Marvel vs Capcom Origins does a fine job of staying true to the originals, while the addition of dynamic challenges provide a new layer of addictiveness that helps to overshadow how much these games have aged in the past two decades.
I'd argue that Marvel Super Heroes is worth the price of admission here, but like I said, it's one of my childhood favorites and it's possible I'm biased. Marvel vs. Capcom, despite its sequels, isn't anywhere near as good and I could've done without its inclusion.
Marvel vs. Capcom Origins is a near-royal treatment given to a duo of games that have stood the test of time.

There's still a ton of fun to be had there.
Marvel vs. Capcom: Origins offers two great fighting experiences with mechanics that hold up even today. It might stand in the shadows of the sequels, but for those of you who want to see what it looked like the first time Gambit beat up Mega Man, you can't go wrong with this game.

Capcom Origins fulfilling as a package. However, the same amount of praise can't exactly be said about the games themselves.
One may be annoyed by Capcom's recycling mastery, but it's still hard not to appreciate Marvel vs Capcom Origins, a nice compilation of two must-have titles of versus fighting. On top of those, the quality of this compilation's remastering, with nice menus, lighting fast loadings, and online play really make it interesting.
