New Marvel vs Capcom 3 videos show Magneto and MODOK in action

Last Friday Capcom revealed two new characters for the very anticipated Marvel vs Capcom 3, Spencer from the most recent Bionic Commando and Arthur of Ghosts ‘n’ Goblins. At the same time, Marvel leaked their own reveal of two new characters, as screens of MODOK (Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing) and Magneto appeared on the web. The next day Marvel made those guys official and revealed the villains’ debut videos:

Above: The Master of Magnetism controls all


Above: You better respect this evil mastermind and his giant head

Not bad at all. At the same event, this previous weekend’s New York City Comic Con, Marvel also debuted some new gameplay footage featuring all four of the new fighters, as well as our first in-game looks at Spider-Man and Wesker in alternate costumes. Take a look below:


But who’s left to fill out the roster? Marvel hinted that some more ladies could be joining the fight. Possibly She-Hulk? Spider-Woman? Ms Marvel? Hellcat? And what’s left for Capcom? Blanka? Captain Commando? Someone from Power Stone? Freaking Mega Man already for God’s sake!?!

    Crossing my fingers that they add Issun! That'd be great to control a tiny glowing dot.

    When the hell Marvel give Bishop a shot?
  • NightCrawler_358 - October 12, 2010 2:35 a.m.

    i go through all these stupid 30 second ads just to find the video player doesn't show video. huhhhhh... also when mega man is announced, he better not be like volnutt or helmet-less, or x/proto/hyper manthing. just a straight up Mega Man from the original 6.

    Looks like if someone melted Jolly Ranchers and spalttered them on my TV screen in the shape of Marvel and Capcom Characters. IE its very colorful and vibrant
  • lolwizards - October 12, 2010 1:48 a.m.

    I really want a character from Breath of Fire!
  • ThatGuyFromTV - October 12, 2010 1:30 a.m.

    on the last vid, at 2:46: Rapid fire Falcon Punch? Also, Magneto looks kinda overpowered (again), as does Spencer.

    I'm lovin' the attention to detail they're treating this game with. Characters tagging each other in by name, nicknames, professional VAs, (presumably) alternate dialogue for alt. costumes?? Capcom really isn't taking their MvC greenlight for granted, and the generous level of publicity they've kept with fans is admirable. Seriously, so many devs/publishers these days have been arrogantly lobbing their franchises at us like raw meat into a lion's den. Capcom's PR is more like a four-star steak dinner lol. Yeah... I'm excited.

    did i hear spencer yell "get over here" when he reached across the screen to grab magneto? reminds me a bit of scorpion...
  • P0LARCLAW - October 11, 2010 8:44 p.m.

    Does anyone actually like MODOK?
  • ventanger - October 11, 2010 8:38 p.m.

    Whoops, meant Spider-woman.. Oh and then Jean Grey... a Dark Phoenix hyper combo would be most epic.
  • ventanger - October 11, 2010 8:30 p.m.

    And the third stage is Thor's, it's Asgard
  • ventanger - October 11, 2010 8:29 p.m.

    Hmmm new women for the Marvel side list... aside from She Hulk, Ms Marvel, Spider-man, Hellcat White Queen Storm Rogue Black Cat Black Widow Dazzler ummmm.... Buffy the Vampire Slayer? Ok I know all the problems there but hey, call Dark Horse, I think they'll budge.

    @Engage183 - I feel the same. OT:I get the feeling that M.O.D.O.K. laser is going to be rather spammable.
  • StrayGator - October 11, 2010 8:22 p.m.

    Where is the 3rd vid's stage from? DMC?
  • Felixthecat - October 11, 2010 8:20 p.m.

    Arthur looks like a beast, I'm so glad they put him in. MODOK is fuggin' huge, and reminds me of Sentinal, and Spencer looks surprisingly good.
  • Engage183 - October 11, 2010 8:04 p.m.

    Has Venom been announced yet? someone please tell me venom has been announced...
  • FalconReaper - October 11, 2010 8:02 p.m.

    I liked how Magneto's theme is a remix of the boss theme from X-Men Children of The Atom. This pleases me
  • zurc136 - October 11, 2010 8:01 p.m.

    Magneto sounds EXACTLY like Quincy Sharp from Batman: Arkham Asylum
  • MyNameIsMyName - October 11, 2010 7:57 p.m.

    It'd be cool if MODOK's alts where his different forms, like M.O.D.O.G. or the M.O.D.O.C. units from Brubaker's Captain America run for example. That would work for all character's actually, Magneto could also be Polaris, Captain America could also be BuckyCap, Wolverine could be Daken, Thor Beta Ray Bill etc.
