A new character skin for Marvel’s Avengers gives Captain America a more fantasy-inspired look that should be familiar to comic book fans,


Marvel’s Avengers has given fans of Captain America a new skin to fight the forces of evil in. This latest offering continues Crystal Dynamics’ consistent drip-feed of new cosmetics for Marvel’s Avengers, and it may be of particular interest not just to fans interested in a rather different look for Steve Rodgers, but for fans of the Planet Hulk comics.


Not to be confused with the original Incredible Hulk storyline of the same name that was loosely adapted in Thor: Ragnarok, the Planet Hulk comic series was a 2015 offshoot of Marvel’s multiverse-destroying Secret Wars storyline. Among the characters it introduced was an alternate universe version of Steve who ends up in Battleworld, a patchwork reality made from pieces of broken universes, and has to battle his way across a hostile domain inhabited by numerous wild Hulks.

And Marvel’s Avengers players can take that gladiatorial version of Captain America for a spin. Known simply as “Gladiator,” the new skin is now available in the game’s marketplace, following Hulk’s Thor: Ragnarok skin as the latest cosmetic inspired by Planet Hulk to be added to the game.

Gone is the usual clean-shaven Cap with his typical military tactical suit. In his place is a Steve Rodgers decked out in medieval armor and sporting long hair and a beard. Looking sort of like Thor’s long-lost brother, Gladiator Steve still boasts his shield, though hardcore comic fans may be disappointed to see that he’s missing the battleaxe he wielded in Planet Hulk. Even so, the new skin should pair nicely with the recently added magic Iron Man skin, Hulk’s gladiator outfit, most Thor skins, and Jane Foster’s Mighty Thor.

There are actually quite a few treats for Captain America players in Marvel’s Avengers’ marketplace right now. He’s the featured hero in the game’s store until October 27, which means players get 50% off on nearly all Cap-centric cosmetic items. This includes most of Marvel’s Avengers’ Captain America skins, with the exceptions of the new Gladiator skin and Cap’s MCU outfits.

Whether slick new cosmetics like Gladiator Captain America will be enough to keep players coming back to Marvel’s Avengers in light of the game’s rocky lifespan and content roadmap will likely vary from player to player. Even if it doesn’t, though, fans of Steve Rodgers at least have plenty to look forward to in the near future thanks to Skydance’s currently untitled Marvel game starring Cap and Black Panther in World War 2. At any rate, Marvel fans shouldn’t be running low on opportunities to swing Steve’s shield around any time soon.

Marvel’s Avengers is available for PC, PS4, PS5, Stadia, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
