If we’ve learned anything from Marvel’s comics and cinematic universe, it’s that the world is always expanding. New villains are always emerging and new heroes are always swooping in to stop them. Crystal Dynamics is taking this same approach with its game starring Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. Marvel’s Avengers launched with six playable characters, but that’s far from all the heroes we’ll be able to take control of when it’s all said and done. Crystal Dynamics has said that all playable characters will be added at no additional cost, but additional upgrades for those characters could cost money.
Check out all the characters you can play as in Marvel’s Avengers, as well as all the heroes still to come.
Following a disaster in the opening of the game, Kamala Khan discovers new powers that allow her to grow and stretch her body in ways that help her fend off enemies and traverse the environment in unique ways. As the main character of Marvel’s Avengers, her goal is to reassemble the outlawed hero team to once again save the world.
The leader of the Avengers, Captain America is killed during the opening sequence. His loss is felt throughout the story as the Avengers work to come together and make his sacrifice meaningful.
The billionaire tech genius in the metal suit has a full arsenal of gadgets and weapons to use against the forces of evil.
The former SHIELD super spy is a martial arts and weapons expert, and has the gadgets to support her skills.
The mighty god of thunder wields his legendary hammer Mjolnir, along with powerful command of lightning.
The mild-mannered Bruce Banner transforms into the giant, green rage-monster to rampage through enemies and environments with ease.
Current Post-Launch Heroes
Hawkeye (Kate Bishop) – December 8, 2020
Clint Barton’s protégé joins as the first post-launch hero. An expert archer trained by Clint, Kate has similar abilities to him, but features her own distinct moveset and gear, which include razor arrows, scattershot arrows, explosive arrows, and smokescreen arrows. She can also teleport around the battlefield using warp arrows, spawn holograms, and apply quantum energy to her attacks. She joins as a part of Operation: Taking AIM, with a story focused on searching for Clint Barton with the Super Adaptoid standing in her way as a new Omega-level antagonist with all the abilities of the Avengers.
Hawkeye (Clint Barton) – March 18, 2021
Missing since the events of A-Day, Clint Barton re-emerges as a part of Operation: Future Imperfect. Taking place in a future where the world has been devastated by the Kree and nuclear war, Operation: Future Imperfect pits Hawkeye against a deranged Maestro, a transformed version of Hulk that combines Banner’s intelligence with Hulk’s might. Maestro has killed all superheroes and supervillains in this theoretical future, and it’s up to Hawkeye to put an end to his reign.
Black Panther – Summer or Later 2021
