    Spider-Man deserves his #1 slot! And the Black Widow should've ranked higher. Dr. Doom should've made the list, and Colonel Nick Fury should've been part of the list.

      Captain America was created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby, so what are you talking about? Stan Lee didn't start working on comics until Captain America #3.

    Interesting list, but there are problems: for instance, Iron Man in his early years was the most jingoistically ant-communist of the major Marvel characters, so readers' antipathy about the Vietnam War was obviously not a major consideration at that time. In addition, there is the suspicion that Lee semi-plagiarized DC's Doom Patrol to create the X-Men and I don't see the obvious note that Jack Kirby obviously reworked his older Challengers of the Unknown from DC Comics with Lee to create the Fantastic Four.

    Black Widow should be replaced by Doctor Doom! And the Hulk should be ranked higher!
    FYI, Stan co-created the ORIGINAL X-Men - who were nowhere near as popular as the Fantastic Four! It wasn't until roughly 1981/2 that the Uncanny X-Men overtook the FF in sales and profile! This phenomenon took about 7 years to develop!

    10. Magneto was based on DC's Dr. Polaris. Similar powers and costume.
    9. Black Widow borrowed heavily from the original femme fatale look of Catwoman, before she became more cat like.
    8. Daredevil is based on a mixture of Batman, with the obvious extension of bat sonar and Dr. Midnite, who was also blind.
    7. Thor was almost identical to Jack Kirby's original Thor he did for DC, down to the costume and hammer. The only real difference is the earlier one had red hair. Obviously bith ate based on Norse mythology, but the iconic look was all Kirby.
    6. Hulk borrowed from Solomon Grundy, as both were Grey monstrous creatures originally. They both had a supernatural feel, as Hulk initially changed at night, not when angry. Hulk even got his catchphrase from Grundy.
    4. Iron Man is a blatant Bruce Wayne clone, wearing Golden Age Metalo's armour. Almost identical background and origin.
    3. X-Men were inspired by the Doom Patrol, borrowing the premise of a group of outcasts recruited by a genius in a wheelchair, the strapline and even their villians, the Brotherhood of Evil (Mutants).
    2. Kirby based the FF on his earlier Challengers of the Unknown as he later admitted.
    1. Spider-Man is based on DC's original Tarantula and Spider Queen's web firing bracelets. The original Kirby costume was almost identical to Tarantula's, except he added a cape. Ditko made hum iconic.

      @Jacob Keyes Did I say DC didn't borrow from Marvel? Furthermore Marvel copied far more than DC did and Stan Lee was one of the very worst plagiarists out there. He gets far too much credit for creations he had less to do with than most realise. The vast majority of the well known Marvel Superheroes were based on other earlier characters. Some copies were successful, most were not. People only recall the successful ones, forgetting that Marvel have over 15,000 characters, far more than DC does.
