A new major threat is arriving and once again it’s up to Marvel’s Avengers to put a stop to it. This time it’s in the form of the Cosmic Cube at the hands of none other than Scientist Supreme Monica Rappaccini. It all begins tomorrow, June 24, until July 8.

The Cosmic Cube was first introduced to the Marvel universe through Tales of Suspense #79 back in July 1966. This item is truly powerful and can control both matter and energy. In the game, the signs were there during Operation: Hawkeye – Future Imperfect. It turns out the new weapons project being undertaken by Advanced Idea Mechanics was the Cosmic Cube.

The new Cosmic Cube story follows from Operation: Hawkeye – Future Imperfect. It also prepares for the arrival of the new expansion Black Panther – War for Wakanda, launching in August.

New Villain Section

The fight for control of the Cosmic Cube is available through a new Villain Sector dubbed as “Beating the Odds.” Considering the power of this weapon, the Avengers need to use their heroic powers and wit to neutralize the threat. Players can try to beat the Scientist Supreme solo or as a team composed of four members.

To play Beating the Odds, players need to have a Hero of Power Level 35+. Rewards to be earned include:

  • Intro Mission Chain Rewards
