    Default Marvel games for NES

    Can someone help me compile a list of all Marvel Comics games for the NES? I'm not sure how many were made. I'm a big Marvel fan, so I've been looking for these games to add to my collection. This is what I have/can think of.

    X-Men
    Captain America and the Avengers
    The Punisher
    Silver Surfer
    Wolverine
    Spider-Man
    Spider-Man: Return of the Sinister Six

    I still need the Wolvy and Spidey games. But are there anymore?
    Looking to buy: Galerians disc 2 (PSX) and The Unholy War case/manual (PSX). PM me!

    Well, if you want to get technical I know G.I. Joe comics were done by Marvel...and there are a couple G.I. Joe games for the NES. OH YEAH!! Barbie comics were done by Marvel Have fun with those games! And there was a short lived Star Trek series as well...if you want to count those games in as well.

    Nothing else comes to mind...although I bet there are probably more.

    And I have loose copies of Wolvie and Spider Man / Sinister Six...they aren't in mint condition...but if you are interested...just PM me

    You may not want to pay with money for x-men. It's pretty bad.

    There's only one Spiderman game for Nes. Spiderman vs the Sinister Six. And boy, the Marvel Nes games are some of the most terrible games ever made for that platform. Well Captain America isn't too bad, but it's still kind of mediocre.

    I wish Capcom had the Spiderman license during the Nes days. i could picture them making a decent game using the Bionic Commando engine to swing around buildings.

    Oh hell yeah. What I am waiting for is another Bionic COmmando game with the current gen systems! Hopefully it would come out for the GC if it did. I am already mad that conker is only for the box.

    According to IGN's game database, there's also a game called simply Spider-Man.

    There was only one Spidey game for the NES. IGN terribly neglects the old systems in their database. From what I recall, they often put the same game in ther database twice with mistakes like "the game" and "thegame".

    As for the games themselves, I really loved Wolverine and Spidey for the NES. However, the idea of Capcom making them is awesome! They really could have made an awesome Spidey game.

    Bloody stupid IGN. I do hate their database. I have a number of games they don't even have listed. Can you believe they don't have Asteroids for the Atari 400? Asteroids! x_x

    I wish I could make my own and have it look as nice as IGN's looks. That's the only thing they really have going for them.

    Along those same lines, Marvel also published Star Wars comics, so you can include the SW and Empire Strikes Back games too. And Conan: Mysteries of Time

    Of course, I'm talking about original Marvel Comics characters, though I'm sure you all knew that.

    So, there were no others that anyone can think of? No FF, or Hulk, or maybe Iron Man? As many NES games as there are, I kinda figured there'd be more Marvel ones.

    I don't think Marvel Comics were as big in the 80's as they are now. Also, there were a handful of strong licenses that just weren't turned into NES games, perhaps because some companies still had cold feet after the video game crash of 1984. Some examples include He-Man, Voltron, Thundercats, and (in the US) Transformers. There was at least one Famicom Transformers game, but we should all thank our lucky stars it wasn't released here.
