A new membership is coming Marvel: crisis protocol, but it’s not necessarily the one players expected. Earlier today, Atomic Mass Games announced two new character packs for their Marvel: Crisis Protocol game, which will officially add the Winter Guard as a new affiliation. The new character packs will include Crimson Dynamo and Darkstar in one pack and Red Guardian and Ursa Major in the other. No other information was provided on the character packs, other than that Crimson Dynamo will be the leader of the affiliation. You can catch a first look at the new characters below:

In the comics, the Winter Guard served as the Russian equivalent of the Avengers and acted as both allies and adversaries of various Marvel heroes depending on the storyline. The Red Guardian was presented in the 2021 Black Widow film as Black Widow’s former trainer/father figure.
While we’ll have to wait for the official release of Winter Guard to see what other characters will be included in the affiliation, it stands to reason that Black Widow and Omega Red (both of which exist Marvel: Crisis Protocol characters) will also be included in the affiliation.
This is the second new affiliation announced for Marvel: Crisis Protocol those last weeks. Earlier this month, Atomic Mass Games announced that Hydra would be joining the game, featuring several classic Captain America villains like Baron Von Strucker and Armin Zola, as well as an all-new Red Skull figure.
The Winter Guard figures will be released for Marvel Crisis Protocol during the third quarter of 2023.
