It wouldn't be based on PS4. This game isn't based on any one version of the Marvel universe and is intended to be multi platform. But I'll allow the submissionJob 8:
New York City (Spiderman PS4)
It could Fourside-like stage, but it Takes place at New York City, where Spiderman originated. The are no Hazards here, but there are Cameo Places in Background like Avengers Tower or Restaurant from SpiderVerse.
Captain Marvel is a Superheroine from Marvel franchise. Carol was used to be Air-Force pilot, but she was fused with Alien DNA to become Captain Marvel!
Captain Marvel could use a lot of her Superpowers in the Fight, especially on Platform Fighter game. She is also popular and she could deserve the Attention on the Roster!
Ms. Marvel/Kamala Khan
There are a lot of characters that I thought about nominating (the Invisible Woman, the Wasp, Captain Marvel, Squirrel Girl...), but I figure we should get some new blood in here - most of the roster so far has been from the 60's or earlier, with the exception of Wolverine (the 70's).
Ms. Marvel definitely seems like one of Marvel's biggest break-out hits in recent years. Caught in a cloud of Terrigen Mists (back when Marvel was heavily pushing the Inhumans due to petty movie license squabbles), New Jersey teenager Kamala Khan discovered her Inhuman powers and took up the unused pseudonym of her idol Carol Danvers to become the shape-changing Ms. Marvel.
Kamala has the ability to stretch and grow her body, which seems like it would be well-suited for a platform fighter between giant hands, extendable limbs, etc. (Though she uses it differently from Mr. Fantastic, so there shouldn't be overlap if they both get in) She's popular/important enough to play a starring role in the Square-Enix Avengers video game, and readers have quickly formed a connection with her because she's a huge fan of super heroes.
I'd nominate Wasp (Janet van Dyne). And I want her to always be small and looking like Tinker Bell on the battlefield, just to show an idea for how Fairy Girl could work in a platform fighter using my book characters, or if Sakurai looks for Fourth-Party characters and I give him Fairy Girl. However, since Wasp has size-shifting powers like her husband Ant-Man, she can grow for Smash attacks, and she can throw objects that she enlarged with Pym Particles. And you can't forget her Stingers which allows her to fire blasts from her hands, and so happens to be the inspiration of Fairy Girl's fairy bolts. But Fairy Girl can't copy Wasp's size-changing moves because I couldn't work out how her clothes (including her backpack with all her stuff!) can shrink with her, as she isn't the wife of a scientist who uses shrinking tech to study ants, Fairy Girl is just a 5-inch-tall half-alien. And it's good that I'm distancing her from Wasp even though I'm making her more like a tiny Supergirl. Oh, right we're nominating a Marvel character for a hypothetical Marvel Smash game.
Wasp is my nomination.
Job #10: Storm
View attachment 336281
Storm is one of the X-Men’s longest running and most iconic members. Storm was one of the first black comic book characters and one of the first black female comic book characters as well, only behind Misty Knight. Storm (AKA Ororo Munroe) was a orphan and pick-pocket thief, when her parents died in a plane crash. Eventually, she went south towards the Serengeti plans and used her mutant gifts to help locals and become a goddess. She eventually met Charles Xavier and accepted his offer to join the X-Men. Storm can manipulate all different forms of weather. She could send gusts of winds, lightning out of the sky, and bad hail storms to appear, pretty much anything involving the weather.
This is amazing!I'm not sure if anyone here is familiar with Jump Super Stars or Jump Ultimate Stars for the DS (basically, it was a Smash Bros.-like game starring characters from the magazine Weekly Shonen Jump, which produced manga like Dragon Ball, Naruto, One Piece, and JoJo's Bizarre Adventure), but I'm tempted to make sprites similar to what that game had, even if it's just a single standing sprite for the playable characters.
That game also had panels which were used to represent playable characters, assists, or passive supports depending on the size of the panels in question (4 or bigger were playable characters, 2-3 were assists, and 1 were the passive abilities), so I'm definitely going to try to make those for this roster. (at the very least, it gives me a reason to look into series that I might not have otherwise looked into) For an example, here's my take on Dr. Doom:

Admittedly, I don't know how likely it is that I'd be able to make sprites for everyone (for Doom, I used a pre-existing sprite - that might work for the likes of Spider-Man, Wolverine, or Captain America, but it might not work for everyone), but I'm willing to try, at least.
Maybe a mix of the two? I'm sure there's some aspects of Jump Ultimate Stars that people would like (such as being able to summon assists at any time, with a cooldown that varies based on how powerful the assist is), but others that might not be as well-received (such as the lack of emphasis on recovery, or the rock-paper-scissors system where some characters have advantages against others).Thinking of Retooling the gameplay a bit. It being the exact same as Smash is a bit boring. Maybe something like the aforementioned jump ultimate stars?
