When they try to make Marvel Team-Up a non-Spider-Man team up, the result is usually flat. Mainly because they usually use Human Torch, who is one of the most boring characters in the Marvel Universe. Ask anyone who their favorite hero is, they’ll never say Torch. Ask them who their favorite Fantastic Four member is, and I bet they won’t say Torch.
Here, they team him up with Iceman, which has all kinds of possibi…zzzzz.
Iceman’s another one nobody cares about. Ask anyone who their favorite mutant is, they’ll never say Iceman. Ask them who their favorite founding member of the X-Men is, and I bet they won’t say Iceman. Marvel even recently made him gay and nobody bought his solo book.
