Marvel’s Avengers is finally breaking away from the Avengers movies by adding a hero we haven’t seen in the cinematic universe yet: Kamala Khan.
Khan, also known as Ms Marvel, was announced over the weekend at New York Comic Con. She will be added to the roster of playable characters to join the superhero lineup in Marvel’s Avengers.
Ms Marvel first appeared in Captain Marvel #14 in 2013 and was popular enough to get her own monthly comic series, which started in 2014.
Ms Marvel plays an important role in Marvel’s Avengers: she is trying to bring the disbanded Avengers back together while looking for the origins of her powers.
“Players first encounter a young Kamala in Marvel’s Avengers during A-Day, where Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk, Black Widow, and Thor are unveiling a hi-tech Avengers Headquarters in San Francisco — including the reveal of their own helicarrier powered by an experimental energy source. The celebration turns deadly when a catastrophic accident results in massive devastation. Kamala is exposed to the mysterious Terrigen Mist, and finds herself developing extraordinary polymorphic powers, which she subsequently hides for years. Blamed for the tragedy, the Avengers disband. Five years later, with all Super Heroes outlawed and the world in peril, Kamala uncovers a shocking conspiracy and embarks on a quest to reassemble the heroes she believes in and to become the hero she was destined to be.”
Marvel’s Avengers is set to release on May 15, 2020 on PC, PS4, Xbox One and Stadia.
