    Yeah, I know Wolverine says that ad nauseam, but I'm putting together a list of common comic book abilities and I notice that Wolverine doesn't rate even near the top on most of them. I've tried to place these abilities in alphabetical order, and if I've missed any I apologize, and please feel free to add.  Also, I know my list is kind of Marvel-heavy, that's just who I read more of.    Please feel free to any any names you think are appropriate, and if you like where they and others rate on a scale of 1 to 100.

    Best Acrobat



    Quote:
    I put Spider-Man on top here, with honorable mention to Daredevil, Captain America, and Nightwing


Definitely Spiderman.


    Quote:

    Best Detective



    Quote:
    In this category, Batman's (Bruce Wayne) the best, with Dick Grayson coming in second. I'd also give a nod to all the investigative reporters in each universe, many of whom don't have superpowers. This includes Lois Lane, Jimmy Olsen, Ben Urich, etc.


Yeah batman.


    Quote:

    Best Energy projector



    Quote:
    This is a hard one for me to figure out. As many energy projector as there are in comics, there doesn't seem to be a general consensus over which ones are the most powerful. Superman? Thor? Green Lantern? Cyclops? Iron Man? Does Iron Man even count as an energy projector since he does it using machinery?


This is a tough one. Thor is kind of a hardhitter though not very fancy. I think he desrves a mention. In terms of finesse as well i think Heralds and GLs should make up the rest.


    Quote:

    Fastest



    Quote:
    Flash of course. In fact he's so fast that there aren't even many good stories about him now.


Yep.


    Quote:

    Best Flier



    Quote:
    Just like energy projection, this is a hard one to figure out. I've noticed that the two most overused powers in comics are flying and throwing zaps.


Superman and clones should own this.


    Quote:

    Best at Healing



    Quote:
    I think it's Wolverine, with the Hulk a close second.


This probably should be Wolverines category as it pretty much is "what he does" apart from the claws.


    Quote:

    Best Improviser



    Quote:
    Spider-Man shows this in his solo books more often than anyone else. After that, I'd go with Captain America, especially while he's leading a team.


Tony deserves mention.


    Quote:

    Best Inventor



    Quote:
    Reed Richards in first place. Hank Pym, Tony Stark and Doom tie for second.


Yep.


    Quote:

    Best Leader



    Quote:
    Captain America hands down. He's both inspirational and leads by example. (Something Superman btw is not so good at.)


Yep.


    Quote:

    Most invulnerable



    Quote:
    Superman, Hulk, and Juggernaut. Put those 3 in any order you like.


Juggs then Surfer. Then Superman and classic Savage Hulk assuming you mean "hard invulnerability".


    Quote:

    Most magical



    Quote:
    Thor, Doctor Strange, Doctor Fate, Loki.



    Quote:

    Best Power suit user



    Quote:
    Iron Man. Doctor Doom may often have a better suit, having the resources of an entire nation to utilize, but Iron Man will use his suit more effectively.



    Quote:

    Richest



    Quote:
    Bruce Wayne, Tony Stark, Lex Luthor, Norman Osborn, Doctor Doom. Place those in whatever order you want.


Stark would probably be the richest to be honest but lets say Bruce is a good counterpart in the DCU.


    Quote:

    Stealthiest



    Quote:
    Daredevil. Since stealth is more about being silent than being non-odorous, Wolverine can only get second place at best. After that, Batman, Nightwing, Electra, etc.


More or less agree.


    Quote:

    Strongest



    Quote:
    The Hulk, then Superman


Pretty much. Though I think Herc might get a mention in between Hulk and Superman in my book at least.


    Quote:

    Best Tracker



    Quote:
    This is the only one I can think of where Wolverine comes in first. Unless you mean tracking as a detective does, in which case Logan would be way behind Batman.
