At one point or another, we’ve all dreamed of becoming a superhero. While having superpowers is out of the question, we could all still become a superhero through videogames. And with the success of the Arkham franchise, the Injustice games, and even the Tell Tale superhero games, there’s little to no doubt that the next medium for the comic book/superhero genre to dominate is the videogame realm. The sad part about this, though, is that there are few successful comic book video games in the market, despite the existence of the aforementioned properties and the expected success of the Spider-man game. On that note, we here at geekendgladiators.com have come up with our own list of superheroes who deserve their own video game titles, and also a possible game play for their respective video games.

We’ve been a week removed from Marvel’s latest Summer Event, Secret Empire. While the event drew both raves and criticisms for making a beloved hero, Captain America/Steve Rogers, into the Supreme Leader of Hydra, one cannot deny the fact that the event was a just a joy to read, ultimately making it one of the more memorable events in Marvel Comics since Civil War.

In the second half of Game of Thrones Season 7, the focus now shifts towards the much-anticipated war between the living and the dead, as Night King’s forces are inching their way south. As it appears, our heroes have an uphill battle when it comes to defeating the white walkers with the lack of available dragon glass.

Here’s the remaining Valyrian steel, and the characters who currently wield them. Continue reading “All the Valyrian Steel We Know (so far) In Game of Thrones and Who Wields Them”
