I don’t know if anyone doubted that Capcom would be making a special edition of Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, but if you know someone who did, hit them. And then show them this unfortunately lo-res trailer for Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom — it has nothing to do with the Ultimate Universe, but it does include more fights including Ghost Rider, Hawkeye, Strider Hiryu and some Capcom pterodactyl man character called Firebrand who could probably pass for X-Men foe Sauron if you squint. I will fully admit that Hawkeye’s special move did magical things in my pants. Thanks to Coryceps and SIX min WHISTLE for the tip. UPDATE: THE OTHER CHARACTERS HAVE LEAKED!!! They include: ? Doctor Strenge ? Iron Fist ? Nova ? Rocket Raccoon ? Frank West from Dead Rising ? Nemesis from Resident Evil ? Phoenix Wright ? Vergil from Devil May Cry
ROCKET. FUCKING. RACCOON. AAAAAAAA. Infinite thanks to Rick V. for the tip!
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
