Later in 2023, Marvel Strike Force will introduce a fourth original character, Vahl, the game's first non-binary character. Vahl is one of the first Asgardians and keeper of Valhalla.
  • Age of Apocalypse Finale: In 2022, Marvel Strike Force introduced an epic year-long narrative arc – the Age of Apocalypse, bringing together fan-favorite characters like Morgan Le Fay, Rogue, Red Hulk and Archangel as horsemen in service of Apocalypse.
