Marvel vs Capcom 3: Arthur, Modok, Magneto and Wife A... Bionic Commando guy confirmed

As part of New York's Comic-Con festivities, Capcom today announced the inclusion of Arthur (Ghosts 'n' Goblins) and Spencer (Bionic Commando) as playable fighters in Marvel vs Capcom 3. Get ready for screens, art and video!

Above: As always, Arthur will lose his armor, revealing lovely boxers underneath. Will he lose stamina/damage as well?

Above: Oh, goodie. It's the Wife Arm version of Nathan Spencer. Sure is cooler than the other, less sucky version

Above: Oh hey - it's a black costume Spider-Man! Color variants will also include different costumes like Iron Spider and his new neon green costume, plus stuff like grey Hulk

Above: Spencer clobbering Deadpool, who's wearing his X-Men/Force/eXiles costume

Above: Official Arthur art

Above: Official Spencer art, with his dumbass wife arm

Above: Arthur's debut trailer, which includes a rock version of the GnG theme!

Above: And then this guy

So we now have two new Capcom fighters - where's the Marvel balance? Expect two new comic heroes/villains to appear tomorrow during another announcement from New York Comic-Con. Who do YOU want to see make the cut? Would it be too much to ask for Vision or perhaps a Beta Ray Bill alt costume?


Marvel's official website has apparently leaked tomorrow's reveal, which is Magneto (well duh) and... MODOK? Yes, the Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing is floating his way onto PS3/360 next year. Expect further details soon!

    Is the alternate costume of the Wife Arm Spencer going to be the Husband Arm Spencer? :D I'm pretty sure they put the reboot version in it to remind 4 or 5 people that the Bio Commando reboot exists.

    Marvel wants to keeps it up balance? i got something in mind throw out Master Chief John-S117 and few of all 6 Novel team!!
  • OHMYGODIMONFIRE - October 10, 2010 5:33 p.m.

    I'm actually glad to see wife arm spencer. say what you may story wise- he's an alright character.
  • ajcich - October 10, 2010 12:45 p.m.

    MODOK? REALLY?? I'll give $100 bucks to anyone who can give me his back story along with Dormammu's... What's with picking the most RANDOM villains for the game?
  • Mexicutioner - October 10, 2010 11:03 a.m.

    Gah! I hope Magneto get's re-designed. He looks like he was rendered on the PS2 for Christ's sake!
  • Spybreak8 - October 9, 2010 10:32 p.m.

    wife arm! haha
  • MrSuitMan - October 9, 2010 10:31 p.m.

    Man MODOK is ridiculously goofy. But that's what makes it an incredibly awesome choice to out in the game! Man this game's gonna be sweet.
  • YES - October 9, 2010 10:22 p.m.

    Spencer totally says cocksucker during one of his attacks. hahaha
  • Darkhawk - October 9, 2010 9:42 p.m.

    I've been waiting for Arthur in MvC 3 ever since I started coming up with fictional character lists for the game back when it was only a figment of my imagination. On the other hand... BWAHAHAHA! Capcom is "farting in the general direction" of all Bionic Commando fans. I mean, it doesn't bother me, but W.T.F?
  • JakandDax3 - October 9, 2010 8:40 p.m.

    really really really really really hate the 3D look. i'm still gonna buy it, because MvC2 was my favorite game, but the look is almost too hideous to bear.
  • YuGiOhisbetterthanMagic - October 9, 2010 8:26 p.m.

    i thought the Iron Man/Spence taunts was worth a chuckle, and Aurthur seems to be making kinda a comeback, with his costume in Dead Rising and now this.
  • VyseTheTetrisdork - October 9, 2010 6:53 p.m.

    It's the concept of needing a human sacrifice in order for artificial limb technology, something very real that will eventually get to cool stuff like the limbs in Bionic Commando, to achieve the ultimate goal of a limb that works as great as if not better than a real limb. For the game itself, I don't mind dreadlock Spencer and think he would be a good addition. I mind the arm, which will still be his wife with the Rearmed looks. They better address it in some of the taunts, pre-fight talks, and post-fight speeches for the funny.
  • sixboxes - October 9, 2010 6:22 p.m.

    wow guys. I looked at the headline, and thought "Hee hee hee.. that wife arm joke will never get old!" And yet, by the time I hit the end of the article, it was. And of course the comments were just lash marks across the horse's corpse. Sigh.
  • Paynekiller87 - October 9, 2010 6:18 p.m.

    The whole 'Wife Arm' thing was only funny the first time. Spencer is a good character choice and it's good to see Capcom putting some variation into their choices.
  • metroid2099400 - October 9, 2010 5:18 p.m.

    I'm looking for Venom, which isn't a particularly long shot. I'd love to see Moon Knight, as well, but that's never gonna happen. ...then again, MODOK...
  • xboxwarriorx - October 9, 2010 4:44 p.m.

    FIST ON PAGE 2! YESSS! x_x plz in future when you mention ps3/360 x_x put xbox 360 as first, most popula console, is lok chalk and cheee! love x
  • Hotdiddykong - October 9, 2010 4:44 p.m.

    I know that, but Takumi, the ace attorney developer said that if even though he was deconfirmed, if he gets enough fan support he'll consider trying to convince them to put an ace attorney character!
  • 8bitBaby - October 9, 2010 2:56 p.m.

    cool! wait... WIIIIIIIIIIIIIFE AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARM! nooooooooooooooooooooo! wait... spiderman has ANOTHER costume?! man... i've been out of the marvel loop for too long. ew... neon green? is he going to a super hero rave? oontz oontz oontz...
  • Felixthecat - October 9, 2010 2:25 p.m.

    How the FUCK do you implement MODOK into this game? Also, Spencer will more than likely have an alternate costume of his good ol' self. I'm very excited about finally playing MvC3.
  • NightCrawler_358 - October 9, 2010 1:21 p.m.

    HOLY CRAP! check the older posts, i totally called Arthur! but i dont like magneto. he was always so cheap i found. but MODOK should be different. this lineup is already awesome, definitely gonna buy day 1!
