Kamala Khan, or Ms. Marvel, is the main protagonist in Marvel's Avengers

Kamala Khan, or Ms. Marvel, is the main protagonist in Marvel's Avengers

Marvel’s highly anticipated Avengers game is still a long way away, but that hasn’t stopped developer Crystal Dynamics from releasing more information about the game. At New York Comic Con 2019, it was revealed that Kamala Khan, also known as Ms. Marvel, will be the main protagonist of the entire game!

Kamala will act as the main character for Marvel’s Avengers, pulling the heroes back together after the tragic events of A-Day that killed Captain America. The events of A-Day also exposed the world to Terrigen Mist, straight out of Marvel’s Infinity comic event.

This mist turned all Inhuman descendants into full blown Inhumans with superpowers, including a very surprised Kamala Khan. In the comics, she named her superhero self after her idol – Captain Marvel, or Carol Danvers. If Kamala is in this game, we’ll probably see Carol at some point too. 

The game is set five years after A-Day, and players will control a teenaged Ms. Marvel as she uncovers "a shocking conspiracy" and tries to reassemble the team.

NYCC 2019’s trailer shows off Kamala’s superpowers. She ‘Embiggens’ (a term she coined), stretching her limbs and growing larger much like Mister Fantastic. Enemies in the game also get their own special animations as they react to a superhero that is now triple or quadruple their size. The video above was also released, showing off character skins in the game. It also reveals Ms. Marvel’s suit, which looks incredibly comic accurate!

All in all, I think Kamala’s an inspired choice for a main character. She’s all set to get her own series after all, which will definitely bring her comic book success to mainstream audiences everywhere. Still, I doubt she’s the last hero to be revealed for the game and Crystal Dynamics definitely has more up their sleeves. The game is expected to keep expanding after its release next year, with more heroes and adventures planned for the future. 

Marvel's Avengers will release on 15 May, 2020 on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Google Stadia.
