The Marvel’s Avengers game has an impressive roster of characters. The base game includes iconic Avengers like Captain America and Iron Man. Marvel’s Avengers has added DLC characters as well such as both Hawkeyes and Black Panther. It’s been one year since the game has released and Marvel’s Avengers plans to add content throughout 2021.
They recently released a roadmap of what’s to come. Among the content coming, is the inclusion of Spider-Man for PlayStation owners. It remains to be seen whether more DLC characters are joining the team. However, if there are more slots, there’s plenty of Avengers left to fill them. They can pick Avengers from the movies or the comic books. Here are the five DLC characters they should add next to Marvel’s Avengers.
5) Black Bolt – Least Likely Character
Black Bolt has a connection to the game already. Inhumans play a big part in the game, and he is the king of Inhumans. Black Bolt could easily be part of the Avengers game characters. The city of Attilan could also possibly be added to the game, much like Wakanda was. Alongside Black Bolt, other Inhumans can join the story. Interesting characters such as his wife, Medusa, his brother, Maximus, and his dog, Lockjaw.
However, the reason he’s the least likely to be a part of the game is that he’s not technically an Avenger. Although Black Bolt is often associated with the team and is a part of big events, he’s not officially on the team. The slim reason he could make the roster is because of the big part the Inhumans play in the game’s story. They could easily form a connection to allow Black Bolt into the game.
With his interesting powers, Black Bolt could be the most fun character in the game. His most prominent ability is his strong voice. According to Marvel, his voice can be as powerful as a nuclear weapon. We probably won’t see that power level in the game, but he could still be equal parts fun and powerful.
4) The Vision
The Vision has spiked in popularity since his inclusion in the MCU. First appearing in Avengers: Age of Ultron, The Vision has appeared in numerous projects. With the character becoming more mainstream, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him in the game. Except for Ms. Marvel, all of the Avengers game characters have been in the MCU.
In the comics, he was created by the evil robot Ultron to defeat the Avengers. The Vision decides to go against his creator and joins the team instead. Since then, he’s become a superhero who’s saved the day time and time again. Hank Pym, who is the creator of Ultron, is already in the game. So, there’s already a connection there that they can expand on.
If they include The Vision, it could lead easily to other additions as well. Characters such as Viv Vision could be included. Villains like Grim Reaper and Ultron himself could join the game as boss characters. The game has plenty of heroes but it could always use more supervillains to fight against.
Not only could he bring an interesting story, but The Vision could be a fun character. Being an android, he has an array of superpowers. He can shoot beams from his forehead. On top of that, he can morph his android body. This means he can make himself supremely heavy or light as a feather. One of his iconic powers is the ability to make himself intangible. With all these abilities at his disposal, The Vision could be a fun DLC character to add to Marvel’s Avengers.
Another king on the list, Namor is the ruler of Atlantis. Also known as the Sub-Mariner, Namor is an anti-hero. His priority is protecting his kingdom, even if it puts him against other heroes. He’s allied with the Avengers and other heroes as much as he’s been against them. Although Namor is loyal to Atlantis first, he has been a member of different teams before. He wouldn’t be out of place as a character for Marvel’s Avengers next DLC.
With the inclusion of Namor could also come the addition of Atlantis. Although it might be hard to fight underwater, it could still make for a cool outpost. A way they could include Namor is by having AIM threaten Atlanta. Thus, giving him a reason to team up with the other Avengers game characters.
Being from Atlantis, Namor has the ability to breathe underwater. He is also fast and powerful. At his disposal is an arsenal of different weapons. Most notably, his trident. Namor and all of his abilities could be a great addition to the game.
2) Doctor Strange
If Marvel’s Avengers wants to take it to the next level, then Doctor Strange is an ideal next addition. He’s the sorcerer supreme of the Marvel Universe for crying out loud. With his mystical powers, Doctor Strange is the most unique Avenger. His abilities and attacks could be several different magical spells.
Stephen Strange is an established member of the Avengers and a powerful superhero in his own right. According to Marvel, he’s also been a part of the Defenders and Illuminati. Most notably, he’s a part of the MCU. Doctor Strange is a popular character and would be a welcomed addition.
Marvel’s Avengers DLC always comes with a story expansion. With Doctor Strange being a mystical hero, he could bring plenty of other magical characters and creatures. Of course, if they add Doctor Strange they have to add his friend and partner Wong. Not to mention the villains they can add as well. Interdimensional characters such as Dormammu and Nightmare can appear as bosses. Out of all the Avengers game characters, Doctor Strange has the most potential to elevate the title to new heights.
1) Captain Marvel – Most Likely Character
It’s only a matter of time before Captain Marvel joins the roster. There have been numerous references to the character already in the game. Ms. Marvel, the main protagonist of the game, is a huge fan of Captain Marvel. Such a big fan in fact, that her superhero name is based on Captain Marvel. With that connection, it wouldn’t be hard to add her to the game.
Another connection to her comes from the Kree. This alien race invades Earth in the future. Captain Marvel and the Kree have a history together, and she can seamlessly be added to the story. With all of these connections, Captain Marvel is bound to be in the game soon. A strong character, Captain Marvel can be an incredible Avenger to play as. She has the ability to fly, has super strength, and also has the power to shoot energy blasts. She would be perfect for the game.
Although it remains to be seen if they’ll add more characters after Spider-Man, these additions could be cool.
