According to Hypex, several more Marvel characters will be added. Among these are Black Panther, Hulk, and Wolverine. Until now, mythic items had been assigned to Dr. Doom, Silver Surfer, and Groot. From the looks of it, Thor, Iron Man, and Black Panther might get their abilities too. However, there has been no confirmation about the timeline for these so far.

According to Dr Pineapplez, the challenge which involves a Spiderman logo is a hint and could mean that they will add his skin later on. However, Hypex’s tweet mentioned specific abilities for Black Panther, Wolverine, Hulk, Thor, Iron Man, and Storm. Audio files have been added in the game, and according to Hypex, the ability will be ‘Kinetic Absorption.’

As for Iron Man and Hulk, their mythic abilities might come sooner than that of the others. The Iron Man skin has already been added along with Thor (Herald). It is only a matter of time before a Stark POI shows up on the map with a mythic ability.

All the information that has surfaced so far suggests a huge collaboration. Galactus might be the end of Chapter 2. Thus, it is only fitting that Epic Games will bring out all the big guns to protect the island. For now, it is a blessing to get these mythic abilities as they change the dynamic of the game substantially.
