In the comic book, he is a villain who disbelieves from a world divided into countries, and who aspires to dominate everything under his figure.

The story presents Kamala, a young woman who finds herself the owner of the power of elasticity, and who takes the man from one of her referents, is initially dedicated to fighting various criminals in New Jersey. The success of Ms. Marvel lived in combining classic aspects of superhero comic (double identity and hiding his family his powers, two influences from Spider-Man’s initial stage in the 1960s), and on the other hand, presenting an inclusive comic book, with characters escaping from the clichés of the genre.

The Guardians of the Galaxy, Holiday Special: Director James Gunn returns to the forefront of an adventure of the Guardians of the Galaxy. This short Christmas spirit that will arrive in 2022, will serve as an aperitif before the arrival of the third part of the saga. On the other hand, fans of this team also celebrate the announcement of I Am Groot, a collection of short films starring the most atypical of the members of the extravagant group.
Moon Knight: In the seventies, screenwriter Doug Moench created a sort of equivalent to Batman, but in Marvel. That’s how Moon Knight was born, a vigilante who fought crime at night. Under the hood of that mysterious antihero, was Marc Spector, a millionaire who used all his money for his personal crusade. But unlike Bruce Wayne, Spector assumes different personalities according to the nature of his mission, and his psyche is revealed to be far more fragile and temperamental than Batman’s. Moon Knight is a dark character, and who understands violence as the only valid tool. For that reason, his series probably has a very different tone from the rest of the Marvel TV proposals.
Armor Wars: In 1987, on the pages of Iron Man began a saga titled Armor Wars. In that story, Tony Stark discovered that his technology had been stolen and sold to different villains, so everyone could build their own versions of Iron Man armor. On television, that plot will come but starring War Machine (Don Cheadle).
Secret Invasion: During 2008, the editorial published an event in which it was discovered that the Skrulls (the race of extraterrestrial capable of changing its appearance, and already seen in Captain Marvel), had infiltrated the ranks of the Avengers, taking the place of several heroes and heroines. The comic book was a great success, and now serves as a premise for this series starring Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson). Throughout history, and with the help of Talos (Ben Mendelsohn), the former director of SHIELD will have to find out what is hiding behind a new Skrull invasion.
What If.: This animated fiction will present ten episodes that will imagine what would have happened if certain Marvel events had suffered some sort of variant. That way, the public will be able to find out what would happen if Agent Carter, not Steve Rogers, had received the super soldier’s serum, or if T’Challa, instead of being Black Panther, had been part of the Guardians of the galaxy.
Ironheart: This series will adapt the adventures of Riri Williams (Dominique Williams), a young tech expert who manages to build an armor superior to that made by Tony Stark.
