"I grew up reading comics, watching the horrible SPIDER-MAN cartoon show on TV and trying to draw my own comics with HOW TO DRAW COMICS THE MARVEL WAY," says Levine. "I wasn't very good as an artist, but the 'I wanna make comics' bug stuck with me. After Irrational had some success in game development, it became clear that we might actually get a chance to make this pet project."
Certainly the most exciting aspect of the game is the chance for players to design their own heroes (already generated characters are provided for the lazier players). Levine knows that for many comic book fans, the opportunity to play God will be irresistible.
