Where are Marvel Future Fight X-Men characters?

By Alan Ng - May 13, 2015

If there was one complaint to make about the excellent new Marvel game Future Fight, it is the glaring omission of characters from the X-Men group.

Unfortunately, as we see in many other games and of course in movies, Fox owns the rights to X-Men characters such as Wolverine, Magneto and Deadpool.

Wolverine and Deadpool are two of the biggest requests for Marvel Future Fight, but for the time being it looks like there are no plans to add them to the Marvel Future Fight character list.


That is of course, unless Netmarble can come to some sort of agreement with Fox over the usage of these characters. After all, another popular Marvel game Avengers Alliance on Facebook and Mobile includes almost every X-Men under the sun – so there’s that to think about.

Hopefully it’s just a case of timing. The game has just launched after all and the launch roster so far is very impressive – nobody is going to be complaining about not having enough characters to choose from straight away.

Do you agree that there needs to be a Marvel Future Fight X-Men hero list sooner rather than later? If you are a fan of the X-Men, tell us which hero you would like to see next.

    Obama a fan of the x-men and truth is the game is becoming very boring without them. I have the game uninstalled and just now installed it again just hoping that the x-men would be part of the next update. My favorite x-men are Storm, Gambit, Archangel, Iceman, Rogue, Psylocke, Cyclops, Nightcrawler, Colossus, Magneto, Juggernaut as well as the Fantastic Four and Silver Surfer. All the irritable updates I endure does not make up for the absence of the x-men. The movie is out and I hope the new update will involve the x-men with Storm, Cyclops, Phoenix Wolvie and Magneto as daily login awards.

    Where are mojo,and Mr sinister?and also vengeance.cable?I’m sure they aren’t owned by fox.

  • Manhattan30

    Yes dr strange although he isn’t a x-men character I would like to see storm, wolverine, gambit, rouge, deadpool, jean, cyclops, emma frost, nightcrawler, professor x, mystique, magneto, and iceman

  • Houston72

    We’ll probably get Dr. Strange when the movie comes out, same as the Ant Man characters. Hopefully X-Men when Apocalypse comes out. Just give me a Sentinel with those X-Men! Of course we need Carnage, FF4, Deadpool, & call me old school but they should’ve released the original Legion of Monsters. We already had Ghost Rider, just needed Man-Thing, Morbius, & Werewolf by Night.

  • Kylie

    Get used to it. Inhumans are replacing X-men. Lincoln,Skye, Lash and Black Bolt (all Inhumans) made it to the game before any X-men did. Inhumans are Marvels new mutants.

  • Venus Marie Gabriel

    White Queen
    Hope Summers
    Northstar and Aurora
    Mirage and Magma

    • Dale Earnheart

      Silver surfer,human torch

  • Joseph Stephens

    Jean Grey
    Emma Frost

  • Jarron Phipps

    I love all the X-Men but my main concern is Storm and maybe even Jean/Phoenix!!!!

  • neetesh gupta


  • Warren Character

    Wolverine and Deadpool

  • Jake

    Mystique, Gambit, Angel, Havok


    Jean Grey esp since Sophie Turner is playing her in the upcoming Apoc movie

  • ranyep

    A good idea would be to add the original 5 x-men (Cyclops, Jean, Iceman, Angel and Beast) then release the most amazing girls from x-men as Rogue, Emma Frost, Psylocke, Kitty Pride and tons of them. I couldn’t finish to list all of my favs characters from x-men

  • Bla

    Wolverine and magneto are Must haves

  • Spiderman

    Future fight added spiderman characters(which are owend by fox), then why would they not add x-men or fantastic 4. It just takes time.
    (Plus x-men was added to marvel contest of champions)

    • Niko

      dude, spiderman is owned by sony not fox

      • Talon

        Not anymore. MARVEL has him back

  • Larry D Wilmore

    I would love to Storm, Gambit, Rogue, Psylocke, Iceman, Nightcrawler, Kitty Pryde, Emma Frost, Phoenix and Cyclops on the list. Im sure Wolvie will be but I really dont care for him. As for the villians I would choose Magneto/Joseph (alternate costume), Juggernaut, Scarlet Witch, Mystique, Onslaught, Apocalypse, QuickSilver (would interesting), Sentenial and Sabretooth.

  • Niko Say

    Adding Deadpool, Xmen (with villains) and Fantastic Four into MFF would be fun, however it would also require the game to have a new UI as there are too many heroes (which is good) in the game, it has come to a point where it’s hard to select one hero to another from end to end. I think it would also be awesome to have game cinematics for hero combos

  • Brad Carter

    Wolverine, cyclops, Jean grey, and storm would be plenty for the xmen. All 4 of the fantastic 4 and Deadpool would put this game to levels never seen before in mobile gaming

  • Brad Carter

    Xmen and ff need to be on this terrific game. These companies need to stop the games and reach a deal. It is the marvel universe after all and someone like wolverine is as big a part of the avengers as he is xmen to be honest.

  • Bill Antonopoulos

    I want to put some characters: sandman, deadpool, magneto,human torch,iceman and all x -men characters. It will be awesome.

  • Syahir Sam

    I want ‘Wolverine’.
    The most…………

    • Robert Wilson

      i want wolverine more than you .

  • Michael Warren

    Okay so if the x-men are missing as well as the fantastic four because of licencing that’s fine. What does that mean for the rest of the Inhumans aside from Blackbolt? There’s also a ton of Spider-man characters to choose from such as Silk, Spider Gwen, Electro, and Rhino. Hell where are quick-silver and Scarlet Witch they were in the last avengers movie too. What about Dr. Strange? Without the x-men it does feel a little empty but there are still substitutes. Of all the x-men that are missing I’d love to have Magic (Illyana Rasputin) in the game for sure.

  • Kufucius

    Would love to see them release the characters from the Gardians of Galaxy too 🙂

  • Leo

    I’d like to see cyclops. The reason is, he has been and always an x-man. But we need to see more characters from x-men. The tittle does not look or sound right without them.

  • Geralt of Rivia

    The game isn’t completed without X-Men….. Of all Marvel characters, why them…. I really want all of the X-Men included, but if i have to choose only one, that would definitely be Wolverine!!

  • blavained

    I don’t meant to be negative but if you’re going to write an article you need to do your homework – Marvel still owns the licensing rights to toys, video games, comics, etc. (hence why X-Men have been included in every app up to date such as Contest of Champions).

    They DON’T own the movie rights (Fox does) – and now that big budget movies rule the game, Marvel is going to continuously push Avengers into the spotlight while driving down FF and X-men to prevent cross promotion that would benefit Fox.

  • Boose

    Haven’t played or even heard of this game, but Yes the X-Men should and need to be included. The way I see it if it’s a Marvel Comics game the X-Men Must be included.

    As for which X-Men I’d want to see in the game… it’s very hard to just choose one. I want them all, if not all then at least the originals… Cyclops, Iceman, Beast, Jean Grey/Marvel Girl/Phoenix, Angel/Archangel, Wolverine, Magneto, Psylocke, Apocalypse, Havok, Mystique, Nightcrawler, Rogue, Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver, Fantomex, The Apocalypse Twins (Uriel and Eimin), Omega Red, Mr. Sinister, Onslaught… okay okay I think I’ll stop.

    • James Owen

      Colossus ftw!

      • Boose

        I can’t believe I forgot to list Colossus, then again I didn’t list a lot of other mutants. But still… *facepalm*

        • Niko Say

          Dude, Gambit

    • NgTurbo

      Nightcrawler would be awesome!

    • NgTurbo

      Nightcrawler would be awesome!
