What is the Origin of Superheroes?

Superhero characters have existed since 1837 in Europe. So, the superhero was not first shown by Marvel, but by The Adventures of Obadiah Oldbuck.

It was the first comic to tell about superhero characters. Rudolphe Topffer is the creator of the comic. He is from Switzerland.

Meanwhile, comic artists from America started making superhero characters in 1938. Joe Shuster and Jerry Siegel created the Superman character in the comic entitled Action Comics #1.

Since then, people started liking superhero characters. The comic also became the inspiration for the creation of other superhero characters known today.

Superman comics continued to get high sales until World War II. In the same year, 1939-1945, Captain America also appeared in comics. The superhero also became very popular at that time.

Why Do Superheroes Use Masks with White Eyes?

Why do superhero masks have white eyes? So, most superheroes use white-eyed masks to hide their true identities. The reason is, other people can recognize someone from their eyes. In addition, the use of white eyes aims to give the superhero a mysterious and intimidating impression.

Not only that, but white eyes also make superhero characters iconic characters. So, it will increase the appeal of the superhero character when shown in movies or other media.

The white-eyed mask has been made since 1936. Phantom is the first superhero to use the white-eyed mask. Lee Falk, the creator of Phantom, said that the white-eyed mask made the superhero look similar to Roman and Greek statues that had no pupils.

Finally, this inspired other superhero creators to create superhero characters with white eye masks. The reason is, the white eye color looks very cool and gives a high aesthetic value to the superhero character.

This trend continued to develop until other superhero characters appeared, such as Wolverine, Spiderman, and Batman. This explains why most superheroes at Marvel wear white eye masks.

Why Do Many People Like Superhero Characters?

There is a big question that arises with the existence of these various superhero characters, "why do we like superhero characters so much?" According to Psychology Today, all superhero movies present various psychological phenomena. That is what makes the audience feel related to the characters and stories of these superheroes.

That feeling of relationship creates feelings of liking for the superhero character. Finally, it makes us want to watch other movies with the same theme. It's no wonder that many people want to watch various movies from DC Marvel, right?

Meanwhile, Robin Rosenberg explains this phenomenon in his book, "Psychology of Superheroes, The: An Unauthorized Exploration (Psychology of Popular Culture)." Rosenberg explained that superhero stories bring people to explore and connect these fictional characters with the great things that exist in humans.

Various struggles, defeats, and victories faced by superhero characters make the audience ready to face the same problem with various hopes. "Hope is greater than anything." Those words are the iconic words from superhero characters in movies and those sentences are very iconic for the audience.

How Do Superhero Characters Apply in the Real Rorld?

Those iconic superheroes often become an inspiration for many people to create superhero-themed costumes and artworks. On Halloween, people also make superhero pumpkin stencils on their Jack O'Lanterns.

Not only that, but kids also love getting superhero Halloween treats like superhero themed Halloween lollipops. Usually, the shape and packaging of lollipops uses illustrations of famous superheroes such as Batman, Spiderman, and Captain America.

Who are the Unique Superhero Characters?

Marvel is a successful comic company with various superhero characters. All superhero characters created by Marvel have popularity throughout the country. Not only because of the interesting characters but the popularity can be achieved because of the unique stories of these superheroes.

Here are some famous superheroes from Marvel who have unique characters and stories. These superheroes are also often used as decorations for superhero parties, especially decorations for children's parties.

  • Wolverine

Wolverine is a popular mutant figure in Marvel. The superhero was created by Jon Romita Jr. and Len Wein in 1974. Initially, the creators of the characters struggled to create a superhero based on animals in the North.

However, in the end, they decided to use Wolverine as the basis for creating this superhero character. Because it is inspired by animals, Wolverine also has animal instincts. In addition, this superhero's body is also made similar to Wolverine animals such as a short body and strength when preying on enemies.

  • Captain America

Another unique superhero character is Captain America. Before joining the Avengers, he was a hero for the United States during World War II. He is a superhero with a thin body. Steve Rogers, the man who became Captain America, wanted to join the war.

However, due to his physical condition, he conducted experiments to become a superhero. The origin story relates to the struggle of American soldiers during World War II. Captain America was created to be the spirit and hope for young Americans to be able to go to war at that time.

  • Spiderman

Spiderman is the most famous Marvel superhero in the world. That's because the character has a funny character when he becomes human and cool when he becomes Spiderman.

Not only that, Spiderman also has stories and personalities that relate to young people. In the past, Spiderman's costume was yellow because it was inspired by Halloween. Marvel changed the costume to red and blue.

  • Hulk

The Hulk was introduced in The Incredible Hulk #1 comic in 1962. The creation of the Hulk was inspired by a true story seen by Jack Kirby, the creator of the Hulk. At that time, Kirby saw the mother and child trapped under the car.

However, the mother lifted the car to save her child. This inspired Kirby to tell a story about a scientist who can turn himself into a giant in dangerous conditions.
