Can You Name These Marvel Comics Teams?
While solo heroes such as Spider-Man and Wolverine have each enjoyed great success, it’s always been superhero teams that have been instrumental in driving Marvel’s printed and cinematic universes. It was the launch of “The Fantastic Four” in 1961, by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, that initiated the so-called Marvel Age and laid down the foundations of the Marvel Universe, while “The Avengers” proved beyond a shadow of a doubt how much strength there was in the Marvel film franchise.
Whether their members are bound together by family ties, sharing a common cause or through an accident of birth, a seemingly endless number of teams have been featured in Marvel comics over the years. Some of them – such as the X-Men, for example – have found great success and have evolved into becoming powerhouse franchises of their own, while many others have remained hidden in semi (or even total) obscurity. Now, CBR wants to test your knowledge of Marvel Comics’ many superhero teams, in order to determine whether you’re worthy of Avengers membership or better suited to hanging out with the Great Lakes Avengers.
