That optimism is what drives both Club Penguin and the Marvel story lines and characters. Club Penguin and Marvel characters are the perfect match, and I’m sure our players will love it!”

Reactions from the fans are already tremendous, and we’re thrilled that we’re able to bring Marvel and Club Penguin together for such an epic event.”
