Marvel’s Avengers has added Jane Foster’s Asgardian armor from Thor: Love and Thunder, allowing players to deck out Mighty Thor in MCU attire.
A brand-new Marvel’s Avengers skin inspired by Thor: Love and Thunder will give Jane Foster, better known as the Mighty Thor, her MCU attire. Developed by Crystal Dynamics, the multiplayer superhero simulator lets players team up and fight hordes of robots as Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. Marvel’s Avengers added Jane Foster as a playable hero in June, and now the Asgardian heroine will be able to dress as her live-action equivalent.
Despite Marvel’s Avengers adding her as a separate playable character, Jane Foster plays very similarly to the original Thor Odinson. Both characters wield lightning abilities in tandem with the hammer Mjolnir, and many of their animations are actually identical. Still, Marvel’s Avengers did give Mighty Thor some unique moves to differentiate her from her male counterpart. Her All-Mother’s Blessing intrinsic ability promotes switching between melee and ranged attacks, for example, while her Ultimate ability All-Weapon lets her wield the powerful Undrjarn. Crystal Dynamics also created many different Jane Foster outfits for Marvel’s Avengers, letting the mighty hero don costumes inspired by her comic history
A Twitter post from Marvel’s Avengers has revealed an MCU Mighty Thor outfit inspired by the recently-released Thor: Love and Thunder. Like the multiplayer game, the latest film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe sees Jane Foster (played by Natalie Portman) wield Mjolnir and transform into a godly hero. The skin perfectly recreates the character’s Thor: Love and Thunder design, down to Jane’s intricate helmet and reforged hammer. The skin will be available in the Marvel’s Avengers marketplace starting August 18.
While Crystal Dynamics has failed to reveal future plans for the game, leaks suggest that Marvel’s Avengers will add She-Hulk as its next playable hero. A tweet from voice actress Krizia Bajos last year hinted at the emerald attorney’s appearance, though releasing She-Hulk as the game’s next hero could lead to fan backlash if she plays similarly to Hulk. Fans feel that Mighty Thor is too similar to the original Thor, so they will be extremely disappointed if She-Hulk also borrows powers and abilities from her male counterpart.
Marvel’s Avengers has become well-known for its MCU skins, which let players don live-action attire while fighting off AIM bots. Jane Foster’s look from Thor: Love and Thunder is particularly impressive, with the Mighty Thor donning an engraved mask and wielding a cracked Mjolnir. Though the game’s future remains uncertain, fans can now complete their MCU set by dressing every hero in their live-action costumes.
Marvel’s Avengers is available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PC and Google Stadia.
