Marvel Vs. D.C. (If there was one?)
« on: November 27, 2011, 07:53pm »
I thought this could be fun. If there were to ever be a Marvel vs DC game (Which most likely will never happen) What characters would you think would be in it?

Put a character for both Marvel universe and DC universe, and then explain why they both should be featured in the game and the unique things they could do. If you want even try to make the duo a good versus pair!

To save space and not make an enormous post, I put my selections in a quote format

From DC:

Quote
Raven: Interesting storyline (the whole hero thing even though her dad trigon is a demon) Personality would call for interesting dialogue (the whole withdrawn thing because emotions govern powers)  Cool variety of powers (constructs, empathy, telepathy, phasing, astral energy)  Also cool costume.

Green lantern: Awesome imaginative/unique powers, many possibilities for skins since there are many different green lantern characters

Superman: Iconic character with good powerset

Martian Manhunter:  Cool background story, Vulneralability to fire would make interesting gameplay, Awesome powers (density shifting, morphing, strength, telepathy)

Saturn girl:  Female character, telepathy

Batman: Iconic, Storyline is interesting along with personality, uses weapons, so it gives people a tech character

Hawkgirl: Interesting costume, would be fun to use mace to smash things with

Vixen: Female, cool abilities (mystic gem that allows her to take on the abilities of different animals)

Black Canary: canary cry power is cool, also good  female brawler

Zatara:  Magical character

Zatana: father daughter duo team bonus, also magical character, could maybe make use of not being able to use abilities when she can't talk as a weakness

Secret: Interesting background, and cool powers, and maybe the cause of her death in relation to brother could make a awesome addition to storyline and boss fight with Harm.

Aqualad or Aquaman: cool powers in the sense of water hasn't really been used in a game so it would provide a unique set of powers.

Marvel characters:

Quote
Nightcrawler: Awesome powers and martial artist.

Emma Frost:  Telepathy and diamond form gives her a good combination of powers and her past with the hellfire club would give the story an interesting location for a battle or two.

Wasp:  New and unique set of powers like aquaman/lad, female character

Cloak and dagger: duo as one character with them switching off for powers, kind-of like sheik and zelda for the SSB game, Cool powers

Iceman:  Classic, good powers

Storm: Classic has wide array of potential powers

Boom Boom: Interesting powers providing cool visual effects

Stepford Cuckoos:  interesting personality conflicts, telepathy

Legion:  Multiple personality disorder would add some spice to the storyline, and Wide array of powers

Crystal:  Cool powers and addition of earth water and wind powers would give her uniqueness

Deadpool:  Funny personality and weapons specialist for people who like those abilities

Gambit:  fun powers

Rogue:  Cool powers, maybe she can absorb powers of people she defeated in a level (power absorbed would be like either she gets a blast power, a defensive power, or a melee power from them)

Songbird:  Fun Unique powers with also a wrestler's background making her a good brawler also

Of course there would be many more from both DC and Marvel, but I think that these characters would bring a unique aspect and some are just really fun

actually a Marvel vs DC game could happen if Yoshinori Ono has his way

http://videogames.cosmicbooknews.com/content/capcom-producer-yoshinori-ono-wants-marvel-vs-dc-video-game

licensing will be a problem though

and give me Power Girl and Songbird and they can put any character in the game and they will still have my money

I know someone made a MUGEN version of Marvel vs DC, which was fun. But as long as Rogue and Wonder Woman are on it, I'd be happy. Love watching them battle it out.

LOL Thanks.  That would be awesome to work on a game like that.  For me I chose people that I thought were fun, unique, would add something interesting to the storyline (background of the character, personality, etc), also I tried to incorporate more of a balance of male and female.  And I tried breaking away from characters that I thought are over used or to me didn't add anything fun to the story or didn't have very imaginative powers, for instance I didn't include characters like:

Wolverine - (overused period, but also not many good powers from a slice and dice character)
Spidey - (overused also like wolverine, and you can't expand much on powers)
Jean grey - (I love her but she is too much drama)
Cyclops - (shoots eyes beams, can't really elaborate much on powers there)
The Flash - (I like the character, but superspeed doesn't lend itself to many powers)

and others as well.

This is my roster! As much as I love characters like Vision, Songbird, Polaris, etc. I'm going with a roster that makes the most sense. The top A-List heroes and villains from both universes. I just can't imagine the game developers giving up Spidey or Batman for Squirrel Girl and Plastic Man lol.

