I have no doubt you all have your pick, and you can argue to death about how he/she is the best superhero ever. Because we don’t want you to die, we’re sharing a study (yes it is scientific somehow) that pits superheroes against each other based on how well-equipped they are.
The result: the best superhero.
Let’s cut to the chase, and I’m sorry Batman fans, but it looks like Supes is on top. The study says:
Seven years of student-led research into superheroes between 2009-2016 suggests Superman could be the best-equipped superhero of all, with a number of abilities including the ‘Super Flare’ attack and possession of high density muscle tissue.
To be fair, though, Batman doesn’t really have superpowers, so…
Others who performed well in this superpower showdown:
Wolverine, Thor and Mystique are also in the upper-tier of superheroes, having accelerated regenerative abilities, high energy output and being capable of gene manipulation.
Here’s the complete chart the students used.
