Greatest 12 Characters of the 1890's
Who is on this list, what this list is about and how they got on the list!
This is one of a set of lists I made showing a progression of the greatest characters in a heroic style throughout time. Focusing for the most part on one decade at a time. The heroes that we know and love today were inspired by heroes before them. Some are even real people who moved into folklore. Before comics there were pulp magazines. Before that there was dime novels and before that was the penny dreadfuls. There were many others as well like Gothic novels, story papers and yes even a real novel.
This is a list of the greatest characters between the years of 1890 and 1899. These would be characters who will go on to be the biggest influences in comics either directly or indirectly. In other words these will become great inspirations to future comic characters and stories. Right now they are in order of year.
These characters are not just inspirational they are some of the greatest, classic, characters, of all times. Dracula, Dorian Gray, The Time Traveler, James Moriarty, Moreau and the Invisible Man are know by just about everyone. These are legends that are timeless.
