Marvel and DC anime, Why do Japanese feel like they need to create new main characters for it?

Can't they just use the already existing Japanese characters for their anime?

    I guess that its easier to create a new character than to deal with the hassle of getting legal permission to use another company's character.  

    • But it's a Marvel or DC anime, meaning Japan already has permission to use those characters to do a Marvel or DC anime.

    People get more excited at the idea of new characters rather then old ones they’ve never heard of. It’s not just anime that does it, even American comic cartoons have done it, like with Spider-Man and his amazing friends or super hero squad show. A

    nyway at least they did use Amadeus Cho in the Black Widow anime movie and they used a bunch of existing Japanese characters in the wolverine anime because he used to live there in the comics.
