Marvel vs. Capcom 3 trailers for Magneto and MODOK

Posted by Jonathan 'Catalyst' Grey • October 9, 2010 at 9:53 a.m. PDT
Marvel held their panel today at New York Comic-Con 2010. They formally announced that Magneto and MODOK will be joining the other cast members of Marvel vs. Capcom 3, and added a few minor notes about the game.

Hit the link below for three gameplay videos of the most recently announced cast members and to see a bunch of screen shots and some artwork.


Click images for larger versions

Here are higher resolution versions of the screen shots and artwork that were shown yesterday for Magneto and MODOK.


• It was stated that Blade and Mojo wouldn't be playable characters.

• You'll see off-the-wall characters cameos in the endings, Blade, Mojo, Ghost Rider, Kingpin and others.

• While Doctor Doom and Wesker assembled a cast of villains that could destroy both Capcom and Marvel's worlds, a greater threat arises during the process. This might be Dormammu, as hinted at in previous trailers.

Thanks to Luna for contributing to this story.

Interesting. Looks like MODOK always has fly activated.

Magneto doesn't sound evil enough in my opinion.

Hrm said on October 9, 2010 at 9 a.m.

Magneto's voice sounds familiar.
Modok's video was taken down.

Why has the second vid Have been removed ohh well ummm kinda of upset that magneto is in the game but overall the game looks balance and looking forward to kicking his @$$ with Chris, Wesker and arthur after the pain and torment he gave me in marvel vs capcom 2 online ^_^.

MODOK.........................

BalrogWill said on October 9, 2010 at 9:03 a.m.

Always thought MODOK was the stupidest villain. Little upset he's in the game. Hopefully my mind will be changed after the video is back up.

I wonder how cheap fagnus aka magneto is gonna be.

#11
DudeMeister said on October 9, 2010 at 9:04 a.m.

no wonder they have taken modok's video down, that character is an abomination.
seriously capcom(and marvel), why pick such a stupid character? almost any other marvel character would've been better.

#12
Hrm said on October 9, 2010 at 9:05 a.m.

I just really don't know what to think about Modok.

#13
BalrogWill said on October 9, 2010 at 9:06 a.m.

@xLuna

I think what you're seeing is a quick cut of a combo on Tron and a hyper combo on Dante.

Am I the only one that think MODOK looks kinda broken.Look at the moves he has...

#16
Otter_of_Death said on October 9, 2010 at 9:09 a.m.

Video is back up again.

I don't really have an opinion on MODOK yet. I still can't really believe he made the cut. Looking at the new footage of him is kinda surreal.

#17
joker101 said on October 9, 2010 at 9:10 a.m.

@9: I noticed that too, she lost a bar AND Dante got swapped in immediately. Not sure what happened.

Mags a little on the slow side. And MODOK looks unique as hell.

#18
Syl said on October 9, 2010 at 9:12 a.m.

Did Ian McKellen dubbed Magneto?
He really sounds like him.

#19
joker101 said on October 9, 2010 at 9:12 a.m.

@BalrogWill: watch it again, it looks like they swapped meters, followed by MODOK using a super.

#20
h1tm0nl33 said on October 9, 2010 at 9:12 a.m.

OK i may not be able to say M.O.D.O.K looks good from a gameplay standpoint but his theme kicks ass, as for magneto he sure is looking top teir.

#21
Teapo said on October 9, 2010 at 9:13 a.m.

There we have it he is very unique and looks like an interesting trap character. Thats almost all I could ask for except some sort of button that stops people from saying a character is overpowered based on a few clips showing their strenghts.

#22
kirbykirbykirby said on October 9, 2010 at 9:13 a.m.

The classic xmen arcade game is coming to psn and xbl! Its pure classic! Oh and ill watch the videos sorry about that i got to excited =D

#23
bmfuller433 said on October 9, 2010 at 9:13 a.m.

Am I the only one that wants the Red Hulk in this game?

#24
joker101 said on October 9, 2010 at 9:14 a.m.

Sorry, meant to put this in my previous comment: watch how MODOK's meter goes from 2 to 4 to 3.

#25
Darts said on October 9, 2010 at 9:14 a.m.

Jesus, just imagine all the crap flying around when Arthur and M.O.D.O.K. fight.
It's gonna be fun on a bun

#26
CloudRunner89 said on October 9, 2010 at 9:16 a.m.

That is no way in hell Ian McKellen. I think it's the same voice actor who did Seth's ENG dub in sf4.

#27
puertorican12187 said on October 9, 2010 at 9:16 a.m.

You know the best part?

MODOK single-handedly debunks every single "leaked character roster list".

#28
Teapo said on October 9, 2010 at 9:16 a.m.

Whoa stop the meter stealing train! If you look at the video the timer goes from 62 2 55 and no snap back occurs meaning that is a different clip.

