The theme of superhero is now more prevalent than ever, and a huge part of that is down to Marvel. There are number of comics that could make it as the next Marvel TV series.
The futuristic setting of 2099 would give viewers an insight into a possible future of the MCU that would have an entirely different aesthetic to the modern-day Marvel Universe. Marvel 2099 is set mainly in Nueva York and the world is now run by a group of mega-corporations. Miguel O’Hara, the protagonist, is the Spider-Man of 2099. He works at one of these mega-corporations, Alchemax. Miguel becomes infected with the highly addictive Rapture drug and the only way he can rid himself of it is to become a guinea pig in his own experiment; an experiment that leaves him with spiderlike abilities. Once he becomes Spider-Man, he experiences difficulty at work and often comes to blows with Alchemax.
Another great Marvel comic that has great potential for a TV series. It revolves around a martial artist who uses the mystical ‘iron fist’ force to summon and control his chi. Although Iron Fist never quite made it to the loftiest of heights in the superhero universe, he does hang around with the likes of Daredevil and Luke Cage. Mr.Fist, real name Daniel Rind, is able to concentrate his body’s natural energies into his hand, hence the title “Iron Fist”. He manifests a supernatural glow around his clenched fist, so concentrated, that he is able to strike with superhuman hardness and impact, while his hand becomes insusceptible to pain and injury.
The perception of superhero has changed forever, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has become the highest-grossing film industry and several studios are trying to follow its lead. The theme has spread far and wide, inspiring all different types of media, not least online gaming. There are several online slots based on Marvel comics featured on the online casino, Royal Vegas.
What if, What If? was made into a TV series? This line of comics has been about since the early 1970s, with the aim tell alternate stories of the Marvel Universe. An example of this is: “What If Spider-Man had joined the Fantastic Four”, this offered a completely different outtake at the events in Amazing Spider-Man Issue 1 from back in 1963. What If? would certainly offer something different from existing Marvel series.
