Marvel’s Avengers sees Earth’s Mightiest Heroes reassemble to battle A.I.M. and M.O.D.O.Okay., and each show to be greater than a match for the superhero group. Whereas the sport ends in a method which units the stage for what comes subsequent, there are many hints alongside the way in which about what followers can count on from a attainable sequel, together with who the lead villain will find yourself being.
With that in thoughts, we’re now taking a more in-depth take a look at ten attainable dangerous guys the group might face subsequent time round, based mostly on each what’s revealed within the sport and good old style hypothesis.
The Avengers have one heck of a rogues gallery, however we have chosen these particular villains due to what they may carry to a online game setting (and the way a lot enjoyable it could be to battle them).
To try our prime picks, click on on the “Subsequent” button under (attainable spoilers do observe).
We meet Hank Pym in Marvel’s Avengers, however due to A.I.M., if he tries to vary dimension, he’ll die.
That is sure to have pushed the one-time Ant-Man to the sting, however he is been focusing his efforts on repurposing A.I.M. tech to create a robotic assistant. There are no Ultron hints simply but, however it positively seems like issues might head in that path, with Hank probably heading down a villainous path.
The benefit to a villain like this, after all, is that Earth’s Mightiest Heroes will be pitted in opposition to Ultron’s robotic military, one thing which must be as a lot enjoyable as bashing A.I.M.’s forces.
By the point the sport reaches its finish, S.H.I.E.L.D. has been reformed, however it’s clearly going to take a while for the world to place their religion in them following the harrowing occasions of A-Day.
The emergence of a rival unit like H.A.M.M.E.R. has a tonne of potential, and whereas we doubt it could be led by Norman Osborn, there are different attainable villains who might take his place (perhaps even a returning M.O.D.O.Okay. as we by no means truly see him die following the ultimate battle).
No matter whose in cost, if this results in the introduction of the Darkish Avengers, even higher!
8. The Kree
M.O.D.O.Okay. unexpectedly takes cost of a Kree Sentinel throughout his remaining confrontation with The Avengers, and a mid-credits scene exhibits some kind of probe being shot from that into outer area.
Widespread sense says that is getting used to alert the Kree, one thing that would very properly carry them to Earth…or ship Earth’s Mightiest Heroes into the cosmos. Both possibility is massively thrilling, particularly if it results in a free adaptation of the basic Kree/Skrull Conflict from the comedian books.
Pitting The Avengers in opposition to Kree know-how would even be a giant improve from A.I.M.’s forces.
7. Masters Of Evil
There have been quite a few iterations of the Masters of Evil, and Crystal Dynamics might fairly actually take their choose in the case of which comedian e-book villains assemble to tackle The Avengers.
Normally, their major motive is to defeat or humiliate Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, and previous leaders have included each Baron Zemos, Ultron, the Mandarin, Klaw, Physician Octopus, Egghead, the Crimson Cowl, Machinesmith, Whirlwind, the Hood, Jonas Harrow, Max Fury and Lightmaster. We would be joyful to see any one in all them take cost, particularly as they may all be reinvented for the sport.
Plus, this might be the perfect place for the Abomination to make his return to focus on The Hulk.
Whereas the world now is aware of that The Avengers aren’t evil, it in all probability would not take a lot for the general public to root for a superhero group who weren’t concerned with the disaster which passed off on A-Day.
That is the place the Thunderbolts might are available; launched as a substitute of types for Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, gamers might be given the chance to truly take management of them too, just for it to later be revealed that they are villains posing as superheroes (similar to within the comedian books).
This might truly tie into the aforementioned Masters of Evil completely, and make for a enjoyable story.
5. The Inhumans
Terrigen was clearly a large a part of Marvel’s Avengers, although its origins have been by no means absolutely explored. There have been actually hints with that Kree Sentinel showing, however a sequel has the chance to take a deep dive into who and what the Inhumans are and what which means for these heroes.
Arriving on Earth to probably take their fellow Inhumans “residence” to Attilan, Ms. Marvel might discover herself caught in the course of the 2 groups, and it could be even higher if it means gamers are capable of take management of Black Bolt and firm (simply think about having the ability to unleash his formidable powers).
Whereas we’re certain they might finally team-up, the Inhumans might make nice antagonists to begin with.
4. Physician Doom
Whereas Physician Doom is a Unbelievable 4 villain, there is not any purpose to suspect that he could be off limits to Crystal Dynamics for the Marvel’s Avengers sequel. Taking the group to Latveria could be a blast, and battling Doombots of various energy would make for a pleasant substitute for A.I.M.
Past that, there’s in all probability a fantastic story which might be informed if The Avengers have been to invade a sovereign nation, and giving this sequel a good better worldwide really feel actually would not harm.
Doom is likely one of the Marvel Universe’s biggest villains, so it could be nice to see him get his due right here, particularly if it coincides with him making his Marvel Cinematic Universe arrival as properly.
3. Kang The Conqueror
Time-travel was talked about within the mid-credits scene, and if Crystal Dynamics can successfully breathe new life into M.O.D.O.Okay., then the identical might little question be the case for Kang the Conqueror too.
The prospect of travelling via time as Earth’s Mightiest Heroes is an exhilarating one – simply image revisiting World Conflict II as Captain America – and that international “Conflict Desk” might be changed for one that permits gamers to choose which period interval they need to go to for numerous missions.
Kang is a good villain, and one we’ve not seen anyplace close to sufficient of on display to date.
2. Black Order
Despatched to Earth by Thanos to weaken Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, we obtained to know the Black Order in Avengers: Infinity Conflict, however they did not obtain anyplace close to as a lot screentime as they deserved.
For probably the most half, they have been missed in that film, and so a sport like this might actually do them justice and flesh out their respective story arcs. Every of them would make for excellent boss battles too, one thing the primary sport positively would have benefited from utilising extra usually.
In fact, if we’re getting the Black Order, there is a sure somebody who ought to be part of them…
Sure, we have seen loads of the Mad Titan on the massive display, however that does not imply a brand new spin could not be placed on him in a sequel to Marvel’s Avengers. In spite of everything, there are many tales to choose from to base this sport off, and the Infinity Stones are at all times a enjoyable idea to mess around with.
Having to trace them down in heist-style missions might be a blast, and a pleasant option to shake issues up in a sequel and probably transfer away from a few of the ideas launched within the first sport.
There is a purpose Thanos is so beloved, and upgrading Earth’s Mightiest Heroes with cosmic tech must be epic…significantly if it finally ends up involving the Infinity Stones indirectly, form, or type.
