Square Enix's Marvel's Avengers video game may be adding a more youthful hero to its roster, as footage from Comic-Con International in San Diego teased the appearance of the current Ms. Marvel, Kamala Khan.
As detailed by Polygon, extended gameplay shows Kamala as a civilian witnessing a fight between heroes and villains in San Francisco during "A-Day," a celebration of Earth's Mightiest Heroes.
Since the first trailer dropped, fans have theorized that Kamala was the trailer's narrator. With this footage, it seems Kamala may play a part in the game, possibly becoming her costumed alter ego.
Created by writer G. Willow Wilson and artists Adrian Alphona and Jamie McKelvie (with editors Sana Amanat and Stephen Wacker also having a hand in her creation) and debuting in a cameo in 2013's Captain Marvel #14, Kamala is a teenage Pakistani-American girl whose Inhuman abilities were activated when she was exposed to a cloud of Terrigen Mist. Her Inhuman DNA endows her with shapeshifting abilities and a healing factor.
Inspired by her idol Carol Danvers, the current Captain Marvel and the original Ms. Marvel, Kamala took up the Ms. Marvel identity for herself and became a superhero. The character was positively received, and has since made the leap into other media, including the Marvel Rising franchise and the Avengers Assemble animated series.
Featuring Nolan North as Iron Man, Troy Baker as Bruce Banner, Laura Bailey as Black Widow, Jeff Schine as Captain America and Travis Willingham as Thor, Marvel's Avengers, developed by Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal and published by Square, will be released May 15, 2020 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Google Stadia.
