The Marvel Universe

“I am going to show you something beautiful. Everyone screaming.” -Ultron

Something beautiful can also be interpreted as the amazing Marvel universe which has been one of the most successful franchises ever. Their success started off with their amazing writers that created many of the great comic book series. Some of the movies you see today with Hugh Jackman or Robert Downey Jr. originated from comic books that were created back in 1963. One of the most famous comic book writers that made Marvel what it is today, is Stan Lee .

Timely Publications also known as, Marvel Entertainment was created in 1939. But, it wouldn’t get the name marvel until 1961 by Stan Lee’s Fantastic Four. The writers wanted to create stories about heroes to entertain people during the time around WWII. These stories of great heroes were to keep the children’s minds dreaming about them and keeping hope and faith in their Country. Marvel’s comics would sell to the public for about 10 cents a copy. Now some of the very first editions sell for thousands of dollars. Marvel brought to the world graphic novels, which fueled the imaginations of every young reader. In 2009, Marvel was bought by Disney. This improved the Marvel company and Disney’s because now they have more profit from the Disney industry and the Marvel combined. They have a library of over 8,000 characters and they hold some of the most famous heroes and villains ever known. Some of their heroes are Captain America, Thor, The Wolverine, Iron Man, Spider-Man, Hulk, Daredevil, Silver Surfer, and  Ghost Rider. And their super villains, Magneto, Doctor Doom, Thanos, Loki,  and Red Skull are the most commonly known.
