DC Power Grid

If anyone could post a power grid based off of what they know, or from a ready made power grid. Not of all of the people in DC necessarily but just of the semi-mainstream people, etc.  That'd be awesome, thanks.

Cool that's awesome. I didn't know Wonder Woman was that fast. I didn't think she could even dream of keeping up with Superman on the ground or the sky. But thanks a lot. What about Captain Marvel? What would he be? This is what I think: 
Captain Marvel 
Intelligence- 70 
Strength- 91 
Speed- 85
Durability- 90
Energy Projection- 42
Fighting Skills- 75

Interestingly, we're in a process of making an extensive power grid for DC. Currently we're compiling evidence of feats for various DC characters here. Also, you can take a look at DC power rankings for an overall power level. It's not definite or completely accurate, but it's a start.

- Tier 14 - [Top Tier Hero/Villain]:


and there's this fan made one
 Street Fighters: Individuals who are not powered, they rely solely on their own skills with some help from technology. The greatest ability they posses is prep, knowledge which can allow them to defeat foes that out-class them greatly.  Example; Bat Family 
Low-level: Skills allow them to fight crime, and make them a threat. Mild tech available yet normally work with a partner of some sort. Examples; Damien Wayne (Robin),  
Mid-Level: More expienced and skilled than Low-level fighters, also have better tech and are over-all more effective. Better one are a threat even to Mid-Level Meta's. Examples; Mia Darden (Speedy), Tim Drake (Red Robin), Anarchy, Lynx, Stephanie Brown (Batgirl) 
Top Tier: Master's of their chosen skill. Have some of the best Tech around, and normally are great strategist and well versed in Prep. If prepared for a confrontation can potentially beat anyone, if they have knowledge of their weakness. Examples; Bruce Wayne, Dick Grayson (Current Batman), Oliver Queen (Green Arrow), Ra's Al Ghoul, Ted Grant (Wildcat), Jason Todd (Red Hood), Talia Ghoul, Thomas Elliot (Hush),Selina Kyle (Catwoman), Lex Luthor 
King of the Meta-Brawls Metas: Possesing a power of some kind, or something that makes them superhuman. They are capable of amazing feats, and threats to most other clases on their power alone.  
Low-Level: Possessing just one type of power, such as telekinesis. Though it doesn't have to be something truly amazing, they can also have access to tech that makes them superhuman. Based on circumstances can even lose to Mid-level or Low-Level Street fighters, being slightly higher than Mid Street Fighters, and a lil below or equal to Top Tier. Examples; Waylon Jones (Killer Croc), Poison Ivy, Cyborg, Beast Boy, Wonder Twins, Risk, Slade Wilson, Ravager, Kid Eternity  
Mid-Level: Having multiple powers, or a broader power-set, such as having Telekinesis and Telepathy or a higher level of Telekinesis. They may also have access to powerful artifacts in addition to their own abilities. Their more diverse power sets make them bigger threats. Examples; Terra, Hot Spot, Kid Devil, Hawkman, Blue Devil, Cyclone, Citizen Steel 
Prime Meta: Having multiple powers, they are almost planetary threats, though they either lack the power, or necessary skill to do so. Most could destroy a city if they cut loose. Examples;  Cassie Sandsmark (Wonder Girl), Grant Emrson (Damage), Bart Allen (Kid Flash), Cosmic Boy, Lightning Lad, Virgil Hawkins (Static), Courtney Whitmore (Stargirl), Jay Garrick  (Flash I), Red Tornado (normal)
Emotional Lords: Most Diverse Heralds Herald: A planetary threat. They can change the world with some effort, and in some case many. Most have multiple powers, though some are only extremely versed in one. They are forces to be reckoned with being about half-way up the power scale. They are the more poweful heroes and villians.  
Low-Level: Quite powerful, they can challenge any of the Metas or Street Levelers on power alone, though sometimes a lack of skill or knowledge can loose them the fight.  This level normally has multiple powers at high enough levels to pose a serious threat. They aren't that much more powerful than a Prime Meta, just far more diverse. Some have powers that rival top Heralds, but it being their only power lowers their overall ranking.  Example; Wally West (Flash III), Barry Allen (Flash II) Kon-El (Superboy),   Obsidian, Jade, Professor Zoom, Doctor Polaris, Hercules, Carol Fenris (Star Sapphire)
Mid-Level: Stronger, or more skilled then Low-Level Heralds, they have a good chance of beating a High Herald if they don't hold back, yet can loose to Low-levels or even Metas and Top Tiers well preped enough. Examples; Wonder Woman, Firestorm, Zatanna,  Earth Born Angel, Kalibak, Lightray, Mantis, Brimstone, Rookie Lanterns and most un-named Lanterns (all 7 corps), random Kryptonians, Martians, 
High Heralds: They are definitely planetary threats, capable of facing colossul foes, most of them hold the potential for more power. In most confrontations with people weaker than them, they are walking away the Victor. Examples; Kal-El (Superman), Billy Batson (Captain Marvel), Black Adam, FreDdy Freeman (Shazam),  Veteran Lanterns (Jordan, Rayner, Gardner, Stewart, Kilowog, ect) Sinestro, Brainiac, General Zod, Martian Manhunter, Atrocitus, Larfleez, Orion, Apollo, Captain Atom 
Teambusters: These are individuals capable of taking teams of Heralds on at a single time. At their worst showings they are simply High Heralds, at their best they tear through them. They are capable of challenging Skyfathers, even defeating them under certain situations. Their power-levels are subject to the whims of the writers. Examples; Sodam Yat (Ion), Sun-Dipped Superman, Doomsday, Mongul I, Mongul II with Rings, Despero, The Doctor, Death Gods, Ominar Synn, Takion, Fernus, Swamp Thing, The Firestorm Eelemental (an his counterparts), Doctor Fate, Helspont,  Hourman III, Darkseid (Normal and Weak Showings) 
Skyfather Power unleashed 
Skyfathers: Beings of Immense cosmic power. In many cases they are responsibly for empowering Heralds, or are responsible for controlling entire corners of power in the DCU. Such as Magic, Elements, the Emotional Spectrum, or the 4th/5th World.  
Gods: While Demi-Gods, or lesser Gods are limited and normally rank among Heralds and Teambusters, these are their much more powerful bretheren. They have a multitude of abilties and are immensely powerful. Examples; Zamarons, The Controllers
Pantheon Lords: The more powerful members of their respective groups of Gods. They have access to much greater abilities and powers. Can overcome Skyfathers if work together, normally a small magnitude weaker. Examples; Guardians of the Universe,Dr. Fate (fully powered), Zeus, Ares, Poseidon, Aphrodite, 
Skyfathers: Rulers of their respective sphere's of influence, or most powerful and influential member. They have the greatest share of abilities and are truly something to be wary of. Examples;  Ganthet, Athena,  Darkseid (fully powered), Lord's of Hell (Neron, Satanus, Lady Blaze) outside their realms,  Highfather Izaya, Lord Marvel, Shazam the Wizard,  Archangels (Uriel/ Raphael/  Sarauquel / Raguel/ ect)

