The Whole Marvelous Super Ultra Cosmic Magical Comic Book Universe

The forge of creativity & business that Marvel Comics is the chords sounded by synchronous Stan Lee and Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko and all writers and artists and inkers and colorists who works there. It all started in the early 1960s when the Fantastic Four and Spider-man and X-men (The amazing X-Men) was formed from the imagination of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby.

X-men is a smash box office last summer. I'm sure you also remember the Hulk TV show is very successful.

The earliest X-men consisted of Jean Grey (Marvel Girl) (which later became very popular Phoenix), Professor X (Xavier), Cyclops (Scott Summers), intelligent Beast (Hank McCoy), and Iceman (Bobbie). A mutant, born with a special "super-mutant" ability.

Then came a new mutant with younger characters has the power mutants that sometimes seems to have them (the only kind of comic book stories I don't like).

Characters from X-men (Wolverine, Nightcrawler, Storm, Banshee, Kitty) evolved with the advent of creativity by John Byrne (starting in issue # 108 from X-men) and Chris Claremont (Giant Sized X-men # 1 and the amazing X-men # 94 is now worth $ 500 to the "mint" the most popular Character is the main star in the movie X-men-... There are bound to be a sequel to Wolverine to destroy the box office.

X-men comic book teaches children that prejudice is evil. People living in fear and thus try to destroy what greed that they don't understand.

Interesting that both of the latest Star Wars film and the X-men film that takes a hard look at politicians (Congress). If it is really destructive power is it possible our system truly corrupt? The senators in the movie X-men deterrent a little late.

Spider-man Marvel movies new in is about a child with regular teenage angst (bullies beat him, didn't get the babes, acne, and so is light compared to school experience today-as no one would be killed when pinned down & or attend school or deceived by the lethal drug by or infected by the killer disease) is bitten by a radioactive spider (radical things to early 1960s).

This gives Peter Parker Superhuman powers of insects – if reinforced a man could lift truck and take it 20 miles as ants do. (Don't get me started talking about Henry Pym's Giant Man who became Antman in Avengers an Marvel ((Captain America, Thor Thunder God etc))). Add to that Peter Parker was also a brilliant student who is able to create the web shooters and other great inventions. And Spider-man was born as a bi-product of bi-products known as radioactive material (the Science still doesn't know how to get rid of). (Try saying it in the Bush Administration). Everything is energy! Remember the Tesla coil.

But the Marvel was not the only place showcasing characters superpowered.

DC Comics (Time Warner), also utilized mythology and stories of biblical proportions to ride the train, energy and stimulate the generation of teenagers, children and adults from 1940 to present.

Some characters such as Superman, Atom, Batman, Flash, Green Lantern, and other JLA & even Captain Marvel DC version might have been inspired by the spiritual literature which tells of Hindu gods and goddesses and even Biblical personage who could stand in the fire etc.

Scripts & Wit

Super Heroes: originated through the human imagination and of literature, religion, and mythology.

Although the creator of comics might just make their amazing stories.

Once when I was interviewing Gerry Conway for the Journal Comics he confessed to me that he has investigated some of the comics he wrote. Conway's partner friend Roy Thomas no doubt researched Conan and Thor and other materials, while the writer & editor at Marvel. They worked together on the film Fire and Ice of the animation. (Ralph Bakshi/Frank Frazetta).

And Thomas got the property initially Conan to Marvel from Edgar Rice Burroughs in Tarzana, CA. (Tarzana--Tarzan ... get it? Yep, that too is a comic book.)

The old man knew and loved the movies and TV shows and countless series and featured other characters are colorful favorites: Buck Rogers, Flash Gordon, Commander Cody (who may have inspired the Rocketeer comics and movies).

COMIC BOOK exhurberance-Born by the sheer Universe itself through the vehicle of human Form!

Comic book industry is a metaphor for life. A cosmic drama took place. But not to put in a new bottle old wine: Many times in the past and Marvel DC have teamed up to do a profitable play special creativity. I first met Stan Lee while I was the Manager of a store in Comic Book Studio City, California in the 1970s.

Or, rather, I met him through his works
