FilmFrak Jon’s Marvel Rankings

By: Jon Caron

Ever since I can remember, the numerous characters of the Marvel universe have been a giant part of my life. I’ve gone on countless adventures with these fictional beings that have shaped the way I view the real world and what could be possible in the infinite cosmos that we take for granted as we casually drift through it with our eyes forward, instead of up into the vast wonderment of it all.
