    Taz a bit out of my depth on this mate, but I’ll give it a go when the list is up. Apart from the well known, judge Dredd is about it. You might have my top 5 if that’s ok lol :50:.

    @dalbeth3 just to clarify that some of those originated from novels or plays, such as Frankenstein (Mary Shelley), Dracula (Bram Stoker), Jekyll & Hyde (Robert Louis Stevenson), Professor Moriarty (Arthur Conan Doyle), Allan Quartermain (Rider Haggard), Captain Nemo (Jules Verne), while King Kong originated as an original film character.

    I done a quick google on it, as KIng Kong being that old i thought had to be a book first or comic, its a tricky one.

    Exactly, it is a novelization of a movie. The King Kong character was was conjured up and written into a script for a movie (which was close to release when the novelization was released). The practice is, or at least was, widespread and while I don't know if it is still a thing, but was often used as a tool to help promote upcoming movies for decades, really until the advent of the internet. Novelizations are derivitive of the films from which they are taken from, not the other way around.

    Sorry I didn't get around to doing this last night as previously promised. I will be on later and will tag people and everything then, but last night I was just absolutely spitting chips after the football that couldn't bring myself to deal with this.
