Merchandise

Piracy

Marvel has a lot of merchandise which can lead to pirating of most products. Like pirating everything from music to movies and copying the logo to make duplicate merchandise.

Most Of The Marvel Memoribilia Your Seeing Might Be Fake!

A lot of people started making companies which started illegally using the companies name to make a lot of revenue that at one time they couldn't keep track.

Why Is There A Lot of Marvel Merchandise Out There?

When the company was started it started going bankrupt and they needed to do something so they landed into the merchandise business and movie industry. After this Marvel started investing a lot of money. So most of the Marvel Comic book writers were quite poor and did anything for money. Even leaking information. (Including Stan Lee) But it didn't really matter cause now Marvel has reached new heights.

Future Of The Company

Marvel Has An Amazing Future

Marvel was recently bought by Disney and sales has shot up. Disney is making 15 new films with Marvel. This has got fans highly anticipated with Marvel.

But it is believed that the films are going to be a blockbuster!
