Wolverine may be the most well-known Canadian superhero of all time, but quite a few memorable characters have come from the Great White North including the team Alpha Flight and Deadpool.
But more importantly Canada is the real world home of fictional characters who represent important firsts in the world of comic books, starting with Nelvana Of The Northern Lights.
She's Canada's first superhero and one of the first female superheroes to appear in the comics, predating Wonder Woman by a few months, and she's the first (and one of the only) Inuit superhero.
As someone who loved reading Canada's answer to The Avengers as a kid I must say superhero squads don't come much more colorful or charming than Alpha Flight.
They're one of the motliest crews who ever assembled to fight villainy, with a hairy hulk named Sasquatch, a dwarf acrobat named Puck and the first openly gay Marvel superhero Northstar, Alpha Flight kept Canada strange.
