From DC and Costume Collection, comes this great piece showing exactly how tall the members of the DCU are. From Robin to Swamp Thing, you can figure out exactly where you rank. I am Aquaman. This leaves me somehow feeling less cool than we did the Marvel one and I ended up in the company of Nick Fury and The Punisher. But…..hey…..trident! How exactly did they determine the heights? I’m so glad you asked….and I will be lazy and let them tell you:
By thoroughly researching the DC Wikia database and other sources, we’ve been able to accurately compare 21 different superheros on an infographic hand-drawn in the classic comic book style. And yes, Superman IS taller than Batman. By one inch.
With the upcoming release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and The Justice League, you can get even more of an insight into the true physicality of these DC Comics superheroes. Some of them might surprise you!
Robin, for instance, is only 4’6” and still in his teens. Our representation of Robin is the latest revision of the character and Bruce Wayne’s biological son, Damian. The first Robin, Dick Grayson, eventually becomes the vigilante superhero Nightwing after outgrowing his status as Batman’s side-kick.
And who would have thought any female superhero could be taller than Wonder Woman? Those alien genetics inherited by Starfire must be good for producing tall and powerful heroines.
Regardless of what height they really are, there’s nothing stopping you from walking in the shoes of your favourite DC superhero.
