Stan Lee, creator of most of Marvel’s biggest characters, has teamed up with Moonshark to create a new mobile game called Verticus. Stan Lee helped with creation of the Verticus characters and plot and Dallas-based Controlled Chaos Studios developed the game software.
According to Tech Crunch:
The story concerns a group of evil aliens set on destroying the Earth called the Obliterators. The player takes on the role of the hero Verticus, who has to dive through the Earth’s core in order to save the planet. Lee has had cameos in most of Marvel’s films, so he also appears as a character in Verticus, namely the commander who gives Verticus his mission.
The game will launch Fall 2012.
