Flying, super strength, speed, many can be the extraordinary abilities that a superhero has. But there is one thing that everyone agrees on: They generate euphoria when they take off their shirt!

There’s at least one bare-chested-male moment in – almost – every movie, which might just be an excuse for the actors to show off their hard-earned muscles after months of training. The fans don’t complain about that.

Yes, every shirtless scene in the superhero ones would serve to rank how unnecessary it is. But obviously, we won’t do that, we will rank them by how hot they are.
