Reptil seems like the perfect hero for Marvel to introduce into MCU! Here’s a near mint copy of his very first appearance in the comics!

“It was the right thing to do. Everybody was right. The reality of being a hero isn’t what you expect. It’s not always what you’d want it to be. But sometimes, it can be better.” —Reptil

Reptil is a character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. He is best known as a supporting member on The Super Hero Squad Show and a member of Avengers Academy in the comics.

Reptil first appeared in Avengers: The Initiative Featuring Reptil #1 and was created by Christos Gage and Steve Uy.

Reptil appeared as a regular character in all 39 issues of Avengers Academy from 2010 to 2013.

Reptil appeared in Avengers Arena, a series by Dennis Hopeless and Kev Walker for Marvel NOW!. Reptil reappeared as a supporting character in the 2021 one-shot King in Black: Spider-Man. The same year, he was featured in a 4-issue limited series Reptil, written by Terry Blas and pencilled by Enid Balám.

Reptil makes his animated debut in The Super Hero Squad Show, voiced by Antony Del Rio. Introduced in the episode “To Err is Superhuman”, Captain America brings him onto the Super Hero Squad as its latest member.

Throughout season one, Reptil assists the squad in collecting Infinity Fractals before Doctor Doom and his Lethal Legion. In the episode “This Al Dente Earth”, the heroes discover Reptil’s medallion is an Infinity Fractal that was sent through time. While he gave it up to rebuild the Infinity Sword, his prolonged exposure to the Fractal granted Reptil the ability to shapeshift into whole dinosaurs.

Reptil appears in the animated Christmas-themed TV special Marvel Super Hero Adventures: Frost Fight!, voiced again by Antony Del Rio. This version is a member of the Avengers Academy who is partnered with the adult Avengers during a “ride-along” program.

Reptil appears in the animated series Marvel Super Hero Adventures voiced by Jesse Inocalla.

Marvel Comics will bring former Avengers Academy student Reptil to prominence in May in his first solo limited series, with the publisher billing the dinosaur shapeshifter as its “next biggest hero”.
