to be reckoned with.



Unlike other superheroes Firestorm is actually two people that when combined create a superbeing with the ability to rearrange matter on the molecular level. If it weren’t for the fact that he were limited to non-organic material he would probably be a lot closer to #1.


Iron Man

Although Iron Man has had his weak moments, his armor has proven itself worthy against the likes of Thor, Hulk, and other superheroes on this list. Also, given that he is constantly evolving we wouldn’t be surprised to see him continue crawling up the power charts.


Aqua Man

Another Atlantean, Aquaman’s powers have at times been underestimated. Anyone that was born in a place capable of literally crushing even the most advanced of human technology is probably going to end up somewhere on this page.
