The Most Powerful Characters In DC Comics

Over 9.2K Ranker voters have come together to rank this list of The Most Powerful Characters In DC Comics
Voting Rules
Vote up the most powerful beings in the DC universe.

"Strength" in comic books is hard to qualify, or quantify. One character always has to be stronger than another or there are no stakes. Which is why it seems like everyone in the DC Universe somehow has access to the "extremely rare" Kryptonite... But power, power is another story.

These are the most powerful beings, entities, and characters in all of DC Comics. The characters on this list are those that possess the strength, intelligence, and abilities to rival the gods! (There are some gods on this list, and not necessarily at the top.)

We want to know who YOU think is the most powerful being! Whose more powerful The Spectre or Parallax? Anti-Monitor or Imperiex? Superman Prime or Darkseid?

Vote up those your think are the most powerful! Vote down those that aren't worthy! And when you're finished with this list, you can also vote on the strongest characters in the DCEU.
