Marvel Super Hero Squad: Comic Combat is a video game that uses the uDraw GameTablet, developed by Griptonite Games, and published by THQ and Vivendi Games. The game is the third in the Marvel Super Hero Squad franchise, acting as the sequel to two video games Marvel Super Hero Squad and Marvel Super Hero Squad: The Infinity Gauntlet. It was released on November 15, 2011 for the uDraw GameTablet, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Nintendo Wii game systems.[1]

Based on characters from Marvel comic books such as Thor and Iron Man, Marvel Super Hero Squad: Comic Combat revolves around Doctor Doom and his minions planning to find a way into the real world to steal the uDraw GameTablet and use it to take over the comic book universe.

Designed to be played with the uDraw GameTablet, the tablet helps players with attacks, weapons and barricades. Players use the stylus pen to draw their own attacks in order to stop Doctor Doom and his evil cohorts.[2]

Players choose from 10 "Squaddies" based on characters from Marvel comic books, including Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Wolverine, Falcon, Scarlet Witch, Invisible Woman, Reptil, Hulk, and for the first time, Squirrel Girl. Players also solve unique puzzles using the tablet to defeat Doctor Doom. Major Marvel Comics antagonists such as Doctor Doom, MODOK, Abomination and Red Skull are portrayed as the main villains of the Comic Combat.[3]

Featured Locations include the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier, the Baxter Building, the Vault and the Sanctum Sanctorum.[1] Shaking the uDraw GameTablet will cause a massive in-game earthquake. The game includes a total of six comic book-designed stages and additionally players can earn "hero points", that can be used to upgrade all ten characters.[4]
