When it comes to finding out awesome things you'd never noticed before about pop culture you love, the internet is a pretty darned wonderful place - and one of the best places on it to have your mind moderately blown is Tumblr.

Now, we've already seen how Tumblr users truly get Disney, and have, accordingly, found some pretty incredible secrets hiding under its surface.

What, though, of Marvel? After all, it's about as popular a cultural phenomenon as they come, so, surely, Tumblr users must have dug up some pretty crazy (and awesome) stuff about it, too? Right?

Oh, hells yeah they have...

Here are nine of my favorites...

First up:

1. Spider-Man Isn't All There I can't unsee it. On the plus side, though - it's not CGI.

Though it probably is a mannequin...

2. Doctor Strange is Here for a Reason

And that reason is clearly to make the nerdiest joke in the world happen.

3. Captain America: The Winter Soldier is a Whole Other Sequel Entirely

Because...of course it is! How did we not see this before?

4. Black Widow Is Way Sweeter Than She Seems

Strangely, this makes a whole lot of sense. Joss, if you're reading this - keep this one going into Avengers: Age of Ultron?

5. Peter Parker Changes the World

I mean, how long was the guy using Bing for?

Seriously - does this mean The Amazing Spider-Man was actually set in 2009?

6. Something Definitely Went Wrong With Bucky

Though that wouldn't have been my first guess...

7. There's a Trend Emerging Here...

So much so, in fact, that there's a whole fan theory based on it...

8. Some Things are Too Sad to Even Think About


And, finally...

9. Iron Man has an Answer for Everything

Because...of course he does. He's Iron Man...

What do you guys think, though? Do you have any even better Tumblr-style Marvel revelations?

If so, then let us know below!
