I grew up reading Marvel comics in the USA during the 1970’s and have enjoyed staying in touch with the Earth 616 ever since. My attention did drift during the 1990’s a bit. It turns out that while I blinked, the UK enjoyed a far-too-brief era of …Read more >

For those who have been paying attention, I've been pausing my "expanded history" run by updating absent comic book summaries. As I've found that in order to cross-reference things properly, these need to be completed first so all the appropriate ap…Read more >
I know my last blog thingy was just some sort of a stupid desperate rant to get a character back. Although, I have cooled off a bit and I think Ranger just might appear in the main-stream universe, 616 or whatever it's called now. I just finished re…Read more >

Marvel Comics began life as "Timely Publications" in 1939, with comic books featuring Captain America, Namor the Sub-Mariner and the original Human Torch. Legendary comics writer Stan Lee was hired as an office assistant in 1939. Within two years, the 19-year-old Lee was promoted to editor of the Marvel Comics line, a post that he would keep until 1972.
Everything changed in 1961, when Lee and artist Jack Kirby created The Fantastic Four -- a new style of superhero comic that focused on the characters' internal drama as well as their heroic adventures. The style was a huge success, and the Lee/Kirby team went on to create the Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, the Mighty Thor, the X-Men and the Avengers. The prolific Lee worked with artist Steve Ditko to create one of Marvel's greatest success stories, Spider-Man. Stan Lee's Marvel revolution extended beyond the characters and storylines to the way in which comic books engaged the readership and built a sense of community between fans and creators.
Today, Marvel has broken the barrier of comics, attracting new fans thanks to their notorious presence in animated series, video games and movies, of which Marvel's heroes are blockbuster stars, with Spider-Man, Iron Man, Thor, the X-Men and the Avengers becoming regular features of the summer movie season.
