Marvel Comics, a cornerstone of the comic book realm, has woven an intricate tapestry of stories and characters that resonate deeply with fans worldwide. Established in 1939 as Timely Publications, it introduced its first hit characters like the Human Torch and Namor the Sub-Mariner before undergoing a rebranding in the 1960s as Marvel.
This era heralded the arrival of iconic figures such as Spider-Man, Iron Man, The X-Men, and the Avengers, masterminded largely by legends like Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, and Steve Ditko. Set against the backdrop of a shared universe where New York City often serves as a central stage, Marvel’s narratives tackle both the fantastical and the deeply human, from cosmic battles to personal struggles.
Through its ever-evolving multiverse and countless adaptations, Marvel continues to reflect societal shifts and explore the gray areas between heroism and villainy.
