Among DC Characters.

Well in their heyday Extant, Imperiex and Parallax were up there.

#3 Edited by Supreme Marvel (11264 posts) - - Show Bio

They need to be human. Imperiex isn't one. And Parallax is a entity.

@Supreme Marvel: Well sorry. :p 
 
Then Extant.

No hard feelings :)

@Michael the Fly: Well, they are actually the same person
#8 Posted by Supreme Marvel (11264 posts) - - Show Bio

Also, no powers from other sources I.E Speed Force, A Lantern Ring, Magic etc.
They need to be a human with abiltites. I.E Black Canary etc.

True, I think Zoom might be on second place (I'm not the biggest DC fan).

@Michael the Fly: Yeah, he's pretty high up there.

If I am not mistaken he has a form of time control or something like that, definitely not a speed force user.

What I mean is, he gets his power from some where other than within himself. He wasn't born to have them like, Black Canary was.

@Supreme Marvel: So pretty much you just want most powerful mutant.
#17 Posted by Supreme Marvel (11264 posts) - - Show Bio

Well I guess. But DC calls them Metahumans.

That's good to know. But it was for the rest of the people as well. ::P

I'd vote for Firestorm above just about anyone else.  His powers are only limited by the compositional knowledge of his two component personas.

Superman Prime One Million 

#22 Posted by Supreme Marvel (11264 posts) - - Show Bio

He's Alien. Not human.

#23 Posted by Black Lantern Mar-vell (2040 posts) - - Show Bio

Plastic Man?
#24 Posted by Supreme Marvel (11264 posts) - - Show Bio

That's a possibility. Unless there's something about him I don't know.

#25 Posted by Kid_Omega_Prime (1252 posts) - - Show Bio

plastic man wasn't born with his powers. I think the logical person would be... Captain Comet. he is a metahuman and he was born with his powers.

Metamorpho

I've never actually thought about it before. It seems that most of DC's heavy hitters aren't technically metahumans, or their powers are too complicated to peg. Hell, looking at the justice league's main roster:

  • Superman - Alien
  • Martian Manhunter - Alien
  • Batman - Human
  • Flash - Human with access to the speed force
  • Wonder Woman - Goddess/powered by magic; whichever really applies
  • Lanterns - Power Ring

I feel like Aquaman might be up there? I would class him, and Atlanteans in general as meta-humans. The human-like Atlanteans I think are more a sub-species of metahumans. I'm pretty sure they can interbreed with Humans, so they are still human, and get their powers from their genes. Most of the powerful ones are from sorcery, but Aquaman is even special among his people, and it's his own enhanced abilities plus the telepathy. But if you don't count him because he comes from a race of powerful ones...then I don't really know. Most of them really do seem more in the wake of magic or "fell into" their powers.

Wally West

#29 Edited by Akindoodle (1021 posts) - - Show Bio

@serpent222: They can, Arthur himself is a half-breed if memory serves rightly. And so is Jackson Hyde (2nd Aqualad).

Would magic users (the ones with the innate ability) classify as metahumans? Because if they do, the Zataras and maybe Xanadu would rank pretty high up there

At some point hasn't "DC" (ie: any writer) referred to the whole lot of super-powered people as metahumans? (to draw the line between powered & non-powered beings on earth).

MARTIAN MANHUNTER!!!

Monarch, who, if I recall, had somewhat of a stalemate with Superboy-Prime, who had then absorbed the powers of a Guardian of the Universe (even though Monarch kinda essploded). Another would maybe be Captain Marvel. I read somewhere (sorry, I can't find the source) that when he held Shazam's spot on the Rock of Eternity, he was one of the most powerful people in the universe.
