Chinese internet portal and gaming company NetEase has reached a collaboration agreement with Disney and China International Comics and Games Expo (CCG EXPO) allowing them to publish 12 Marvel comics on NetEase’s digital comic platform, according to a report by ifanr (in Chinese).

Comics introduced on the platform include Guardians of the Galaxy, Amazing Spider-Man, The Avengers, Dr. Strange, Captain America: Steve Rogers, Civil War, Iron Man, and more. Right now, the most popular title is Civil War.

The two sides have also announced that they are developing a top-secret superhero from China. The aim is to create a modern Chinese superhero based on Marvel’s elements with inspiration from modern China. So far Marvel has only featured Chinese characters as supporting characters or as villains, such as the Mandarin from Iron Man.
