Capcom's 2D sprite work from the '90s remains as perhaps the most iconic art of the whole genre, and that goes doubly so for their interpretations of Marvel characters.

There's no excuse for excluding the X-Men this time if there really is a new Marvel fighting game currently in development

Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite's tournament scene has been seeing impressive growth despite complications in the early years

Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite could be seen as the black sheep of the Marvel vs. Capcom series.
