Yellow Superheroes: 15 Heroes Who Are Or Wear Yellow (Ranked)

When you hear ‘yellow’ (or in this case – read), what is the first thing that comes to mind? Daffodils? Chrysanthemums? Sunflowers? Or Maybe the vibrant tinge of yellow light in the skies during sunrise or sunset.

Just like these captivating beauties of sun-drenched nature, Yellow often signifies warmth, happiness, and optimism. But did you know that yellow also means betrayal and deceit?

Of course, I’m not saying if you like yellow or wear yellow clothes, you are a deceitful person. Unless you are. Are you?

My point is that some of the Yellow Superheroes in this list are good ones like Kid Flash, and a few of them have a deceitful and violent nature like The Demon Etrigan or Wolverine. We love to see both kinds in action.

With that let us dive into the list of superheroes who are or wear yellow.
