“When blood is shed, let the Staff of One emerge!”
Nico Minoru was raised in an affluent Japanese-American family devoted to charity…or so she thought. In truth, to Nico’s horror, her parents were powerful sorcerers and members of a villainous organization called the Pride. After Nico absorbed the powers from a magical staff, she became a witch with near-boundless powers...except that her magic can be chaotic and unpredictable. Her powers bend to her will, preventing her from hurting an ally or healing an enemy, but precision can be challenging.
A renowned criminal sired a child who he raised as his heir to an insidious secret society and named him Shang-Chi, the “rising and advancing of the spirit.” In a hidden, ancient fortress in China, the boy became adept at both a multitude of martial arts and philosophical disciplines, completely unaware of his father’s evil pursuits.
As a young man, Shang-Chi found himself tasked by the society to assassinate an old enemy of his father’s, but during the mission came into contact with a venerable British secret agent named Smith. The man illuminated the society’s global criminal activities and in doing so set Shang-Chi on a path to declare war on his own father and everything he stood for.

Many things can be said about Amadeus Cho. He's the seventh-smartest person in the world, he's Korean-American, he's friends with the Hulk—and he even became the Hulk himself.
Cho's "totally awesome" intelligence gets him into trouble as often as it gets him out of it. And it all started with a simple internet game that kicked off his Super Hero career...
Young Taekwondo fighter Dan Bi discovers that a magic mask turns her into the dynamic Super Hero Crescent. Together with her magical avatar Io, a 12-foot-tall glowing “half-moon” bear, they set out to find her missing father and to confront the powerful sorceress Morgan Le Fay.

Hailing from Korea, Seol Hee is raised by her grandmother after her parents die tragically. Her name translates to Ice and Hope.
She is an aspiring singer who receives an education at the International Music School of the Gifted. She hopes to use her voice and dancing skills to earn enough money to take care of her elderly grandmother.
When the science-obsessed organization known as A.I.M. ambushed a Stark Industries event where Seol was performing, she bravely attempts to defend the attendees, resulting in A.I.M. soldiers locking her in a hi-tech storage freezer. While trying to escape, she is exposed to the contents of an advanced cold-fusion energy experiment, which unexpectedly grants her control over frozen elements. Using her newfound powers to fight back, Seol surprises and defeats the A.I.M. forces’ attack.
Dubbed “Luna Snow” by the press, Seol’s heroic actions made her an overnight sensation, and she now uses her talents and powers as a part-time pop star and full-time Super Hero!
As an added bonus, Marvel Games’ Senior Director and Co-Creator of Luna Snow, Danny Koo, created this amazing and exclusive piece of art to celebrate with all of you!
