Get to know your superhero on a more personal level with these interesting Marvel superhero facts
Everyone has a favorite superhero and it’s always great to see them in action, whether it’s in a movie or a comic. But how much do we know about them really? Hardcore comic fans might have a better understanding of their background and the personalities behind the masks. As for those who don’t have the time to follow the family tree of comic books and mostly just enjoy seeing their heroes beat the odds, here are some interesting Marvel superhero facts you probably didn’t know.
The Black Panther
The first black superhero to reach the pages of mainstream American comics was none other than The Black Panther. His ex-wife is the weather controlling Storm from the X-Men group. You would think they got divorced due to characteristic clashes, but the truth is their marriage was annulled. The annulment was a result of the clash between The Avengers and the X-Men. Apart from making history as the first black superhero and being married to the sexy Storm, he has a Ph.D. in physics, which he received at Oxford University. Quite impressive.
The Black Widow
Although she wasn’t the first Marvel hero to be called The Black Widow, she is definitely original. Her nice physique comes from her ballet training and she has been part of several major organizations such as the KGB, S.H.I.E.L.D, The Defenders, Thunderbolts, The Avengers, Champions and Lady Liberators. Her marriage to the Soviet test pilot, who is now known as the Red Guardian, was arranged. However, she did have a relationship with Daredevil as well. She can also speak several languages fluently.
We have been seeing a lot of Steve Rogers lately, but did you know he can run 40 yards in less than 4 seconds? You also might not know that he used to be involved with Diamondblack, a member of the Serpant Society. Out of all the Avenger members he has been the leader most of the times and he once wore a metal suit made for him by Iron Man.
He is the son of a space pirate and his eyes are in fact portals to another universe, which is also the source of his optic blast energy. Trigonometry is something that comes naturally to him and he is the father of Cable. However, Cable is much older thanks to his time-travelling adventures. He grew up in an orphanage that was managed by Mr. Sinister and he was married to Jean Grey’s clone before he married Jean.
He is definitely one of the coolest superheroes out there and he knows it. His healing capabilities were apparently derived from Wolverine and his girlfriend is the cosmic entity known as Death, very nice. Like the Black Widow, Deadpool has been part of several different groups. His sick sense of humor once led to him collecting severed body parts in order to create an evil twin of himself.
It’s always nice to find out something new about your favorite superhero isn’t it? Now that you’ve expanded your knowledge it’s time to break out the superhero in you and play our magnificent Avenger slog games. The Hulk is one of the most popular ones and he has rumbled with the best of them.
