I like the look of Night Thrasher plus he's black like me, but to be honest...I don't really like Night Thrasher. Too 90's, especially with the skateboard.

Just because one doesn't have "super-powers" doesn't mean they can't be superheroes. Being a superhero isn't just about having superpowers, it's being able to go beyond the impossible and doing what others can only dream of. Anyone can be a hero, but only those dedicated enough to rise above themselves can truly be called a SUPERhero; whether they have superpowers or not.

Bucky Barnes (Winter Soldier), Black Widow, Jason Todd (Red Hood), Punisher, and Ultimate Hawkeye (if he counts)

So... Is Bruce Lee a superhero? because I really like his movies... Just kidding. Well, for the Ancient Greeks a hero had to be someone that does something extraodinary (Oedipus killed his father and married his mother, he is a Hero for that, crazy isn't it?), now is used for someone extraordinarily good, oh well... nevermind, this post was pointless...

The closest thing Bucky has to powers is his bionic arm, but that still only takes him so far. But he's actually more human that Captain America as he doesn't even have the Super-Soldier Serum in him, just pure skill and training.

I vote for Rorschach. No billions on bank accounts to buy supercars and supergadgets, no backup from government agencies, no serum to stop aging (Black Widow). Just brutal force of Justice without compromise.

Does people like Iron Man count? He doesnt technically have any super powers... I see Bucky is already mentioned, and he have a bionic arm, if that doesnt count as a ''superpower'' then a powered suit doesnt count aswell, right?

Anyhow... i got a total broner for Nightwing, Batman, Batman Beyond, Green Arrow and the The Question.

Damn, I assumed Bucky went through some Super Soldier or Super Soldier like treatment that caused him to go crazy. My Winter Soldier knowledge is very limited so I filled in the blanks with common gimmicks. lol

He's a lot more complicated character than most people would assume, under Ed Brubaker's writing he's become a great and complex character that I would eve dare to say rivals some of the more interesting Marvel characters that have been around for decades. I'd recommend looking into his character more, you might be surprised at how awesome he really is xD

I've seen Batman's name mentioned too many times on this thread. Not because I have a problem with him being someone's favorite hero (he's my favorite as well), but because he does have a superpower: Its called "getting things done".

Bucky's bionic arm is simply a more advanced prosthetic to replace his lost arm. It does give him added strength and faster reflexes but ONLY in that one arm. The rest of his body is human.

Ironfist is definitely a superhero

@SupermanJohnathanKentJr: That's arguable, since his "power" is skill based, and would be accessible to anyone who trained enough.  Hypothetically speaking, everyone on Earth could have the power of the Iron Fist.
#42 Posted by SupermanJohnathanKentJr (300 posts) - - Show Bio

No no no, Danny Rand was chosen to be Iron Fist and I believe he had to go through some difficult trials to get his powers. He has one of the harder to obtain superpowers. He's not just tapping into chi everyone has or whatever.

to me its a tie between Nightwing and Rorschach.

Nightwing has had personal training from batman himself and has BEEN batman himself. he's a character i can relate to the most...but then there's Rorschach, who is so devoted to justice he thinks his mask is his REAL FACE! i cant say i can relate to him at all. but i admire him the most. he makes batman look like a spoiled BRAT! lol but i think im going to still go with nightwing only because i can relate to him more and his costume is cooler than Rorschach. But their is no doubt in my mind that Rorscach can whoop Nightwing! aha

Right, i know, i know ;). But how about Tony Stark, does he then count as a hero without powers?
