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.

>She has become one of the most popular characters of the universe.

And including only recent ones, no one gives a shit about comics anymore.

Yeah that’s utter bullshit.

For a game it makes perfect sense to play as the underdog and not say Iron Man or Thor as a main character.

Assuming she is an underdog though, lol, I just don't really know who she is.

It seems dumb considering Carol Danvers who already has a movie about her was the original Ms. Marvel and that the fans making the Captain Marvel movie chose her to be "Captain Marvel" instead of any of the actual characters who were actually Captain Marvel well before. I personally enjoy Captain Marvel movie and I have no problem with Ms. Marvel inclusion. I do have a problem with how much they hyped this event up only to have a C-list character announced when literally any other Avenger would have been more exciting. This game clearly began development during a time when Marvel thought the Inhumans were going to be the next hot thing.

Lots of bias here. Coolyfett doesnt like the character personally, but she has the right to lead a game. She was on the roster for Ultimate Alliance 3 & Coolyfett found her uninteresting, but this is Marvels chance to bring some substance to the character. This explains why the Averages game looked as if it played on rails in a linear format. Coolyfett is still on the fence about this game, but not because of Ms Marvel's inclusion.

I guess it's good for them to focus on one particular target audience rather than trying to appeal to everyone.

Make an Avengers game centered around one of the most boring characters possible, absolutely genius.

That's... Odd. Well, it's not really, but we'll just say that. It's certainly a weird direction for an Avenger's game, considering the MCU.

Now our avatars all fucked up, can barely read the tiny text with signatures bigger than the posting space and 40% of the right side of the screen taken up by nothing.

WTF...when people said Kamala Khan was in Avengers, I thought they were talking about Captain Marvel.

I'm pretty big Marvel fan, but last time I checked Captain Marvel was a guy, I knew there was a girl version but I thought she was Miss Marvel, then this movie came out and been slowly figuring it out here and there.

Like I just got Ms. Marvel 18-29 from a local shop and just looked and its Kamala, I didn't even realize it says Ms., thought they were Captain Marvel. Since I'm really new to her stuff, I really don't understand, I thought she was a shape shifter, but the comics I have, say shes like Mr. Fantasitc. and stretchy.

Ms Marvel actually seems like a pretty cool character. I've always enjoyed the mind-over-body type characters, people that can morph into things or shapeshift or turn their hands into hammers or something. It's just goofy enough to be entertaining, but also still kind of cool.

Maybe they're hedging their bets in the girl-power department?

Captain Marvel was by far the worst MCU movie so far, and it really turned a lot of people off of Captain Marvel. Brie Larson also alienated a lot of people, including her fellow cast members.

Maybe Ms Marvel is the backup plan if they decide to cut her loose.

Hahaha you're lucky. The forum itself is literally a 5-inch strip down the middle of my screen. There's about 5 inches of nothing to the left top to bottom, and about 10 inches of nothing to the right.

More room for ads, I guess.

Last I heard, she was supposed to be one of the main characters, not the main character.

"thanks to her bubbly personality and fangirlish attitude towards the rest of the Marvel Universe"

Cool, this is exactly what everyone wants as their main protagonist in any sort of media.

From the trailers she isn't the only potentially shit character, they are trying really, really (way to hard) to emulate the movie banter.

The thing about the Arkham games, they took inspiration than straight up emulated. It still felt like it's own entity.

No one cares about her or the fact they picked who they did to play her... This is more false narrative.

If you were a big Marvel fan, I would expect that you would know that the Male Captain Marvel has been dead for over 35 years now. Carol Danvers dropped the Ms. Marvel name in the early 80's as well. She has been using the Captain Marvel name for nearly 10 years now in the comics.

I have never heard of her.

Pretty sure I don't want to play a movie game starring her.

Crystal Dynamics also aren't very good.

Nothing against that character in particular but this game looks like an Anthem style disaster to me.

@nintendoboy16: not reaching. Just take a look at things like X-Men dark Phoenix, and Captain Marvel. Two great stories butchered because of supposed oppression.

I'd rather have a character I don't recognise than some knock-off made-for-tv Avenger that just ends up being really off-putting.

Reminds me of MGS2 demo playing as Snake.

And when full game released you get to play as Raiden

@speedytimsi: Same here. MGS2 is the first thing that came to mind. The legendary badass Solid Snake got replaced by the rookie fanboy Raiden a few hours into the game... And MGS2 ended up becoming one of my favourite games of all time.
