Ms. Marvel, aka Kamala Khan, is the sixth playable superhero in Marvel’s Avengers. The character’s inclusion in the upcoming Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal-developed game was confirmed by publisher Square Enix at New York Comic Con on Friday.
Square Enix teased Ms. Marvel for Marvel’s Avengers back at San Diego Comic-Con in July, but a new trailer for the ambitious superhero game shows how Kamala Khan, and her polymorphic superpowers, will appear in-game.
As previously hinted at, Kamala acquires her Inhuman abilities to stretch and grow as a result of A-Day, the disastrous event that kicks off the story of Marvel’s Avengers. Kamala idolizes the Avengers, and after they disband, she makes an impassioned effort — now a super-powered being herself — to bring Earth’s mightiest heroes back together.
Ms. Marvel will join the Marvel Cinematic Universe in her own live-action television series, coming to Disney Plus. The Ms. Marvel TV show will debut on Disney’s upcoming streaming service in 2021 or 2022.
Square Enix officially revealed Marvel’s Avengers at E3 2019. The ambitious, years-in-the-making cooperative action game features now-famous Avengers such as Captain America, Black Widow, Hulk, Iron Man, and Thor, with the promise of more playable heroes to come.
Marvel’s Avengers will be released May 15, 2020 for Google Stadia, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC.
