It started off with Captain Marvel. It was just a case of comic companies going where the money was.

Marvel has more Supermans than DC. Rolling Eyes It's silly.

Gladiator
Centennial
Prime
Mar-Vell and Genis-Vell sort of are, too.

Image has a few:
Black Sampson
Invincible
The Immortal (which is like a Black Adam/Captain Marvel.)

Speaking of which, from DC:
Black Adam
Eradicator
Mon-El
Ultra Boy kinda.


Let us not forget Miracle Man (Marvelman).

We've had these discussions before. So many. ...Mighty Mouse. ;P

Uhhh Prime is not a marvel character He is part of a marvel imprint. He was part of the Ultraverse. He did cross-over to the marvel universe and actually he's more like captain marvel cause he's kid that transforms into an adult super-hero.

^ Yep. Malibu. Belongs to Marvel, so just went with that. Plus, Captain Marvel is like Superman, so...

Oh, Millar's Superior is one.

Yeah, the Superman archetype just sucks so much. It should totally be off limits in the superhero realm.

I disagree. Supes is the first mainstream superhero to hit it big so naturally he's become the classic superhero archetype. You can't make that off limits!

On a side note, Supes himself has been highly influenced by myth and science fiction before him. The 1930s novel Gladiator in particular is seen as his direct inspiration. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gladiator_(novel)

Haha yeah Superman has come a long way since then. What's funny is that Captain Marvel fans love to point out that he supposedly flew before Supes did. Laughing

Well, the original Superman was based on Philip Wylie's Gladiator, Doc Savage, and the German √úbermensch (the original concept painted Superman as a villain). However, the concept evolved into that of the immigrant in the US and Moses. Yet, likely indirectly, he was a natural progression of concepts like Gilgamesh, Herakles, Beowulf, Samson, etc.
Regarding so-called clones, you have Captain Marvel (Fawcett), Hyperion (Marvel), Gladiator (Marvel), Omni-Man (Image), Saint (Image), Mr. Majestic (Wildstorm), Suppaman (manga), Son Goku (manga), Supreme (Image), Prime (Malibu), A-Ko's father (manga), Samaritan (Wildstorm), Union (Wildstorm), Icon (Milestone), Sentry (Marvel), Apollo (Wildstorm), Captain Dynamo (Image), Blue Marvel (Marvel), Miracleman (UK), High (Wildstorm), Homelander (Dynamite), Astonishman (Dark Horse), Ultiman (Big Bang), Statesman (City of Heroes), Plutonian (Boom!), Superior (Marvel), Titan (Dark Horse), Alpha One (DC), Virtue (Marvel), Immortal (Image), Maximum Man (Wildstorm), Commander (Sky High), Hancock (Hancock), Mr. Incredible (Incredibles), Minuteman (Freedom Force), Solar Man (Image), Megaton Man (Kitchen Sink), Prometheus (Digital Webbing), Captain Hero (Drawn Together), Mighty Mouse, Underdog, and I'm sure many more.

They took Superman's fear of using his full power and cranked it to 11.

...He was marketed as being a Superman-like character created by Stan Lee lost to the cutting room floor when they first advertised him... I mean, I could expect an argument for Captain Marvel and his clones (Prime, Marvelman, etc), but Sentry? His whole schtick is a Superman that's afraid to use his powers.
