Top 5 Superheroes of All Time: #5, #4, #3. Administrating your own brand of vigilante justice, through the use of superior gadgetry and super powers, is exactly why every guy is a huge fan of Superheroes. Which superhero is the best? This week we are going to rank them. We used the responses we received from the DOM Twitter Squadron to help decide the list.
Furthermore, I have examined this debate since I was 3 year old. First, we are going to define just what a superhero is. A superhero must have some form of superpower. Whether this is some alien genetic power, or you’re rich and decide instead of hanging out at your local bar and sleeping with models that you would prefer to create these top secret inventions that give you an edge. Either way, you MUST have an ability, whether man-made or not, that makes you better. Thus The Ninja Turtles for instance, are not really superheroes. Granted they are awesome, but they just have karate taught by a talking rat. I need something more exceptional. To reiterate, just being a mutated karate turtle is not enough for you be a superhero in the DOM book. The list:
5) Thor- Thunderstruck has to be his theme song. Not only is it badass that you’re the Thunder God of Norse mythology, but hell, you can fly and really dominate all aspects of Earth. This Asgard Avenger has a hammer with dwarf power, and everyone knows that dwarfs are the Amish of the mystical world. Now I understand that Thor can be defeated in his own realm (movie reference), but he is almost impossible to beat on Earth. The man sends shockwaves through the ground with a hammer and flies around the world hooking up with Natalie Portman. He basically is the god version of Bob Villa going around and smashing and fixing just about anything. Give the man some flannel shirts and he might be the greatest Great Outdoor Games competitor ever!
4) Iron Man- Listen, I know he does not have any natural human powers, but as I stated before he has some serious man-made ones. Outside of the fact that he has an AC/DC theme song (noticing a trend here), Iron Man can fly, shoot plasma from his hands, and is a certifiable genius. He is basically part machine, thus making him the best cyborg-humanoid money and intellect can buy. Not only is he a one man army, Iron Man is so powerful that he can single-handedly resurrect one-time dead on arrival Hollywood careers.
3) Spiderman- Now what I like about Peter Parker is the fact that he is the everyday guy turned superhero. Yeah the guy takes photos and then dominates. He is the only one on the list that is not uber rich or retains some alien or godlike powers. Peter Parker become Spidey the old school way. He gets the shit bit out of him from a spider. It’s pretty much every underprivileged kid’s dream. Yeah I may not be able to fight off super villains by traveling the world learning multi faceted forms of martial arts, but I get bit by spiders and other tainted miscellaneous bugs all the time. There is a chance.
Since we couldn’t decide between our top 2, Batman or Superman, we are going to send it once again to the DOM Twitter Squadron to see who gets the edge. The pools are open for the next 24 hours so check out our Twitter feed or our Facebook page to make your voice heard!
