Red Superheroes: Top 25 Heroes Who Are or Wear Red (Ranked)

Heroes come in different colors, playing significant roles in comics and making characters exhilarating to read. Today, we are focusing on the specific superheroes who are or wear red. We all know red stands for many things like revolt, anger, love, and courage. While penning down the list, we have found that many red superheroes have similar personalities to what red stands for. Many superheroes will also feature from Hell, as popular culture shows Hell in a red form.

As red is one of the brightest colors in the comics, we will discuss the 25 most superheroes associated with the color red.

#25 The Crimson Bolt - Red Superheroes

Publisher: Independent
First Appearance: Super of 2010

Crimson Bolt is a vigilante superhero featured as the protagonist of the 2010 movie Super

Frank Dabo, who had an abusive childhood, always suffered from multiple hallucinations of God and the Devil as his father flogged him to follow Christianity. Though he became a religious person, religion never helped him at all. His wife left him for a drug lord named Jacques. 

As Frank knew that Sarah was a drug addict, he went to a comic book store for inspiration and became a superhero named Crimson Bolt without any superpowers.

Crimson Bolt is a superhero who beats his opponent brutally. As his superhero name suggests, he wears a homemade red jumpsuit, and his costume is padded around his shoulders and knees. His mask and helmet are also red. Though Crimson Bolt has no superpowers, he does not have any fear of bringing true justice.

But the truth was something else, as he was the son of the supervillain Crime Boss, Johnny G. As it turned out, Red Mist always hated the superheroes and betrayed both Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl by tricking them into getting captured. After this betrayal, Red Mist’s name was changed into The Mother F**ker.

Publisher: DC Comics
First Appearance: Batman #357 in 1983

The 19th rank holder on our list is a former Boy Wonder of DC Comics, Jason Todd. Jason received lots of hate when he was Batman’s sidekick. So, Dennis O’Neil decided to kill off Jason as Robin with the result of the audience, which favored Jason’s death. 

In the comics, Jason was brutally murdered by Joker but was revived by the Lazarus Pit. Jason had a troubled childhood and was taken in by Batman when he found him stealing Batmobile parts. 

After Jason’s death, Batman blamed himself for failing to save him. Though Red Hood seems to be a villain and brutal compared to Batman’s philosophy, he is one of the best anti-heroes in DC Comics after almost wiping out all the criminals of Gotham.

Red Hood’s costume is not red, but his helmet and the bat logo are only red-colored. Jason as Red Hood gained vast popularity, which he didn’t have as Robin. This blood-thirsty anti-hero is everything that Batman is not.

Victoria Wingate fell in love with Marduk Kurios, who controls multiple hells in the Marvel Universe. As a result, Satana and Hellstorm were born as offspring of their love. They stayed for a while at Greentown in Massachusetts. Though his brother did not embrace his lineage, Satana had no problem accepting her demon origins. That is why Satana is more experienced in using her powers than his brother, Hellstorm.

#15 Etrigan the Demon - Red Superheroes

Publisher: DC Comics

Another Justice League Dark member on our list is Etrigan the Demon. Etrigan is an odd one, as he is not accepted on both Earth and Hell.

Though there were two origin stories of this demon, the common thing is that he is from the Arthurian era. Merlin summoned his half-brother Etrigan from Hell and merged him with Jason Blood, who was depicted as a Druid. He was given the role of defending Camelot even in the modern age. Thus, Jason became immortal.

This fire-breathing, poetry-loving yellow demon always wears a red skin-tight costume with a blue cape on his back. Though Jason can be killed in his human form, Etrigan is immortal.

Though his origin story was changed a few times, he started his career as a thief. Patrick “Eel” O’Brian was assigned to a robbery at Crawford Chemical Works, and the situation went wrong. He was shot dead by the security guard, but he did not die as his body fell into a large container of an unknown chemical. 

After returning to his senses, he found himself among the monks as they rescued him. Patrick found out that the chemical gave him the power of elasticity. Coming under those monks’ influence, Eel took Plastic Man’s name and became a superhero.

During World War II, Hellboy was summoned by the Mad Monk, Grigori Rasputin, to bring chaos to Earth. But Allied Forces rescued the demonic child. Professor Broom, the founder of the Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense, took the child under his wing, made him a paranormal investigator, and helped people from all the demonic and evil threats.

Publisher: DC Comics

DC Comics’ Red Tornado, another Justice League member, to make our list. Red Tornado is treated like Marvel’s Vision, but their abilities are different than one another. 

There were two tornado entities. Tornado Champion was on the good side, and with the help of the Justice League, the evil version, Tornado Tyrant, was defeated. As he decided to stay on Earth, he took over the body of an android designed by Professor T.O. Morrow to defeat the Justice Society of America. With his newfound body, Red Tornado decided to become a superhero and joined the Justice League of America.

