    I remember watching TV when I was like four or five. My first memories of comic books wasn’t until age 8 or so.

    I think the images brought me in whether they were on TV, comics (I know I couldn’t read the comics, at first) or toys.

    Actually, it was video games. I enjoyed playing Injustice with my brother and Scribblenauts Unmasked got me set for life on the characters.

    ...all the reruns of those before I could read got me started on superheroes, for sure.

    I am one of those I just cannot remember what sparked my interest. I was born in 1971 and my Mother was a school teacher/librarian so I was reading early at an early age. The earliest memory I recall about super-heroes was when I was in kindergarten I had The Bat Halloween costume (yeah nobody can tell me why I had The Bat instead of Batman). I remember watching reruns of Superman 55, Batman 66, and then Wonder Woman, Hulk, Spider-Man and Superfriends growing up, reading comic books and playing Megos at an early age.

    So comic book Super-Heroes have been intertwined into my life and it is not going away by now.
    Visit my wiki site:

    I vividle recall watching the Filmation Batman cartoon when I was two. I became very smitten with Batgirl, this was well before i could read.

    It was definitely TV for me. My earliest memories are of Looney Tunes and Superfriends. At some point early on, I realized there were also comics of those characters. Both were pretty early. The first word I learned to read was “Hulk”.

    Was the second word "smash"?
