Monster Hunter's attacks are based on her titular game series, and her weapons are crafted from the bones of the various beasts that she defeated. Her gameplay style is very straightforward and she using chained combos to dish out devasting damage to her opponents.

The latter can use her Great Sword to cause more damage and her bow to fire projectiles from a distance. Monster Hunter's ability to use multiple weapon classes will make her one of the most diverse characters in the roster. Monster Hunter was first seen in the sequel's story mode as an ally of Black Panther in Valkanda.

While gaming fans will have to wait for Black Widow, Winter Soldier, and Venom's announcement in the sequel, they will be certainly disappointed knowing that X-Men and Fantastic Four characters are not included in the roster.
