The World of the Superheros

It was in 1935 when the first superhero comic first debuted. Batman was the beginning of long run that still thrives well today. Prior to modern, and electronic times, the DC Comic run of superheros saw it’s heyday in the 1940’s. In the later 1950’s, the Justice League of America ushered in what is known as the the Silver Age of comic books.

Batman, the TV series debuted in 1966 and spawned a peak in the world of comic book superheros. This also opened up the world of superheros on Saturday morning TV.

Rival Marvel Comics got it’s jumpstart into the superheros in 1961 with its introduction of the Fantastic Four. And has since gone on to be acquired by the Walt Disney Company in 2009.

Popular Mr. Potato Head Superheros

Of course, some of my own favorites from the world of comic book superheros have to include both Superman and Batman. Add in characters like Thor and Wolverine and I’m thrilled.

Spiderman, Super-Spud

We certainly can’t leave out the famous Spiderman. Mr. Potato Head makes a wonderful Spiderman. Mashing his archenemies at every turn. Of course, not to be half-baked, this is a true Mr. Potato Head.

His parts are removable and interchangeable. Made by Hasbro, the official toy makers of the Mr. Potato Head series, these parts can be changed with any one of the other series to create some truly whacky super heros.
