Marvel's Midnight Suns has been slowly detailing its heroes in the run-up to the game's October launch, and the latest Spotlight video features Captain Marvel.

The latest Hero Spotlight video for Marvel's Midnight Suns introduces Captain Marvel, showing off some of her combat moves and giving a little more info on her background.

While the video shows off Captain Marvel in action, we also get a little of her backstory over on the Marvel's Midnight Suns site: "A driven Air Force pilot and security agent, Carol Danvers dreamt of one day going to space. Her day job was to investigate and safeguard the American space program from disruption by alien attackers. However, it was her own life that was ultimately disrupted when a Kree device triggered her half alien DNA and awakened her human/Kree hybrid abilities." Under the name of Captain Marvel, "Carol wields superhuman strength and can not only fly, but can also achieve interstellar flight under her own power. Her intimate connection to space also allows her to harness and direct vast cosmic energy, working alongside the Avengers to defeat intergalactic enemies."

Following the pattern of Marvel's Midnight Suns' other Hero Spotlights, we should see gameplay for Captain Marvel pretty soon. We've also had a look at Spider-Man, Iron Man, and Captain America — what do you think of what we've seen so far? Players seem to be divided on what to expect from the turn-based combat; what do you think? Let us know in the comments!
