Super heroes are not just found in comic books, TV-series and blockbuster movies, they are carrying out their heroic tasks in online casinos too. Blade, Spiderman, Wolverine, X-Men, Fantastic Four, Captain America and Daredevil are just a few examples of super heroes that have inspired slot game developers, and even less known characters such as Elektra, Silver Surfer and Sub Marines have been honored with their own slots.
Cryptologic has produced a long row of super hero themed slots in collaboration with Marvel and DC Comics, while Playtech is responsible for turning the adventures of the Marvel movies into playable slot machines.
There is also Microgaming which, in addition to working with Dark Horse Comics, have created their very own heroes and superheros for the online casino market. Microgaming also holds the rights to turning Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy into slot games for the internet market

In 2005, Cryptologic signed an agreement with Marvel Enterprises to become the sole world-wide developer of Marvel-branded Internet slots and other casino games. Three years later, Marvel signed a similar deal for Marvel’s motion pictures brands (Iron Man, X-Men, Fantastic Four, The Incredible Hulk,etc) but this time with Playtech. This caused some friction between Cryptologic and Marvel, but the dispute was settled in 2010 and now both Cryptologic and Playtech are churning out one popular super hero slot after the other.
