This set of five short videos will provide backstory on how Lilith became the Mother of Demons, and how Super Heroes like Blade, Magik, Ghost Rider, and Nico Minoru came together to form the young core of the Midnight Suns.

"Marvel's Midnight Suns Prequel Shorts shed light on the events leading up to the game and really brings the world of Marvel's Midnight Suns to life."
