Who is the face of Marvel?

Postby Captain Epic » Thu May 09, 2013 1:46 pm

From a young age I have enjoyed Marvel Comics, however I had always held the notion that Spider-Man was without a doubt the flagship character of the company. However Peter Parker within the past decade or so has had somewhat of an identity crisis. And ever since Iron Man in 2008 the character of Tony Stark has without a doubt rose in popularity. With the Avengers and Iron Man 3 holding the highest grossing domestic weekends respectively, I ask who is the poster boy for Marvel? Spider-Man is still extremely relevant in his own right with a sequel to the Amazing Spider-Man in the works. But when one thinks of Marvel Comics, do they still think of Peter Parker? In my opinion I think the flagship Marvel character is...

Well sometimes it is just a trend, but you can always count on Spider-Man being near the top.

When people think DC comics, most of the time they think of Superman even though Batman has had huge success in the past few years. I figure it's the same way with Marvel.

Between Wolverine and Spider-man for me, but Iron man has been climbing up quick.

Honestly, I'd say Marvel use Spider-Man to market moreso to the younger demographic.

The alcoholic womanizer doesn't...set too good of an example. Not does the hairy Canadian psycho with steak knives between his knuckles.

I got into Marvel mainly through the X-Men, so Cyclops has always been one of the biggest characters for me Marvel wise.

As Captain America, Tony Stark/Iron Man, and Spiderman are the usual suspects for "face of Marvel" I thought I'd throw in my personal one.
