The Dark Hunters

A monster new team is rising from the darkness and heading toward the battlefield soon: The Dark Hunters. This team combines two menacing new faces – Morbius and Doctor Voodoo – with S.T.R.I.K.E. veterans Ghost Rider and Elsa Bloodstone, who received some updates. The team's primary mission will be to take down formidable War Defense teams, including the resilient Heroes for Hire. There isn’t a dedicated fifth Dark Hunter (yet), but a strong option to slot in will be Mordo, who also got ability and stat upgrades in the Version 5.10 release. Now, let's meet the two new members of the team…


Doctor Voodoo

Jericho Drumm was born in Haiti and left for the United States as a young man to study psychology. After studying and working for 12 years, he returned home to find his brother, a local Houngan (Haitian voodoo priest), dying after a battle with a rival. Jericho honored his brother's dying wish to study voodoo under his brother's teacher and reached a proficiency even greater than his brother's after only a few weeks. After having his brother's spirit bound to his own, Jericho defeated his brother's rival. Through continued study, Jericho became a master of voodoo magic and his powers include a vast array of spell casting, animal manipulation, astral projection, elemental manipulation, energy control, necromancy, and much more. His power has grown so great that he eventually assumed the Sorcerer Supreme title from Doctor Strange and has since gone by the title of Doctor Voodoo.


Doctor Voodoo is a Support for the Dark Hunters and his high Health and Resistance stats give him great survivability in battle. His role on the team is to not only sustain his Dark Hunters allies, but to also help break down characters who rely on Deathproof. He's not only one of the few characters who can ignore Deathproof, but his Basic Ability, Staff Blast, can steal Deathproof! Most of his abilities specifically sustain the Dark Hunters, so it’s advisable to pair him with that team in battle.

Morbius

Michael Morbius was born with a blood disease that caused his blood cells to die and weaken his immune system. The condition worsened as he got older, spurring Morbius to study science in college in order to discover a cure for his condition. His research won him a Nobel Prize, but during an experiment to cure himself using vampire bats and electric shock treatment, Morbius transformed into a monster! He was endowed with the powers and bloodlust of a vampire, including increased strength, hypnotic abilities, and a healing factor. However, Morbius is still a mortal man and doesn't have the same vampire weaknesses towards the sun, garlic, and religious artifacts. This hybrid nature caused Morbius to kill in the name of his thirst for blood while being filled with regret and self-loathing for his actions. Morbius's hunger has caused him to tangle with some of the City's mightiest heroes, including Spider-Man and the Thing, but Morbius has also assisted heroes like Blade, Elsa Bloodstone, and Ghost Rider.

Tadano Mac JAPAN Celebration

The party to celebrate Tadano Mac JAPAN’s victory as the two-time Dark Dimension First Finisher Challenge winner will kick off shortly, with the opening ceremony on Facebook. Keep your eyes on the official Marvel Strike Force Facebook page for the start of the Global, City, and Cosmic Polls where the Community will vote between one of two characters Tadano Mac JAPAN used to be featured in future Blitzes.


Following a couple of weeks after the polls (late February) will be the official Celebration Login Calendar. This 10-day calendar will give currency for an orb that'll drop 10 character shards at a time for 100 shards total of Cloak and/or Dagger. But the celebration's shard bonanza doesn't stop there because we'll also be scheduling Bonus Events for Captain America (Sam) and Polaris in the near future as well. The celebration caps off with the arrival of our Version 6.0 release (late March), which will showcase Tadano Mac JAPAN's second enshrinement within the MARVEL Strike Force in-game environment. Where do you think it will show up?


The fun begins soon, so be on the lookout!
