MARVEL PUZZLE QUEST

Spider-Man (Infinity War) arrives in the hit mobile game Marvel Puzzle Quest this week with the fresh Stark Iron Spider suit inspired by Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War! Recruit him onto your team this Thursday!

Our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man will have to use his wit, strength, and Spidey sense to help our other heroes stop Thanos from collecting all the Infinity Stones and enacting his master plan to wipe out half of all existence! The 4-Star Spider-Man (Infinity War) sees tons of new upgrades courtesy of. Tony Stark. Spidey can create web tiles to prevent damage to himself, hinder opponents, strengthen allies and deal additional damage to the enemy. Team up Spidey with other characters that can create web tiles like Miles Morales and Spider-Gwen!

The passive blue power Quick Reflexes activates his Spidey-sense letting Spider-Man anticipate danger and react accordingly. Whenever Spidey makes a match, create 2 web tiles. Enemy powers deal 12% less damage to Spider-Man for each web tile on the board. Whenever Spider-Man takes damage from an enemy power, remove half of all web tiles.

With Thwip, Thwip, Pow!, a green power, Spider-Man swings through the air lobbing a quick burst of web-shots into battle. His webs hit 4 random colored tiles, locking any enemy tiles, fortifying any friendly tiles and converting the rest to web tiles.

Proportional Punch, a red power, allows Spidey to grab his enemy with his cybernetic spider legs to deliver a blow with the proportional strength of a spider! It deals 333 damage plus 134 damage for every Blue, Green, or Red web tile on the board, and 67 damage for every other web tile.

Recruit Spider-Man (Infinity War) during S.H.I.E.L.D. Training – Heroes for Hire or Spider-Man & Friends. Don’t miss the following events as well – Spider-Man vs Sinister Six and S.H.I.E.L.D. Training both kick off this Thursday, May 31, while the Deadpool vs MPQ kicks off this Sunday, June 3! The Made Up Name tournament also kicks off this Sunday where you can snag Spider-Man (Infinity War) as a progression reward!

Thanos just can’t get Death off his mind. The consequences of a love spurned is the decimation of half the population with just the snap of his fingers. The aftermath of his uncontainable rage is an intergalactic battle full of intrigue and betrayal.

Marvel Cinematic Universe spotlight: Doctor Strange and Nebula are key to this story, as is the alluring Soul Stone.

ANNIHILATION (2006)

ANNIHILATION is an epic crossover that brings together several characters from across the Marvel Cosmic Universe. If you’re looking for a space opera with a blurred line between heroes and villains, this is the adventure for you.

Marvel Cinematic Universe spotlight: Appearances by the Nova Corps, Ronan the Accuser, Star-Lord, and Drax the Destroyer with a slight change to his appearance from his film version.

The epic culmination of the ANNIHILATION storyline, this follows the Guardians as they deal with Thanos, who is the avatar of Death, while Lord Mar-Vell is the avatar of Life. You can guess how this is going to go, they aren’t exactly going to share pleasantries over tea.

Marvel Cinematic Universe note: This is the first appearance of Lord Mar-Vell—an alternate version of Captain Marvel.

What is Marvel Unlimited?

Here’s how it all began—his tragic birth, oddly passive childhood, and a whole lot of gruesome killings, all leading up becoming the insane Dark Lord we know and love today. To say this is an extremely dark book is putting it mildly. You’ve been warned.

THANOS (2016)

Thanos (2016) #13

What is Marvel Unlimited?

Thanos wins and he’s still not happy? You don’t say. I guess there’s just no pleasing people…or obsessive dark overlords. Sadness, tragedy, loneliness, internal existential conflict: thy name is Thanos.
