The second secret wars was also awesome. Doom ripping out Thanos’s spine and his skull was so unbelievably cool.
MCOC (2014) predates the 2015 Secret Wars.

Not a 100% on this but was told creators see some cash from it too. If anyone knows different feel free to correct me.
MCOC is a marvel IP. Just like MCOC is allowed to add champions, marvel can draw from the game to add to it's comics. The 4 part Spider Man animated series is very much like the game. The characters are even encased in a crystal.
