Avengers: Endgame is in theaters this week! What does that have to do with videogames? Plenty, because even if there’s no official tie-in game, Marvel’s Thanos/Infinity Stone arcs have been fueling games since the ’90s. With help from two very special Chrises – Comics on Consoles’ Chris Clow, and game-industry legend/Operencia writer Chris Baker – we dig into five games that trace their origins back to The Infinity Gauntlet, after which we wade through gore in Mortal Kombat 11 and Katana Zero, wax nostalgic over the discovery of a secret City of Heroes server, and dig into the classic Capcom games you’d buy a logo-shaped retro console for.
Question of the Week: What’s an unadapted comic book (or comic-book storyline) you’d love to turn into a game?
