You know how whenever you sit down to read a Marvel comic you get all hungers in your tum-tum? I call them the Marvel Rumbles and they happen because of all the fine cuisine featured in each comic. Insight Editions has answered the one question we’ve all been asking for years: Why isn’t there a cookbook dedicated to food which is inspired by popular storylines told across the Marvel universe? Especially when we have already Marvel cooking accessories.
Well, put your chef’s
apron cape on because the wait is over. Introducing Marvel Eat the Universe: The Official Cookbook. Because who hasn’t been knee-deep in a Hulk comic and thought “Hulk Smash….ed….Potatoes?” Or desired a literal Trash Omellete inspired by Rocket Raccoon (because raccoons eat trash)? Or how about:
Nova Space-Cop Galaxy Doughnuts
“They are essentially space cops, doing all sorts of space things thanks to the powers granted to them through the Nova Force,” says Food Network chef, Justin Warner — the book’s author. “When I was tasked with thinking about what Richard Rider would eat after a long day of being a space cop, the answer was obvious: space doughnuts.”

Phoenix Hot Chicken and Egg Oyakodon
Jean Grey getting possessed by an all-powerful space force is intense, but not as intense as these chicken wings, you guys. Other tasty diddy’s include:
- Deadpool’s Chimichangitas
- Storm’s Tournedos
- Dazzler’s Glittering Pizza Bagels
- Hulk’s Paillard Arrabiata with Purple Smashed Potatoes
- Runaways Okonomiyaki
- Green Goblin Pumpkin Bombs
According to Insight Editions, all 60 dishes will “prepare [you] to eat like a Marvel Super Hero,” which would imply that Green Goblin enjoys a nice Pumpkin Bomb every now and then. We can absolutely get behind this.
You can pre-order now and expect the book to ship out around July 28th for a cool $26.99.