#29
JMJ_Th3_Wik3d said on October 9, 2010 at 9:17 a.m.

@9 @19 yeah MODOK did swap tron bonne for dante I watch at 20 time is did a move called Mind Pulse or something and and tron bonne health was the same exact health as dante when he was out the match hmmm MODOK is strange but very promising. Very interesting character for MVC3

#30
CloudRunner89 said on October 9, 2010 at 9:18 a.m.

@bmfuller433: Rulk would be quite amazing.

#31
Teapo said on October 9, 2010 at 9:19 a.m.

Also his health is lower. Too many details say that nothing is being stolen and it is just editing.

Ghost Rider is an "off the wall cameo"? He should've been in the game.

Yes! Magneto back with his X-men vs Street Fighter theme. Oh and for those who are wondering, the VA of Magneto is Tom Kane (voiced Magneto in Wolverine and the X-men cartoon).

#36
Aejis said on October 9, 2010 at 9:22 a.m.

@#9 xLuna
Holy sh**!

#37
FroggyMan77 said on October 9, 2010 at 9:23 a.m.

Didn't Seth say they were having trouble balancing MODOK? I really hope he's not top tier with all those shields and such. If I'm going to see he same person every time I play online, I don't want it to be this ass-face.

All of the other reveals were pretty good, though. I never played Ghosts ' Goblins, but Arthur's playstyle seems interesting. Spencer seems like a higher-tier Spider-Man and Magneto is more balanced, it seems.

#38
Adnan said on October 9, 2010 at 9:24 a.m.

M.O.D.O.K's theme reminds me of Ghostbusters :o Anyways, even though most comic book fans hate him, I kinda always like MODOK...although it's mainly due to how ridiculous he looks. Regardless, he looks pretty awesome so far. His opening quote was made of so much cheese though lol. Magneto's look good too. His voice...will take a little getting used to, imo.

Arthur, Spencer, M.O.D.O.K, and Magneto...definitely the most interesting set of reveals so far...

#39
DOAisBetter said on October 9, 2010 at 9:25 a.m.

Can't wait til more info on Magneto comes out. Hopefully he is super fast like MvC2, there is a good chance but that video has very little movement. MODOK looks just like Petshop from JoJo's but I doubt he will be that broken.

#40
Temo said on October 9, 2010 at 9:27 a.m.

well, that video shows that MODOK isnt a failure, like some people actually stated, way beforeseeing any footage. He looks quite decent, and alittle bit on the mid to top tier. Flying all the time is definitely an advantage.

#41
cadnexus said on October 9, 2010 at 9:27 a.m.

Cool, they changed maneto's air combo and voice acting is better-sounds like Patrick Stewart(I know it's not him.)
MODOK is definitely the crazy broken character, he feels somewhat awkward, but sort of interesting. Why worry how broken Magneto would be MODOK is much more broken, look at the combo he does near the end--it's very cheap and broken. And a 98 hit combo and pooping out glowing triangles, this character will be very cheap. For some reason, it would seem fit to put either Urien or Gill in the game to balance MODOK off.

#42
bmfuller433 said on October 9, 2010 at 9:29 a.m.

It seems like all the characters hold some promise. Spidey and spencer kicks waaayyyyyy too much ass

#43
SmokeRulz said on October 9, 2010 at 9:30 a.m.

I wonder if MODOK is that "holy crap insane" Marvel character that Seth was hyping a few times.

#44
Blackapino1984 said on October 9, 2010 at 9:30 a.m.

Spencer is pretty slick in that gameplay vid

#45
joker101 said on October 9, 2010 at 9:30 a.m.

Ha, damn Capcom editing tricked me.

#46
Teapo said on October 9, 2010 at 9:32 a.m.

From what we have seen Spidey zip to you from full screen at any angle combo into web swing combo out of web swing into a launcher air combo into web swin air combo out to a dunk then use an assist to pick you up and go riight back into a launcher or just go for the hyper web throw. Just because we don't have videos of the highest level of execution/creativity/we have seen 2 videos of Spencer doesn't mean we can easily guess how characters will fall in tiers so far. Lets chill and say things for some characters look powerful, easy to start, or effective at certain times. I hate to keep going back to the same reference but if MvC2 got these videos for every character we would be saying Juggernaut ruins the game forever due to 3 hits into level 1 super = ko. However his all around game which was discovered in actual gameplay really hurt him overall.

#47
Death_Insurance said on October 9, 2010 at 9:32 a.m.

It looks like Modok's 98 hit super was a counter to what Trish was trying to do. Being that he said "Nice Power!" and it looks like a juiced up Super of the other beam super he had. Maybe her projectile gave him a power boost or something?

#48
bmfuller433 said on October 9, 2010 at 9:33 a.m.

