Superheroes and villains. Epic battles on Earth and Space. Superpowers, super suits, and so much more, all under the same name, Marvel Comics.

 

Although the first Marvel comic came out back in 1939, the Marvel fandom still stands. With all their interesting and creative characters, and their captivating stories, from Iron Man to Spiderman, from the X-Men to the Guardians of the Galaxy, the Avengers and Thor, and many more characters,  Marvel movies and comics sure are popular nowadays.

 

The most recent Marvel movie to come out was Black Panther. Black Panther is a $1 billion hit! It is the fifth Marvel movie to hit this mark after, The Avengers, The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America: Civil War, and Iron Man 3.  It made over $1 billion at the global box office and it was also the first film of 2018 to hit 1 billion worldwide! While only being out for a few days in China, it made 66.5 million dollars.
