Capes Without Comics – Vidjagame Apocalypse 280

Spider-Man is out on PS4 at last, so this week we’re joined by USgamer‘s Mike Williams, here to talk about his 4.5/5 review. We keep the theme going with a Top 5 about superhero games that weren’t based on comics, talk about The Messenger and Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise, and finish with the games that helped you get through your school years.

Question of the Week:
If you were to create your own superhero persona, what would it be?

  1. QotW: My superhero persona is known as Glove Man. A regular guy who stumbled upon an incredible power, the powerful Gloves of Guardwin. With powerful gloves on each hand, I can slap the hell out of my rogues gallery, which include Pete the Pervert, RoboGOAT, and the Infamous Marvin.


    If I were a superhero, I’d be Be-Polite-On-Public-Transit Man. I would be impervious to bullets, knives, and blunt objects, which would be very helpful, given what I’m about to tell total strangers about themselves and what they are doing and what they should be doing instead. Oh, and some limited-use Professor X mental power to get them to engage in deep self reflection and stop being rude.

  3. Seeing as how the question this week is my brain’s default state I think I’ll mix things up a bit and share with you the first super hero version of myself I created. Feel free to laugh at what I thought was cool :P.

    I first drew him in second grade. He was called Bigman. He was a giant muscly black guy with a high-top fade (case I thought it was cool at the time) and his power was super strength that he got from a magic medallion he wore on his neck. I revived the character when I was in high school. He became a slimmed down (but still muscular…cause comics :P) guy in a trenchcoat (because I thought they were cool at the time) and a ball cap. He still had super strength from the medallion but could now fire hadoken type energy blasts after encountering and fighting a parallel version of himself.

  4. Question of the week!

    This one is easy, I’d love the superpower of “think before I speak”. It’d be like bullet-time, but would give me time to process how what I want to say will be perceived. This would probably have saved me a multitude of awkward and strained moments in my life.

    On the other hand though, I’ve probably lost a few friendship I lasted realized I didn’t need over this, so maybe it’s not such a useful power after all?
