Marvel vs. Capcom DLC creates royal controversy in Spain

A piece of downloadable content for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 that puts Magneto in a kingly uniform has caused a bit of a stir in Spain. According to Spanish reports, the uniform greatly resembles that worn on occasion by its king, Juan Carlos. 

There is talk that the Spanish royal house may ask Capcom to remove this DLC, mirroring an event that happened once before when Marvel portrayed Magneto wearing similar garb in The Pulse: House of M. The royal house has not officially made a statement on the matter thus far, but says it will “discuss” the game content and whether it’s cool with it. 

Drawing pictures of kings is serious business!

[Thanks, Darknil!]
