With Marvel Contest of Champions, gamers will craft a group of heroes and villains taken from Marvel’s extensive universe, and along with single player campaigns there’s also player vs. player (PVP) mode for gamers who love a bit of online competition.

A sign that this app may have legs lies in its creative direction, as Marvel Comics scribe Sam Humphries (The Legendary Star-Lord) penned the game, which features a group of heroes who team up to take down such other worldly villains as Kang the Conqueror and Thanos.

“It was awesome working with Kabam to develop a unique storyline for a video game that stays true to the Marvel Universe,” said Humphries. “Watching the heroes and villains come to life as playable characters on my phone is beyond epic.”

Scarlett Johansson on Black Widow’s ‘Winter Soldier’ Transformation

 

One of the many reasons why I will, as comics icon Stan Lee suggested years ago, always “make mine Marvel” is that amidst all the action and larger than life superhero conflicts lies a murderer’s row of dysfunctional individuals.

Such is the case for Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson). Although we already know that Black Widow contains the fighting acumen of Captain America and the ability to simply get the job done like Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), who in the heck is Natasha Romanoff?

Those questions may be answered with “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.”

“Well, other than being in physical therapy for the rest of my life, I think this is the first time that we’ve really gotten to see kind of Natasha,” said Johansson, whose ‘physical therapy’ remark elicited laughter at the press conference. “We saw a little bit of her in ‘Avengers’ and we saw a bit of her back story, but – we’ll see more of that in ‘Avengers II,’ but in this film, we really get to see Natasha as a person who gets up, gets ready for work in the morning, has a life outside of just her job once she’s out of the suit.”
