When you flip through a comic book, you’re looking at a medium that has existed for less than a century. Within those approximate 80 years, comic book stories and the avatars within have graduated from the scrutiny of child psychologists to multimedia empires that annually generate billions of dollars. Arguably, we’re in a golden age: the legacy characters of Marvel and DC have the support of the largest companies in the world, while any writer or artist can transform their own compelling cast into a creator-owned foundation, stewarding the most innovative intellectual properties forward (hello Saga and The Walking Dead).
Anyway… we recently came across this nifty infographic that shows the month and date that all of your favorite superhero characters hit the shelves for the first time. Everyone from the big boys like Batman, Superman and Spider-Man to lesser-celebrated heroes like Negasonic Teenage Warhead. Look below and see if you share a birthday with your favorite hero!
