Marvel Heroes Summary
Though the timing doesn't line up with any immediate Marvel movie releases as usual, the Marvel Heroes 2016 twitter account seems to be hinting at big plans for 2017.
Straight from the full season premier of Luke Cage on Netflix over the last week, free-to-play Hack n' slash title Marvel Heroes 2016 is celebrating the release with a few updates to their hero roster.
While available for a few years already, the Marvel Heroes rendition of Luke Cage gets his own shake-up with a costume more closely resembling his on-screen appearance portrayed by Mike Colter in the new Netflix series. Accompanying him comes Jessica Jones - mimicking how the tie-in series had the two working together.
ABC's Agents of SHIELD may not have raked in the fewer figures of its last season a few nights ago, but Marvel Heroes 2016 - the Diablo-esque F2P PC title set in the heroic universe - was primed and ready to introduce this season's main focus into the SHIELD ranks.
Daisy Johnson, AKA Quake or Skye, leads the fray from the entire 4th season stretch of Agents of SHIELD, whereas newcomer to the series - but certainly not the franchise - Ghost Rider comes bearing the chains.
Everyone's favorite damphir is now the 52nd playable character in Marvel Heroes 2015, as Gazillion has released a trailer showing off Blade, who is voiced by Dennis Fennoy and based on Marko Djurdjevic's design in the Blade 2006 comic series. Blade’s original costume from Tomb of Dracula #10 is also available as an alternate style.
Other Halloween content released for Marvel Heroes 2015 includes the Franken-Castle and Symbiote Wolverine, inspired by the cover of New Avengers #35 and voiced by Steve Blum.
Gazillion Entertainment demoed some of the content fans can expect from Marvel Heroes 2016 - the next annual evolution of the MMO action RPG - at Ney Work Comic Con over the weekend.
Comics nerds can enjoy a story campaign based on the majorevent from 2008, in which the devious Skrulls invade Earth in the guise of various superheroes.
