This Is the Way: Iconic Mandalorians from 1978 to 2020

Boba Fett is one of the most iconic characters from the original Star Wars trilogy. He made an immediate impression on fans, even with an underwhelming debut in the Star Wars Holiday Special and only minutes of screentime in The Empire Strikes Back. Our interest in Boba Fett and the other Mandalorians only increased from there. We read about them in books and comics, watched them in the prequel trilogy and the animated series The Clone Wars and Rebels and now The Mandalorian.

The Evolution of Spider-Man

2019 Update: With Spider-Man: Far From Home coming out in two weeks, we wanted to add the Iron Spider costume from Spider-Man: Homecoming, the Miles Morales costume from Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, and the stealth suit from Far From Home!

The Evolution of Captain Marvel

Carol Danvers debuted in the pages of Marvel Comics more than 50 years ago. In that time she has gained and lost fantastic superpowers and fought alongside many of the iconic superhero teams. She’s also been known as Ms. Marvel, Binary, Warbird, and Captain Marvel. Her upcoming solo film, Captain Marvel, marks her first appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe where she is one of the most powerful superheroes—if not the most powerful superhero. That’s because Captain Marvel has unbelievable strength, speed, and can fly. (Even in space!) Plus she can shoot energy from her hands and maybe even travel through time. So that’s pretty cool.

But that’s exactly what happened when director John Carpenter created Michael Myers in the 1978 film Halloween. Not only did it make the mask famous, but it also spawned a franchise and inspired an endless number of slasher films.

The Evolution of Black Panther

52 years ago in Fantastic Four #52, Black Panther debuted as the first black superhero in mainstream American comic books. His alter ego is T’Challa, head of the Panther Tribe and king of Wakanda, a fictional African nation in the Marvel Comics universe. T'Challa was married to Storm of the X-Men for six years and, as Black Panther, fought alongside the Fantastic Four and the Avengers. The character was never as well-known as these Marvel Comics heavyweights, but that appears to be changing. Actor Chadwick Boseman was lauded for his performance as T'Challa in Captain America: Civil War, and the Black Panther solo movie is setting records for advance ticket sales.
