X-Men in Video Games

As we look towards the Mike Carey-written X-Men: Destiny in late 2011, Comicdom Wrecks! takes a look back at the history of the X-Men in video games.  From the good (X-Men 2: Clone Wars) to the bad (X-Men: The Official Game) to the unspeakably horrible (Uncanny X-Men), we’ll hit every X-Men-centered game…and maybe introduce you to a couple you didn’t even know existed.
