The core rulebook is already available for pre-order, and will be on sale on August 2nd. It has been revamped based on the playtest feedback from the playtest rulebook released ast year. "After receiving thousands of fan responses, the core rulebook now features the new and revamped rules that make for a fun, fast, and dynamic game — including quick character creation, bombastic combat, and hundreds of amazing powers — plus full profiles of dozens of Marvel’s greatest heroes and villains. All that's needed is the book, three standard six-sided dice, and friends!"

This will be followed by Cataclysm of Kang, a collection of six adventures coming later this year. "This book includes new character profiles and features a series of six interlocked adventures. Fans can play through with a new team or character each time, or form a campaign that takes players from street-level heroes to cosmic champions! Both the core rulebook and adventure book are written by award-winning and New York Times best-selling author Matt Forbeck."


Finally, X-Men Expansion will launch in 2024, and will feature the X-Men, their allies and foes, and details of X-Men locations. "This is the first full-sized sourcebook for the Marvel Multiverse Role-Playing Game, and features the most uncanny Super Heroes of all: the X-Men and all their various spin-off teams, greatest allies and most fearsome foes. The X-Men Expansion is jammed full of vital information about Marvel’s most popular mutants, including dozens of new profiles for characters from X-Force, the New Mutants and Marauders. It also includes full-color maps of famous X-Men locations, including the Xavier Institute, Krakoa and Arakko, plus plenty of thrilling twists and turns for an entire campaign. Answer the call and join the X-Men! The creative team for this book will be announced soon."

I do, but I'm not sure Kevin Feige does. Except in the minutes which stretch to hours as he's trying to go to sleep at night, and he sees that dorky-ass hand punching out of the sea and frets over movie after movie and TV show after TV show not mentioning it or acknowledging it at all.

If they manage to re-use it for Genosha, awesome.

(Hilariously there's a very similar situation in World of Warcraft, where a giant sword was stabbed into the planet to try and kill the unborn titan within it, and because they didn't do anything with that plotline, they just don't talk about or even really acknowledge the sword anymore.)
The leaks and rumors suggest that it will in fact be coming back in a big way.

Who killed what? I thought in 2013 Margaret Weis Productions chose not to renew the Marvel license?
Disney killed the license, per Cam Banks, at least as he was describing it on Google-Plus. With several products still in the path; at least one was ready to go to press, but the Disney cancellation... it was a short (few weeks) PDF-only.

Cam has been described as still being bitter about it as of 2020. With G+ closed, I'm no longer in contact with Cam.

I thought the version in red, white, and blue with the adamantium round shield was moderately interesting at times.

I'm very tired, so please excuse me for having to ask this.

Are you joking about the way that so many of the Marvel leads look identical; Captain America, Hawkeye, and Johnny Storm in particular. Added to the mess is Chris Evans playing both Johnny Storm and Cap.

Or is there an actual story where Johnny Storm becomes Cap? Or vice versa?

It is a joke about Chris Evans playing Johnny Storm before his character defining turn as Cap.

I just want to say that while I was primarily a DC reader my whole life, the experience of the MCU from Iron Man to Avengers End Game was an absolute sublime experience and I will always love Marvel for it. I don't really car about the MCU after that (although I enjoyed Loki and Moon Knight) but that 20 movie arc was exactly what superhero movies are meant to be.

Don't forget how future Cortex licenses were cancelled after the purchase of #DnDBeyond, including Masters of the Universe.

He has every right to be bitter, as I know few designers who have as naughty word of luck in this industry.

Edit: naughty word? That's adorable.
