THQ has been given exclusive rights to develop the games on all formats, according to a Marvel Ultimate Alliance [http://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/thq-signs-new-deal-with-marvel] games.

"Marvel is one of the true crown jewels in the entertainment industry and we are thrilled at the prospect of both building the Marvel Super Hero Squad brand and further developing our relationship with Marvel," said THQ President and CEO Brian Farrell. "We are dedicated to expanding our unmatched success story in the kids space and this agreement with Marvel is an excellent complement to our portfolio."

The Marvel Super Hero Squad is a series of two-inch figurines that debuted in 2007. Initially designed for kids, the toys have been a hit with adults as well and the line has branched out to include larger "multi-packs" of figures, vehicles and less well-known characters such as Fin Fang Foom [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kraven_the_Hunter]. Marvel has also announced plans for an animated series based on the toys.
