Superman, Batman, Robin, Wonder Woman.

Robin just because for the most part he goes hand in hand with Batman.

Aquaman! No, I lie. People I talked to didn't know who he was and were astonished when I told them he was in the Justice League.

Agreed.

I wouldn't count Robin not because he isn't his own Character but it's purely by extension. Kinda like Lois is that for Supes. I for one didn't know Nightwing was the original Robin till much later and I am betting I am not alone on that.

Captain America(insert middle finger hither.).

But seriously? I'd say Batman is going to be the one that people instantly flock to, that they instantly recognize. I think he is higher then Superman.

It's funny..

They sell the Logo T-shirts You'd be surprised how many people know then Green Lantern logo, if not the character itself

I'd go with Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and it's a toss up between Flash and Robin

Batman and Robin (they still come in as a package for some old timers and new)

I gotta say... Superman and Lois Lane, and Batman and Robin. They have always been paired up in so many different forms of media you can't separate them. I think WonderWoman and the Flash may be more famous, but I don't know if they would be remembered from DC Comics.
