New Spider-Man and Magik Suits Revealed in Official Midnight Suns Art
Marvel Comics has released a new variant cover that features the brand new costumes for Spider-Man and Magik in the upcoming Midnight Suns video game.
With the next video game Marvel’s Midnight Suns which will be released in December, Marvel has revealed the game’s new looks for Spider Man and Magic in a new variant cover for the midnight suns comedy series. The Midnight Suns aren’t your usual superhero team, and with members like Blade, Ghost Rider, and more, they’ve been known to be a bit extreme in their methods.
The Midnight Sons are Marvel’s sporadically formed team of supernatural anti-heroes who most often face off against mystical and demonic foes. The team first formed in 1992 Ghost Rider #31 by Howard Mackie and Andy Kubert, in order to fight Lilith, Satan’s wife. Although members change frequently, some notable ones include: Ghost Riders Danny Ketch and Johnny Blaze, Blade, Morbius and Doctor Strange. Over the years, the Midnight Sons have become better known for being filled with heroes with magical powers and for going to great lengths to save the day.
From now on, Firaxis Games, in association with Marvel Games, will release midnight suns, a tactical RPG game based on the team, but which will also include more famous heroes, such as Iron Man and Captain Marvel. To celebrate, Marvel Comics is releasing variant covers that feature classic heroes in their new Marvel’s Midnight Suns armor. Marvel also launched a new midnight suns comedy series by Ethan Sacks and Luigi Zagaria. With a new variant cover from artist Seamas Gallagher, fans get their first look at what Spider-Man and Magik will look like in-game.
Officially listed as “Midnight Suns Armor“, each hero is decked out in gold and black suits. Spider-Man in particular has a striking gold webbing pattern on the top of his mask and forearms. His form-fitting suit shows off its more armor-like elements in his shoulder pad design, red eyes, and leather gloves.The white spider symbol is the most prominent feature, sporting an almost white-hot golden fire design.However, where Spider-Man’s fire is simple in design, the one of Magik is very literal.With glowing flames extending from her sword as well as her flaming horns and whip-like tail, the X-Men’s Queen of Limbo looks far more demonic than human. .Her armor is of medieval design and is very reminiscent of the armor she manifests on her left arm when she uses her powers and her sword.This manifested armor is now burning hot, with fire engulfing her from elbow to end fingers. These are two badass designs for the characters and are sure to get many excited about the possibilities of the game to come.
All in all, this new variant cover gives fans a glimpse of the amazing design work being done for Marvel’s Midnight Suns. Spider Man and Magic have never looked scary in their new armor designs, and with more characters, like Wolverine, sure to be previewed in future issues, the anticipation for Marvel’s new video game will only grow. Midnight Suns #1 is out in comic stores now, and Midnight Suns Wonders will be available on all platforms from December 22.
