Christmas is nearly here, and we can’t wait for it to be over. After spending over an hour in line with a stressed out mother struggling to wrestle candy from her brood of bratty toddlers, we desperately wanted to punch her screaming cubs in the face. But it’s not just the crowds and children that we hate. We have plenty leftover for all the gaudy lights, too. How wasteful!
Who decided that Marvel’s lineup of classic super heroes had to be transformed into grotesque Cabbage Patch Kids to be cool? Hardcore comic nerds will cry heresy over Marvel Super Hero Squad’s squat interpretation of our favorite X-Men and Avengers, though the game isn’t meant for them; it’s aimed at an infant audience. The kicker?
Ever heard of Marvel Super Hero Squad? Us neither. Apparently it’s a popular toyline that feeds Marvel’s beloved heroes through a shrinking machine. Suitably, MSHS seems to be Marvel Ultimate Alliance fed through the shrinking machine. Goons are punched and boxes smashed, only this time everything’s two feet shorter.
