It’ll be a minute before Marvel fans can see beloved comics character Kamala Khan headlining her own Disney+ TV series (https://ew.com/tv/2019/08/23/ms-marvel-show-disney-plus/), but Ms. Marvel (https://ew.com/creative-work/ms-marvel/) herself will hit a different kind of screen come May 2020.
While Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Black Widow, and Hulk are all playable figures in the big, expansive Marvel’s Avengers (https://ew.com/gaming/2019/06/10/marvels-avengers-video-game-trailer/) console game from Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics, Kamala has been revealed as the sixth member to join that roster.
The news was made official during a Marvel Games panel at New York Comic Con (https://ew.com/tag/new-york-comic-con/) this week, but press got an early look at the groundbreaking Pakistani-American superhero in action.
In the context of Marvel’s Avengers, Kamala is crucial to the story. Though all six heroes are “main characters,” Hannah MacLeod, the game’s narrative designer, says Kamala is the protagonist. “You’ll experience our original story through her unique perspective,” she explains.
