Greatest 12 Characters of the 1960'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 12 best characters that made their debut in between 1960 and 1969. 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.
The 1960's is one of the greatest decades for unique comic characters right along with the 1930's. It was in the 1950's and 1960's that many DC Characters were revamped but the amount of Marvel Characters that came out of 1960's had a bigger impact on comics than any decade that came after. It could easily be called the Marvel Decade.
