Exclusive First Look At Marvel Strike Force's Original Spider-Verse Character

In 2021, Marvel Strike Force developer Scopely announced Kestrel, the first all-original character in the massive roster of its hero-collecting mobile RPG, designed in collaboration with Marvel. Kestrel is the long-lost founder of STRIKE, the in-universe organization for which the game is named. Later in that same year, the studio revealed Deathpool, a second original character that imagined what a child of Deadpool and Death would look and act like. While Deathpool originated as a part of Deadpool’s 30th anniversary, the studio’s third original character comes as a result of Spider-Man’s 60th anniversary.

“With Spider-Man’s 60th anniversary happening, Marvel came to us and they asked us, ‘Hey, could you come up with a new, original Spider-Verse character?’ – no pressure there,” Marvel Strike Force creative director Sean Dugan says with a chuckle. “There’s this big responsibility because not only is it a Spider-Verse character, it’s a Marvel character. So how do you come up with something that is new, fresh, innovative, something you haven’t seen before in the Spider-Verse? So our team started gathering ideas and one of the things that came up was the notion of this Navajo figure, the Spider Woman Na’ashjeii Asdzáá.”
