Several Marvel video games from the company including this past year's Deadpool have been pulled from downloadable libraries on PSN, X-Box Live, and Steam.
Source: [Update] Deadpool And Other Marvel Games Disappear From Steam, Xbox Live, And PSN
With the start of the new year comes this bit of news. Activision has pulled every single Marvel video game they own off downloadable sites. These games include Deadpool: The Video Game, Wolverine: Origins (a VERY under-rated game based on the lackluster movie), Spider-Man: Friend or Foe?, Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, Spider-Man: Web of Shadows, Spider-Man: Edge of Time, X-Men: Destiny, and X-Men: The Official Game.
Game Informer broke the news and went right to the source with Activision itself on what Marvel games were pulled. Though they didn't confirm it, though it's very possible Activision has lost or dropped the license for Marvel games and won't be renewing it.
Consider this a fair warning. If you value playing any of these games, it's probably best to nab them now before they jump in price. Dare I bring up the price of what a Marvel vs. Capcom game costs now with the later breaking away from Marvel too or EA's Lord of the Rings games?
