Midnight Suns

Is there a more badass looking game in 2022 than Marvel's Midnight Suns? I would wager that even those who are not usually into strategy games will be tempted to try this as it looks so cool! This is brought to us by a team that knows exactly what they are doing and they have worked very closely with people at Marvel to craft a story that looks epic in every sense of the word. Today we are taking a closer look at this game to see why I and many other people are so excited about it.

The Mother of Demons

A huge part of what has me excited about Marvel's Midnight Suns is the story. The main antagonist is Lilith, the Mother of Demons who is now working with Hydra and things for the world are looking very grim. A team of heroes led by the likes of Dr. Strange and Iron Man decides to use The Hunter, Lilith’s child to try and fight her off. It sounds like epic stuff and seeing characters that we class as heroes being controlled by Lilith and being bad is very awesome.

The Hunter

A huge part of the appeal of Marvel's Midnight Suns for many people is a brand-new character called The Hunter. The Hunter was created by Firaxis along with the folks at Marvel and they are who we play as. We get to design The Hunter and have them be either male or female as well as select their powers from a vast range so that we can tailor them to our liking. It is pretty cool to have a game with so many iconic Marvel characters, but we play as a brand-new creation.

The Abbey!

While you are not playing the game, The Abbey is where you will be spending your time. Think of The Abbey as your base of operations in Marvel's Midnight Suns. This is where you and your team of heroes live. You are free to walk around in the third person and you can chat with characters and move things along here, it is very “RPG” in what you can do with other characters here. You also can select which of the three heroes you want to take into the next missions with you. Each hero has their own deck of cards that are assigned to you at random and it is these cards that you will use in the turn-based battles that make up most of what this game has to offer.

It Should Be A Movie

If you have not already, I highly recommend that you check out the various shorts that have been posted to the Marvel's Midnight Suns YouTube channel. You get these epic character stories that set things up. The whole game has this very dark, twisted, and interesting take on the world of Marvel. So far, I have not seen a character design that I have not thought was cool and the whole game has a very sinister vibe to it all that I just love. With how good this game looks; I am kind of surprised that they decided to also release it on the last gen consoles and the Nintendo Switch.


I really do hope that Marvel's Midnight Suns finds its audience. I know that some people may be turned off by the turn-based RPG gameplay, but this is the same team that did the awesome Xcom games so I am more than confident that they will know what they are doing. It has a fantastic story and a very cool way of showcasing some of the most iconic Marvel characters. For sure, this has been one of my most anticipated games of 2022!


  • I am loving the story being told in this game
  • It is a very interesting darker take on the world of Marvel
  • It has a great selection of Marvel characters
  • The Hunter is a brand-new character created just for this game!


  • Some may have trouble getting past the fact that this is a turn-based RPG
  • How well will this run on the last gen consoles and the Switch?

Game Reviews

When it was announced, Marvel’s Midnight Suns completely blew me away. The debut trailer, which just showed off the story and the style of the game had my jaw on the floor. It came out of nowhere and then when we got more information about the game, it was pretty surprising to see that this was not some kind of 3rd person action game. It was actually a turn-based strategy game. A turn-based strategy game that is based around the darker side of the Marvel universe? Sign me up and count me in!

The Mother Of Demons

I have to say the story of Marvel’s Midnight Suns is what I am most excited about. Hydra has brought back to life Lilith, The Mother of Demons for their own nefarious needs. The Avengers know that they need some special kind of help with this so they call in The Midnight Suns who are Blade, Ghost Rider, Magik, and Nico Minoru. The real kicker of the story is that we get to create a brand new Marvel character called, The Hunter.

Hunter My Hunter!

The Hunter is the child of Lilith and the only known person to defeat her. You can make The Hunter in Marvel’s Midnight Suns either a male or female character and you have over 40 different superpowers that you can give them. I have played games where I have gotten to make my own superhero before. However, none have gone as in-depth and made them such an integral part of the story like this game is attempting to do.

Hero Up

I already mentioned the Midnight Suns that are in the game, but this game is actually stacked with Marvel Superhero’s that you can interact with and add to your team. There is some great representation here with characters like Iron Man, Wolverine, Captain America, Captain Marvel, and Dr. Strange. It is a great lineup of characters that people know very well along with a few that are a bit more obscure.

X-Men or X-Com!

What really got me excited about Marvel’s Midnight Suns was when it was announced that Firaxis Games the guys and gals that made the amazing X-Com series of games were behind this. This is a tactics/strategy game with a few RPG elements sprinkled on top for good measure. Before a mission, you can explore your home base which is called The Abbey. Here you can communicate with other heroes and in RPG fashion, this can lead to buffs and benefits on the battlefield.

You can take a team of three into a mission and the battles are all tactics based. A bit of a twist here that I think is neat is that you are given a deck of cards before each round. You use these cards to attack, heal, and so on. It is a system that I think is going to have a real learning curve, but once it all clicks, I think this is going to be a game that is very satisfying to play.

I know that some people may be disappointed that Marvel’s Midnight Suns is not an action game. However, I think this is a brave direction for a Marvel game to go. Superhero games tend to be 3rd person action games, that is what we have come to expect.


So seeing someone take a chance and also take a chance with characters are not quite as well known is something I think is really cool. I am very excited about this one, I loved the X-Com games so I have a lot of faith in what these people are doing.


  • The story this game is telling seems epic
  • I like the idea of creating a brand-new Marvel hero
  • It has a great lineup of characters
  • The game is a mixture of strategy, turn based tactics, RPG elements, and action!


  • I do wonder if there will be a steep learning curve with this
  • Will different heroes in your party, change the story at all?
