We recently asked, What is your favorite superhero origin?
Share your favorite couple in the comments section below!
The best origin? The Beyonder… it doesnt have origin, it doesnt have an end…
I still think Batman’s origin story, parents gunned down on the way home from the movies, is one of the best.
Probably would have to be Isaiah Bradley.
The Flash! Struck by lightning, later proven to be himself from the future going to the past to give himself his power!
Punisher….out of tragedy and trauma.
The origin of Milk and Cheese (by Evan Dorkin): They’re from a single-parent farm. One cow, no dad.
Armstrong, Eternal Warrior, and Ivar Timewalker. Three brothers from ancient times given immortality as a way to save the youngest of them, but at a terrible cost.
