Did the Chinese Invent the Superhero Team?

Did the Chinese Invent the Superhero Team?

Long before the invention of comic books, there was a band of seven Chinese brothers, each with their own magical or supernatural powers. Another mark of Asian influence in the Western world. DC Comic retold the Chinese legend and called the brothers “The Great Ten”. Seven? Ten? (Just continue reading and you'll figure out the math.)
The Great Ten made several appearances in DC's "New 52" series and even spawned their own nine-part series in 2009. ...
* This is hardly DC Comics' only push for Chinese heroes. They recently introduced a Chinese Superman, with a Chinese Batman and Wonder Woman on the way. Not to be outdone, rival Marvel Comics also rolled out a Korean Hulk.
