Aquaman reclaims his crown as Internet's 'Most Toxic Superhero'

Sure, he's the King of the Seven Seas, a founding member of the Justice League and, if all goes as planned, the star of his own 2018 movie. However, for the second time in three years, Aquaman is also the "Most Toxic Superhero."

That's according to Intel Security, which today released its third annual list of online superhero searches that are most likely to lead you to bad links, viruses, malware and websites containing malicious software used to steal passwords and personal information. The information is compiled using McAfee Site Advisor, which rates sites by risk level.

Aquaman first wore the toxic crown in 2013, only to be dethroned last year by Superman (the King of Atlantis slipped to No. 3, alongside Wonder Woman). Now, however, he's back on top.

As in the past, most of the superheroes on this year's list of Most Toxic Superheroes now appear, or will soon appear, in movies or television series. Interestingly the Man of Steel, who will share the screen next year in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, is nowhere to be seen (the Dark Knight, meanwhile, clings to No. 10).

Iron Fist, Doctor Strange and Catwoman enter the list for the first time, while Daredevil makes a triumphant(?) return after sitting out last year.

Here's Intel Security's Most Toxic Superheroes of 2015 (the percentages indicate the likelihood a search will lead you to a site that tested positive for online threats):

1. Aquaman                                           20.00%

2. Iron Fist                                             19.69%

4. Wonder Woman                                  19.38%

5. Doctor Strange                                   19.17%
