Iron Man and Five Marvel Characters Who Need Their Own (Good) Video Games

Iron Man
Iron Man and Iron Fist!

I was ecstatic when I heard the news from Comic Con that Marvel notorious ‘merc with a mouth’ was getting his own video game. Usually developers are a little skeptic about spending a lot of time and money on a character that is basically unknown to anyone outside comic nerd circle.

Seeing Deadpool get his own game (and a good looking one at that) made me start to think about the possibilities ahead. It’s something that’s been on my mind for a long time. Wolverine’s solo film was…a flop, but I really liked the video game adaptation. It had a lot of really cool aspects to it and fit Wolverine perfectly. My point here is that these games CAN work. I mean, if the gaming community can all hold an out of shape plumber and a hedgehog as their greatest video game characters of all time, I’m sure they could easily adjust to a comic book character they’ve never seen before.

With that in mind, I’m sending a message to the board of shadowy video game figures that THESE characters deserve their own title…
