10 International Marvel Comics Heroes You Probably Haven’t Heard Of

First appearance in 1989 in Alpha Flight #78Captain Forsa was a hero operating in Brazil who, during a live press conference, devoted himself to investigating the superhuman murders that occurred in South America at the time, wishing to bring the killer to justice.

Although his name literally means Captain Strength (ignoring one of Marvel’s biggest mistakes, which is a typo in his name), Captain Forsa soon fails, a victim of the villainous Zeitgeist who had tricked Forsa into believing that he was the reporter from earlier in the story. Due to his incredibly short existence in the realm of Marvel Comics, it’s no wonder the mention of Marvel’s Captain Forsa baffles even die-hard fans.

Guillotine

Jeannine Sauvage was only twelve years old when she discovered the La Fleur du Mal sword hidden in a chest in a normally locked room in her house. Upon finding the sword, her blood contacted the blade, and she was cursed to wield the sword and continue the legacy of her evil bloodthirsty ancestors – but instead she chose to use her curse for the greater good.

Jeannine took the pseudonym of Guillotine, becoming the vigilante of Paris and fighting against the forces of evil, against the will of her sword. Although she only debuted in 2015, Guillotine has already become one of Marvel’s top teenage superheroes, though she doesn’t yet have many stories of her own. Guillotine’s rich history and mysterious family history would lead to some very interesting stories for Marvel to tell in the future, which would also introduce more fans to this new French hero.

Glow

Granddaughter of World War II superheroine Golden Woman, Ryoko Sabuki is a Japanese-American heroine famous for her superhero and singing careers across Japan within the Marvel Universe. After the Watcher’s eye exploded, Ryoko discovered glimpses of her grandmother’s past and secrets kept by the Invaders, and she traveled to Japan for answers.

Unfortunately, in the real world, most Marvel fans aren’t aware of Radiance, despite its multiple ties to previous Marvel lore and great potential for fantastic Japan-focused storylines. However, Radiance only recently debuted in 2014 in All New Invaders #4so it’s very likely that future Marvel stories could feature Radiance, which would help introduce her to the wider Marvel fanbase.

Croissant

Dan-Bi was raised in Korea by her single father, who was forced by Morgan Le Fay to collect powerful artifacts for her until he mysteriously disappeared. Searching for her father, Dan-Bi found a red bear mask in her bedroom, and as soldiers broke into her home, she prayed for protection – summoning the bear spirit Io with the mask.

Dan-Bi could summon Io and fight alongside her, forming an unbreakable friendship, as they agreed to search for Dan-Bi’s father. Dan-Bi and Io, or Crescent, first appeared in 2015 in Marvel’s Future Fightand have remained hidden from most fans for far too long.

Luna Snow

Another Korean hero, Seol Hee became a K-pop idol after losing her parents and wanting to support her family, quickly rising to fame and founding the K-pop group 4L1T. While performing at Stark Arena, Joro Spider and an AIM Cell attacked and held the band hostage in a Stark Industries reactor – which exploded, giving Seol cryokinesis powers.

Taking the alias of Luna Snow, Hee’s first major battle took place during War of the Kingdoms, one of Marvel’s recent comic book events, where she fought alongside the Agents of Atlas, another young Marvel superhero team. Hee has only been in Marvel Comics since 2019, so many fans are still unaware of her backstory and abilities, which may be explored further in future Marvel stories.

Clover

First appeared in the Contest of Champions #1 in 1982, Molly Fitzgerald accidentally became Ireland’s hero after many years before her father had taken Molly and her brother to the top of the mountains of Northern Ireland and asked heaven to grant his son powers – which instead granted Molly the power of luck.

Shamrock was among many other international heroes introduced in the infamous storyline. The contest of championsand therefore, not much is known about her backstory – and only die-hard fans will recognize her name, as she has yet to appear in many Marvel Comics storylines.

Arab knight

Abdul Qamar often went on trade errands for goods to different cities in Saudi Arabia, and during one of these trade errands he discovered a magic carpet and a scimitar while hiding in a tomb. He discovered that they were gifts from the gods of the desert and had belonged to his ancestor since the 13th century.

From there, he decided to carry on his ancestor’s legacy, using magic items for the greater good as an Arabian knight. Sadly, Abdul hasn’t appeared in many modern comics due to his death in Love at first sight #55 in 2001, which means most Marvel fans have no idea who he is. However, we hope that Marvel will further explore the history of Abdul’s ancestors in future Marvel comics.

Grid

An Indian engineer, Dinesh Deol’s Inhuman heritage granted him unique abilities after being exposed to the Terrigen Mist. He developed magnetokinesis powers and lost his hands, and was soon contacted by Medusa and many other powerful members of the Inhumans, whom he quickly befriended.

Dinesh debuted in 2015 on Free Comic Book Day and has yet to appear in many other Marvel Comics stories, so most Marvel fans haven’t been introduced to Grid yet. . However, Dinesh is one of many new young heroes that Marvel has created over the past few years. Readers can therefore expect to see him featured prominently in future comics.

Dream Keeper

Originally from the Australian state of Queensland, Willie Walkaway grew up listening to the legends of his Aboriginal family’s history, but wanted to live his life in the city as a police officer. However, when investigating apparent monster sightings, Willie realized his family’s legends were true – beginning his path to becoming the new Dreamguard.

Despite Willie’s legacy and the many legends he’s been told about, readers haven’t seen much of Willie Walkaway or his family in Marvel Comics, even though he made his first appearance decades ago in 1995. As a result, even die-hard Marvel fans can bow their heads at the mention of Dreamguard, a character time forgot.

collective man

First appeared in The Incredible Hulk #250 in 1980, the Man Collective is the formation of five identical brothers – Han, Lin, Sun, Chang and Ho Tao-Yu – who are able to combine their strength, intelligence, stamina, speed, durability and senses into a single superhuman.

Although he was chosen to fight during the Contest of champions, the Man Collective still remains relatively unknown to most Marvel fans, due to its very minor appearances in Marvel Comics since its debut. The Collective Man has gone from victim to hero to villain, and he just happens to be one of Marvel’s most underrated characters who deserves to be put back in the spotlight.
