You might be wondering why Gazillion selected Green Goblin – one of Marvel’s most notorious Super Villains – as the 56th playable character in a game called Marvel Heroes 2016.
Longtime players know the story-based reason: During the events of AXIS, Captain America needed all the help he could get against the unyielding power of Red Onslaught, so he enlisted the aid of Green Goblin and the Thunderbolts – Super Villains forced against their wills to use their power for good. But we prefer the practical reason: HE’S SO MUCH FUN TO PLAY!!!
Norman Osborn swoops in on his Goblin Glider to terrorize enemies with Pumpkin Bombs, Razor Bats, and other iconic weaponry, all accompanied by a fiendishly maniacal vocal performance by Travis Willingham. He’ll be available in-game this Friday, March 4, and players can pre-order his Hero Pack for 10% off the regular price of $17.99 – including an alternate costume and other goodies – at http://store.marvelheroes.com.
Since January, the Advance Pack 3 has offered players a huge discount on all seven character releases for the coming year: Green Goblin, Elektra, Angela, Nick Fury, Black Bolt, Ultron, and one to be named later. We’re happy to reveal, the final slot goes to the most intelligent and agile of the original X-Men – Beast! Now an invaluable member of the Uncanny Inhumans in the comics, our blue-furred, philosophically focused friend rounds out what may be the most diverse cast of Advance Pack playable characters ever assembled. You’ll have to act quickly, though – oh, my stars and garters, the Advance Pack 3 leaves the Store this Friday! http://store.marvelheroes.com
Along with Beast, Warren Worthington III was one of Professor Xavier’s first five recruits to his School for Gifted Youngsters in THE X-MEN #1. They’ve both gone through considerable changes – though rogue experimentation resulted in blue fur for Beast, a run-in with Apocalypse destined Warren to go from the optimistic Angel to the metal-winged, rough-edged Archangel. Voiced by Liam O’Brien and with a look inspired by his appearance in Craig Kyle and Chris Yost’s classic 2008 X-FORCE run, Archangel fights by your side starting this Friday.
