Top 80 Marvel Heroes
A personal ranking of who I think are the 80 most important Marvel Comics heroes. Not my favourites, but who I think have had the biggest impact on the 616 universe, and who are its biggest stars. Ideally based equally on Earth-616 now, and throughout history. That said, it used to reflect the Bendis era of 2004-2012 more than anything, and is now starting to increasingly reflect the modern Post Secret Wars era instead.
Note: Although the final decisions are made subjectively by me, to help me make those decisions I use a spreadsheet, ranking heroes based on a weighted score that combines their Total Comic Book Appearances, Comic Appearances per Year (APY), Video Game/Toy Appearances, and Number of Comic Series as a Lead Character.
