Base: Sorry, no information on numbers voting.

Notes: The Caped Crusader was named the greatest superhero of all time according to readers of SFX, a UK-based magazine specialising in SF and Fantasy. First published in May 1939, the alter-ego of billionaire playboy Bruce Wayne has also featured in a 1960s TV series as well as in a big budget movies and video games. Dave Golder, editor of SFX.co.uk, said: "No matter how often he's reinvented - a noir detective in the 40s, a camp icon in the 60s, a gothic Knight in the 80s - he's always the coolest, most iconic and recognisable superhero there is." British comic hero Captain Britain came in at number seven. He was created in the late 1970s and has been relaunched occasionally over the years, most recently with a story by Doctor Who and Casualty writer Paul Cornell. His US counterpart Captain America was ranked at number 33 in the poll. Seven of the top 10 positions were occupied by characters from Marvel Comics, which has been acquired by Disney. The rest - Batman, Superman and Green Lantern - belong to the stable of rival publisher DC Comics.
