[[wysiwyg_imageupload:1373:]]Today, in conjunction of the red carpet premiere of The Avengers, Super Hero Squad Online has updated itself to reflect all the movie goodness!
First up is a new loading screen that features the "movie" versions of Iron Man, Thor, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Hulk and Captain America facing off against Loki!
Not only that, Loki has taken over Asgard and his diabolical hands have corrupted the entire realm! Denizens are frozen in the streets, all the Thor and Valkyrie statues have transformed into versions of Loki and Nick Fury himself, tells you that the Avengers and the S.H.S. will need to team up in order to take Loki down! You can then access a Loki mission that will test your mental and physical prowess, and if you defeat Loki at his own game — you win The Cosmic Cube! Awesome!
Plus, today introduces the last classic Avenger from the previous load screen — Ant Man! He will cost you 600 gold but with all his Pym particle goodness, it's well worth it! And he's not the only character you can pick up for sale today in the shop. Now, only 300 gold each, you can acquire the X-Men's own star-crossed lovers — Gambit and Rogue! The Rajun' Cajun and the Southern Belle can really give your squad a merry mutant boost just in time to fend off all those Avengers! I really love these dual half price sales and it looks like they will continue to churn them out as long as we pick them up!
Well, enough talk! Get out there and save the world from that dastardly Loki before the movie hits on May 4th! I've got my ticket, did you get yours?
