On December 27, 1996 Marvel filed for bankruptcy in U.S. Bankruptcy Court. The company was losing money hand-over-fist. Worse, it owed money (coincidentally, its highest debt, $1.7 million, was owed to Disney). Over one-third of Marvel employees were laid off. For a company that had created some of the most iconic and recognized characters the world over, the future seemed bleak. This may seem hard to believe for a company about to release Avengers: Age of Ultron, the sequel to a film that grossed over $1.5 billion, and a studio whose lowest grossing movie (Captain America: The First Avenger) still brought in $370 million worldwide. So, how did Marvel scratch and claw all the way from the bottom to the top? They risked everything.
