Magneto’s Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Suit is Again a Royal Pain for Spain
About six years ago, Marvel needed to give Magneto a uniform befitting a head of state for his appearance in The Pulse: House of M Special. It was, as that image above suggests, a straight copy of the duds King Juan Carlos wears as World’s Most Interesting Man Captain General of the Armies. The royal house protested to Marvel, there was an apology and a resolution, and that was allegedly that.
Well, like all great comic book clashes, this one has returned when everyone least expected it. Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 has included Magneto in that uniform as one of the skins in its downloadable content offerings, which began on Tuesday. And so, again, Zarzuela Palace has to get involved and ask the purveyors of such vulgar arts to stop appropriating royal symbols for sale to the masses.
