You can bet all you want, you'd lose. I still haven't seen the latest Guardians, Captain Marvel, Thor Love and Thunder, Black Panther 2, Shang Chi, Black Widow, Eternals, Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness, and others.

I got burned out on it all and sick of certain aspects of the formula they choose to follow. If they are going with the cast described in this thread? Hard pass.

Adam Driver has resting depressed professor face. The dude has no range except for some negative emotions. He's a terrible casting for the part as are the others.
i havent seen 3 of those, the rest sucked, so you might be on to something

The list was cobbled together from a submission to the United States Copyright Office (link). It would have never occurred to me to check there for 'insider info' of this nature. That is some good sleuthing in my opinion, lol.

First, Rom Space Knight is returning to Marvel and now, Micronauts will be returning as well

The Micronauts are returning to Marvel, and they once inspired the world seen in the third Ant-Man film while sharing a connection to Transformers.
The Micronauts would give rise to the Microverse, a concept which is now quite important in the Marvel Universe. It would even show up in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, albeit under a different. On top of this, the toys that the comics were based on also had a connection to Hasbro's Transformers, showing that there's much more to this micro-franchise than meets the eye.

When i think of the Comic book characters (all company brand names) that really broke the mold when came to how imaginatively genius of a creation they are.
I could think of several upon several comic characters that fit the bill.
And that's both superheroes and super villains, that includes Origin, Physical Powers & Abilities and Individual Characteristics...

Here's a look at my top 25 of such characters (Most Creative Super-hero/super-villain comic book Characters of All Time)
Am I leaving anyone else out ? ....

1 Spiderman
2 Wolverine
3 Daredevil
4 Superman
5 Silver Surfer
6 Incredible Hulk
7 Batman
8 Xmen
9 Galactus
10 Magneto
11 Storm
12 Iron Man
13 Dark Phoenix
14 Doctor Strange
15 Green Lantern
16 Elektra

I thought the cover image and costume designs of the Micronauts was cute back when their comics were being published in my Wonder years. but admittedly I never got into
the Micronauts. Thus they were a comic series that came and gone and never even pressed the popularity of an Avengers, Xmen, Fantastic Four, X-Factor , or even an Alpha Flight.

I can easily remember a Saquatch, Puck, North Star, Shaman, Vindicator ..but what main character really stood out with Micronauts ?

- Rom Spaceknight is a different story, .. a citizen race that suddenly sacrificed themselves from human flesh to living armor to save their world from
dire death and peril from the evil, sinister Dire Wraiths. I'll never forget the comic book episode that had Rom luring Galactus to the Dark Nebula, the world of the Dire Wraiths with hopes that Galactus the planet-devourer, would in turn devour Nebula itself. ...

At first, I wasn't into either Rom or Micronauts. I eventually picked up a Micronauts comic based on a cool cover and turned out to be a good story and great art. I became a big fan of the artist, Michael Golden. It was actually a Michael Golden cover of Rom that made me pick up a Rom comic and give it a try, it was better than I expected. I was the other way around I thought Micronauts were much than Rom. They never were as big of a superhero team in the Marvelverse, but still pretty interesting. The big three characters for me were Bug, Acroyear and their arch nemesis Baron Karza, he had a Darth Vader kinda look and could also morph into a centaur.

I thought the popularity of Bug was really beneficial for the Micronauts.

I agree with Starlin's sentiment 1000%. One of my biggest pet peeves is the lack of recognition of comic book characters or how the recognition is buried in movie or television credits.

Take Man of Steel for example. It's 45 seconds into the ending credits before 'Superman Created By Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster' appears on screen. In my opinion, both gentlemen's names should be slotted directly behind the movie title, which appears immediately after Clark and Lois smile sheepishly at each other before the credits roll.

Everyone in front and behind the camera deserve having their names showcased. Stars, directors, producers, studios, etc. These folks (we always hope) strive for a successful presentation and ranking in millions of dollars and/or viewers. However, no one would have the opportunity of accomplishing anything associated with the character or characters without the individual imagination of a character's creator.
