Marvel Avengers Academy, one of the better games of the genre, is getting ready to welcome Ultron, that opinionated AI, in a new event starting today. Along with Ultron come Jocasta, Viv Vision, Kate Bishop, Hawkeye, and everyone’s pizza-loving dog, Lucky. If you haven’t had a chance to read Matt Fraction and David Aja’s fantastic HAWKEYE comic series, know that it’s easily one of the best in Marvel’s collection right now and, more importantly, contains an issue all about seeing the world through Lucky’s eyes. According to Allen Warner, Hawkeye was the most-requested character, and what they like about him is that he brings that “blue-collar, down-to-earth vibe" to the school along with his own abilities. Part of the fun is watching someone like Hawkeye try to fit into a school made by and for superheroes.
In addition to the “old" Hawkeye, we are getting Kate Bishop, the new Hawkeye. The story will be filled with nods to their “entertaining" relationship during the HAWKEYE comic series, which should make it fun for those who’ve read it. And then you have Lucky, who will be recruitable in the Ultron event and will come with a full storyline, visuals levels, and more. There’s a lot more info on the new event here, so go read about the new heroes in detail. As for the event, the heroes will have to get into Ultron’s buildings and sabotage his operation while also training S.H.I.E.L.D. recruits to help. Get ready for some Ultron, Hawkeye, Kate Bishop, and Lucky.
