Diamonds are everyone’s best friend this week with the introduction of a Mutant that’ll leave enemies crumbling like cubic zirconia. We’ve also got a hot chance to dig up Promotion Credits and events featuring some of the best that Homo superior has to offer, including a magnetic legendary character’s return and Blitzes that’ll tap into your animal side. Now, get your thoughts in order, because an omega-level mind manipulator has arrived...
Taking her rightful place on the Mutant throne is Emma Frost, the White Queen! A gifted Mutant telepath, Emma Frost is capable of extraordinary feats of mental communication, mind control, astral projection, and psionic attacks. She can also transform her organic tissue into a diamond-like substance, where she gains increased strength and is nearly indestructible.
Harkening back to her days of performing wicked deeds for the Hellfire Club, Emma Frost joins S.T.R.I.K.E. as a Villain Controller who can slot into Mutant Villain teams, like the Marauders, to take on enemy pressure and produce sparkling results. Along with flipping enemy positive effects and clearing ally negative effects, Emma can mind control the most powerful enemies or her own allies for a heavy attack. Much like Captain Marvel’s Binary form, Emma Frost enjoys enhanced abilities while in Diamond form with increased Resistance and Armor, along with boosted power to her Basic attack. And if all that wasn’t enough, she also Heals each turn, giving her another level of sustainability.
For a breakdown of her cool abilities, check out this video (English only):
