The LEGO effect has benefited many a popular fiction franchise since 2005, from Star Wars to Jurassic Park to Harry Potter. Throughout that time, though, there’s arguably been no better fit for the Danish toy brand than Marvel.
With the comic giant’s peerless roster of colourful characters, developer Traveller’s Tales has the perfect canvass on which to paint. It can’t hurt that many of those characters have been revitalised through recent TV and cinema treatments, either.
All of this feeds into the tasty pop culture gumbo that is LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2, in which you can swing around Manhattan as Spidey, clobber Surtur as Thor (male or female), and manipulate time as Dr Strange from within a single open world environment.More info.
