Captain America is my favorite Marvel Superhero. I'm glad they brought him back to life. And it's nice to know someone else appreciates Aquaman and doesn't think he's useless. Plastic Man does a great job serving as the comic relief. And I just love the rest.
But you made one error. Namor did appear in Motion Picture Funnies Weekley, but he appeared in 1939, not 1940. So he debuted in the 1930s, not the 40s. As a matter of fact, he debuted in April 1939, a month before Batman, who debuted in May 1939.
Dick Grayson made this list one of the best on CV.
Great lists! Nice to see some of the Golden Age characters getting a nod.
Namor's first appearance WAS in 1939. He appeared in Motion Picture Funnies Weekly, six months before the Original Human Torch, and his story in Marvel Comics #1 is actually a reprint with 4 new pages added. Namor's a couple of months older than Batman, I believe. He's the original anti-hero and poster boy for teen alienation, as well as one of the first bi-racial super-heroes.
" Are you sure Namor the Sub-Mariner first appeared in the 40's? I though he first appeared in 1939. "
Billy was my favorite only because he was a pure hearted super-hero with a kids outlook. there was no grey. just being a good person was all that mattered.
A lot of great DC favorites on this list. Loved Green Arrow the best on the list.
no joker? :-(
I agree with everything but Tomahawk and Aquaman, and yes, where are the Marvels?, and Black Terror had a ton of appearances and like two titles. All the same sweet list! I was looking for "The Top ten covers of the 1940's " did I miss it?
