Marvel’s Midnight Suns Developer Firaxis Games and 2K Games have released a new game showcase for the playable character Magik. As stated in previous trailers for Marvel’s Midnight Sunshis ability to teleport enemies features prominently in his mechanic and should pair nicely with pretty much any other hero on the game’s roster.
While teleporting enemies might seem pretty basic at first, the possibilities for this are quite wide and expansive. For example, Magik can use portals to gather a group of enemies to be attacked with other abilities or even take out a particularly twisted enemy for a turn with certain cards. You can see the game showcase for Magik at Marvel’s Midnight Suns for you embedded below:

While portals are by far the big highlight of Magik’s gameplay showcase, the character does have an impressive heroic ability in the form of Darkchylde, which makes her briefly invulnerable and taunts every enemy on the map. When upgraded, Magik will also counter each time she is hit during that turn. In short, it’s a good way to take a breather and deal serious damage to enemies at the same time.
