The Origins of Marvel’s Most Powerful Villain and his role in MCU

Long-time Marvel Comics readers may recognize the villain known as the Beyonder.

Long-time Marvel Comics readers may recognize the villain known as the Beyonder. Secret Wars, Marvel Comics’ first event incorporating all of its franchises, debuted in 1984. Regular villains were insufficient on such a big scale. Marvel required a danger large enough to unify all of its characters, heroes and villains alike, and so the Beyonder was formed.

The Beyonder was introduced as an incomprehensible entity from another realm, one beyond the standard Marvel Universe, and he could play with the lives of even the most powerful characters, like Galactus, as if they were toys in his hands. Marvel just revealed that the Beyonder would return as the adversary in a new Defenders: Beyond series from Al Ewing and Javier Rodriguez, which will debut in June 2022. As a result, the Beyonder’s origins and history as Marvel’s most formidable villain have never been more appropriate for revisiting.

The Beyonder debuted in ‘Secret Wars.’

The Beyonder was once the supreme entity of another dimension who was brought into the Marvel Multiverse by a failed scientific experiment that changed Owen Reece into the Molecule Man. He began to examine this odd and intriguing environment after he arrived, and his own character altered as a result. He was fascinated about how mortals experienced desire, something he lacked earlier, and intended to conduct his own experiment. During Secret Wars, he abducted a huge number of superheroes and supervillains and brought them to a planet he built called Battleworld, where the two groups would combat, with the winner receiving any wish granted. In this way, the Beyonder could determine if humanity’s strongest urge was good or evil. Doctor Doom was eventually able to temporarily take the Beyonder’s power, and after retrieving it, the creature returned his victims to Earth and fled.

Secret Wars (by Jim Shooter, Mike Zeck, and John Beatty) was created after toy company Mattel approached Marvel about making a new line of toys based on the publisher’s characters. The event would be used to promote and sell the product, and the limited-edition Secret Wars series would go on to become the best-selling comic book series in 25 years. This encouraged Marvel to have company-wide crossovers every year, a tradition that is still in place today and has grown to the point where many events are taking place at the same time.

The Beyonder’s Revenge

In fact, Secret Wars was so popular that Marvel immediately followed it up with a sequel four months later. The Beyonder was no longer willing to simply observe the lives and struggles of these interesting lower beings; he wanted to be a part of them. He created a corporeal body and interacted with a variety of other characters, both heroes and villains. The Beyonder’s limitless power and desire to experience desire like a human were a hazardous combination, prompting the Molecule Man to exploit a vulnerability and destroy the Beyonder’s physical body, unleashing his energy into another realm. Secret Wars II was not as successful as its predecessor, but Marvel will not leave the Beyonder alone.

The Fantastic Four and Doctor Doom go to the Beyonder’s realm in Fantastic Four vol. 1 #319 by Steve Englehart, Keith Pollard, Joe Sinnott, and George Roussos, where they encounter the Molecule Man and two other “superior” creatures, Kubik and the Shaper of Worlds. In that scenario, it is revealed that the Beyonder was the result of a botched attempt to make a Cosmic Cube, a construct of nearly infinite energy that a mystery race of extradimensional creatures known as the Beyonders “give” to lesser species in order to encourage their progress. This Cube’s energy was divided between the Beyonder and the Molecule Man, which is why the former felt incomplete and attempted to fill that hole with his Secret Wars. Like Kubik and the Shaper, the Beyonder and Reece eventually united and grew into a “adult” Cosmic Cube.

The Illuminati have arrived.

The Illuminati, the hidden conspiracy of heroes who have been covertly running things behind the scenes in the Marvel Universe, modified the Beyonder’s tale yet again. Professor Xavier revealed in New Avengers: Illuminati #3 by Brian Michael Bendis, Brian Reed, Jim Cheung, Mark Morales, and Justin Ponsor that he read the Beyonder’s mind during the first Secret Wars and discovered that he was, in fact, an Inhuman mutant who acquired godlike abilities after entering the Terrigen Mist. Black Bolt, the King of the Inhumans, was also a member of the Illuminati, and he simply ordered the Beyonder to depart their realm, thereby retconning the end of Secret Wars II.

This was then retconned during the buildup to Marvel’s second event, Secret Wars, which eventually revealed the truth about the Beyonders. Hank Pym returns from his tour of a collapsing Multiverse in New Avengers #30 (by Jonathan Hickman, Dalibor Talija, and Rick Magyar) and explains the Beyonders are the reason for the Incursion and the gradual destruction of everything that is. He also claims that the previous Beyonder seen by Earth’s heroes was “a kid unit” that had yet to completely grow. Jonathan Hickman confirmed in an interview with CBR that the Beyonder discovered by the Illuminati was only a fiction, erasing the Inhuman origin tale. This also restored the Beyonder’s previous standing as a being superior even to many of Marvel’s cosmic entities.

Who destroyed the Beyonders?

During the second Secret Wars, Doctor Doom lured all the Beyonders out and annihilated them, absorbing their power and salvaging what was left of reality after the Incursions. This should have been the end of the Marvel Universe’s most terrible menace, yet there are signs that the Beyonders may have persisted in some way or another. The Beyond Corporation, a shadowy business, appears to be governed by a whole separate set of Beyonders who survived Secret Wars.

