The Best Brawlers/Fighters and Brutes

NecroshaThese badasses are skilled scrappers but they are not always muscle bound behemoths.They're not always the biggest or hulking brutes (but they usually are) and they're often more than just brawn. They don't always need a fighting style, technique or weapons they just need their fists and ridiculous strong-ness. These are the characters you never want to piss off.

List items

  • Though he is the Norse God of Thunder but he can also be known as the god of ass kicking. Though known for wielding the mighty Mjolnir, Thor is still very powerful and badass unarmed.

  • Wolverine had nightmares about how bad Cyber beat him. Cyber is one hell of a super-strong brawler...oh, yea and he has metal skin and not just any metal, but adamantium. Sure he has poison tipped claws and psychic abilities but his fists are what do most of his talking.

  • He is a genius with the powers of Superman (and then some) oh and he lacks the restraint and is an ego maniac!

  • I don't care what you think...I like Wonder Man. This ionic powerhouse has strength comparable to Thor, Hulk and Ms.Marvel which means he can punch really hard. He doesn't age, his ionic powers make him nearly invulnerable, allow him to fly, shoot and absorb energy and he can transform into his purple energy form. If that doesn't convince you he's a bad ass he also banged Scarlet Witch.

  • This adorable, cocky, punk is a mini-Gladiator, thus the name. The son of Gladiator has the confidence fueled powers (powers like Superman's), the arrogance and love of combat that make him practically unbeatable.

  • LOOK AT HIM HE'S HUGE and full of awesome. He has some interesting aspects to his powers too... he was pulverized and beaten to death but after a little while in the hospital he awoke bigger and stronger.

  • Grey is part Hulk and part Leader. Hulk's D.N.A. makes him a super-strong bad ass but Leader's D.N.A. makes him ridiculously smart. Think of him as the quarterback and chess club champ.

  • Wow, this is one lethal woman, she was Darkseid's bodyguard and can go toe to toe with Wonder Woman. This 7 foot tall goddess (figuratively and kind of literally)is a lady you never want to piss off.

  • This guy here is a tough fight even for the Hulk...yea he makes the list hands down.

  • A dumb, often villainous version of Superman...instead of heat vision and ice breathe he has frost vision and fire breathe...it's kinda funny.

  • A super strong 7 foot tall alien rock guy who tries to never use his power ring because he thinks its for sissy's, yea Hannu is badass brawler.

  • This is one bad dude, he is a magically powered power house that has been both good and bad (mostly bad). He is best known for smacking Billy Batson around while he is Captain Marvel.

  • Essentially he is the Hulk but a bad one...though more powerful. Though he is insane due to constant exposure to radiation.

  • The usual super-strengthed and durable brawler but he is insanely rich! He's the public face of the Guardians of the Globe, since he is a swell guy, this cocky guy has been with the Guardians since day 1 (even when his powers disappeared, but they came back even stronger)

  • She is kind of like Aquaman but with a phenomenal rack...think of her as lady Aquaman. She is just as super-strong and durable as Aquaman but with anger issues.

  • I love red heads and this lady is one badass ginger.

  • The often under rated Carol Danvers Is a power house no matter her guise: Binary, Warbird, Ms.Marvel,Captain Marvel. She is not only great at punching the hell out of evil/not-so-good doers but she can energy blast em' with her hands.

  • Luckily these 5 brothers get along well since they tend to share a body. Originally they only had the strength of 5 men now they gain the "strength" of their country and can become a giant. Steer clear of this guy or guys.

  • So Cap is technically not super-human but he is still strong as hell and is a skilled brawler, the guy punched Hitler. He may have mastered a bunch of fighting styles but the only things he needs are his fists...his shield helps too.

  • Grunge is a super-strong fighter but his ability to take become whatever matter he touches only makes him tougher.

  • Good ol' Juggy, he has been around for quite some time and rightfully so...he is a bow-nee-fide bad ass. He has been both good and bad, fought for right and wrong and no matter what side he is on you don't want to be on the opposite.

