Top Five Bare-Chested Marvel Superheroes!

The following are the top ten bare-chested superheroes of Marvel comics!

5. Thor

Thor is this low on the list because his tenure as a bare-chested superhero did not last that long.

It was actually amusing that it lasted as long as it DID! Thor had a new costume designed for him by Mike Deodato, which he was eventually going to wear. However, after a creative team change (Warren Ellis being replaced by Bill Loebs), the whole "donning the costume" plot kept getting put off, and then Onslaught happened, and when the heroes returned, Thor was back in his OLD costume! So Thor never got a chance to wear his Deodato costume (although it appeared on a lot of covers).

4. Hellstorm

How cool is it that in the early 70s, Marvel had a title called Son of Satan?!

In any event, Daimon Hellstrom is also low on the list because he was not ALWAYS bare-chested, as he once had a very normal superhero-esque costume.

3. Thing

The Thing would be higher, but, well,

A. His bare chest is a bunch of rocks


B. He wore costumes where his chest WASN'T bare.

2. Hulk

The Hulk probably SHOULD be on the list, but I dunno...it just seems to me that he should lose some demerits for the fact that his bare chest look is not of his own volition, ya know?

Not like the #1 pick, who CONSCIOUSLY decides to go bare-chest all the time, and that pick is...

1. Namor

This guy has been working the speedo look for over 60 years!!!

In addition, even when Namor DID wear a costume, it featured...yep, you guessed it, a BARE CHEST!

Anyone you think I overlooked?

I find it quite sexist that there are no women on this list, Brian.

But what about when Namor did have a shirt when he was a businessman, huh?

No love for the perennially bare-chested Silver Surfer?

Silver Surfer is not bare-chested!!

That is a protective covering, not skin!!!

That wasn't really his costume, though, Ronald; that's just what he wore to work.

And I agree with Sean. Bad form, Brian. Bad form. :)

You have to specify, Ken!

Whitmore or Hutch!

Or, if you prefer, Good Sean and Evil Sean!

Wow. There ARE two Seans! Who'd a thunk that name'd ever catch on!

How about both? I can agree with two people, can't I? Just pretened I wrote "the Seans" instead of "Sean". Yeah, that's the ticket.
