The answer simply must be Benjamin J. Grimm, aka The Thing and here is why:

(1) He lost his desired love Susan Storm to Reed Richards.

(2) He became a grotesque rocky guy when the FF were changed by cosmic rays.

(3) Susan is the one who called him the terrible name "The Thing".

(4) He found a long-time girlfriend, Alicia Masters, only to have her fall in love almost 300 issues later with Johnny Storm and then marry him.

I agree that is sad but are normal human problems.

I would say Batman has the saddest history, No little kid should have their parents gunned down in front of them.

All of them are pretty sad, but Batman's was the saddest because he saw his own parents die right in front of him.

Parents dying is already sad enough.

Frank Castle saw his whole family lost but the guy was an adult, An adult will take death easier then a little kid would.

Its kind of hard to gauge i suppose. We all respond differently to different traumas, so what might be heartbreaking to one person might not be all that bad for another person. 
 
anyway, i have to think on things and i'll be back with my answer

All of them actually but Spider-man has had a crappy life. And getting you're parent shot in front of you or finding out that you are the last of an entire race of people from a dead world its pretty sad to me to.

Wow I'm surpised not to see more for the Hulk? Banner sees his mother die as a child. He is mentally instable, he found the woman of his dreams and couldn't even have sex because he would kill her. He is hated (feared) by everyone and when he did find someone he could love she gets killed while pregnant with his child. Not to mention he has had to fight everyone!

#25 Posted by mondo625 (7 posts) - - Show Bio

Why isn't the Flash on this list? Barry Allens life is pretty bad, Mother gets killed, Dad gets blamed. Falls in love only to have her killed by someone who's sole purpose in life is to ruin anything that makes you happy.

I forgot about The Hulk, but I went with Spawn. Being sent to Hell for killing his unborn child, even if it was accidential, was still his child that he accidentially killed out of anger, made to serve a demon in an army to kill God, see your best friend marry your wife, living in the streets with the homeless since he has nowhere left to go, and The Devil, God, and humans that know of his existence wanting him dead.

Spider-Man 616 in my opinion.
He went through some real shit. 
Parents died, Uncle (father-figure) died, has always been bullied in the school, Gwen Stacy died, Sins of the Past, Clone Saga, overall the maniac Osborn.
Problems to find a job, therefore money problems, problems with girls, paying his rent, everyone in the city hates him, even though he only wants to help and so on, and so on.

I made a case for Spidey on the first page, but this has elaborated on it a great deal more, Also I'd like to add a large number of his best friends and close ones have either died, or became his villains or both
 
Spidey has this cinched, unfortunately for him
#29 Posted by Night Thrasher (3597 posts) - - Show Bio

There was another forum similar to this and I will answer the same...Has to be the hulk

1) Gained superpowers saving a teenage boy...only to be hunted and uncontrollable turning into a "monster"

2) Alcoholic father killed his mother and beat him constantly

3) Love of his life died (3 times, Betty, Jarella, Caiera)

4) Love of his life married another man (Betty was married to Talbot first)

5) Shot into space by his "friends"

6) Numerous friends died (rick jones, jim wilson, talbot)

I could go on, but I think the point is made..at least most of the other characters still have friends or money or can go into public without a pitchforked mob chasing them.

Many characters have gone through plenty of tragedy. I don't think it's necessarily clinched. Wolverine has had many loved ones die in his life and gone through plenty of terrible things. Nightcrawler was thrown into a river to die after being born by his mother and was at one point locked in a cage as part of a freak show in a carnival. Not sure if you want to count Magneto but he had to survive a Nazi death camp.

Spider-Man his parents are dead (sorry Batman) then his Uncle dies because of him. Also he caused Gwen to die saving her. Sorry Superman and you being the last of your race (kinda) you didn't know any of them.

Jeez where do I start.  
 
  • He was blinded and his senses where hightened that much they hurt him
  • His mother run away and joined a convent
  • His father was killed by gangsters for not throwing a boxing match
  • His first love Electra was stabbed to death
  • His wife Karen Page left him, turned in to a junky, got HIV, sold him out to the Kingpin who then destroyed his life and put him on the street she then came back to him and was killed by Bullseye and turned out she never had HIV at all.
  • His next wife Milla Donovan was drove insane by Mister Fear and put in an Insane Asylum, her parents also blame Matt for her condition
I'm pretty sure there's more but I cant think of any at the moment

I'm surprised nobody has forwarded Donna Troy. She's been crapped on by a lot of writers and now she's being totally cut from the universe. Her backstory is literally that she's eternally reborn in order to suffer.

Gotta be Punisher. People's parents die -- it's horrible, it really, truly is. But they get over it eventually. Nobody gets over seeing the love of their life and spawn of their loins gunned down. Especially when it was their fault.

@Iron_Turtle: I was just about to say that as well.

Another I will throw out there but, not sure if people will agree. Silver Surfer hated by the entire universe all because wanted to save his planet from being destroy and have to be responsible for the death of other planets. Also Blade, but I think that was more of the movies version.
