Lego Marvel Super Heroes adds Stan Lee, Howard the Duck, Squirrel Girl and more

The confirmed playable cast of Lego Marvel Super Heroes grew substantially at Comic-Con today, with the announcement of nearly two dozen heroes, villains and real-world Marvel Comics creators.

Confirmed at the "Marvel Video Games" panel today were Dr. Doom, Jean Grey, Elektra, Magneto, Silver Samurai, The Punisher, Beast, Gambit, Storm, Green Goblin, Juggernaut, Rhino, the Thing, Vulture, Sabretooth and Invisible Woman. Marvel also confirmed that Marvel cinematic universe character Agent Coulson will appear in the game, voiced by actor Clark Gregg.

Marvel also announced a pre-order exclusive character, Iron Patriot, and confirmed that Deadpool will be playable in the game in a level that will feature Marvel chief creative officer Joe Quesada and Marvel editor-in-chief Axel Alonso. Stan "The Man" Lee, publisher emeritus of Marvel, will also be playable in the game. Gameplay footage shown at Comic-Con revealed that Lee will be able to use the powers of other superheroes, swinging from Lego webs like Spider-Man and transforming into a version of the Hulk with a Lego Stan Lee head.

Two more obscure, but fan-favorite characters, Howard the Duck and Squirrel Girl will also join the Lego Marvel Super Heroes lineup. Marvel's Chris Baker said the newly announced characters still represent "a mere fraction of the characters" that will ultimately be playable in the game.

Lego Marvel Super Heroes will be available for Windows PC, Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo 3DS, DS and PlayStation Vita later this year.
