Good people of the forums! The holidays are upon us and it's time for a little something special just for you. Right here, right now - exclusively in the forums - it's time to reveal our next Marvel Puzzle Quest hero.

Ladies and gentlemen, we present Luke Cage!

Born and raised in Harlem, this powerful 3-star hero with the nearly-unbreakable skin has lead both the Thunderbolts and the Avengers. Cage is all about power and stamina and is primed and ready for villain-smashing action. Here's a first-look tease at Cage's art and abilities. More will be unveiled early in the new year.

Luke Cage will make his in-game debut on December 30th and will be earnable on January 7th. Cage stars in his own Versus match on January 9th.

Luke Cage Abilities:

Righteous Uppercut (Yellow)

Unbreakable (Red)

Jab, Jab, Cross (Black)

"Sweet Christmas!"

  • In just a tad bit sad "sweet christmas" is not an ability name...

    Glad to see he's a star.pngstar.pngstar.png and not a star.pngstar.pngstar.pngstar.png ! It looks like we might have a little break before the 4 star rain begins.
  • In before the forum explodes with comments about how the devs got around the "no new characters this year" by only giving an "in game preview" on December 30th.

    roster slots need to be cheaper.
    Here's a thought, how about for FUN you decide which Christmas presents you will keep. You can't have them all

    Now all we need is Iron Fist and we've got the original HFH.

    iron fist has been my most desired new character for a long time.
  • What the hell Luke Cage? Who's picking these? What's next, Klaw? Absorbing Man? Grey Gargoyle? Release Cyclops, Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver, you know, characters non-uber nerds have heard of.

    ...


    Luke Cage? Not even Iron Fist? Seriously? Not even Moon Knight?
  • Isn't Luke Cage getting a tv show or something? Maybe something to do with that

    Double ISO-8 would be more appropriate! icon_e_smile.gif

    I know. What kind of sick bastards make a game called MARVEL PUZZLE QUEST and then try to appeal to people who LIKE MARVEL? It's crazy town.
  • Another 3* and another roster slot combined with another 7 day PVE.

    NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE!

    Time to take my Holiday Break from this game.

    Happy Holidays everyone!

    PS: I'll be sure to check out Contest of Champions which is more Injustice like and already has all the best heroes in it.

    Mike Colter was announced to be Luke Cage (Power Man) for a Netflix series called Jessica Jones. So I guess this makes sense, but the color scheme and place in the roster is very Colossus like.

    Looks at Colossus YELLOW RED BLACK. YELLOW (Immovable Object) equates Unbreakable red. RED Colossal Punch equates to Jab Jab Cross Black. BLACK Colossal Fastball special.. Is just awesome. Not sure if it is on the level Yellow Righteous Uppercut.

    I just wish it was a different color scheme.