So, what about the original Beyonder? His participation in the forthcoming Defenders: Beyond series might be part of a wider Marvel Universe battle suggested by writer Al Ewing and artist Javier Rodriguez. Given Ewing’s links to the Beyond Corporation as the writer of Captain America and the Mighty Avengers, it’s feasible that this new series will link the Beyond Corporation to the Beyonder and ultimately disclose what happened to Marvel’s most formidable enemy.

Wolverine and Deadpool

Who is Deadpool in Wolverine?

One of the worse films in the Fox X-Men film series is frequently cited as X-Men Origins: Wolverine. And the portrayal of Wade Wilson, a.k.a. Deadpool, in the movie has drawn some of the most severe criticism. Fans were ecstatic to see The Merc With the Mouth on the big screen when it was released in 2009.

All information you need to know about Deadpool

If you’ve been on the Internet lately, you’ve definitely noticed some peculiar advertising for a superhero film starring Ryan Reynolds. Funny, but Ryan Reynol’d’ attractive face 90% of the movie time was hidden.

Why Deadpool always wear a mask? Why is the hip-hop music so strange and off-key? Why so much profanity? Because, ladies and gentlemen, this is Deadpool, a superhero who takes great pleasure in the bizarre.

We’re here to fill you in on the latest Marvel Comics superhero movie, which will be distributed by 20th Century Fox. Hold on to your chimichangas because this is going to be a wild journey.

Deadpool: Who is he?

Deadpool

Deadpool, actual name Wade Wilson, is an aggressive mercenary with a strong background in martial arts and swordplay. He was given fast healing abilities through the Weapon X program, effectively rendering him immortal.

Deadpool’s entire body appears to be extensively scarred since his cancerous cells regenerate just as quickly as his regular cells due to the fact that he was diagnosed with cancer at the time of the Weapon X experiment (and possibly wreaking havoc on his brain chemistry). The whole face mask is the result. And the power to sarcastically leave while being beheaded.

Fun Fact: Deadpool enjoys chimichangas a lot.

What connection does Deadpool have to the X-Men?

Deadpool


Deadpool originally joined the New Mutants, a group of young X-Men, as a supervillain, but over time, he evolved into an antihero who fought alongside Wolverine, the X-Men, and even a few Avengers.

Before acquiring his regenerative abilities, Wade Wilson, a chatty mercenary, appeared as Deadpool on the big screen. Reynolds portrayed him in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and even though the film wasn’t that great and fans bemoaned the muting of the infamously nicknamed “Merc with a Mouth,Reynolds made enough of an impression in both of those and in the leaked Deadpool test footage that the studio wanted him for a second go-round.

What’s up with Deadpool?

With an eerie similarity to the DC Comics villain Deathstroke in terms of both outfit and abilities, Deadpool made his debut in The New Mutants comics in 1991. He was co-created by Fabian Nicieza and Rob Liefeld, and his name, Wade Wilson, is a play on Deathstroke’s true name, Slade Wilson.

Since his debut in the 1990s, Deadpool has quickly developed a devoted fan base among comic book readers and convention goers. Seriously, during conventions, everyone is dressed as Deadpool. Why? Because he breaks the fourth wall and is a humorous parody of well-known superheroes.

Deadpool frequently brings up the fact that he is in a comic book, much to the amusement of his readers and the consternation of his fellow comic book characters. The whole thing is turned into a meta-commentary joke as he even leans into his similarities to every other comic book character, including Deadshot, Deathstroke, and a loose version of Spider-Man.

Should You Read Any Deadpool Comics?

Deadpool

Short answer is Yes, Yes, Yes! You should try these one:

  • Deadpool, Volume The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly (2013) features a humorous character team-up with Captain America and Wolverine as well as a Deadpool origin story.
  • X-Force Uncanny Vol. 1 (2011–2012): The mercenary’s first significant team-up and a more somber side (along with a costume change).
  • No partnership is better than that of the rambunctious and talkative Deadpool and the mute and stern part-cyborg Cable from the 2004 film Cable & Deadpool.
  • Joe Kelly’s Deadpool (1997–1999) is widely regarded as the archetypal version of the antihero and served as the start of the comic book character’s comedy career.

Blade lost it’s director

Almost everyone is aware of what is going on with Warner Brother’s Flash movie. The movie had other issues before Ezra Miller’s weird string of detentions and accusations, though. The Flash was changing directors as quickly as Jay Garrick vibrating through solid objects before their current PR disaster with the movie’s leading man. In hindsight, The Flash’s director departure was the first sign that the movie was in trouble.

Blade

We are a little concerned because of the current news regarding the Blade movie. The entrance of Blade in the Marvel universe has been eagerly anticipated by fans of the franchise, along with the appearances of Deadpool, Wolverine, and Daredevil. Blade from 1998 was the first film to provide Marvel as a corporation the boost it needed before Iron Man became the MCU’s success trigger. In any case, the director in charge of bringing a vision of Blade to the MCU has made the decision to leave the project two months before filming is set to begin.

Variety has reported that Bassam Tariq is no longer the “Blade” director for Marvel Studios.

Tariq’s resignation is unexpected because filming on Marvel’s next film about the renowned comic book vampire slayer was supposed to start in November. Along with Delroy Lindo and Aaron Pierre in supporting roles, Mahershala Ali will play the lead in the movie. According to those with direct knowledge of the matter, Tariq will continue to be involved in “Blade” as an executive producer even if he will no longer be the director.