Can't find the Unoficial rankings anymore. Has this been moved or removed? If removed why? It wasn't 100% accurate, but I valued it as good reference.

This list seems largely correct but i think there are a few mistakes.

I will mention a few that fits this case,there maybe a few more but i deal with the ones i know abit more.

Sun Dipped Superman should be tier 14,but if he is in tier 13,then so be it but seems to me to be in tier 14.just the in higher part.

Sodam Yat ( Ion )should be Tier 13 and maybe Superman prime one million. around tier 12.

Sinestro Corps War

In Green Lantern Corps #17, the Guardians, feeling that Kyle better serves the Corps as a Green Lantern, choose the Daxamite Sodam Yat as the new host for Ion. Witnessing the creation of the new Ion, Superman-Prime attacks him in the skies above New York. The pair are matched in terms of power until the fight moves into a nuclear power plant where Sodam Yat's Daxamite physiology causes him to be severely weakened by the lead present in the reactor. As he tries to escape the power plant, Ion is impaled with a lead rod by Prime. His powers diminished by lead poisoning, Prime beats Yat nearly to death.

So superman prime without the extra powers should be in the same boast with Sodam Yat.

Superman Prime (with the Monitor/Cosmic Armor) is really superman with Cosmic armor, not superman prime.

Unofficcial power grids don t count as geroea abilities vary from writer to writer. Any and all power measure ment is based on original character creator and writer ideals only. W kkn ich is why feats pictures dont work... you have to prove it by original character creators story lines...
