You Won’t Believe Some Of These Dropped Superhero Origin Stories

Published

on

Every comic book character has an insane origin story. Whether it’s a spider bite or a nuclear explosion, it aids in the character’s growth. As expected, some characters almost had bizarre beginnings. We take a look at some origin stories that were thankfully swapped at the last minute.

It’s All Relative

Everyone knows the history between Wolverine and Sabertooth. The sworn enemies would’ve been much more if Chris Claremont and John Byrne had their way. Both men wanted to reveal that Sabertooth was Wolverine’s biological father. While it never happened, the thought of being related was seen in other media. In X-Men Origins: Wolverine, both men were half-brothers.

A Woman Scorned?

Venom has been a constant thorn in Spider-Man’s side for years. If Venom creator David Michelinie had his way, the character would’ve had a darker origin. Venom was going to be a pregnant woman that loses her kid due to a taxi accident. The accident was caused due to the driver being distracted by Spider-Man. That wasn’t the only loss for the lady. Her husband, who went to grab said taxi, also gets killed in the accident.

Role Change For May

Peter Parker and Aunt May have one of the tightest relationships in Marvel Comics. The landscape nearly changed with the release of 2003’s Trouble. This teen romance miniseries reveals that Aunt May is secretly Parker’s mother. Spider-Man fans were extremely irate with them possible changing Parker’ origin story. While Trouble was meant to be canon, Marvel decided to step away from it.

Scientist Of Steel

Superman is arguably one of the biggest comic book character of all time. When the character was being created, he wasn’t mean to be the hero. In 1933, Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster delivered the short story The Reign of the Superman. In this tale, Superman was a scientist that uses his powers for evil.

Attack Of The Clone

Gambit’s origin story involves him being kidnapped at a young age and raised by the Thieves Guild. Chris Claremont originally wanted Gambit to be a clone of Mister Sinister. In order to win the heart of Rogue, Sinister would’ve created Gambit to complete the mission. This way, Sinister would have a way to attack the X-Men from within.
