The Marvel universe is filled with characters from plenty of different series, all spawning from comics. The following are some of the major characters' backgrounds and other information on them.
Spider-Man is generally known as the most famous of all Marvel super heroes. He first appeared in Amazing Fantasy #15, and has since been a fan favorite. His abilities include being able to crawl on walls, shoot out webbing, have super human strength, spider-sense, and other, not as notable abilities. He became Spider-Man at the age of fifteen when he was bitten by a radioactive spider, and within the following days he started to realize his amazing powers.
Iron Man (real name Tony Stark) is a superhero plated in red metal. The suit gives many powers to Iron Man, meaning Tony Stark doesn't have actual super powers, but rather his suit allows him to have super powers.
The Fantastic Four are a group of four superpowered humans who were all transformed into their current form during a freak accident. Before the accident, they were all friends, and Invisible Woman and the Human Torch are siblings.
