Big 3

#1 Posted by Alpha (7331 posts) - - Show Bio

If Superman, Batman and Wonderwoman are DC's big 3, who would be Marvel's?

#2 Posted by Pania (1759 posts) - - Show Bio

Spider Man, Wolverine, and Captian America.

Anyone who saw Marvel Ultimate Alliance and their CG hero bias would know that it is Spider-Man, Wolverine, and Captain America.

  • chuckle * Actually, I've never played it (looks cool tho'). I was just thinking of the three most universally recognizable Marvel characters.

In terms of picking popular character? I wouldn't be surprised.

Oh, well then, we still agree. By the way, the CG's are VERY biased.

Just like I wasn't surprised in X-Men Legends II, X-Men Legends, and now this. I must admit, I'm speaking out of "Storm" anger. She's one of the most recognized heroines of African decent or any ethnicity. But, for some reason, the CG's never show her doing anything if they show her at all. I mean sure, she has a LOT of speaking lines in the in-game stuff. But, CG is when you see your favorite characters become as real as it gets. I'm just mad that they haven't given her SOMETHING. But, if they make a second, all wrongs can be made right. Either that or I'll just glare at the screen with hatred. P.S. Why was Elektra on the cover?

Probably because they felt they had to have some chick on the cover and Elektra has a movie and is "more recognizable" to the non-comic book reading populace. Yeah, it sucks.

I frankly wish they would stop marketing stuff to the non-comic book reading populace. Movies, games, whathave you. It usually just ends up watered down and sucking. Just make the thing for the fans and let the rest of the world find out what it's about for real.

Words that bring a tear to my eye! LOL If the cover was REALLY made for fans, then it would have either Storm, or Invisible Woman on there. Considering the fact that they are the most powerful (and might I mention fun?) heroines in the game.

Agreed, I was surprised when I saw Elektra on the cover. Ororo and Sue are much powerful and far better developed characters, as well as being much better known in the comic fanbase. They are Marvel's female archetypes.

Well, in light of recent events, I'd say Iron Man, Hulk, and Spidey/Wolverine

What I really didn't like is that there wasn't enough female representation. Even when Ultimate Alliance gold came out none of the new characters where females. Were was Jean Grey, Monica Rambeau, Polaris, Psylocke. I would have liked to have seen Cloak and Dagger in there or at least make a cameo.

Jean appeared in the Game, just not playable. She-Hulk should have been playable:P

I'm talking about playable. Nightcrawler was playable and so was Doctor Doom. Gamers should have been able to control her. Yeah She Hulk would have been a good addition too. "
Yeah, I guess that is true. Guess we can hope for more in the second one.

Sabretooth. Why did Jeph Loeb kill him? Does he think he's "cool" for doing it?

I would say marvel"s big three are spider-man,wolverine and the hulk.Both spider-man and the hulk have had their own tv series before any of the marvel movies came out...there are tons and tons of merchandise decoted to those two and woverine is the flagship x-man you think x-men ya imediatley think wolverine.

#23 Posted by gambit_1972 (21 posts) - - Show Bio

Thats true...tons of them,Thor,Capatain America,Iron Man...everyone has their favorites but marvel backs the ones that make them the most money.

#24 Posted by StrongestOneThereIs (6490 posts) - - Show Bio

If you are talking about their history together 
How they work as a team and the respect they have for one another 
and how the other heroes see them 
 
It's definitely 
 

Thor, Shellhead & Cap

But you have to look at their relationship 
Hulk may have started with those two 
but he never regard them as friends

I didn't make the thread 
but if he is talking about Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman 
they are considered the Big 3 for more than just power 
it's their dynamic together 
 
I could put any 3 together  
but how would the rest of the Marvel Heros community feel about them? 
Do they look up to them? 
Only Thor, Cap and Iron Man ever had that form of respect from all the other heroes 
 
Most find Wolverine to be as bad as the bad guys 
same goes for the Hulk 
Spiderman is a clown to most of them
