15 Superheroes With Cool Looking White Hair (Ranked)

The comic world is all about flashy costumes, vehicles, and weapons. We have no shortage of heroes to look good while saving the world. Many wear costumes that set them apart, and some even have hairstyles that turn heads.

Colored hair is always one way to stand out in a crowd, and these heroes chose a color that would be hard to miss.

Let’s take a look at some super cool superheroes with white hair!

#15 Dove

#15 Dove - Superheroes With White Hair

First Appearance: Showcase #75 (June 1968)

Kicking off this list is the hero – Dove.

Dove is the other half of Dove and Hawk. The duo has been part of the Teen Titans on many occasions and has been a pivotal part of their team’s missions. 

Just like a dove which is usually seen as a symbol of peace, this superhero is a shining beacon for peace. Everything about her screams peace, from her mannerisms, costume, and hair. This crime-fighter can even transform into another costume that almost looks entirely like a dove. 

Most of the time, she borderline looks like an angel. Depicted as a compassionate member of the Titans TV show, she is always on a mission to help anyone in need. Her white-themed costume and hair make her look non-threatening to her allies but if you’re the enemy, better run the other way.

It also makes sense for a superhero to be called ‘Dove’ and have white hair. It’s right there.

Powers:

  • Hypervigilance
  • Super durability
  • Dove transformation
  • Flight
  • Enhanced agility

#14 Killer Frost

#14 Killer Frost - Superheroes With White Hair

First Appearance: Firestorm #3 (June 1978)

This Flash Villain has been known to be quite cool. Pun intended. Her powers allow her to control temperature and have been a menace to the Flash as cold seems to slow him down. She is not all bad, though.

Killer Frost has found herself on both sides of the law since her introduction in the comics. We see the TV adaptation of her go through this struggle as well. However, something she doesn’t have to struggle with is looking good. When in complete Frost form, she takes on an icy appearance that also turns her hair white. Her usual depiction of her ice form has her wearing a short haircut, which works well with her spiky, icy form. 

The Arrow-verse version of Killer Frost also sports a white color for her hair, and there is no denying that it just looks good.

Powers:

  • Cold and Ice manipulation
  • Heat absorption
  • Enhanced durability

#13 Speed

#13 Speed - Superheroes With White Hair

First Appearance: The Vision and the Scarlet Witch #12 (September 1986)

Speed is the son of Scarlett Witch and the brother of Wiccan. Like his Uncle Quicksilver, Speed can run at superhuman speeds and has become a regular face in the comics and has made a few appearances in the MCU. Speed is not one of the fastest speedsters in existence, but what he lacks in speed, he seems to make for in style.

Speed has a costume that seems to be styled similar to that of Quicksilver, with a slightly different color. However, his hair appears to be the same as his uncle’s. As you can imagine, that looks stylish while moving at the speed of sound. We haven’t seen Speed on the big screen yet, but if his uncle’s scenes are any indication, it would be a treat to watch him move, with everything around staying still. 

The silver hair never fails to look good on anyone.

Powers:

  • Super speed
  • Enhanced durability
  • Increased agility
  • Enhanced healing

#12 Odin

#12 Odin - Superheroes With White Hair

First Appearance: Journey into Mystery #86 (November 1962)

The All-father is one of the most powerful beings in the Marvel Universe and the King of Asgard. His power’s limits are unknown, but if he fathered the God of Thunder, he must be scary strong. His entire attire fits that of a God-King, including his hair.

Odin has been around for a long time, and his white hair is probably a result of his age, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t look good. It is hard to ignore the images we see in the comics of Odin in Golden armor, the white beard, and the eye patch. Truly spectacular to look at.

The combination of the white hair and beard makes you want to bow down to him and follow him into battle. Now we know why Thor has such lovely hair. He got it from his Daddy.

Powers:

  • Super strength
  • Enhanced speed
  • Enhanced durability
  • Flight
  • Weather control

#11 Silver Sable

#11 Silver Sable - Superheroes With White Hair

First Appearance: The Amazing Spider-Man #265 (June 1985)

Unlike most of the other heroes on this list, Silver Sable is not exactly on anyone’s side. She is simply a mercenary that offers her services to the highest bidder. Sable has no powers, but her training and skills make her one of the deadliest guns-for-hire in the Marvel Universe. 

This merc for hire has worked with Spidey on many occasions to fight bad guys, and it becomes apparent that she is lethal, dangerous, and cool. Even her costume is a head turner, and her silver hair adds to the long list of why she is fabulous. 

