Marvel Dads

We pay tribute to the Dads of Marvel! Most were honored, others overwhelmed, and some have relationships with their kids that are best summed up as “complex”! But they all share one thing in common – parenthood!

Super-Powered Parents


Wolverine learns that he has a son who takes after him…maybe a little too much! Witness the first appearance of Daken, who shares his father’s claws, powers and temper.

Cable absconds with the baby girl he believes to be the mutant messiah in order to protect her. Landing in a dystopic alternate future, Cable must play both guardian and father!

With the lives of every Inhuman hanging in the balance – including his soon-to-be-born daughter’s – Quicksilver speeds to the headquarters of the Fantastic Four to supplicate them for aid and the salvation of his adoptive race!


It’s father vs. grandfather as Quicksilver takes on Magneto in a battle for Luna Maximoff!

Scott Lang

Cassie Lang was given a second lease on life, and now Scott Lang gets a second chance at fatherhood! Will he be able to be a better dad this time around, or is history doomed to repeat itself?
