I’ve only really been reading comics for about five years now and I admit the films, for better or worse helped guide my direction in what to read. In a universe so huge, it’s hard to figure out where to go sometimes, so here’s a list in no particular order of famous Marvel characters I haven’t read yet starting with…
1. Ghost Rider-
I loved the first movie for the spirit of vengeance, because well, how do you get more badass than a flaming skeleton on a motorcycle from hell?
2. The Punisher-
I’ve seen his movies, played the controversial game on PlayStation 2, and loved him on Daredevil season 2 but never read his comic. I enjoy a good revenge story, who better to give a bit of punishment?
3. Captain Marvell-
In the Thanos Imperative I had a little experience with the lesser known Captain, but the most recent, Carol Danvers, has become quite famous. Played by Brie Larson in the upcoming MCU film as well as being one of the leads of Civil War 2, I want to get into one of her stories soon.
4. Silver Surfer-
I’ve found myself becoming fond of the cosmic side of Marvel like Fantastic 4, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Inhumans. Surfer was my favorite part of Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer so I would love to see his exploits on the page.
This blows peoples minds but I know next to shit about comic book Thor. The old English gets me but I love the movies and the comic art is beautiful so I’ll give it a shot.
In the end I plan to try them, but if anyone has ideas which stories to start with, I’m all ears and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
