@CODYSF: Is iconic the same as popular?

Superman doesn't get alot of love from people from people outside of comics. alot of people only like him for his t-shirts with the S logo

As much as I want to say Wolverine and Batman, there's no way you can leave Superman out of the discussion. If you asked who was the most iconic, it's Superman (even as a non-fan, you have to respect the character). But, number two... well that could be between 2-10 different characters. Batman, Flash, Wolverine, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, Spider-Man, Moon Knight (just kidding), Captain America, etc...

I'd say Superman and Batman, though Spider-man might be a close third after Bats.

@Deadcool: No Iconic is well beyond simply what is currently popular Superman is Iconic because people the world over can immediately identify him and pretty much know what he's about where as someone like Deadpool who is currently popular isn't Iconic because outside of comics most of the people who know about him have virtually no idea what the character is really like the most they know is that he was in the awful Wolverine movie

Batman, Spider-Man, Captain America, and Wolverine are all good choices for that spot. Though, I agree that Batman and Spider-Man are probably at the top.

See I'd say Bats and Spider-man are above people like Cap and Wolverine because you could probably find more non-comic fans in any country in the world who know Batman is Bruce Wayne and Spider-Man is Peter Parker. They'd probably even be able to give you the basics of their origins too. Show someone a picture of Batman or Spider-man from almost any era and they'd probably guess who they are. Wolverine spends too much time out of costume, or he had the new X-Men outfit when he just wore black and no mask for his look to be considered iconic I think.

Is that white-haired lady Storm of the X-Men? She looks like Storm to me. : )

Batman and Superman are the most iconic but I think Spider-man has become greater than Superman, or maybe soon.

Maybe it's just because I work in a video store and I have to deal with some pretty thick people. I've recommended Captain America and some people are surprised that's it's a comic book movie. I think they think he just exists as a public domain cultural character like Uncle Sam or something. But when Spider-Man, Batman or Superman comes out they just know.

That makes sense... Spider-Man is about as iconic as you can get. If it was DC/Marvel, the choice would be easy in Superman / Spider-Man.

Yeah she's supposed to be in shadows, plus they didn't wanna advertise on the cover that it was going to be Supergirl, that way it could be a surprise in the issue itself.

Spider-Man and Wolverine for Marvel. Batman and Superman for DC. As for the top two, choose one from each pair and there you go.

Yeah your right when it comes to world wide Caps is not iconic to Hulk and Wolverine but Cap is my favorite Marvel character :]

#35 Posted by ComicMan24 (147042 posts) - - Show Bio

Superman, Spider-Man and Batman.

#36 Posted by RazzaTazz (9478 posts) - - Show Bio

Why only two? I think any character known outside the medium of comics or movies could be considered iconic. Thus Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Spider Man, the Hulk, the X-Men.

If we're sticking to Comic Books heroes then definitely Superman and Batman. That's just an obvious choice.

Really? I'd say he gets more love from people outside of comics than he does inside comicdom. He's a very difficult character to write well and fans realize that and unfortunately he sometimes becomes the target of their misgivings. However he's a very easy character to make a blockbuster movie about which reaches a much wider target audience.

@TheWitchingHour I agree, I think Superman has lost his 'cool' to a lot of comic readers, but he's still one of the most recognizable brands in the industry

Batman is number 1, no question, world-wide, everyone with any media outlet knows him. Superman isn't as well-known or popular outside North America and Europe as most of you think (trust me on this, go to Asia and Middle East and Superman is "wha?".

My number 2 would actually be Spiderman now. Although still a toss-up between Superman and Spiderman, I give Spiderman the edge.

If I had to break down the reason why Spiderman edges our Supes, it's because Spiderman resonates more with Women. If you ask regular comic book demographics (white male geeks), Superman is probably more popular but with the other set, Spiderman is (especially with woman, I can't remember the last time I saw a female wear a Superman something for fashion but I do see Spiderman on occasion).

Superman and Batman

- These two have been ingrained into the public conciousness over multiple generations,parent and grandparents know them by sight.

- They have been involved in comics, radio shows, cartoons, TV shows, movies, and video games, no other characters have been saturated into pop culture to such an extent.
