The Teenage Timebomb
June 5, 2020

Greetings Commanders,

Get ready to drop bombs on the competition because we’re revealing X-Force’s explosive new weapon this week. We’ve also got opportunities to upgrade your offensive arsenal with Blitzes, a newcomer to the War Store, and a sale with the approval of your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. We recommend you watch your step in the next section so you don’t get caught in the blast zone...

Negasonic Teenage Warhead

Take out your pent-up teenage angst with X-Force’s newest member. Ellie Phimister -- a.k.a “Negasonic Teenage Warhead” -- is a mutant who can generate varying levels of explosive power. The energy she produces can be delivered via a small, focused attack or a massive concussive blast. 

Negasonic Teenage Warhead slots in as a Blaster for the X-Force team and brings the boom -- both for herself and her X-Force allies. She detonates enemies with high damage attacks and increases X-Force ally Damage on Alliance War Offense. Negasonic also gains Barrier and Speed Bar on each enemy turn, adding an element of personal defense.

Atomize your enemies:

    • X-FORCE allies gain Damage.

Upcoming Blitzes

Our next Blitzes feature two Blasters: a grizzled City veteran and high-flying fresh blood. First up, lock and load Punisher shards in the Violent Vigilante Blitz. And hot on Frank Castle’s heels is the Power Armor’s Blaster, Ironheart. Recruit and rank up Ironheart by Blitzing your way to her character shards in the Tech Prodigy Blitz.

War Store Addition
