These 10 Marvel Comics that Need their Own Game represent an obscure area of comic books which have earned recognition on par with the likes of Iron Man and Thor. Marvel Comics has an extensive library of titles ranging from an Astonishing X-Men level of quality, to a lameness of Howard the Duck-like proportions. Unfortunately, most of these titles revolve around the same superheroes: Wolverine, Spider-Man, Hulk, etc. Most Marvel titles are mainly created to coincide with a Marvel film debut (which usually tend to be atrocious). Let the Avengers take the weekend off, because in this list of 10 Marvel Comics that Need their Own Game, we present some of the lesser known comic lines that we believe warrant their own pixelated experience.
This is probably the first time Ms. Marvel has graced Arcade Sushi without being the Cosplay of the Day. She's got the look and the Binary powers, thus Carol Danvers kicks off our list of 10 Marvel Comics that Need their Own Game.
Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.
We don't care if it looks like Jackson or Hasselhoff, but we need to play as Nick Fury. His mission objectives are: chomp on a cigar, order around some S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, and deceive a few superheroes.
Marvel Zombies vs. The Army of Darkness
That's right, nearly every Marvel superhero gets turned into the walking dead. And the only person badass enough to fight them all is horror's favorite wiseguy.
Power Man and Iron Fist: Heroes for Hire
They're two of Marvel's lesser known heroes, but that doesn't mean playing as Luke Cage or Iron Fist would be any less awesome.
We'll state the obvious, Moon Knight's premise is similar to Batman's. So we would imagine playing as him would be like playing Arkham City... but with dissociative identity disorder.
Having Sanctum Sanctorum as a central hub in Marvel: Ultimate Alliance left us hankering to actually play as comic's favorite magical neurosurgeon. Watch out Dormammu, because Doctor Strange earned his spot in our list of 10 Marvel Comics that Need their Own Game.
As with all other Marvel titles of the early '90s, we will simply act like the NES version of the Silver Surfer never happened.
X-Force is black ops team of the X-Men who are all willing to kill for the sake of the greater good. Having Archangel, Fantomex, Psylocke, Deadpool, Wolverine, X-23, Warpath and Wolfsbane all on the same team could lead to a variety of enjoyable kinds of gameplay.
From the Messiah War to his quests against Apocalypse, comic's favorite time traveler (and Deadpool's best/only friend), has huge guns and epic storylines to tell, which sound like an excellent foundation to build upon.
With its movie coming out in 2014, a Marvel title starring the Guardians of the Galaxy can be expected. But a Guardians title revolving around the Annihilation: Conquest storyline or any other major cosmetic threat fighting against Rocket Raccoon, Groot and the rest of the squad would be amazing. Similar to X-Force, the diversity of the group builds lots of potential for a variety of gameplay mechanics, which is why the Guardians of the Galaxy tops our list of 10 Marvel Comics that Need their Own Game.
