With so many comics, stories and characters it’s hard for fans to decide which story is the best. Spider-Man, Hulk, Captain America, Iron Man and Thor are just a few of the heroes you’ll encounter - and almost all of these comics have already received a movie adaptation. In 2009, Disney took over the former publisher for the amount of four billion US dollars.
The beginning of Marvel Comics
The success of Marvel Comics wasn’t predictable at the beginning. One of the first comics was Captain America, which was published during World War II. In the 1950s, however, enthusiasm for comics in general faded. In response, the first superhero comics were released in the early 1960s, including Stan Lee’s The Fantastic Four. The most famous superheroes of the MCU were penned by the comic legend and still provide first-class entertainment to this day.
The Rise of the Marvel Cinematic Universe
The Marvel Cinematic Universe, MCU for short, includes all films and series that were produced by Marvel Studios itself. The universe is divided into four phases: The first phase began in 2008 with the first Iron Man film and currently we’re in phase four, which began with the Disney+ series WandaVision. Phases five and six are scheduled to start in the next few years.
The most special thing about the MCU? All movies, superheroes and stories are connected to each other. The Avengers would not exist without Hulk, Thor & Co. With Infinity War and Endgame, we were able to see all our favorite heroes together on cinema screens.
