The roots of DC Comics go back to 1935, when Major Malcolm Wheeler-Nicholson founded National Allied Publications. One 1937 imprint of Wheeler-Nicholson’s was Detective Comics, whose Action Comics debuted in 1938 with a cover story about a guy in red cape named Superman. The Man of Steel was joined in the DC universe the following year by Batman, and then Superman got his own comic book in 1940. Other mainstays of DC have included Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Flash, and Justice League of America.
