'MARVEL SNAP' Goes Reality-Hopping in New Season with Blink and the Exiles

Time to teleport! Where in the Multiverse will you head to in the latest season of 'MARVEL SNAP'?

'MARVEL SNAP' Goes Reality-Hopping in New Season with Blink and the Exiles

Think your Monday morning commute is tough? Try hopping from one reality to another to fix broken timelines and save entire universes from collapse. This season of MARVEL SNAP, we welcome a multidimensional misfit group of mutants, each with their own quirks and powers. So, grab your reality-hopping passport for A Blink In Time, and get ready for a wild ride through the multiverse with Blink and the Exiles!

SEASON PASS

Blink originally used her powers of teleportation to send the X-Men to the moon, but we know you have bigger plans, which is why Blink will be using her powers to open a portal and swap the last card you played with a higher-cost card from your deck!

NEW CHARACTER: Blink

Blink was part of a group of mutants captured by evil alien race called the Phalanx. She helped save the others, but accidentally killed herself with her powers in the process. The immortal External and magician Selene resurrected her and told her that the X-Men had betrayed her, convincing Blink to fight against them. Blink later realized her error and rejoined Wolverine’s X-Men team.

The Blink of Earth-295 was raised in the Age of Apocalypse by Sabretooth, but became unstuck in time, exiled from her home reality. Recruited by the Timebroker, she and a team of fellow Exiles were charged with repairing the broken links in the chain of realities.

She is a mutant with the ability to create teleportational warps and carries a dagger and a set of javelins. Her mutant name refers to the “blink!” sound that occurs when she opens portals.

NEW CHARACTERS!

Now that you’ve used Blink to trade that Wasp for a Magneto, let’s see who else is getting pulled into battle!

SERIES 5

Nocturne

T.J. (Talia Josephine) Wagner is the daughter of two of her reality's most successful heroes, Nightcrawler of the X-Men and the Scarlet Witch of the Avengers. She was raised primarily in the X-Men Mansion. Her mother continued to serve with the Avengers separated from Nightcrawler since her parents were unable to effectively go on missions together without compromising their team's safety. Nocturne trained hard and eventually became an X-Man. She fell in love with her fellow X-Man, James Proudstar, and had a tumultuous relationship with him.

Nocturne awoke one night to find herself unhinged from time. The mysterious Timebroker informed her if she did not join the Exiles her father would die at the hands of Mystique during a battle with the Hellfire Club.

Nocturne soon found she disliked the life-or-death missions but she enjoyed her new team. She began to fall in love with her teammate, T-Bird. Ironically, T-Bird was John Proudstar, the other reality older brother of her boyfriend. The relationship was a rocky one, but the two were able to work it out and stay together.

 

SERIES 5

Sage

Little is known of the life of the woman known as Tessa except that she had lived in a small village in the Balkan region of Europe whilst still a young girl, and that she had spent time in a harem under unrevealed circumstances. Just prior to her teenage years, Tessa found herself caught up in the Russian invasion of Afghanistan. She was forced to learn to fight to survive encounters with both soldiers and local bandits, and took weapons and equipment from the bodies of fallen combatants.

 

SERIES 5

Namora

The Atlantean-Human hybrid and mutant Aquaria Nautica Neptunia is nicknamed Namora, after her cousin Namor McKenzie, AKA Namor the Sub-Mariner, and grows up learning how to use her superhuman strength and underwater capabilities to protect others. She joins the Agents of Atlas, an elite group of secret superhuman operatives.

 

SERIES 5

Sasquatch

Walter Langkowski replaced his religious faith early on with a belief in and a dependence on science. He attended Pennsylvania State University on a football scholarship, where he met Robert Bruce Banner and became interested in gamma ray research. After graduating, Walter pursued his research independently while accepting a position with a professional football team, the Green Bay Packers, and married Veronica, an actress who bore him a son. After earning over a million dollars, Walter retired and returned to school, soon earning his Ph.D. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Walter began teaching at McGill University in Montreal and furthered his gamma ray research, including studying Banner’s famous transformation into the Hulk, and Veronica soon divorced him, taking their son.

At a new position with the Canadian government’s Department H, Walter worked with James Hudson, whose plans for a new super-hero team would eventually lead to Alpha Flight. Langkowski acted as technical and scientific support for Alpha’s precursor, the Flight, which included Smart Alec, a brilliant man with access to vast amounts of information, Snowbird, a goddess with the power to change to any Arctic animal, and Wolverine, a vicious mutant with a mysterious past. Eventually, Langkowski exposed himself to gamma rays, hoping to gain powers like Banner’s. Instead he opened a mystic barrier that allowed the Great Beast Tanaraq to pass through, and Walter assumed its form, wrongly believing his powers came from the gamma radiation. At first, Langkowski’s brain and personality remained in control of his monstrous Sasquatch form, and he joined Alpha Flight himself.
