Well, over the years, it has become an established fact that ‘imitation’ is the most popular and sincere way to express your admiration for someone and is also a form of flattery. Now, let us apply this concept into the comic book world. Almost all the authors of comics and the artists take a bunch of inspiration from others in the same field.

Most of them have picked the best element of the heroes and villains from other universes that inspire them and then they make their own little changes and create their characters. Well, even in imitation you can get original. For example, Deathstroke and Deadpool are so similar. These characters wield swords are known to be the universe’s greatest masked mercenaries. Not many people talk about the facts that Deadpool was inspired from Deathstroke.

Well Marvel and DC have both copied a lot of each other’s characters and not many of us have noticed it. Here, we give you a list of these 20 characters:
