But the question is... "Will it have X-Men?"

So far they've done everything they can to avoid answering this. I feel they're trying to not repeat Capcom's whole "modern Marvel fans don't remember most of the X-Men characters" statement.

It will be a really glaring omission if they aren't in this. With a game like MvC you can say "well there are only 15 spots, just couldn't fit them in." The Lego games have like 200 characters!

Just watch: there will be six types of construction workers and no X-Men...

At least the first LMSH had a lot of Merry Mutants.

My prediction, a few X-Men but no Fantastic Four.

I want to believe but...http://ie.ign.com/wikis/lego-marvel-sup ... Characters

This list is obviously incomplete, but so far there's no trace of characters that haven't been/can't be used by Marvel for the MCU. I believe that Marvel technically could use the X-Men and Fantatic Four in video games, but the higher-ups say "nay"... to using some of their most popular characters in their products (the logic behind this baffles me a little).

The game released today and it is confirmed that with like 200+ playable characters not one is Fantastic Four or X-Men. There is obviously zero excuse other than a petty corporate F U. The characters featured are so obscure that Greenskyn Smashtroll is in the game. GREENSKYN SMASHTROLL! But not Wolverine or Storm or Cyclops.

Yup this is the new normal. Those of who play/ed Marvel Heroes know this well because of the way they scoured the store of FF a few months ago. And then MvC was the same way as Lego.

See why I need this Fox merger to happen?

Koi Boy and Chipmunk Hunk are way more important than lame Cyclops or Storm.

I want to live in a world where we can have Koi Boy and Cyclops...

I guess that's part of what made the first Lego Marvel Super Heroes a game great. It was one of the last places outside of the comics where you could see the Fantastic Four and X-Men interacting with the Avengers.

Just started this now and whilst the lack of X-Men is an annoyance, the really odd cameos are brilliant fun.
