A Look Back at the Beginning of Marvel Comics

There is a lot to love about Marvel Comics, but what is it exactly that we just can’t get enough of? I think it’s probably the heart that goes into creating the characters. They feel like real people that we are connected to. They inspire us to be real life heroes and change the world to the best of our abilities. Marvel Comics has created more than just picture books, they have created characters that feel real and inspirational to us and I think that’s why they are so important and influential to us.

Marvel Comics began in 1939, founded by Martin Goodman. At the time, graphic novels were becoming very popular so these comic books took an upward spiral and launched Marvel Comics into a profitable and very important period in the company. Goodman knew this so he hired an editor, managing editor as well as a business manager, then moved into an office in New York City.

The first publication that came out starred the Human Torch as the superhero and Namor the Sub-Mariner as the first villain. The first real hit of Marvel Comics came in 1941 when Captain America was revealed to the world. That comic book sold over 1 million copies at the time, a huge feat for any publishing company.

The majority of popular superheroes came out during the 1960s when Stan Lee took over the creative direction of Marvel Comics. You will probably recognize some of the most popular Marvel characters that came out at about that time. These include Thor, the X-Men, Spiderman, Iron Man, the Incredible Hulk, and the Silver Surfer. After this period, Marvel tried to diversify their comics to account for a larger and more diverse audience, especially the more mature audience.

Recently, Marvel Comics have started making changes to keep up with current times. After 9/11 they focused on civil liberties,  where their characters were forced to register their secret identities with the government, much like the Patriot Act that was forced upon U.S. citizens.

Marvel Comics has gone on to create a massive and very loyal fan base. If you haven’t already checked out Marvel Comics, which is difficult because they have created some of the most popular characters, then you should definitely hop on the bandwagon because you are missing out.

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.
