Captain Marvel’s suit gets a remodel inspired by 2017 Secret Empire Series

Marvel’s Avengers revealed a brand-new, alternate Captain America suit that features an original designed inspired by the 2017 Secret Empire series where Cap was a sleeper Hyrda agent.

Tore Blystad, game director at Crystal Dynamics, revealed, “In general, our iconic character designs are a contemporary interpretation of the beloved Marvel heroes with an eye towards believability. Within our world, Tony Stark often has a hand in the finishing touches of each suit.”

Unveiling the new Captain America suit serves another glimpse into the character’s presence in Marvel’s Avengers. Recent tid-bits of information have called his sacrifice on A-Day into question. Another brief look at the hero teased just how robust his combat capabilities will be, especially when compared to some of his fellow Avengers. A different rundown dove into the game’s special attacks, better known as Heroics. Each of the five heroes will have access to three types of Heroic abilities: Support, Assault, and Ultimate. We’ve already gotten hints at what to expect from Captain America.

Captain gets a new striking shield. Its star extends boldly across the disc’s diameter. Captain America’s classic DNA like the star, stripes, and shield merge with new elements such as the military name embroidery.

“The helmet is built from a strong, protective material, and the wing design follows the shape of the helmet rather than extending as in the classic designs,” added Blystad.

The design is a balancing act that pulls from the past to create a modern adaptation of Jack Kirby’s and Bryan Hitch’s original designs

When establishing new aesthetics for the iconic characters, Hitch drilled down to the core of each Super Hero, noting that first and foremost Cap has always been a soldier. As such, Hitch took the classic Captain America look and reinterpreted it with WWII army-issue gear.

“Details like the chin strap makes it a practical and believable helmet to wear for a soldier. The shield has gone through a moderate redesign based on the Marvel’s Avengers story. As the Avengers expand to the West Coast and beyond, Cap needs a shield that represents their new role. The design was modified with a star that reaches further, out of the blue.”

For some of the extra outfits, players will need to unlock them in-game. Meanwhile, others will be purchasable via online storefronts. How exactly this will all play out remains to be seen.

Marvel’s Avengers is slated to launch next year on May 15, 2020 for the PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One
