Many established characters from the X-Men universe such as Caliban, Colossus, Cyclops, Emma Frost, Forge, Gambit, Iceman, Juggernaut, Magneto, Mystique, Nightcrawler, Northstar, Pixie, Pyro, Quicksilver, Surge, Toad and Wolverine make an appearance in the game. At the beginning of the game, players are prompted to choose one of the following core powers for their new mutant character: Density Control: Manipulates a mutant’s body mass, often manifesting as a rocky outer coating. It can be focused on a fist for a devastating punch, or evenly distributed to render the mutant indestructible. The super human durability granted by Density Control is perfect for enduring attacks from large groups of enemies at once. Energy Projection: This mutation allows a variety of energy-based attacks. Rapid-fire bursts take out crowds of weak opponents, while focused beams cut through the toughest armored foes. Energy can be contained and detonated far from the body, enemies can be stunned with disabling blasts to the nervous system, and the wielder can protect themselves with an envelope of raw, crackling power. Shadow Matter: Masters of Shadow Matter can craft indestructible blades out of thin air or use matter displacement to move faster than the eye can see. The Shadow Matter mutation also heightens one’s reflexes, making it easy to take on multiple opponents or deal severe damage to a single target.
