Super Hero Squad Online: Update For April 6th, 2012 - Vision
By: Chris "DOC" Bushley
[[wysiwyg_imageupload:1279:]]It's the first week of April and we are already getting a bevy of updates from Marvel's blockbuster MMO — Super Hero Squad!
Just announced yesterday, Ultron's favorite son, the Vision has made his triumphant debut! Full of intangibility, flying and density changing abilities, the Vision will set you back 600 gold pieces but it's well worth it. And the best part about him, he is available to everyone, unlike S.H.S.O.'s last debut of MK1 Iron Man.
Speaking of Iron Man, there are now two new Iron Man themed card battles that have been released as well! Revolving around the Hulkbuster Iron Man armor, the first quest will cost 175 gold and you will receive two common and one uncommon Iron Man themed cards when completed. The second, and harder quest, will cost 225 gold but you will reap the reward of one uncommon, one rare and one super rare Iron Man themed cards for your efforts! Not too shabby if you ask me!
Finally, for a limited time only, Squaddies have the chance to acquire two different Asgardian warriors at a discounted price! That's right, folks, now you can have your very own Valkyrie or Modern Costume Thor — for half their original prices! Each battle hungry warrior will cost a mere 300 gold, but time is wasting and the sale will be over before you know it — so be pertinent about your purchases! This is the second dual sale that S.H.S.O. has had in the past three weeks, the first was Red She-Hulk and Captain Marvel, and it will be interesting to see if the trend continues in future months. I, for one, think this a great opportunity to beef up your squads and keep all the little Squaddies interested about the game after they have "Maxed Out" their other characters.
Well, all the characters from the loading screen have been introduced as playable characters — except one. I am very curious to see how Ant Man will be introduced into the game, and whether or not he and Hawkeye will be able to team up with their famous arrow shot! One can only hope!
Stay tuned for updates and a full rundown of how the S.H.S.O. card game sells. A certain CBN movie reviewer and I will be battling it out as soon as it's released! It's Hero Up Time!
