@Soldier zero: Right now, Doom is a half witted idiot. His intelligence is diminished from World War Hulks. He admitted it in FF when Valeria noticed.

What I think is going to be the most interesting is when the Council finds about about 616 Doom, and 616 Doom finds out about 'The Hole' where the Council keeps all their lobotomized Doom's from alternate universes. That's where things are going to get really interesting.

@frogjitsu: I always like stories more than marketing ploys. All my favorite Marvel books are the $2.99 price point. I hope Johnny stays gone a while to, or maybe even indefinitely. I still get the gut feeling he's not dead and he'll show up later, somehow corrupted by Annihilus and as an enemy of the Four.

@Roxanne Starr: @Jotham: I've actually read real, critical reviews claiming the Lion King is indeed racist. Many have claimed that the hyenas represented minorities (one of which was voiced by Whoopi Goldberg (black), another by Cheech Marin (Latin), another mentally ill) and that they were the lower society and turned everything into a slum once they were allowed to take control with Scar.  
 
Not to mention the portrayal of women as subservient... 
 
Enjoy!

As a huge fan of the Capcom fighting games of the style (I remember how awesome Marvel Super Heroes was in the arcade), I've been waiting ten years for this.  
 
Now, I've only played it for about 15 minutes but here I my thoughts based on the previous games. 
 
It seems watered down to me. I feel like it's less dynamic having only three attack buttons instead of the six I grew accustomed to. I find the 'special attack' button worthless except for the new air combo system. Otherwise, I used to have no problem remembering the specific knock up move for all 56 characters in MvC2. Taking the attack buttons down to three means there are no punch and kick buttons, which have been standard since the beginning of time with Capcom fighting games.  I sure confuses special moves that have been unchanged for decades. 
 
I'm not sure why they changed it, I think they are going for bigger, easier combos to freshen the game up for a newer audience.  
 
I'm sure I'll get used to it and it will be loads of fun, but I don't know if I'll ever get over the loss of LP, MP, HP & LK, MK, HK :( 
 
My first gaming system was an Atari. It had one button. I've grow with my systems over the years, and they just keep adding more and more buttons and combinations to make the games have more functions. I don't know why less is better in this case. I have two buttons on my control that are not necessary in a fighting game? Maybe I'm just old..... even more :(

My shop keeps them all in their computer. Ever now and then I ask them to print it up, write my changes on it and have them revise it. I'm sure this day and age, most places are this accommodating.
