Luck smiles upon your roster this week with the introduction of a Mutant Mercenary who laughs at the odds and then blows them away. But your good fortune doesn’t stop there; we also have a Facebook poll that’ll make Dad proud, a returning Legendary character, and events sponsored by Wakanda. But first, break out your tux, ballgown, or fancy pajamas, because it’s time to walk down the red carpet...

Lady Luck herself has joined S.T.R.I.K.E in the form of the ever-deadly Domino. Domino is a mutant gifted with the ability to psionically and subconsciously alter probability in her favor, making it appear as though she’s extremely lucky. Combined with her elite fighting skills, Domino enters fights with the deck stacked heavily in her favor.
As a Controller for X-Force, Domino gains X-Force ally assists with each Basic attack and has a high chance to apply Evade to X-Force allies on their turn. When Deadpool is an ally, she revives Deadpool 100% of the time via his Passive ability (Merc with a Mouth), and makes his chain attack (Hack n’ Slash) unavoidable. On Alliance War Offense, she applies Offense Up to allies and reduces the enemy’s Speed Bar. And when Domino teams up with Deadpool, Cable, and the two upcoming X-Force members, X-Force can slay the gods of Alliance War.

One of your first chances to recruit Domino will be in her upcoming Event Campaign, Serendipity. Journey to Mister Sinister’s locked-down dimension and help Domino as she uses her lucky instincts to beat the odds and secure life-saving supplies for a desperate S.T.R.I.K.E. team. You’ll need a team with the limited-time “Lucky” trait for this mission. For the complete list of characters with this trait, filter your roster using “Lucky.”
Campaign Mission Additions
Add fire, brimstone, and Vibranium to your roster with these characters heading to Campaign missions. First up, Ghost Rider will be replacing Black Panther in Cosmic 3-9, so head there to scoop up shards for the Supernatural team’s Brawler. Next, Black Panther is heading over to Nexus 4-9, where he’ll replace Jessica Jones (you can still find her shards in Villains 2-9).
Social Poll Vote
We’re honoring all the dads out there this month with a special Blitz, and you get to decide which father figure we’re featuring. Visit MARVEL Strike Force on Facebook and cast your vote for:

Harness the power of Phoenix and Dark Phoenix in the blazing return of the Phoenix Rising Legendary Event.

Swooping and charging into Blitz this week are two characters that pack a punch on their respective teams. First up is a special I’m the Juggernaut Blitz featuring the Brotherhood Protector, Juggernaut. In this iteration, we’ll have a new limited-time event reward structure featuring Red Stars and character shards for Juggernaut (level 42 required for Red Stars). After racking up Red Stars with Juggernaut, take your Power Armor team to new heights with Falcon character shards in the EXO-7 Blitz.
Prepare your Wakandans for Chaos Theory with the upcoming Wakanda Nation event. During the event, the following Campaign nodes will reward double character shards for Wakandans:
Black Panther: Nexus 4-9
Okoye: Nexus 6-3
You can earn Silver and Gold Promotion Credits in the Chaos Theory event, so use this chance to rank up your Wakandans.
Until next time…
Good luck, Commander!