Is it just us, or does Spidey seem to like people with Silver Hair?

Powers:

  • Professional Marksman
  • Martial artist
  • Expert hand-to-hand combatant
  • Weapons specialist

#10 Rose Wilson

#10 Rose Wilson - Superheroes With White Hair

First Appearance: Deathstroke #15 (October 1992)

Rose Wilson is the daughter of Deathstroke, and it’s safe to say that she takes after her father. Thankfully, she is on the good guy’s side. We think. Rose has been a member of the Teen Titans and has fought alongside the young heroes on many occasions. Though she started as an apprentice to her father, he soon cut ties with him.

Deathstroke is a master assassin who can go toe to toe with Batman. As a character, he is pretty cool, excluding the bad things he has done. Rose inherits all of her father’s powers and pre-cognitive abilities that can see the future to some extent. If these things weren’t enough, her costume and hairstyle are like cherries on a cake. 

Rose has white hair that simply looks supreme when she is in battle. Guess she got her badassery from her father.

Powers:

  • Expert hand-to-hand combatant
  • Weapons specialist
  • Accelerated healing 
  • Enhanced Agility
  • Enhanced mental abilities
  • Danger sense

#9 Zealot

#9 Zealot - Superheroes With White Hair

First Appearance: WildC.A.T.S. #1 (August 1992)

Zealot is a superhero who is part of the Wildstorm universe and is part of the WildC.A.T.S. squad. She might be the least known superhero on this list, but she is still phenomenal.

Zealot is from the planet Kherbum and is a highly trained individual possessing superhuman abilities. She is an expert martial artist, and a sharp katana is her weapon of choice. An enhanced alien with mastery in combat arts. These things would be enough to make her one of the most incredible characters out there. You should know that she has silver hair to make it even better. Sweet, right? 

Her style seems to pierce just as hard as her sword.

Powers:

  • Telepathy
  • Teleportation
  • Expert martial artist
  • Weapons specialist
  • Enhanced strength
  • Enhanced agility

#8 Phyla-Vell

#8 Phyla-Vell - Superheroes With White Hair

First Appearance: Captain Marvel Volume 5 #16 (Dec. 2003)

Phyla-Vell is a superhero who has gone by many names – Martyr, Captain Marvel, and Quasar. She took on the mantle of Captain Marvel after her brother went bonkers and destroyed the universe. Oh, and she also created a new one.

It will probably be long before we are introduced to these characters in the MCU, but Phyla would be an interesting character to see. She is the daughter of Mar-Vell and possesses all the powers that the Captain Marvels have.

Phyla’s is very similar to the MCU Captain Marvel but has a darker undertone. The white hair paired with this costume fits her “I could kill you if I wanted to” Vibe.

Powers:

  • Cosmic awareness
  • Flight
  • Energy projection
  • Enhanced strength
  • Enhanced agility

#7 Black Cat

#7 Black Cat - Superheroes With White Hair

First Appearance: The Amazing Spider-Man #194 (July 1979)

Black Cat, a villain turned hero, has often been a keen love interest to Spiderman. The name is a play on a household myth that you would have bad luck if a black cat crosses your path and her abilities have the power to do just that. It affects probability fields and gives others lousy luck.

Due to her lifestyle, this on-again-off-again hero has had many instances of bad luck herself. What she got lucky with is great hair. Every flip and movement is followed by long, luscious white hair, and it’s a delight to look at it. The white hair ties in very nicely to her costume, and we get why Spiderman was so intrigued by her.  

The combination of her white her and costume is hard to miss.

Powers:

  • Enhanced strength
  • Psionic abilities
  • Expert martial artist
  • Master thief
  • Enhanced agility

#6 Old Man Logan

#6 Old Man Logan - Superheroes With White Hair

First Appearance: Fantastic Four Volume 1 #558 (August 2008)

Wolverine is one of the most remarkable and coldest characters in the Marvel Universe. His accelerated healing factor has kept him young for many years, and we’ve seen him don several looks over the years, the most famous being the yellow suit. 

However, as of late, the depiction of the old version of the mutant has garnered a lot of attention. The character was first shown long back, but Hugh Jackman’s portrayal of the hero on the big screen has made people stop in their tracks. How is it that even at that age, the man can look so good?

The old bitter persona ties into his character very well, and his entire look is comic accurate, right down to the white hair. For the first time, we see Logan with white/silverish hair, which just looks perfect. 

This has to be the only character that gets more badass as he ages.

