Stan Lee Working On Video Game, Verticus, For iOS



Stan Lee, renowned for his contribution to the comics industry, including co-creation of characters such as Spider-Man, the X-Men, and other Marvel superheroes, is working on a video game.


Titled Verticus, the iOS title is a superhero game with characters, story and even voiceover by Lee. You play as a superhero in a high-tech jump suit fending off an evil alien race. The game involves a free fall through the atmosphere, and you have to avoid obstacles and attacks along the way, while collecting materials to upgrade your suit with.


Verticus will be released this fall. It’s developed by Dallas-based developer, Controlled Chaos Media. You can watch a trailer for it above.
