Originated in 1939, Marvel is the biggest comic book and entertainment industry brand in the world. Its main competitor is DC Comics.
Marvel was initially founded as Timely Comics until 1950. Then it became Atlas Comics until 1957, where it was known as Marvel Comics and the Marvel branding began. Since then, the Marvel logo has changed a bunch of times but the brand has remained the same.
As Marvel Studios have come to dominate the superhero movie entertainment industry, it’s partially responsible for the tremendous growth of comic conventions.
