Marvel announces one box set to rule them all

Some of the most classic and landmark stories of the Marvel Universe are about to see a collection unlike any other in Marvel Famous Firsts.

Yes, the box is designed to look like the iconic version of Avengers Mansion form the 80s/90s. For that alone, this set is worth owning. Of course, you’re going to get a lot more for your money than just a box, no matter how cool it may be.

Inside that case, is a collection of eleven Marvel Masterwork hardcovers that laid the foundation for the Marvel of today. Interestingly enough, Marvel has this set listed as ten books, but there are clearly eleven counted in the box. Regardless of numerical errors rethought, there are huge tales here, featuring some of the biggest Marvel superheroes of all time and all presented in hardcover format.

“This is one of the most epic collections Marvel has ever compiled. Not only do these Masterworks retell the origins of Marvel’s iconic heroes, but they are collected and presented in a gorgeous slipcase built to resemble the historic Avengers Mansion,” says David Gabriel, SVP Sales and Marketing. “If that wasn’t enough, this collection is coupled with a beautiful poster signed by Stan Lee. It doesn’t get grander then this!”