I hate when people start talkin about tiers....What happen to fun? I played wit Charlie, Guile and Akuma on MvC2...Not cuz I was really good, it was becuz it s was fun!!! any way

DUDLEY 4 MvC3!!!

#49
gam3fr33k said on October 9, 2010 at 9:33 a.m.

How many characters have they revealed so far? and lol...are they allowed to have Spencer saying "get over here!" when he does that move?

#50
JMJ_Th3_Wik3d said on October 9, 2010 at 9:34 a.m.

@44 Before you go on a tangent look at the 3rd gameplay. MODOK beam isnt overpowerd

#51
Helios86 said on October 9, 2010 at 9:35 a.m.

Wow. How could they make such a vaunted character of not only the fighting series but of the marvel universe so... horrible in this new iteration? Horrible new theme music, horrible new voice actor, they KILLED Magneto. Yes, we all wanted him back in MvC3 but we didn't want him piss poorly done. Not to mention that second rate chosen-at-random-from-names-in-a-hat selection of MODOK. WHO the hell decided he'd make a good choice? Both Capcom and Marvel are seriously starting to disappoint.

#52
GhostTear said on October 9, 2010 at 9:35 a.m.

Why did MODOK do a 98 hit special and in the gameplay vid did only 48?

#53
cadnexus said on October 9, 2010 at 9:37 a.m.

to: bmfuller433 #25
No, you are not the only one who wants RED HULK. I was expecting him because they said something about showing current Marvel Characters. People would say he's like the Hulk, but the funny thing is he's actually 100% different other than super strength. Red HULK is more different than Green Hulk, compare to X-23 to Wolverine (different genders but the same exact powers). Red and Green Hulk powers are completely different other than Super strength. Just saying that if someone else read this..

#54
Death_Insurance said on October 9, 2010 at 9:37 a.m.

@Comment 56 as I stated it looks like when the shield absorbed Trish's projectile it gave him a power boost or something.

#55
Masose said on October 9, 2010 at 9:37 a.m.

Anyone notice that when Magneto laughed when he activated his lvl 3 super, that he sounds like seth?

this is lame

SHOGUN said on October 9, 2010 at 9:41 a.m.

I've always though Mag sounded like Beavis from Beavis and Butthead, so this is an improvement. He should always sound like a refined old man with delusions of grandeur.

Wonder what color and texture alts he'll get.

#59
Teapo said on October 9, 2010 at 9:41 a.m.

I was gonna say the same thing as Death_Insurance. It looks like the shield powers up that gem on his forhead which makes his beams more effective

#60
JMJ_Th3_Wik3d said on October 9, 2010 at 9:42 a.m.

@55 obviously you haven't been listening to the character want list hmmm dude don't buy the freaking game since your having a betch momment right now T_T

#61
Dan_CiTi said on October 9, 2010 at 9:44 a.m.

Magneto DOESN'T sound like Seth...not the same voice. The voice they chose for Mags is the popular one, sounds like he sounds in most cartoons I think. His level 3 looks like Zero's from TvC, just more broken.

#62
zUkUu said on October 9, 2010 at 9:45 a.m.

how many are revealed so far?

#63
Otter_of_Death said on October 9, 2010 at 9:45 a.m.

You know MODOK isn't a huge surprise considering that Marvel has been using him a recent series of stop-motion comedy vids. They're pretty fun to watch, actually.

Magneto isn't evil anymore.

#66
TheDarkDevice said on October 9, 2010 at 9:47 a.m.

M.O.D.O.K. is not the broken character. It's a ruse... the shield won't be very effective on rush down characters that get passed his projectiles and his health is sub par at best.

Doom? M.O.D.O.K.? Deadpool? Limited Marvel ladies?

The Anti-Life, The Destroyer of All That Breathes... I'm betting on Squirrel Girl.

Osbjorn said on October 9, 2010 at 9:47 a.m.

I get so stick of reading these comments with people saying "oh derp! MODOK lookz SO Broken yo" Honestly you people said the same about almost every single reveal, dante, deadpool, super skrull, dormammu, These are not the final builds all the characters will be balenced to an extent, and if not we will get an update. Also I heard this game is getting pushed back to summer 2011

This is great, lol!)

I'm already loving MODOK's background music.

#70
TheDarkDevice said on October 9, 2010 at 9:48 a.m.

P.S. Also, Mags is slower so he will not be broken.

26 so far.

#72
jme said on October 9, 2010 at 9:49 a.m.

can some explain to me why when spencer goes on the other side of the screen his arm changes? I thought It was fixed on one arm

#73
SHOGUN said on October 9, 2010 at 9:49 a.m.

MODOK might just be the new Sentinel.

To all the haters, complainers, trolls, and douch bags complaining about Magneto after ALL THESE YEARS gets what they want, and to all the haters complaining about Spencer and MODOK. This is what I have to say to you.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CB3coG...

