The 25 Most Powerful Superheroes Of All Time

Posted by , Updated on November 19, 2017


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 this question. But as powerful as Superman is he THE most powerful superhero? The answer might surprise you. Check out our superheroes list of the 25 most powerful superheroes of all time.




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.

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 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.




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.

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. You can see Thor in action in the new movie Thor: Ragnarok.
