- More Marvel game projects have been rumoured to be in the works like a fighting game from Mortal Kombat developer Netherealm Studios.
Every Playable Hero in Marvel's Midnight Suns
As of September 2022, here are all the announced characters that will be playable in Marvel's Midnight Suns that range from classic well-known heroes to modern favourites.
- Blade (Eric Brooks)
- Captain America (Steve Rogers)
- Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers)
- Doctor Strange (Stephen Strange)
- Ghost Rider (Robbie Reyes)
- Iron Man (Tony Stark)
- Magik (Illyana Rasputin)
- Nico Minoru (Sister Grimm)
- Scarlet Witch (Wanda Maximoff)
- Spider-Man (Peter Parker)
- Wolverine (Logan)
There is also a new character called The Hunter who is making their debut in the game. In the past, this hasn't worked well. For example, Activision's X-Men: Destiny featured three original characters in the universe, and they were all touted as bland by players and critics alike. The name "The Hunter" doesn't give us much confidence as it's such a bland hero name, but we can be proven wrong.
- Marvel has had its influence on Fortnite. Here are some of the heroes and villains we'd love to see in the battle royale.
What is The Rationale For These Marvel Heroes Forming This Team?
Marvel's Midnight Suns, inspired by the comic books, brings together a menagerie of heroes throughout the universe. For example, your friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man and Iron Man are joining forces with some more obscure characters from the comics like Magik and Nico Minoru.
The reason behind it is that they needed to find people to counter Lilith, who calls herself the Mother of Demons. Spider-Man, Captain America, and the others required their knowledge of the supernatural and their powers. The Hunter is an original character we customize and has been brought back to life. They are supposedly the only one who has beaten Lilith in the past, so Earth's Mightiest Heroes require their assistance.
This storyline will not be bringing in Insomniac's Spider-Man or Square Enix's Avengers as Midnight Suns takes place within its own universe. On the bright side, it's been revealed that four more characters will be brought into the game, according to PCGamesN. They have not been revealed as of the time of writing.
Marvel's Midnight Suns will be released on December 2, 2022, for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
