Hello, True Believers, and welcome back to your friendly neighborhood Marvel Games Comic Connection, which — if you dive into the sensational stories I’m about to spotlight — will take you far beyond your neighborhood and out into the wild wonders of outer space, which is something we could all enjoy during this unique time.
If you’re a fan of the turn-based role-playing mobile game MARVEL Strike Force, then you are well aware that the dreaded Black Order, the warlords of Thanos, have entered the fray. Thanos has located another Infinity Stone, and now has sent Corvus Glaive, now available in the latest release, out to claim it in his name.
Collecting all 4 members of the Black Order — Corvus Glaive, Proxima Midnight, Cull Obsidian, and Ebony Maw — unlocks the Infinity Stones for the Mad Titan himself! But do you know where these lethal lieutenants first struck? Let’s break down the Comic Connection...

Shockingly, the Mad Titan was now even more powerful than ever before.
