Did you Know? Marvel's First Superhero
Did you think Captain America was the first Marvel superhero? You'd be correct if it weren't for some cunning adjustments. The Human Torch — not Johnny Storm, but an android who could manipulate fire – was Marvel's first hero, initially appearing in Marvel #1 in 1939. More than 800,000 copies of the comic book were sold. Our favourite Cap wasn't born until 1941, yet he sold over a million copies.
