Marvel Comics is an American comic book publisher. Along with DC Comics, it is one of the top two publishers that controls a majority of the market. In the mid-1980s, the Masters of the Universe comic book license transitioned from DC to Marvel. Aside from a feature article in Marvel Age 38, Marvel produced all of its Masters of the Universe material under the banner of Star Comics, the company's imprint for children's material. The first Masters of the Universe ongoing series was published by Marvel and ran for 13 issues. A one-shot adaptation of the 1987 Masters of the Universe movie was also released.
