FoxNext's squad-based RPG Marvel Strike Force is set to receive some fresh characters from the X-Men and Iron Man series. They'll arrive as part of the game's latest update, which follows a sizable spending boycott on the title due to complaints regarding poor progression and mishandled IAPs.
Toad, who is described as a "slippery Controller", hails from the X-Men universe. His superpowered frog legs, gross tongue, and ability to excrete toxic goo make him one tricky combatant. He's able to debuff his rivals, causing them negative effects or clearing their own buffs. He can also team up with our next hero, Blob, for dangerous synergy attacks.
Blob is another member of the Brotherhood of Mutants. This plus-sized Protector is blessed with superhuman durability and strength. He's able to trap and expel objects using his gelatinous exterior, with his weight and ability to control gravity around him making him virtually unmovable. He makes use of taunts when his allies' health is low, and he can easily crush his foes using devastating AOE attacks.
Last, but by no means least, is Ironheart. Riri Williams (aka Ironheart) is a teenage genius who managed to reverse engineer an old version of Iron Man's suit. She's a Blaster capable of blowing her enemies to bits at a moment's notice.
A number of heroes have also gained all-new abilities, including Iron Man, War Machine, Magneto, Juggernaut, and more.
