I love it and can't get enough of it!!!!!!!

I think they're a super fun way of getting kids like me reading and maybe even drawing and writing comics, but if you're under 12 maybe try Phoenix Comics. All the movies are definitely 11 or over except Daredevil, Electra and Ghost Rider. The TV series should also be 11 over. I say this although a parent might want to check through it before a child buys it or reads it as some are inappropriate for under 14.

Is It Any Good?

In addition to the meaty stuff for Marvel fans, the site also features plenty of plugs for Marvel toys, video games, and comic book subscriptions. Users need to register to do a lot of the fun things on the site, like download wallpaper, view digital comics, or post on message boards (kids younger than 13 have to get a parent's permission to register).

The coolest feature is the Marvel Universe -- a wiki, or community encyclopedia, of all people, places, and things Marvel. Registered users can add or edit entries; posting guidelines include helpful tips on writing clearly and succinctly.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
