Happy… wait, no… there’s no explicitly “yellow” holiday, so scratch that part.

Today, we’re going with the color yellow, and… well, we’re just going to stick to that. Although it’s a fairly rare color in the world of superheroes, the color yellow is certainly present, and, as we all know, there are a lot of very important superheroes that are associated with the color yellow, either because they are yellow or wear yellow costumes. In today’s article, we are going to give you a list of the 10 best yellow superheroes, divided by those that are naturally yellow in color and those that just wear yellow costumes. Enjoy!

Our next superhero that wears yellow is Michael Jon Carter also known as Booster Gold. Michael Jon Carter was born into a very poor family in the 25th century; his father had brought his family to ruin due to gambling debts. Fortunately, Michael got the chance to go to college thanks to a scholarship he got from his football successes. His father, however, convinced him to fix a game on which he had bet but was discovered and banned from college and the possibility of becoming a professional. He found work as a caretaker in a Metropolis museum; Michael studied the history of the great heroes of the 20th century and decided to use Rip Hunter’s time machine to seek his fortune in that century, thanks to other artifacts he had stolen from the museum.
As soon as he arrived in our time, he found himself foiling an organized plot to kill the president of the United States; taking advantage of the publicity that followed, Michael invented the nickname Booster Gold and became the first superhero devoted to commercial profits. To definitively launch his image, he tried to join the greatest team of heroes, the Justice League International: they initially rejected him, not approving his ideas and his commercial stunts, but when Booster proved decisive in defeating the Gang of the Ladder Reale, he was admitted to the team.
Here he made the acquaintance of the one who will become his greatest friend: Ted Kord, aka Blue Beetle. A deep friendship was born between the two, which was based on the same (questionable) sense of humor and the same crazy ideas of making money using the name of the JLA. During the clash with the alien Doomsday (to whom Booster gives the name, frightened by his extraordinary power) his costume is destroyed; it will be Ted Kord who will provide him with another one.
Shortly before the events of Infinite Crisis, Booster Gold investigates the disappearance of his friend Ted Kord; to his enormous displeasure, he discovers that it was their old friend Maxwell Lord, who killed him.

As the protector of humanity from threats of a supernatural kind, Fate travels the most diverse corners of the world as well as various legendary and fictional mythical and mystical spheres, such as other dimensions, the afterlife, and the underworld, in order to repel threats of a magical or otherwise supernatural kind.
His opponents include the magicians Wotan, Ian Karkull, Nergal, Mr. Who, The Clock, The Octopus, and Mad Dog as well as various crazy scientists, mafia members, and other criminals. Doctor Fate’s visual trademark is the Nabu helmet, a magical helmet made of gold that is the main source of its powers. In most of the stories, Fate also wears a kind of costume, in accordance with the conventions of the American superhero genre, which consists of a blue robe and a large yellow cloak.
In this version, Nelson’s abilities as a magician are traced back to an event in his childhood: in 1920, Kent Nelson, around twelve years old, accompanied his father – the American archaeologist Sven Nelson – to archaeological excavations in the valley of Ur in the Mesopotamian desert, during which they found the tomb of exposing ancient magician Nabu. After Sven Nelson has a fatal accident, Nabu – who is still alive in his grave as an undead dead due to his magic – takes the orphaned Kent under his wing and teaches him as his student in his arts. In the following years, Nelson matured into a magician of great mastery.

In 1940 Nelson finally returned to the United States, where he took up residence in an invisible tower in Salem, Massachusetts. Given the numerous threats that humanity is facing at this point in time, Nelson and his partner Inza Cramer take up the fight against them.

