If taking over the superhero genre on the big screen and TV wasn't enough, the folks at Marvel have decided to take your money on yet another medium - video games.
For those who were but a dirty thought in their parents' minds in the early 2000s, Marvel's past forays in the industry have been mostly hit-or-miss. While games like Spider-Man 2 and X-Men Legends made people ecstatic to expose their underwear in areas for passersby to see, game adaptations of movies like Iron Man and Hulk would remind players that the underwear they were wearing has a skid mark the size of the Hulk's left buttock.
Nevertheless, Marvel seems to have bounced back from its losses over those horrible movies and video games (Iron Man 3 and Thor 2 come to mind), as it has partnered with Square Enix for a span of years in order to bring scantily-clad muscle-bound men and women to your gaming platform of choice... starting with an Avengers project.
While the title still doesn't have a finalized name, the upcoming game featuring Earth's most powerful fraternity DOES have a trailer...
... which looks like the inside of an abusive child's toy box. Note the broken glasses, rubble, and expertly amputated arm of an action figure.
Developed by Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal, the game will feature an original storyline and more spandex than your parents' room the night they got married. While their past games like Tomb Raider feature vulnerable protagonists, one can only imagine what kind of torture the developers have in store for their future projects, such as the inevitable Groot video game.
