Thanos Hyper Combo Wallpaper!

It boggles my mind to think that I haven't already posted Thanos wallpaper!!!

This image is from the first page of Silver Surfer #35, penciled by Ron Lim, inked by Tom Christopher, and colored by Tom Vincent:

For those of you who don't already know, Thanos made his first Capcom fighting game appearance as the boss in Marvel Super Heroes. And then he popped up again in Marvel vs. Capcom 2.

In the comics, Thanos has battled the Avengers, Silver Surfer, Iron Man, Thor, and more. The Nihilist supervillain was created by Jim Starlin, and he broke out in a big way in the early 90s with the Infinity Gauntlet miniseries.

I could go on and on... but instead I'll just post another wallpaper!!! This one is from Marvel Super Heroes, as Thanos gets ready to face off against Shuma-Gorath.

If you're still craving more Thanos, here are some of his win quotes from MSH and here's a nifty little animated GIF of Thanos and the Infinity Gauntlet.

EDIT: MTV Geek used our version of the top Thanos image for their "who should play Thanos?" article. Nice steal, MTV!! BTW, for the record, I think Damion Poitier (the guy who played him in the Avengers movie) should also voice the character in his subsequent film appearances.

Hyper Combo Wallpaper: Marvel vs. Booklets

These are the booklets from Marvel Super Heroes, Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter, and Marvel vs. Capcom... all for the original PlayStation.

And since the HyperComboCast is taking the week off, I figured it's only right to reward you for your patience with some new wallpaper!

As much as I look back fondly on my days playing fighting games on the PS1, let's be honest -- the arcade versions of these games are exponentially better.

Still, I hope you've enjoyed this trip down memory as much as I have. See you next Monday for the new http://www.audioshocker.com/tag/hypercombocast!!

HyperComboCast has been KO'd this week!

Another AudioShocker casualty! Kenny Riot has been in the process of moving this past week, and fitting in the HCC just isn't gonna happen. And, frankly, I can't complain because I'm still really behind on stuff!

Anyway, we'll be back next week... hopefully delivering the near-infamous Changing the Game pt 2 that we've been delaying for almost a month now.

In the meantime, enjoy (if that's even possible) these ridiculous videos of me playing World Heroes 2 Jet:

OH YEAH!!! That's a whole lotta viking video game action.

Disclaimer! These pics all come from the Marvel vs. Capcom intro, and that's why there are no health meters or anything like that. Anyway, first up, we've got Gambit as he gets ready to bust out his Royal Flush Hyper Combo.
