What is DC Comics?
DC Comics (Detective Comics) is an American comic book publisher. In fact, it is one of the oldest and largest comic book companies. It all started in 1938 when DC Comics published the first Superman comic book (it’s actually arguable what the first DC Comics superhero was or what their first comic title was, but we won’t get into this now).
DC Comics characters – favorite to all of us
What’s more interesting than talking about the DC Comics publisher is focusing on the magical art work they have created. The publisher has invented the original DC Universe and has brought to life some of our most favorite comic book characters. Yes, we’re talking about the renown superheroes Superman (the core character of DC Comics), Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, the Green Lantern, the Flash, just to name a few. Not to forget our favorite DC Comics villains – the Joker, Lex Luthor, and the lovely Harley Quinn, among many others. These iconic characters are well known among comic fans, but they also gained global fame outside the comic book society thanks to the numerous Hollywood Box Office hit movies based on the DC Comics.
Overall, there are numerous DC Comics characters, adding up to around 10,000 in total (all with unique abilities). DC Comics gave their heroes more God-like characteristics (some characters were inspired by mythological Gods). In contrast, Marvel Comics, which is the other main comic book publisher, applied a more human approach and made their heroes more like normal people with superheroic capacities.
The DC Universe (where DC Comics characters reside) is like the real world we know, with the exception that there exist superheroes and supervillains. They possess extraordinary powers that allow them to do things that are beyond the capabilities of a regular human being. Those who have moral virtues and do good deeds that benefit the whole society are classified as heroes. Following the law of duality, where there is good inevitable evil should exist. In every title, the DC Comics superheroes face their protagonists, who usually fight for their own profit and are considered evil. With this contrast and the interesting stories behind each character, there’s no surprise DC Comics titles are so popular with every generation.
It would be impossible to name the most popular or most loved DC Comics character is. According to different rankings, the top three most recognizable DC Comics characters are Superman, Batman and the Joker.
DC Comics heroines kick ass
Ahh, this is a whole world by itself. DC Comics female superheroes (and villains, of course) are important not only because they are awesome, but because they empower girls and show them they, too, can be strong and kick ass. Fan fact: in the 1950s and 1960s the majority of comic readers (about 55%) were girls. The first recognizable female heroine created by DC Comics was Wonder Woman. She no doubt is the most powerful female in the DC Universe. In our opinion, she is the most powerful female superhero ever created. At our bookstore, you can find different DC Comics titles dedicated entirely to her.
Other well-known DC Comics superheroines include Supergirl, Batgirl, Mera, Black Canary, Stargirl, and many, many more. There are all interesting and with various abilities. And so are DC Comics female villains – our most favorite ones are Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn, and Catwoman.
