K-Pop star by day, superhero by night, Luna Snow is the bad-ass new character we had all been waiting for. Marvel Games and Korean developer Netmarble Games Corp have released the first sneak peek for the newest addition to “Marvel Future Fight”. The character, Luna Snow is the second original character to be created for the game after the positive fan response to Sharon Rogers—an alternate reality daughter of Steve Rogers and Peggy Carter, who went on to become Captain America herself.
Luna, also known as Seol Hee, became a K-pop star in order to be able to take care of her grandmother who raised her after her parents died. Here’s Luna’s official backstory from Marvel’s website:
Seol Hee was an aspiring singer hoping to use her voice and dancing skills to earn enough money to take care of her elderly grandmother, who has raised Seol since the tragic deaths of her parents. When the science-obsessed organization known as A.I.M. ambushed a Stark Industries event where Seol was performing, Seol bravely attempted to defend the attendees, resulting in A.I.M. soldiers locking her in a hi-tech storage freezer. While trying to escape, Seol was exposed to the contents of an advanced cold-fusion energy experiment, which unexpectedly granted her control over frozen elements. Using her newfound powers to fight back, Seol surprised and defeated the A.I.M. forces’ attack. Dubbed “Luna Snow” by the press, Seol’s heroic actions made her an overnight sensation, and she now uses her talents and powers as a part-time pop star and full-time Super Hero!
According to Marvel, Luna was created in response to fans requesting new characters that are diverse, but in an authentic way. Audiences want heroes that fit into Marvel’s universes organically without feeling like a token and from that came Seol Hee. Art Director Jee-Hyung Lee said this about her:
While Luna Snow began her career as a K-pop artist, she is expressed as a strong, charismatic, and sophisticated female warrior in our game.
Luna Snow is now available to play on “Marvel Future Fight”, which can be found on the App Store® and Google Play™.