  • He is of course very similar to Aquaman (very strong, durable half human and good in the water)but also very different. A major difference is Namor can fly with his adorable ankle wings and he is a cocky jerk most of the time.

  • This guy maybe quite the scientific genius and military strategist but his most evident attribute is his hulking size and ginormous muscles. He is a natural brawler and usually only uses his ring for flight and to get in close to his enemy and beat them senseless, yep if he doesn't out smart you he'll just beat the crap out of you.

  • Another Superman type but he's evil...not good. He has hopped between alternate realities wreaking death and destruction but everyone needs a hobby.

  • This beautiful amazonian princess is mostly known for being able to kick major tookus. She has been known to slap Superman around every now and then, so don't make her mad.

  • He is everyone's favorite x-men. The caknuckle head has been killing and fighting for years you definitely want him to have your back. He is the best at what he does and what he does isn't nice...if you're not on his side and you hear snikt...its too late.

  • This fella, Mon-El, is a Daxamite which makes him as powerful as Superman so he can kick ass on a Superman level.

  • The Ever-Lovin' Blue-Eyed Thing is nearly unstoppable, he is a living brick wall with ridiculous strength. Its hard to win a fight against this kindhearted behemoth.

  • This guy is known for a few things 1)He is ridiculously strong 2)He is very hard to kill 3)His infamous battle cry...SPOON! He protects "The City" by beating the crap out of very "unique" bad guys.

  • Now this fella is a force to be reckoned with, he is both brain and brawn with plenty to spare. He is the man that broke the bat which is not an easy task I assume. He is actually more than only a fighter, he has deep moral code and his intellect has made him a great leader and strategist.

  • Good ole' Santo has led quite an exciting career amongst his fellow mutants. Rockslide is solid rock with a huge appetite and the knack for beating up those he wants to beat up. He can "shoot" his fists! Sure I like his more humanistic appearances like his original form in "New Mutants."

  • Rage...badass name. Little 14 year old Elvin has gotten to live every kids dream: he is "grown up" and a superhero. He is kind of like the Hulk the angrier he gets the stronger he becomes...awesome.

  • HE IS SUPERMAN WITH A GREEN LANTERN RING!!

  • Ursa is another Kryptonian...but bad and Zod's right hand gal. She is not nice, you can tell because she's always beating up people...superly.

  • This classy and stylish Brit, he has had the coolest uniforms/outfits,is fave of mine. Though his powers and their source have been inconsistent the one constant has been his ability to kick ass...and his arrogance.

  • Slade Wilson is a certifiable badass, known as Deathstroke the Terminator he has carved, shot and stabbed his way to the top of the mercenary chain. He has been a thorn to the best and brightest of the hero and villainy world. He was genetically altered to be the ultimate soldier...he's basically a one-eyed Batman, that kills.

  • Though his name is absolutely terrible he is actually awesome. He has been kicking Skeletor's and his minions asses for years. You know he's a badass since he fights in hairy underwear, I think.

  • DAUGHTER OF WONDER WOMAN! Definitely a bad-ass.

  • A lady version of Namor. So another super-strong, ankle winged human Atlantean hybrid that's good at beating up bad guys.

  • Not only is he an X-Man, he is ridiculously powerful. Super strength (which can be augmented by his anger issues),flight, energy blasts and he has cool looking "solar form." He has been kicking ass for years.

  • Well a powerful alien saved by Thor decided she wanted to be Thor. So, with her vast power she created her own hammer and shaped herself into a bad-ass Asgardian-like hero.

  • You know the story: he was rebuilt, better, stronger, faster. Now Steve Austin is an awesome cyberneticly enhanced ass kicker.

  • Not your average super-strong Kree warrior, he was spliced with (dramatic pause) a cockroach. His unique hybrid Kree DNA makes him even stronger and tougher than his fellow Kree, he is triple-jointed, can wall-crawl, his saliva can make others hallucinate and digest anything. Oh, and he has super-speed (at least 150 mph),heal fast, he can extend his nails making them razor sharp-and leave them to explode and he has nanobots that allow him to ignore pain. If his powers aren't enough he has weaponized gauntlets and has an unlimited arsenal! Noh-Varr = ULTIMATE BAD-ASS!

