Who is on this list, what this list is about and how they got on the list!

 Before Sentry...Superman
 Before Sentry...Superman
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 List 
This is the list of the greatest characters to come out between 2000 and 2009.  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

This is where I would start these series of lists.  After you check out this one go back into time and see who came before by clicking the links below.  Some may Surprise you. It is hard to see who would have the best impact in a short time but this is the best so far.  As you can see I had a little trouble finding good candidates on this one because not much time has passed.  Some of these are solid, some were suggested and others were simply put to fill the list.  As you can see I need help with this one and would be grateful to your suggestions.  Right now they are in order of year.
