Weekly Blog: The Masters of Evil
January 19, 2023

Greetings Commanders,


Masters of Evil

They say it takes over 10,000 hours of practice to master a skill. Today, we're meeting three individuals who, along with their teammates, have mastered the art of being a big bad. Laughing maniacally and preparing for a reign of terror are the Masters of Evil. This team will consist of the Dark Dimension terror Ultron and newcomers Titania, Absorbing Man, Moonstone, and Kang the Conqueror. They'll be putting aside their world domination aspirations in favor of dominating Cosmic Crucible. 


The Masters of Evil will also be a required trait for a future Legendary character event, so be on the lookout for more information on this in the future.


Titania will be dropping into battle soon, so today, we'll be covering the other three Masters of Evil.


Absorbing Man

Carl Creel was a violent boxer turned criminal when he landed in jail after being convicted of assault. While serving his prison sentence, Creel was selected by Loki, the Asgardian God of Mischief, as his unwitting pawn in a plot against Thor. Loki secretly spiked Creel's drinking water with a potion composed of rare Asgardian herbs. This elixir gave Creel the power to absorb and duplicate the physical properties of anything he touched or touched him, including mystical properties of objects and the superpowers of beings. Under the name of "Absorbing Man" and using his newfound powers, Creel escaped from prison but lost to Thor in battle. Afterward, Creel was recruited to join the Masters of Evil, where he met Titania, whom he eventually married. He's clashed time and again with Thor, the Incredible Hulk, the Avengers, and Spider-Man.


Absorbing Man is a Protector for Masters of Evil, and he's fortified with high Armor and Resistance stats. His M.O. is absorbing enemy attacks and clearing status effects. He gains Taunt on spawn in all game modes, making him a powerful asset for any team, and bolsters himself by copying and clearing a positive effect from his attacker. Absorbing Man also helps his partner in crime, Titania, when they're allies by granting her Counter in Cosmic Crucible.

Kang the Conqueror

Nathaniel Richards was born in the 40th Century of an alternate timeline where Earth never entered the Dark Ages. Gifted with a genius intellect, Nathaniel studied robotics and cross-dimensional recordings from Earth-616 (mainstream Earth) before discovering time travel technology that had been left behind by his dimension-hopping ancestor. Bored with the peace of his planet, Kang used his ancestor's records and technology to become an overlord of the time-space continuum. Armed with his century's technology that gave him the equivalent of superhuman abilities, he took on the name of Kang the Conqueror and set out to tame time and space. Kang's frequent time-traveling created countless versions of himself, some of whom became heroes and attempted to eliminate the original Kang. This powerful villain has squared off against the Fantastic Four, Avengers, and even Doctor Doom while attempting to rule over Earth-616.


Kang the Conqueror is a Blaster and on top of big Damage to aid his attacks, he has great Speed stats. He bends time to his will by manipulating the Speed Bar of both his allies and enemies, including an "On Spawn, Speed Up for 2 turns to himself and Masters of Evil allies." Kang also takes chance out of the equation by allowing his Masters of Evil allies to reach 100% Crit Chance. And while he's powerful in Cosmic Crucible, in general, Kang the Conqueror is especially potent on Offense.

Moonstone

Karla Sofen was a renowned psychiatrist who took pleasure in manipulating her patients into paranoia, rather than helping them. She used her master hypnosis abilities to force the body of Lloyd Bloch – the villain known as Moonstone – to reject the stone that gave him his power. Once in possession of the moonstone, Karla's body absorbed it, making her the new Moonstone and granting her spectacular abilities, including flight, super strength, speed, intangibility, and photon blasts. As Moonstone, she joined the Masters of Evil and fought against Captain Marvel and the Avengers. And although Moonstone has fought on the side of heroes on occasion, she returns to her villainous ways when the ends suit her.


Moonstone is a Controller and her powerful kit is bolstered with high Focus and Speed stats. This master manipulator has two abilities that Stun enemies, applies Trauma in Cosmic Crucible, and her Ultimate ability, "Phasing Punishment," lowers enemy Speed Bar. Moonstone also gives her Masters of Evil allies a boost in Cosmic Crucible in the form of additional Focus.
