Marvel is in no short supply of games for their fans to partake in. From their MMOs, to their RPGs, to their simple puzzle games, they have something for everyone. Marvel Puzzle Quest is easily one of their most popular, and to honor the new year, the team has given fans a new update featuring fan-favorite character Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel.
Producer Josh Austin sat down with Marvel.Com to talk about the new update, as well as what to expect from this year in Marvel Puzzle Quest.
For the Captain Marvel update, he noted that this version is based off the version that’s currently in the comics, with the outfit that she took the Captain Marvel moniker under. Also, because this is a 4-star version of the character, she has new powers and abilities. Much like the comics, this version of Captain Marvel “takes charge and rallies her teammates”, making her a very powerful support character, instead of just a one-off attack character.
Her abilities work well with certain characters, according to Austin, this includes Iron Man and War Machine, the latter of whom she was apparently designed to work well with. This is a fun nod no doubt to the fact that they had a relationship in the comics recently.
As for when you can get Captain Marvel, you’ll have two chances this month. The first comes tomorrow via the Deadpool vs. MPQ event, and then later on next week in a very cool Flight vs. Flight event. Stay tuned for more updates for Marvel Puzzle Quest.
