Marvel Heroes Adds New Character Voiced By Prolific Video Game Voice Actress
Magik has joined the lineup.
Earlier this year at San Diego Comic-Con, developer Gazillion launched a poll that asked players which character they would like to see join the lineup for free-to-play PC game Marvel Heroes 2015. The character Magik won by a wide margin, and now she's been added to the game.
Magik--the 53rd playable character in Marvel Heroes--is voiced by veteran and prolific voice actress Tara Strong. She voiced Harley Quinn in Batman: Arkham City and does Meg Griffin's singing voice on Family Guy, among so many other video game roles.
Check out the video above to hear directly from Strong about her performance of Magik in Marvel Heroes.
“As such a versatile character, we had to ensure that we were representing as many aspects of her history, combat skills, and mutation abilities as possible," character designer Michael May said about Magik. “It would have been easy to focus strictly on her Soulsword and make her a pure melee fighter, but she has so much more to offer to a game of our genre. We structured the Soulsword as the core of all of her builds, but utilized her minions, teleportation discs, and sorcery to supplement and enhance her melee combat."
You can buy the Magik character today for Marvel Heroes through the Magik Hero Pack ($18). It comes with everything you see below.
