Users will encounter playable heroes during gameplay, including new creations like Captain Steamhammer, a Russian strongman with a steam-powered suit, and Seer, a kid genius and powerful psychic. These heroes will face villains similarly created for the game, such as Lord Hibiculus, leader of the Dark Gnome aliens from Gnomulon, and Sand Witch, an ancient mummy awakened by an evil curse.
"Fans of my classic superheroes are going to love the new characters they can play as in Hero Command," said Lee, Chief Creative Officer at POW! Entertainment, in a statement. "Plus, the game has me as a character -- what more could you want!"
Lee has a long history with video games, dating back to his narration of 2000's "Spider-Man." He has appeared as himself in multiple others, including "The Amazing Spider-Man," "Lego Marvel Super Heroes" and "The Amazing Spider-Man 2."
