I had this idea and decided to pursue it in thought.
A 2D fighter with a roster consisting of characters from across the comics and graphic novel worlds.
Imagine Spiderman fighting Bane
John Constantine versus The Darkness
Joe the Barbarian against Invincible
Its certainly a licensing and logistics nightmare, but to be honest I'm just curious if anyone here has had a similar idea or if you simply think its neat.
Some things I thought of immediately:
John Constantine, The Darkness, and Joe the Barbarian are mid-range fighters. Special moves fill parts of the screen or control movement.
Constantine with spells and ritual circle traps
The Darkness with tendrils and his minions
Joe with his companions (Read the book its amazing)
Spiderman is his usual light and fast in-fighter
Bane and Invincible are heavy hitting bruisers. Bane is very Hugo like in play and Invincible is more like Alex (I guess we're sticking with Street Fighter 3 examples for them)
Think of more examples? I'd love to read them. read
