Back in the 80s comics were considered lame and something that introvert kids read in their free time. The craze wasn’t real at all. Because of this the characters that appeared in the comics didn’t get much attention to detail in looks (except some really important ones) but things changed during the mid-90s & early 2000s. More and more people started to get interested in the comics, including female audience who is now following this genre of entertainment. Thus, it became obvious for the artists and writers to start doing some cool art & stories. This gave rise to making more and more characters looking sexy & hot.
So let’s do a countdown of 10 characters from the comics who are considered sex symbols.
10. John Constantine.
Too many people think he is just a magician who is addicted to cigarettes, BUT that’s not the case. Believe it or not, this guy is one of the smartest out there. Not only in looks but also with brains. Want an example? He tricked Devil into curing his Cancer. Also, another fun fact, He is also the love interest of the hottest magician…..Zatanna.
9. Scott Summers a.k.a Cyclops.
Yup! You guessed it right we’re talking about that guy who shoots lasers from his eyes. The guy whose eyes are portals to another dimension. You should not think less of him. After all, he has dated Hotties like Jean Grey, Emma Frost & even Iron Fist’s close friend Colleen wing. He has that attractive body & those dope powers which will make anyone fall for him even though he thinks otherwise.
8. Matthew Murdock a.k.a Daredevil.
It wouldn’t be a list of great names if it doesn’t have the name of the devil of hell’s kitchen on it. One might think, “How can a blind man possibly be a Sex Symbol?” Well, the answer is straight up simple. He has every quality of a gentleman. He is calm, has an attitude, respects others, believes in the best of other & the best part, he is a LAWYER! ( obviously, it doesn’t speak anything particular, but it speaks a lot about his personality) If you don’t believe in these words then see the women he has dated, Elektra, Karen Page…. This guy even made Black Widow fall for him, so much so that she was ready to break up with Hawkeye.
7. Oliver Queen a.k.a Green Arrow.
Pretty sure you know about him. After all, this guy has a god damn T.V Show of his own (haven’t watched it yet? Go watch it, what the hell are you doing!?) Well apparently his comic book half is much more interesting than the one you know. The guy is Funny, has a charming face, a heart-melting Swag & pockets full of money. This isn’t enough? Well, his love interest happens to be one of the sexiest characters to be ever written, we’re talking about Black Canary. Oh! Did we forget to mention that he can sing and cook too!?
6. Richard “Dick” Grayson a.k.a Nightwing.
There’re a lot of reasons why He deserves the no.1 spot. Some being that he is a true gentleman has his respect for others at any cost, is a really great team leader, has the best hair, most smooth and silky costume. Nightwing is a character who was written as ‘sexy’ back when other superheroes were running around with their underwear on their pants. There will always be more new superheroes who will be called sex symbols but none can replace what Richard is.
5. Hal Jordan a.k.a Green Lantern.
Is there something that should be said about this guy? Doesn’t his name make you melt already? If not, hear some more about him. The guy is a United States Airforce’s certified pilot (oh! Boy already a military thing!) Has the ability to overcome great fear, has that charming face and a much better physics, and he also happens to be one of the best Green Lantern known to history. Even his own Corps ladies drool for him if all this doesn’t melt you then what will?
4. Kal-El a.k.a Clark Kent a.k.a Superman.
You had this coming your way! The guy is the benchmark for all superheroes! Both in costume as well as off costume. Not only is he a great guy to be with, He also has the qualities of being a great Father (ladies are you listening?) and who wouldn’t want to date a Kryptonian? (he is good in bed btw) The guy has probably the best Physic which you can stare at all day, has a kind heart, looks smart and well he is the god damn! SUPERMAN. By the way, he isn’t far behind in taking ladies to highland too. He has dated Lois Lane (not an easy one!), Lana Lang, & the queen of Beauties Wonder Woman! Doesn’t satisfy you yet? See the pic below.
3. Remy Lebeau a.k.a Gambit.
Do you like that sharp Jawline? If you do, then find the guy named Remy Lebeau, he’s got you covered. If that & those attracting eyes & that face doesn’t do the trick then he’s gonna use his Hypnotic Charm on you. As for his Love life, Rogue from X-Men was madly in love with him.
2. Batman a.k.a Bruce Wayne.
Genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist, Martial artist, Weaponist blah blah blah….. we can keep going on and it won’t end. Everyone knows who Bruce Wayne is. Everyone knows how good he is at everything. Is there really a need to explain? No right? The best part is that his real personality is Batman which is the coolest thing ever. (that’s why his name is written in an altered way in the heading) Also! He just proposed Catwoman in Batman #24.
Now before we tell you about our no.1 pick, let’s give some honorable mentions.
Barry Allen – The Flash (he would have been on the list had he been more careful in social life.)
T’Challa- Black Panther
Conner Kent- Superboy
Tony Stark- Iron Man (if only he wasn’t a jerk to others)
Steve Rogers- Captain America
1. James Buchanan Barnes a.k.a Winter Soldier.
There’s not really much to talk about his personality since he is an anti-hero and has that arrogant attitude and stuff but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t deserve to be on this list. He looks smart, is an expert gymnast, knows how to fight and was told by someone, happens to be really good in bed. Not to mention that both Agent Hill & Black Widow want him!
