Probably to get ahead of those other shows that give you the history of comic book characters, Marvel has launched a new video series that gives new and longtime fans a quick history of some of its most popular characters.
Here’s the information from the company press release:
Starting November 23rd, with new episodes made available every Tuesday on Marvel.com and on Marvel’s YouTube page, fans will be introduced to a one minute episode that offers fans a background crash course on a selected Marvel character, storyline, weapon, location and more. It’s your cram session for the Marvel Universe available in a quickly digestible short-form video.
With such a vast catalog of MARVEL 101 content already scheduled for release on a weekly basis, on November 23rd fans will be able to watch the first 20 videos devoted to the following list of Marvel heroes:
Captain America – Steve Rogers
Captain America – Sam Wilson
Guardians of the Galaxy
Every Tuesday thereafter, MARVEL 101 will further explore the history of some of Marvel’s greatest heroes such as Thor (Jane Foster), Hawkeye, Punisher, Winter Soldier, War Machine, Wasp, Quicksilver, Angela, Venom, and much more!
With MARVEL 101 this is your chance to quickly explore some of the most popular characters of all time, or to simply take a refresher course on some of the most incredible entries within the Marvel library. Be sure to take notes – there may be a pop quiz.
