The Avengers and Justice League finally square off on the court

first_imgWhile we’re all awaiting the upcoming Superman vs. Batman and the second Avengers film, we need something to whet our superhero crossover appetites. One of the most fun debates in the world of super-powered beings is which character can defeat another. A new mod has been forged in the bowels of creativity and hilarity, and aims to help us settle which superhero squad is best — Marvel and DC are going at it on the court.When you think of games famous for modding, open world exploratory games come to mind, such as The Elder Scrolls series, or survival games like Minecraft and Don’t Starve. Perhaps because it’s a sports game, but the NBA 2K series tends to fly under the radar as a highly moddable platform even though it has regularly been a modder’s paradise for years.Normally, the quickest and easiest route to NBA 2K hilarity is through a height mod, creating players smaller than the basketball itself, or mutating players into their animal counterparts. Now, though, a new mod lets us settle age-old superhero debates in the best way possible — through slam jams and egregious flops.The mod adds two new teams to the league — The Avengers and The Justice League — as well as gives them custom jerseys, and adds 25 superheroes total. Both teams feature iconic heroes from either universe, such as Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and the Flash for DC, and Wolverine, Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and the Incredible Hulk for Marvel. The court has been changed from the usual shiny hardwood to a metallic theme more befitting of a high-tech secret hideout, and the modded players have even received customized shoes to equip their super-powered feet.It doesn’t look like the heroes will be using their superhuman powers on the court, so they’ll have to rely on pure talent and a rigorous training routine instead.If you have the PC version of NBA 2K14, you can grab the mod files and begin making your day a little better starting now. The mod files don’t overwrite any of the original files, but be sure to pay close attention to the installation instructions, as they’re slightly more complicated than just extracting a compressed archive.
