Another hero highlighted
One thing that's nice about Marvel's Midnight Suns is it isn't relying solely on the most established superheroes in its catalogue. The likes of Iron Man, Spider-Man, and Captain America are in the mix, for sure, but we're somewhat more interested in the lesser known characters. One such example is Nico, who's the focus of...
