LEGO Marvel Super Heroes reveals its ultimate villain, and we are all acting surprised. I gasped audibly. We did not see this coming. Well, we did see it coming. We just didn’t know it would be so freaky.
Of all the incarnations of Marvel’s world-eating ultimate menace, the brief glimpse we’re given here in the Gamescom trailer for LEGO Marvel Super Heroes might be the scariest. Certainly more frightening than the giant guy in purple and blue spandex with a silly hat on classic version, and barely inching past Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer‘s vaguely Galactus-shaped cloud.
Of course the moment after the big reveal he probably does a pratfall, or the heroes try to satiate him with Hostess Fruit Pies or something. It’s still LEGO.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, to be exact, due out later this year on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, DS, 3DS, Vita, PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
UPDATE: How did I miss that? At 1:26, as readers point out, we have LEGO Squirrel Girl. Galactus is screwed.
