looks like DC has 7 members and Marvel only 4... looks like JLA to me

@ombla2:  Who did you vote for?

@Liberty: superman he had at the time only 7 votes... i'm a DC guy
Posted by GothamRed

The only thing this list is missing, is Nightwing

Posted by OmegaTheDestroyer

Martian Manhunter didn't even get a single vote, that's quite shocking to me.

Posted by weaponx

I agree that no votes for Martian Manhunter was a surprise, as well as Zatana winning easily. I would have liked to have seen it be a little more Marvel/DC balanced, but it is all good. I love both but am slightly more Marvel myself. Another thing that was interesting was no one really put any of the big big guns on there besides eternity, for example, if I was to create the most powerful superheros I would have chosen the likes of Galactus, Pheonix, Living Tribunal (I don't remember if Beyonder got a vote or not, but even if he did, it seems like if you want to get the ultimate list, you want to get the strongest), Specter, etc. I understand it was people voting for their favorite though, so it turned out to be a lot of fun:).

Awesome that Zatanna made it. Besides that, the list is so standard. I personally, am disappointed.
But I still recommend it since it was a lot of fun and such a brilliant undertaking. Great job, Liberty.

Caps made it, I am happy to hear that one.

Posted by Gunslinger6

I'm happy Thor made it, would've been a shame if he didn't.

Posted by daedalus25

6 and 4 actually.  And every person was either a member of the JLA or the Avengers.  I guess it's to be expected that those teams put together would be the "ultimate greatest" superhero team.

Posted by difficlus

cant believe Silver Surfer never made it...

Posted by Bushiken

Dr Strange of course!!!!

Posted by queenfrost_

I love this whole concept, is there another?

I like this list.

Posted by Liberty

COME ON!   325 people worked on this list for a month and someone hit no without even having a backbone enough to at least say why.  What other list went through this much effort?

Posted by GT-Man

Man what about spawn :(
Posted by LightBright

Yay! Booster and Beetle made top ten! ^_^

you forgot to add science onto spider-man

superman an batman for me can't  choose 1

Posted by Mr_Wayne69

What's cool about this list is it has the best (or most notable) Justice League and Avengers members. Not a bad list.

Posted by dstorres

I find it interesting that no female Marvels made it on the list.

Posted by actionpacked247

Awesome list!  Wish I would've noticed this contest sooner.  I would've voted for He-Man.

Posted by sonoftheweb

why is the tick part of this?

Posted by Billy Batson

DC won :D

Posted by PowerHerc

This is a cool idea and list.   
Zatanna making the list is surprising and cool due to her not being a long-standing, well-known in non-comic circles, multi-media and iconic character.
Posted by harleyquinn12

Aw, no Cyclone, oh well, nice contest though!
Posted by notoriousbcb

Love the approach and the care taken to put this together.  Great work.  I would have tossed my vote to Batman (Bruce Wayne) as well.

Posted by arrowfan237
I agree. As weird as this seems DC is actually less complicated and Marvel has just too many story lines going at once. They have also outplayed the Avengers and the X Men. Nobody really cares about them anymore.
Posted by Apis

Gotta say I love its pretty near Perfect and they'd be unbeatable as a team.
Posted by cosmo111687

It doesn't change anything, really, but I would like to add one more vote to Batman. :)

Posted by samanthademeste

Nice list.

Posted by Tunsieon

I can't believe that there's no Martian Manhunter.

I was surprised as well.

No Dick Grayson = Voted Down =P

Posted by AssertingValor

Great! but Cap and Bats on the same team???

Edited by Agha1

Thank god wolverine made it.

Edited by Liberty

@agha1: Please recommend if you like it.

Posted by CpaseKowboi

Jean Grey got no votes!? People you are crazy if you don't think she could make this alliance. Also one I was not surprised with but who I think should be in the team is Aquaman. He's kind of a badass.

Posted by Mister181

No Ironman ?

Posted by Liberty

@mister181: Yeah. that was one of many surprises. He only got 2 votes.
