Women of Marvel Marvel's Avengers

The time has come -- tomorrow, Marvel's Avengers hits video game platforms everywhere! On this episode of Women of Marvel, co-hosts Angélique Roché, and Ellie Pyle welcome some of the members of the game's creative team -- Hannah MacLeod (Narrative Designer), Rose Hunt (Senior Producer), and Magali Stretton (Senior Game Designer). During their conversation about the highly-anticipated game, they share some of their favorite stories from putting the game together, as well as advice for people just getting started in the video game industry.

Here's a peek at what they talked about:

"Our main character, Kamala [Khan], really changed my mind about what a Super Hero story could be. She’s a fangirl and she writes fanfiction, which is stuff that I did growing up…  It’s really cool, because it finally feels like 12-year-old me has a place among Super Heroes.” - Hannah MacLeod

"The narrative aspect of games that I love is the fact that you have to start thinking of storytelling on a bigger scale. Everything becomes part of the story. So suddenly, the way you customize your Hulk or your Black Widow or your Kamala, tells a story that is different from what someone else would do. But it’s your part of that universe.” - Magali Stretton

Marvel’s Avengers will release simultaneously for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Stadia, and PC on September 4!
