The latest character DLC for Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2 adds the Runaways. The character and level pack adds the characters and a new level from Brian K. Vaughn’s beloved young adult Marvel series. It’s available now for $2.99, or as part of the Season Pass ($14.99).

The Runaways Character and Level Pack adds seven new playable characters from the comic series: Nico, Chase, Alex, Karolina, Molly, Gertrude and her pet Velociraptor Old Lace. The Runaways are a group of burgeoning super-powered teens who find out their parents have formed an evil cult called The Pride. It’s a fantastic series that was recently adapted into a TV series on Hulu.

The new level represents the climactic finale and showdown of the original series, at the undersea Marine Vivarium.

The Season Pass includes all past and future DLC. Thus far it includes three character and level packs: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Black Panther, and Cloak & Dagger, as well as three smaller character packs: Champions, Out of Time, Agents of Atlas.

Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2 launched last fall as the long awaited sequel to 2013 Lego Marvel Super Heroes. It features an all-new story that pits a huge roster of Marvel heroes against the time-traveling shenanigans of Kang the Conqueror. It’s a great LEGO game, though sadly, like the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it’s completely devoid of X-Men.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 is rated E for Everyone. It’s available for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Switch.
