There’s just over a week to go until Sanzaru Games launch the eagerly awaited Marvel Powers United VR exclusively for Oculus Rift. The studio has been upping the anticipation by drip feeding information about which characters will be playable and those who’ll play the bosses players will need to defeat. As the last couple of Tuesdays has seen a couple of villains being revealed today is no different, with Madama Hydra and Scientist Supreme both making and appearance.
The two new villains to Marvel Powers United VR’s boss roster help to up the evil female element for the title, with Madame Hydra being a master assassin while the Scientist Supreme has genius level intellect and plenty of gadgets to help protect themselves.
As with most Marvel characters and the universe they come from, will sometimes alter their abilities and personality traits. So for this Madame Hydra the synopsis explains: “From the shadows she rose, a sleeper agent to assassin to command of Hydra forces. A master at espionage and excellent strategist, Madame Hydra has eliminated all her adversaries with a skilled hand. Now she has her sights set on the domination of Earth, believing that Hydra and The Masters of Evil will bring true order to the universe.”
While the Scientist Supreme has been both male and female, for the videogame its the latter: “The genius leader of A.I.M., the Scientist Supreme leads attacks on planets for the Masters of Evil. Utilizing A.I.M. technology with the support of ground forces from Hydra, the Kree, and Ultron for the mighty Thanos, she is determined to decimate anyone who stands in their path.”
