There’s another update on the way some time this week, but I wanted to get Bravoman’s stuff on the site as early as possible to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of his game hitting Japanese arcades.

Bravoman’s custom sprite was improved a bit more, his Japanese arcade logo and ShiftyLook logo were converted to mini-logos, his game was added to the Game Index and sprite from that game kick off his sprite gallery. Any of those things that could added to his character in the fighting game-sized GFX Generators were added along with the GroupShot getting a new “Comic 88 x 136” info layout based on the “Bravoman X Wonder Momo” cover by UDON.

If you haven’t checked it out, be sure to hit and check out Bravoman-related celebration there, including his new cartoon!

I’ll be back later this week with another small update, including more Super-Skrull sprites!

Here’s a list of everything that was in the comic book and superhero-themed updates for last week:

Finally, Iron Man’s Hall of Armor is ready to fight in for M.U.G.E.N.:

Get the scratch-made stage and the music (Iron Man’s MSH BGM) from the page in this link! As a back-up feature, I have a new scratch-made sprite of Bravoman:

It’s on the Namco custom sprites page and he’s in the GFX Generators that use fighting game sprites.

In case you didn’t see it, yesterday’s TMNT-heavy update post can be found in this link. Due to day job issues, tomorrow’s update will be as late as this one was, but I think you’ll like the sprites I’ve been saving for this next one.

(Click to see full size)

GFX Generators There has been a major change to the menu set-up. Palette selections are no long found underneath the sprites on the second menu page. Don’t panic! Select everything else and go to the next page just as before. You’ll now see a new page to select the palettes, but with previews of the sprites to go along with them! The old system was just to avoid making another menu page. It might seem wasteful to have another page, but there will probably be new features (portrait palettes, eventually) added to the engine that would work nicely on this new menu page.

GroupShot: 88 x 136 pixel comic book cover added

Currently has Archie (with Capcom and Sega logos), DC 1980s, Marvel 1980’s, and Udon (Capcom). There’ll be more new cover set-ups like this in the near future, but let me know if there are any that you really, really want to see.

Capcom: Anakaris (2 new palettes), Chun-Li (more CvS sprites), Mega Man (MvsC sprite, 2 new palettes)
Marvel: Psylocke (4 new sprites, new palettes)

Mini-logos – Black Tiger added to the Capcom section, Dark Adventure & Violent Storm added to the Konami section. DC (swirl), Justice League of America (original), Justice League (Giffen/JMD/Maguire era stencil 2), Static, Teen Titans (1980s) added to DC section. Marvel, Fantastic Four added to Marvel section. Bravoman (TG-16 style) added to Namco section. Ninja Warriors and the New Zealand Story added to Taito section.

Custom Sprites – Mega Man NES: Meteor Man (movie), Galaxy Trio (Gravity Girl, Meteor Man, Vapor Man), Ip Man/Yip Man (Donnie Yen version, 2 poses)

Note: the new sprites and mini-logos were added to the GFX Generators, too.

Game Index – Black Tiger (arcade) updated and fixed.

I (finally) have LittleBigPlanet 2 for the PS3 and I’ve been enjoying it for about two weeks now. If you’re on the LBP.ME site, check out my page at scrollboss. I have a lame LBP1 test level and a LBP2 comic book logo/symbol shape giveaway level right now. I’ll eventually have a similar giveaway stage for game-related items for things that aren’t SMB, Sonic and the other things already heavily represented in LBP.

Heads up! In honor of G.I. JOE: Retaliation hitting theaters soon, a small G.I.JOE-themed update will hit next week. Yes, updates two weeks in a row! Expect to see new G.I.JOE and Cobra custom sprites along with some other Joe-related things.

Last, but certainly not least, Happy Birthday to Flying Omelette, owner of the Flying Omelette game site with shrines and an oddity section with more more weirdness than five Minus Worlds stuck together with Crazy Glue!
