chris evansHave you seen Captain America star Chris Evans and his hunky biceps? Swoon! But he's just the latest hunk to become a big screen action star hero (although he doesn't actually having any superhuman powers in the film). Uber hunks Christian Bale, Hugh Jackman, and Robert Downey have all set our hearts racing as we watched them saving damsels in distress. So in our the battle of the super heroes, the question is not which one would win in a fight, but rather, which one is the hottest?

Let's take a look.

Robert Downey Jr.

Robert Downey Jr., Iron Man, Iron Man (2008) There are a fair share of women who think that he's a sexpot, and sure, I can see it. He's a tad quirky for my taste. But, it's that eery strong-willed look about him that made him so good in his Iron Man role as Tony Stark. Of course -- if his looks aren't enough to sell you, then his singing voice may do just the trick.

Tobey Maguire, Spiderman, Spiderman (2002) Is it just me, or is he sort of like that surprisingly good-looking nerdy boy from your college physics class? And have you seen him with his two kids, Ruby and Otis? He's a baby-carrying natural.

Christian Bale, The Dark Knight, Batman (2008) I'm not digging his post-Fighter look after the Golden Globes, but what is definitely sexy is his take on Bruce Wayne. I don't think tight, black armor has ever looked so good. Well, besides maybe on George Clooney.

Hugh Jackman, X-Men, Wolverine (2000) Some people may argue that Wolverine isn't exactly as superhero-esque as the rest of our men, but I tend to disagree. A man who can handle claws like Jackman is a hero any day in my book. Do you see how handsome he is with his shirt off? I'm already looking forward to his next stint in The Wolverine in 2012.

Who do you think is the hottest superhero? Did your favorite make our list?
