WWII & Global Impact
Comic books have had many effects on the world too! During WWII it caused America to create many new characters so that they can fight Hitler and cause effects all over the world especially here and in Germany while the war was happening. This also caused many effects on superheroes developed in different producers and caused competition around the world. Like during the WWII era captain America was created so that he can fight Hitler and become an important superhero in America. This was created to make America look good even before the American soldiers fought and went into the war.
Other effects would be global impact effects like world wars, terrorism, racism, etc. They show these effects through stories, superheroes and more. They are a tool to show racism because there has been many issues were comic books have shown too many racist characters in which they might talk bad about other races and not show good behavior. There are also examples were comic books show effects on the 9/11 attack or other race issues that have happened all over the world. Comic books will take advantage of the situation to create new comic books in which they will have the eventsthat happened, and they might even add superheroes fighting the terrorist, so global impacts can have effects in comic books which means that world situations that have had impacts all over the world might end up in comic books like what happened in WWII, 9/11, race issue times and many more.
