The world of Marvel comics is so full that it can be a little overwhelming at times. In over 75 years, Marvel has written about 40,000 comics and has created about 800 superheroes. Even the most die-hard fan couldn't come close to naming them all. Most of these characters will never get any screen time in Hollywood, but Marvel studios is doing its darndest to get as many as they can on the big screen. Comic fans rush to the theaters every month to watch the latest Marvel movie. The first few viewings are for pure enjoyment, but the next several are to scour the background. Marvel is known for including loads of Easter eggs in their films, so everyone is trying to spot something that has gone unnoticed.
One of the huge treats for comic fans is hearing about or seeing a lesser-known superhero in the background. With so many mutants running around, a watchful eye can spot a superhero here or there that would otherwise be hidden. Some of the heroes and villains on this list are nothing more than passing Easter eggs, while others are full-blown characters, just not yet in their "super" form.
What we've done is collect the best of the supers that have been camouflaged in Marvel films. Maybe they were parading around as ordinary folk and people overlooked them or maybe they were hidden in the background. Either way, we want to highlight these hidden gems for you for the next several times you watch. Here are 15 amazing superheroes you never knew were secretly in Marvel films
15 Doc Samson – The Hulk
14 Nova – Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer
13 Supernova – The Guardians of the Galaxy
12 The Leader – The Incredible Hulk
11 Caliban - X-Men: Apocalypse
10 Young X-Men – X-Men: First Class
9 Steven Strange – Spider-Man 2/Captain America: The Winter Soldier
8 Fred Dukes – X-Men: Apocalypse
7 Amadeus Cho – The Hulk
6 Jocasta – Avengers: Age of Ultron
5 The Punisher - Captain America: The Winter Soldier
4 Cosmo the Space Dog - Guardians of the Galaxy
3 The Human Torch - Captain America: The First Avenger
2 Adam Warlock - Thor: The Dark World & The Guardians of the Galaxy
1 Man-Thing – Iron Man 3
Let's be clear. Man-Thing doesn't appear in Iron Man 3, but his existence is all but confirmed. Here's how. First, there is Ellen Brandt; she's the fiery red-head played by Stephanie Szostak. You see her scars? Keep that in mind. In the comics, Brandt is the wife of Ted Sallis, the poor SOB who eventually turns into the hideous creature, Man-Thing. One night, Brandt tried to steal Sallis' research at gunpoint and eventually shot him. Before death, however, Sallis ingested a serum that he had developed, turning him into Man-Thing. Later, when he touched Brandt's face, he burnt it and forever scarred it. So, we can infer, that if Brandt has scars and works for AIM, Man-Thing must be out there somewhere.
