Many superheroes and supervillains have made their debuts in the 1930s. Some DC superheroes like Spiderman and Batman started at the earliest. Then, after some years in the 1960s, heroes like Batgirl Ghost Rider began to show up in Marvel’s pages. In 1970 the comic world got a new turn; the Comic Code Authority allowed the creators to make darker anti-heroes and supernatural monsters. This made the comics more interesting for readers and was easy for creators to embrace their content and imagination qualities. As years passed, the stories became more complex and exciting and never entertained the audience. Let’s see some characters who are turning 50. 


Hammerhead The Chrome Domed Killer: Hammerhead is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books. In 1972, this character appeared in the movie as a thug mafia for the first time. This character is an enemy to Spiderman and is also known as Joseph Martello. He was shot in some incident, and doctors recovered him by replacing his upper skeleton with a steel-plated skull. However, his new strength and body allowed him to beat Spiderman initially. In Spiderman, The Spectacular Spiderman, Hammerhead appeared on television: Turn Off The Dark. This hero is already a half-century old and was well known at times.
