Wolverine Playing Cards Over the years superhero games have hit the market with a real bang! So brace yourselves, folks, for a roller-coaster ride full of excitement, fun, and some really great titles featuring Spiderman, the Avengers, Batman, the Justice League, and Ant-Man, which are just a few of the superhero releases that have recently appeared in the gaming arena. It all started with the original 2000 X-Men movie and has now extended to many online and mobile slots that you can play anytime, anyplace, anywhere.

Step One) Starting the Connection

Some people may say that online games and movies have garnered their recent popularity because of the connections they share with many comic book superheroes. Which I have to agree with, up to a point, but on the whole there's much more to it than that. Back in the mid to late 90s the superhero genre of movie wasn't so hip, and many people attribute this to the flop release of Joel Schumacher's 1997 film, 'Batman and Robin'. But thankfully a rebirth came along in the year 2000 when Bryan Singer gave birth to the X-Men film franchise. A franchise so good, so centered, and so focused with its approach, it endeared the hearts of staunch comic book readers and brought everyone’s attention to the goodness of the superhero characters. A few years later the Sam Raimi Spider-Man series of films finally materialized, starring Tobey Maguire, which provided a perfect balance of comedy, romance, and non-stop action, thus attracting the attention of more mainstream moviegoers.

Step Two) Putting Marvel on the Map

These two superhero movies firmly established Marvel Studios and put them on the cinematic map, especially when they then started to produce other film franchises, like the Hulk, Daredevil, and Ghost Rider, to name but a few, even though they didn't have a strong enough impact than the previous superhero releases.

Step Three) Superhero Slot Games

Once this brand of film became properly recognized it was only a matter of time before they made their way to the gaming arena. Or to be more specific about it, the slot themed gaming arena. By and large these games are generally well liked and praised for their great graphics and superb sound effects, each complemented with a high payout in order for the players to win it big. Superhero backdrops, symbols, and other paraphernalia also make these games very enjoyable to play. Just take a look at Vegas Mobile Casino, and see for yourself how many mobile casino games they have on offer, with most of them based on either a popular movie or a character. A game like Thor, for instance, which was named after the very enjoyable superhero movie, comic book, and God of Thunder!

Step Four) There are Less-Known Heroes Too

The comic book world also has a number of fringe heroes which aren't among the more mainstream ones. A good example of this can be seen in the Kick-Ass film, based on a mini-series created by Mark Millar and John Romita Junior, that likewise has its fair share of comic book fans. Some other recognizable titles include Hellboy, Ladybug, and Ghost Rider, and to some extent they are the reason the list of superhero slot games have been ever expanding. Players can instantly relate to these more down to Earth characters and this acts as instant bait for them to try out these games in trusted online casinos. Have you played any?
