10 Times Superheroes Were Forced To Kill Other Heroes

9. Superman Kills Wonder Woman

DC Comics

When a story involves both Batman and Superman being evil for 99% of a comic, you know some serious mayhem is about to go down. This couldn’t be more the case for Absolute Power which, until Injustice: Gods Among Us, contained just about the most superhero murder DC had ever graced us with.

Not only does this particular death also come immediately after seeing Batman get stabbed to death, but it’s also probably the most iconic way to kill Wonder Woman too.

The panel of Superman strangling Wonder Woman with her own lasso is absolutely brutal. In a franchise where heroes often have incredibly overdramatic expressions, there’s something incredibly realistic about her expression and posewhich, when combined with the ironic nature of what kills her, makes the whole thing nightmarishly memorable.

I like my comics like I like my coffee - in huge, unquestionably unhealthy doses.
