"The 10 Best Comic Homages in Marvel Cartoons"​

"Marvel Comics may not have invented the superhero, but they became a dynamo of creativity in the Silver Age. The House of Ideas created their most popular characters during that age, and some of the most iconic and genre defining moments sprang out of that era.

The decades that followed produced loads of cartoons based on the characters created in the 1960’s. Spider-Man, The X-Men, The Avengers, and The Fantastic Four have waxed and waned in popularity over the years, but they have starred in numerous cartoons. No matter what kind of take each different cartoon may have, they never forget what made those characters popular in the first place. Naturally, these cartoons pay tribute to their greatest moments in the form of visual homages."

Some of these live rent free in my head, like the Fantastic Four and Avengers references. Another big one for me is the recreation of Todd McFarlane's Hulk/Wolverine cover in Hulk Vs.

Anytime I see Spider-Man buried under rubble, I expect it to turn into an homage of the classic sequence, and it was done to visual perfection in Spectacular Spider-Man.

A really personal one, there was a shot in X-Men 97, after Storm saves Jubilee and Sunspot, where Storm stands and it looks like she came right out of Art Adams art for Classic X-Men #1. That was a really cool moment for me.

Awesome editorial.

Thanks!

I didn't even think of the Hulk/Wolverine one, and I wasn't aware of the Classic X-Men #1 (although my favorite visual reference in X-Men '97 was Magneto ripping the adamantium from Wolverine, I just left it off because it felt too spoilery).

Just goes to show how many awesome images there are!

Question: What is it about animation that always keeps you coming back for more even sometimes bad movies/shows?
What was your first instance of being hyped for something.


For me it was the Phineas and Ferb episode "Act your Age"
If I could actually love, I would love everyone of you. Thank you.
This has been a wild weekend.
nickatnite.com and nick.com schedules for The Neighborhood somehow have episode synopsis but not all: Example: early Sun Jul 21 5:34am - Welcome to the Stakeout, Synopsis: "When there’s a break-in at Calvin’s business, he teams up with Dave for a stakeout to catch the culprit in the act."
