    Yeah, now it's the movies' turn to do that several years in a row

    Eh, I pretty firmly believe that the movies will only really go there once, with Civil War. They didn't really do much of that in AoU, just kinda flirted with the idea (so I guess they went there just the answer was not yet not really).

    But yeah I genuinely hope that Civil War is Tony at his "worst" and that he is still nowhere near as bad as he's been in the comics.

    Tony's been like that for ages.

    Armor Wars was a one-man crusade against and everyone he thought was using his tech, and not just supervillains. He takes out SHIELD's Mandroids, the Guardsman at the Vault, the US Goverment's latest power armor, and even beats up Stingring when Stingray went "Dude, leave me alone I don't know what you're talking about." and it later turned out that Stingray's suit did indeed not have any of his tech.

    He got so bad that he wound up quitting the Avengers, beating up Cap, publically disowning Iron Man, and faking Iron Man's death.

    Angel is coming to Marvel Heroes as a team-up later this week, with another, free, surprise team-up in a week or two as part of the anniversary (confirmed to not be part of the Avengers, F4 or X-Men but is associated with a Marvel team that has an insignia in the game [Guardians, X-Men, Avengers, SHIELD, Fantastic Four] so my guess is Cosmo).

    Ant-Man is confirmed to be coming as next month's playable character, and he will be Scott Lang with a Hank Pym Enchanced costume later this year. August will feature two heroes: Kitty Pryde followed by War Machine.

    I hope War Machine has a bunch of Marvel vs. Capcom references too.

    I am expecting them to take cues from ultimate kitty pryde and have one of her trees be phasing/super density. probably phasing/density, ninjitsu, and lockheed?

    I really like the Team-Up overhaul they did

    it still isn't very deep but team ups having their own experience and proper skill tree is much more interesting than leveling alongside you and having a completely bare-bones skill tree

    The other team-ups confirmed for this year:
    Rescue
    Spider-Gwen
    Carnage
    Sunspot
    Captain America (Sam Wilson)

    I don't know, I always have mine in active mode. I assume they can, they gain XP whenever you do they just have a separate bar and leveling requirements.

    Depending on who they plan on adding after the already announced new heroes could be a nice character to add a mango sentinel summon skill. Although a mango sentinel team up would be nice too, let him assist everyone.

    Could probably get some cool gameplay with double war machines as the reference, be it a summon or an ultimate. Turn a nice reference into a fun gameplay feature or three with an endless supply of missiles.

    I remember when DCU Online and Marvel Heroes were both announced around roughly the same time and MH went pretty quiet for a while and then was revealed to be a Diablo style game meanwhile DCU was a "proper" MMO and was widely considered to be the more promising

    funny how that turned out

    Punisher could work. Make Daredevil seem slightly less evil by comparison.

    I didn't care for that guy on the Walking Dead because he looked too much like St. Elsewhere-era Howie Mandel. Then they shaved his head and it got even worse.

    Bernthal was the only really good part of TWD so naturally they got rid of him

    I never thought about it before but this casting makes total sense to me

    dataminers found some info in the last patch suggesting that the free team-up would be Elektra, which matches the hints they dropped about who it'd be, though nothing's confirmed yet. it could be that they're gearing up to make Elektra a surprise playable character, like they did with Loki and Taskmaster, and the team-up is a different character entirely.

    they'll also be giving away a free cosmetic pet the week after that, though I expect that'll be a reskin of an existing pet like the HERBIE and Old Lace giveaway pets have been.

    This might have come up in an interview I missed, but in that Iron Man preview, is that a prosthetic arm Tony's working on?

    Maybe Tony comes away from Secret Wars with a few extra war wounds.

    Even accounting for my bias towards Marvel, I still enjoyed DCU Online more than Marvel Heroes

    I didn't play either for more than a few weeks, though.

    I just tried it with a fresh team up, it leveled without being out.

    with the new team-up system, team-ups are by far more useful when you have them out than if you're just using their passive abilities, especially once you level them up enough to unlock their better abilities (AoE attacks, heals, buffs, etc)
