Marvelous Mythology looks at the creation of Marvel Comics’ classic superheroes: Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, the X-Men, the Avengers, Thor, Captain America, the Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, and many more.
The modern Marvel Age was launched in 1961 with the publication of Fantastic Four #1, which began the process of turning a third-rate comic book publisher into the giant of its field. One by one, in story after story, each of the other incredible characters were introduced until soon, an entire pantheon of heroes, gods, monsters, giants, and sorcerers was created.
Unlike other companies’ comics at the time, every one of Marvel’s stories connected with every other story – building, in time, a modern mythology of colorful excitement and fantasy.
Filmgoers are only now discovering this mythological world that has existed for over fifty years in the comics.
This title should appeal to a wide variety of readers, from comic book collectors to any of the millions of people who have enjoyed watching the Marvel superheroes on film.
