Marvel vs. Capcom (Arcade)
200x100 GFX Company: Capcom
Genre: fightinggame
Released: USA: 1998
One of Captain Commando's win poses features the team striking the same poses seen in official art used for the game's flyer and cover for some home ports.

Acclaim supposedly still had the Iron Man license for Acclaim's "Iron Man and XO Manowar in Heavy Metal" side-scroller, so he couldn't be used in Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter. War Machine gets his spot in this game with a modified playing style. Acclaim also had the rights to the Fantastic Four around this time (that game released in 1997), but you'll also find folklore that Marvel refused to let F.F. members appear in a game outside a group setting (though most solid mentions of that in interviews were from around the time of Marvel vs. Capcom 3). The Thing and the Human Torch still managed to appear in Marvel Nemesis without a playable Reed or Sue, but I don't know if that turned out to be a case for or against letting only part of the team be in a game roster.
