34 Superhero & Comics Inspirations

From Captain America to Batman & Ironman

— November 11, 2008 — Pop Culture
With nerds everywhere getting excited about the Captain America movie getting an official director, Joe Johnson, TrendHunter.com is celebrating with a cluster of comics and Superhero worship. 

Captain America is a fictional character that was created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby and first appeared in Captain America Comics #1 (March 1941). However, Captain America is not just one guy, it is a title that is applied to whomever the U.S. government chooses to wear the costume and bear the shield.

The timing of Captain America’s revival couldn’t be better. With Obama winning the presidential elections, the world is looking at America with a new eye. Plus, as you can see by the cluster below, Superhero-inspired designs and innovations are flooding every aspect of our lives, from fashion and furnitures to games and tattoos.
