“The True Believers have spoken, and when they do, the teams at Marvel Games and Marvel Publishing assemble and leap to answer them!” says Marvel Games VP & Creative Director Bill Rosemann. “This time it began with the introduction of the all-new characters K-Pop Super Hero Luna Snow and the delightful duo of Crescent & Io, plus the modern update of secret agent White Fox’s field uniform, in the mobile game Marvel Future Fight.
