‘Marvel’s Midnight Suns’ Unveils the Villains of the Game: Lillith’s Army
It is the highly-anticipated video game to come from Marvel, Fraxis Games, and 2K, and with so little explanation about what can be expected, Marvel’s Midnight Suns have now unveiled the villains of the game: Lillith’s Army.
One of the most interesting collectives in Marvel comics, the Midnight Suns are a team of supernatural heroes that join to fight the darkness of the Marvel Universe.
A team that usually consists of some f Marvel’s most interesting heroes, when an announcement was made that video game developers Fraxis Games and 2K would team up to bring to life a brand new tactical roleplaying game around the team.
With very little known about the upcoming title- a title that has already been delayed until early to mid-2023- Marvel’s Midnight Suns has unveiled the villains of the game: Lillith’s Army.

The Twitter account for the title posted a video of the villains present in the game, with some clips of the foes that you’ll face off as The Hunter.
The main focus of the video was none other than Lillith herself, the mother of the game’s lead character, and harbinger of darkness in this incarnation of the Marvel Universe.
Friend or foe? We'll soon know.

The video released also posted some clips of The Scarlett Witch, who will be both friend and foe at various points of the game.
It makes perfect sense considering that Scarlet Witch, in the source material, has long been a hero and villain in various incarnations.
You wouldn't like him when he's angry. And you REALLY won't like him when he's been corrupted! pic.twitter.com/ywFAfdIlYe

There were then subsequent Tweets showing stills of some of the characters that already appeared in the Lillith’s Army video release, including the surprising presence of the Hulk.
Shown in a very cool monstrous, or even demonic form, this version of the Incredible Hulk was certainly one that seems poised to be a major challenge for players of the game.
HE. IS. VENOM.
And he's coming for you! pic.twitter.com/Qh0CZ7TWMV

Alongside him, there were also Tweets showing both Venom and Sabretooth, too equally monstrous characters that will play major parts in aiding Lillith in defeating various Marvel heroes that you assemble throughout the game.
Watch out, chumps! You don't want to cross paths with Sabretooth. pic.twitter.com/em8jCTJga9

Midnight Suns is shaping up to be an amazing addition to Marvel’s video game lineup, and its rooting in tactical RPGs should give fans a change of pace from the open-world style of Spider-Man, and the mission-based gameplay of Marvel’s Avengers.
