Marvel: Powers United VR might not be as cool as its debut trailer

But it has potential

Oculus unveiled one of their new big projects over the weekend, Marvel Powers United. It looks like a take on Robo Recall, but with an emphasis on co-op play.

I really miss the days where the Marvel, Sony, and Fox didn’t muddy the waters with their film rights. When Wolverine could be in Marvel vs. Capcom and crossovers like X-Men Legends could have pretty much anyone they wanted on the roster. Folks are already tentatively interested in Powers United pending Spider-Man’s inclusion, but I’m not so sure it’ll happen.

As for the video itself, I’m immediately reminded of the fantastic intro for the not-so-fantastic and ill-fated TV show, Powerless.
