The 25 Most Powerful Superheroes of All Time

Posted by , Updated on June 7, 2017

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. And check out our superheroes list of the 25 most powerful superheroes of all time.

Sentry

Sentry

A enigma of sorts, Sentry is so powerful that even he surprises himself with his own abilities at times. His primary weakness, however, is his fragile mind. Although he once wiped his own existence from the memory of every person and superhero in the universe, his personal mental issues are his downfall.

Silver Surfer

Silver Surfer

With this guy, the question is more of what can he not do than what he can. As a result of his ability to tap into the “power cosmic” he supposedly has access to a nearly unlimited amount of power. The only reason he doesn’t rank any higher is because of his inconsistency. Sometimes he seems to like he should be number one, two, and three while at other times we wonder if he should even be on this list. We just averaged the two.

Superman

Superman

Superman is one of the most well known and powerful DC superheroes. With only one weakness the Man of Steel is not fun to fight against. Although he isn’t in the #1 spot on our list he easily could be, especially since no one is completely sure of just how powerful Superman really is (he’s always holding back). Regardless, as one of the most respected superheroes in the universe this Kryptonian is the real OG.

Goku

Goku

Although for years it was Superman that set the standard for massively over powered superheroes, ever since “super sayain” became a household word Goku found his way somewhere to the top of the really powerful superheroes list – albeit a somewhat non-standard superhero at that. But seriously, here we have a character essentially constructed on the assumption that there is no upper power limit whatsoever.

Thor

A Marvel superhero, Thor is the Norse God of thunder. Thor is not only invincible in almost every sense of the word but he takes the meaning of “skilled warrior” to an entirely new level. Moreover, he has a hammer that gives him almost absolute control over space and time. In fact, this guy is so powerful that it could be a challenge to write a comic that involves him being in any believable amount of danger whatsoever.
