Marvel’s Avengers has stayed under wraps for quite some time. Developer Crystal Dynamics has been tight-lipped about the project, but the team has finally provided more detailed about the highly-anticipated game. Not only has Crystal Dynamics shown off customization features and a co-op mode, but the studio has also revealed much more about the story. The game will focus on Advanced Idea Mechanics (or as fans know it, A.I.M.) as the devious corporation gathers and experiments on Inhumans — a race of superpowered people that are slowly appearing all over the globe.
The reveal of the Inhumans and the game’s true villain, M.O.D.O.K., has taken fans by surprise. Marvel’s Avengers seems to be diving much deeper into the Marvel universe than anyone previously thought. Crystal Dynamics has also said that additional heroes will join the game’s original six after launch. And while it would be cool to see fan-favorites like Spider-Man and the X-Men, there are some heroes that we think would be perfect fits for the game.
Ant-Man is rarely anybody’s favorite Avenger, but he would make a wonderful addition to the game’s roster of playable heroes. Not only is he a founding member of the team from the days of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, but he’s already confirmed to be in the game. Recent trailers have revealed that a young Hank Pym is part of the cast, giving players missions throughout the game. We’ve even seen what appears to be some shrinking weaponry.
Maybe it is only a matter of time before Hank Pym suits up with the rest of the team, but hopefully sooner rather than later. He already has the right technology, so it’s possible that he is slated for a playable appearance in a future update. His inclusion would also allow for the appearance of the Wasp, and using them together in the co-op game mode would make for a fun team-up.
