Magneto’s costume in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3’s upcoming Ancient Warrior costume pack has raised a bit of controversy in Spain, due to the similarities between it and the iconic attire of their king, Juan Carlos. This comes almost six years after a similar event saw Marvel removing artwork of Magneto wearing the same outfit from their House of M series. While Spain’s royal house has yet to call for the costume’s removal, discussions are planned to take place in the near future to cement their stance on its inclusion. Is this a respectful homage or blatant rip-off? And if it is removed, what outfit would you like to see take its place?
