1992 Character Updates (1992)

By the 1992 Character Updates for the Gamer’s Handbook of the Marvel Universe, the paradigm shift was nearly complete. Nearly all the art in the book, and most of the new characters for sure, reflect the dominance that Rob Liefeld during this time. Everyone has weird long legs and distorted proportions and pouches. Bishop and Omega Red and Shatterstar, woof. It looks horribly dated now, but then, I dunno, I can see why this was the last volume, and why the Marvel Super Heroes game faded in the wake of this — one was fresh and new, one felt old and dusty. Nick Fury is on the cover, for Pete’s sake! RIP, I guess. It was fun while it lasted.
