Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 Already Woefully Out Of Sync With Comic Book Reality

For a while, it seemed that Marvel Vs. Capcom 3: The Fate of Two Worlds could fit into current Marvel Comics continuity. Not that that's important, despite comics readers (including me) caring a wee bit too much about continuity sometimes.

The game and the comics seemed to be lining up okay. Captain America and Magneto, for example, are in the game and currently not dead in the comics.

Sadly, news from Marvel today suggests the comic universe and the game may no longer be in sync. Today, you see, is the day that Marvel Comics revealed a new look for... MODOK.

Old-look MODOK? Giant-fat-head in a floating chair. That's in the game.

New-look MODOK? Giant-fat-head that sits on a chassis of spider legs.

I would be able to raise more false outrage if I wasn't saving it for the fact that DC Universe Online will feature Wonder Woman in her classic costume, not her new one, based on the screenshots I've seen.

Someone explain this! Time warp? MODOK clone? Make it make sense.

New comic book MODOK and Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 will both be out next month.

The biggest shame of all, is that Nathan Spencer is using his new costume, which is only reflective of an utterly unlikable character, with atrocious voicework, in a significantly unpolished game (the game did have potential, though, and a few good moments).

They should've either got old-school Radd Spencer, or use his costume from Re-Armed (not Re-Armed 2, though; he looks a little Grandpa-ish in the upcoming sequel).
