The Best Marvel Gifts For Kids And Teenage Superfans.

The Marvel brand began way back in 1939 when it was started by Martin Goodman and now encompasses the world known comics, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel toys and a huge range of other Marvel merchandise.

In 2009, Marvel was bought by The Walt Disney Company who also owns Pixar and Lucasfilm, the company that creates the 'Star Wars' sagas.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe films have a huge global fan base and feature the superheroes from the Marvel comics including Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Spider-Man, Hulk and Black Panther as well as many, many others.

Whilst many of the heroes feature in the own comic book series and have their own origin movies, there are comic books and films that are based on groups of Marvel characters such as the Fantastic Four, the Avengers and The Guardians of the Galaxy.
