It'll come down to:

Superman, Batman, Spider-Man, Wolverine

I'd then narrow that to Superman, Batman, Wolverine

With the way the films are going, it will most likely end up Batman vs Wolverine with Batman winning out.

this:

Superman employs his super powers out of necessity, not choice. He saves planes from going down because he can, not because he wants to. In his ideal world, Superman would be a farmer, like his adopted parents. He doesn't want to be Superman. He has to be Superman. Eric Thornton, Chicago Comics

Catwoman isn't a villian. Isn't she more like an anti-hero or something? A villian in the past yes, but not a villian now.

I think it will end up being Superman in the end.

Some of these are ridiculous, they should be about who would win in a fight, not popularity, I mean Thor would win Buffy and Phoenix would annihilate Spider-Man.

Also Hal vs. Ollie isn't the fairest thing either.

But I'd love to see a Wonder Woman/Spawn crossover though.

people like Catwoman and Punisher do not belong on hero list.

Because Kitty Pryde is from Deerfield, Ill. and it's a Chicago newspaper the article is from.


Anyway, it's gotta be Superman (even though I'm rootin for Cap). He is THE iconic super-hero. He possess all the superpowers people associate with super-heroes.

If you read the comments some voters posted it seems like many voted based on who they thought would win in a fight.

I read thngs like "Green lantern can create things as fast as he can think there is no way a guy with arrows could beat him"
