All actors who've played multiple comic book characters, ranked by fans. While many comic book fans get riled up over the thought of actors playing more than one comic book character in their lifetime, it’s not uncommon for it to happen.

Halle Berry is another celebrity who’s graced the silver screen more than once with her superpowers, when she took audiences by storm in the X-Men franchise, and as Catwoman.
