I’ve spoken about Marvel Unlimited before on my Reading Digital Comics post. But for the uninitiated Marvel Unlimited is a streaming comics service which is basically the Netflix of Marvel Comics. It has over 17,000 comics spanning the entire back catalog of Marvel’s history.
Marvel Unlimited has three tiers of service. You can pay monthly for $9.99 per month, yearly for $69.99, or a plus membership for $99.99. I’d go through the details of which membership gets what but Marvel has already put together the following chart.
I’ve been a member of Marvel Unlimited for the past two years and this year I decided to upgrade from the normal subscription to the Marvel Unlimited Plus subscription. First let’s start with what came in the box:
- Welcome Letter and Membership Card
- Invincible Iron Man 1 Marvel Unlimited Exclusive Variant
- Agent Carter 1 Marvel Unlimited Exclusive Variant
- Captain America White 1 Marvel Unlimited Exclusive Variant
- SHIELD and SSR Pin
- Marvel Legends Marvel Unlimited Exclusive RESCUE Figure
Here are some full unboxing shots.
Here are close ups of each of the comic books along with a composite of all tree.
Here is a look at the letter / membership card, Rescue Figure and Pins.
So far I feel pretty good about getting the plus subscription over the normal annual subscription. In the past the Marvel Unlimited Variant Comics resale for 20 dollars each and last year’s Rocket figure goes for 25 on ebay. So the three comics and figure alone are worth 85 dollars. If you were to do well on selling off your Unlimited Plus items you could reasonably pay for your entire Unlimited subscription.
