Not sure if there is already a thread for this game, did a search and didn't see anything.

Her inclusion seems to have fallen a bit flat with most of the comments I've seen, a lot of people (including me) have never heard of her before and look at her as a gender bent Reed Richards.

I am looking forward to this game but I hope it gets delayed and a next gen version is released. Being that they have a long term release schedule for more content I'm guessing a next gen version is almost a sure thing. The people who saw it at gamescom said all of the footage they've shown is from the PC version and that the PS4 Pro version was also on display but it was struggling to run the game well.

.. So.. Her hands grow big? Like Elastic Man or something?
She's an inhuman shapeshifter and morphs her body or her hands/feet during fights. Or as she calls it "embiggen". She can also grow tall like a building or very small ala Antman. She leads the Champions... Nobody knows Ms. Marvel? Nobody's reading Marvel comics anymore? She's nothing like Reed.

So people know Miles but don't know Kamala Khan? I'm guessing the Marvel movies will introduce the next generation to many.

Nope. I just do audiobooks now while I drive.

I do wish there were some better comic based audiobooks though. I'd like to get novelizations of Hellboy.

That's the thing, this is called Marvel's Avengers and she's not even part of that group, yeah it's going to have more characters than just those in the Avengers but why is she going to be the main protagonist? Every comment I've seen other than "yeah inclusion" has ben either "who is she" or "why would anyone care? her comics don't sell anymore" so it's not like this is some huge move that just gets everyone hyped for the game.

Audiobooks of comics? I didn't know that was a thing. There's so many interesting comics around. Deadly Class, Monstress, Saga. So many stories..so little time.

She was an Avenger..Of course the filthy casuals aren't hyped..they don't know because she's not mainstream and they're stuck in the 90s. But to me the game got alot more interesting due to her being in it. She's more likeable than most heroes, so this why should we care won't be an issue. If people like the Miles from Into The Spider verse, there's no way to not love Kamala.

We've seen the original group of Avengers in every sort of medium and you'll still get to play as them. It's nice to have someone fresh for a change. There are plenty of characters that never get much of the chance they deserve in the spotlight because everything is always a reboot or new story with the same old characters. She's earned it, trust me.

Nah I was saying I wish there were. I listen to audiobooks of regular novel fiction or maybe short story collections. Sometimes non-fiction.

So I'm out of the loop on anything current.

Yeah I read Marvel comics and her inclusion is not a surprise. Hell she was in Ultimate Alliance 3. And she was an Avenger in 2016 then Marvel did a shake up. My understanding is this Avengers game is not MCU based, but comic based which lends for a much larger variety of characters to chose from.

There is some guy on YouTube that narrates them, condensing some...if I find him I’ll post it.

Maybe they’re all a bunch of total noobs and are only aware of characters that are in the MCU. Like they hint at Nova in the last GotG2 and i highly doubt that 99.9 dug deeper into who that character is. True believers won’t waste their time to enlighten them.

The comics are just source material for every other media mode/iteration (games, cartoons, live action, shorts, etc) for its base.
