Marvel’s Avengers focuses on various characters from the Marvel universe banding together, both on the good side and the bad side. While only a select amount of playable characters have been confirmed, we know the game will continually expand for the coming years with more levels, more heroes, and more villains. Here is a complete list of everyone we know in the game so far, either playable or just appearing.
Captain America is playable during the A-Day opening mission, until he loses his life during those events. It would be very odd if he is not playable again at any point in the story after that, so expect him to be brought back to life or shown in a flashback at some point.
Tony Stark and his trademark cocky nature are in full display, as always, with the Avengers. Following the events of A-Day, Tony could potentially be in a depressive state, at least until Kamala and Bruce bring him proof that they were set up.
The God of Thunder seemingly disappears after the events of A-Day. In the Once An Avenger gameplay trailer, we see Thor return bearing a name tag that reads “D. Blake.” This is a reference to old Marvel comics where Donald Blake was Thor’s alter ego. Since A-Day, Thor may have been trying to live a normal human life. But he will be playable in this new adventure.
We’ve not seen a ton of Black Widow gameplay shown yet, but we do know she is playable. There are no hints to what she has been doing since A-Day so far.
Bruce Banner has been dealing with the ramifications of A-Day for years and obviously feels very remorseful for the Avengers’ hand in the catastrophe. We see him admitting the Avengers are dangerous and arguing with Tony about getting back together. Hulk is a confirmed playable character.
Kamala Khan has a significant impact on the story in Marvel’s Avengers. After learning she is an Inhuman with the ability to stretch and enlarge her body, she provides the Avengers with proof that they were set up and brings them together again to fight MODOK. She will be playable.
George Tarleton is one of the many victims of the Terrigan Mists that have created Inhumans. Now, with an expanded mind that allows him to control robots, he captures Inhumans promising to cure them, but tortures them instead.
While no reason for him appearing has been given, we did see Abomination slam Hulk into a wall during the recent War Table stream.
Taskmaster has a significant role during the events of A-Day, although it has not been fully explained yet. He is known for learning and adapting to his opponents. We see Black Widow fight him one-on-one and defeat him.
Nick Fury is well known for giving the Avengers orders. It is unknown the extent of his presence in the game, but expect him to provide missions for each hero.
In the MCU, Maria Hill is known for being Nick Fury’s number-one operative. In the game, it appears she will have a big impact in factions.
Dum Dum Dugan
Like Fury and Hill, Dugan has not had his presence fully explained in the game, but he is in the Resistance.
The first Ant-Man is present but doesn’t appear playable, at least at launch. We see Doctor Pym shrink one of MODOK’s robots with a Pym Particle Launcher and talk about his work with the Resistance at what is called the Anthill (not his choice).
Rumored/expected to show
We have seen Captain Marvel posters in Kamala Khan’s room, which makes sense since Carol Danvers is Kamala’s favorite hero. It will be very surprising if she does not turn up at some point.
It has been interesting to see Hawkeye not mentioned at all with the Avengers game. However, sharp-eyed fans have noticed Kamala’s room also has a picture frame of Hawkeye pulling back the string on his bow. It should only be a matter of time before he comes to the game.
