Marvel vs Capcom: Who Has The Best Comic And Arcade-Accurate Fighting Techniques?

 

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

Marvel vs Capcom.

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.

In the recent Marvel vs Capcom Infinite, Marvel and Capcom baddies Ultron and Sigma attempt to use the Infinity Stones in order to merge both universes and rid their new world of organic life.

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.

rooflemonger

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

Fan Theory: Following “King In Black”, Maker Might Conquer Eddie And Dylan Brock To Restore The Ultimate Universe

In 'Venom' (2021) #200, Eddie Brock reveals Maker is a multiversal anomaly.

IN UNIVERSAL AND MULTIVERSAL ANOMALIES

MAKER’S ORIGIN STORY

In the “Ultimatum” event, Magneto creates cataclysmic events on Earth-1610. Previously, Hawkeye‘s assassination attempt on Magneto was thwarted at the cost of Quicksilver’s life. Indeed, in retaliation for the deaths of his children, Wanda and Pietro. Using Thor’s Mjolnir, Magneto shifted the planet’s magnetic poles. As a result of the cataclysms, millions died including several Ultimate heroes.

In order to regain a sense of normalcy, Reed Richards proposed to Invisible Woman. However, Sue rejected his proposal. In ‘Ultimate Comics Ultimates’ (2013) #30, Reed’s descent towards Maker is evident. A week after the Ultimatum, Kang the Conqueror visited Reed from the future. Shockingly, Kang revealed herself as Sue Storm. Incredibly, she commissioned Reed to gather the Infinity Gauntlet. In short, she wanted to prevent the end of the Ultimate Universe. In the end, the path would lead to Mister Fantastic becoming the Maker.

AFTER “KING IN BLACK,” MAKER IS A MULTIVERSAL ANOMALY

In “Venom” (2021) #200, Eddie Brock is adjusting to being the new King in Black. As the God of the Symbiotes, Eddie can control all the symbiotes. Really, all that ever existed and he can see through them. In fact, he can pilot them to multiples places at the same time. Moreover, his omniscience allows him to see Knull’s first war against the God of Light. Curiously, Eddie speculates he may be able to travel through the timestream and alter history.

Nevertheless, the only being that has ecaped his omniscience is Maker. In ‘Venom’ (2020) #26, Maker had successfully created an artificial symbiote. To this end, he had used an Earth-616 symbiote. Sinisterly, he had planned to travel to the Ultimate Universe. However, his plan was foiled by a man in an Iron Man-esque armor. Finally, Maker was transported to the Ultimate Universe through a dimensional rift. In a sense, he became a multiversal anomaly.

IN ORDER TO JOIN THE COUNCIL OF REEDS, MAKER MIGHT CONQUER EDDIE AND DYLAN BROCK

In ‘Venom’ (2021) #200, Eddie appears at multiple locations in the Marvel Universe. Seriously, he warns the different heroes of Maker’s master plan. Ultimately, Maker seeks to join the Council of Reeds. Ironically, all members of the Council come from stable universes. Decisively, they have tasked Maker to restore the Ultimate Universe. Ultimately, it is the condition before he can join.

As Eddie reveals, Maker’s plan likely involves erasing the Marvel Universe. On top, he would rebuild the Ultimate Universe. Initially, his work for the Council is under the code name “Project Oversight.” Historically, Maker was interested in symbiotes for dimensional travel. Logically, Eddie and Dylan would be his targets. Perhaps, he would raise his own army of synthetic symbiotes.

Fan Theory: Miles Morales In The Mainstream Marvel Universe Means The Ultimate Universe Was Rebooted After Secret Wars

 

FAN THEORY

In 'Secret Wars' (2016) #9, Doctor Doom and Mister Fantastic battle in Molecule Man's white hot room.

IN UNIVERSAL AND MULTIVERSAL ANOMALIES

“SECRET WARS” REBOOTED THE MARVEL MULTIVERSE

In “Secret Wars” (2015), the Marvel multiverse is being destroyed by the multiversal entities known as the Beyonders. Only two remaining universes remain: the main Marvel universe and the Ultimate universe. In the Beyond, Doctor Doom meets with the Beyonders in order to save the remaining universes. Originlly, Molecule Man was designed by the Beyonders as a bomb that would destroy the multiverse. Using Molecule Men as bombs, Doctor Doom and Doctor Strange killed the Beyonders and stole their power.

During the incursions between Earth-616 and Earth-1610, Mister Fantastic built the Future Foundation Life Rafts to transport the survivors to the incursion points. Suffering a hull breach, they nevertheless survived and were transported to Battleworld, created by Doctor Doom. On Battleworld, Doctor Doom was worshipped as God on a world of controlled chaos. There, the Life Raft and the Cabal opposed Doom’s reign. In the end, Doom was defeated and Molecule Man destroyed Battleworld, rebooting the mainstream Marvel universe. In the end, the Ultimate universe was no more.

