Chinese internet conglomerate NetEase has debuted the first two Marvel superhero comics aimed at the Chinese market. According to a report from Technode, the two comics, Warriors of Three Sovereigns by artist Gunji and Cyclone by artist Keng, were developed under the supervision of Marvel.

“The editor of Marvel Comics participated in the creation of the two heroes, so it’s fair to say they are Marvel’s first two official Chinese superheroes,” said a NetEase spokesperson, presumably referring to Marvel Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski, though they may know him by his Chinese name, 吉田明. “These characters will have various connections with the Marvel Universe, including the infrastructure of cities they live in, like Stark Industries advertisements.”

The comics, geared toward modern Chinese culture, star young protagonists. In Warriors of Three Sovereigns, a college student faces off against an ancient tyrant, while in Cyclone stars a female architect with wind-based powers.

This blog is my outlet for my interests, I value and one of my main passions is American comic books. To me fictional stories are a deep message that are an expression of the writers, illustrator’s and everyone involved in the whole process of creating a comic book. Comic book writers and illustrators such as Stan Lee and Jack Kirby who work for Marvel Comics have created amazing characters and stories such as Spider-Man, Iron-Man, Thor, Daredevil, Doctor Strange, Hulk and many more have led a legacy in all forms of entertainment and now their iconic characters that were once on paper are now in all types of media such as cartoons, television shows, anime and of course movies. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is amazing and this is just the start.  (Iron-Man) 

Also on the DC Comics side amazing Jim Lee a Korean-American comic book artist, writer, editor and publisher who has collaborated with a number of amazing people in the comic book industry to write and draw about the iconic superheroes and super villains such as: Batman, Robin, Bat Girl, Bat Wing, Superman, Supergirl, The Joker, Sinestro and Nightwing. (Nightwing is my favourite hero of all time)
