Following the success of Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl and the recent ending of Smash. Disney decide they want to get in on the action. But they're a little hesitant to crossover their mainline characters.

Luckily, they do just happen to own a brand full of recognizable characters, who have no problems fighting each other, and that just happens to be one of the biggest brands in the world.

That's right. They're making a platform fighter featuring characters from across the Marvel universe.

And they want your help.

Roster:
Our roster will contain 38 characters. We will being including a total of 8 characters in the first reveal trailer at E3. These will be:

Captain America:
  • Franchise: Captain America / Avengers
  • First Appearance: Captain America Comics #1 (1941)
  • Moves:
    Neutral Special: Mighty Shield - Captain America throws his shield. Usually, it will bounce right back to him, much like Link's boomerang. (if it doesn't connect with him, it will still appear in his hand moments later) Up Special: Stars and Stripes - basically a Shoryuken, holding his shield in front of him
    Side Special: Charging Star - holding his shield in front of him, Captain America charges forward.
    Down Special: Retaliation - Captain America stands his ground, holding his shield in front of him in a different pose than his guard. If he's attacked, he counters it with a punch to the face like his first comic cover where he punched Hitler.
    Ultimate Attack: River of Truth - an extended melee combo with the punches, kicks, and shield smacks flowing smoothly into each other, using a variety of fighting styles that Cap has picked up over the years. - Megadoomer Megadoomer
Iron Man:
  • Franchise: Iron Man / Avengers
  • First Appearance: Tales of Suspense #39 (1963)
  • Moves:
    Neutral Special: Unibeam - Iron Man fires a laser from the chest of his armour. This can be held to charge it up, increasing the range and power. Up Special: Rocket Uppercut - a pretty bog-standard Shoryuken, assisted by rockets in his armour
    Side Special: Jet Booster - using his jet boots, Iron Man launches himself forwards, with an aura surrounding him.
    Down Special: Smart Bomb - Iron Man launches some bombs from shoulder-mounted cannons, which act similarly to how they do in the Marvel vs. Capcom games
    Ultimate Attack: House Party - Iron Man launches out a missile, and whoever is caught in the explosion is dazed as it transitions into a cutscene super. Dozens of remote-controlled Iron Man suits fly in, ganging up on the opponent(s) before Tony flies in piloting the Hulkbuster Armour, firing a massive repulsor blast at the opponent(s). - Megadoomer Megadoomer
Spider-Man:
  • Franchise: Spider-Man
  • First Appearance: Amazing Fantasy #15 (1962)
  • Moves:
    Neutral Special: Web Ball - Spider-Man fires a ball of webbing, which stuns opponents for a bit longer than other projectiles to leave them open for his regular attacks. Up Special: Web Line - Spidey shoots a string of webs upwards. It acts as a tether recovery, or if it hits an airborne enemy, Spider-Man pulls himself up to the opponent, leaping off of them to get some extra height.
    Side Special: Quick Zip - shooting a web forward, Spider-Man sling-shots straight ahead, giving him lots of mobility but not dealing much damage.
    Down Special: Spider-Drone - Spider-Man places a Spider-Drone on the ground, which digs its legs in. If anyone gets close enough to it, it will fire an electrical blast to stun and damage the target before self-destructing. However, the blast has a short charge-up time before it fires, and attacking the drone will destroy it. Much like Snake's C4 in Smash, Spider-Man can only have one drone active at once.
    Ultimate Attack: Sticky Situation - leaping into the air, Spider-Man fires webs in all directions, with any character who's hit by them getting caught in place. After he's fired enough webs, he grabs on to the individual strands and pulls them together into one massive ball, slamming it (and anyone caught in the webs) into the ground and sending the trapped fighters flying.
Wolverine:
  • Franchise: X-Men
  • First Appearance: Incredible Hulk #181 (1974)
  • Moves:
    Neutral Special: X Slash - Wolverine slashes his claws in an X motion, starting high and going low. This move can be charged, and deals extra damage to shields/guarding opponents.Up Special: Tornado Claw - Wolverine spins with his claws extended, becoming a human (er, mutant) drill as he launches into the air.
    Side Special: Berserker Barrage - Wolverine dashes forward, swinging his claws in front of him.
    Down Special: Adamantium Assault - Wolverine holds his arms out, spinning like Incineroar's Darkest Lariat. This has more range and does more damage than Tornado Claw, though it doesn't provide any recovery.
    Ultimate Attack: The Best There Is - unusually, this ultimate move acts as a counter. As a result, it deals a bit more damage than other ultimate moves, though it can be negated by grabbing Wolverine or waiting it out, and he can only target one person at a time. If the opponent hits Wolverine, it transitions to a cutscene where he's knocked back. Wiping his chin, he says something like "Okay, bub - you've taken your best shot. Now it's my turn!" before lunging at the opponent and stabbing at them repeatedly and viciously from the opponent's first person perspective. The brutality of his strikes are left to the imagination.
Namor:
  • Franchise: Sub Mariner / Fantastic Four
  • First Appearance: Marvel Comics #1 (1939)
  • Moves: TBA

