Matt Fraction To Write Iron Man 2… Game

Matt Fraction, comic writer on such great comics as “Last Of The Independents”, “Casanova” and “The Immortal Iron Fist” – as well as lesser known books like “Uncanny X-Men” and “The Invincible Iron Man” – will be creating the all-new story for cross-platform game “Iron Man 2”:

“Iron Man 2 presented me with the challenge and opportunity to work with both  SEGA and Marvel on creating something wholly unique- a story that exists at the cross-roads of the comic I write, the film universe which I was lucky enough to be asked to contribute to, and a wholly- immersive interactive experience like a game’ says Fraction. “A game presents an entirely new challenge, where the audience/consumer/player engages with the world, with the big and small aspects of the place and characters. They’re a co-conspirator in the narrative. I hope it’s as exciting and challenging to play as it was to write.”

Matt Fraction is a great, solid writer, and it’s cool to see him getting a bit of widespread success, so it’ll be interesting to see what comes out of this. Mind you, Marvel franchise games have always been a sketchy proposition, and their success or failure is almost always nothing to do with the writing on them, so we’ll have to see if the gameplay and production on the game does Mr Fraction justice.
