X-Men: Dark Phoenix came out last year but I never got a chance to watch it. To be honest I feel like a sheep because I listened to reviews and lost any anticipation for the movie. After seeing this movie I really don't see why it got such horrible ratings. It isn't that bad of a movie but it isn't that great of a movie either. Maybe people have preconceived notions of how this movie should have been.
As Hollywood grinds to a halt and the coronavirus turns itself into a Thanos-sized villain of the summer holidays, the industry's slate of superhero movies has been "snapped" from existence. While we should've been getting pumped for Black Widow and what comes next for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, COVID-19 has upturned Disney's well-laid plans.
In the last decade the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been a force more powerful than the Infinity Stones themselves. They have smashed box office records and created perhaps the most complex film franchise in history. But Marvel comic book readers have been waiting this whole time for some of the missing heroes to assemble within the MCU. The most prominent of these characters being the Fantastic Four and the X-Men. Now Disney have purchased 20th Century Fox, it has opened the doors for these characters to finally arrive and join the other heroes and villains on the big screen.

But there were many team ups that go overlooked or at the very least underrated.
We all know that I can talk about Scarlet Witch all day, everyday. I will never stop writing articles about how badass she is because people who refute me don’t actually read comic books, or know how to read at all who knows, so here is an even more in depth look at the growth of Scarlet Witch’s powers. The powers of the Scarlet Witch are often overlooked (or dismissed because she didn’t get what comic book nerds would consider overpowered until House of M), the reality is that she was always truly powerful her powers just weren’t clearly defined until closer to the 1980s.
There is no arguing that Marvel is one of the biggest comic book publishers in the world. They are a powerhouse when it comes to telling extraordinary tales of heroes and villains. These stories are full of wondrous things that are the stuff dreams are made of, and the content can range from the ridiculous to what can only be considered somewhat insane. But of all the crazy things Marvel has put into their infamous tales, nothing compares to what has happened outside of the comics. Of all the things fans should know about the publishing powerhouse, here are ten facts most don't know about Marvel Comics that are complete bonkers.
