History of Mars in the Marvel Universe?

Post by Jindianajonz » 19 Jun 2021, 00:10

I know the moon gets a lot of attention, especially in the X-Franchise, but have there been any major stories set on Mars? Are there any established people/cultures/locales? I feel like there HAS to be some Silver Age stuff that dealt with Martians; has any of it stuck around as canon?

I would start with Killraven:

So on one hand we have the existence of a being who can reset the entire timeline, destroying everything…, and on the other hand we have a few mind wipes and some gaslighting. You're right, totally evenly weighted.

Sorry, I meant 616. Although that article did remind me that Pete Wisdom fought off the Martians in his eponymous mini series.

The Martian Masters weren't native -- just using it as a staging ground.

Ex Nihilo previously made a garden on Mars in Hickman's Avengers.
