Hi

In Dominion, the role of the player is monarch.
In Legendary, the role of the players So what?
I believe that it is the executive of the S.H.I.E.L.D.
What do you think?

Legendary I'm thinking more like Agent Coleson than Nick Fury. And of course Nick Fury is one of the heroes in the game.

I believe that the game is more like a story in a graphic novel which unfolds before us and the players are like directors of the action, participants in the outworking of the events but not necessarily tied to any one hero or hero group.

The story always begins with S.H.I.E.L.D. finding out about some kind of threat after which it begins recruiting heroes to assemble a team to address that threat. By the end of the game we have a complete story with a lot of detail and action. Sometimes, if we use our imagination, we can read between the lines of the game and envision a full story complete with plot twists, action sequences, suspense and drama. It's really a testament to the brilliance of the game designers and developers that we get to enjoy such a rich and rewarding game experience each time we play it.

I'd say the player's role is "the person playing the game".

Players take turns being the storyteller of one page in a comic book: You are Stan Lee.
