The Brotherhood's new additions take the spotlight this week with the introduction of an amorphous new member. Balancing out the Brotherhood's villainy are heroic Blitzes, a party in the City, and an intergalactic Legendary Event. Now, keep your arms and legs inside the blog at all times, because you don't want to get absorbed into the gelatinous first section…
Lumbering into the final open slot for the Brotherhood team is Blob. Frederick J. Dukes -- a.k.a. "Blob" -- is a Mutant with abilities that give him superhuman durability, strength, and pain immunity. Along with being able to trap and expel objects with his body mass, Blob can control the gravity around his immediate area, making himself virtually immovable, even for the strongest heroes. As a member of the Brotherhood of Mutants, Blob is a Protector who applies Slow, crushes foes with Area of Effect attacks, and Taunts when allies drop to low Health.

Next Legendary Event
The Star-Lord Legendary Event, "Space Ace," is on its way back to Earth, so put the finishing touches on your Guardians and Ravagers for a chance to add their fearless dancing leader to their ranks.
If you're pro-Pym Particles or a Super-Soldier Serum snob, we've got Blitzes for you this week. Duke it out in the name of character shards for Wasp and Captain America to Recruit and Rank Up two iconic Marvel heroes.
Speaking of Pym Particles, don't miss the upcoming Shard Swarm! Part of our "Into the Microverse" leap year event, Shard Swarm features 2x character shard rewards for Ant-Man in the Blitz Supplies Store and Wasp in Villains 4-9. This is the first time we've doubled shards rewarded from the Store, so don't miss this very special event!
