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 hasapparently leakedtomorrow'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!
