Yelena MPQ

Trained as a Black Widow in the notorious Red Room, Yelena Belova scored the highest marks of any recruit. But can she forge her destiny as a spy and step outside the shadow of Natasha Romanoff?

The latest member to join the ranks of Marvel Puzzle Quest is Yelena Belova, who is inspired by the upcoming Marvel Studios' Black Widow.

The 5-Star Rarity, with the affiliation Heroes, has a tool kit that includes Top of the Class, Spycraft, and Military Surplus.

Yelena MPQ

As Top of the Class, a passive red power, Yelena uses her Red Room training to turn enemies' strength against them. At the start of the player's turn, if the enemy has at least 11 AP in any color, create 1 strength 110 Strike tile, deal 854 damage and reduce the enemy's largest AP pool by 4.

With Spycraft, a mid-cost purple power, not everything is as it seems. It creates up to 5 friendly Trap tiles in the enemy's strongest color. When matched or destroyed by the enemy, Spycraft Trap tiles deal 1263 damage and convert 3 AP of the enemy's strongest color to the enemy's weakest color.

Lastly, Yelena uses whatever tools she can find to take down the enemy with Military Surplus, a mid-cost green power. This deals 239 damage to the enemy team and destroys 2 enemy Attack, Protect, or Strike tiles, converting 1 AP of the enemy's strongest color to the enemy's weakest color for each tile destroyed. Destroyed tiles don't deal damage or generate AP.

Yelena Belova (Black Widow) is available at increased odds for a special limited time. Featured events include Strange Sights and I-Spy, both running April 23 - April 27, where Yelena Belova (Black Widow) Shards are Placement rewards.
