Screenrant has put together a video highlighting Superheroes who were actually real people (or rather based on real-life characters).
Superman, Batman, Iron Man, The Joker, Wonder Woman, Constantine, Flash, Captain America and more make the top 11 list.
When it comes to the fantastic, weird and wonderful world of comic book characters, it’s easy to think that they’re all entirely fictitious and created solely from the imaginations of talented writers. In some cases, that may well be true, but there are also some very real inspirations behind a lot of them.
Obviously, there’s nobody in the real world who can lift a building, travel around the world in ten seconds or take a bullet to the eye without suffering a horrific injury, but the personalities, appearances, and lifestyles of many comic book characters are very much based on people who have really existed.
This notion applies to superheroes, super villains and indeed supporting characters and we’ll look at some examples of all those in this video. Here are 10 comic book characters you didn’t know are based on real people.
