Marvel has an extensive history that spans several decades, from the late 1930s with the comics division, to the present, with various divisions in movie, television, comics, and other entertainment.

Stan Lee is considered the face of Marvel, having started out back in the early days of the organization and becoming editor-in-chief, publisher, chairman, and currently chairman emeritus.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has enjoyed unprecedented success over the past several years. With Disney, Marvel and its various divisions, including Marvel Television and Marvel Animation, have multiple properties across entertainment, helmed and worked on by a a massive array of talent behind the scenes and in front of the camera.

These include the Avengers movies (The Avengers, Iron Man, Thor, etc.), as well as television shows like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Legion, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, The Defenders, and many, many more.

In the world of the comics, many of the storylines also stretch back for decades. There’s no shortage of superhero and supervillain relatives – from marriages, siblings, cousins, aunts and uncles, and so forth.

There are somewhat larger ones like the family of Emma Frost (played by January Jones in X-Men: First Class) and smaller ones like that of Doctor Strange (played by Benedict Cumberbatch in Doctor Strange, etc.).

This list is by no means the end-all, be-all of superhero and supervillain relatives and respective storylines within the Marvel Universe.

Juggernaut (most recently voiced by Ryan Reynolds in Deadpool 2) was originally introduced in back in the 1960s. He’s had numerous roles since then, as both villain, hero, and anti-hero.

Introduced as the abused half-brother of Xavier (Professor X), he gets his power from the Crimson Gem of Cyttorak.

Juggernaut’s original name is Cain, and due to their situation growing up, he develops a jealousy and hatred of Xavier, as he believes that Xavier is favored over him.

However, in the comics and movies, his allegiance switches back and forth.

At one point, he was aligned with Professor X, but he realized that if he continued to associate with his brother and do good deeds his power would wane, so he returned to being a villain.