  • First Appearance: The Fantastic Four #5 (1962)

Questions and Answers

Is this based on the MCU?

A: Nope. Like games such as Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3. This game is based in a comic inspired universe, but the MCU will influence some jobs and there is a possibly for alternative costumes.

Guest Characters?
A: None are planned for the base roster. But there is a possiblty should we reach DLC.

When will this thread update?
Updates may be semi infrequent as I an currently looking for a job, but I will try to keep them frequent. Players will have about 24 hours for each job. But that time can be extended.

And without further ado, our first two jobs.

Job 1:

Submit a Character.

A pretty basic one to start with. This can be anyone from across the Marvel universe. But since we're early in I recomend that this is an iconic and popular character. We can get to the weirdos later. Say who the character is, describe why they deserve to be in, and give us some of their moveset potential.


Job 2:

Submit a Battlefield style stage:


We will be choosing our first stage! This will be our Battlefield equivalent. This can be any location from across the Marvel universe.

Job #1: Loki
1634486111581.png

Loki is here to solve many problems immediately, like "why are the heroes fighting each other," (possible manipulation by Loki), "the game so far doesn't have many villains" (we only have 4 fighters so far, but okay here ya go), and "why don't we have any magical characters" (again, we're early in but here ya go). Plus, Loki is a popular and well-liked character and he even got his own show proving Disney also has high interests in the character.

Loki has great moveset potential in having superhuman abilities, while having ice manipulation, Illusions, and of course his Scepter, among many others.

To get us started

Hulk

It's the Hulk. He really belongs in this game, as one of Marvel's most iconic characters. So far our roster doesn't really have any heavys. He would be hard hitting character.

Job 1: Magneto

Magneto is the main villain of the X-Men series. He would fight by floating around and throwing pieces of metal.

Job 2: The Multiverse

This is partly based on the What If show but also the cosmic side of marvel in general. Basically, you play on a simple battlefield layout in front of a bunch of crystals, with The Watcher in the background. Occasionally he will take out a crystal ball and begin to look at a random universe.

Job #1: New Character - Namor the Sub-Mariner
ClassicNamor.png
ModernNamor.png

(both designs can be used as costumes, fellow users. 'Nuff said)

Considering that this is our first job, I thought that this one would be fitting not only thematically, but also historically and for having ties with current fighters (Iron Man for Illuminati/their own special, Wolverine for mutants, Captain America for early times and Spider-Man for some team-ups).

Namor McKenzie, also known as the Sub-Mariner, is the ruler of an undersea kingdom Atlantis and a son of an Atlantian princess & a human fisherman, who first appeared in the unpublished Motion Picture Funnies Weekly in April 1939, predating his fellow veteran Captain America by two years. He is constantly drawn back into surface world affairs and often finds himself battling both Earth's superheroes and villains, such as Black Panther, Hulk, the Fantastic Four, Wolverine, etc., even having joined Invaders (alongside Cap, Bucky and the original android Human Torch, not to be confused with Johnny Storm), X-Men and the Avengers at some point.

In Marvel's history, the King of Atlantis himself is known as their first super-hero ever (thanks for a heads-up, SharkLord SharkLord !), first mutant long before X-Men themselves, anti-hero/villain ever in a comic book and actually predated DC's Aquaman by 2 years. He even appeared in Marvel's first cartoon show alongside Captain America, Hulk, Iron Man and Thor in 1966 ("You belong (x4)... to the Merry Marvel Marching Society!" How nostalgic, legit cried when I heard that in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes. Excelsior, true believers! And rest in peace, Stan Lee).

So, I thought it would make sense to include Namor as a legacy pick for his importance in the comic/superhero industry, because of all this above. He really deserves the credit and a chance.