#11 Hell Storm

#11 Hell Storm - Red Superheroes

Publisher: Marvel Comics
First Appearance: Ghost Rider #1 in 1973

We cannot exclude Satana’s brother, Hellstorm, from our list as he is another superhero associated with red. Daimon is also half-human and half-demon, like his sister and more powerful than her.

Hellstorm and Satana’s origins are the same, but he defied his father’s devil lineage and embraced his mother’s human identity. He lacked dark and demonic skills like his sister but started to gain experience after becoming a demonologist. After some time, he started teaming up with other dark superheroes of Marvel.

Though the Son of Satan uses his powers for the betterment of society, he lacks control over his true demonic form. In the classic comics, Daimon appears in red trousers with a trident in his hand. But his later appearances looked duller, and he started wearing a red overcoat with a bald head and his iconic trident.

Publisher: Marvel Comics
First Appearance: Tales of Suspense #39 in 1963

Without the emergence of Marvel Studios, Ironman did not have that much popularity. Still, Robert Downey Jr. took the character to a new level and has become a pop-cultural symbol of superheroes.

Tony Stark, the son of Howard Stark, created his first Ironman armor when he was kidnapped. He stopped developing weapons and built his armor with his high intellect and vast wealth. Tony also played a significant role in assembling the Avengers team.

Ironman appeared in silver-colored armor for the first time in the comics. With the character’s evolution, his look changed into the famous red and golden armor.

First Appearance: The Uncanny X-Men #107 in 1977

Kallark, with the codename Gladiator, is the loyal protector of the Shi’ar throne. Because of his loyalty to his throne, Gladiator is mostly seen fighting Earth’s superheroes.

As the best fighter of the Shi’ar Empire, he fought many battles and became the Praetor of the Shi’ar Imperial Guard. After his massive involvement in the Shi’ar-Kree War, Kallark was promoted to the position of Majesty by the people of the Shi’ar populace, even after Lilandra’s death.

#5 Deadpool

#5 Deadpool - Red Superheroes

Publisher: Marvel Comics
First Appearance: New Mutants #98 in 1991

Deadpool had a different fan base even before coming to the cinematic universe. Readers often think that Marvel created this character as a parody of DC’s Deathstroke. 

This mad mutant was not like that. Wade Wilson became a mercenary, but his incurable brain cancer forced him to be a Weapon X program test subject. He thought that this might cure his disease. Though Wade successfully survived the experiment, the event left him mentally unbalanced. This fourth-wall-breaking superhero still acts as a mutant mercenary who kills for money. 

Deadpool always wears a red and black costume which has lots of resemblance to Spiderman’s costume design. This ‘Merc with a mouth’ is famous for his brutality and dark comedy.

Powers:

  • Controlled Bone Growth

Orion is mainly shown using a device to travel in the comics and TV shows named Astro Harness.

#3 Shazam

#3 Shazam - Red Superheroes

Publisher: DC Comics
First Appearance: Whiz Comics #2 in 1940

Captain Marvel’s first journey from Fawcett Publications to DC Comics is no less than amazing. Because of Marvel’s Captain Marvel, DC renamed Billy’s superhero alter-ego to Shazam.

Young Billy Batson became Shazam with the power of Solomon’s wisdom, Hercules’ strength, Atlas’ stamina, courage from Achilles, Mercury’s speed, and the power of Zeus. In the Darkseid War comic saga, these Greek gods’ borrowed powers were replaced by the DC’s New Gods: Zonuz, Atë, S’ivaa, H’ronmeer, Anapel, and Mamaragan. These New Gods made Shazam more powerful.

Shazam wears a red skin-tight costume; that is enchanted with magic and white half of his height cape on his back. Shazam is one of those rare superheroes who can fight against Superman on the same level.

  • Berserker Strength

#2 Scarlet Witch - Red Superheroes

Publisher: Marvel Comics
First Appearance: The X-Men #4 in 1964

Wanda Maximoff, aka, The Scarlet Witch, is one of the most powerful superheroes associated with red. 

Wanda is the daughter of Magneto, and she developed mutant abilities like her brother in their childhood days. She developed a romantic relationship with both Wonder Man and Vision. Though the MCU has changed almost everything about Wanda’s origin stories, some things are still the same between them.

Wanda always wears a red costume with a cape of the same color, and the live-action version has maintained this about Wanda. Wanda’s magic spells are also shown in the color red in the MCU. Despite having vast overpowered abilities, we cannot put her in the top spot as she is not mentally stable.
