Check out the documentary’s synopsis:
“Since the beginning of comics, secret identities have been an integral part of superheroes and villains who lead ‘normal’ lives. But it’s the characters below that resonate with us through generations of fans. Since the advent of the Marvel Comics era in the early 1960s, Marvel writers and artists have used the notion of identities to examine the evolution of the concept of equal rights. These legendary Marvel creations and stories didn’t just reflect the world outside our window – they became a reflection of our own identities and who we really are.
Behind the Mask will feature guests from Marvel’s 80-year legacy, including the writers and artists behind the rise of characters like Black Panther, Miles Morales, Ms. Marvel, Luke Cage, the X-Men, Captain Marvel and many other characters in the Marvel Universe, highlighting Marvel’s impact on pop culture and the media. “
Marvel’s Behind the Mask, opens February 12 exclusively on Disney +.
