Posted by , Updated on May 24, 2018


Can you guess which are the most powerful superheroes of all time? Ever since Superman stepped onto the scene, it seems as though people everywhere have been debating the most powerful superheroes and villains. But as powerful as Superman is, is he THE strongest superhero? The amazing characters on this list can fly through the air, race across land, read your mind, or shatter your very existence. These superheroes have powers any of us would dream about but only the supernatural beings on this superheroes list are strong enough to wield this power. This is the definitive resource for the greatest superheroes of all time, so check out our list of the Most Powerful Superheroes of All Time!


Dr. Manhattan

Dr. Manhattan Comic

When it comes to pure, raw, unadulterated power, there are few people that come even close to the doctor. In fact, there is almost no defined limit to what he can do. The reason he is at #20 however, is due to his primary weakness (besides tachyons) – apathy. In spite of being able to annihilate essentially the entire universe, he just doesn’t care enough about much of anything and would prefer to be left alone.



Phoenix with her arms out and eyes glowing

As one of the most powerful telepaths in the universe, Jean Grey sometimes has trouble keeping her nearly unlimited mental powers in check. Professor X was even forced to construct psychic shields in her mind as a child in order to prevent her from fully realizing her power until she was mature enough to handle it on her own.


Captain Atom

Captain Atom Comic

Essentially a combination of Superman and the Silver Surfer, Captain Atom is sometimes seen as a second rate man-of-steel. His powers are formidable, however, with the ability to manipulate theoretically unlimited amounts of energy.



Comic Book Wolverine

Although Wolverine doesn’t have any of the typical superhero powers, it’s the intangibles that put him on the list. What he lacks in raw power he makes up for with pure fury and an epic complex backstory. And as we’ve seen with Dr. Manhattan, attitude is half the battle.


Mister Majestic

Mr Majestic Comic

As one of the most powerful superheroes in the Wildstorm universe, Mister Majestic bears a deliberate resemblance to Superman. With essentially all of his powers, we just couldn’t rank a copy above the man himself.