Why, because we don't care. Can't wait for MvC3

#77
solacracy said on October 9, 2010 at 9:56 a.m.

Since noone has noticed how MODOK's laser hyper move works, it looks like he has some sort of charge system like dormammmu, in the character trailer when he does it, his forehead was glowing purple, and he said max power, in the gameplay there was no glow and he just shot a lazer, kthxbai

#78
WASSHOI said on October 9, 2010 at 9:56 a.m.

@#70
If Squirrel Girl was in the game, your screen would say "YOU WIN!" even if you lose. Squirrel Girl will give a thumbs up to the player.

#79
Edgethio said on October 9, 2010 at 9:57 a.m.

On the MODOK super, it could also be it is stronger if he shoots it through the triangle (sounds like he says "max power" not "nice power" to me).

#80
solacracy said on October 9, 2010 at 9:59 a.m.

Also, his magical triangles were bigger depending on his forehead glow :D

#81
Edgethio said on October 9, 2010 at 10 a.m.

@81 yeah, the forehead is glowing before the shot from Trish so it was something previous. Could be a charged up move or possibly something he can do when he's the last guy left?

#82
roarmonster said on October 9, 2010 at 10 a.m.

i think MODOK looks sick, but honestly i didnt want magneto back.
its gonna be hard to balance him without getting all the MvC2 players that loved him to not bitch

but hey, game looks sick. I personally LOVE MODOK and arthur and all these other characters that promise to give a pretty unique play style

so far the only characters that im going to worry about are dante and X-23

#83
bmfuller433 said on October 9, 2010 at 10:01 a.m.

This game is gonna be AWESOME!!!!!!

And Spencer looks pretty cool.

#85
juanrock said on October 9, 2010 at 10:03 a.m.

it seems modok will be a really anoying character to fight against, cant wait to try this game, too bad in my country i have to wait until its release because we dont have game conventions of any kind

#86
akumous said on October 9, 2010 at 10:03 a.m.

Magneto's voice sounds like Seth. Is it possible the same voice actor that did Seth also voiced Magneto?..

#87
solacracy said on October 9, 2010 at 10:03 a.m.

yeah, i watched the gameplay video to see when the fore head charge happens, after his first laser super, he drops a triangle then says "analyzing ...." and i light goes from spencer to his forehead, its definitely similar to doramammus system

#88
zUkUu said on October 9, 2010 at 10:04 a.m.

modok looks like a turtle bitch and magneto seems as good as he was in mvc3.

what does arthurs armor do?

#89
ANewChallenger said on October 9, 2010 at 10:07 a.m.

I'm surprised people want Rulk. That was hands down the dumbest effing comic book storyline in YEARS.

#90
Edgethio said on October 9, 2010 at 10:07 a.m.

FIGURED IT OUT! It's the move where he says, "Anaylize Juice" that charges MODOK's forehead. His forehead glows when he does that move. He hits Tron with it twice in his trailer, once right before the cut to him hitting Dante' with the super so you don't get to see it well, then again towards the end but the camera pans up and you don't get to see it well again. But it's there.

#91
DestinyZX1 said on October 9, 2010 at 10:08 a.m.

Magneto is awesome especially with his Lv3 Gravity Squeeze... amazing. MODOK is purely awesome especially with a Hyper Combo that reaches 98 hits... can it pass 100 maybe I don't know but I'm liking it.

#92
solacracy said on October 9, 2010 at 10:10 a.m.

@94

Yep, it looks like that analyzing move spawns a blue projectile that if it hits gives him a charge, the charge has only 2 levels (red, purple) and they power up his specials, but he loses charge when he does a super.

#93
juanrock said on October 9, 2010 at 10:14 a.m.

@Osbjorn

40+ characters? thats crazy awesome, are you sure there will be that many?

#94
roarmonster said on October 9, 2010 at 10:15 a.m.

and by the way what Magneto says at the begining, in my opinion, shows that in the story he will probably be fighting as a third party, but will probably fight against the other bad guys because he wants to keep the world alive so it can be the way he wants it

#95
Edgethio said on October 9, 2010 at 10:15 a.m.

@96
Yup.

No charge = 22 hits
1 charge = 48 hits
full charge = 98 hits

#96
Samo832 said on October 9, 2010 at 10:15 a.m.

Is that the actor who played the real magneto playing his voice?

#97
DestinyZX1 said on October 9, 2010 at 10:16 a.m.

Yeah. I hope they at least balance Magneto so that way he don't go back to what he was in MvC2.

#98
ThatRandomGamerGuy said on October 9, 2010 at 10:18 a.m.

M.O.D.O.K , Dormammu, Trish
Team= keep away!!!!!

I am not to sure about Modok yet.

#99
solacracy said on October 9, 2010 at 10:20 a.m.

So i heard...Arthur, V-Joe, Felicia = Smallest Team Ever.
