I wanted to share with you an infographic that my team and I created that discusses common color schemes for comic book heroes and villains. It's called 'Behind the Colors: A Closer Look at Comic Book Color Palettes' and it has a bunch of quirky facts about how certain colors can give more insight into their personalities and hero type. Another neat aspect that I think you'll like is how the infographic discusses the different color schemes for DC and Marvel and shows how they set the trend for future comics.
