Approximately 150 million comic books have been sold in more than 26 countries since their introduction in 1961. Possessing unique powers, the foursome challenge the unknown to benefit humanity. Reed Richards (Mr. Fantastic) becomes malleable, Sue Storm (The Invisible Woman) turns invisible, Johnny Storm (The Human Torch) generates fiery plasma and Ben Richards (The Thing) is orange-colored, thick-skinned, heavily muscled and superhumanly strong.

First launched in 1963, the Iron Man character has been featured in approximately 120 million comic books in more than 26 countries around the world. After billionaire genius Tony Stark was gravely injured by an act of industrial sabotage, he saved his own life by designing a life-sustaining shell – the hi-tech armor that is the invincible Iron Man. This modern-day knight fights injustice wherever it rears its ugly head. De games worden momenteel ontwikkeld voor zowel de consoles als pc.
