List Rules Vote up your favorite red-haired heroes and villains.

Superheroes come in all shapes and sizes, different religions, races, species, and everything else in between, but no two superheroes are exactly alike. Sometimes, it's fun to focus on those slight differences that separate a character from the rest of the pack by looking at their unique character traits. While some superheroes and villains sport awesome outfits or cool accessories, these characters are known for having rockin' red hair.

This list is comprised of characters who have, at one time or another, been the proud exhibitors of a glorious mane of red locks, and while they may have changed this at some time in their lives, they looked pretty amazing with a red 'do. With so many awesome comic book redheads to choose from, it'll be interesting to see which characters rise through the ranks.

Find your favorite red-haired male and female superheroes (and supervillains) down below and vote them up to see which one rises to the top!
