With Thor: Love & Thunder just a week and modification away and bringing in Jane Foster’s Mighty Thor, it’s no surprise that Square Enix’s Marvel’s Avengers game is including her to its superheroic lineup. While she’s sure to essentially play about the verysame as Thor Odinson from the base project, the larger concern—for those who still play the videogame—has been how she’d get worked in, narratively. Earlier in the week, Crystal Dynamics launched an animated brief drawn by Ms. Marvel artist Takeshi Miyazawa that sets the phase for her inbound arrival, and it’s infact a quite fascinating method to consistof her in the brave fisticuffs.
While the videogame’s take on Jane went through the exactsame life as her comics equivalent—being a sweetheart of Thor, getting cancer, and getting Mjolnir—the huge distinction is in where she comes from. Voiced by Zehra Fazal, the videogame’s variation of Jane Thor hails from another timeline, one where she served as a protector of Earth and Asgard with her Avengers. When the Odin of her universe went mad with power after Odinson vanished, she allied with Loki to bring the All-Father down for excellent. And Loki being Loki, he turned on her assoonas the offer was done, throwing her into the universe of the Avengers game.
Now that sounds like it might be a project worth playing; one of Marvel’s Avengers high points hasactually been its characterization and composing. It would be intriguing to see this variation of Thor shot to get on with individuals who are, in her eyes, alternate variations of the buddies she’s battled nextto and lost in a 2-3 hour story. It’s a pity, then, that “Mighty Thor” sounds less like a complete blown project on the level of the ones for Black Panther and both Hawkeyes, and more like a mini-event on the level of Spider-Man for PlayStation users. She’ll still probably be enjoyable to play, however a world where she’s offered space to breathe and really be a character rather than just another hero to put on the splash page would be good.
The Mighty Thor will come to Marvel’s Avengers next week on June 28, with a gameplay expose the day prior.
