The Superhero Riddle

Try my superhero riddle! newarrior knows the answer. zyxwvut figured it out. No one else has got it in all this time.

You don’t have to know anything about the superheros other than what they look like. Some helpful pictures follow!

The Premise: Most mainstream superheros can be placed into one of four categories.

Category 1
Green Lantern:


Martian Manhunter:


X-Men:


Category 2
Aquaman:


Batman:


Captain America:


Spider-Man:


Category 3
(Interesting to Note: Markedly few characters seem to fit into this category. Deadman and Nite Owl are just about the only two heroes I've found.)

Deadman:


Nite Owl:


Category 4
DareDevil:

The Flash: (My favorite picture of him was taken from a group shot. Please ignore the surrounding characters.)


Robin:


Superman:


The Challenge: Figure out how all these characters are categorized!

As before, I'll take any question calling for a yes or no.

More:

*Again, special knowledge of the characters is not needed. You can solve this with images only.

*Gender is irrelevant. Please ignore the fact that almost all of the characters shown are men.

*Because a character's appearance can change, so can the character's category. I've chosen the ones above because they represent near constants.

*There are also many characters who cannot be categorized into one of the four groups. It happens that most super-villains can't, for whatever reason, though some can.

I'll give examples of changing characters and un-categorized characters upon request. If you're really curious where some other superhero falls, let me know and I'll follow up.
