Marvel movies have made a huge name for themselves and the franchise and become a household name over the last decade. In fact, the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is one of the highest-grossing franchises in the world, earning over $25 billion thanks to Box Office’s success alone. Spiderman: No Way Home went on to become one of the sixth-highest grossing movies in the world.
Iron Man may have been the start of all the success that Marvel would go on to earn, but none of this fame would have been possible without the help of comic books. Marvel comic books have existed since 1939 and introduced most of our favorite superheroes such as Captain America, Spiderman, Wolverine, The Hulk, and so many more. We have rounded up some of the best comic books that you should read if you love Marvel movies.
The Infinity Gauntlet was released in 1991 as a limited series and offered readers one of the most exciting stories ever. The comic begins with Thanos having collected all the six infinity stones and sets out to win over Mistress Death, who embodies ‘death’ in physical form. Thanos eventually uses the power of his infinity gauntlet to snap away half the life in the universe, forcing Adam Warlock to lead the remaining heroes to set things right. Nebula intervenes and steals the gauntlets, allowing Adam Warlock the opportunity to reverse Thanos’ work.
When Marvel faced a slump in the sales of their comic books, they were forced to come up with a new strategy. They decided to reintroduce some of Marvel’s favorite characters under the banner ‘Ultimate Universe’ to readers. Ultimate Spiderman ran from 2000 to 2011 and followed Spiderman aka. Peter Parker, as he navigated his two separate lives.
Peter gets bitten by a radioactive spider and learns that he has developed several spider-like powers. Unsure of what to do about the change at the beginning, he decides to put his powers to good use after his partial role in the murder of his Uncle. Unbeknownst to Marvel, the series would go on to become a commercial success with fans, selling over 20 million copies. The show also received critical acclaim for its plot, character development, villains, and modernized story.
Readers need to give the comic a look, and they’ll begin to see the similarities between the comic and the 2014 movie. The comic brought back one of their most interesting characters, Bucky Barnes, who is resurrected as the Winter Soldier. This comic can be commended for giving us one of the best Marvel movies, Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
Avengers: Disassembled was met by fan backlash for a number of reasons, one of which was breaking apart the Avengers. Soon after, The New Avengers was created and brought about a bunch of popular heroes for the new group. The group began with Iron Man, Spider-Woman, Captain America, Luke Cage, and Spiderman. The series would go on to also include Wolverine, Echo, and Sentry.
The events of the Civil War causes the team to be restructured and add other members, such as Bucky Barnes, Wolverine, Iron Fist, and Doctor Strange, who have decided to go against the Superhuman Registration Act.
The four volumes were released over the period of 11 years—from 2005 to 2016. The series is well worth your time, and we recommend this issue if you want to learn more about the Avengers.
The comic book, Thor, was released in 2008 and offers a storyline following the events of Ragnarok. While the movie was released just a few years ago, the comic book has already explored these events in detail. In this comic book, Thor and his people arrive on Earth search for a new home. They explore the aftermath of the apocalyptic event and delve into the situation the Asgardians have found themselves in.
