The Hidden Assassin
April 10, 2020

Greetings Commanders,

Thanos gains access to another Infinity Stone this week with the introduction of his next Black Order general. We also have a gifted Bonus Event, otherworldly Blitzes, and friendly-neighborhood milestones swinging back your way. Get your tribute to Thanos ready because Corvus Glaive is here to collect.

Corvus Glaive

None shall hide from the will of Thanos, and the newest member of the Black Order, Corvus Glaive, has arrived to conquer enemies in his name. Corvus Glaive is one of Thanos’s deadly generals and the husband of Proxima Midnight. In addition to being a master tactician and possessing superhuman abilities, he wields a glaive in battle capable of slicing through atoms and inflicting wounds upon the most durable fighters.

As a member of the Black Order team, Corvus Glaive is an elusive Brawler who gains Assists from an allied Proxima Midnight on his Basic attacks, gains Stealth when he or an enemy hits low Health, ignores Taunt and Stealth on his Special attack, and grants Thanos the Mind Stone, which gives Thanos Offense Up for two turns.
