Royal Welcome: Black Bolt & Yo-Yo
December 20, 2019

Greetings Commanders,

We're sending 2019 off with a sonic scream this week as we introduce two Inhuman team members, teasing new milestones, and posting a roadmap of Blitzes and other events that'll escort you to the new year. Now, make way for the King of Attilan!



Black Bolt

Leading the way for the new Inhuman team is their Legendary Blaster, Black Bolt. Blackagar Boltagaon -- a.k.a "Black Bolt" -- is the King of the Inhumans and can harness the power of free-floating electrons in the form of his sonic voice. Black Bolt can level mountains with a whisper and erase entire planets with a scream -- and this royal scream is a game-changer in MARVEL Strike Force.

On top of clearing enemy positive effects and applying Disrupt to summons, Black Bolt blocks Revive on enemies he's eliminated. Bow down to Black Bolt's royal kit:


Traits: Hero, Cosmic, Bio, Blaster, Inhuman


Basic - Royal Strike

  • If the primary target has Slow, flip 2 negative effects on self
  • Attack the primary target and clear 2 positive effects

Special - Staggering Voice

  • Energy Cost: 4/4
  • Attack primary target for damage
  • This attack is unavoidable

Ultimate - Sonic Scream

  • Energy Cost: 3/6
  • Attack primary target for damage

Passive - King of Attilan

  • Characters killed by Black Bolt cannot be revived
  • When an enemy drops below 25% Health, attack that enemy for damage. If that enemy is VILLAIN TECH, attack that enemy for more damage
  • On enemy summon, apply Disrupted and clear 3 positive effects on the summoner
  • Gain Resistance. Inhuman allies gain Resistance
  • Gain 50% Max Health. 

Yo-Yo


Slingshotting into battle after Black Bolt is Yo-Yo, the Inhuman's lightning-fast Protector. Yo-Yo can travel at superhuman speeds for the length of a single heartbeat, before snapping back to her original starting place. Instead of being a big, bulky Protector, Yo-Yo uses her speed to defend her Inhuman (or S.H.I.E.L.D.) teammates. Although she doesn't have a Taunt, Yo-Yo protects allies by granting them Evade and Defense Up, applying Offense Down to enemies each turn, and granting Ability Energy with her Ultimate attack.

Snap back enemy attacks with Yo-Yo:


Traits: Hero, Global, Bio, Protector, S.H.I.E.L.D., Inhuman

  • Basic - Rapid Strikes
  • Attack primary target for damage and clear Counter
  • Gain Assist from a random Inhuman ally
  • This attack cannot be counterattacked
  • Special - Flurry
  • Energy Cost: 5/5
  • Attack the primary target for damage and Bonus attack 2 times for damage
  • Repeat this action on 3 additional random targets
  • This attack cannot be counterattacked
  • Ultimate - Run the Gauntlet
  • Energy Cost: 4/4
  • Attack all enemies for damage
  • Grant 1 Ability Energy to all Inhuman allies
  • Passive - Swift Protector
  • On enemy turn, if this character has no other Protector allies, apply Offense Down. This cannot be dodged
  • On ally non-Minion S.H.I.E.L.D. or Inhuman turn, chance to apply Evade to that ally
  • On Spawn, apply Defense Up to all non-Minion S.H.I.E.L.D. and Inhuman allies
  • Gain Dodge chance
  • Gain Focus per non-Minion S.H.I.E.L.D. and Inhuman ally
