The Inspiration Behind Marvel vs. Capcom 3’s Costumes (Marvel Side)


Between Capcom’s own increasingly fashionable roster of characters and Marvel’s fashionable-as-ever line-up of super heroes, Marvel vs. Capcom 3 has a lot of costumes.


Some of them are awesome costumes, like the Iron Spider-Man from Marvel’s Civil War event. And Wolverine’s black costume from the ongoing Uncanny X-Force series.


If you’re a comic fan, Marvel’s website has a nice mini-feature up on the inspiration behind the costumes for five of MvC3’s roster — Wolverine, Spider-Man, Magneto, She-Hulk and Iron Man — that you might like.


Seeing Wolverine’s Age of Apocalypse outfit make the cut was particularly interesting. No Scarlet Spider, though?
