Top 5 Superheroes


Who's a better Spider-Man?

1. Spider-Man

He’s got fun and cool powers, but not on the god-like level of Thor. A normal guy who got bit by a spider test experiment (My worst nightmare) with girl troubles and family problems, all of which contribute to why I love as much as I do. Even though his tragic story of his parents and his Uncle Ben dying, he never stopped giving up and saving the people of New York from the mad genius of Doctor Octopus to the insane Green Goblin.

It's fair to say that in the movie world Spider-Man has also a tough time. Being face-to-face with his Uncles killer (Sandman), or finding out one of his childhood friends has gone completely insane and turns into the Green Goblin. I do prefer Andrew Garfield over Toby Maguire even though Toby has had his fair share of villains, Andrew suffered the death of his girlfriend caused by his childhood friend Harry Osborn. At the end of The Amazing Spider-Man it left me in suspense whether they'll make a third movie and Sinister six movie or complete scrap the third movie and replace Andrew and make the Sinister Six movie.

2. Wolverine

Wolverine is the tortured samurai of Marvel heroes. His rough attitude and animal instincts have made him a pleasantly abrasive presence in any story he pops up in -- and he has popped up in quite a few over the years. He’s an X-Man, an Avenger, and a champion to young mutants fighting to survive in a world that hates and fears them.

With a healing factor and an unbreakable adamantium skeleton, he’s virtually immortal, and he uses his gifts to fight all manner of evil villains and personal demons from his past. What sets him apart as a hero is his willingness to cross the line. He takes the burden from others and puts it on his already-heavy shoulders, doing whatever it takes to save the day. He’s the best at what he does, and with three razor-sharp claws on each hand, it’s plain to see what that is.

3. Black Panther

As a man, T'Challa is the king of Wakanda, and as the superhero Black Panther, he gets his powers from being the King of the Dead. On top of being a peerless tactician and a bonafide genius, he’s a force to be reckoned with in hand-to-hand combat, probably because he has really sharp claws. He often chooses to walk his own path, turning down membership to the Avengers, and there have even been times when he's clashed with other heroes in order to protect his country. But despite being a lone wolf... er... cat, he always shows up when justice needs to be dished out.

4. Blade

A half human, half vampire hybrid possessing all of their strengths but none of their weaknesses, Blade has made a living fighting the undead. Blade has used his specific expertise and tremendous physical gifts to aid many heroes in the fight against evil. Pretty much, if you've got a supernatural monster threat, Blade is the one you call. Though immune to weaknesses like sunlight and silver, Blade's bloodlust remains ever present, the hero forced to make an ever-conscious decision not to give in to his cravings. Despite these struggles, Blade remains very much in tune with his humanity, using his remarkable gifts to rid the world of things that go bump in the night.

5. Thor

There’s no questioning Thor’s place amongst the elite pantheon of Marvel heroes. The son of Odin and heir to Asgard, Thor has long been a champion of the downtrodden, whether he’s smashing frost giants on Jotunheim or battling alongside the Avengers on Midgard. Possessor of the mighty Mjolnir, a magic hammer of devastating power, Thor’s remarkable strength is outshone only by his unwavering belief in humanity. The first into battle and the last to leave, this founding Avenger will let nothing get in his way when it comes to protecting the innocent. And if something does get in his way, well, that's what the hammer is for.