Aquman - unique with ocean/water powers
Batman - must have! one of the big three
Black Canary - female martial artist with sonic scream. what else?
Captain Marvel - classic hero. once more popular than Superman
Catwoman - iconic femme fatale. fun powerset
Darkseid - BIG villain of the DC universe
Deathstroke - "Original" Deadpool with stealthy powerset
Flash - very iconic and superspeed grants a unique powerset
Green Arrow - unique powerset with bow and arrow
Green Lantern - very iconic and goes well with the recent movie
Hawkgirl - sort of an unexpected character but fun to use
Joker - must have villain as Batman's archenemy!
Lex Luthor - must have villain as Superman's archenemy!
Nightwing - represents Batman world. Fan-favorite
Robin - pretty much save as Nightwing. But more iconic!
Sinestro - opposite of Green Lantern. Similar but also unique moves
Supergirl - girl power! Can have different style than Superman
Superman - must have! one of the big three
Wonder Woman - must have! one of the big three

Captain America - iconic hero of Marvel. Goes with Cap and Avengers movies
Daredevil - fan-favorite of Marvel characters. Needs more promotion
Deadpool - another biggie for Marvel. Very popular in recent years!
Doctor Doom - Marvel's major villain. He is another must-have
Doctor Strange - represents magic as the Sorceror Supreme
Green Goblin - one of Spidey's archenemies. Very fun powerset
Hulk - iconic hero of Marvel. Big, green, gamma bruiser
Iron Man - iconic hero of Marvel. Especially big from his movies
Magneto - another big villain of Marvel. Must-have for the X-Men
Ms. Marvel - girl power! Female tank and needs more promotion
Phoenix - fan-favorite for Marvel. Psychic and fire powers
Silver Surfer - needs a cosmic hero and Surfer fits best
Spider-Man - must have! Marvel's biggest character
Storm - most popular heroine for Marvel. Unique powerset
Thanos - BIG villain of the Marvel universe
Thor - pretty big character. Thor and Avengers movies help
Venom - another of Spidey's archenemies. Fan-favorite
Wolverine - 2nd to Spidey. Yet another must-have!

You know what's fun? Most of the characters you have wouldn't put in a game would be included if this game would be ever done, due to the fact, that they could sell the game easier with these :D Plus some others too, like Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk, Thor. So characters, who had their own movies would totally make the cut for a game like this :D

I like marvelfan's list. I'd only have nigtwing as an alternate costume for robin and have Martian Manhunter instead. I'd also replace Supergirl for Zatanna.

Lol I completely forgot those two! I'm not a big DC expert so not suprised I forgot Zatanna but I remember Martian Manhunter from the Justice League show. Totally weird that I forgot him.

You know what's fun? Most of the characters you have wouldn't put in a game would be included if this game would be ever done, due to the fact, that they could sell the game easier with these :D Plus some others too, like Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk, Thor. So characters, who had their own movies would totally make the cut for a game like this :D

I know that those characters are sellers, and I feel that that is something unfortunate, because other cool characters with cool backgrounds and interesting powers would never get used.  For instance in my list I included characters like secret, vixen, and legion.  Those 3 I think are really unique but not really mentioned a whole lot.  But I only learned about Legion from the episode in the x-men evolution series, and I first saw vixen in the JL:U series, and also secret was just featured on the young justice series, and all of them had something interesting about them, but they don't seem to get much attention.

I'm not much of a comic book person myself.  I like watching the shows and movies because for me it is easy to find a start to end sequence, in the sense that you can start a show from episode 1 and finish with the last episode, and movies you watch the movie from start to finish, with comics I think that it would be hard to find a place to start, or even where to start since there are so many universes and many different lines that intersect with each other.  So my knowledge comes from movies and shows, and from characters that I research using the internet, which  to some may not be a sufficient amount of knowledge. 

Also I find it interesting that in your list of others that would definitely be in the game (Ironman, Hulk, Capt. America, and Thor) were all male including the ones you said that I wouldn't put in that would be in all but 1 was male.  In my list I included mostly a mixed gender, but many of the superhero games have mostly male heroes.  In my opinion (keyword opinion) a lot of the women have better powers that I think would be more fun to play as. 

I think though that DC incorporates males and females more equally than marvel (at least with featuring them) or maybe that's just what I think.

Also just to note my list consists of people I think would be fun to play as, I didn't include villians (exept when I talked about story line like raven's dad trigon, emma frost's past with the inner circle, and secret's brother Harm as a boss fight).  I also didn't include NPC's either.

Well, if you look at it, I named the characters, who had their movies, but you originally didn't name them. Of course, as most comic geeks, I have my own favourites of Marvel women, but still, if any kind of Marvel and DC game would be made, I would be the happiest, if it would be something like MUA, so that I could go around teaming with Deadpool, Nightwing (Dick Grayson is by far the coolest character, with the Robin origin, in my opinion), Batman (childhood favourite because of his mask :D ) and I think Powergirl.

That's kind-of what I am saying also.  Movies tend to be about the guy heroes with the female heroes either being support, weak, or not there at all.  Look at movies like fantastic four, I really love the team and I love sue, and I love how Jessica Alba portrayed the character, but she got nosebleeds all the time and was a weaker character also movies like batman movies, bat woman I think appeared in one of the movies, the one with poison ivy and she wasn't that big of a character there if my memory is correct.  Very few movies revolve around the female hero.  I do feel that everyone should have their own opinion, I mean let face it if people didn't have differing opinions, people as a whole wouldn't grow and life would be pretty boring.  I also agree that Robin/nightwing would be cool, but to me I wanted to make my list fairly consolidated and even and to me I had to choose between batman and robin and for me I'd choose batman.  Also Powergirl would have been cool, but she shares pretty much the same abilities as superman, and again I'd rather go with superman than powergirl, plus having superman balanced out my ratio of women and men better in my roster.
