It’s no secret that the morbius film has been a disaster and is regarded as such by fans and critics alike. Despite the film’s extremely negative reception, he also saw a somewhat ironic positivity surrounding it. Memes about the film swept the Internet, which gave it a peculiar status. It’s this kind of irony that inspired some fans to add Morbius to the game.


This mod was made by TheShaunSenpai and Chimichangar on Twitter, who show that this mod replaces one of Firebrand’s alternate outfits in UMvC3 with Morbius. The modders themselves note that this is just a model swap of Morbius for Firebrand, so players shouldn’t expect custom game mechanics or movesets for the character. That said, Firebrand’s flight-based gameplay and swipe attacks match Morbius’ other playable appearances in Marvel games, such as Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3.

This skin has custom voice lines that are voiced by one of the modders themselves, which only fuels the ironic enjoyment of Morbius himself even more. Many of this mod’s Quote Replies and Retweets even involve a quote that doesn’t exist in morbius, “it’s time for morbidity” or some other memetic variation. This mod should be a fun time for any fan of the movie, ironic or not.


Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 is now available for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
