Superheroes have been the flavor of the month as of late so I thought I'd put together a list that honors the biggest and the baddest. These heroes are the most powerful in the world. The debate will always continue, who's the most powerful superhero of all time? Well, hopefully I can help shed some light on the situation with this list. As a giant superhero fan myself I was curious to see what the rest of the world thought on the matter as I did some research. Of course everyone had their own opinion, me included. So I decided to take what I learned and apply it to this article. I'd like to think it was well thought out and the order makes sense, well, it does to me at least. I can't wait to hear what kind of controversy this starts so without further ado, the 10 most powerful superheroes of all time! Real quick, some honorable mentions... First off, Dr. Fate. I debated between either him or Doctor Strange to make the top 10 and I chose to go with the latter due to the simple fact that Dr. Fate needs his helmet in order to have full command of his powers and Doctor Strange, well, Doctor Strange is just a badass who doesn't. The Green Lantern, whether it's Hal Jordan or John Stewart, The Lantern is the powerful protector of the universe. With his ring, he can create anything he wants just by thinking about it. It's a powerful weapon to say the least but it does need to be recharged and without it, he's just a man. The ring makes him special but not special enough to crack the top 10. Professor X is another incredibly powerful hero with telepathic powers beyond belief. The only problem is, if you had a helmet like Magneto then you'd be immune to Professor X's powers. Of course no one else has one but if it didn't exist, he would've easily found himself in the top 10. Wonder Woman is essentially the female version of Superman. The only problem is, she's not as powerful and she's not entirely invulnerable. The beautiful woman of Themyscira found herself just short of making the cut. At lease she's beautiful. (Is that a creepy THING to say about a fictional character? Ehh, oh well) Captain Atom is a badass. He can harness massive amounts of energy and then use them to his advantage. He's almost as strong as Superman and he's a born soldier. What kept him out of the top 10? Unfortunately I've just seen him get his ass kicked by Superman one to many times. Last but not least, Billy Batson, aka Captain Marvel, aka Shazam. Captain Marvel is as powerful as Superman is physically but he lacks the intellect or combat skills in order to compete with The Man of Steel. Like every other superhero, Captain has a weakness, a big one. He's just a kid until he utters the word "Shazam!" Unfortunately, that weakness doesn't look too good on a resume. Still a powerhouse of a superhero though. Ok, now on to the top 10...
