People sucking from straws make loud noise, haha, humour.
Ms. Marvel revealed as main character of Marvel’s Avengers video game
Not only is Ms. Marvel in Marvel’s Avengers but she’s the main protagonist, as the release date for Iron Man VR is also announced at NYCC. If you’re going to announce news about new Marvel video games then the place to do it isn’t necessarily E3 or Gamescom but an event like the New York Comic Con. That’s exactly what Marvel and Square Enix did and while Kamala Khan, aka Ms. Marvel, has already been teased as part of the upcoming Marvel’s Avengers what nobody knew until now is that she’s the main character. In the game’s version of the Marvel Universe, which is not the same as the Cinematic Universe, Kamala gains her powers during the ‘A-Day’ disaster that kicks off the game’s plot and leads to the Avengers disbanding. Kamala develops shapeshifting powers and it’s her that apparently discovers the conspiracy behind what really happened on A-Day and helps to bring the team back together. It’s implied that Kamala is the first character you get to play (although perhaps after the tutorial-like section we played in August) with others being added as the story continues.
Who is Ms. Marvel? Although the mantle of Ms. Marvel has existed since the 70s, Kamala’s first appearance in comic books was only in August 2013. A teenage American Muslim from New Jersey, and daughter of Pakistani immigrants, she’s become one of the most popular new characters of recent years, thanks to her bubbly personality and fangirlish attitude towards the rest of the Marvel Universe. She has appeared in video games before, most notably the Lego Marvel Super Heroes games and Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3, and is tipped to be a major part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe going forward – possibly appearing in the sequel to Captain Marvel (although she idolises Captain Marvel, in the comics the origin of Kamala’s powers don’t actually have anything to do with her she’s actually an Inhuman). Marvel’s Avengers will be released on 15 May 2020, on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and Stadia.
