I think Comix Zone may have been a great game for its time that was too far ahead of its time. Had it come after the rise of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, this game might have been better remember and more celebrated today.

It probably also hurt that Comix Zone came out very late in the Genesis/Mega Drive’s life cycle, at a point when Sega was already gearing up for the ultimately ill-fated Saturn console.
