Bendis Wrote Defunct The Avengers Video Game - And He Has A Copy


1417 Back in September, video and images made their way on to the net about an Avengers video game from THQ.

The game was a first person shooter that saw The Avengers assembling against the likes of the Skrulls. 

At the time, the game was said to be a tie-in for the movie, which seemingly gave further evidence that the Skrulls were Loki's alien army. Of course, we know better now.

Over 200 people had invested 18 months into the game, but the studio behind the game went belly-up, and THQ pulled the plug.

Now, we learn that Marvel Comics scribe, and current writer behind the Marvel MMO, Brian Michael Bendis, was behind The Avengers tie-in video game.

"The one that haunts me is that I was writing the Avengers game - the THQ game that got canceled," Bendis told Game Informer Magazine in an interview with fellow Avengers Vs. X-Men architects. "I have a copy of it at the house, and it was a great looking game.

"It was a fully immersed Avengers game and the world will never see it.

"It was a point of view game, which was different than most super hero games, but you could play the game from the POV of Hulk, Iron Man, Captain America, and Thor, and you could play the game co-op with four of your friends, so you could build an Avengers team and unlock players."

Ed Brubaker then questioned Bendis asking if Hawkeye was a playable character as well, with Bendis affirming, "Yeah, it was super cool."

Here are a bunch of concept images from the game:
