An Infographic Mapping Out Over 120 Fictional U.S. Businesses Found Within the Marvel Universe

Mapping Marvel Businesses is a detailed infographic by the creative team at Empire Flippers that maps out over 120 of the fictional U.S. businesses found within the Marvel Universe.

Other than the slightly annoying issue of having super villains constantly trying to destroy humanity, how cool would it be live in the Marvel Universe? Not only would superpowers be real, but there would still be awesome places to shop, eat, and have some fun.

Marvel has done an incredible job creating a vast, realistic and relatable world for us. And the minutely detailed commercial segment is no different. If you’re a comic book buff, you’ve probably heard of many of these companies and establishments, but do you know where they are located?
