Everywhere I look, it's Marvel, Marvel, Marvel. The Iron Man movie. The second Hulk movie (which, unlike the first one, might actually not suck). The Action section at Blockbuster chock full of DVDs like three X-Men movies, three Spider-Man movies, two Fantastic Fours, Daredevil, Electra, Blade...Even a crappy old Punisher flick.

Can it be long until the Marvel Universe invades the boardgame world? Stay tuned, true believers!

Wooden Ships and Iron Man

Kind of an unbalanced game:

It's the HMS Victory versus Iron Man...And Iron Man wins!
It's the USS Constitution versus Iron Man...And Iron Man wins!
It's the Achille versus Iron Man...And Iron Man wins!

How many Doombots can the Fantastic Four's greatest nemesis stuff into a Dutch truck?

Battle Thor

A name that's almost too redundant, like Peter O'Toole.

Don't Talk To Doctor Strange

You'll never figure out what he's talking about. Where the heck is Hoggoth, and why are their hosts hoary? Sheesh.

Race for Galactus

Misprint: The title should have been "Race from Galactus."

Kill Professor X

You keep trying to corner him, and he keeps making just the right move to get away...It's almost as though he knows what you're thinking.

Hammer of the Skrulls

Do you know how Super Skrull gets his mad on before a big fight? Someone reminds him that his official name is "Super Skrull."

Kingpin, Me

I roll the dice. I move along the Monopoly board. You give me $10,000 in protection money. I roll again.

Hey, I love this game!

Tide of Iron Fist

Hello, Iron Fist here! Remember me, founding member of Heroes for Hire?

I don't get it. I can punch through solid steel, and no one takes me seriously.

Maybe it's the yellow bandana...Or the yellow slippers...Naw, couldn't be.
