Marvel Cinematic Universe Box Office

We may not have known at the time, but the world of entertainment changed significantly on May 2, 2008 when Iron Man hit theaters.

Comic book artists breathe life into new creations each and every year. Some of these new characters might start as a doodle on a napkin, or as a well-thought out addition to a long-standing comic book. It’s such a momentous occasion either way, but why do we stop there?
