Fly Higher, Further, Faster With the New Season of 'MARVEL SNAP'
Take flight with 'The Marvels' in an all-new season of 'MARVEL SNAP'!
We're happy to present MARVEL SNAP's latest developer update but instead of our usual approach, we wanted to mix things up all while keeping things chill. For our November season, you can look forward to new cards like Ms. Marvel, Gladiator, Annihilus, and Martyr! We're also adding 22 brand new Peach Momoko variants (Shop Takeover anyone?), and bringing back Drops on Twitch.
What are you waiting for? It's time to reach for the stars!
NEW CHARACTER: MS. MARVEL
A Pakistani-American growing up in Jersey City, Kamala Khan idolized Super Heroes like Carol Danvers, AKA Captain Marvel, never dreaming she’d have the opportunity to join her role models in safeguarding society from the forces of evil. With an Inhuman ability to alter shape and size, the newest Ms. Marvel employs an idealistic attitude as much as any power to make the world a better place.
NEW CHARACTERS & MORE!
Get ready to shake up the meta, build new decks, and unleash unique strategies with these brand new cards releasing throughout the month!
The fiercely proud Gladiator is the leader, or praetor, of the Imperial Guard, a multi-ethnic group of super-powered alien beings who act as enforcers of the laws of the Shi'ar Empire. Gladiator was amongst the first of the Imperial Guard encountered by the team of superhuman mutant adventurers known as the X-Men who sought to rescue the Princess-Majestrix Lilandra from her insane brother, then-Majestor D'Ken. Following the orders of their emperor, the Guard clashed with the X-Men and were on the verge of winning when the band of interstellar freebooters known as the Starjammers arrived to turn the tide of battle in the X-Men's favor.
The Guard and the X-Men subsequently clashed once more when the Shi'ar sought to end the threat to the universe posed by the cosmic entity known as the Phoenix, which had assumed the form of X-Men member Jean Grey. As praetor of the Guard, Gladiator was an obvious choice to be one of eight Guardsmen chosen to battle the X-Men. The Guard defeated the X-Men on this occasion, but the mutants were allowed to return to Earth after Phoenix seemingly committed suicide.
Gladiator was later amongst those few Imperial Guard members who opposed the treacherous Shi'ar High Council member Lord Samédàr who was aiding an attempted coup of the Shi'ar throne by Deathbird. Even after many of the Guard chose to side with Samédàr, Gladiator remained steadfast in his loyalty to then-Empress Lilandra.
Untold millennia ago, the Tyannans, a technologically-advanced semi-humanoid/leonine species of the anti-matter universe the Negative Zone, seeded barren worlds with life spores. A freak meteor collision hurled one of their ships into the volcanic planet Arthros, where the crew released their spores before starving to death. Many generations later, one of those spores evolved into a weak insectoid creature. Significantly intelligent due to a mutation, the creature found the Tyannan starship wreckage and used a knowledge transference helmet to master the advanced Tyannan technology. This enhanced his intelligence and strength, creating a "Cosmic Control Rod" and body armaments. Obsessed with survival, the paranoid creature, who came to be known as Annihilus, set out to destroy any other living being he viewed as a possible threat to his existence. Annihilus used his newly acquired power to dominate other lifeforms that had arisen from the spores on Arthros, and plotted to either conquer or destroy the neighboring worlds in the Negative Zone. He transformed many prisoners via the Tyannans' Gene Transmuter into his servile Scavengers.
Whether she’s known as Captain Marvel, Quasar, or Martyr, Phyla-Vell is a stalwart Super Hero who uses her cosmic abilities to protect the universe.
Phyla is the daughter of Elysius, a genetically engineered woman patterned after the Eternals of Titan. Years ago, Elysius conceives her son Genis-Vell using the preserved DNA of her beloved, the late Kree warrior Mar-Vell, AKA Captain Marvel, and artificially accelerates him to young adulthood with implanted memories of growing up on Titan. Genis eventually adopts the identity and heroic mission of Captain Marvel as his own. After the Negative Zone’s Lord Syphonn slew Elysius, Genis helped the cosmic entities Entropy and Epiphany re-create the universe following the seeming death of their parent Eternity. In the process, an action Genis was destined to carry out in the future, Elysius’ resurrection, was realigned into contemporary reality so that, as far as recent history was concerned, Elysius had been resurrected shortly after she had died, or possibly had never died at all.
