I recently sat down to find out more about Marvel’s multimedia empire. Here are the more interesting Marvel statistics and facts I was able to dig up. As always, I will be adding more and updating these periodically as I find new stuff. Be sure to check back regularly.

Please note that some of these numbers are easier to find than others, so some of these are based on news reports and not official company tallies. All stats are linked to their source unless it was sent to me directly from the company. No stat listed  should be considered in making any type of investment decision. In other words: This is the best I can find, but I don’t guarantee anything.

Stay in the Know!
