The Oldest MCU Characters Based On Their First Comics Appearance

The Marvel Cinematic Universe may not to be too long in the tooth yet, but its characters have been around for a little longer than 15 minutes. In fact, the MCU features a few of the oldest characters in comic book history.

What's particularly interesting to note is how many of these characters have stayed the same or evolved from their first appearance. A hero like Vision is drastically different from his original debut, while someone like Iron Man hasn't strayed too far from how he was first presented to readers. With that said, let's take a look at the oldest characters in Marvel history and when they made their official debuts.
