Marvel’s “Spider-Man” video game released last Friday in the US exclusively on PlayStation 4, and it’s already massively successful. 

The game has an 87 on review-aggregator site Metacritic. Game Informer called the game “a triumph of superheroes and storytelling” and GamesRadar said it’s “about as good as superhero gaming gets.” The game’s first-week sales in the UK were better than any other game released this year; its launch numbers in the US are expected soon, and to be stellar.

It would be shocking if Marvel wasn’t looking at the results and considering the video-game possibilities for other superheroes. After the success of the “Spider-Man” game, and with Marvel’s characters more popular than ever thanks to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it seems inevitable.

Fortunately, Marvel retains the video-game rights to all of its characters, which avoids the kinds of difficulties that the films have faced — until the recent Disney-Fox merger, Fox owned the film rights to the X-Men and Fantastic Four, and Sony, which owned the Spider-Man film rights, made a deal with Marvel so the character could debut in the MCU.

Below are nine characters that Marvel should seriously consider for video games:
