Pixelitis Picks: Comic book “heroes” that deserve a good game

Superheroes in comics have it pretty rough. They deal with exorbitantly high expectations, their enemies keep getting out of jail or coming back from the dead and after all that, they usually can’t bathe in the limelight long enough to enjoy it before some other d-bag shows up.

Even worse, some of them have had the misfortune of getting seriously bad videogame adaptations or no adaptations at all. Superman 64 and nearly every Batman game until Arkham Asylum come to mind. In one case, a bad game sullies a character’s name, while no game keeps their existence further in obscurity.

So for this week, in honor of this past weekend’s New York Comic Con and the upcoming Deadpool game, some of the Pixelitis staff have given some love to some misrepresented or completely ignored characters of the comic book world. (Culture, New York Comic Con)
