If you have a love for superheroes and own a PS4, you're in luck! It turns out there are a ton of great PlayStation 4 superhero games, and we're going to rank the best of them.

One of the newest PS4 games about superheroes is Injustice 2. Released in early 2017, the newest installment in the Injustice series adds more of your favorite heroes to a game that is both easy to pick up and hard to master. If you never played Batman: Arkham Knight, it's a must-play superhero game for any PlayStation 4 owner., as are the other Arkham titles. Other options include Lego Marvel Super Heros 2, Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes, and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom.

Not every superhero game on this list is a PS4 original - take DC Universe Online for example, which came out in 2011. However, all these superhero games are currently available on the PlayStation Store, regardless of release date. Vote up your favorite superhero game for PS4, or simply use this list as a recommendation guide if you're looking for more titles to play.
