It’s safe to say that some people who call themselves movie fans – or just anyone who has been curious for the past decade – knows a whole lot about Marvel. With the advent of successful monumental leaps, Marvel has taken in comic book, film and TV since 1939. There are probably things you never knew about Marvel and its superheroes.
- The Punisher. The 1995 one-shot comic book written by Garth Ennis and illustrated by Doug Braithwaite with most inking done by Michael L. Halblieb entails about The Punisher kills Marvel Universe. The punisher kills every single Marvel superhero and villain, including himself.
- Michael Jackson. He wanted to but the Marvel Comics during the late ‘90s because he wished to play Spider-Man in a movie. (https://goo.gl/yuAaiu)
- Damage Control. Did you know that in the Marvel universe, a fictional organization named Damage Control specializes in cleaning up the mess that superheroes and super villains leave behind?
- SEX? On the background art of Ethan Van Sciver’s New X-Men #118, some readers noticed the recurring word “sex” being creatively hidden in the comic art.

- Real resignation letter in comics? Dave Cockrum, a Marvel artist, officially resigned from Marvel in 1979 but strangely saw his resignation letter on Iron Man No. 127 Tony Stark’s butler, Jarvis also resigned after allegedly being abused by an angry Stark.

These are the exact words inside resignation letter. What do you think?
Anthony Stark, I am leaving because this is no longer the team-spirited “one big happy family” I once loved working for. Over the past year or so I have watched Avengers’ morale disintegrate to the point that, rather than being a team or a family, it is now a large collection of unhappy individuals simmering in their own personal stew of repressed anger, resentment and frustration. I have seen a lot of my friends silently enduring unfair, malicious or vindictive treatment.
My personal grievances are relatively slight by comparison to some, but I don’t intend to silently endure. I’ve watched the Avengers be disbanded, uprooted and shuffled around. I’ve become firmly convinced that this was done with the idea of “showing the hired help who’s Boss”.
