Heroes and villains come in all shapes and sizes. Some sling shields while others harness the power of the sun. Some break the sound barrier, while others can get as big or as small as they please. In celebration of a theme of green, we’ve found the most envious characters we could, good and bad, and listed them out. Never again will you wonder who the best green comic book character is.

5. The Hulk

First appearance: The Incredible Hulk #1 (1962)

This one is pretty self-explanatory. Gamma-irradiated, man-turned-monster, The Hulk is a super powerful being that once sat on the sun and couldn’t die. Though Bruce Banner, a mild-mannered scientist is under the green skin, The Hulk is more than green with rage. Hulk smash!

4. Captain Planet

First appearance: Captain Planet and the Planeteers (1990)

Didn’t expect this guy, huh? The man of most our childhoods, Captain Planet, is the most environmentally friendly hero out there. He recycles, he cleans up coasts and he passes his knowledge on to children. I bet the theme song is stuck in your head now. Go forth Planeteers!

3. Green Goblin

First appearance: The Amazing Spider-Man #14 (1964)

Ah, the greatest villain in Spider-Man’s rogue gallery. Sure, you may think of him as Willem Dafoe, but many know the Goblin as a man in a mask with a purple beanie thing. But he’s fairly green, and more than green with envy of Spider-Man’s powers. Godspeed, Spider-Man.

2. Doop

First appearance: X-Force #116 (2001)

Now, you probably haven’t heard of the good sir, Doop, who is rather green. To make this short, here is a taste of Doop’s powers: flight, healing factor, superhuman strength and durability, physical malleability, can replicate objects, extra-dimensional void that can store things. Also, just look at that face.

1. Green Arrow

First appearance: More Fun Comics (1941)

Green Arrow, AKA Oliver Queen, the savior of Starling City, is a lot like Marvel’s Hawkeye, except he works on his own and has a pretty rad beard, sometimes. Queen fights some pretty street-level villains, but still comes to the call when universal threats rear their ugly mugs. Oliver Queen, you have not failed this city!
