Do we have any Club Penguin fans? What about Marvel super hero fans? Well, penguins are now assembling as Marvel Super Heroes and Super Villains in Disney’s Club Penguin for this year’s all-new Marvel Super Hero Takeover event. Disney’s Club Penguin is the number one virtual world for kids. Penguins are called to defend the city of Penguintropolis by bringing members dressed as Marvel Super Villains to justice before they take over. Members will first choose sides and then can suit up in over 25 Marvel costumes.
“Last year’s partnership event with Marvel was extremely popular, and at that time, became the most-trafficked event in our history,” said Chris Heatherly, Vice President and General Manager, Disney Interactive Worlds. “This year we’ve made the Marvel Super Hero Takeover Event even more epic for players with twice the amount of Marvel Super Hero and Super Villain costume options and deeper, more action-packed gameplay and storylines.”
“The fan reaction from last year’s Marvel Super Hero Takeover was tremendous, so we are excited to once again give fans the opportunity to dress up as their favorite Marvel Super Heroes in Club Penguin,” said Andreea Enache-Thune, Senior Vice-President of Marvel Games. “This year we were able to expand upon last year’s offering by including cool new costumes from our upcoming Marvel animated series on Disney XD.”
During the Marvel Super Hero Takeover event:
- Members can suit up in 27 different Marvel Super Hero and Super Villain costumes, while all players can dress as cops, robbers and civilians
- Super Heroes can plan their defense strategy in the Hero Lab, while Super Villains can scheme in the Villain HQ, building eight different kinds of destructive robots
- Members can buy new super igloos like the Secret Base, an impenetrable HQ perfect for Super Heroes, while Super Villains will feel right at home in the new Creepy Cavern
- Marvel costumes feature characters from the series “Marvel’s Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.” including She-Hulk, A-Bomb, Red Hulk and Skaar. The series premieres August 11 inside Marvel Universe on Disney XD. Club Penguin fans of “Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man” can also dress up just like Iron Spider. And don’t forget Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America and Thor, who assemble in “Marvel’s Avengers Assemble” with a one-hour preview May 26 and launching on July 7 inside Marvel Universe on Disney XD.
