Good guys, bad guys, and enforcers of the American way. No, we’re not talking about politics. We’re talking about comic book heroes! And specifically those from the multi-billion dollar powerhouse, Marvel Comics.
They include Captain America, who was first introduced to the masses by the Marvel Comics predecessor, Timely Publications, in 1941, and go back even further to a man born in Brooklyn to immigrant parents in 1908.
The history of Marvel and its heroes is laid bare in the new book "Marvel Comics: The Untold Story." Sean Howe is the author.
