It seems like an eternity, the battle between DC and Marvel fans about which is better. Obviously, with Marvel Studios stepping up in the game introducing the MCU, DC also played its hand in the cinematic universe by introducing DCEU. But then as we all seen how bad that has turned out to be for the DCEU. Still, DCEU gave some best characters which did entertain us well. Let’s take a look at some of the most entertaining DCEU characters.
After lying about his age, Slade Wilson was sixteen years old when he first enlisted in the United States Army. In the early 1960s, he met Captain Adeline Kane who was amazed at how skilled Slade was and how quickly he adapted to modern conventions of warfare. The Army chose him for an experiment, aimed at making him a metahuman. He soon became a mercenary after that experiment was successful.
His abilities include heightened strength, agility, durability, and reflexes, and has the ability to utilize up to 90 percent of his brain capacity. He also possesses a regenerative healing factor that enables him to recover from physical injury much more rapidly than a normal human. In addition to being a tactical genius with years of military experience, Deathstroke is an expert in many forms of unarmed combat and martial arts as well, serving as a master of Bōjutsu, Boxing, Jojutsu, Judo, Jujitsu, Karate, and Ninjutsu.

She might not be the very welcoming of all heroes, but she certainly has some quirks which come with her. She steals the show when it comes to her. She has no superpowers, but she is quite a genius and her little quirks come handy in the dire situation like in Suicide Squad. Her dress which was totally redesigned from the comics but her look doesn’t seem to be copied from Joker as such. (Entertaining DCEU Characters)
Cyborg made his debut in Justice League. His flashes from his tragic back-story was given in Justice League, but it was surprising for a character to be in an ensemble movie without having a stand-alone movie. Depending on how Aquaman does on the box-office, he may get one too.
Cyborg’s body has been replaced by advanced mechanical parts (hence the name Cyborg), granting him superhuman strength, speed, stamina, and flight. His mechanically-enhanced body, much of which is metallic, is far more durable than a normal human body. Cyborg’s internal computer system can interface with external computers. Other features include an electronic ‘eye’ which replicates vision but at a superhuman level. Also, he has an IQ of 170. (Entertaining DCEU Characters)
General Zod was also an alien of Krypton like the superman. Michael Shannon played the character pretty well and definitely carried out the character’s intensity well enough to make him one of the most entertaining characters in DCEU.
Zod’s abilities like all Kryptonians under a yellow sun are the high-level superhuman strength, speed and endurance sufficient to stand against Superman and other Kryptonians; super hearing; x-ray vision; telescopic, microscopic and heat vision; super-breath and freeze-breath; virtual invulnerability; accelerated healing and flight. Due to his background as a Kryptonian general, Zod possesses a detailed knowledge of military tactics, battle strategy, and is a relatively competent military leader. (Entertaining DCEU Characters)
The Flash comes in at number six. Ezra Miller nailed his performance as The Flash and entertained the audience with his quirkiness.
All incarnations of the Flash can move, think, and react at light speeds as well as having the superhuman endurance that allows them to run incredible distances. Some, notably later versions, can vibrate so fast that they can pass through walls in a process called quantum tunnelling, travel through time and can also lend and borrow speed. They can also heal more rapidly than an average human. In addition, most incarnations have an invisible aura around their respective bodies that protects them from air friction and the kinetic effects of their powers. (Entertaining DCEU Characters)
Jason Momoa does a great job at playing Aquaman, his personality is one of a kind and Jason manages to play it pretty well to keep us entertained.
Aquaman’s abilities include a telepathic connection with marine life and high-level superhuman strength, speed and endurance. He can swim as fast as 3,000 miles per hour. He also can leap up to 6 miles. (Entertaining DCEU Characters)
Wonder Woman’s love cannot be some ordinary person. Her choice would be definitely extra-ordinary considering her extraordinary nature. While Steve’s not a DCEU traditional superhero, but he did some heroic things to land him in this list. His sacrifice at the end of Wonder Woman proved you don’t need superpowers or billions of dollars to be a hero.
Steve entertained the audiences well and his relationship with Wonder Woman is definitely fans are wanting to see more. (Entertaining DCEU Characters)
Superman, the classic DC hero who has been made into DCEU characters for quite some time with continual reboots. But Henry Cavill plays the role of the Kryptonian alien so well, that DC finally started moving on with him.
Superman’s abilities include are a high-level superhuman strength, speed and endurance sufficient to stand against other Kryptonians; super hearing; x-ray vision; telescopic, microscopic and heat vision; super-breath and freeze-breath; virtual invulnerability; accelerated healing and flight.

At number 2 is again one of the most loved classic DC character – The Batman. Ben Affleck’s performance as the superhero made such a great impact on the audience and critics that it is now hard to imagine Batman without Ben Affleck’s face.
Batman doesn’t have any inherent superpowers, but he instead has genius intellect, great detective skills and athletic prowess. His scientific knowledge and wealth give him access to most of the advanced technologies. He’s also been trained in different martial arts.
The best DCEU character as you would have already guessed in the start of the article is Wonder Woman. Gal Gadot plays the character so well that she’s been the sole hope for the DCEU’s future.
Diana is depicted as a masterful athlete, acrobat, fighter and strategist, trained and experienced in many ancient and modern forms of armed and unarmed combat, including exclusive Amazonian martial arts.
