Creations, Myths, and the Untold Story of Marvel Comics

Tuesday, October 09, 2012

Characters from the world of Marvel Comics.

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.

Please Ed do you want to include all those pederast priests and the superiors who covered up for them?

My superheroes - Jesus, the Father, the Holy Spirit; and those who act with them -the pope, Cardinal Dolan.

When I work on my writing from the heart, it doesn't matter to me whether I have success by society standards. It either happens or doesn't. At least I tried searching for my own truth.

I recently interviewed for a job at a major Corporation. I was asked if I had super powers what power would I have, and would I be for good or evil...My super power was that I could make people smarter and and I answered "Evil" before he could finish the question...I got the job. I hope he understood I was only kidding about the whole "evil" thing.
