When We First Met – Debuts of Superhero Team Headquarters!

Every week we spotlight the various characters, phrases, objects or events that eventually became notable parts of comic book lore. Not major stuff like “the first appearance of Superman,” but rather, “the first time someone said, ‘Avengers Assemble!'” or “the first appearance of Batman’s giant penny” or “the first appearance of Alfred Pennyworth” or “the first time Spider-Man’s face was shown half-Spidey/half-Peter.” Stuff like that. Here is an archive of all the When We First Met features so far! Check ’em out!

Today we take a look at four notable superhero team headquarters! The Legion Clubhouse, the Justice League’s Secret Sanctuary, the Justice League satellite and the Baxter Building!

First up are two simple ones, as they debuted in the same issue as the teams they belong to.

In Adventure Comics #247, we first met the Legion of Super-Heroes as well as their awesome clubhouse…

The Baxter Building debuted in Fantastic Four #3, the same issue that the Fantastic Four’s costumes first showed up.


The building is not actually NAMED, though, until Fantastic Four #6…
