Super Anniversaries [Infographic]

Super Anniversary Header

Comic book artists breathe life into new creations each and every year. Some of these new characters might start as a doodle on a napkin, or as a well-thought out addition to a long-standing comic book. It’s such a momentous occasion either way, but why do we stop there? Why do we forget their entry into this world without even so much as a nod of celebration? Well, this infographic looks to change all that by giving us an in-depth view of every major superhero “birth” since Superman first graced the pages of Action Comics back in 1938.

This extensive infographic shows the month and date that each superhero character hit the shelves of stores. It covers characters from Marvel, DC, Image, and even many other big name comic book mainstays. Unfortunately, Jughead didn’t make the list. His exploits as Captain Hero STILL weren’t enough to get him considered as a real superhero. (Sorry, Jughead. You tried.)
