Perhaps no mutant is as well-known as Wolverine from the X-Men. He would later appear in his own title Insomniac Games.

Her outfit consists of runes etched into the gold of her costume.

8 ghost rider
A few characters have taken up the torch of Ghost Rider, from Johnny Blaze to Danny Ketch to Robbie Reyes. The revelation of Marvel’s Midnight Suns Robbie Reyes has all but confirmed as this game’s Ghost Rider.
Ghost Rider plays a vital role in the formation of the Midnight Sons in the comics, as he is the one who has a vision of the antagonist Lilith, resurrecting and wreaking havoc. It will be interesting to see what legacy is honored in Marvel’s Midnight Suns video game.
This Marvel character is a fan favorite for all things supernatural, so it’s no surprise that Blade is involved in stopping the demons from hell from spawning.
Michael Jai White has been confirmed as the voice of Blade for Marvel’s Midnight Suns. On one occasion in the comics, the Midnight Sons were forced to battle their member, Blade, after being transformed and corrupted into a Switchblade by the Darkhold.

Another member joins the cast of Marvel’s Midnight Suns is none other than the Sorcerer Supreme himself, Doctor Strange (not to be confused with the MCU’s Sorcerer Supreme, Wong).

The First Avenger, Captain America has a part to play in Marvel’s Midnight Suns, but it’s unclear if his role is story-related or just to fill out the roster of iconic Marvel heroes. That’s because Captain America isn’t part of the original comics team.
Of all the Avengers on the team’s roster, only Doctor Strange is among the original Midnight Sons. This leaves Captain America and his shield in some rather uncharted occult territory.
