This list is an attempt to rank the characters of the main comic publishers including Marvel Universe, DC Universe, Wildstorm , Image, Top Cow, Aspen MLT, and others. Unlike the other rankings ( Marvel and DC rankings) it has only the characters that actually appear regularly. This list is not perfect and should be seen more as a guide than anything else. Also, the rankings don't necessarily reflect how characters would fare in a one-on-one fight. The list really only takes into account the general power levels of characters, not necessarily how they would use their powers, so while a very intelligent character might actually be able to beat a more powerful character higher up, that doesn't automatically make them a higher rank. This is a more accurate list than the power rankings but it is still not perfect so take it with a grain of salt. If you feel a change should be made, discuss it on this page's board before you edit this page.
