    Marvel's Behind the Mask will feature guests from across

    Morales, Ms. Marvel, Luke Cage, the X-Men, Captain Marvel, and
    many other characters in the Marvel Universe, highlighting
    Marvel's impact on pop culture and media.

    The official synopsis for the documentary special reads: "From
    the very inception of comic books, secret identities have been
    an integral part of both Super Heroes and Villains leading
    "normal" lives. But it's the characters beneath that resonate
    within us across generations of fans. Since the advent of the
    Marvel Age of Comics in the early 1960s, Marvel's writers and
    artists have used the notion of identities to examine the
    evolving concept of equal rights. These legendary Marvel
    creations and stories have not only reflected the world outside
    our window - they have become a reflection of our own
    identities and who we truly are."

    The documentary is directed by Michael Jacobs. It is produced
    by Chris Gary and Ryan Simon for Tarmac Creative and Strike
    Anywhere. Joe Quesada, Shane Rahmani, Stephen Wacker, John
    Cerilli, Harry Go, and Sarah Amos of Marvel New Media are
    executive producing.
