Vringo, the next-generation ringtone pioneer, has collaborated with Marvel Entertainment to create and distribute mobile videos and video ringtones based on Marvel's legendary library of Super Heroes.

"It's a press release cliche to say you're excited, so I'll just say that teaming with a world-class entertainment company like Marvel feels like waking up and discovering that you have adamantium-laced bones," said Vringo CEO Jon Medved. "Marvel continues to break new ground in digital distribution, and we're proud to work with them on developing the world's first Super Hero video ringtone portal."
The store features editable raw footage and pre-cut video ringtones from newer Marvel properties like the animated Wolverine & The X-Men, and classics like theme songs from the fan-favorite animated 1966 Marvel Super Heroes series, with new content coming each month. All Marvel fans with video-ready phones can use the store to view and send bite-sized Marvel videos to their devices. Fans with Vringo application-compatible phones can take it to the next level, turning their clips into video ringtones and taking advantage of Vringo's VringForward technology, which lets them choose which Super Hero (or villain) they want their friends to see when they call.

Fans can visit http://vringo.marvel.com/ to get their first mobile video free and additional clips will be priced at USD $2.00. The Vringo application is available for BlackBerry Bold, Symbian, Windows Mobile and J2ME devices, with support for additional platforms coming later this year.
