Activision reveals some Marvel-ous pre-order items

Activision has revealed some of the GameStop exclusive pre-order items for its upcoming titles, X-Men Destiny and Spider-Man: Edge of Time. Get it, like they’re both Marvel character titles so I used “Marvel-ous” in the headline? Right? Right? Anyway…

So if you pre-order X-Men Destiny with the monster game retailer, you’ll get a code to unlock exclusive Havok X-Gene Powers and costumes. This will apparently let players wield plasma-enhanced attacks, stunning enemies by absorbing their energy and increasing damage over time. Also, don’t forget about the costume: you’ll be able to wear it.

Pre-orders for Spider-Man: Edge of Time will get you a code to — are you sitting down? — unlock some costumes. It’s the Identity Crisis Suits front he comic book story arc of the same name: Dusk, Prodigy, Ricochet, and Hornet. The suits will grant players increased health, increased damage, health regeneration, or shield regeneration respectively, depending on the suit you choose.

So there you go. Those really were Marvel-ous, right? I mean, there’s really no other way to put it here, guys.
