    This is either a really good, or really, really not so good, depending on how you look at Facebook games. In an effort to compete with online Facebook games like Zynga's MAFIAWARS and FARMVILLE, Disney Interactive Media Group has announced the upcoming launch of their all-new Marvel Facebook game titled Marvel: Avengers Alliance.

    No Caption Provided

    It's one thing to go head-to-head against some of Marvel's biggest villains, but its a whole other when there is actually a point to all that fighting. According to a recent article the game will actually feature a story line. When the player launches the game they will be "recruited as a S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent.

    As an Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.. players will be given the opportunity to build an all-Marvel team featuring some of the publisher's biggest names including Spider-Man, Thor, Captain America and many more. With your team of Marvel Avengers, players will deal with the repercussions of "the PULSE," a galaxy-wide disaster that has left planet earth vulnerable by targeting the super-villains of Earth and making them stronger. Based on the trailer, some of the super-villains players will face off against include Doctor Doom, Loki, Magneto and more.The question remains, what will be the cause of "the PULSE?" We will have to wait and see.

    == TEASER ==

    While we don't have a lot of information about the upcoming game at this time, we do have a very cool trailer that would get just about anyone excited to build their very own team of heroes to face off against some powerful super-villains. This all-new RPG game developed by Playdom will allow plays not only to command heroes, but to face head-to-head against some of the Marvel Universe's most nefarious villains. The game will be available to play exclusively on Facebook, and while it is not yet available, the first people to "like" the Facebook page will be the first to play this new RPG game.

    What do you think of the trailer? Do you think that the premise for the game sounds interesting? Do you like to play games on Facebook?

    Don't know. I've been tempted to play a few superhero and fantasy based games on Facebook BUT these damn things require a lot of your personal info for marketing and phishing purposes. So I don't do them, nor use apps or surveys.

    Regardless, it is great that Marvel is getting involved with this area. Can't hurt promoting their own properties. It may be fun.

    Magneto is probably bad because he is more recognized as a villain than a hero. People who do not read comics would probably be confused by seeing him play the role of a hero.

    I am interested in trying the game out... Seems to me like it will function similarly to how Pokemon and older Final Fantasy games worked.

    light rpg elements + franchise you know + zynga style social features = game I will never play because the light rpg elements are used for the purposes of monetizing a game instead of being good parts of gameplay...

    Yes. Same for Loki. At that, I'm surprised that in-game Whiplash is so comic-accurate.

    Um... yay? I don't know, I've never played a game on Facebook, I have no idea what it entails.

    BTW, isn't it ironic that the villains looming in the background have all turned over a slightly better leaf lately? Then again, I have no idea what's happened to Juggernaut since Fear Itself ended, so who knows where he lies.

    @BlackArmor: The difference between this and DCUO is that I'm pretty sure you will be able to play the Marvel game on just about any computer or laptop that can log onto facebook, but the same can't be said about DCUO.

    I think he'll find the most powerful team of Avengers would consist of Iron Man, Wonder Man, Hulk, Thor, Ms. Marvel and Sentry. Or something to that effect, but it's only an advertisement, so I suppose I can let that one slide.
