    Casper Van Dien is the shortest actor to play Tarzan, at 5’10”.

    On topic though, i’ve gone by the old DC Who’s Who (and Marvel Universe Handbook) ever since I was a kid, so i’d say check those out, and you’d be GTG.

    John and Barry are also supposed to be 6'1 and 6'0 respectively.

    There is also not really one good source for the stats, most have some really wired outliers.

    The Ultimate Character Guide had for example Damian being taller then Jon Kent, even if in the comics Jon is taller.

    You can see several pages from the Ultimate Character Guide on Amazon. It lists Joker as only 6', while Wonder Woman is at 6'2". (She is an Amazon, but it seems like she'd tower over Superman in her heels.)

    I've always enjoyed reading the "official" heights and weights because they can seem so crazy. They often claim Tim Drake is really tiny -- 5'5" and 125 pounds or 5'7" and 135. Conner, on the other hand, will be listed at 5'7 and 150, even when it's the very bulky T-shirt version.

    Is this the current official listing for DC? What does it list Power Girl as? Because she's another case of the old "official" listing being different from the art, which is confusing.

    Hope this helps you.
    Yeah Ive always thought of Superman being 63, Batman 62, Wonder Woman 511. But Jonn is usually shown to be taller than the Trinity. Maybe around 66. Id say Nightwing is about 59. Grayson should be relatively smaller than the others as it works with his gymnast frame.

    Wonky heights is part of the reason why I look the heights up XD.

    To give a non-DC example, Sailor Moon is 4'11"

    True. But I disregard them sometimes. Because they are bonkers. But I use most of them. But Diana at 6'2" would be in the same percentile as a 6'8" man, and that's too tall for me. Maps is way too short in Gotham Academy (she's 14, so should be very close, if not already reaching, adult height, and is 4'6").

    But yeah, inconsistency all over the place. Usually in the 1990s, Tim was drawn a little taller than Steph. If he's 5'6" and she's 5'5" that works (though he was listed as 5'1" for part of that era, I know, but I assume it to have been a holdover from his 13-year-old self). Until she's shown the same height as her father - and Arthur's listed as 5'11" tall (she did have heels, but low ones) - I get the dramatic effect the panel was going for , though. Barbara used to be drawn to suit the 5'11" height in the mid-1970s, but has definitely been shorter other times, but her listed height has changed, too, so she's more in the clear. The hierarchical Bat-drawing has already been mentioned. Ted Kord is listed at 5'11" and was drawn in a way that seemed that height for a while, then he got short compared to others for a while. Booster's supposedly 6'5" post-COIE, but sometimes is the same height as Ted or Bruce.

    Pre-Crisis, most superheroes were 6' (including Clark and Bruce). Dick was always drawn shorter than that.
    A bat! That's it! It's an omen.. I'll shall become a bat!

    Also, this looks fan made
    She was way tall pre-Crisis when Perez drew her. The top 3 inches are probably hair.

    Booster Gold was supposed to be 6'5, but isn't drawn that way anymore. The original "Who's Who" had a lot of heights as well.
