Everyone comes from somewhere, even if you have superpowers.
Following up their excellent 35 Hero Homes and 40 Villain Hideouts, Movoto’s Novelty Real Estate Blog returns with another interactive infographic that explores the origins of 75 of the most recognizable faces in the Marvel Universe. Okay, maybe a few are a little on the obscure side—but that adds to the fun.
The graphic features two maps, one that showcases international Marvel origins and one that focuses on heroes and villains who got their starts in the United States.
What’s surprising isn’t that so many of these super men and women come from New York City (or that Dr. Strange is actually from Philadelphia), but just how many other states are under-represented or not represented at all.
There’s also a useful character key with more details on the birthplace, citizenship, first appearance, and identity status of each featured Marvel character.
