I'm going to go out on a limb here and go with the whole in-joke Marvel made up for Robert Reynolds and say.... the Sentry?:P

Even though he was really created in the 2000s. But that's Marvel for you, telling lies like that! So I know I'm wrong. :D

Do you mean Hulk?...again, "technically" the Fantastic Four are 4 characters (they count) so they are first...if you meant single comic, in his own title hero...then I guess Hulk?

And actually that is speculative - Marvel entered the Silver Age in 1961, but DC is said to have entered it in 1956 with the Flash.

Most people would generally agree that Showcase #4 (the first Barry Allen Flash) is the first silver age comic. I think DC sometimes think of the Martian Manhunter as their first original silver age hero (Detective Comics #225, 1955 which I have seen reprinted as the first silver age hero), though he appeared as a back up story to Batman. For Marvel, as others have said, it would be the Fantastic Four. Spidey followed shortly after. During the fifties, as Atlas, they weren't doing many superhero comics and those they were doing had been created in the forties (Captain America, Namor, Human Torch).

The marvel silver age is generally accepted to have begun with FF#1. Unless you want to count Amazing Aventures in which case the first hero is Dr. Droom, later known as Dr. Druid.

While I admit that I'm no historian, I had never heard of Dr. Droom before today. I think I've only seen him as Dr. Druid in passing. Reading his wikipedia entry (I know, I know), he sounds like he's more in keeping with horror/fantasy stories of the fifties than a superhero comic. To that end, I'd say that he isn't really a silver age superhero, but a comic book character created during the silver age. He only entered superhero comics later.

Don't be Crazy, Spidey, even though I think you are correct on this thread. May I just submit my arguement: Jason Voorhees.

#44 Posted by Gottheit (3592 posts) - - Show Bio

Freddy is more Golden Age, although I can see how someone would call him Silver Age...See, Micheal Myers is the Golden Age of slashers, though technically, all slashers are the Silver Age compared to the classics like Dracula, Frankenstein's Monster, Invisible Man...so, yeah, your actually right, Spidey, Freddy is Silver Age as well. Although, the fact that your right, well, that's just...
