The Ultimate Guide to Marvel Gifts

Written by

Marvel superheroes have some truly incredible abilities. Whether they are super strong or super fast, have telekinesis or a hammer, they have all made the world a better place with their special abilities. However, we consider one power to be vastly underrated, and you don't even have to live in the Marvel Universe to see it. We're talking about the power of super gift giving! Moms and dads, cool aunts and uncles, and best friends everywhere have been using their gift-giving powers to make their loved ones incredibly happy. Gift giving is a power that does not come to all naturally, but with the help of our ultimate guide to Marvel gifts, we are confident that you can become a super gift-giver, too.

If you're interested in learning more about Marvel superheroes, we've also included some Marvel Q&As! We believe that knowing some trivia about the gifts you're giving can only be helpful. These Marvel FAQs might provide insight into your gifts, help you write a gift card, or pass along a fact with the gift!

Marvel FAQ

Who was the first superhero in Marvel Comics?

Marvel Comics was initially named Timely comics. The first comic in 1939 included The Human Torch, Angel and Namor the Sub-Mariner. The Human Torch is generally credited as the first Marvel character because of the order he appeared in the comic.

Who are the original Avengers?

The first Avengers comic book was published in 1963. It included Thor, Iron-Man, the Wasp, Ant-Man and Hulk as the original members. This differs from the original MCU Avengers team in 2012, which consisted of Captain America, Iron-Man, Hulk, Black Widow, Hawkeye and Thor.

Who are the Dark Avengers?

The Dark Avengers was a comic book series from 2009-2013 about a team of supervillains, most of which are disguised as well-known superheroes. Founding members include Norman Osborn, Ares, Noh-Varr, Mac Gargan, Lester, Karla Sofen, Akihiro and Robert Reynolds.

What is the strongest metal in the Marvel universe?

The Marvel universe is full of unique metals and materials. So far, proto-adamantium appears to be the strongest metal. It outranks both adamantium and vibranium, two other famous Marvel metals. That's not to say that a stronger new material won't get invented!

Who is the richest Marvel character?

The richest character in the Marvel universe is Black Panther. Not only is he a king of an entire nation, but his lands contain the only known deposit of vibranium, one of the strongest and most sought-after metals. There is an argument for Thor, but you can't put a net worth on items from the realm of the gods.
