About This Quiz

Superhero comic books only rose to prominence between the 1930s and 1940s, and the most popular of them were Superman, Batman, Captain America, and Wonder Woman. The two publishing companies who made an impact in the comic book world at that time were Marvel and DC. To date, many of their characters are still very popular and not only have they been adapted to television series but also to blockbuster movies which have had budgets exceeding $200 million. 

One of the first TV adaptation was in 1952 with "The Adventures of Superman" where actor George Reeves took on the role of the superhero. "Batman" (1966 - 1968) starring Adam West, "Wonder Woman" (1975 - 1979) starring Linda Carter, and "The Incredible Hulk" (1978 - 1982) starring Lou Ferrigno as the big green monster all followed suit and paved the way for the new generation of superhero TV shows that are aired today.
