Four Awesome Marvel Comics that Everyone Should Read

There are tons of great Marvel Comics that you should check out, but below I will list my top 4 that I think every Marvel fan should read. They’re accessible to anyone and they don’t require extensive knowledge of the Marvel Universe to enjoy them.

Marvels

This comic book is a take on the Marvel Universe through the eyes of a photographer for the Daily Bugle, a fictions magazine based in the Marvel Universe. It isn’t like anything else and the premise is pretty simple – what would it be like to live life as an ordinary citizen in the Marvel Universe. It’s a great storyline created by Kurt Busiek, which spans several decades of comic book history. Phil Sheldon, the protagonist, takes shots of some of the biggest moments in Marvel history, including the arrival of Galactus as well as the death of Gwen Stacy. It’s a great storyline for anyone and die-hard fans and just regular readers alike will enjoy it.

Inhumans 

The Inhumans was not a very popular comic at the time of it’s release, but it is a great story that deserves to be read. Alongside the artist of the comic, Jae Lee, the author, Paul Jenkins created an awesome tale that touched on subjects such as genetic diversity, adolescence, and metamorphosis. The villain in the story has to be one of the most amazing villains I’v ever come across in Marvel Comics. It’s definitely worth a read if you enjoy a good villain.

The Sentry TPB

Daredvil

 

Another awesome comic book is The Sentry TPB, who is the Marvel Universe’s equivalent of the famous DC character, Superman. There’s not much to say other than that this is one of the most awesome comic books of all time. The trials and tribulations that this character goes through teaches us some very important lessons and makes us love him even that much more. If you enjoy any of the Marvel Comics, you will definitely enjoy this one.

DareDevil
Well that’s it, those are 4 of the most awesome comics in the Marvel Universe. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!The last comic we will look at is DareDevil. Don’t be put off by the film created because it didn’t really do the comic justice. It’s a series of over a dozen paperback books created by Kevin Smith, Brian Michael Bendis, and Ed Brubaker who lead the blind attorney turned superhero, Matt Murdock, down a dark and twisting path that many comic book characters haven’t experienced before. Through all this, DareDevil evolves and creates lasting relationships with the fans that experience the trouble that he went through. Another truly awesome comic that everyone should read at least once.

An Introduction The Marvel Universe

Marvel comic books are very popular among kids, teenagers, and adults alike. One of the most famous comic book companies is Marvel, which has given the world some of the most popular and well-known superheroes. These include the X-Men, Thor, Ghost Rider, the Silver Surfer, Spider-Man, the Hulk, Captain America, and Iron Man. There are countless others, but those are the main ones that stand out and are the most popular among fans of the Marvel series.

Marvel Universe

Marvel Comics is run under the Walt Disney Company and has some of the most popular and famous characters that many people have grown up with. What’s very interesting is that most of them are very different from the others, in terms of appearance, powers, skills, likes and dislikes. There isn’t one Marvel character that is like another one, which makes it so amazing; there is literally a character for everyone and even villains at that! Whether you like the superheroes or the villains, there is someone in the Marvel Universe for you. Every character even has a different speaking style and voice, you can’t get any more unique than that!

Another amazing aspect about Marvel Comics is the universe itself! They live in a hypothetical world known as the Marvel Universe, with large cities that remind us of large American cities, such as New York, Los Angeles, or Chicago. Those settings even take part in some of the major feature films based on the Marvel Comics, such as Iron Man or The Avengers.

Marvel Comics are popular for people of all ages and they will entertain you until the cows come on. Grab yourself  a Marvel Comic book and I promise you won’t regret it!

The Best Villans in the Marvel Universe

If you want to named as some of the best villains in the Marvel Comic books you have to be pretty evil, clever, or unique and there is no shortage of villains that fit this bill. There are a few villains however that are some of the most evil characters you can imagine and most villains do not even hold a candle to them. The following villains are the ones that hold the top spot for most evil.

First off, the Green Goblin in the Spider-Man series, otherwise known as Norman Osborn. He’s definitely not the most powerful villain, but he is certainly one of the most evil. He terrorized Spider-Man again and again, even after his death. He is unpredictable, lacks a conscience, and depraved. His methods of being evil are unlike any other Marvel villains. Because of this he sits heads above the rest when it comes to villains in the Marvel Universe.

The next dastardly evil villain we have is Kingpin, otherwise known as Wilson Fisk. He is a massive man with an enormous amount of strength and quite a bit of money, which he uses to hire henchmen to make Daredevil’s life a living hell. He is one of the most ruthless villains in the Marvel Universe and he had no regards for life or for who he hurt. He felt like he was at the top of the world, at least the criminal world. If Daredevil had not taken him down he would certainly still be sitting atop his criminal empire, but for now he is regarded as one of the most ruthless villains.

Next there is Ultron, a Marvel character who terrorized the Avengers more than once. He is very intelligent and one of the greatest villains in the Marvel Universe for various reasons, but one that stands out is that he is not human. He has no heart or compassion, which makes his evil deeds just that much more despicable. His goal in life was to get rid of the Avengers and any other people who were foolish enough to stand in his way.

Finally, there is Magento who never stopped terrorizing the X-Men. No list of super-evil villains would be complete without him because what makes him so evil and deadly is his ability to control metal, including the iron that is present in our blood. Another reason why he is so deadly is the fact that he thinks he is doing the right thing and that his cause is the true cause, a truly terrible recipe for someone in power. With his abilities and drive to do what he thinks  is right there is no limit to his evilness.

There are tons and tons of other great villains in the Marvel Universe, but these are the ones that standout to me. These are the most evil characters in the Marvel Universe and each one has his reason for being so.

War of Heroes – A New Genre of Gaming

Marvel Heroes was a game released back in 2007 that took place in the Marvel Universe. It was an MMORPG and it was great because you got to play as your favorite childhood heroes in a massively multiplayer, online video game. I really enjoyed the game because it was an awesome experience, very well built, and the community of Marvel fans is absolutely fantastic.

The game comes equipped with everything that gives Marvel fans exactly what they want in a Marvel video game. First of all, it’s free which you can’t beat! It’s good for the game and the community because it will build a loyal fan base fairly quickly. Also, the number of players will be a lot higher, much higher than most paid MMORPGs. The competition may be pretty fierce too, which is why I think this will become a great game for all types of players.

Probably the coolest feature of the game, and the one I’m most excited about, is getting to play your favorite Marvel characters. From Thor to Spiderman, and even Tony Stark, you get to play your favorite characters from the Marvel Universe. I’ll probably be playing quite a few different ones just to get a feel and see who I really enjoy playing as. But right now I’m leaning towards Tony Stark (as I’m sure quite a few other people are as well), which leads me to my next point.

There may be quite a few Tony Starks running around in the game. This may be a deterrent to some people, but what I like to think is that you will be able to customize your character so you’re not exactly the same as tons of other people. To customize your character you are probably going to have to spend some serious in-game currency, but what else will you use it on. Just buy certain accessories and make your character truly yours and you will be good.

Another awesome feature of the game is that you will get to visit some awesome places in the Marvel Universe, probably places that you’ve read about in the comic books. Places like Avengers Tower and Savage Land are two places that I will most definitely be visiting. You’ll probably recognize tons of other places and little features if you’ve been following the comics quite a bit, I know I will.

All in all, I really enjoyed the game and I hope you do too. It’s a great game although it’s started to slow down from the bigger games like World of Warcraft. If you enjoy the Marvel Comic books I am 100% certain that you will enjoy Marvel Heroes.
