Spider-Man Fact: In his original origin story Spider-man was going to be a television celebrity after a producer spotted him fighting Crusher Hogan in the wrestling ring.

Justice League Fact: When Gardner Fox originally came up with the idea behind the Justice League of America, he based his team on the first ever group of superheroes that came together in the same comic book, namely, the Justice Society of America. Problem was, he didn't like the word 'Society', as he felt it sounded a bit dated for the times (The 1960s). So what he decided to do was replace it with the word 'League', simply because he was a huge baseball fan and thought that word sounded more popular.
Wu-Tang Clan Fact: When they first formed their hip-hop musical group, RZA and Ol' Dirty Bastard adopted the name, the 'Wu-Tang Clan', basing it on the 1983 Gordon Liu film, 'Shaolin and Wu Tang'.

Mexican Wrestling Fact: The term 'Lucha Libre', which is used quite often to define the art of Mexican wrestling, is a Spanish expression that literally translates into the phrase, "freestyle fighting", due to the fact that this style of combat involves high-flying maneuvers, quick sequences of holds, power slams, and suplexes, like the ones you'll see in WWE.
Superman Fact: The word's Metropolis and Superman are two words which originally derive from Germanic sources. 'Metropolis' came from Fritz Lang's 1927 sci-fi film of the same name, where as 'Superman' comes from the German phrase, 'Über Mann', loosely meaning 'superior man'. And do you want to know why the two Jewish men who created Superman gave him these attributes? It's simple really. When they first created Superman in 1933, he was supposed to be a bad-guy.
League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen Fact: When Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill first came up with the concept of 'the League', initially they wanted to use Sherlock Holmes in it.

The Dukes of Hazzard Fact: Gy Waldron decided to produce The Dukes of Hazzard for two very specific reasons. Firstly, the 1975 movie about a couple of moonshine boys on the run, called 'Moonrunners', performed very well in the cinemas. And secondly, at the time country and western music was becoming quite popular, and he wanted to cash in on it.
