With E3 just around the corner, the news cycle doesn’t start a few days early as publishers and developers look to get their smaller bytes out just before the flood gates open. It starts a week out. And with that first wave comes a look at LEGO Marvel Super Heroes. In the horde of stories coming out in the E3 before the next generation of console launches, Traveller’s Tales and WB Games were smart to get us these screens early.
The latest shots from LEGO Marvel Super Heroes shows some characters we already knew were coming to the game like Captain America, Wolverine, Iron Man and Thor in the staple of Marvel locales New York City and the newly announced Asgard. The crazy thing is Asgard and especially its rainbow bridge look pretty darn beautiful in LEGO. But with all the new visual glory coming soon from the PS4 and XBox One, it’s probably for the best we see these graphics now rather than after the Microsoft and Sony press conferences.
In addition, we also get to see some new characters with Johnny Storm (not in Human Torch mode) and Mr. Fantastic added to the fray on top of the Destroyer (the big angry tin can from Thor) making their LEGO debuts. They are definitely going for the classic Johnny Storm personality with this character model as they somehow figured out how to give a LEGO character douchey hair. Maybe they will toss in a Flash Thompson into the Spider-Man sections of the game as well. Mr. Fantastic’s stretchability is shown in action as his elongated arm is seen in the shot.
It’s worth noting that neither a Human Torch or Mr. Fantastic LEGO minifig have been created in real life yet. In addition, a look at the LEGO constructed Destroyer is given. Judging by the amount of bricks in him, the scale of the battle with the Destroyer could be along the same size as the Lex Luthor robot in LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes if done correctly.
