If we’ve learned anything from the comics and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it’s that the world is constantly expanding. New villains are always emerging and new heroes are always rushing to stop them. Crystal Dynamics takes the same approach with its game starring Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. Marvel’s Avengers launched with six playable characters, but that’s a far cry from all the heroes we can take control of when all is said and done. Crystal Dynamics has stated that all playable characters will be added at no additional cost, but additional upgrades for these characters could cost money.
