After a less than stellar reveal at E3 this year, Marvel’s Avengers is shaping up with a new character reveal at New York Comic-Con today. And it is a big one!
Revealed today during the Marvel Games panel at NYCC, Kamala Khan aka Ms. Marvel is the newest character revealed and she plays a huge role. Kamala appears in the A-Day prologue and is exposed to the Terrigen Mist, which is where her powers come from. In the present, Kamala discovers a conspiracy and it is up to her to gather the Avengers and stop the evil about to be unleashed on the world.
“An optimistic fangirl of the Avengers, Kamala Khan is the perfect character for the story we’re telling in Marvel’s Avengers,” said Shaun Escayg, Creative Director and Writer at Crystal Dynamics. “Telling our story of Kamala’s coming-of-age brings a fresh, hopeful perspective to the gameplay experience and her unique abilities as Ms. Marvel makes her a character every person can relate to and will want to play. Kamala Khan is one of the unique characters that make our game stand apart from any Avengers story experienced before.”
I’m still cautious about Marvel’s Avengers and although Crystal Dynamics has improved aspects since E3, I’m not sold jut yet. Kamala is a nice addition, but for me, she isn’t enough to warrant my hype.
