Fantastic Five: Best Legacy Heroes

five legacy

If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.

This video takes a look at the concept of the legacy hero, those who are inspired by another hero to take up their name, costume, or gimmicks, and counts down the five most successful successors.

Halloween is unquestionably the most wonderful time of the year, but how can we take our love for Halloween and our love for comics and combine them to enjoy at the same time? I'll tell you how.

16 Forgotten Image Comics Action Figure Lines

Image Comics
Image Comics

A little over twenty years ago, a group of creators left the confines of Marvel Comics for the wild world of indies. By forming Image Comics, Jim Lee, Rob Liefeld, Erik Larsen, Todd McFarlane, Marc Silvestri and Jim Valentino set a new precedent for comics.

Of course, the 1990s were a dangerous time for the industry. The speculative market imploded not long after the Image exodus, and the comic market still hasn't recovered all these years later. But we're not here to lament the days of old, when single issues sold in the millions and drawing comics was as big a deal as being in Guns 'N Roses (depending on how many pages Wizard devoted to you in a given month). No, we're here to talk about all the ridiculous action figure lines these Image Comics spawned (heh) that you probably forgot all about.
