Build friendships with heroes such as Wolverine, Iron Man, Dr Strange, and Captain Marvel in a tactical RPG from Firaxis.

“When we were first designing combat in Marvel’s Midnight Suns, we quickly realized that the mechanics of XCOM wouldn’t work in this game," he said. "In XCOM, you take a group of soldiers and they are outmanned and outgunned by the alien threat. In Marvel’s Midnight Suns, you are a superhero and you should feel like the coolest person on the battlefield. Those mechanics from XCOM that were designed for that game didn’t translate to Marvel’s Midnight Suns, and we can say that combat in this game is completely different.”

 

As one example, a 2K rep suggested that it doesn't make sense for heroes to miss punches, which means that hit chance percentages are probably out. Solomon also said that combat "plays much, much faster" than in the XCOM games. It's all a bit hard to explain without showing it, I'm told, so we should get some clarity when the gameplay trailer premieres next week.

They said there is no permanent death/ko. They are fine after the battle.

 

You know Marvel would never allow firraxxis to just let heroes die.

 

This is similar to XCOM: Chimera Squad.  I would assume this game and Chimera Squad will have several similarities.  It is a good game... give it a shot if you haven't.

 

Characters in Chimera Squad can get knocked out during a mission and can require time in a training room to heal before they can be deployed again.  They can also acquire negative traits from being injured that also require training room time to eliminate that also takes them out of commission for a while.  The training room can also be used on healthy characters to add new positive traits.
