Behind every great man is an even greater woman.
Oops, wrong quote.
But you know what I mean. Practically every superhero or protagonist in literature, comics, movie, or TV show has a sidekick that the former can’t live without.
There’s Batman’s Robin. There’s Frodo’s Sam. (Let’s please not even entertain the thought of a bromance here.) There’s Jon Snow’s Sam. (Sams are the best!)
And the list goes on and on.
Yes, we believe that main characters won’t be who they are without their sidekicks.
The guys at Morphsuits think the same way – they have put together the most iconic sidekicks in history in one infographic.
What we love about this compilation is that it isn’t focused only on what’s popular these days. It starts from way back in the 1600s with the classic Don Quixote. Do you know his sidekick? How about Robinson Crusoe’s?
Here are easier ones…Tintin’s sidekick? Asterix’s?
Well, we won’t keep you guessing. Enjoy the infographic and some of the most iconic sidekicks in history. We won’t blame you if you get the urge to revisit old books/movies/TV shows.
Did the infographic hit the mark, or did it miss some sidekicks you think should have been included? Let us know in the comments!
