The Marvel Map Of The World


The Marvel Universe, it seems, is closer to home than you might believe.

Having already plotted hero hideouts and lairs of evil wrong-doers, US real-estate agency Movoto has now gone one better: mapping the birth places of the most iconic characters in the comic's history.

Superheroes, super-villains, sidekicks, character’s you’re not even sure existed (Captain Britain, anyone?) alike feature in this gratifyingly informative graphic which aims to provide the real origins of those comic icons.

If you were going to marvel at anything today, it's this - obviously.
