The time has come: the Black Order’s Legendary black-tongued general has arrived to give his master the final three Infinity Stones. We’ve also got the lowdown on the newest Legendary Event, a Milestone Event for all you Power Core lovers out there, an Elsa Bloodstone sighting, and more! For now, just sit back and relax while Ebony Maw whispers sinister nothings…
Plant the seed of destruction with Ebony Maw, the Black Order’s Legendary member! Thanos’s second-in-command, Ebony Maw is a dangerous telepath capable of controlling the minds of all who stand in his way. He’s also a master tactician, possibly equaling Thanos himself.
As a member of the Black Order team, Ebony Maw is their Support specialist. At the start of a battle, he grants Thanos three Infinity Stones (Reality Stone, Time Stone, and Soul Stone), as well as Regeneration, Deathproof, and Immunity. During battle, Ebony Maw applies Immunity and Barrier, steals enemy Health and redistributes it to his allies, in addition to applying Ability Block to all Hero Controller enemies.
