Dr. Strange’s first appearance in a comic book was “Strange Tales” #110, back in 63. I actually knew the comic off the top of my head. Had to look up the year though. . . anyway! Dr. Strange was already in Marvel 2016, a terrifically fun Marvel online game by Gazillion. However, with the Dr. Strange film coming out, they’re putting in some special events and pieces of in-game work for players to unlock and collect! Like what, you might ask? Of course you might, and fortunately, that’s what I’m here for!
- Dr. Strange movie costume: Yup, a skin based on the Dr. Strange movie! They really do great work with pairing their content to current stuff such as the comics and films.
- Team-Ups: You can team up with the comic-version of Dr. Strange, or through the Sorcerer Supreme Mystery Box try your hand to get a movie version instead!
- Mordo: Yes, Mordo! A new team-up, that can fight alongside any character you wish to use. Mordo is awesome, so I’m looking forward to that!
- Invaders from the Dark Dimension: This has already started, and has one more week to go. Hordes of demons are invading Manhattan, and it’s up to the heroes of the Marvel Universe to stop it!
That’s one thing I love about Marvel 2016, and that’s their faith to the source material. Whenever a film or show comes, they do their level best to create something that is true to that. Luke Cake, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Civil War have all gotten this treatment! They keep working hard on the game, and it’s certainly a comic book game worth taking note of. The constant visual updates to older characters and addition of new and exciting comic characters keep my eyes on it. Many of my favorites are in the game! Not all, but many. Somehow, I don’t think they’ll let me play as Galactus. . . hinthint. I’d really like to come back and play it on a regular basis, and maybe I can use this bully pulpit of mine to do just that! Stay tuned, True Believers, for more Marvel 2016 information!
