MARVEL VS. CAPCOM: INFINITE Features No X-Men Because Producers Don't Think You Remember Them

Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite looks like a lot of fun, but if you're wondering why there's no sign of the X-Men in the game, it's because producers think you've forgotten them all. Wait, are they serious?

You know how the X-Men star in a popular series of films and the fact both Wolverine and Deadpool have appeared in hit R-Rated movies over the past year or so? Well, none of that is enough to make people remember some of Marvel's most popular and iconic characters if Capcom's Michael Evans is to be believed. In fact, that's why the mutant characters have been totally excluded from the game.
 
It's a baffling explanation and one he originally tried to blame on gameplay decisions before essentially admitting that Marvel pushed to put the focus on characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
 
"We talked with Marvel very closely about their future roadmap, about what's gonna be happening. Your modern Marvel fan, maybe they don't even remember some of the X-Men characters, but they know some of the Guardians characters or Black Panther. You know what I mean? Captain Marvel may seem like a strange pick, but she's fantastic. She fits the gameplay. She fits the story, and they're gonna be really pushing her as a strong female lead all the way up into the movie. We're trying to take everything into account and choose the best characters."

To call this ridiculous would be an understatement but it's just another example of Marvel wanting to keep the X-Men (and Fantastic Four) out of sight and out of mind in order to focus on the characters they hold the film rights to. It's understandable to an extent but definitely not remotely fair on fans. 

So, next time you try to remember who that guy with the claws is or the name of the fella who shoots lasers out of his eyes, don't ask Capcom because they don't remember and neither do you! Apparently.
