Ever since the developers at Gazillion relaunched their Marvel ARPG game as Marvel Heroes 2015 fans knew when that year came around it was going to be big for the game. The first hint that that was going to be the case came recently when Gazillion announced their Advance Pack 2, an offer at two price points to pre-purchase all 12 of their scheduled playable heroes plus (in the deluxe pack) an extra costume for all 12, the May “Mayday” Parker, The Spectacular Spider-Girl Enhanced Costume for Spider-Man, the Marvel NOW black variant costume for the upcoming 2014 release of Magneto and a pile of in-game items/other goodies.

Of the twelve 2015 heroes, ten were announced in a 'soft' order of their launch and this does not include X-23, who comes as an early (before October 10) order bonus in anticipation for her release in December of this year.

With added details about their potential play-style from Gazillion's Jeff “Doomsaw” Donais, the ten announced heroes (and villains) are:

Iceman

“Bobby Drake, aka Iceman, is one of the most classic Marvel Heroes and we're very happy to introduce him into the game. Both as a member of Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends and many incarnations of the X-Men, Iceman is one of the most exciting and powerful mutants in the Marvel Universe.”

“Iceman almost made the cut for Advance Pack 1, but we wanted to take some extra time to make his ice as interesting as possible using the graphics engine (as well as use his Omega-Level powers in as many ways as possible). With all the new tech were built into the game over the last year, we're satisfied we can do an outstanding job with Iceman in Marvel Heroes.”

Doctor Doom

“Dr. Doom is a traditional villain who had a turn cooperating with heroes in several storylines, including the Future Foundation story. He is arguably one of the most iconic personas in the Marvel Heroes world and has a significant beef with Thanos on the horizon.”

“Doom will have several playstyle options in Marvel Heroes. He is a Tyrant, a Sorcerer and a Gifted Inventor. He will have access to Physical attacks, Mental (Sorcery) powers and Energy powers based on his armor and other inventions.”

“He will be a flexible hero and is one of the most likely to be a high-cost hero (although that's not relevant for the Advance Pack 2 owners).”

War Machine

“As you would expect, War Machine in Marvel Heroes means a massive amount of firepower being brought to the table. Focusing on physical damage with missiles, melee, machine guns, and even wrist-mounted shotguns, War Machine's gameplay relies on managing the immense amount of heat produced by such an arsenal and is equipped to mow down just about any enemy, near or far.”

Kitty Pryde & Lockheed

“Kitty Pryde is one of the most iconic X-Men of all time, from her first appearance onward, Kitty has been capturing the hearts of fans with her awesome phasing powers and unique alien ally, Lockheed! In Marvel Heroes, Kitty Pryde will be able to utilize her martial arts abilities, mutant phasing powers, and fire breath of her permanently summoned ally, Lockheed.”

Vision

“Vision has always been at the top of the list for new heroes to be introduced. His inclusion in the upcoming Avengers 2: Age of Ultron virtually assured him a spot in the Advance Pack 2.”

“Vision has a wide range of powers and several build options for Marvel Heroes. He could be built as a formidable melee hero (due to his density control), a devastating ranged hero (with his various laser blasts) or a combination of both, using various synergistic mechanics. Additionally, as a classic Avenger, he will definitely have some interesting banter with many other heroes.”

She-Hulk

“Not only is Jennifer Walters the cousin of the Incredible Hulk, she's also a pretty awesome superhero in her own right known as She-Hulk! In addition to using her gamma-infused strength to defeat the heaviest of heavies (aiding teams such as the Avengers and FF), She-Hulk also spends much of her time in the courtroom as a lawyer for the Superhuman Law division of a large New York firm.”

“Less smashy than her green-skinned cousin, She-Hulk uses her wits and trained fighting techniques to deliver massive punches and dropkicks to even the most dangerous enemies.”

Winter Soldier

“Winter Soldier made a huge impression outside of the comic book world with his appearance in this year's Captain America: The Winter Soldier, making him the perfect fit as a marquee hero in Advance Pack 2. Using an advanced arsenal from his years as an assassin as well as his iconic metal arm, Winter Soldier is capable of dispatching enemies near and far with deadly precision.”

Blade

“One of the first successful Marvel Heroes to grace the silver screen, Blade (also known as the Daywalker) is an incredibly skilled combatant with various weapons including firearms, custom-made glaives, stakes (made of silver, of course), and his iconic katana blade.”

“While Blade typically uses these as tools against the dark arts (specifically vampires), he has been known to turn his gaze on more conventional threats when the need calls for it.”

Iron Fist

“Danny Rand is known as a few things in the Marvel Universe: the rich, philanthropist (not quite Stark rich, though) Daniel Rand, and the Living Weapon: The Immortal Iron Fist. Using his chi to move and nearly inhuman speeds and making his fist like unto iron, he is able to level mountains with a single punch. In addition to its destructive capabilities, Iron Fist can also focus his chi in more productive ways, such as helpful healing mantras.”

Black Cat

“Felicia Hardy was the daughter of a world-renowned cat burglar (known by the rather to the point moniker, The Cat) who eventually decided to follow in her father's footsteps. Using claws, a grappling hook (for transportation), and a newly upgraded costume made by the Tinkerer, Black Cat is both a formidable melee combatant and the master of unique "trap assassin" type abilities.”
