After welcoming the legendary Phoenix to the fight, this week we're prepping for the Director of S.H.I.E.L.D., Nick Fury. We also have events on the way for the King of Wakanda, a shocking Blitz, and Premium Orb updates. Let's start with our next Legendary Event.
Nick Fury En Route
Prep your Kree minions for battle, because the Nick Fury Legendary Event preview is almost here. You'll need a 5-star team of Kree minions to have a chance at recruiting the leader of S.H.I.E.L.D., so start ranking up and gearing up your blue battalion.
If you're light on Kree Oracle shards, don't forget that Kree Oracle won the Community Vote and is coming to Blitz on 7/15, so stock up on Blitz Charges!
S.T.R.I.K.E. Raid: Alpha ft. Black Panther
Alpha Raids are back! Coordinate with your Alliance and battle for a chance to earn shards for the royal member of the Wakandan Raid team: Black Panther!
Get ready to rumble for Shocker shards in the Vibro-Smashers Blitz! His kit features both single and AoE attacks that hit for Piercing damage and increase in ferocity with each enemy City Hero. Shocker also can amp up team attacks by granting Sinister Six allies Offense Up. Don't miss this opportunity to recruit and rank up the Blaster for the City-stomping Sinister Six team!
New Orb Additions
Three new characters are heading to an orb near you. First up is Minn-Erva. The Cosmic Kree healer has entered the Premium Orb.
If you're looking to add a venomous arachnid to your Spider-Verse squad or shield your Power Armor team, look no further, because Spider-Man (Miles) and Rescue are being added to the Premium Orb next week. Want even more Miles? He'll be swinging into the Blitz Orb and Store as well.
Ultimus VII - First Strike Winners
After an intense competition, the finish was too close to call and both "Pants of Hulk" and "Legion_of_Cabal" have won the Ultimus VII - First Strike challenge! Congratulations to both Alliances for conquering this intimidating Raid challenge and showing that Ultimus and his forces were no match for their strength and will.
To honor the winners, we'll be holding a community celebration with huge rewards! We'll announce further details in the coming weeks, so be on the lookout.
That's all for this week! As always…
Good luck, Commanders!
