Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 is an action role-playing game for the Xbox360 and Playstation 3 that features characters from the Marvel Comics universe and follows elements of the Secret War and Civil War story arcs.
I served as the Combat and Powers designer on the project and was tasked with leading a team of animators and engineers to develop the look and feel of all core actions that can be performed in-game. This included items such as general traversal, grabs/throws, melee combat, individual hero powers, etc. Below are links to a few interviews I did regarding some of the characters in the game:

MUA2 was released on September 15, 2009 to favorable reviews. Many critics sited improved gameplay, the new fusion abilities, and a more engaging and thought provoking narrative as reasons for the game’s success.
