MARVEL SNAP The Savage Land Seasonal Rewards Spotlight


MORE. NEW. CARDS. Be ready to meet some ferocious characters from across the MARVEL multiverse! These new cards will be added to Series 5 and available to unlock on the Collection Level Track & Token Shop.


While on an expedition to Tierra del Fuego, geneticist/psychologist Dr. Karl Lykos was bitten by a mutated pterodactyl from the prehistoric Savage Land which infected him with a genetic virus that forced upon him the need to drain the life energy of others to survive. Lykos eventually became a hypnotherapist, and constructed a device to help drain his patients’ energies. After absorbing the energy of the mutant Havok, Lykos was transformed for the first time into the pterodactyl-like Sauron, named after the arch-villain of Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings novels.


The only daughter of a wealthy diamond miner, Shanna grew up in the Zaire jungles. At age six, Shanna witnessed her father’s accidental fatal shooting of her mother, starting a lifelong loathing of firearms. Traumatized, she moved to America to live with relatives, studying to become a veterinarian; after graduation she worked for the New York Central Park Zoo. The death of a leopard she had raised led Shanna to quit, taking its cubs, Ina and Biri, to raise them in the African Dahomey Reserve, which she protected from poachers and others as “Shanna the She-Devil”.


A mutant, Alison Blaire AKA Dazzler can manipulate sound into light. The louder the source, the more powerful the output. This can manifest in a variety of different ways. She began by creating her own light shows, but learned that she could blind people with it. Over the years, she figured out how to create holograms and other distractions, plus hard light constructs that can be used as weapons. She can also shoot bursts of light out of her fingers, hands, eyes, and other parts.

Between her X-Men training and her years fighting for survival on Earth and the Mojoverse, Blaire also become a formidable fighter. Even when she loses, though, she seems to have a knack for coming back from the brink of death.


One of the most mysterious and powerful mutants in existence, the ancient called the Shadow King—sometimes known as Amahl Farouk—has terrorized humanity since the days of early man. The telepathic terror has been a frequent and notably cruel foe of the X-Men in his never-ending quest to rule the astral plane, while enslaving as many people as possible with his superior psionic abilities.

So, when can you expect new cards?
