I think the Flash and Joker are about neck and neck."

Superman, Batman, Robin, Wonder Woman.

Robin just because for the most part he goes hand in hand with Batman.

Aquaman! No, I lie. People I talked to didn't know who he was and were astonished when I told them he was in the Justice League.

Agreed.

I wouldn't count Robin not because he isn't his own Character but it's purely by extension. Kinda like Lois is that for Supes. I for one didn't know Nightwing was the original Robin till much later and I am betting I am not alone on that.

Captain America(insert middle finger hither.).

But seriously? I'd say Batman is going to be the one that people instantly flock to, that they instantly recognize. I think he is higher then Superman.

Bat-Man, Super-Man, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman and MAYBE Etrigan(?)

It's funny..

They sell the Logo T-shirts You'd be surprised how many people know then Green Lantern logo, if not the character itself

I'd go with Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and it's a toss up between Flash and Robin

Me: I'll give you a hint: It starts with Green.

I gotta say... Superman and Lois Lane, and Batman and Robin. They have always been paired up in so many different forms of media you can't separate them. I think WonderWoman and the Flash may be more famous, but I don't know if they would be remembered from DC Comics.

Superman

Wonder Woman

Batman

Joker