Powers:

  • Accelerated healing
  • Enhanced strength
  • Increased agility
  • Retractable claws
  • Enhanced speed
  • Durability

#5 Quicksilver

#5 Quicksilver - Superheroes With White Hair

First Appearance: The X-Men #4 (March 1964)

According to the comics, Quicksilver is a mutant and the son of Magneto. But the MCU and other depictions have taken a different route for the character. Regardless of the various backstories, one thing seems to remain constant. The fantastic white hair.

Quicksilver can run at inhuman speeds and has been an integral part of most X-men storylines. In every iteration, we see him zip past opponents and obstacles with his silver, sleek hair flowing in the wind. X-men: Days of Future past gave us one of the most incredible movie scenes, with Quicksilver running through a kitchen and knocking guards out. 

He does it effortlessly with his silver hair swiftly flailing in slow motion while he breezes through at superhuman speeds is quite the cinematic treat.

Powers:

  • Accelerated healing
  • Super speed
  • Enhanced agility
  • Enhanced durability

#4 Storm

#4 Storm - Superheroes With White Hair

First Appearance: Giant-Size X-Men #1 (May 1975)

Storm is an Omega-level mutant and a core member of the X-men. As an essential member of the mutant team, she has been part of almost every X-Men story arc. Storm has assumed the role of the X-men’s leader many times and was even married to T’challa. 

We have seen the mutant take on different appearances over the years and played by various individuals, but the most iconic trait is the white hair. 

In the recent X-men: Apolokolips movie, we see Storm don a white mohawk, and we could not have asked for anything better. The scenes of Storm hovering in the air, eyes white, and her floating hair, come rushing each time you think of the character. Not to mention the fact that she calls down a literal storm. She is a comic book character that was put together well, down to her white hair.

Powers:

  • Weather manipulation
  • Flight
  • Atmokinesis

#3 Rogue

#3 Rogue - Superheroes With White Hair

First Appearance: Avengers Annual #10 (August 1981)

Rogue’s powers have always been very troublesome for her teammates. While she tries to do good, her powers often create problems for her, as he can drain the life force and take the powers of anyone she touches. It appears that anything she needs, she would have to take from someone else.

However, something she doesn’t need to rely on anyone else for is her awesome white hair. Rogue’s hair is iconic and makes the character easily identifiable. Though it is not all white, the white and brown blend makes it look flawless. 

The X-men animated series shot this character to fame, and her entire look has been a classic ever since. The big screen portrayal of the character incorporated the same hair, and the fans could not have been happier.

Powers:

  • Life absorption
  • Flight
  • Super strength
  • Enhanced speed
  • Enhanced durability

#2 Magneto

#2 Magneto - Superheroes With White Hair

First Appearance: The X-Men #1 (Sept. 1963)

Magneto has been described as one of the most powerful mutants and sometimes even the most powerful being on the planet. His powers allow him to manipulate magnetic fields, which means that he can control anything he wants as long as it has some degree of metal. 

Magneto’s powers make him a force to reckon with, not to mention very badass. Even his costume and hair are exemplary and make him hard to miss in a crowd, though he has never been one to hide.

Every iteration of the character sticks to the basics of his attire, especially his white hair. It is not seen too often because of his helmet, but it’s certainly there, and boy does it look good. 

Magneto’s views on mutants and their relationship with the world may be debatable, but that hair certainly is not. 

Powers:

  • Magnetokinesis
  • Magnetic force fields
  • Metal manipulation
  • Flight

#1 Cable

#1 Cable - Superheroes With White Hair

First Appearance: The New Mutants #87 (March 1990)

Cable, A mutant soldier from the future is the son of Scott Summers and Jean Grey. With two powerful parents, it is no surprise that he, too, turned into an absolute powerhouse. Cable is cybernetically enhanced and has the power to move things with his mind. It has not turned out great for anyone who has gone up against him.

We finally see the character in the recent Deadpool movie, and the makers did not disappoint. While the casting seemed apt, the best part was what he wore. Sure, it wasn’t precisely comic accurate, but the basics were all there, and it was enough to make most fans happy. The white hair, especially. 

The grayish-white hair of Cable is a staple for him and is part of almost every other character portrayal. It is also one of the things that make him recognizable. Since he is a soldier from the future, he also has a military haircut that fits in well.

No one does it better than Cable when it comes to looking fantastic.

Powers:

  • Cyberpathy
  • Telepathy
  • Cyber enhancements
  • Enhanced agility
  • Telekinesis
  • Enhanced strength
