Here is the top ten 
User: Mainline wrote some of the aspects of our heroic team.

List items

  • Batman - Mastermind, Bankroll / Gadgets / Science, Pragmatism. Of course the Bruce Wayne Batman won with 17 votes almost qualifying twice. People could have voted for someone else as he was the first to make the team but they still backed their hero.

  • Superman - Leader, Flying Brick, Moral Certainty. Just like Batman people kept voting for Superman, and he got thirteen votes.

  • Wolverine - Bruiser, Frontline Fodder, Moral Ambiguity. Just like Batman people kept voting for Wolverine, and he got thirteen votes.

  • Flash - Support, Speedster / Healer / Teleporter, Optimism. The Wally West Flash won out here, and got twelve votes.

  • Spider-Man - Damsel / Mascot, Uh... webbing / scientist /restraints?, Comedic Relief (funny man to Wolvie's straight man; or comic to Wally's feed in a comedy duo / double act. Spider-man got twelve votes

  • Wonder Woman got eleven votes.

  • Captain America was a shock to the team not because he made it but because about 200 votes came in before he got a single vote. Steve Rogers was Captain America to make the list.

  • The Green Lantern had two members make the team. Because of this we are going to use up this one spot for both characters who each got ten votes, and you the reader can decide who you would put here. Guy Gardner and Hal Jordan.

  • Thor was the last to be nominated and got a lot of his votes down the stretch.

  • Zatanna - Mage, Magical Swiss-Army Knife. Zatanna was the dark horse of the team. She was not expected by me to make the list but was the sixth to be nominated to the team and the first woman.

Martian Manhunter didn't even get a single vote, that's quite shocking to me.

I agree that no votes for Martian Manhunter was a surprise, as well as Zatana winning easily. I would have liked to have seen it be a little more Marvel/DC balanced, but it is all good. I love both but am slightly more Marvel myself. Another thing that was interesting was no one really put any of the big big guns on there besides eternity, for example, if I was to create the most powerful superheros I would have chosen the likes of Galactus, Pheonix, Living Tribunal (I don't remember if Beyonder got a vote or not, but even if he did, it seems like if you want to get the ultimate list, you want to get the strongest), Specter, etc. I understand it was people voting for their favorite though, so it turned out to be a lot of fun:).

Awesome that Zatanna made it. Besides that, the list is so standard. I personally, am disappointed.
 
But I still recommend it since it was a lot of fun and such a brilliant undertaking. Great job, Liberty.

6 and 4 actually.  And every person was either a member of the JLA or the Avengers.  I guess it's to be expected that those teams put together would be the "ultimate greatest" superhero team.

COME ON!   325 people worked on this list for a month and someone hit no without even having a backbone enough to at least say why.  What other list went through this much effort?

What's cool about this list is it has the best (or most notable) Justice League and Avengers members. Not a bad list.

Awesome list!  Wish I would've noticed this contest sooner.  I would've voted for He-Man.

This is a cool idea and list.   
Zatanna making the list is surprising and cool due to her not being a long-standing, well-known in non-comic circles, multi-media and iconic character.

Love the approach and the care taken to put this together.  Great work.  I would have tossed my vote to Batman (Bruce Wayne) as well.

I agree. As weird as this seems DC is actually less complicated and Marvel has just too many story lines going at once. They have also outplayed the Avengers and the X Men. Nobody really cares about them anymore.

Jean Grey got no votes!? People you are crazy if you don't think she could make this alliance. Also one I was not surprised with but who I think should be in the team is Aquaman. He's kind of a badass.
