“Many fans of the Marvel Universe and comics share their interests and passion for storytelling with the gaming community,” said C.B.

We’re excited to partner with Riot and help build the League of Legends Universe for fans and players around the world.”

“We love comics as a way to tell stories because it gives League of Legends fans an opportunity to see the world of Runeterra and not just read about it,” said Greg Street, Head of Creative Development at Riot Games. “We see similarities between the League of Legends Universe and the Marvel Universe, as both of them feature an array of characters with compelling and diverse backgrounds.
