Marvel's Midnight Suns Details the History of Its All-New Hero

Marvel's Midnight Suns developer Firaxis Games and 2K have been releasing trailers spotlighting the upcoming video game's heroes, their histories, and their gameplay mechanics for weeks now, but the most recent subject is by far the most interesting. The Hunter is an all-new hero created specifically for Marvel's Midnight Suns, and while the developer isn't spoiling everything, the latest trailer going into the history of The Hunter is still worth a watch for anyone even mildly intrigued.

Despite being an original character, The Hunter's background is pulled in large part from the greater Marvel canon. While The Hunter can be customized in terms of physical appearance, gender, hair, and combat styles, there are some specifics set in stone. The Hunter is the child of Lilith, who first appeared in Ghost Rider #28 in 1992. The game's origin for Lilith makes her an immortal sorceress that fell in love with a mortal man before he died of the plague, which twisted her into a demonic character. You can watch the whole fascinating video for yourself below:
