If you could be any member of Earth’s mightiest heroes who would you want to be? Would you like to be big and strong like the Hulk, or have mystical powers like Doctor Strange? Well, since no human can survive a massive dose of gamma rays or perform real magic, none of us will ever know exactly how it feels to be Bruce Banner or Stephen Strange. But just like Iron Man and Black Panther, we do have something that can allow us to at least pretend to be in their shoes—technology. Like with the new virtual reality experience Avengers: Damage Control, a game that lets you fight alongside the Avengers as a recruit wearing a suit that combines both Tony Stark and Wakandan tech. And as the first story trailer for the game reveals, they’ll need your help dealing with the return of one of their most dangerous enemies, a foe thought defeated forever, Ultron.
“Shuri has recruited your team to test a powerful new prototype design combining Wakandan and Stark technologies. When an enemy from the past seeks to steal the technology, you’ll fight alongside some of your favorite Avengers like Doctor Strange, Wasp, Ant-Man and more to stop the attack before they unleash an oppressive new age upon the world.”
Avengers: Damage Control is a new VR game from Marvel Studios and ILMxLAB. They teamed up with THE VOID, “a whole-body, fully immersive experience, with you, your friends and family physically inside the action.” The untethered game will let you stand and fight with some of the franchise’s best known heroes, including Spider-Man, Falcon, and others who also make an appearance in this trailer.

Until someone actually develops Stark and Wakandan technology, it’s the closest we’ll come to being an Avenger. Trust us, a gamma ray overdose is not going to turn anyone into a giant green rage monster.
