First thing I thought of when I saw the title:

Spirits of Vengeance: Rise of the Midnight Sons: Mackie, Howard, Kaminski,  Len, Cooper, Chris, Chichester, D.G., Kubert, Andy, Kubert, Adam, Wagner,  Ron, Case, Richard: 9781302901035: Books - Amazon.ca

Early 90s Marvel grimdark books.  Looks like that's at least part of the inspiration with hell-ified versions of characters like Wolverine, Iron Man, Captain Marvel and Captain America? 

 

I mean, it's a tactical game from Firaxis, and it's Marvel, so I'm going to at least look at it.  Please be good. 

 

Is it wrong that I kind of want to go back and play Freedom Force now?

I'm surprised this thread wasn't updated after the game's release as it's been very well received critically.

I wasn't expecting Persona and Fire Emblem inspired social aspects to the game, and that's really caught my interest and left me wanting to check it out at some point in the future.
