5 Superheroes That Deserve Their Own Video Game Universe

Previous1 of 7

Superheroes Video Game UniverseWorld building and universe building are not new. These writing techniques have been around for centuries, long before we even started writing our stories down. I always considered Beowulf to be the precursor to superheroes and comics. However, due to the overwhelming success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the CW DC Universe (or Arrowverse), it seems that the universal world building that has been in comics for three-quarters of a century has finally become a major storytelling point in both the film and TV worlds of superheroes.

Between Rocksteady’s Arkham Trilogy (Batman: Arkham Origins was developed by WB Games Montreal), Telltale Games’ Guardians of the Galaxy, Insomniac Games establishing that their Spider-Man game will be the anchor point for a new Spider-Man universe, and the announcement from earlier this year of a multi-year, multi-game deal between Marvel and developer/publisher Square Enix it seems like the video games will be the next place where sprawling superhero stories will be told.

    Would put Daredevil, Martian Manhunter or Superman in the Punisher and Miss Marvel’s place though.

    Super Hot would make a pretty good starting point for making a Flash game.

    5. No, no one will play. Not even a Lego FF4.
    4. Doing Green Lantern games require AAA budget and gigantic studio behind it, if you are going to make a proper open world + space game, and not just some lame linear 3rd person action shooter. And no producer would buy that license from WB to spend 200 mill on a game that might flop.
    3. See above bulletpoint, only the chance of failure is more amplified.
    2. The most feasible one, because Punisher lends to a well made linear action shooter storyline that can be done in an emotional and brutal way. It can be done with a modest budget and development team, so it might get the greenlight.
    1. The problem with WW is that effectively…. Those games are made. They ARE called God of War, only with Kratos as Diana.
