Some of the earliest examples of Superheroes comes from DC in the 1930's. Although DC is short for Detective Comics based on the hit series which debuted Batman in issue #37 published in May 1939. However, it was Action Comics #1 published in June 1938 which brought us the first DC Superhero Superman.

In it's long, storied history, DC would bring us an entire universe of Superpower Characters and more 1st appearances than we could ever hope to keep up with. So, here are just a few to get you started.
