Alongside Marvel Comics, DC Comics is one of the largest US comic publishers. It is particularly known for the comic series Batman and Superman. Other well-known characters and series are, also, Wonder Woman, Joker, The Flash, Aquaman and Green Lantern, and the Justice League. The publishing house was founded in 1934 by Malcolm Wheeler-Nicholson as National Allied Publications. Today’s name “DC Comics” is derived from one of the publisher’s first, very successful comic series, Detective Comics, which has been appearing since 1937. The publisher has been a subsidiary of Warner Bros. Discovery company Warner Bros. Entertainment since 1969. The publishing house is headquartered in New York City.
