Marvel 80s

The decade that brought us big hair, big shoulder pads, and big changes.

Michael is King, Madonna is Queen, and Prince rounds out the pop/rock royalty. Punky Brewster, ALF, and The Cosby Show entertain people in front of the ‘boob tube’. MTV still plays music videos, and ‘Reality’ TV is not yet a big thing.

The end of the Cold War might be in sight, but there is still plenty of tension and hate between Communists and Capitalists. Germany is still divided, and it’s considered dangerous to go into East Berlin if you don’t ‘belong’ there.

In recent years, there have been heroes that have emerged — Iron Man/Tony Stark, Captain America, Thor, and more — that make up the team known as the Avengers. They have counterparts in other countries, but few have as full and well rounded a pool to pull from.

On the darker side of heroes and villains, Mutants and Metahumans have come creeping into the common knowledge. Bit by bit, article by article, exposed coverup to exposed coverup — people are starting to know there are people with superpowers. The news really exploded when Chernobyl went into meltdown — Mutants with extraordinary powers came to help, alone, or in twos and threes. Some could take the insane levels of radiation and live, others could help detect where radiation had seeped and crept along the ground, and tried to help contain the area.

The one sure thing is that there is a mix of sentiments — Thinking they could be a good sign of things to come, fear of those our enemies control, and worry of what it means for the human race as a whole.
