MARVEL VS CAPCOM
IN Franchises, Comic Values And Collections
*In celebration of Father’s Day, we go over the best fighting techniques in Marvel vs Capcom Infinite for PS4.
THE TEENAGE-FRIENDLY ARCADE CROSSOVER
In the popular Marvel vs Capcom series, players compete against opponents in teams of two or three. Originally, the inspiration for the series was X-Men: Children of The Atom and Marvel Super-Heroes. In the game, players use characters from Marvel and Capcom
For parents wondering what games to buy for their teenagers or for spouses looking for gifts for their husbands or children, Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 for example, has been rated PG-13 and up. Though there is intense violence, suggestive language and revealing attire.
Though the game has upped the series, an IGN review criticized the character’s unimaginative design, the slow gameplay and the lack of creative storyline. Nevertheless, the visuals, scenery and the fighting styles are sufficient entertainment.
Since we are interested in the fighting game, let’s rate the main characters’ fighting techniques and how they compare to the arcade or comic. For the most part, we are interested in strength, speed, and damage.
So, from our video above, let’s find out which Marvel or Capcom character has the most arcade- or comic-accurate fighting technique.
3. COMIC-ACCURATE: DOCTOR STRANGE: EYE OF AGAMOTTO
Generally, Doctor Strange’s Eye of Agamotto is his final attack against cosmic beings and Skyfathers. For instance, the comics showed Doctor Strange use the Eye of Agamotto to decisively end Wanda Maximoff’s attacks on the Avengers in Disassembled.
As matter of fact, this is very impressive since Scarlet Witch has great reality-warping power on a planetary scale due to her Chaos Magic. In the game, Doctor Strange’s attack is his signature technique.
Though it generates only 17 hits, it consumes about half of his life bar, which shows a great amount of damage. Given that it is a video game, comic characters are often nerfed in order by reducing the damage of their signature techniques.
Nevertheless, the final attack is more or less accurate as a finishing move.
VERDICT: MORE COMIC-ACCURATE
3. ARCADE-ACCURATE: RYU: SHO-RYU-KEN
Generally, Ryu’s hado is portrayed has one of the most powerful attacks. Really, it qualifies as a hyper-move. At the same time, for the most part the attack looks more like a kamehameha wave. In fact, the hado-ken signature technique is actually a really flying fireball.
In the gameplay, the sho-ryu-ken, is more accurate in terms of fighting and even allows for multiple punches with both hands. Though the execution and fighting is impressive, the damage of the technique is disappointing.
In fact, it only deals 3 hits though with a fourth of the life bar in damage.
So, in terms of power and execution, the signature technique is impressive though the damage is disappointing.
VERDICT: LEAST ARCADE-ACCURATE
2. COMIC-ACCURATE: THOR: LIGHTNING BLASTS
Perhaps, the most impressive fighting technique in terms of damage, is Thor’s lightning blast. In Marvel vs Capcom Infinite, Thor does not need to charge up his lightning strikes. Instead, he either raises his hammer high, or strikes his opponent into the air with Mjolnir.
In Infinity, Thor strikes Thanos at the head with a full lightning blast, resulting only in damaging the Titan’s armor. However, in the gameplay, Thor is able to damage more than half the life bar in just 3 hits. Impressive!
VERDICT: MOST COMIC-ACCURATE
2. ARCADE-ACCURATE: CHUN-LI’S LIGHTNING-KICK
In the gameplay, the adaptations to Chun-Li’s moves are the most impressive. Though her Spinning-Bird Kick is very different from the original arcade and really not impressive. However, with the Lightning Kick, a player can deal up to 15 hits.
What separates this attack from the rest is that the signature technique is both ground- and air-based which can quickly turn the tide in a stalemate. However, the drawback is that the attack deals only a sixth of a character’s life bar.
VERDICT: MORE ARCADE-ACCURATE
1. COMIC-ACCURATE: VENOM’S WEBBING
At the top, is one of Venom’s lesser known signature moves. For the source comics, Venom often entombs his enemies in webbing for various uses. In addition, the symbiote allows him to shape-shift and attack his opponents with tendrils.
In our game, Venom can damage more than half of an opponent’s life in just 8 hits with the attack. Generally, the attack displays strength, speed and damage. For this reason, it’s at the top of our list.
VERDICT: BEST COMIC-ACCURATE
