It’s a great time to be a comic fan. Between epic game releases and killer theatrical blockbusters, it seems we all have died and gone to geek heaven!
The most recent example is the Marvel edition of Disney Infinity , which capitalizes on the latest figure-based craze (in the vein of Skylanders and Nintendo’s Amiibo ). While the complete roster overall is quite robust, there is only so much room at the top! The folks at the Xbox Wire have made their picks for top five, which you can happily check out below:
- Captain America
- While zipping around Marvel’s Manhattan as air-catching characters such as Iron Man and Spidey is an absolute blast, the star-spangled Avenger is our go-to do-gooder when it comes time to clean up the Big Apple’s crime-choked streets. Whether ricocheting his shield off multiple evildoers from afar or giving a single, up-close foe a face full of patriotic pain, his combat abilities are unmatched.
- After playing through the Spider-Man Play Set with the webslinger and his spandex-clad crew, we thought we’d give Venom a go. Turns out, it really is good to be bad. On top of rivaling the speed, strength, and web-based powers of Spidey, the Symbiote-fueled foe sports a special move that sends out an army of infected tendrils to do his dirty work.
- Don’t let Groot’s lack of guns and gear fool you; from crushing melee moves to devastating ranged attacks, his lethal limbs pack as much power as any shiny, S.H.I.E.L.D.-engineered gadget. While all his attacks are, er, rooted in his ability to use his branches creatively, our favorite sees them snake beneath the surface before popping up to surprise a target.
- As lethal with her blade as she is accurate with her pistol, this assassin-turned-Guardian gets our vote for most versatile on the battlefield. Coupled with her unmatched athletic ability and speed, Gamora’s ranged and up-close skills allow her to pepper baddies from afar with projectiles, before rushing in to finish the job.
- Rocket Raccoon
- The fan-favorite Guardian of the Galaxy begins with just a single gun, but quickly ramps up to become a pint-sized weapon of dual-wielding destruction. His two hand-cannons benefit from a variety of slick upgrades, but the coolest way to unleash the pair is from atop Groot’s shoulders – seriously, it’s worth recruiting a co-op player to form this two-Guardian turret!
While that list is fun and all, I’ll bet the CheatCC readers can do even better! Let us know your Infinity picks (Marvel or otherwise) in the comments section below!
