Poll: Which Superhero Is in Need of a Video Game?

By Mark Delaney, 13 days ago
Happy Friday TA! Last week's poll kicked off the month looking ahead to upcoming new releases. April is a quiet month compared to the first few we just went through, but there are still a handful of titles to look forward to. Of the games we listed, Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice took the biggest piece of the pie. However, the majority of voters actually voted for none signifying maybe this is a good backlog month for most.

This week's poll looks at superhero games. Over on TrueTrophies we shared the news that PS4's exclusive Spider-Man is arriving this fall. On top of that, Square Enix has revealed they'll be publishing multiple upcoming games in the Marvel universe. Meanwhile, Rocksteady Studios, the team behind Batman Arkham, has been working on an unrevealed project for some time that many believe may be a new superhero game. Add to all of this the recent works from Telltale Games and Traveller's Tales and it's clear there's a market for metahumans, though it could also be argued that superhero games are surprisingly underrepresented in the games market, given how conducive their stories and characters are to the medium.

With that in mind, we ask you to tell us: which superhero is in need of a video game? Maybe you think Superman needs another try or maybe you'd like to see someone new get their first shot. We've included a few choices in the poll but we expect the "other" option will get a lot of play too. Let us know in this week's poll!
