You know how he is the "Big Man" in the "Spectacular Spider-Man Animated Series", right?
Oh well; he owns a nightclub, he's a bookie, he stocks money from people and framed Deadpool to a crime he did not commit. Maybe this guy really is worthy of holding the title now days in comics

By The Way: This picture is from "Deadpool: Suicide Kings 1/5" miniseries


I just could not pass this one, look at Hal's cape and stance like those of Spawn (Todd McFarlane's character)


I don't mean sidekicks, and not even started as sidekicks then became superheroes, I mean those who started as superheroes in their teens and I shall get non newer than those who I know appeared in the sixties.

1. Star Spangled Kid/Sylvester Pemberton (DC Comics): The original Star-Spangled Kid was Sylvester Pemberton, a Golden Age character. He became the Star-Spangled Kid in order to battle Nazi spies and fifth columnists during World War II. He was unique in that he was a kid superhero who operated with an adult sidekick, Stripesy a.k.a. Pat Dugan (he sort of looks like Sandman/FlintMarko/William Baker/Sylvester Mann). Both he and Dugan were superb acrobats along with having sufficient training in hand-to-hand combat. They devised a series of acrobatic maneuvers that allowed them to build upon one another's strengths, the Kid's agility and Dugan's strength. They also built the Star Rocket Racer, a bubble-topped limousine with the functions of a rocket and helicopter.

This image is for Sylvester after growing-up and becoming the superhero Starman.

2. Captain America/Steve Rogers: According to "Ed Brubaker" in "Captain America 601". He wanted to become a soldier but wasn't fit, then he underwent the transformation by the superhero serum when he was eighteen years old. Eight-Teen

3. Johnny Storm/The Human Torch: Started as a member of a team of grown ups, not just a simple sidekick (Stan Lee sure loves to have his heroes start in a young age, at least not all of them started like that) but a very important and efficient team member. He even had his solo adventures back then.

4. Spider-Man: This one is unique for being the first teenage solo superhero, not a sidekick, not a team player and didn't look for help in his fights, even when he got help offered to him he often rejects it because his fights with super villains are personal.

5. Original X-Men by Lee & Kirby: X-Men started as five teenagers in an academy being run by "Professor Charles Xavier". Leader comes first so: Cyclopse, Jean Grey(the infamous phoenix, she will soon be resurrected be sure of that, or maybe any time within the next ten years if she isn't right now) Beast, Angel & Iceman
