Moon Knight or Black Panther IMO.

And Gambit and Surfer are pretty popular.

And how does stripping Superman of.... everything make him Luke Cage? They are completely different characters and just because they are durable and strong (vast difference between their levels) doesn't make them similar.

And I wouldn't consider Quicksilver like Flash either. Pietro has virtually none of the applications Flash has with his powers and virtually no redeeming qualities as a character. He has the charisma of a broom.

None of these characters are underrated...

If anything Quicksilver is overrated given your analogy. So is Luke Cage.

Anyways, I'd say its a tossup between Black Panther, Quicksilver, and Gambif. Black Panther is underrated because people write him off as a Batman clone even though he is better than Batman. Quicksilver is underrated because he is seen as a Flash clone even though besides the super speed, he is completely different from Flash and more interesting. Gambit is underrated because he is written off as a run of the mill anti hero even though he is much more underneath.

I voted for Black Panther, Silver Surfer, and Quicksilver. They're all great characters that don't seem to get nearly enough recognition. I think Gambit isn't really all that underrated as it seems like he has a pretty dedicated following, especially among those that watched the cartoon series in the 90s. And while Moon Knight is cool, he just doesn't seem as interesting to me as the rest of the characters that I've already mentioned. I don't really know enough about Luke Cage to say anything one way or the other about him.

I know, right? Household implements in general have always been far more engaging than Quicksilver.

You guys want me to say Black Panther is underrated when hes a copy paste of Batman? Na, at least with Deathstrokes copy cat, Deadpool you get two completely different characters that are both amusing in their own ways. I just cant get over Black Panther, to me he's just a marvel batman and i can't get over that.

Voted for Mooknight, he deserves the vote the most imo.

Considering many of these characters are the poor man's version of certain DC characters, I'm going with Silver Surfer. Don't know much about him, but at least he's original.

I think all of these guys.They are their own characters with more than great history to them,but people just brush them aside.

@extremis:

The only characters here who are similar to any DC characters are Moonknight and Quicksilver. Even then, they are not poor mans version of DC characters.

None of these characters are underrated. They all get more attention than they deserve. Luke Cage has had the last 10 years or something of Avengers comics devoted to him, and he's still one of the most boring characters in existence.

@wolverine08: I was talking about certain ones being a poor man's version of DC characters. You've already noted who those are.

Luke Cage also can't survive in space,

doesn't have freezing breath,

doesn't have gale force breath,

doesn't have telescopic vision,

doesn't have microscopic vision,

doesn't have superspeed,

doesn't have the strength level necessary to pull a planet out of alignment,

cannot survive extreme (surface of the sun) temperatures,

has the lifespan of a normal human,

does not have the intelligence capable of understanding Krypton's advanaced sciences,

cannot absorb and metabolize yellow sun radiation,

is not immune to all forms of human or Earthly diseases, illnesses, viruses and toxins,

does not have flawless, total recall of everything he has ever seen, read, or heard,

does not have superhuman hearing allowing him to recognize police sirens while in orbit,

and he does not have a superman sense of smell.

Other than all those, yeah I guess you're right! He's exactly like Superman!

Out of the choices I'd say Moon Knight.

Black panther has nothing in common with bats except a similar looking costume. Which BTW is made of vibranium or vibranium laced. Either way, the armor puts him up there with people who far outclass him in strength. He gets my vote

Black Panther is not African American. He is not from America, so he is just African.

Panther.

Moon Knight is definitely one; great character with lots of potential. But I voted for BP - dude is mad intelligent, king of a nation, has all this awesome tech....and people still label him as a generic martial artist street-level type hero (which he was at certain points in his career, but that's not the point!).

Even though I'm a Moon Knight fan, I really think Black Panther should be waaay more recognized than he is.

+1. lol.

Luke Cage definitely isn't underrated in any way.
