Here's your first look at Marvel Universe's Wolverine

Unlike other super-powered MMOs, Gazillion's Marvel Universe Online will actually drop players into the tights of well-known comic book characters. Instead of being forced to make cheap knock-off characters we'll actually be able to play as Gambit, Spider-man, and Wolverine. Today, the first image of Wolverine has been released, and he looks, well, exactly like we expected he would look.

Hot damn did they make his claws long, though. Like, seriously. Super long claws. We're used to them being like half of that length - those are like the size of his arms.

While we're looking forward to running around the streets and doing battle with other super heroes and villains, we're still skeptical of playing as actual Marvel characters instead of making our own. Sure, it's lame to need to make "Wolfereen" and "Human Spider," but joining a group of four Wolverines doesn't really sound like it's going to be all that fun, either. Regardless, our comic book fanboyism makes it so that we must remain optimistic, no matter how unsure we are of the future of this MMO.

    I hope they do it so that there can be only one of each character in each game world. Marvel has thousands of characters, it can work. Also have lots of costume options. That way every game world will be it's own little and Unique Marvel Universe.

    If this is the case, then they should add ALL the marvel superheros, complete with tons of different costumes for them. the plot could be a cross planet/universe type thing so that 2 different spider-men wouldnt be super weird. Like house of M spidey and normal spidey fighting together because a supermegavillain is threatening all universes. although a guild full of different spider-men would be kinda ridiculous. GO TEAM SPIDEY! and they should add batman and green lantern too. just kidding.

    Shouldn't those blades be about his forarm length (at lease up to the wrist), since that's where they come from? Other than that, ... Cool. Won't get this though.

    They could remedy the copycat problem by just including a whole crapload of superheroes.
