1. Superman

Universe: DC

Ah, Superman! What can I possibly tell you about him that you do not already know? Is there any need to argue on this? I mean, this is Superman! He is one of the very few heroes to have faced almost all kind of threats, from celestials, demi-gods, magicians, mutants, intergalactic beings you name it! He is known to have saved all of reality and even the multiverse on several occasions.

His power levels are limitless per se but limited only by his strong sense of morality which has kept him in check over the years, preventing him from becoming a super-powered evil tyrant. Because, when Superman turns evil, the whole universe trembles. He can do basically anything he wants. But my major let down of this amazing hero is his weakness to Green Kryptonite. However, He isn’t just the most powerful, he is the most everything.

And then there’s Superman Prime. This future version of Superman can do everything the modern Superman can but at an extreme level. As his story is told, Prime stayed in the earth’s sun for 15,000 years, giving himself a solar charge like nothing ever seen before.

His long visit to the sun gave him nigh-omnipotence, invulnerability, and the ability to create life and entire universes. But, till we get a full storyline on that version of Supe’s, let’s stick with our very own Daily Planet’s Clark Kent. Who is the most powerful superhero of all time.


2. Thor

Universe: Marvel

Thor is considered the most powerful Avenger, but not necessarily the strongest. Because they still have the Huk. But, nonetheless, Thor is far more powerful than any Avenger and can reach power levels that even Odin, his father, isn’t able to reach.

Now, one thing should be stated clearly is that Thor is not made powerful by his Hammer, Mjolnir. Rather, Mjolnir is just a tool given to Thor to help him channel his power. Thor is the god of thunder, son of Odin, and the Heir to the throne of Asgard.

When fused with the power of the Odin’s Force, Thor can match the same power levels as some celestials. But he is not just powerful, he can pack quite the punch too. He possesses godlike strength, above normal intelligence, superhuman speed, stamina, flight ability, durability, agility and reflexes, Invulnerability, senses, and lots more. He is the second most powerful superhero on the list.


3. Sentry

Universe: Marvel

The Sentry is almost on the same power level as Superman. He has proven himself to be one of the most powerful heroes in the MCU since his inception. Sentry has stated personally that the high overall level of his powers is comparable to that of a million exploding suns.

He possesses superhuman strength, speed, flight, senses, Invulnerability/Regeneration, Phasing/Intangible, Invisibility, telepathy, resurrection, shapeshifting, empathy, matter manipulation, etc. Sentry is the 3rd most powerful superhero on this list. Sentry is regarded as Marvel’s answer to DC’s Superman. And when compared to the Caped Kryptonian, the argument seems to reach an unending conclusion.


4. Doctor Strange

Universe: Marvel

To be able to do magic is awesome, but do you know what is more awesome than that? I’ll tell you what? To be able to do magic and become the master of the Dark Arts, the Sorcerer Supreme himself. Now, that’s more awesome. He is definitely one of Marvel’s most powerful superheroes. He is the protector of Earth against magical and mystical threats.

His suit is made up of two main relics, the Cloak of Levitation, and the Eye of Agamotto. He draws his power from the Eye of Agamotto and is the keeper of the Time stone, one of the 6 infinity stones. This is a breakdown of his abilities includes many such as Mastery of magic, Utilizes mystical artefacts, Cloak of Genius-level intellect, Skilled martial artist, Gifted physician, and surgeon. He is the 6th most powerful superhero ever created.


5. Captain Marvel

Universe: Marvel

Before she was rebirth as Captain Marvel, Carol Danvers was a United States pilot for the Airforce. However, when she got exposed to the explosion which resulted in her being transformed into Captain Marvel, she became one of the most powerful beings in all the universe.

Her power levels instantaneously grew without proportion, she possessed energy absorption and can magnify her powers, giving her the ability to discharge explosive blast and radiant energy from her fingers. Plus, Captain Marvel’s super-Binary form allows her to transform into an energy-manipulating state giving her the ability to lift weight up to a 100 tons, super flight ability, flaming hair, and eyes, which I think are just pretty cool.

She is dubbed an alien-hybrid superhero and is ranked as the 7th most powerful superhero of all-time.
