How the Institutional Racism of Yesterday Still Reverberates Today
Thanks to info leaked at the tail end of last month, most people closely following the progress of Marvel Vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds already know who you have to face at the end of Capcom's hyper-anticipated 3-on-3 fighting crossover title.
In case you managed to avoid those spoilers however, Capcom has just issued an announcement to make things official: MvC3's big baddie is none other than that goat-eyed, purple skirt wearin', Pope-hat-style-bitin', planet eater Galactus.
Don't know the man? You can have a look at his entry on Marvel Comics' official wiki or you can watch the below video direct from Marvel Vs. Capcom 3. Though I will warn you, ahead there be spoilers
I'm really loving the appropriate feeling of epic grandeur that Capcom has instilled in that fight. I mean, not only does Galactus eat planets, but he's often been described as Jack Kirby's vision of capital-G God for the Marvel universe. The fact that he views the fight as an annoyance, just casually drops 185-hit combos, and talks shit about the Fantastic Four is just so spot on. Yet another gold star for Capcom.
Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 hits shelves on February 15.
