How is Attack on Titan a superhero series? Itís more of a survival story than saving the day and stuff.

Epic Of Gilgamesh? I have to question it being listed as an example. Pretty sure Nyctalope was the first literary superhero. Gilgamesh was only in the ancient Greek sense that he was strong enough to do whatever he wanted...well actually he wasn't be he seemed that way for a long while till the gods decided to humble him.

I think the comic page should be organized into Marvel, DC, and other

I really don't think Heracles and Achilles should be listed on this page at all. "Superhero" refers to a genre that just didn't exist in ancient Greek poetry. Being a hero with superhuman powers really should not be enough to get mentioned on this page, when the context is entirely different.

Recommend changing the trope image. The idea is good but the art in that image is really, really ugly and does not in any way evoke superhero powers. There are other images that include both Marvel and DC characters that are just plain better-looking pictures than the current eyesore.

Huh...all this time, I never noticed Captain America in the page image. And I'm the one who put it there!

What is the picture of? He seems to be the only non DC character there.

edit:Oh wait, there's Vision and Moon Dragon too.
