Tier of comic characters

I just wanted to invent a tire for each level of characters, state what it takes to be in this tier, and give an example

Tier 1: Street Level

These are your typical street though or heroes. They typically don't deal with anything out side of their district or city. A good amount of them aren't even have powers, and the ones who do may have limited strength, speed, and agility. Do to most of them having a lack of powers, or limited powers, these guys typically are great with prep and have genius level intellect Good examples are:

  • Spiderman(even though he borderlines on street leveler and city level)
  • Batman
  • Captain America
  • Wolverine
  • Daredevil

Tier 2: City Level

This level typically consist of a lot of brawlers. Durability, strength, and speed increases extremely here, and heroes typically deal with city level threats. Examples are:

  • Ironman
  • Thing
  • Quicksliver
  • Cyborg
  • Aquaman

Tier 3: National/Team Buster

These are guys that typically deal with threats on the national or international level, and can be team busters if necessary. They can have an array of powers and abilities and are high on durability. Examples consist of:

  • Red Hulk
  • Superboy
  • Flash(But like Spiderman, he borderlines on tier 3 and 4)
  • Terrax
  • Iceman

Tier 4: World Buster

These are guys who literally have the power to destroy worlds(or have the power to beat those who can destroy worlds). High in strength and energy projection, these heroes can do some damage if they turned evil. Most of these individuals are typically alien, though there are some exceptions. Examples are:

  • Superman
  • Zoom
  • Hulk
  • Captain Marvel
  • Juggernaut

Tier 5: Cosmic Threats

These are typically heroes/villains who are powered by cosmic, energy, or have molecular manipulation. Examples are:

  • Silver Surfer
  • Thor
  • Genis Vell
  • Despero
  • Superboy Prime

Tier 6: Skyfather

This trier consist of mostly God's, or high level cosmic characters. Examples are:

  • Odin
  • Zeus
  • The Wizard Shazam
  • Dormammu
  • Trigon

Tier 7:

I really have no name for this level, but I can describe most of them as being high level reality warpers. The extent of their reality warping can put them near the level of some celestials. Some examples are:

  • The Beyonder
  • Galactus
  • Franklin Richards
  • Eternity
  • Mr. Mxyzptlk

Tier 8: Celestials/Omnipotent

These characters are typically are omnipotent(or very nearly are), and are not hero or villain, and are instead the "God" of their Universe(though some have shown to be able to be damaged by other beings of their level). Examples are:

  • The One Above All
  • Living Tribunal
  • Man of Miracles
  • The Spectre
  • The Presence

Justice League War Thoughts and Review

Hmm, what can I say about this movie. Well seeing that I'm not real "happy" about new–52, well, anything. Firstly, WHY THE F*CK is Darkseid about 30 feet tall. I mean in the comics, he's no midget, and even pre–52 he still like 8 feet, but this guys here is just huge. He would make Hulk look like a baby. Now the over all design of Darkseid is brilliant, with that touch of armor.

Character development was brilliant for some, while others was bland. Switching out Aquaman with Billy was a great mix, as it added variety and a great background story to both characters. Seeing Cyborg's back story and him and his father's development brought another dimension to the story. Now besides those two, everybody else was pretty 2 dimensional. Batman and Green Lantern did build a small character bond, but that was cut between scenes. Wonder Woman, Superman, and Flash appeared out of no where, and anyone that hasn't read up on the new 52, this is a downfall. Overall the fight scenes were great(well what would you expect from a DC animated film?), but some characters were slightly overpowered here; even the Batman vs Superman fight was spot on, Green Lantern was thrown around like a rag doll, which in reality he could hold his own, though still losing. Darkseid's healing factor was not shown to it's full effect, as shown when he gets stab. He really can just shrug that sword off like it was nothing, but do to them needing to add plot to the story, they had to give him some weakness.


Overall, the movie was good, showing off the first new–52 animated film at it's finest. To mean, it is no Flashpoint Point Paradox or Crisis on Two Earth's, but it can still give you the entertainment a typical DC animated film can.

Overall: 7.9/10
