Over the Summer we mentioned that Avengers writer Brian Michael Bendis would be working on a new project, making the jump from writing comics to writing video games in an all new Marvel MMO that would be incorporating a big chunk of the Marvel Universe. Today we got a little bit more detail about the upcoming game including a reveal of the game's name change as well as the design for Spider-Man's character.

The game, which would have been titled 'Marvel Universe,' was recently renamed 'Marvel Heroes,' and Gazillion Entertainment, the game's developers, uncovered the official logo for the upcoming game. According to a previous report, the game will feature many of Marvel's biggest names including Storm, Ms. Marvel, Captain America, Spider-Man and many more -- however, the only official character design for the project was uncovered today, which you can check out above. What do you think of an all new Marvel MMO? Have you played 'Marvel Superhero Squad,' also developed by Gazillion Entertainment?

I thought there has been official art revealed? Or is it not official anymore because of the name change?

#11 Posted by Baddamdog (2223 posts) - - Show Bio

Personally I can't wait and I didn't get DCO because you couldn't play as the characters, nowadays I think there's too much emphasis on play as your own character, find a balance, like Soul Calibur.

P.s. if Psylocke isn't in this game I'll screw

@moywar700: @Daveyo520: @Grim:

They were working on a Marvel MMO, but eventually dropped the marvel and the game became Chapions Online. Now they're back to doing it again

#17 Posted by Daveyo520 (2447 posts) - - Show Bio

They really need to be Free2Play from the start. MMOs fail any other way these days and it will go free to play eventually if it is paid for monthly at the start.

Design? He looks just like usual...

@Baddamdog: You can play as Dc characters in DCUO just not for everything only in the arena

#21 Posted by Mrfuzzynutz (996 posts) - - Show Bio

Balls to this, they need to go out and hire the guys who did the DCUO trailer, because I am sure a sizeable amount of users heard about/ got interested in/purchased based on the trailer alone

My guess is they don't want to be accused of trying to copy to DC Universe Online.

Now, this Marvel should use MU instead of MH.

#24 Posted by frozenedge (1155 posts) - - Show Bio

Marvel Heroes sounds better to me. They probably changed it because they didn't want to seem to similar to DC Universe

#25 Posted by cmaprice (809 posts) - - Show Bio

I just hope it doesn't work like SHSO in the sense of alternate costumes being completely different characters. I mean, in some respects it makes sense, like Green Goblin and Iron Patriot or Penance and Speedball -- Such examples if they ever co-opted the game would have to be programmed differently. But if Regular and FF Spidey or Elektra and Pure Elektra were to count as different characters, I'd call shenanigans.

Didn't the last Marvel MMO become Champions Online?

#27 Posted by SeanNOLA (75 posts) - - Show Bio

@PrinceIMC: Yes, and that's where a lot of this "hasn't this been in development for 8 years" confusion is coming from. Marvel didn't like the way Champions was being handled, the superhero MMO market was already saturated, and going head-to-head with DCUO wasn't going to be good for anyone, so they took the license back and Champions Online was released with vanilla heroes. Jump forward a few years and Gazillion has shown a great deal of promise with Super Hero Squad Online, so it only makes sense that Marvel would try and grab that grown-up market with a similarly structured game with (hopefully) more challenging gameplay.

Marvel seems a little late to the MMO party, and just because DC is there, doesn't mean Marvel should attend too. Spider-Man looks bad btw. And who cares about this game? It was scrapped before for a reason. Shouldn't have resurrected this idea

#29 Posted by Mega_spidey01 (3078 posts) - - Show Bio

looks cool, when its coming out?

#30 Posted by The_Kid_Lantern (59 posts) - - Show Bio

If that's what Wolverine looks like in-game they need to cut about a third of the length off of his claws. I'm not too impressed with the designs....

The head is kind of wierd but everything else is not bad

#32 Posted by maxicere (936 posts) - - Show Bio

I need this game noooowwww!! Also play Marvel superhero Squad all days!

#33 Posted by Cafeterialoca (1503 posts) - - Show Bio

Um...no offense, but why didn't you post the other character models of Deadpool, Captain America, Thor, Cable, and so on?

I mean, why is Spider-Man the only one to make all this news?

#34 Posted by Danial79 (2336 posts) - - Show Bio

I've been following the game's Tumblr for some time now and I really like the designs they're going with. I'm not really into MMOs though. I'd prefer someone just creating a decent single player superhero game featuring these characters. Surely Batman isn't the only character who deserves one.

#35 Posted by BritishMonkey (321 posts) - - Show Bio

i really can't wait to see what this is like and play it

#36 Posted by zombietag (1491 posts) - - Show Bio

looks like... spider-man

#37 Posted by ZZoMBiE13 (676 posts) - - Show Bio

Sweet. I thought this game was cancelled. I enjoyed DCUO, at least as much as I can enjoy any MMO. It will be interesting to see how a Marvel MMO plays out.

I'm kinda curious if this is what, we, as comic fans really want. Do we want a bland Marvel MMO which is what I think this might shape up to be. Which is just my opinion. Or would you guys like to see an Ultimate Alliance reboot with massive amounts of character set in it's own universe which could be taken online? Lemme know, cuz I'm genuinely curious!!

#41 Posted by Lt_Cmdr_Kicker (71 posts) - - Show Bio

Honestly, I'm not impressed with anything Marvel has been putting out lately.. It's depressing really.

#42 Posted by Winken Goodfellow (6 posts) - - Show Bio

Wolverine's claws are huge there... how would he bend his arms when they're sheathed?

#43 Posted by NYStreets09e (159 posts) - - Show Bio

i guess its to early to make harsh derision, so ill wait as long as they have Elektra I'm happy :-)

#44 Posted by BigTPotts (123 posts) - - Show Bio

#46 Posted by Iron Fist Angel (229 posts) - - Show Bio

Hopefully they are taking some extra time to stress test whatever servers they're planning on using for this. DCUO was an off-and-on nightmare for the first nine months of the game (to the point where I eventually gave up on it). Anything new broke tons of pre-existing stuff, and the servers crashed two or three times a night.

#49 Posted by Shazam78 (137 posts) - - Show Bio

So with DCUO already out will fanboys be shouting I'm a Marvel and I'm a DC?

whats the point of this game if everyone else is spiderman, deadpool and wolverine?
