The origin of creep dislocations in Ni-base, single-crystal superalloys at intermediate stress and temperature regimes is revisited. High angular resolution Electron backscatter diffraction (HR-EBSD), electron channeling contrast imaging (ECCI), and discrete dislocation dynamics modeling (DDD) were employed in this study. We found that grown-in, low-angle boundaries are only a minor source of creep dislocations. They only account for those creep dislocations that are in their close vicinity−not farther that 10 μm. Major sources of creep dislocations are isolated, individual dislocations in the uncrept material. They are homogenously spread in small quantities (10<SUP>11</SUP> m/m<SUP>3</SUP>) far from subgrain boundaries before creep begins and are activated after activation of dislocations in subgrain boundaries. Once activated, they emit avalanches of creep dislocation into boundary-free regions and increase the dislocation density by two orders of magnitude.
