It's a bird, it's a plane! No, it's Superman, but you already knew that. He's one of the most iconic comic book characters ever, so of course there are plenty of good Superman video games that put you in his red underoos. With this list of Superman games, you're guaranteed to find one that's your Kryptonite! Your votes determine the list order, so vote up your favorites to decide the best Superman games. We even included a few games that aren't necessarily Superman games, but let you play as the man of steel.

Games about Superman range from single player adventures to straight-up brawlers. It's incredibly satisfying to kick on Injustice: Gods Among Us and use Superman to beat down so many different DC villains until they're completely knocked out. Long gone now, Infinite Crisis had Superman available to you in this MOBA, and while it did some interesting things, it just wasn't meant to last.

So take a look at this superpowered Superman games list, vote up the best, and feel free to rerank if you've played enough of these super games to be an expert. And if we've missed any Man of Steel games, add them to the list!
