Marvel Comics


Originally founded in 1939 by Martin Goodman as Timely Publications, Marvel Comics published its first ever comic in October 1939 featuring the Human Torch on the cover along with the first appearance of Sub-Mariner. That same year Goodman hired his wife's cousin, Stanley Lieber, better known by his pseudonym Stan Lee, as interim editor of comics. Captain America was introduced in Captain America Comics #1 in March 1941, which sold nearly one million copies. Since its inception, Marvel has grown into an entire Universe of popular characters portrayed in comics, films, television shows, video games, and theme parks.
