There is a point in the SNES game Marvel Super Heroes In War of the Gems where you arrive at a volcano, and the only way to proceed forward is to fly over the magma field.
At that point in the game, some kind of red coated magician appears, levitating above the magma. Then he uses his power to create a flying platform for us to stand on, after which he simply teleports away.
This is the only time we see that character in the entire game, and he does not say a single word, he simply spawns a platform to help us.
Who is he?
