Team-ups come to Marvel Heroes

Marvel Team-Up was a comic book published from 1972 to 1985. Now it's a feature in Marvel Heroes. Developer Gazillion said yesterday that Team-Ups will let players fight with two heroes against supervillains. Four heroes will be available in the first wave: Falcon (who made three appearances in the comic book); Magik of the X-Men (and Colossus' sister); Firestar, created for the 1980s TV show Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends; and, of course, Spider-Man himself, who starred throughout Marvel Team-Up's 13-year run. Team-Ups will offer three different playing styles, allowing them to fight alongside players or protect them from off screen. The heroes all have their own distinct power sets.