The last entry on our list of superheroes who wear yellow is non-other than Wolverine. Wolverine is the superhero/mutant name of one James Howlett, a fictional superhero/antihero appearing in Marvel’s X-Men franchise. Wolverine is also known as Logan and Weapon X. Wolverine’s origin story involves a lot of blood and tragedy. He was born as James Howlett in Canada during the 1880s, as the son of John and Elizabeth Howlett; he was actually the illegitimate son of the groundskeeper Thomas Logan, which explains one of his aliases.
Although his creators weren’t sure which origin story to pick for him, the contemporary Marvel canon states that Wolverine first manifested his powers when bone claws appeared from his hands after his father had killed John Howlett as a retaliation for the latter sending him away after he had been falsely accused of rape. He used the claws to kill Thomas Logan, avenging John Howlett’s death, but now knowing that he was actually murdering his own father. He then became a soldier and mercenary, fighting in both World Wars and living a solitary life in between.
He was recruited as a member of the infamous Team X and given false memory implants. He managed to break free from the fabricated reality but was ultimately kidnapped and turned into a test subject for the Weapon X project. During this captivity, adamantium was inserted into his body, which augmented his powers and made him the famous mutant he is today. He managed to escape and regain his humanity with the help of some friends. Later on, he was recruited by Professor X as a member of the X-Men and the rest is – history.

Publisher: IDW Publishing
The rest of our list will include superheroes who are actually yellow and we’re starting with one of the Hulk versions, Yellow Hulk. As far as this version of the character is concerned, it appeared in IDW Publishing’s Marvel Action series, which is officially set on Earth-TRN843. It is an alternative version of the original, Green Hulk with most of his characteristics remaining unchanged, save for him being more primal and growling, instead of speaking. He hasn’t appeared much, really, so he’s not a major incarnation of the character but we had to list him here because he is, after all, a yellow superhero. This Hulk went through the Fear Eater process to become a brainwashed, yellow version of the original Hulk.
2. Superman Prime
Name: Superman Prime
Alias: Kal-El / Clark Kent
Publisher: DC Comics

Superman Prime (DC One Million) is actually the modern-day Superman who left Earth sometime during the late 21st century, after everyone he ever cared about had died.
He traveled the whole DC Comics universe and survived by becoming a sort of deity and an embodiment of the Sun itself. His travels lasted from the 21st century and ended somewhere around the turn of the 700th century. During his travels, he acquired tremendous skills and abilities from across the universe. When he returned, he made a covenant with his descendants and decided to give them a small fraction of his powers, as long as they served truth and justice.
After the covenant, he left and returned to his new Fortress of Solitude in the center of the Super Sun. The time he spent in the Sun increased his already great power to presumably infinite levels. His strength and a whole myriad of other skills he had acquired also rose to unknown levels since his time in the Sun.
After the destruction of Solaris, much was revealed about Superman Prime’s (DC One Million) hibernation in the Super Sun. During this time he had been waiting for Solaris to try his hand at life because, thanks to his time-traveling younger self, he had known the events beforehand.

Publisher: DC Comics
In most versions of the story, the plot of the Etrigan comics has its starting point in the legendary Middle Ages and the legend of king Arthur. Etrigan appears when Merlin uses a spell to summon him so that he could help defend the ruling seat of his king, the legendary Camelot Castle, besieged by his archenemy, the witch Morgan le Fay. When Camelot threatens to succumb despite Etrigan’s intervention, Merlin binds Etrigan with a spell to the soul of a mortal man named Jason Blood, in whose soul Etrigan is trapped from now on.
Etrigan resides most of the time, reduced to a ghostly form of existence, in Blood’s soul/spirit/head, as a kind of inner monologue partner or “inner devil” within Blood; he often mocks, insults and provokes him and tries to influence him, especially his to achieve own release. Blood, however, mostly denies the demon freedom and holds him as a prisoner. Sometimes, however, he sets the demon free by a spell, so that Etrigan can walk on Earth again, while Blood is transported as a ghostly being inside it by magic.
Etrigan’s evocation is achieved by Blood through a magical formula, which is achieved by saying the words “Change! Change, O form of man! / Release the might from fleshy mire! / Boil the blood in heart of fire! / Gone! Gone! – the form of man – / Rise, the Demon Etrigan!!“. (An alternative version of the invocation verse is “Yarva Demonicus Etrigan./ Change, change the form of man./ Free the prince forever damned./ Free the might from fleshy mire./ Boil the blood in heart of fire./ Gone, gone the form of man, / Rise the demon Etrigan! “).
