    Long, long ago, in a lifetime far away, my younger brother obtained a copy of a two-volume, paperback set in a slipcase. it was called "Origins of Marvel Comics/Son of Origins." It was probably a Christmas gift, or birthday present. I don't really remember. But I do remember being enchanted by the books, which reprinted the origin stories of some of the best known superheroes in the so-called "Marvel Universe."

It was probably a Christmas gift, or birthday present. I don't really remember. But I do remember being enchanted by the books, which reprinted the origin stories of some of the best known superheroes in the so-called "Marvel Universe." Fast forward to perhaps ten days ago, when I discovered there was a follow-up volume, called "Bring on the Bad Guys - Origins of Marvel Villains." It was published in 1976, a couple years after Origins and Son of Origins. I don't know how I missed it until now! Anyway, I ordered a copy and just got my hands on it a few days ago. So far, the high point is the opening sequence, which provides the origin story of Doctor Doom. (from Fantastic Four). Then, we get the Dread Dormammu (from Doctor Strange). The book moves on to Loki (from Thor); the Red Skull (from Captain America); Green Goblin (from Spider-Man); plus some villains completely unfamiliar to me, introduced in The Incredible Hulk and Silver Surfer. I'm now going to take a break from this review, and maybe finish up once I've read the entire book. But for now, I'll just say that while the stories are often primitive, the art work is captivating. In particular, Jack Kirby seems to have been an impossibly prolific and fluid artist. And Ditko! If Kirby was King of Comics, Ditko was the Kandinsky of Comics!

    Super fun read! Granted, it is a bit of nostalgia for me. This book is all about super-hero comics as they were when I was a kid. Fun to reminisce, but I can see where a contemporary (read: younger) reader could find the content very dated if not down right antiquated. I would hope, however, that any reader would at least appreciate that this book represents the stories and artwork of Silver/Bronze age comics and a significant part of Marvel history. So even if it all seems a bit quaint by more Super fun read! Granted, it is a bit of nostalgia for me. This book is all about super-hero comics as they were when I was a kid.

So even if it all seems a bit quaint by more modern standards, it is absolutely the foundation upon which the modern Marvel world is built. And besides, how can you not like Stan Lee's goofy delivery of the story intros?

    Awesome. I didn't really know a whole lot about the Marvel baddies so this was fun to read. Stan Lee's intros to the chapters are brilliant. Also, the first thing I've read with Dr. Strange in it. I need to read more.

    A superb book for learning the origin stories of many of Marvel's key superhero characters. The 1st issue reprinted in this book lets you read these great stories without the huge price you would have to pay to buy them individually. Very recommend to any comic fan.
