This Question can only be answered about what is a super her. Super Heros can be simple human ( Fire fighters,Police men). They can be religious and historic figures. People who have unique talents. Or as the comic book superhero. Ths first comic book super hero ( ordinary Person was some magician) But when it comes to superheros. DC was the company. Superman, the original superhero, was created in 1938 by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. His first appearance was in Action Comics #1. With Marvel it was Carl Burgos' android superhero, the Human Torch in Marvel Comics #1 (Oct. 1939).
