Who Are Marvel's Mystery Men?

There appears to be lots of cool info launching from last weekend's C2E2 (the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo), but possibly the most intriguing tidbit was Marvel's announcement of their new Pulp Era comic series, The Mystery Men.  Marvel has been playing around with pulp concepts in their Noir alterverse to verying degrees of success, but The Mystery Men is there first real foray into a genre born outta 30s pop mentality.  Marvel entered the comics world in 1940 with Timely Comics, so expect plenty of Shadowy Doc Savagey retconning.  For more info check out Newsarama's full article here.  



  1. This sounds kind of cool. I've enjoyed the Marvel Noir stuff I've read. Some of the only newer Marvel I've had any interest in at all.

  2. How did I miss this news. If Marvel sticks with it, and gives it more than 8 issues to develop and find an audience, it could really work.

  3. You missed it Dan, cuz it's not spandex and it's not getting the super hero press. Like The Twelve it will have its followers but will never bring in the big money. But hopefully it's perfect for snobs like us.
