This new era of Marvel video game projects have seen a fair share of comic book support. Special variant covers were made for games like Disney Infinity 3.0 and Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, and Marvel’s Spider-Man received a comic adaptation in the form of Marvel’s Spider-Man: City at War which recounted the events of the game’s story. This was recently joined by Marvel’s Spider-Man: Velocity, another mini-series that started in August that expands the universe of Marvel’s Spider-Man while giving context to a bonus costume made for the purpose of the game. Being added to the list is Marvel’s Avengers: Iron Man, a prologue book set to launch in December in advance of the May 15th release date of Marvel’s Avengers from Square-Enix for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Google Stadia and PC. From Marvel:
