MARVEL CONTEST OF CHAMPIONS

Luck be a lady as Domino enters the Contest this Thursday, June 7!

Neena Thurman AKA Domino is the lucky result of an unlucky government weapons program designed to breed the perfect weapon. After escaping a top-secret facility with her mother, she honed her Mutant ability to manipulate probabilities and joined the mercenary group known as X-Force. Get a glimpse of Domino in action above!

Domino’s basic abilities include Luck, Critical Bleed, and Critical Damage. She’s great when Bleed is present. Whether attacking or defending, if the enemy triggers Bleed, she’ll be in a good place. Conveniently, a lot of notorious Skill Champions rely on stacking Bleeds. Opponents that trigger abilities frequently, such as on every hit, will have a chance to fail on each of those events, and therefore trigger her Signature Critical Failure Ability often. Tech opponents that don’t Bleed, don’t inflict Bleed, or possess few abilities like Vision can walk all over Domino.

This assassin has EIGHT Synergy bonuses — Six Pack with Deadpool, which gives her +10% damage against Champions that aren’t female or robots; X-Force with Deadpool, where each time she performs a well-timed Block, the chance for her to be Lucky increases by +10% the next time she fills a Bar of Power. Weapon X Strike Team with Old Man Logan or Sabretooth allows hers to avoid an attack by Dashing Back. Mercs for Money with Masacre allows Domino to Debuff for a second longer. Code Red Revelations with Red Hulk lets Domino’s Heavy Attacks inflict an Incinerate that deals damage equal to that Heavy Attack’s damage over 2 seconds. Better Luck Next Time with M.O.D.O.K. or Taskmaster gives her a +20% chance to activate them during her next fight if she’s never hit with a Special Attack while both Lucky and Unlucky were active. It’s Complicated with Cable sees Domino starting the fight with either Lucky or Unlucky active for 7 seconds. And lastly, Romance with Colossus or Wolverine gives all Teammates a +4% Power Gain.

That’s not all!

The Battlerealm is in disarray as Thanos has been defeated and the Grandmaster MIA after being stripped of his power. Champions, prepare for Assassin Assignments as Domino doles out assignments 2-3 times a day for all you mercenaries in hopes of locking down the most lucrative scores. Impress her enough, you’ll unlock rewards and you may trigger a bigger contract with Merc Missions for your Alliance! While Assassin Assignments are short quests; Merc Missions are Bounty Missions (short, 2 fight quests that each consist of 4 difficulties). This event will run until July 2!

For long time Marvel fans of Cloak and Dagger, you’ll finally get to see these young teens in action when the brand-new, original “Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger” series premieres on Freeform this Thursday, June 7!

While the coming-of-age series will be based in New Orleans, the comics are based in MU’s New York, but their strong relationship is unchanged. Their synergetic bond is based in Cloak’s ability to summon and enter the Darkforce Dimension which is counteracted by Dagger’s psionic light. If you’re not familiar with Tandy Bowen and Tyrone Johnson, not to worry, we have a few comics that will get you familiar with the duo that are Light and Darkness incarnate.

After a successful run-in with Spider-Man, Cloak and Dagger were given their own four-issue limited series. This book was unique because it didn’t focus on costumed heroes and villains, but instead on the pair’s crusade against drug dealers.

STRANGE TALES (1987)

Cloak and Dagger paired up with Doctor Strange for STRANGE TALES! This series was significant because the duo finally got a nemesis—Mister Jip, an evil mystic tied to the Kamar Taj, who kicks off conflict by deceiving Cloak.

The first issue of THE MUTANT MISADVENTURES OF CLOAK AND DAGGER series has Dagger blind; writer Terry Austin, with help from the American Foundation for the Blind, was able to show an accurate impact of the impairment not only on how it affected heroics but for blind people’s everyday lives.

You've met Tandy and Tyrone - now get a look at the rest of their universe!

We’re less than two months away from the premiere of “Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger,” only on Freeform! Don’t miss the two-hour premiere, on Thursday, June 7 at 8pm ET/PT!

You’ve been introduced to our two leads — Tandy Bowen (played by Olivia Holt) and Tyrone Johnson (played by Aubrey Joseph). Now meet the rest of the key players in their lives. Marvelites, you may recognize some of the characters from their comic book origins.

As a refresher:

Tandy Bowen (played by Olivia Holt) was once privileged little girl, who watched as her family was destroyed by a disastrous storm that uprooted her life. Now in her late teens, an unexpected encounter with a boy named Tyrone sparks a life changing event.

Olivia Holt as Tandy

Tyrone Johnson (played by Aubrey Joseph) is young man who wanted nothing more than to prove he was fearless. But when everything he held close was taken away, life taught Tyrone to be afraid. Now older and more sheltered, Tyrone closes himself off. But when he meets a girl named Tandy his life changes forever.

Aubrey Joseph as Tyrone

Detective Brigid O’Reilly (played by Emma Lahana) is accustomed to working in a man’s world but she isn’t looking to be “one of the guys”. Her New York sensibilities have hardened her from being too friendly or open, setting her apart from her Louisiana counterparts. Brigid believes in justice and doesn’t think that anyone should be above it, including other cops. Especially other cops.

Father Delgado (played by Jaime Zevallos) is constantly seeking redemption in spite of the fact that he’s not sure that he deserves it. As a school counselor and priest, Delgado is a rock to Ty. Oppressed by the collar, he leads more through words than example, as he still struggles daily with the life he has chosen.

Detective Connors (played by J.D. Evermore) is contradiction of a man. Connors embraces an intimidating persona that overcompensates for a secret he keeps close to the vest.

J.D. Evermore as Detective Connors

Liam (played by Carl Lundstedt) is a salt-of-the-earth townie. Liam operates as Tandy’s partner in crime while moonlighting as her boyfriend. But underneath this rough-around-the-edges appearance, Liam has big dreams. All of them include Tandy.

Carl Lundstedt as Liam

Melissa Bowen (played by Andrea Roth) is the eternal optimist, despite struggles to adapt to her new existence. She’s complex and compromised, and often needs to fill her edges, but her love for her daughter burns brightly outside.

Andrea Roth as Melissa

Adina Johnson (played by Gloria Reuben) invests every aspect of her being into giving her son the life she believes he deserves. But she props up and protects Tyrone so much she almost forgets to love him.

Gloria Reuben as Mrs. Johnson

Otis Johnson (played by Miles Mussenden) trudges through his desk job to keep his family safe and happy. All while too-quietly mourners a loss. When he can, this working-class father does what he can to ensure his son Tyrone will grow up to be a man.

Miles Mussenden as Mr. Johnson
