Quote:Checking your list again, if you're going to count Jack Knight/Starman, a new character inheriting an old legacy, you should probably count the ones I listed above.
Quote:OK. But regarding Jack Knight, I have to say, he was a radical departure from the original Star Man. He wasn't just some new guy who put on the costume and took the name. His series was a truly original creation.
Actually, he was probably the first Starman to have his own title anyway. No, wait ... Will Payton. Just checked, only 45 issues. Close but no cigar.
Quote:Wait ... did we both forget about The Punisher? Oh, wait ... he's not a "super."
Quote:Frank was created in 1974.
I did not know that. I thought he was an '80s baby for sure.
Quote:When we finalize the list, we should come up with a better word or phrase than "superbeing" - although, at the moment, I'm not sure what word or phrase we would use. Maybe "amazing adventurer"?
Quote:Which triggered me to check another character and - Tomb Raider is in! Her comic started in 1999 and ran for exactly 50 issues!
I had no idea.
I found another contender, but you may not count them since they are a group (but not a group with a rotating membership like the JLA or Avengers). How about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? Their first series from Mirage ran 63 issues.
