They own the rights to major characters such as Captain America, Thor, the Hulk, Spider-Man, Iron Man, Black Widow, Dr. Strange, and countless others. Many of us have grown up around these famous figures, and have strong geek feelings about many of them. Scroll thru and we bet you can find something to geek out about!
