NYCC 2015: Bricks Will Fly in LEGO Marvel’s Avengers Videogame!

Why are LEGO superhero videogames so much fun? Like Batman ’66, perhaps, they allow kids to take things seriously and inoffensively while winking like crazy at the adult audience. From the old PS2 Roms of the Lego games, to all the new ones based on the Marvel movies. At their heart, perhaps, superheroes are both inspiring and ridiculous, and somehow Telltale Studios manages to strike the right balance, while getting to the core of the characters. In a weird way, Marvel’s Superhero Squad did the same thing, making the battle of good versus evil safe for the whole family. We’re down with that.