  • Yep, another Superman like fella. Better stay on his nice side.

  • Nothing like a wise-cracking, horror movie loving, semi-nerdy, metal skinned bad-ass. Trust me, he is awesome and good at kicking butt.

  • From meek to massive, from chump to champ, from puny to powerful, from geek to godly...you get it. Luther has gone through a lot in his short career but his "strange talent" makes him quite a bad-ass, the super-strong kind that can stop bullets with his skin.

  • The name pretty much says muscle bound brutes that punch hard. Actually the two are super strong brutes but they are actually ridiculously smart and make all sorts of gadgets/weapons. oh, and they aren't even twins they're clones and don't remember which is the original.

  • This jerk is capable of going toe to toe with Superman. He has a myriad of powers but all he really uses are his Omega beams/eye lasers and his colossal super-strength to dominate.

  • Name pretty much says it all. If the name isn't enough maybe the awesome tattoos, double knives and scariness say he is one hell of a fighter.

  • This imposing fella is another Superman type guy, meaning he can beat down the baddest of the bad.

  • Think Wonder Woman but...blonde and angrier. Oh, and hopefully she is in a good mood when you call her Wonder Girl or she will send you to the next state via her fist.

  • This buxom woman has a heart of gold and fists of steel (well they feel like it when she punches you). This super strong beauty is kind of She-Hulk like but when she gets angry she gets stronger, awesome.

  • Half-brother to Invincible and son of Omni-Man. So he's half Viltrumite half super-smart alien species meaning he's genetically destined to be a super-strong and incredibly smart bad-ass.

  • Kind of an odd story behind this beautiful bruiser but regardless if you get on her bad side she will throw a car at you.

  • A founding member of the wrecking crew and possibly the strongest. For years now Bulldozer has been fighting Marvel heroes with his fists and his head (literally).

  • The Apokolips native endured a rough life but after seeing Supergirl he decided to be a hero. Basically a super-strong teenager that can manipulate energy with a sweet Father Box (those boxes are like swiss-army knives to the New Gods).

  • A thorn in the shells of our favorite mutant turtles. He can dish out quite an ass whooping but he also tends to carry a rocket launcher, why you ask because he can...definite bad ass.

  • A big scary, three-eyed telepathic bad guy that can whop Superman...try to avoid him.

  • This foul-mouthed alcoholic super-strong Brooklynite does not get enough credit. Quite the bad bad-ass when it comes to a fight but what empresses me is he offended Captain America so bad Cap beat him up and washed his mouth out with soap...his exploit are ridiculously awesome.

  • The most adorable brawler I've seen. Not sure about the details but Le Bruiser besides being strong and tough is pretty fun, thankfully it seems she has put her smoking habit behind her.

  • Ugh, this immortal slob has seen it all and punched a many faces. Not only is this fun loving, hard drinking guy (often) fun to be around he can take a lickin' and keep on tickin' as well as punch bad people very well, if he is not to inebriated.

  • This goat footed (hoofed maybe) inhuman brute is quite the fighter. Not only is Gorgon strong and good with the punchy-punchy his goat legs allow him to create centralized earth quakes, yea he can make earth quakes with his feet/hooves. Though the strong silent type he is security expert of sorts as he is well experienced in protecting the Inhuman Royal Family, he has a vast knowledge of many different super powers as he trains new Inhumans after their Terrigenesis and he is a lover of hard-rock/metal.

  • so understanding all language seems lame but when really delved into, Cypher is an unstoppable badass. Body language and fighting styles can all be understood by Cypher, meaning he can "read" and understand it all...he can tell where a punch is going to go before its thrown, pretty badass nerd (though rarely used in this way, Necrosha showcases this well)

  • He's big, he's scary, and he's really strong . . . pretty much all you need to know, for all other questions refer to the intimidating picture of him.
