At New York Comic Con, interactive entertainment company, Kabam, announced a new mobile game they were developing entitled, Marvel Realm of Champions. The main premise of the title revolves around a version of Battleworld where different houses associated with your favorite heroes and villains clash to determine the ultimate ruler of the land.
During the Marvel Games panel, we learned the initial eight houses that players could choose from. Recently, Kabam spotlighted one of them, the Patriot Garrison. For a mobile game, there is an impressive amount of world building and you can learn the history of these Sentinels of Liberty below followed by a teaser trailer.
BARON TITLE: President
HIGHEST ELEVATION: 5,725 feet
This land is made of shattered pieces from an alternate world where it was Howard Stark, not Dr. Erskine, who was shot while Steve Rogers first became the hero known as Captain America. The growing S.S.R. organization’s technological development was cut short with the loss of Stark, so their focus turned from firepower to manpower thanks to the work of Dr. Erskine’s super soldier serum. Erskine becoming key in deciding who would gain access to his serum, including many members of a group known as “The Howling Commandos”.
When their reality was torn asunder to be part of the Battleworld, the collected forces of the Garrison immediately looked to unseat the mad dictator Maestro. It was Steve Rogers who once again lead a charge to enforce the will of democracy on this seemingly lawless land. Clad in armor which was created from the few remaining Stark plans, he now called himself the Civil Warrior. Sadly, their rebellion managed only to enrage the green goliath. Maestro struck down the Civil Warrior, scattered the rebelling forces, and used his might to literally freeze the Garrison in time while he considered a more suitable punishment.
With the mysterious death of the Maestro the Garrison marches once again, lead by serum-enhanced President. The Patriot Garrison itself is in a strategic position amongst some of the most powerful houses in Battleworld. The populace hope to be a force for justice, but there are dark corners of the Garrison who perhaps thirst for power and expansion of their own. Nevertheless, the chaotic Battleworld is in need of their moral strength now more than ever, particularly as a counterpoint to the expanding House of Iron.
What an imaginative take on the Marvel Universe like having their leader, Peggy Carter, enhanced by the super soldier serum and carrying Captain America’s iconic shield. I can’t wait to learn more about the other seven houses. Marvel Realm of Champions will release some time next year.
