This is a not for profit fan site based on the PC game Marvel Heroes. If you’re not a fan of the game or Marvel superhero comics or movies then it may not mean much to you!

The Adventures of Punchclops was created while I was playing Marvel Heroes, the excellent online multiplayer action role playing game set in the Marvel Universe (think Diablo with superheroes!).

It occurred to me that it could be a bit of silly fun to see how terrible it would be to try playing a superhero without using any of his super powers! Cyclops was the obvious choice as he had a rather impressive “Trained Punch” ability to use instead of all that messy eye blast business.

To my surprise Cyclops turned out to be quite playable using only his punch to attack the bad guys and thus Punchclops was born!

I started detailing my findings in a post on the official Marvel Heroes forum and discovered that a number of people found it to be quite entertaining. I then added a few screenshots to prove that Punchclops was actually surviving the fights I was talking about.

While snoozing lightly on my train ride to work one morning I suddenly realised I could create a webcomic. I thought I’d be able to come up with enough dumb ideas for at least two or three issues. It turned out that I have way more dumb ideas than I could ever have imagined!

Thanks go to:

  • Gazillion – for creating a fun game packed with superheroes that I have loved for as long as I can remember.
  • The forum regulars – for being incredibly supportive of my crazy ideas.
  • The devs – who managed to animate so much emotion into just a few different moves in the game.
  • Stan Lee – for creating so much of this whole crazy Marvel Universe and just for being himself.
