Source: Three Marvel Comic Book Movies Lead The Worldwide Box Office For The First Time In History

Comicbook.com (wait, I don’t remember, do they like us?) is reporting that Marvel Comics has done something that has never been done before:

Marvel Comics has just pulled off one the most impressive feats in the annals of cinematic history. For the first time ever, three different movies revolving around the creations of a single comic book publishing company hold the top three positions at the worldwide box office for the year to date.

Wow…that is actually

[Jude Terror comes busting into the room]

RU: NO! Hold the fuck up! I’m not being racist, anti-woman, mean, or any of the other millions of reasons you’ve busted in here over the years to tell me “RU, you can’t say that!” Leave me be! This was going to be a straight article.

Jude: No, RU, you good. I have a question; is that really the quote from Comicbook.com?

RU: yea, why?

Jude: “three different movies revolving around the creations of a single comic book publishing company” is the quote?

RU: Yes!

RU: Ohhhhh. What the fuck!?

Jude I know, right!

[back on point]

Ok, wait a second here, “creations of a single comic book publishing company” really? Maybe it’s me, but hasn’t there been like five hundred million articles written about how creators don’t get the credit they deserve? Dear readers, go do me a favor, head over to Comicbook.com and do a quick “ctrl+F” (or “command” if you use a mac) and see if you can find the words “Lee” or “Kirby” go ahead I’ll wait.

It might not be as impressive as giving “Marvel Comics” credit for creating the properties, but how many times in history has “three different movies revolving around the creations” at least one of two cretors “[held] the top three positions at the worldwide box office for the year to date”?

But let’s not let a little thing like credit get in the way of comparing the creative prowess of Marvel Comics (who is a person according to the Supreme Court) to that of Prince:

At one point in 1984, Prince simultaneously had the number one album, single, and film in the U.S

It truly is impressive that Marvel, independent of any outside forces was able to create these comic book characters all by themselves.

And now, for an epic Prince solo:

About the Author - GHERU


RU, or as he’s known in the writers’ room: the cute one, is relatively unappreciated in his time.  RU’s YouTube show, RUviews is watched by literally multiple people every month and his Outhouse articles have helped line many a bird cage.  Before you send RU a message, he knows that there are misspelled words in this article, and probably in this bio he was asked to write.  RU wants everyone to know that after 25+ years of collecting he still loves comic books and can’t believe how seriously fanboys take them.  RU lives in Akron Ohio (unfortunately) with WIFE, ‘lilRuRu, and the @DogGodThor.  You can also find him on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, & even Google+ (if anyone still uses that).
