Marvel Super Hero Squad mobilizes for uDraw, 3DS

Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii drawing peripheral gets Comic Combat Nov. 15 while Nintendo handheld receives Infinity Gauntlet with new playable heroes Oct. 11.

Today's theatrical release of Captain America: The First Avenger signals the end of the year's superhero gauntlet as far as films go, but there are still a small handful of spandex-spangled offerings in store for gamers. Two such titles were dated today, as THQ confirmed that Marvel Super Hero Squad: Comic Combat for the uDraw tablet will hit the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii on November 15, while Marvel Super Hero Squad: The Infinity Gauntlet receives a 3DS port on October 11.

The Avengers will assemble on consoles in Comic Combat November 15.

All three versions of Marvel Super Hero Squad: Comic Combat will require THQ's uDraw tablet peripheral, which hit the Wii last November and is set to arrive on the Xbox 360 and PS3 later this year. The stylus-driven game will let players take control of Thor, Iron Man, and other heroes as they try to thwart Dr. Doom's latest schemes. Players will be able to use the stylus to guide their heroes' attacks and create cover, while shaking the tablet itself will be able to spur an in-game earthquake.

Originally released for multiple platforms last November, The Infinity Gauntlet is a family-friendly adaptation of the 1991 Marvel comics crossover in which the mad god Thanos of Titan uses a collection of omnipotence-granting gems to kill half the population of the universe. Besides the expected enhancement of optional 3D visuals, the 3DS version of the game will include four new playable heroes (Captain America, Nova, Black Widow, and She-Hulk) and a pair of new levels where players can step into the villainous boots of Dr. Doom, Magneto, Loki, and the Abomination.

Guiding the main characters with stylus and shaking the u-draw to ''cause an earthquake'' table for gimmick family anyone? It's a shame the (game) series of Supe Hero Squad has been as lack-luster and disappointing as it has,the idea has a ton of potential,you think a game that lets you play as countless marvel characters tied together in an open universe would have the gaming world on the edge of their seat..but sadly so far this series has failed to do that,an epic fail if I may be so blunt.

I don't like it when these kind of characters become 'toony'. This is exactly what happened to the Zelda series.

Isn't this that game based off of that super babies show with the Crazy Taxi music?
