Is there a reason behind why superheroes always have brown/black hair?

    That's how the artist drew them.

    Earlier comics, when they were still B&W, it was easier to show dark hair than light hair. When color comics came out they were able to show lighter shades.

    And today you have lots of superheroes with all different color hair that isn't black or brown.

    probably because in the golden age or beggining age of comics in the 30s/40s, brown hair is easier to print opposed to blonde, but there are plenty of charecters these days have redhair, blonde hair, green blue what ever color the artist and writer want....thank goodness for updated printers right!

    No, and they don't. There are MANY superheroes with light hair.

    Do they?  I'd argue there are a lot more redheads and blondes in comics than in regular life.  And a lot more unnatural colors as well.

    Because the majority of the population has this hair color. Also there are plenty of blond superheroes:

    The Flash


    Green Arrow



    Captain America

    Henry Pym (Ant man / Yellow Jacket / Giant Man)

    Sue Storm (Invisible Woman)

    Johnny Storm (Human Torch)


    Captain Mar-Vell

    Ms. Marvel (Carol Danvers)

    Iron Fist
