Marvel To Allow Fans To Create Their Own Comics

If you 've ever wanted to create your own adventures with some of Marvel's iconic characters, now you have no excuse not to try.

Marvel Comics is introducing a new initiative with TapTap Comics called Marvel Create Your Own. It will allow fans to pose and manipulate fully rendered Marvel Characters as well as place them in a comics layout with a variety of backgrounds, props, text bubbles, and whatever text they want. If you've always wanted to make a comic but lacked the art skills to make it happen, this new way to do it seems tailor-made for you.

As you can see in the trailer (located above), a slew of characters will be initially available, including characters like Captain America, Spider-Man, Captain Marvel, Iron Man, Thor, Misty Knight, Punisher, Ant-Man, Silk, Nova, Hulk, Iron Fist, Black Panther, Spider-Gwen, and Gwenpool, among others.

Noticeably absent are characters from the Fantastic Four and the X-Men franchises, but then that shouldn't really come as a shock. Hopefully that will change int eh coming months, but for now, there are still plenty of options to choose from for your original idea.
