I was surfing some comic encyclopedias and I came across this. Apparently, the seven most historically important comic characters are Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, Spider-Man, Captain America, Captain Marvel, and Plastic Man (huh?).

Do you agree with this list? Who would you put on yours?

Historically I would have to add Luke Cage and Black Panther.

#3 Posted by Eternal Chaos (22990 posts) - - Show Bio

I wouldn't put Plastic Man or Captain Marvel. I'd switch them up with Hulk and Mr. Fantastic.

I think if I could squish the FF into one person then they would belong on that list, also someone of color. (who was the first?)

I think Phantom was actually the first super-hero, then came Supes. I wonder why Phantom isn't as popular.

@EC: thanks.

I agree. I don't see why those two are on the list. In their place I would put the Punisher because I believe he is the first character who made writers comfortable creating characters who killed without regret. I could be wrong, but I think that he was the first. You can see the difference in comics when comparing them before Punisher, and after his creation. You can see his influence on many characters created after him. Second, would definitely be the Phantom. I think he predates Batman as the first hero to wear the spandex/boots/mask look. He's arguably THE MOST influential character after Superman. If Batman came before him then I'm wrong.

Misty Knight (first black female Marvel)

Storm (first Kenyan/American in Marvel. But technically she's African. First display of an extremely powerful black woman.)

Black Panther was the first individual of African decent to ever be put in comics. Marvel brought him, Marvel was the first comicbook company to put alot of things.

@POHO: I think Spider-Man is the most influential character in comics because he technically, after his creation, that's when comic book characters started having personalities although the FF was the first team with a personality. Spidey broke down the barrier entirely imo, while the FF just hit on it.

I "first" often is not the most popular, when you think about it, anywhere in life. I think it was a just an oversight that Phantom was not listed.

I think all of the characters listed apart from Spider-Man retained their popularity (if not their comic book status) through the dark days of the 1950's Macarthyism witch hunt. Spidey - as someone else has pointed out - gave characterisation to Super-heroes in a majorly new way. He was probably the first hero who didn't win every battle he fought outright, too. When you think about it, Mr Fantastic's powers are only an extension of Plastic Man's (plus Reed has a top brain of course).

"Retaining popularity" is different than being "historically significant". That is why I don't think Plastic man should be on that list.

Superman influenced color schemes, that's about it along with a few ideologies and pasts. Batman... honestly, I don't think Batman influenced anybody because there are no real heroes like Batman in the Marvel Universe while all the Robins and Nightwing are basically his "clones". Marvel influenced the industry itself by personalities and continuities.

No - certainly throughout the Silver Age DC heroes had a "non-killing" code which was often specifically referred to. Also, although not specifically pointed out, this appeared to be implicitly the case with Marvel heroes, too.

I don't know how many heroes think it is okay to kill nowadays. Batman and Superman were incandescent with rage when Wonder Woman killed Maxwell Lord - even though she was only acting to save Batman's life. I think most heroes would only kill as a very last resort.

True, but there's the Authority, Wolverine, Warpath, Savage Dragon, Ultimate Avengers, Cable, Deadpool, Winter Soldier, and others who don't always wait for the last resort. I think Punisher introduced the new attitude that "killing isn't only for bad guys". I remember when characters never killed, even as a last resort.

Hmm... I believe Spider-Man should be part of the significant 7 but not because he broke down the barrier of personality, FF did that, and they were popular enough in their own right to tear it down, Spider-Man may have helped (a lot), but I don't think that's what he'll go down for. Spider-Man is famous for other things like having characters that stayed dead and being the first teenage super-hero that wasn't a sidekick, not to mention the sheer popularity of the guy, I think he will go down as the first character that was successful in connecting to his readers because of his every-man personality, or at least the most successful. I believe there's a small difference between what FF did and what Spidey did, but its there.

#36 Posted by Nighthunter (28582 posts) - - Show Bio

if I made the list I would have put

Superman-Come on, who knows who is the phantom? you say superman and everyone knows who you are talking about. Phantom may have been the first but Superman was the one that defined the word "superhero". That without counting that almost (if not all) comic company has Superman clones

Batman-The opposite of Superman, yet he influenced as much as him. Everyone knows Batman and come on, even if it was one time when we were kids we all thought that it would be cool to be him. First, the coolest but not the last human character, without him a lot of characters wouldn't be there.

Robin-The first sidekick, without him many people wouldn't have read comics. Thanks to him companies create sidekicks that become great supporting cast members (sometimes) and that atract young readers to read comics, letting the comic business continue.

Spider-man-Love him or hate him (like me) he has been a great influence in comics.

Punisher-If he was the first anti-hero then it's thanks to him that we have so many "grey" characters

Wonderwoman-The first superheroine, without her we would still think that the superheroes are gay :P

Black Panther-The first black superhero

Debatable. "
how ?"
Well, he's without a doubt, the first African superhero. But I don't know if he's the most popular. Storm appears to be rather up there. Even Joe Quesada said somethin about her. "
thats true,but he was the first and thats a big part of comic history."
Definitely. First black, and African? He needs to be there. That can't be argued with. But I think him and Storm should be up there. She's the first **African** female with unbelievable power, and who started out as a leader. "
true and also the first major black couple in comics"
That too.
