Believe it or not, there was a time long ago when Marvel TV shows were not very much associated with the MCU. There seems to be a strange notion in these times Vandavision Is born from Avengers: Endgame And leading in Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness . . . But once, there were Marvel TV shows that stood on their own. Some did not even mention the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
It may seem like an exaggeration to label these miracle TV shows as “forgotten”, but let’s be real: the rate at which the MCU is taking television remains less interconnected than the shows previously listed Supposedly, there will not be long. Past. So let’s pour one out for Peggy Carter, David Holler and the rest of the gang. Let’s celebrate these Marvel TV shows from a bygone era!
Peggy Carter’s adventures in the US in the 1940s were actually heavily linked to MCU lore, though never vigorously. Peggy’s introduction was used in the series Captain America: The First Avenger As a springboard to explore her struggle as a secret agent, who also happens to be a single woman in her 40s. However, from there, Agent carter Make your way to a specific corner of the MCU.
Consisting of only eighteen episodes spread over two seasons, it seems unanimous Agent carter It was taken from us very soon. The show was a period piece [email protected] The female protagonist explores the early days of the Marvel universe. Nothing like this has happened before, nor has anything like this happened. But at least we got to see that Peggy would get a happy ending for it Avengers: Endgame.
As far as it goes Agent carter You can get as the situation. Legion Not part of the MCU, but it is still a Marvel property – a complex one. The origins of the protagonist David Haller can be traced X Men Comic books, where he was introduced as Professor X’s super-powerful schizophrenic son.
The show was produced long before Fox’s takeover by Disney – which held the rights X Men Franchise at that time – that is Legion There is zero connection to the MCU. However, David’s tragic feats are barely mentioned. X Men Movies either. Sure, David Healer has mutants in the world, and the main rogue is a classic X Men Villain Shadow King, but Legion Is more interested in being his own thing.
Legion It lasted three seasons and used its twenty-seven episodes to portray Dawood’s struggles with mental health in a compelling, visually unique way. The result was a superhero show that stood apart from everyone else, regardless of its relationship X Men mythology.
Lyrics X Men Shows that are not at all X Men Shows, Gifted The mutants-focused TV series was another attempt on Fox’s behalf. The story takes place in a future where the X-Men have disappeared and any remaining mutants are hunted by the society. While set in more identities X MenMore than the world Legion, Gifted The movie franchise did not feature any major connections.
Does not mean Gifted Didn’t get to have fun with Classic Marvel X Men The overall theme of elements, such as mutant-hunting sentinels and minority groups being tortured – A. X Men Prime. The show also featured some characters that would be familiar to comic book fans, such as the teleporting mutant Blink, the Apache mutant Thunderbird, and Magneto’s daughter Polaris.
Back to the MCU – or appropriately suggests that theoretically the sets are on the MCU, but try their best to stay away from movies – The runway. Based on a beloved Marvel comic book with some cult following, the show followed the adventures of a group of teenagers who looked after their parents. The children’s reaction, of course, was to become an unofficial superteam to battle their elders.
As The runway Going deeper into the three-season run, its tie-ins for the MCU became a bit more noticeable – especially during a storyline featuring Dark Dimensions and Darkhole agents of SHIELD. However, the show always felt independence due to the fact that its protagonists were too young to care about all the grown-ups, like the heroes of the MCU caring for the Avengers.
The formula worked, with each season The runway A better critical reception and series finale is considered a triumph among Marvel TV shows.
Cloak and dagger
Unlike the characters in The runway, Clock and Dagger have been around Marvel Comics for decades. And yet, like the characters The runway, Clock and Dagger is not really any sort of mass mythology or connection to other characters that a TV adaptation would need to honor. Therefore, like other Marvel TV shows on this list, Cloak and dagger Mostly works on their own.
The show follows the cautious adventures of two teen titanic cloaks and daggers – whose superpowers work better when they are together. Cloak has dark teleportation powers, the dagger shoots the light dagger, and contrast between their abilities enhances each other’s performance.
even though Cloak and dagger Was canceled after two seasons, with both heroes making a final appearance during the third season The runway. It is almost as if when the Marvel TV shows were not associated with much of the tapestry of the MCU, they still could not help but connect.
