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.
