A man who can single-handedly kill a gang of assassins with merely a pencil and not shed a drop of sweat is bound to be feared and respected.

6. Thor – MCU
God of Thunder with unfathomable strength and endurance is bound to be on this list. He is a fan-favorite character and his figurine can be found in most of the kids’ rooms. This popular MCU character is defined by valiance and is worthy of the Mjolnir.
7. Batman – Batman Begins Franchise
A flawed superhero that is highly relatable to fans! Unlike Superman who was born with powers, Batman worked hard to make himself what he is today. He had a dark past but then he rose from those wounds and ashes to become one of the most formidable heroes. He watched everyone from the shadows. Despite being a common human, there is nothing impossible for him as he can even make Superman bleed.

9. Captain America – MCU
Captain America is the nicest Avenger on the team who runs on high morals and principles. The soldier sacrificed his happiness and the chance to be with his love for his duty up until Endgame. After Thor, Captain is the worthy Avenger who can wield the Mjolnir. No good adjectives are enough to describe him. Though the super-soldier serum made invincible it was his courage and love for the nation that made him a superhero.
10. Professor Snape – Harry Potter Franchise
The second most talked about character in the Harry Potter Franchise is Professor Snape. Though he came across as an anti-hero at first eventually we learned that he was the real hero. Even though Lily broke his heart for James who bullied him at school, it didn’t stop him from caring about Harry as he saw Lily in his eyes. Some of his quotes still resonate in our ears.
