Marvel wonders "Who are the Mystery Men?"


A news teaser campaign rolls out.


Of course, the temptation to answer “a cult 1999 film starring Tom Waits, Janeane Garofalo, Ben Stiller, Wes Studi, Paul Reubens, Eddie Izzard and William H. Macy and created by Bob Burden” is irresistible. If only…


  1. Looks like the Unknown Soldier and Dr. Light.

  2. Tim Baldwin says:

    Looks like Michael Zulli art. Sign me up!

  3. Swampy says:

    Are these the guys showing up in secret avengers?

  4. Xenos says:

    Didn’t DC just announced Mystery Men as being one of their FlashPoint titles too? So even when DC and Marvel rip off smaller press comics they still copy each other?

  5. Sphinx Magoo says:

    My favorite is the Shoveler! More Shoveler!

  6. Joe Lawler says:

    Will Dane Cook still have a cameo?

  7. Peter Urkowitz says:

    I guess a case could be made that the trademark on Bob Burden’s Mysterymen has lapsed? When was the last time they were published? It’s a shame, though. That was a damn fine comic book.

  8. @Peter: I think in terms of IP, It is possible for two “Mystery Men” titles to exist trademark-wise provided they are different in terms of content.

  9. Rick Alexander says:

    The real mystery here is the whereabouts of the question mark.

  10. Darcy says:

    Looks like MarvelMan’s on the way back…

  11. Whoever they are, they’re standing inside Black Flag’s logo.

  12. Looks like The Fin is in there.
