Why take a character that no one knows and whose comics no one buys and then puts that character in the game? I really wonder why. I can't seem to figure out why.

Because even a nobody like her at least makes more sense for a superhero team than the retard whose only power is to shoot arrows.

God, Hawkeye is so dumb.

He's Marvel's Green Arrow, but at least DC has the decency to use Green Arrow on an urban setting mostly, without having him fight side by side with Superman (most of the time).

It's really easy bro, we're talking about Marvel and Disney, so here's how they reason :" hey guys, we're making a new Avengers game, what if in an Avengers game we ditch the Avengers as protagonists, instead we put them aside, and make an unknown, and insignificant character a protagonist? Hey, it's a girl and she's part of an ethnical minorance, so sjw will be happy, do it! "


I'm so sad, broS

I for one love the leaked artwork, I just hoped they keep their word and don't pull an EA where you have to grind inreasonable amounts of time to unlock alternate suits

Yes, this is what I worry about. I love the alternate stuff they are showing us. Hopefully it is easily unlockable.

Well, if a girl would have been the A game protagonist, at least take a noticeable one
X-23, Jean Grey, Rogue anyone?

You make it sound as if the Avengers are going to be playable for 5 minutes, and then Kamala is going to be the only playable character for the entire game. I think it's easy to assume that once the first introductory chapter ends, you start with Kamala only, and then ala Final Fantasy VII, start recruiting the other Avengers in your party one by one (Banner probably is the first one).

And last time I checked, muslims weren't a minority.

Nah, not at this point, but they certainly be - imho, of course - like a tutorial, and then We'll be using them properly in the online

In synthesis: Kamala will be overpowered for the sake of the plot armor, doing things who look forced

I'm willing to bet you on that.

I bet that Kamala will not hog the spotlight and that the rest of the Avengers are going to be playable in the story mode and have a decent chunk of gameplay each, and that Kamala will not overpower them in gameplay terms.

Loser has to change his avatar for 2 weeks into a picture the winner deems appropriate (nothing offensive, just harmless fun). Bet ends once the game is released and we know details of the story mode's course.

You game?

We get that they are doing that, but why is it such a big issue? Why does it hurt you so much that they are putting in 1 minority when the other 6 announced characters are white?

Again, what is so wrong with having a newer character in an Avengers title? I don't understand why it is so upsetting.

He probably feels that Marvel/Disney is shoving diversity down his throat.

Maybe he thinks that Kamala isn't popular enough to be warranted the role of the protagonist? Maybe he's afraid that if Kamala is accepted by the fandom that will mean that five years from now all Marvel characters are going to be african-american transgendered muslim lesbians?

I personally don't mind her inclusion at all, as long as she doesn't make the other members of the cast look incompetent and as long as she's written well - which, by looking at the trailer and the gameplay segments, doesn't seem to be the case at all. She's a breath of fresh air and energy in a cast primely led by straight white men, so I don't see why other folk should feel so threatened by a character whose main function in the plot is to remind the other members to do their damn jobs and be heroes.

Because I don't like forced things, and feels bad to always have that forced sjw stuff, or wasted chance feeling

There are dozens of other female characters who could have done a better protagonist, at least theoretically, but of all them, the anonymous Kamala?
I want to specificy I have nothing against female characters or minorities, but only against forced things
Remember the infamous Endgame girl power scene? Ridiculous
Remember me, to make a more gaming example, like Nintendo used to insert characters in Smash to advertise them, that for me is another forced thing for example ( Daraen)

" Maybe he thinks that Kamala isn't popular enough to be warranted the role of the protagonist? "

This too, bothers me

And I'd have reacted the exact same way if we had an Aquaman ( or any other minor char) centered plot

I was really interested in the game, even if it looked not so good, but I hate games in which you have to play the main plot either as an avatar or an insignificant / relatively unknown character, just because the developers want you to like at all costs

Well, the bet is on. :D

Personally, I think she'll be as much a protagonist as Jolt was in the original Thunderbolts run.

They said the game will last 10-12 hours, definitely the optimal lenght for me, make the game theoretically much more replayable
Very good

You got to love how people online will go on and on about how "digital is the future, physical is dead", and yet conveniently when Ms. Marvel's comic is brought up they suddenly only want to talk about its low physical sales and fail to mention its high digital sales (at one being Marvel's highest selling comic via digital).

Anyway, gameplay looks solid and I like the VA doing the role (funny thing I thought it was Ashley Johnson AKA TLOU's Ellie in the role, but it's someone else). Also, maybe I missed a video where they showed they fixed it, but Tony's face looks better, and I think they may have slightly improved Black Widow and Thor's face as well. Hopefully Cap will get the same treatment, he needed it the most.

Yeah but how often is that type of speculation wrong? I've read versions of that for every other game then when it proves wrong that whine is aimed at the next unreleased product, never stopping to think maybe caricaturing products before they're released is intellectually dishonest. The people who mine released products for hidden influences at least are reacting to content we can have an evidence based discussion about

In general, not a significant number, but if we talk about female Disney characters, almost everytime

Excuse me, I might have really low standards but in what world is this unattractive or ugly as some people even called it?!


This is GAF, where all girls are ugly if they aren't flawless supermodels or pin-ups. (I'd love to learn about the relationship status for the guys who behave like this.) As it stands, I don't think we should be obsessing over the looks of a teenager in the first place!

I think a Rogue game is an interesting idea it can use stealth and ambush mechanics similar to batman but less acrobatic and not using gadgets forcing you to move more and ambush enemies with good abilities maybe a mechaninc to sense nearby characters, steal their powers and beat them , extract information form guards, using powers like touching a "stone skin" mutant and then beat armed guards while bullets cant hurt you, different powers can be used in certain parts of the scene like flying or teleporting, wolverine's regeneration for walking into fire, things like that, is not a new idea but is a good use for a character like Rogue

Would be an Infamous like take on X - Men, definitely interesting for a good adventure game

Incorrect. Sony only owns the rights to Spider-man in a) Live Action movies and animation and B) Live Action TV shows and Animation shows over 44 minutes long.

Sorry i misremembered.
Its just Spiderman games that are in the hands of Sony now....not the character in games.
He can appear in this game eventually....dunno why i thought it was the character considering he was/is in Marvel Ultimate Alliance.
<-- Brain fart.

Not a fan of the character but at least she is an original creation not a retrofit, so if you are going to try to expand your audience she actually is an example of the way to do it without offending the core fan base.

I just think her powers are stupid, and yes I also think Reed Richards and plastic man are stupid.

The only character with this power that I don't find ridiculous is Monkey D. Luffy honestly lol

So what's her origin story? Did she butt chug water from Flint, MI?

She's an Inhuman

I mean Ms.Marvel comics sure are flying off of the shelves. So let's put her in a game. If she was super popular then I'd understand. But most people don't even know who the fuck it is.


A lot of people know who she is. Just because your Marvel knowledge is limited to what you see on the big screen doesn't mean others don't know the character.

Nah, only mainstream characters are allowed apparently. Someone needs to time-travel almost a decade ago and tell James Gunn and Kevin Feige they can't make Guardians of the Galaxy as barely anyone outside of serious comic readers knew who the fuck they were pre-2014.

Great, if you are into comics I suggest checking out her Vol 1: No Normal it gives a great insight into the character and why she is popular among some readers.

However she has been around for a while now interacting with Avengers, Inhumans and X-Men so anyone crying diversity is kind of puzzling
