Marvel Cosmic seems to be on the up and up – at least when it comes to gaming – as now the Nova Corps and Darkhawk get Disney Infinity 3.0 Marvel Discs.
Marvel Editor Bill Rosemann, who edited the DnA Marvel Cosmic line of comics which included Darkhawk, tweeted out the news.

The Power Discs are used with the Play Set base to unlock items and customization.
DisKingdom spotted the following info and images at Walmart.

• Darkhawk’s Blast – Blast obstacles with a powerful energy beam from your chest.
• Nova Corps Strike – Call upon the Nova Corps and unleash a tactical strike from above.
• Ghost Rider’s Motorcycle – Take a ride on the wild side with Ghost Rider’s flaming motorcycle.
As fans of DnA Marvel Cosmic know, Darkhawk was featured prominently with his own mini-series during War of Kings which introduced Talon and the Raptors.
In an interview with Marvel.com, Rosemann also said he hopes to see more from Darkhawk as well as Richard Rider Nova and again mentions Quasar.
Marvel.com: Very cool. If you could add one classic costume to the game that doesn’t exist now, what would you add?
Bill Rosemann: I have to go with my man, Rich Rider Nova!
Marvel.com: Oh, there it is!
Bill Rosemann: And in publishing, with all the great cosmic books they have going, it would be awesome to see Darkhawk rise again.
Marvel.com: Oh, you are always all about that Darkhawk.
Bill Rosemann: I love his look, how he scratches that itch of “young Earth person in space”, a great point-of-view character, and visually a nice counter balance to all the bright cosmic characters.
Marvel.com: So we need a Rich Rider Nova and Darkhawk in “Marvel Future Fight.”
Bill Rosemann: It’s time to for them to fly again!
Marvel.com: There you go! What more could you want?
Bill Rosemann: Well, you might want additional characters from the comic books, and by golly they’re in there!
Marvel.com: That’s true, we’ve been rolling out a deep list on Marvel.com…
Bill Rosemann: Yes! Firebird and Ares and Quasar…and I hope this delivers on the promise that we made to the Quasar fan club years ago when they sent a 10 pound cake to the offices asking for the return of Quasar.
Quasar is also featured in the LEGO Marvel Avengers video game and has his first Hasbro action figure coming out this Summer.
