Oh, Marvel. Marvel, Marvel, Marvel. What don’t we love about you? Well, your movie-related video games, for one. While your comic books, feature films, and even those old hologram cards of yours are the shit, you have a pretty sketchy track record when it comes to taking those same characters from the big screen and putting them on the PlayStation or Xbox. We mean, besides Spiderman 2, everything else you’ve given us has either been mediocre at best (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Ghost Rider), or outright garbage (Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, Iron Man, Blade, etc). And with this week's Thor looking like something between the two, we’re not going to get our hopes up anytime soon.
But that doesn’t mean that good Marvel games don’t exist. In fact, lots of them do—well, at least 10 of them do. Here, then, are the 10 best Marvel games that have earned our quarters and orders over the years, from beat-’em-ups to fighting games to...beat-’em-ups. Hey Stan Lee, can we get an "Excelsior!"?
