I recently used the height guides for the Prisoner X #1 cover.
Bishop is 6'6"
Honey Badger is  4'6"
Polaris is 5'7"
Dani Moonstar is 5'6"
The Beast is 5'11" (but he leans forward like an ape a lot)

Hal Jordan- six feet seems about right

Superman- I'd say 6'4ish

Batman- 6'2ish

Captain America- same

Thor- 6'6 or 6'7

BRB- maybe just a tad taller than Thor. They seem pretty comparable most times, but other times I think Bill looks taller

Herc- dead even with Thor

Hulk- usually 7-10 feet

Sasquatch- Easily the tallest character here usually. I'd say anywhere from 10-12 feet

Colossus- generally about seven even. I think I've read he's supposed to be 7'7 or so, but i'm not so sure. I remember in Infinity War he was comfortably taller than the Iron Man doppleganger (and I figure Tony in armor is 6'5 or 6ish) but noticeably shorter than the Hulk. So that's where he is in my head

Juggy- bout the same as the Hulk

Oooh, cool thread

Hal Jordan - 6'0''
Superman - 6'4''? Shorter than J'onn but taller than Wonder Woman or just about anyone else. He always looks WAY bigger than Batman, both in terms of height and breadth

Batman - 6'2''. Possibly 6'1''. Height isn't his thing, he's rarely shown towering over anyone other than Robin or the Penguin. Joker's taller than him.

Captain America - 6'2'' is about right. I can see him being slightly taller than Batman but wouldn't think he's as tall as Supes

Thor - 6'4'' in the olden days, 6'7'' now. Towers over everyone this side of She-Hulk

BRB - 6'8''-6'9''. Slightly taller than Thor ... think his head's bigger.

Herc - same as Thor but a few lbs heavier. His size was emphasised more than Thor's back in the day - Hulk would call him 'big man' and such.

Hulk - nowadays? Like 10'0''. I don't like it but the Hulk just gets bigger and bigger over the years, as other heroes become more exaggerated. That's just the way it goes. At least he hasn't got back to the Heroes Reborn Liefeld proportions, where he could hold Thor in one hand like King Kong.

Sasquatch - same as Hulk, I guess. I prefer him bigger, I like the idea that Hulk's not the biggest hero around but unlike Hulk, Sas has stayed pretty much ten feet tall since his debut.

Colossus - maybe 7'0''? A head higher than other superheroes but smaller than Hulk or Juggernaut. Again, I quite like the idea of Colossus being taller but more slender than those guys but it's no longer the case. In fact, contrary to their Handbook figures (7'5'' vs 6'10''), Colossus has never been drawn as tall as Cain in the comics.

Juggy - 10'0''. As big as the Hulk. At least one artist drew Cain bigger than the Hulk and IIRC he was said to be bigger than the Hulk by some prison guards in one appearance. He dwarfed the Hulk in the old Marvel vs Capcom game too.

Oh and classic She-Hulk's usually drawn at least 3 or 4 inches taller than Thor or Herc. In the early days, Byrne and others tended to stick pretty close to her Handbook height of 6'7'', at least compared with those gods, but she's usually drawn much taller than them now. I remember Buscema had Thor coming up to about Shulkie's chin when they went nose to nose.

Wonder Woman's probably 6'2'' or 6'3''. When they made 'JLA: Crisis On Two Earths', the animators made a point to draw Diana taller than any other Leaguer apart from J'onn and Supes, and I think that's carried over to the comics

Similarly, in the old 'Defenders' book, Valkyrie was shown absolutely towering over the likes of Namor and Hyperion.

Don’t quite understand why people don’t want a large Hulk.

It adds to the "Marvel (Drum-Crash) of his strength. It isn't intangible to imagine a 7' foot tall humanoid. But the miraculous part comes when said humanoid is doing impossible things for something that size.

When I think “Hulk” even just the word hulk, I think massive.

Having a slew of NBA types be larger than him doesn’t sit well for me for the Banner transformation. It should be something inhuman, at least 8’ imo

I’m going to splash this with what I think they should be as well

Hal Jordan-6’0-6’1

Superman-6’4

Batman-6’3

Captain America-6’3-6’4

Thor-6’7-6’8
Seems like Aaron’s Thor has been drawn shorter than usual. I don’t get a big guy vibe from him. In one of the series a regular Viking female was taller than him.

BRB-7’

Herc-6’6-6’7. Nordic people are taller than Greeks

Hulk-8’-9’

Sasquatch-11’-12’

Colossus-8’ and change

juggu-9-10’

Well Thor was younger back with Erika.

But yeah, Thor seems to be more Hemmsworthian is size these days. Which ya know is a big actor, but Thor is more a Tyler Mane sized guy in my mind.
