Available now until December 31, 2009 Magneto, Black Panther, Carnage, Psylocke, and Cable can be bought to play along side the others in Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2
for 800 MS points or $9.99. Not only that but you get four new missions and other goodies that come with the DLC. Interesting that it would only be available until December 31 but I'll try to get some confirmation as to if this just a timed DLC that will be gone after the end of the year.
-Update: Yes, I confirmed that this DLC will only be available until the end of the year so if you are thinking about picking it up, don't dilly dally.
