Marvel Comics is the new talk of the town. While you know the Avengers by heart, it is time to meet the next big things of the Marvel comic book universe.

An Inhuman who can make anything he reads turn real is a dangerous liability. His people were so afraid of him they took away his vision. But Reader could still read braille so his powers never stopped working. He is Marvel’s very own John Wick.

Muse just might be deranged enough to give DC’s the Batman Who Laughs a run for his money. The villain had kept his existence a secret from everyone. It was only after his painting – made from the blood of a 100 missing people came to limelight that the other Marvel heroes knew he existed. His sensory powers are stronger than Daredevil‘s. His acts are what pushed humanity for a new anti-vigilantism law.
The League Of Realms
The League of Realms consisted of champions from all Nine Realms who united in their mission to hunt down Malekith the Accursed. It was formerly led by Jane Foster Thor. Now mandated by the Congress of Worlds, it is led by Thor Odinson.
The Thor franchise has been thriving within the MCU. We may soon see Sera make her mark. Sera is connected to Asgardian mythology. She was a member of the Angels of Heven who was later banished. She kidnapped Angela, Odin’s daughter and Thor and Loki’s sister, and raised her as her own. Thor: Love & Thunder may end up being the debut movie for Sera in some form. She is the first Trans woman in Marvel Comics.
Marvel Studios has realized the potential of appropriate cultural representation. The MCU is no longer just a White Man’s world now.

Black Panther 2 may introduce them in the movie.
