Nice list. Was not around then, so I don't know anything about it, but hay still.
@Liberty: I don't know but there were a lot of good character created in the 70s and I find some of these to have been slightly overrated. I'm not going to mention anything specifically so I don't start heat and I mean no disrespect to you, Lib. Just saying those two words in the same sentence is awkward.
I disagree with a lot of things here, to be honest.
@Meteorite: I honestly take no offense at all I'm not even really arguing with you that hard. I am more than open to hear a suggestion if you like. The main criteria is that they had their first appearance in the 1970's. Who would you suggest?
@Meteorite: I'm not sure how you would determined that. Nova had a self titled series that lasted 25 issues in the 1970's. That is pretty rare for most superheores. I would also mention that the point of the list was to point out the characters from a particular decade that had the most impact after they were created. Whenever someone says they don't like a list choice I have to ask who would they would have instead? What do you think?
With due respect, I'd argue that Nova only really became popular since he joined the New Warriors. And even then, he didn't really get good until Annihilation.
Great Job. Wolverine is my favorite on this list.
Must have been hard for you to leave out Rag man.
Woo, for Judge Dredd. The list looks food save for one thing I could have gone without Luke Skypooper in front of Vader or him on the list at all for that matter. He just didn't seem to be that great of a character. Little Ani on the other hand has a much larger cult like fan base and has a far reaching influence in pop culture. No need arguing against Wolverine and Punisher as they helped define the era and comics. I think Moon Knight should be ahead of Red Sonja but then again I love the Moon Knight mythology way more then anyone on this list, Judge Dredd and ROM withstanding. I enjoyed Travis Morgan but he's one of those guys you could miss. Like Shang Chi and Blade. But one question where the heck is Iron Fist or Luke Cage for that matter?
