Superheroes Who Should Get Their Own Games

So I'm not exactly referring to fighting games like Injustice: Gods Among Us or Marvel vs. Capcom, but games that are open world. And just to be clear, Batman and Spider-Man won't be making this list because they've had lots of games. I love the Arkham series myself but this take is about superheroes who haven't gotten games yet (or have ones that are failures).

Flash

Traveling freely around the city at super speed sounds like a lot of fun. You could also have the ability to vibrate through walls. Maybe during battles with other speedsters, you could also have the opportunity to steal your opponent's speed by tapping buttons you see on the screen (and the opposite would happen if you fail).

The game could also be more story-driven where you have the option to go back in time and change events, but with unexpected results (similar to Life is Strange). There are many more possibilities.

Green Lantern Corps

This could have elements from many different genres in it. You could have the option roam around the galaxy freely and visit many different planets. The missions could be similar to an RPG in outer space. Perhaps you could play as an existing Green Lantern or just create your own one.

Silver Surfer

This would be the hardest to develop on this list since his powers are so immense that he can destroy planets and create black holes, build anything he wants in a snap, travel light years in seconds, and even travel trough time. The world they would have to make for this would have to be ridiculously huge.

Aquaman

A game that's mostly set in the water where you may or may not fight giant monsters sounds fun, but we can't really say if it'll be good. This has happened before and some of them were disappointments, but I'd still be interested in playing a game about Atlantis and its civilization.

Green Arrow

A game that focuses a lot on archery and a little bit of close combat where there's also a lot of acrobatics... Isn't that similar to Tomb Raider?

Yes... But in the city. Sound fun? Meh? Nope?

You'd have many different kinds of arrows in this. Different ones for different enemies. It could potentially be a first person game too, but I think that's a bad idea. Because unlike guns, arrows take a lot longer to reload.

Wonder Woman

This game would work best as a beat 'em up in my opinion. Perhaps you could get to play on both Themyscira and on Earth, but it would focus heavily on combat with multiple enemies at once. You also have a lot at your disposal, like your lasso which you can use to drag enemies towards you (or tie them up), or the tiara which works well for ranged attacks. Maybe you'd have to manually use your bracelets to deflect bullets, but it shouldn't be that hard... right?

Doctor Strange

Yeah, so this game is going to be very trippy. Just like I mentioned with some of the previous ones, it could work in many different ways but something similar to Bioshock Infinite would be good. You'd get to create portals to other dimensions and travel to whichever one you want at any time. There would be cases where the plot even requires you to do it.

Potential Success

Daredevil

Now, this could be a really fun game about a trained martial artist who's a lawyer by day and a masked vigilante by night. He also has really good senses and can sense anyone who's near him, and is skilled acrobat who regularly climbs rooftops. What could possibly go wrong?

Um, I don't know; the fact that he's blind?

This would be a really awesome game but I feel we wouldn't get the full experience if we can see stuff that the protagonist cannot. But that's just not practical since video games are obviously very visual. However, here's something for you to know.

Fun fact: Daredevil's radar sense is better than Spider-Man's spider-sense.

So the mechanic could involve us only being able to see what he's able to sense. The rest of the screen could just be faintly black?

I'm still not completely sure about this one. Maybe we should wait until we have better technology?

Are there any you feel that deserve their own games? Feel free to post below :)

  • Flash wouldn't work for the same reason recent Sonic games haven't - just moving around fast isn't good as the central mechanic for a game. Sonic games of yore were fun because it was about solving puzzles and overcoming obstacles in each level. The nearest equivalent I could think of would be Sonic CD where you had to travel through time to find and destroy objects in the past in order to make the future version of each level better... it would be too rudimentary by modern standards to do Flash justice.

    Daredevil could reproduce his 'radar' by making it look like Superhot or maybe the killing frenzy levels in Wet... at least for the action sequences. I don't think the world is ready for a game that takes permanently in an altered visual effect, the rest of the time we'd need to have 'normal' graphics for story sequences.

    Both Green Lantern and Doctor Strange would both require fanciful worlds and lots of mind-bending puzzles and abilities. Doctor Strange in particular would probably be a lot like Psychonauts was.

  • "Flash"
    Would have to be seriously nerfed to be doable. Perhaps TV series flash could work but with less cringe (I stopped watching that show. Too much to handle.)

    "Green Lantern Corps"
    Extent of power hard to define or measure.

    "Silver Surfer"
    I really don't see this happening if it's something of a traditional RPG or action game. I guess the only thing that can pull off a Silver Surfer (or really any superhero come to think of it) is a Telltaltes-esque purely choice and narrative driven game.

    Silver Surfer's solution applies to all the superheroes in this list except for Daredevil who, considering how he's more grounded in reality (comparably), could pull off a pretty good game actually.

  • The Flash could yield an amazing game. Time is one interesting element to manipulate on gameplay, as countless other titles have proved very successfully.

    Dr. Strange I believe would be a good character for a RPG-inspired game like Deus Ex.

    The only one I'd maybe argue against is the Green Lantern. The most interesting thing about the character is his ability to create anything and his creativity. And that would probably be lost in a game today. Maybe in the future. ;)

    Cool myTake!

  • Most of those had their own game back in the retro days. Aquaman had an N64 game, the Flash was on SNES and Wonderwoman was on SNES too.

    • The problem with Green Lantern and Dr Strange is the scope of powers.
      GL can make anything with his mind, creating that many assets that are useful and balanced in a game is damn hard to do.
      DS powers are more focused, but users will want ALL his powers and that can be hard to balance.
      Wonder Woman game would be awesome!!!

      I prefer Hawkeye over Green Arrow, but yeah!!

    • Funny thing, I started making a Iron Man like game for kicks.
      It's easier than making a Flash game since all IM does is fly and shoot. LOL.

    • You make games too?
      Friend me!!!

  • Green Lantern would be the most open-ended and epic scaling possibilities...
