Gazillion is about to celebrate the two-year anniversary of their free-to-play MMORPG, Marvel Heroes 2015. The studio has started outlining plans for the game's anniversary update, headlined by the mighty monarch of Latveria, Doctor Doom, debuting as the game's 48th playable character.

The anniversary update will include some new features, including whole new gifting options for the glut of items sitting in your inventory, a re-designed Team-Up system dubbed "Team-Up 2.0," and a design review for the ever-loving blue-eyed Thing. Gazillion will reveal more information on these updates with a special anniversary stream, set to take place tomorrow morning at 11AM PT on Twitch. Players will also be able to take all 47 of the game's other characters out for a free spin up to level 10.

As for Doom, what else is there to say about one of Marvel's baddest villains? His dialogue includes gems like "Doom does not fear dinosaurs! He demolishes them!" Check out the video below for more Doom-isms and prepare to meet your Doom in tomorrow's Marvel Heroes 2015 anniversary update.

And because there's so much to love about Doom, Shacknews is giving away five codes for the Fantastic Four nemesis.

        have you seen his uniques? some of the stats are ridiculous. also the name of his slot 5! he carries around a portrait of himself?! all because they used helm of doom and hand of doom already.

      I am about 6 characters deep, working on Ghost Rider right now and I have to say, he has been my favorite to work with so far. Tough, can get in a fight and hold his ground. Probably the first character I will prestige unless that Dr. Doom shows up somehow!

      Jean Grey. I played her a lot before her review and after her review had given up on her.

      I like Cyclops. He's one of those characters who tries his best to be a leader and to keep himself together. I like his optic blast moves as well his strike team powers. I think he's very close to aoe king once you gear him right. His 'gotta keep pushing myself' saying is something that I try to tell myself everyday too.

      I've been playing Hawkeye since the abysmal beta and have seen the game flourish in all aspects. Glad to see it hit the 2 year mark. Oh, and my current favorite is a tie between Deadpool and Wolverine. Both have fantastic skillsets that are fun to play.

          You have to. He is a really fun character. He is one of the more complex characters as well. The only thing I don't like about DR Strange is he simply hasn't got the costume love that other characters have gotten. So unless you love his Default costume or his No Fear outfit, you might be a bit disappointed.

      Looking forward to playing tomorrow and seeing what is coming. A great way to start would be to win Doom!

      Obviously my favorite character is deadpool (>''.')> Doom would be super cool to win though since I have the Doom Teamup and I bet the hero has good banter with the teamup

      Squirrel Girl is just as OP as she should be. She's a lot of fun to play as.

      My favorite character is Magneto. His voice acting seals the deal for me.

      He sounds so rabid.

      Rogue is such fun, because of the different powers you can steam from other characters. And as new ones come out, you constantly get new things to try out with her :D

      I've been playing Colossus since I started playing Marvel Heroes. It's been a fun ride but its been really hard to get into raids b/c Colossus is known to be a tank, even though I built him as a DPS.

      I adore the Hulk. Even before his review. Now he is so much more fun to play. Rage replacing energy was the best thing they could of done for him. That and the car gloves.
