It would have been an even cooler timeline
Capcom’s’ 90s 2D sprite work remains perhaps the most iconic art of the genre, and that goes doubly so for their interpretations of Marvel characters.
Since Guardians of the Galaxy didn’t see any representation until the 3D Marvel vs. Capcom (unless you want to count Thanos), the artist Alain decided to bring Gamora back to the golden age of MvC sprites while still seeking the precision of classic titles.
The design of Gamora that Alan pulled is obviously taken from his Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite with its white armor and shorter hair redesigned to great effect.
Like many Infinite models, Gamora can look a bit awkward at times in 3D, but it seems to perform much better as a sprite, although I imagine it would be quite painful to animate this version of her given the number of small details. included in his armor.
Alan even went beyond assembling the raw sprite as he created a legitimate CRT filtered image that shows what the Guardian would look like on a classic arcade machine.
While they didn’t reach mainstream popularity until the 2014 film, it would have been great to see Capcom adopt characters like Gamora, Groot, and Rocket Raccoon in the ’90s.

This time around I wanted to tackle someone on the “M” side of #MvC.
I also took the opportunity to try the CRT filter from https://t.co/lIdGXwW0ma. Excellent results all around!#Gamora #Wonder #MarvelvsCapcom #CPS2-ish #Pixel art #PixelArtiste #Pixel art #Let’s draw a case game character #FGC pic.twitter.com/jYz9db46Xc
