Which heroic characters in fiction have killed the most people in their own free will? When I mean "in their own free will", I am talking about heroes who killed the most people without being corrupted or mind controlled like Dark Phoenix and Parallax.

Punisher would be my first guess.

Wolverine? I know it's the most obvious one, after Punisher.

Captain Hero.


Also, if you count them, then the Power Rangers have a long history of killing monsters/aliens/demons/mutants.

Does Silver Surfer leading Galactus to populated worlds count?

He's not really doing it of true free will considering he's:

1) Not entirely right in the head(Big G took his remorse away)

2) Only started doing it to save his planet, not cause he really wanted to.

Depends on how the OP defines free will.

The Doctor. Wiped out virtually all of the Daleks and Time Lords during the Time War. Don't know exactly how many people that is (assuming you include Daleks as people), but in the episode Dalek, the Doc reveals that ten million Dalek ships were wiped out...

Yup, the Doctor is genocidal on a level Adolf Hitler used to have wetdreams about.

To be fair...well...they are Daleks.

Lobo?

@Wjow - and also, most of them are evil beings threatening to cause grevious harm to innocents.

Also, the Power Rangers.

I would have to say Wolverine too. I mean the guy has been alive for centuries and has fought in just about every major war since the American Civil War (maybe others before that too, my Wolverine history is a little rusty). The Punisher is also another obvious choice since, once he starts killing, he's like the Energizer Bunny.

Really? I could have swore there was a mini in which he and Sabertooth fought together back in the civil war? Oh, well. I stand corrected then.

I think there was a series of comics set in the Civil War, with various modern characters.

There has to be some cosmic equivalent of the Punisher out there.

If we are discounting Who my best guest would be Japanese heroes. Its standard fair to kill your villains. Some have pretty big kill lists.

I wonder how many people Luke Skywalker killed when he blew up the first Death Star.

Out of people I consider "heroes" acting of "free will" Punisher and Wolverine seem to be the first ones that come to mind.

Hmmmm... can't think of any DC characters that are considered "heroes" that even come close. Seems like Marvel cornered the market on lovable murderers.

A crap-ton no doubt. But they were all Imperial fascists so that's OK by me. :evilsmile:

How is the Doctor so much more powerful than the Timelords and Daleks? I thought he was a Timelord himself?

Honestly, everytime someone goes mach 500 or Thunderclaps within a populated area, they should kill at least twenty people.

OTOH, Hulk rarely ever kills anyone, regardless an insanely long history of him randomly throwing buildings, trees, cars, trucks, tanks, airplanes and a various assortment of heroes and villains at anything nearby.

Apparently thats his second superpower. Area effect nullifier!

Some video game characters have pretty high body counts. Think of all the enemies that Mario, Link, and Samus have killed. And Samus has blown up planets full of Space Pirates, Metroids, X-Parasites, etc. Mario has killed countless Goombas, Koopas, and other assorted enemies when he blew up various castles, airships, and other fortresses. In almost every Mario game, entire armies of enemies are killed when he saves the day. Heck, he, along with E. Gadd, destroyed the remnants of an entire race of people. As for Link, think of all the Moblins and undead creatures he has slain in order to save Hyrule. In addition to those, I'd say that Master Chief has killed a lot of enemies in his time, as have several 2D platformer protagonists.

Do the undead really count?

I don't really know. Link's killed enough normal guys in his games to have a pretty high body count, nowhere on the level of Mario or Samus, but still, it's not insignificant. Still you do bring up a good point:

Question to the OP - should the undead actually count in a hero's body count?

If they act like living creatures, like vampires, then yes. But if they are simply animated bodies, like zombies, then no.
