League of Super Hero’s
Do other countries have present day super heroes or monsters, besides the USA and Japan?

Do people growing up in other countries read our comic books? Do you have your own?

I can’t imagine prepubescent and maturity without these super heros?

Is there a Russian equivalent to atom ant, spider man, super woman, green lantern, iron man, elastic dude, torch, thing, Thor, lightning lad, aquman, Batman, Superman etc?

Is there a Chinese Terminator? A Mexican Dr. Doom? A Canadian Super girl? A British Braniac? A South African Flash.

Where is an Egyptian Tony Stark? Is there a Tarzan in Bolivia?

You hit the nail on the head with opening question. With specific reference to "present day super heroes"

Let me start of by saying no!
Not in the Marvel and DC sense of the word.
Britain Had tiger comics which turned into 2000ad. Fantastic stuff.
Thargs future shocks used to fire my imagination in youth, as did judge Anderson . wow

Most other country's have a very rich deep culture dating back to the tradition of the bards and and fire side shamanic story telling.
If you look at the latest super hero movies and their best selling root stories in paper form you will see they are tied into this deeper culture.
Thor Ragnarok for example.
Justice league drew heavily on tales of Atlantis and The Amazonian's as does the comic.

Here in Ireland we have A telling of the Táin Bó Cúailnge. The Stuff of Legends. beer
This has been the source of many movies books and comic plots and sub plots. as has Norse mythology.
All which I am sure although have not searched for proof if any is needed to see these cultures in Tolkins Lord of the rings.

A book you may find interesting is The Hero with a Thousand Faces by Joseph Campbell.

I think



I checked out The Hero with a Thousand Faces on Amazon and might down load a digital copy of it. Doesn’t look like it has picture like with the Hulk busting out of his suit when he’s enraged.

Britain has never been into the Nazi Superman thing, our superheroes always came in the form of a non-violent eccentric intellectual. Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Who.. I can't think of a superhero based on fascism any less than Doctor Who.

Superman was of course inspired by the American eugenics movement the same place Hitler found inspiration for his racial policies. But the concept of supermale has never really been a part of Britain when we do have them they come with the opposite strengths and qualities of a bully and I believe this sincerely reflects just how unEnglish fascism is.

Sure but they are based on real historical figures portrayed in epic literature...

And you're not supposed to worship them as heroes



Intellectual and non-violent but also far from perfect, they're not presented as the ideal being over and above everyone else. And Doctor Who says he's never met anybody in the universe who isn't important, it's all adding up to something decisively not fascist.

Hi Gal wave

Yeap! All of us outside US grew up with our own Superheros, there are 2 with stories particularly fascinating: Kaliman & El Chapulin Colorado, both mexican but you can find more in every LA country Súper Hijitus from Argentina and Condorito in Chile ...I was never a fan of Superheros (except from my Batman of course) much more into other sort of cartoons as Mafalda from Argentina, she is like Peanuts but (sorry for this) a 10000 times better than Charly Brown.

Like you, I grew up on tales of the Tuatha Dé Danann and the Fir Bolg.

Fionn mac Cumhaill; Cú Chulainn; Oisín; Medb, etc.

Medb was my favourite...I always thought I would grow up to be a pirate queen laugh
