Captain America, Iron Man, Spider-Man
Captain America, Iron Man, Spider-Man
I see that DC have a trio of characters who are considered the DC trinity(Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman). My question is, would there be any trio of characters from the Marvel universe who would be considered for the trinity moniker?
My guess would be Captain America, Iron Man & Thor.
When Captain America died, Americans heard it in an American way: Through the media. When Captain Britian died, the British felt it in their chests!
I keep saying, it's not he big three, it's the big six with Marvel.
Spider-Man, Wolverine, Hulk, Iron Man, Captain America, Thor.
These six control everything in the Marvel Universe. Excluding Thor, if anything happened to the rest of these five, you will not stop hearing about it in your other comics, ever.
Wolverine, Wolverine... and... Wolverine :)
I meant it seriously think of how many books this guy shows up in, I had hope some of the weight would be put off from him with X-23 but it just got worst :(
I don't think it's so much a trinity of characters as of franchises (in no particular order):
As far as individual characters, there's definitely more than a big three, IMO, but if there had to be a trinity, I'd say:
- Iron Man
The only problem with lists like this is things change often as far as popularity goes at Marvel.
Always remember this stuff isn't real.
Captain America, Spider-Man, Wolverine
The three big franchise stars. I wavered on Cap vs. Iron Man due to the movies, but I think Cap is more iconic and instantly recognizable.
Pretty much this. You have the three big franchises that everything branches from which is Marvel's "Trinity" F4 is important but they aren't always directly related to the metaplot like these three.
Marvel has many many more popular heroes than DC but no real Trinity that is recognized by everyone in the world.
If I had to pick three, I would go Cap, Spidey, and Wolverine. 99% of people know those three I would say. The movie may have pushed Iron Man in there instead of Cap but I still think Cap is more iconic.
No chance of cap being part of the trinity.
Hulk >>> Cap
Thor >>>> Cap
Iron Man >>>>>> Cap
Whoreverine >>>>>>>>>>> Cap
Avengers Trinity = Iron Man, Thor and Hulk
Marvel Trinity = Iron Man, Spider-Man and Whoreverine
Superman= first and most important, Batman =most popular for years and years, Wonder Woman= 1st major female hero. They're not all the most popular, they're the ones you can't imagine DC not publishing.
Marvel's Trinity is slightly hampered by having it's most popular charcters pop up in the '60s, but I think Spider-Man is an easy pick as the most important solo hero in Marvel's history. Captain America has been a popular character for 70 years, has one of the greatest, most recognizable costumes ever, and everyone knows what he's about- he's America. Wolverine is a great character with a huge presence since the early '90s, but I think he lacks longevity- he just hasn't been around long enough to get the pop culture familiarity that Hulk has. Wolverine is bigger now, no doubt, but he's just not as basic and iconic as the Hulk. Hulk has been on TV since the '70s, appeared in multiple books for almost 50 years, and is easy to grasp- "You wouldn't like me when I'm angry" resonates in a way that Wolverine doesn't. Iron Man is a pretty strong fifth wheel, but doesn't have the name recognition and instant visual recognition of the top 3 or the popularity of Wolverine. His huge push is a factor of the last ten years, not one of natural progression since the '60s.
I miss when the big three was Spider-Man, Hulk, and Captain America.
Right now I think its Wally Webs, Wolvie , and Iron--Man.
