Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has said it a thousand times in interviews over the past ten years. So many answers to so many questions include the phrase “in the comics,” or something to that effect. Simply put, Marvel Studios cares about the source material and it shows on the big screen.

Not surprisingly, it turns out the folks at Marvel Studios have a lot in common with the audience they serve.
