Clark Kent

#6 – Clark Kent

Clark KentThe character of Superman’s alter ego, Clark Kent, was patterned after Superman creators, Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. They made him timid, myopic, working class, and socially awkward, but gave him good qualities like intelligence, integrity, and industry, just like themselves. As for Clark Kent’s image, it is believed a man by the name of Walter Dennis, who was a science fiction fan and newspaperman, was the inspiration for Clark Kent. In 1930, Dennis sent Siegel a photo of himself, which may have served as the model for Clark Kent. What do you guys think?

Don’t make him angry! Stan Lee drew inspiration for the Incredible Hulk character from two famous Gothic novels: Frankenstein by Mary Shelley and The Strange Case of Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson!

Stan Lee

Stan the Man! Did you know that Stan Lee’s name is a pseudonym. His real name is Stanley Martin Lieber. He split his first name into two syllables: Stan Lee and the rest is comic book history!
