Comics: Smash That Stereotype

Not the first Native American superhero, but arguably the most prominent (albeit still pretty stereotypical). Created by Hanna-Barbera in the early 1970s and part of the Super Friends cartoon franchise, Apache Chief had the ability to grow extremely large or shrink on a whim. Other Native superheroes that debuted in this era include Warpath (X-Force), Red Wolf (Avengers), and Danielle Moonstar (X-Men).
