Welcome!

From a gold titanium alloy suit of armour, to a round Vibranium shield, to a super spy, to a wallcrawler, superheroes have started to build a larger fan base in our world today. Paper to the big screen, people of all ages have come to respect, care for, and idolise these characters; these symbols of hope, connecting to them in ways that people in the “real world” could not.

Marvel has been one of the leading creators and distributors of these superheroes in both comics and the film industry, bringing up topics and current events into their stories in the subtext and external media representation allowing their fans to connect and communicate to each other. There were many high points and disappointment leading up to were the company now stands, but the hard work and dedication shown by all those who work within Marvel, both comics and studio, can be seen to all fans who enjoy the works that have been released and are still to come.

 

About Marvel

The origins of Marvel comics started in 1939, by a man named Martin Goodman, a magazine publisher in New York, New York. Goodman wanted to gain as much profit from the growing population of comic books thus him creating Timely Comics. The first comic that Timely Comics released was in October 1939 with the name Marvel Comics no.1 which featured a variety of superheroes such as the Human Torch.

Some of the most well know superheroes in Marvel, such as Captain America, started appearing in the 1940s which was dubbed the “Golden Age”. This timing felling in line with World War II, leading many of the characters in the comics to fight enemies of the allies on their colourful pages to help those who were still back home keep hope. When the war came to an end, so did Timely Comics, but Goodman was not going to throw in the towel so easily.

In the 195l, Goodman turned Timely Comics into it owns distribution company, renaming it to Atlas Magazine. Its isn’t until the early 1960s, that Atlas Magazine changes its name one final time to the name that everyone in present day knows it as, Marvel Comics.
