Super-powered Marvel footage

See how Marvel Ultimate Alliance on Wii will have you firing super powers with your own movements

The Wii version of Marvel Ultimate Alliance will feature a cool gesture system that has you mimicking the moves of your heroes to activate their super powers, and this trailer shows how it works.

Playable by up to four players, MUA will let you control one of dozens of heroes, each with their own powers and the movement gestures to activate them.

You'll be making throwing motions to lob Captain America's shield, reaching into the air to use Storm's electric power or thrusting your hands forward to use Human Torch's flame-throwing attack.

The game will be available on the Wii launch, December 8.