For his playstyle and moveset potential, Namor is a middle-weight, who can use not only martial arts, but also Neptune's Trident as a weapon for long-reaching melee attacks, summon whirlpools, water geysers & tidal waves, a water shield to absorb projectiles for healing himself (check this document), shoot electric shocks like an eel, and even fly into the air with small wings on his ankles. He can also summon and control many sea monsters with an Atlantean relic, the Horn of Proteus (with Giganto likely being used for his ultimate move).

Now behold... witness our beloved, smiling half-human/half-Atlantean laughing at us surface-dwellers!
"IMPERIUS REX!" (it's a shame that he didn't show up in MCU yet...)

Job #1: Dr. Doom
70A8CA79-AD8C-4D69-AFD7-8C054B4F98C1.png

Dr. Doom is the greatest antagonist of the Fantastic Four, ruler of Latveria, one of the smartest characters in the Marvel Universe, and is seen by many as one of the greatest fictional villains of all time. His powers consists of intelligence, sorcery, combat skills, and indestructible armor (superhuman strength, gauntlet lasers, flight, forcefield generation, along with many different weapons and devices). Doom has a ton of potential for a platform fighting game.

Job One? Let's get at it.

Character: The Vision
Origin: The Avengers #57 (1968)
1634508454244.png


The Vision has been a mainstay of the line-up of one of Marvel's premier teams - the Avengers - ever since his inception in the late Silver Age, and with an unusual lineup of abilities - most notably his density manipulation - it allows him a weirder moveset compared to some of the heroes Marvel has to offer.

Interestingly, we've actually never seen him in a Marvel VS Capcom game... though his particularly notable presence in the MCU, despite this being based on the comics, means he's actually pretty popular now - despite being a "weirder" pick overall.

I imagine his moveset uses his density manipulation to his advantage - being a good evasive character who excels at heavy punishes and being able to dodge through many attacks, but requires good timing and patience to use effectively. This would somewhat reflect his own nature, being almost machine-like despite having the brain patterns of a human.

Notably, I'd also suggest that he needs his white appearance as an alt of his.

Job #3
Location Name: S.H.I.E.L.D Helicarrier (Classic)
Location Origin: Strange Tales #135 (1965)
1634844909937.png


I imagine that this would act as an effective representation of S.H.I.E.L.D as a whole. Whilst there's a lot of characters in the Marvel universe, I don't see it as particularly likely that characters like Maria Hill or Nick Fury would get in as playable - so being represented here could work wonders. A cool idea I also came up with is a mechanic where you fight on the runway itself, and occasionally, Quinjets will take off, land, or fly by - which you have to avoid as a stage hazard of sorts. (Of course, this can be turned off if you like.)

Job #4
Mechanic Name: Summons
The idea behind this mechanic takes inspiration from the MvC games as a whole, but more so the first than any other - as well as Assist Trophies. Essentially, the act of choosing a character isn't alone - you'd also pick a supporting character (who wouldn't be playable, but I'll get into that) who would, well, support you on the battlefield. Then, your gameplay could work a little like NASB - where, instead of the two-button Attacks/Specials mechanic, you have a third button as well - though, instead of "strong attacks", it could work as a "Summon button" of sorts. My own idea is that a summon could either have a single attack, and you have to "charge" a meter of some sort in order to access them - or maybe, a "summon" would have their own set of directional specials activated with the button?

For example, say you pick Captain America and your Summon is Falcon. You're playing as Cap, but using your Summon would have Falcon fly onto the screen doing his unique attack (which, let's say, involves him yeeting Redwing at the opponent or something) before he disappears. (Though, this is just a rough idea, I don't want to confirm/deconfirm anyone.)

Discussion #1
My own take on it would be kinda a cross between Smash, NASB and MvC. Hear me out here:

Button 1 (A) - Jabs, Tilts and Smashes (though probably with different names.)
The reason I pick this is simple - it works. As opposed to having four buttons, it works better to have "tilts" and "smashes" on the same button, simply for the sake of simplicity.

Button 2 (B) - Specials (again, probably with a different name)
My own idea for this is that, as with Smash and NASB, they're directional in nature based on which way the stick is pointed. However, my own suggestion would be that every character actually also has a Back Special, similar to Terry... I feel like it would be an unusual way of handling it.

Button 3 (Y) - Jump
Simple enough. This button, when pressed, will have your character jump into the air - with them having two jumps unless otherwise stated. For balancing purposes, I think it would be a bad move to have certain characters just be able to fly freely, so that won't be an option.

Button 4 (X) - Summon
Pressing the button would result in you activating your Summon. As mentioned earlier, Directional Summon Specials could work, but the idea of having a single Summon attack could work just as well in my personal opinion.

