Enter the Black Order
March 27, 2020

Greetings Commanders,

Thanos's Black Order is preparing for battle! This week we're meeting one of the dark generals preluding their master's reign. During our second anniversary celebration, we also have two Blitzes and a slew of 2x events to speed up your progress. 

Proxima Midnight

One of Thanos's loyal generals, Proxima Midnight is a member of the Black Order, a group of deadly fighters who aid Thanos in his quest to conquer life throughout the universe. She's a master combatant with superhuman abilities and wields a spear forged by Thanos that contains the power of an active star. Proxima is also the wife of Black Order member, Corvus Glaive, and her abilities feature some unique synergies with him.

Proxima Midnight is a Controller who gains Assists from Corvus Glaive on Basic attacks and hinders enemies with Stun, Slow, and reducing enemy Speed Bar.  All four members of the Black Order grant Infinity Stones to Thanos's gauntlet at the start of his first turn, of which Proxima grants him the Space Stone! When he has all of the Infinity Stones -- requiring all 4 Black Order members -- Thanos becomes "Empowered," which unlocks a new set of mighty abilities. We'll have more information on the rest of the Black Order and Thanos “Empowered” in future blogs, so be on the lookout.

Slay enemies in the name of Thanos with Proxima Midnight:

Anniversary Bonus Events

Raise up your roster and celebrate two years of MARVEL Strike Force this week with these 2x events:

Energy Overload - 2x Campaign Energy refreshes

Raining Gold: - 2x Gold rewards from Campaign nodes

Seeing Double - 2x shard rewards in Campaign nodes for all characters released during our second year

First-Wednesday Character

As previously mentioned, on the first Wednesday of each month, a character that was previously released in a limited capacity will have their character shards made more readily available. April’s character is (drum roll please)... Stryfe, who will have a new home in the Blitz Store! Recruit and rank up the Marauders' telekinetic tank and clone victory in battle.

Upcoming Blitzes

Recruit and rank up two heavy hitters this week in Blitz. First up, Red Skull returns for his Blitz encore in the Hail Hydra Blitz, which will grant his character shards at all tiers of Ranking Rewards. 

Up next is Gamora, the sword-wielding Brawler for the Guardians of the Galaxy. Both of these Blitzs, along with this week’s Orb Assault and Red Star Rampage, will reward Anniversary Credits with every Blitz win, which you can cash in during the Second Strike milestone.

Calling All Agents

For a limited-time, earn 2x character shards for S.H.I.E.L.D.members in their respective Campaign nodes -- including the newly added Black Widow in Heroes 7-3. Don't miss your shot at building out your Fury S.H.I.E.L.D. team for battle and fortifying them for the Iron Man Legendary Event.

Kree for All

Prepare for the coming of Nick Fury's Legendary Event with 2x Kree minion character shard rewards in Kree Campaign nodes.

Alpha Raid Orb Updated

We recently added the following characters to the rewards for the Alpha Raid Orb:

  • Graviton

  • Namor

  • Stryfe

Until next time…

Good luck, Commanders!
