The average non-comic book reader fell in love with Marvel Comics in the late 70s and early 80s via Mego action figures, Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends, and The Incredible Hulk live action TV series with Lou Ferigno playing the green skinned and fuzzy haired monster. That love grew as the 90s brought us the excellent X-Men cartoon and the decent enough Spider-Man cartoon, although there was a bit of a lull after that. 20th Century Fox kicked off the current Superhero boom in 2000 with the X-Men movie, and Marvel Studios launched into the stratosphere with the 2008 Iron Man movie changing Iron Man from a B-list hero into the heart of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Marvel Studios can seemingly do no wrong, and we are here to serve both fans of the movies, comic books, and cartoons with their favorite Marvel Comics Shirts.
Marvel comics started copywriting certain words that related to their genre. Marvel owned the rights to the word “zombie” from 1975-1996. They also own the word “superhero” to this day, and filed a lawsuit in 2013 to show they were serious about it.
