Aquaman: The most dangerous superhero on the Internet

This is just plain strange: Aquaman, swift and powerful monarch of the ocean, is the most toxic superhero on the web.

Days before the launch of San Diego Comic-Con this summer, McAfee released its first-ever Most Toxic Superheroes list, with Aquaman coming in at number 1. For the first time ever, McAfee “researched which superheroes are kryptonite on the web and result in bad links, including viruses, malware, and sites laden with malicious software designed to steal passwords and personal information,” according to the company.

The percentage noted in the list below indicates chance of landing on a website that has tested positive for online threats such as spyware, adware, spam, phishing, viruses or other malware.
