"Searching for the latest 'Aquaman and free torrent download,' 'Aquaman and watch,' 'Aquaman and online,' and 'Aquaman and free trailer' yields a 18.6 percent chance of landing on a website that has tested positive for online threats, such as spyware, adware, spam, phishing, viruses and other malware."
This overall risk percentage was calculated using McAfee SiteAdvisor site rankings. Aquaman is closely followed by Mr. Fantastic (18.22 percent chance of online threats), the Hulk (17.30 percent chance of online threats), and Wonder Woman (16.77 percent chance of line threats).

2.Mr. Fantastic 18.22%
3.The Hulk 17.30%
4.Wonder Woman 16.77%
6.Iron Man 15.63%
9.Green Lantern 15.00%
12.Invisible Woman 12.40%
14.Captain America 11.77%
