Superhero webcomics remain one of the most popular kinds of comic books in the United States. The genre gained popularity in the 1930s, peaked in the 1940s, and has been the most popular form of funny text in North America since the 1960s. Superhero comics tell stories about superheroes and the worlds in which they live. Beginning in 1938, when Superman first appeared in Action Comics #1, an anthology of adventure stories, comic books dedicated to superheroes (heroic people with extraordinary or superhuman abilities and skills, or god-like powers and attributes) exploded into a popular genre, coinciding with the start of World War II and the end of the Great Depression.
Superpowered and costumed heroes same Popeye and The Phantom, have been appearing in newspaper comic strips for some years previous to the appearance of Superman. The Clock, a masked detective, debuted in the comic book Funny Pages #6. (Nov. 1936).

Atom Age In American Comics History
After WWII, superhero comic books began to lose popularity, owing in part to the publishing of Violation of the Innocent and the investigations of the Senate Subcommittee on Juvenile Delinquency hearings. Only three superheroes had their titles by 1954: Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman, who also co-starred in World’s Finest Comics.
The Silver Age Of Comic Books:
In the 1950s, DC began reprinting science fiction-themed versions of famous 1940s superhero heroes like The Flash and Green Lantern. In the 1960s, Marvel Comics followed suit, introducing Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, the Hulk, Thor, the X-Men, and Iron Man. All of them had more nuanced personalities and dramatic potential.
The Bronze Age Of Comic Books:
In the short-lived run of Green Lantern/Green Arrow with Denny O’Neil and Neal Adams and the Captain America story arc of Steve Englehart’s political disillusionment, superhero comics became far more political and dealt with social themes. The Uncanny X-Men by Chris Claremont and John Byrne for Marvel and The New Teen Titans by Marv Wolfman and George Pérez for DC soon displaced this with more sophisticated character-driven titles. With the appearances of the Punisher, Wolverine, Ghost Rider, and Frank Miller’s resurrection of Daredevil in the 1980s, anti-hero themes became prominent.
From this lesson, it is getting an appreciation for what some people reject as kids’ stuff. In superhero webcomics, pay attention to the art in the panels and the story. Get swept up in the adventures of these larger-than-life characters. If you want children to understand that no wrongdoing goes unpunished and that even one person can make a difference. Definitely, you want kids to realize that superheroes are only as strong as the people who create them and that we all have the potential to be superheroes.
