Gazillion and Diablo luminary David Brevik's free-to-play MMO Marvel Heroes enters closed beta on October 1, allowing selected players to don the supple spandex of their favorite Marvel characters in the search for foes to vanquish, loot to gather, and role-playing sessions trading "Pow! Biff! Bamf!" over chat.
Anyone registered on the official website (opens in new tab) at October's start earns a chance of ascending into closed-betahood, but you'll need to supply your own pyrotechnics and victory fist-pump if you're chosen. Check out our hands-on preview (opens in new tab) from earlier this summer for more.