MILES MORALES JOINED THE MAINSTREAM MARVEL UNIVERSE

In ‘Secret Wars’ (2015) #6, the Maker’s and Reed Richards plans are set into motion. Miles Morales and Spider-Man go off to the White Room to find Doom’s source of power. There, in front of Molecule Man’s statue, they find Valeria, Doctor Doom’s daughter on Battleworld but who is actually Reed Richards’ daughter. After a brief discussion with her, the two Spider-Men enter the white room. Inside, they find Molecule Man there who asks them if they brought him something to eat. Surprisingly, Miles Morales takes out a three week-old hamburger from his pocket and gives it to Molecule Man.

Fully fed, Spider-Man asks Molecule Man about Doctor Doom’s power source. Molecule Man tells them they are looking at him. In ‘Secret Wars’ (2016) #9, Miles Morales has a flashback to that moment. In the white room, Molecule Man thanks him for the burger. It is implied that Molecule Man saved Miles Morales and his family in the new mainstream Marvel universe. In the present, the two Spider-Men are on a rooftop and after Peter checks if Miles has done his homework, the two Spider-Men swing into adventure to go beat up on bad guys.

VENOM WARNS THE MAKER SEEKS TO RE-CREATE THE ULTIMATE UNIVERSE

In ‘Venom’ (2021) #200, the Ultimate universe resurfaces. Now, Eddie Brock has become the new King in Black and is testing his super powers. After testing his omniscience, he notes the only one escaping his power is the Maker, Reed Richards’ evil counterpart from the Ultimate universe. Having obtained an artificial symbiote from the Ultimate universe, the Maker used Venom‘s symbiote to augment and heal his psyche.

Able to travel between dimensions, the Maker returned to the Ultimate universe, which was destroyed. Then, Eddie uses his super powers to meet simultaneously the Avengers, Quiet Council of Krakoa, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Silver Surfer and other groups to warn them tat the Maker will likely return to conquer Earth-616. In fact, this task has been commissioned him by the Interdimensional Council of Reeds. In all likelihood, it is possible the Ultimate universe was rebooted after “Secret Wars.”

A HISTORY OF THE SYMBIOTE

In ‘Venom’ (2018) #4, the dark Elder god Knull tells Eddie Brock about the origin of the Venom symbiote, the Klyntar. AP Photo/Marvel Comics

In ‘Venom’ (2018) #4, the dark Elder god Knull in Knowhere tells Eddie Brock about the origin of the Venom symbiote, the Klyntar.

The story begins with the Elder god Knull “in the beginning” being invaded in his dimension by the Celestials.1 Seeing it as a war between light and darkness, Knull summons a sword out of the Abyss and decapitates a Celestial.

Then, using its remains, he forges the necrosword, the beginning of the symbiote. He sets out to attack the night and is then repelled onto a desolate, abandoned planet. Then, Knull creates the symbiote on the planet by bonding his abyss with lesser creatures. Eventually, Knull raises an army to slay gods across the galaxy until they reach Earth.

The Grendel, which is a dragon sent by Knull to slay worlds, reach Earth and are slayed by Thor’s lightning bolt. The bond between Knull and his army is broken across the galaxy and the symbiotes become infected by “venom”.1 They become the Klyntar and rise up against Knull who is consumed by the darkness.

In ‘Venom: Dark Origin #4’, the symbiote tells Eddie Brock his origin story. He remembers 60,000 light-years away and being born on the nameless desolate planet. There, Venom protects a rodentoid alien by transforming it into an apex predator.

VENOM HAS HAD TWELVE HUMAN HOSTS

Venom has had twelve human hosts. In Deadpool’s Secret Secret Wars #3, Venom’s first human host was Deadpool on Battleworld. Deadpool wore the symbiote moments before Spider-Man would come to use it to repair his damaged costume. Deadpool realized the symbiote had bonded and was interfacing with his mind. Fearing that his insanity would affect the symbiote, he returned it to its prison.

Another notable host of the symbiote has been Flash Thompson. In ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ (2011) #654, Flash Thompson became Venom after he was enlisted onto Project: Rebirth 2.0. Flash was bonded to the symbiote acquired after the Siege of Asgard. Once bonded, Flash was able to regenerate his legs and had powers similar to Spider-Man’s.

VENOM IS BORN!

In ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ (1988) #300, Daily Globe journalist Eddie Brock publishes about the Sin-Eater. Suffering from adrenal cancer with a few months to live, journalist Eddie Brock wanted to break out a story for the Daily Globe. He was contacted by Emil Gregg who claimed to be the Sin-Eater. He began publishing front-page exclusives protecting the Sin-Eater’s identity under the First Amendment until pressure from the police and his editor forced him to reveal the Sin-Eater as Emil Gregg. From that time, Eddie was filled with hate for Spider-Man.

Unfortunately for Eddie, that same day, Spider-Man and Daredevil captured the real Sin-Eater and revealed his identity to be Detective Stan Carter. He was fired from the Globe, his wife Anne left him and his father disowned him. Seeking redemption, he headed to Our Lady Of Saints Church to beg forgiveness from God and commit suicide. Once inside, he was attacked by the alien symbiote and bonded to it. The symbiote bonded to Eddie mentally and physically and revealed that he had posed as Spider-Man’s costume, but that Spider-Man had attempted to kill it using the church’s bell tower. Eddie’s despair, rage and fierce hate for Spider-Man fed the symbiote. Venom was born!
