    Default Public Domain Superheroes

    Were there any Superheroes that hit public domain, I'm talking about obscure superheroes not from Marvel & DC comics.

    A great many from the Golden Age are public domain now. Every so often someone will do a series or a special with one of them.

    I'm not 100% sure, but I think many of the characters at Dynamite (Green Lama, Black Terror, 40's Daredevil) were in the public domain for a while.

    Have you tried the google?

    There is an entire wiki online devoted to nothing but public domain superheroes:

    I found it by googling "public domain superheroes". It's the first hit.

    Yeah, pretty sure they're not paying for those licenses.

    I co-host a podcast about comics. Mostly it's X-Men comics of the 90's.

    Calico Kid is a fascinating one because he sometimes goes by the alias "Ghost Rider".
