MUA3

Update: Now includes unlockable and DLC Curse of the Vampire Expansion Pack characters - Thanos, Loki, Cyclops, Colossus, Blade, Punisher, Moon Knight and Morbius.


Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order features a large cast of super heroes and villains that even non-fans of comics have come to know (if not love) over the years. These larger-than-life figures have starred in dozens of Hollywood blockbusters over the past two decades or more, culminating recently with the cinematic crossover extravaganza Avengers: Endgame, which we're sure you probably caught wind of a little while back.

We received some lovely promo art from Nintendo for many of the playable characters in the Switch exclusive, so we've collected them here for your enjoyment. There are even more characters in the game, with an update on 30th August unlocking Cyclops and Colossus. There are a host of bosses and non-playable characters, too, with more playable heroes coming in three DLC packs, the first of which will arrive this fall and contain Moon Knight, Blade, Punisher and Morbius (all included in the updated roster below). Future packs will include the Fantastic Four and X-Men.

Lineup

As a bonus we've also included a comparison picture of each character's most recent/famous live-action incarnation. We'll let you decide for yourselves if Team Ninja has taken inspiration from the live-action versions or stuck squarely to the source material, but some of the results are interesting, especially considering the criticism Square Enix's Avengers game has come in for over its depictions of Marvel's finest.

Without further ado, we kick things off with the King of Wakanda. Excelsior!
