Who are the strongest characters in the DCEU (DC Extended Universe)? Here's where you get to decide. Below, you'll find a collection of characters from the world of DC along with a few stats that detail exactly who they are and what they can do. You'll find both heroes and villains alike who wield all manner of extraordinary powers.

From otherworldly beings such as Superman to regular guys with really cool trinkets, whose bad side would you least like to end up on? Whether they're good, evil, or somewhere in between, let the world know which are your picks for the most powerful DC characters of all time!

  • Who He Is: The last son of a dying planet, Kal-El was raised on Earth and gained incredible superpowers from our planet's yellow sun. As Superman, he fights for truth and justice around the world. As his alter ego, Clark Kent, he fights for bylines at the Daily Planet and the affections of fellow reporter Lois Lane.

    What He Can Do: Superhuman strength, speed, stamina, hearing, and sight; flight; invulnerability (barring the presence of Kryptonite); heat, telescopic, and X-Ray vision; freeze breath... You name it, Superman can do it.

    His Strongest Moment: Taking down the entire Justice League, and then a New God.

    His Weakest Moment: Being beaten up by a middle-aged billionaire.

    Who She Is: Before she was known as Wonder Woman, she was Diana of Themyscira, the daughter of Zeus and the Queen of the Amazons. Diana was raised by her fellow Amazons, a group of warrior women tasked with fighting Ares. Diana ultimately left the island paradise to prevent Ares from further spreading destruction across the planet. Through her efforts, she became the world's first superhero. 

    What She Can Do: Wonder Woman is a highly trained Amazon warrior who has no problem leaping tall buildings in a single bound. As a demigod, her strength appears to be on par with Superman's, and she ages much slower than the average human. She's also got a pair of super cool accessories: her Bracelets of Submission and her magical lasso, which can compel anyone to tell the truth.   

    Her Strongest Moment: Telling Ares where he can shove it by defeating him in an epic fight. 

    Her Weakest Moment: Giving up the superhero life for the better part of a century following the demise of Steve Trevor. But hey, we all need a little breathing room every now and then.

  • What It Is: As you can see, beauty is not one of Doomsday's greatest assets. In Batman vs. Superman, the monster is created by Lex Luthor using Kryptonian technology, the cadaver of General Zod, and Luthor's own DNA. 

    What It Can Do: Possessing a complete lack of conscience and rational thought, this thing more or less has one ultimate objective: wipe out everything in its path. Doomsday's abilities include a whole new level of superhuman strength, X-ray vision, and regeneration. 

    Its Strongest Moment: When Doomsday proves itself mightier than Batman, Wonder Woman, and Superman combined. 

    Its Weakest Moment: Getting taken out by Superman.

  • Who He Is: As fate would have it, Superman isn't the only one to survive the destruction of Krypton. General Zod is a former Kryptonian pariah who leads the Sword of Rao during a civil conflict on his home planet. After escaping from his imprisonment in the Phantom Zone, he shows up on Earth intending to transform it into a new Krypton. 

    What He Can Do: Upon his arrival on Earth, Zod discovers he has a whole host of god-like powers: superhuman strength, flight, X-ray vision, and, well, pretty much everything super. 

    His Strongest Moment: His epic speech in Man Of Steel. While Zod ultimately uses his powers for evil, he is admittedly a brilliant strategist and inspires fierce loyalty from his allies. Talk about willing to go to any lengths. 

    His Weakest Moment: His ultimate defeat by Superman - made all the worse for mocking Clark just moments earlier for spending his life on a farm.
