After years of being referred to as simply Marvel Universe, Gazillion’s massively multiplayer superhero game finally has an official name. Unfortunately, it’s Marvel Heroes. How can a name featuring such a recognisable name sound so generic?
I would have preferred Marvel Super Hero Squad, but that name is taken by Gazillion’s kid-friendly free-to-play MMO already, so we’re stuck with Marvel Heroes.
I suppose it’s an appropriate name for a massively multiplayer online game that lets players step into the spandex booties of Marvel’s most iconic characters, including the newly-revealed Spider-Man, but can’t we jazz it up a little? Hell, call it Mighty Marvel Team-Up or something. I’m falling asleep just imagining playing Marvel Heroes.
