Okay, this one is going to be tough. Because...basically, EVERYONE is pretty good at martial arts in comic books, right? I mean, she’s been holding back, but I’m pretty sure even Aunt May can bust out some wicked crane kicks if she needed to! So, let’s get this straight...EVERYONE’S opinion will be different when it comes to who is the best martial artist in mainstream comics. It’s really all relative.
