Some video game news, plus a random scan!

Hey X-Maniacs, I figured I'd take a little breather from my schoolwork to throw a quick update out. I was initially just going to do a quick scan and leave it at that, but some pretty awesome comic book video game news came out today, so I figure I should touch on that. First off is the official announcement of Marvel vs Capcom 3... As somebody who had sunk COUNTLESS hours into Marvel vs Capcom 2 for the PS2, I've got to say that this is spectacular news! I'd still prefer if it was an all Marvel game(sorry, but I'd rather play as 50+ Marvel characters then with a bunch of Capcom characters that I had never heard about)but so long as this game is HALF as good as its predecessor, it'll definitely be a must buy for me.

Speaking of must buys, it was announced today that Talia Al Ghul and Mr. Freeze have been confirmed for Batman: Arkham Asylum 2. Freeze I can take or leave, but I'm pretty excited about Talia's inclusion, especially if it means that Ra's Al Ghul will also be appearing. Of course I am a bit nervous that Talia's inclusion could possibly lead to a Damian appearance, but I don't think DC would do that to me... Or at least they better not!

OK, video game news done, here's a random Impulse scan:From Impulse #61(June 2000).


  1. Actually my brotha, Freeze and Talia were announced yesterday via Kotaku.com but I won't mess with ya :P As for MVC3 that's cool news, especially considering The Merc with a Mouth Deadpool will be in it, although I'd much rather have Marvel vs. DC!

  2. You know I'm always at least a day or two behind with stuff JT!

    If only we'd get a Marvel vs DC game... Hell, I still wish it was a purely Marvel game. I mean really, I don't want to play as BB Hood of that damned giant Cactus... For the most part, the Capcom characters REALLY sucked!

  3. Lol yeah the only good one's are Ryu and Chun Li and a few others. Btw are you as shocked as me that Spidey's not in it?!

  4. That is a surprise... Would've thought he'd be in it. Huh... But that's just so far. 6 out of 30 revealed. Plenty of time. They'll probably put Cyclops in, eh?

    That's a weird ass scan. Is that Max Mercury? And why's he sweating so much?

  5. Well let me be the first to tell you about the new cartoon network cartoon you're sure to love.

    YOUNG JUSTICE is an all-new series produced by Warner Bros. Animation and based upon the characters from DC Comics. In YOUNG JUSTICE, being a teenager means proving yourself over and over – to peers, parents, teachers, mentors and, ultimately, to yourself. But what if you’re not just a normal teenager? What if you’re a teenage super hero? How much harder will it be to prove yourself in a world of super powers, super villains and super secrets? Are you ready to come of age in such a world? Are you ready for life or death rites of passage? Are you ready to join the ranks of the great heroes and prove you’re worthy of the Justice League? The members of Young Justice—Robin, Aqualad, Kid Flash, Superboy, Miss Martian and Artemis—are about to find out.


  6. The "cape change" of Robin has been legendary, people were upset when Dick Grayson, gave the cape to Jason Todd, but he led a great couple years as Robin. Damian is a good Robin, but the reason he wouldn't be good in the video game is because it would be less creepy, but he is a good Robin.
    Also Mr. Freeze is going to be awesome.

  7. Wait, why wouldn't Spidey be in that game? I mean, he's kind of like the Superman of Marvel. Do you know something I don't JT?

    Yep, that was indeed Max Mercury in that scan Nagash, and as for why he's sweating, it's because he's so old! The guy is pushing like 130 years old, you'd be sweating too! :p Seriously though, there was some kind of Max Mercury storyline going on around this time where he was dying or something, which is why he'd get so wasted when running.

    JT, my sister beat you to the punch! She told me about this a while back. Considering how much I loved Young Justice(it was the first DC series I'd ever read)I'm... cautiously optimistic about this show... But I'm def worried this isn't going to live up to the CB version...

  8. I saw a list at IGN, naming the characters who's shadows were in the back and I didn't see him dude, i could be wrong though.

    Ah crap, they just announced it on DCU Blog, she must have good sources haha. I'm hoping they do a good job, if it's half as good as the JLA series it should be awesome. I'm also hoping Michael Rosenbaum reprises his role as Flash/Kid Flash.

  9. I still can't imagine that there won't be a Spidey in that game, but who knows... Maybe Capcom doesn't have the rights to use Spidey. Didn't Activision do the last few Spidey games?

    I swear she told me about this like a month ago! I keep thinking she even showed me some art from the show! Who knows where she found out from...

    You know I'm not much of a TV guy, but I'll tell ya this much, I'll def go out of my way to catch at least the first few episodes of this cartoon.

  10. Hah, funny :P but nobody really cared cause he's not an interesting character? ;)

    Wait, wait, wait, hold up. Who is this Aqualad? Was expecting Garth. And does Artemis look like Arrowette?
    Hmmm, so Tim Drake in a non scalloped costume, Wally in a pretty cool Kid Flash costume (with shoulder guards), and M'gann pretty much the same.
    Conner I'm meh to…

  11. I too was wondering why Artemis looked like and apparently is Arrowette, unless Artemis isn't in that pic, and also why they made Aqualad black. I mean... why add a token black person, just pick a black superhero or don't have one.

  12. Honestly, no Spidey wouldn't bother me in the least, as I've said before, I'm def on an anti-Spidey kick.

    Yeah, I don't get the whole idea of making Garth black either. That's a head scratcher... Hell, since DC owns the character(I think), why not plug Static into that spot? He's already had his own cartoon, so that kind of seems perfect to me.

  13. That's exactly what I was thinking, that way you can show him interact with YJ and everyone's happy or whatever. If not why not use someone else, hell just de-age Vixen or use Steel's niece Natasha or something.
