Defenders Then and Now

It's about to get a little crowded in Hell's Kitchen. The time has arrived for Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist to assemble as The Defenders premieres on Netflix this month. The show will follow the storyline from the end of Daredevil season 2, in which all of the characters finally cross paths to take down The Hand, an ancient organization that is (as you may have guessed) up to no good. If you've watched any of Marvel's shows on Netflix, you know that the personalities of these characters are not of those who work well in teams. Therefore, The Defenders is bound to offer some fun and intriguing character dynamics. In fact, we've already seen some of it in the trailer!  

Though this will be the first live action version of The Defenders; the group has existed in comics since 1971 when Doctor Strange recruited Namor and Hulk to form a team that eventually added others as well. This lineup may be an all-new team of Defenders, but they do each have their own history in comics. Most of the characters featured in the series were introduced in comic books more than 30 years ago, with the exception of Jessica Jones, whose first appearance in Alias #1 came in 2001. Jones also happens to be the one who most resembles her initial comic book appearance. Take a look below at our interactive images comparing the main four Defenders and several supporting characters to their original comic book...

The Evolution of Spider-Man

2017 Update: just in time for Spider-Man: Homecoming, we've updated our infographic to include post-2014 costumes. Don't call it a sequel, more like a soft reboot! The original blog introduction is below:

"Spider-Man, Spider-Man, does whatever a spider can." Boy...that song is almost as iconic as Spider-Man himself! Even though the classic red suit with black webbing detail is the most...

A Justice League of Their Own

The 25th anniversary of A League of their Own is coming up and we wanted to do something to celebrate. It’s a funny and positive story, after all, plus we’re suckers for a good sports movie. So we got this idea to combine A League of Their Own with the DC Comics team Justice League, because we’re also a fan of mashups and puns. (But don’t you dare call them mashupuns, because that’s going too far.) Anyway, if you combine those two you get A Justice League of Their Own, which is pretty obvious if you’ve already read the title of this series of original poster art. This time, though, it won’t be the Justice League versus the Legion of Doom like in that episode of Batman: The Brave and the Bold. Instead, they’ll be facing off against the Parademons and their ringer, Steppenwolf. Of course, the Justice League of Their Own has to win, because there’s no crying in baseball. Hey, enough of the jokes, let’s get in to the posters!

Evolution of Catwoman Header Image

Catwoman made her comic book debut 77 years ago in Batman #1 and has since been one of the Caped Crusader's greatest villains while also being a love interest of Bruce Wayne. Despite the fact that they're both on opposite sides of the law, there has always been an attraction between Batman and Catwoman. He even proposed to her recently! Throughout her early years, she was known as "The Cat" or "Cat-Woman" before being consistently referred to as Catwoman.
