Reddit users dream up Marvel character roster for “Super Smash Bros” style fighting game

Last week, theMNOP’s Marvel feed featured a story that highlighted the top recent video games featuring Marvel characters. The piece ended with a daydream — a plea for an exclusive Nintendo Switch fighting game featuring characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Of course, the game would have to be based on Super Smash Bros. for perfection to be achieved.

Well, Reddit user korg2020 posted the image of our “Dream Roster” from the post on the Marvel Studios subreddit:


In the comment section, users went to town with suggestions of how they would picture the perfect roster and what each character’s play style might be.

Many didn’t seem down for the idea of Pepper Potts being included in a fighter, but they might be forgetting her Extremis breakout at the end of Iron Man 3. Plus, the male-dominated Marvel Cinematic Universe could use some more female representation. Across the board, this roster should highlight diversity.

The best idea given by the /r/MarvelStudios users was to include more characters from the new Hulu MCU title, The Runaways. This is a great suggestion — as there really are some bad ass characters on that show that could be highlighted with other young characters like Shuri, Spiderman, Cloak and Dagger.
