So let's say, although this would never happen, Marvel and DC co-create a fighting game.... what characters would you choose for the roster? Who would you start with, and who would be unlockable? When playing in "story mode" who would the bosses be?
02. Spider Man
03. Captain America
04. The Thing
06. Iron Man
07. Luke Cage
08. Black Panther
12. Iron Fist
02. Green Lantern (Hal Jordan)
04. Wonder Woman
06. Green Arrow (Oliver Queen)
11. The Atom
4. Dr. Doom
5. The Question
6. The Sentry
3. Lex Luthor
For a grand total of 34 characters. Well, your lists can be smaller (or bigger). Obviously I didn't care about power levels. I wouldn't make the game realistic at all. Wolverine would have a chance to take out Superman as well as any other. ("Speedblitz" would totally be in Supes' combo arsenal, though.)
I couldn't include every one I wanted or there'd be like, 100 characters on there....
Plus I wanted to get a variety of fighting styles in there. Every character there should work slightly differently. (Like, Bizarro has all Superman's moves, but you have to hit the combos in reverse or something....)
Also, Bizarro World and Apokalips should be arenas. As well as Asteroid M. Stark's Mansion would be an awesome Arena because you could have a little Jarvis sprite run around under the fight screaming "oh dear, the fine china!"
I like the idea of the daily Bugle offices, as you could have worker running around screaming, with jameson in the background yelling, and hundreds of bits of paperwork and computers flying everywhere............total hilarious chaos..............
I pretty much just took everyone who can hold down their own monthly solo title, except for a few who would just clash too much (who needs Hulk, She-Hulk and the Thing?) and a few who are more popular but aren't given the chance.
Iron Man (well in theory he has a monthly)
Blue Beetle (new one)
Captain Marvel (Shazam)
That's the first game. The second game would feature all villains, and a third game will be comprised more of beloved b and c list characters. Later they'd all be compiled ala Tekken Tag.
Yeah, it was hard to think of big time DC women characters. Aside from Wonder Woman, there aren't any solo women in DC really. I think it would be better to put Hawkgirl in there instead of Hawkman. The problem with most of the big female characters in DC is they're all rip-offs of the men. Supergirl, Mary Marvel, Batgirl, Huntress, etc.
I'd also add "alternate" costumes, which would actually enhance the play. Beating the game with Spider-Man would unlock a Spider-Man 2099 costume, which would actually change the fighting attributes of Spidey. He'd inflict more damage, but be a little less evasive. If you beat the game with Genis, you can get a Mar-Vell costume. A bone claw Wolverine, U.S.Agent for Cap, Ant-Man for Yellowjacket, or Wasp, whomever makes it in. Etc.
