Marvel and LEGO Make a Super Game and a Powerful Series


Lego-Marvel-Super-heroes-series-game-videoWe love us some LEGO in these parts, and we are big Marvel fans, too. We’re like that. Needless to say, we have been waiting patiently for the day that the two would meet in video game form.

That day has come. Also, an online series.

That’s right, it’s a twofer, and that’s what clean living and wishful thinking get you.

The LEGO Marvel Super Heroes video game allows players to control 150 characters like Spider-Man, the Avengers, the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, Deadpool, and many others to battle Galactus, Dr. Doom, and all of your favorite Marvel villains in an attempt to save the world. As one does.
