    Default How tall are the characters?

    Recently I've developed a hobby of looking up the heights of Fictional characters, but I've run into trouble finding official heights for the DC characters. The best I've been able to do is look up actor heights.

    So I've decided to toss the question over to the board, to see if anyone else can find official sources or in-universe statements to answer this question

    Supes is usually about 6'2, Bats 6'4, Wondy about 6'.

    Though various artists have their own "interpretations" as well.

    Coincidentally, 6'2" Is the most common height for Superman actors as well as Batman actors, though the majority of those are voice actors.

    And 6'4" Is the height of the tallest actors to portray both characters too

    Batman is officially 6'2 and I think Superman was taller then him, but I had to look it up.

    In general the hight can vary from source to source, there are some were it is very consistent (Batman afaik always listed at 6'2) and some were it varies a lot (Wonder Woman for example has afail been listed as 5'8, 5'11 and 6'0).

    I most often see Bats as 6'2" yes
    Dick is officially 5'10" regardless of how often he's drawn as tallest of the Bat Boys because they like that Robin staircase, although I heard he used to be 6'0" Pre Crisis
    Midnighter is taller than Batman, 6'3" to 6'4"

    Superman is 6'3", Batman 6'2". That height for Superman is one I got from dc.fandom.com and I know is the one used in Who's Who in the DC Universe (which has heights for quite a few characters).

    Here is a list of Batfamily heights from various sources.

    As others have said, it's not uncommon for how they are drawn to have nothing in common with how their stats in official publications. But I like knowing the stats, too. I like knowing as many sources as I can, so I can pick the one I like best.

    There are only 5 heights just as there are only 5 ages (as discussed in a previous thread).

    Extremely small (ray palmer when he shrinks), unusually small (mad hatter, dr. Psycho), regular (most), unusually tall (Big Barda), extremely tall (anti monitor)

    Unless it's taken before Crisis when Dick was 6'0" Starfire at 6'6" is way too high
    Also, this looks fan made

    I have seen DC use the following:

    Superman 6'3"
    Batman 6'2"
    Wonder Woman 5'11" or 6'0"
    Power Girl 5'7"
    Supergirl 5'6"
    Black Canary 5'7"
    Hawkgirl/Woman 5'9"
    Martian Manhunter 6'0"

    Hope this helps you.