Stage name: Avengers Tower.

You fight on a Stark-tech drone that flies around the tower.

Gameplay Mechanic: Assemble

In a team battle, putting characters from the same comics team on the same side would boost their stats.

Moves should work exactly like in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Avengers Mansion

Takes place inside the mansion, various members of the Avengers can be seen going about their day. You can break though into multiple rooms.

Gameplay:

For gameplay. I was thinking normals would be done like they would be in Smash. But supers will be activated by a super attack meter. this fills up quickly with damage delt. This can be saved up for an ultimate attack, basically a final smash

Job #5:

Character Name: Jubilee
Character Origin: Uncanny X-Men #244 (1989)
1634943207924.png


Jubilee, I think, is a good choice for this. A character that's well known enough not to be obscure, but also not obscure enough to be a "joke pick." I think it helps that she was actually a summon in Marvel VS Capcom too - so her functioning similarly, by leaping onto the screen and attacking with her "fireworks" could be a cool way to represent her.

Job #6

Object Name: Hofund
Object Origin: Journey into Mystery #101 (1963)

The famed sword of the all-seeing Heimdall, this... doesn't work like you'd really expect. Aside from working like, well, a sword - the act of swinging it is difficult, due to its sheer size. However, when swinging it, it creates a platform in the form of the Bifrost Bridge - a rainbow bridge that crosses the entire screen, and acts as a platform you can drop through. After swinging it, the sword shatters, and the Bifrost lasts around 30 seconds - though attacking or otherwise damaging it will make it break sooner. This could be a massive mixup - helping teammates, or even allowing you to go for risky punishes at the edge of the screen!

Discussion Period #2

Personally, I'd say around 50 characters, including DLC, would be a good shot. My own idea would be:

38 main roster slots
12 DLC slots (In "packs" of 3, similar to compressed Fighters Passes, but all related in some way)

So we have to deconfirm characters for a summon? Arrgg....

I guess my summon character would be M.O.D.O.K. because his big head and hover chair is not that suitable for Smash. He can fire a psychic laserbeam from his forehead to blast the opponents.

My item would be Web Shooters.
Any character who uses this item can shoot webs at the opponent.

And the amount of characters we should have is 40 characters in the base game and 10 DLC characters as one pass.

The original X-Men villain, this master of magnetism has actually appeared in quite a few Marvel games already - and with good reason. A combination of his abilities and his fame has made him one of the most popular and beloved enemies in Marvel history - and he's even acted as an ally to Professor Charles Xavier in certain circumstances! Fighting for the domination of mutantkind over humanity, I think he's a logical choice for this game.

I would nominate Doctor Doom as our first villain. He's the archenemy of the Fantastic Four, but he's also a recurring Avengers villain. He's the first villain Squirrel Girl humiliated, but you know how overpowered she is. Doctor Victor von Doom is my nomination for Job 7.

Job #7: Ultron
59E90080-E725-47DB-A566-F06385F31BB7.png

Ultron is a self-aware intelligent robot that was created by Hank Pym to help save the world, but it turned into one of his worst mistakes of all time. Ultron grew a grudge against Hank and the rest of humanity. Ultron desires to create a new world, a world with the extinction of all of humanity. Ultron’s power is also always changing, depending on what form he takes. Ultron could use tons of weapons and lasers in his moveset, along with his army of bots for backup. Ultron is considered to be one of Marvel’s most dangerous villains of all time.

Job #7: Loki (resubmission)
Job #1: Loki
View attachment 334559
Loki is here to solve many problems immediately, like "why are the heroes fighting each other," (possible manipulation by Loki), "the game so far doesn't have many villains" (we only have 4 fighters so far, but okay here ya go), and "why don't we have any magical characters" (again, we're early in but here ya go). Plus, Loki is a popular and well-liked character and he even got his own show proving Disney also has high interests in the character.

Loki has great moveset potential in having superhuman abilities, while having ice manipulation, Illusions, and of course his Scepter, among many others.
Still think Loki has what it takes to be a great fighter, both moveset and character-wise, and I think having a villain that's a bit more low key in the series would be a great starter (I don't think we should immediately show off the big villain if the game gets a story mode), I can see Loki playing a major part but not being the big threat.

Job 7:
Thanos (Marvel)


Well, I nominate Thanos, because he could find in Fighting Game. He could be Bowser of the Game due to his Weight in the Game (Not counting Galactus, since he could be Arcade Mode Boss). He is most Popular Marvel Villian of All time.
