It is undeniable that Marvel Studios is taking off in the film industry in a big way, even on the small screen, Marvel Comics’ iconic characters are coming to life. Unfortunately, decades of successful comics and memorable characters are bound to produce a few duds to join in with the ranks. This is partly due to the need of always having fresh content and has even been attributed to some surprising merging between franchises. Either way, these less than stellar portrayals of superhumans and extraordinary beings are best left to file away with the recycling bin in your mind.
Actually, it is easier to say that Marvel is hoping that everyone would just forget about some of these characters already. There is a significant push to give underdog superheroes and villains their own time in the spotlight with crossover films like The Avengers franchise, but even those pulling for the unpopular comics to get on the big screen, some of the available names deep in the Marvel roster should never see the light of day again. It would seem with the rare nature of some of the later listed names within the video to follow, that these superheroes and supervillains are not even going to see the light of your local comic book store again, let alone share the screen with Thor and Hulk.
In this video you will see some of Marvel’s most forgettable villians, from the slightly bulimic pseudo avenger to an overly promoted NFL player who inherits superpowers through sports memorabilia. No matter how you slice it, you are not going to readily find these comics anymore, and you are certainly not going to have them sharing a slice of the cinematic pie. What you do get, is some knowledge about the “better forgotten” series and characters that you can lord over your friends.
