All day. I also agree with the other two.

Mine would be: Nightwing, Collosus and the glorious almighty powerful CONDIMENT KING! No but seriously if he had been holding guns instead of sauces he could have killed: Blue Beetle, Robin and Black Canary.

Songbird, Deathlok, Hercules for Marvel and for DC I would say Booster Gold and Red Robin should both have their own on-goings for sure.

#13 Posted by fodigg (6136 posts) - - Show Bio

Some good ones on this list already. I totally agree with Booster Gold, Jubilee, Nightwing, etc.

I think I'll add Cassandra Cain, Wally West, and Donna Troy for not making the cut in the DCnU.

Nobody from DC/Marvel is underrated

#17 Posted by Lion_Heart22 (444 posts) - - Show Bio

Union Jack. Beast. Hawkeye 616. Firebird. Banshee. Blue Marvel. Batroc. Elsa Bloodstone.

Blue Beetle (the real one). Wildcat. Aquaman. Stephanie Brown. Power Girl. Ice. The Question. Booster Gold

Aquaman is right where he needs to be. He's not underrated or overrated. I agree with Harley and She-Hulk. Other than that, I disagree with the rest of the list.@Imagine_Man15 said:

I agree with the Question.

#19 Posted by Baberaham_Lincoln (944 posts) - - Show Bio

The Question, Red Tornado, Booster Gold, Black Lightning, Mr Majestic (A character with awesome potential and background info), freedom fighters, and cosmic boy....

OOOHHHHH that reminds me, Sodam Yat!!!!! not really underrated, but he should still be integrated into the New 52.

How can you agree that Iron Fist is underrated (which he's not ,especially on CV) but Jubilee,Manhunter,Killer Croc,Triathlon,Cloak,Night Thrasher,& Robin are NOT underrated? That doesn't make sense to me.

Has been for some time I feel. She came back for a bit as "Black Bat," but then the new 52 happened and where is she? She's clearly underrated by the writers, if not the fans.

I don't know if the fact she hasn't reappeared in the New 52 means that she's underrated.DC just started over,I would assume they don't know where to fit her in yet.Babs is Batgirl again and she's not White Canary as many thought so...

Well I was also thinking of her demotion to "crazy dragon lady" and then disappearing act she did for a while prior to her reintroduction as Black Bat and then being cut again.

They gave him too many powerups in the past

Apocalypse - An anceint mutant with infinite story possibilities that's treated as a one dimensional @$$hole character

, Rocket Racer - The Black Super Hero no one cares about

, Time Trapper - The master of the future who barely ever gets noticed

and Paibok the Power Skrull - whom is a great villain for Johnny Storm and whom I just like. All of which are my favorite characters.
