Marvel Comics


Marvel Worldwide, Inc., commonly referred to as Marvel Comics and formerly Marvel Publishing, Inc. and Marvel Comics Group, is an American company that publishes comic books and related media. In 2009, The Walt Disney Company acquired Marvel Entertainment, Marvel Worldwide's parent company, for $4.24 billion.

Marvel counts among its characters such well-known properties as Spider-Man, the X-Men, Iron Man, the Hulk, Avengers, Fantastic Four, Thor and Captain America; antagonists such as Doctor Doom, the Green Goblin, Magneto, Galactus, Loki, and the Red Skull. Most of Marvel's fictional characters operate in a single reality known as the Marvel Universe, with locations that mirror real-life cities such as New York, Los Angeles and Chicago.

Jack Kirby

In 2011, a court has ruled that Marvel Comics owns the characters Jack Kirby has co-created. The characters included Iron Man and the Fantastic Four which Kirby co-created for hire with Marvel Comics.

The ruling is challenged by the heirs of Kirby. They lodged an appeal on 27 October 2012.
