Modern mythology

You know, we sometimes think ancient people were somehow primitive and delusional to have their mythological heroes...and completely gloss over the fact that we most certainly have our own. Here's a few:

Superman - in a study a few years back he was more recognizable globally than Jesus.
Sherlock Holmes - written, rewritten, you name it. Everyone loves to play with the great detective.
Nikola Tesla - who's even a real person! The original mad scientist. And somebody else everyone loves to play with. Hero or villain? Depends on the writer.

Let's have some more?
