Marvel Super Heroes assemble on Disney’s Club Penguin

Published on: 11th June 2012

Kids’ virtual world Club Penguin Island will be having an online event, starting June 14th through to July 3rd, called the Marvel Super Hero Takeover.

Lane Merrifield, co-founder of Club Penguin and executive vice president of Disney Online Studios, said: “Everyone wants to feel special and believe that they can do something that no one else can do. 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!”

Rob Steffens, executive vice president of Marvel Entertainment, added: “Bringing our worlds together marks a major milestone for both Marvel and Club Penguin. 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.”

As part of The Marvel Super Hero Takeover event, players can:

  • Choose to dress up as Marvel Super Heroes, Super-Villains or civilians
  • Explore the island, which has been transformed to include new destinations such as a bank, jail, and a superhero headquarters
  • Join teams to decide whether to defend or defeat the evil Destructobot
  • Meet Aunt Arctic, the news reporter and editor-in-chief for the Penguin Times, the Club Penguin Island newspaper.
