Does he have the beefy body of Chris Evans or Henry Cavill? No. But hey, he landed Emma Stone, so clearly Andrew Garfield’s got something going for him!

1 /9: Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man

He may not be a sex symbol in the same capacity as hot-bodied younger studs like Chris Evans, but Robert Downey Jr. holds his own with the likes of other superheroes as Tony Stark in the Iron Man and Avengers films.

2 /9: Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk

Nothing against Eric Bana or Ed Norton, but we were beyond happy to see Mark Ruffalo cast as the new modern-day Hulk of the Avengers movies. We think he is cute, cute, cute — and incredibly sweet to boot!

3 /9: Jessica Alba as Sue Storm

We’d be remiss if we made a list of the hottest superheroes and didn’t (1) include a woman and (2) have that woman be Jessica Alba as Sue Storm in The Fantastic Four.

4 /9: Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye

Just because Hawkeye is the least famous of the current crop of cinematic superheroes doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be paying attention to Jeremy Renner, the actor rocking the bows and arrows.

5 /9: Henry Cavill as Superman

It’s a bird…it’s a plane… no, it’s a bona fide fox! Henry Cavill is the next in a long line of actors who have donned Superman’s signature electric-blue and bright-red ensemble.

6 /9: Christian Bale as Batman

Who doesn’t love a man with a little mystery? As Gotham’s billionaire Bruce Wayne/vigilante crusader Batman, Christian Bale is cloaked in it.

7 /9: Chris Hemsworth as Thor

Not even all of the hullabaloo surrounding his bro’s on/off-again engagement to Miley Cyrus could distract us from Chris Hemsworth’s otherworldly powers of attraction as Thor.

8 /9: Chris Evans as Captain America

When it comes to being hot and a superhero in Hollywood, Chris Evans gets bonus points in both categories — he plays The Human Torch AND Captain America!

9 /9: Ryan Reynolds as Green Lantern

It doesn’t really matter what Ryan Reynolds is doing — he’s just frickin’ hot and mind-numbingly so in full-body spandex as the Green Lantern!
