The Fantastic Four and Silver Surfer Are Leaving Marvel Heroes Omega

Fantastic Four and Silver Surfer leaving Marvel Heroes Omega

There are times when comic book heroes finally fall or are written out of continuity. An online version of this situation is happening with Marvel Heroes Omega. The superhero-themed free mmo is quietly shedding some of its most well known heroes. Gazillion posted a notice that the Marvel Heroes Omega Fantastic Four and Silver Surfer characters will no longer be available to be purchased in the game.

The post detailing this Marvel Heroes Omega Fantastic Four and Silver Surfer news has been deleted. The post had said, "Starting on July 1, 2017, the following Heroes will no longer be available to purchase with Gs: Mr. Fantastic, Invisible Woman, Thing, Human Torch, and Silver Surfer...Under Gazillion’s renewed licensing agreement we do not have the rights to continue selling these characters moving forward. However, players who have already purchased or unlocked any of these affected characters and costumes before July 1 will be able to them continue playing them as usual."

It is important to note that mmo players can still continue to play the Marvel Heroes Omega Silver Surfer and Fantastic Four heroes if they had already purchased them. Gazillion stresses that they will continue to support the heroes with Omega items, bug fixes, and ongoing tuning. This move does not affect Doctor Doom, but it does impact a slew of costumes.

The full list of costumes that are impacted by this decision are: Spider-Man Future Foundation, Spider-Man Future Foundation Black, Spider-Man Bag Man, Ghost Rider – What if?, Doctor Doom Future Foundation, Mr. Fantastic Future Foundation, Invisible Woman Future Foundation, Invisible Woman Future Foundation Black, Invisible Woman All New Marvel NOW!, Thing Future Foundation, Mr. Fantastic All New Marvel NOW!, Mr. Fantastic Future Foundation Black, Invisible Woman’s Ultimate FF, Thing All New Marvel NOW!, Thing Black Future Foundation, Thing Black Jersey, Thing Fantastic Pants, Thing Fear Itself, Thing Incognito, Thing Modern, Human Torch 2099, Human Torch Classic Blue, Human Torch Light Brigade, Human Torch Modern, Human Torch Original, Human Torch Red, Human Torch Uncanny Inhumans, Silver Surfer Classic, Silver Surfer Exiles, Silver Surfer Keeper, and Silver Surfer Silver Savage.

The main reason for this change for the Marvel Heroes Omega Fantastic Four and Silver Surfer characters is likely the ongoing struggle between Marvel Studios and Fox over the movie rights to the characters. You can read a cached copy of the deleted post here.
