The Marvel Universe has a number of inventors who dabble in fantastically fictional innovations. In honor of National Inventor’s Day, we’re going to take a look at the top six ingenious inventors of the Marvel Universe!
Yesterday fans saw the release of Marvel Comics’ Captain America: The End by writer/artist Erik Larsen and colorist Dono Sanches-Almara. At the conclusion of the issue readers found a credits page that read “Captain America Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby.” Hmm, that doesn’t sound right. Captain America was created by comicbook legends Joe Simon and Jack Kirby in Captain America Comics #1 way back in 1941.
Stan Lee helped bring major African American heroes to the forefront of comics with the Black Panther, co-created with Jack Kirby, on the pages of Fantastic Four #52 in 1966, and then with the Falcon, co-created with Gene Colan, in Captain America #117 three years later.
Marvel and Hulu jointly revealed the famous faces who would be providing their voices for the series about a guy with a really big head and his dysfunctional family. Famously a fan of comicbooks, comedian Patton Oswalt will play M.O.D.O.K. the Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing.
Marvel unveiled a number of upcoming issues that tie-in to their big Fantastic Four and Avengers comicbook crossover series titled Empyre. Starting in Fantastic Four #21, both Wolverine and Spider-Man will get new matching FF costumes and officially become part of Marvel’s first family!
