Heroes may be a staple in comic books but it looks like they’re joining a different kind of universe. NBA 2K21 is launching the Age of Heroes with MyTeam Season 5. It introduces new players, new challenges, and of course, new rewards. Season 5 is also launching two new collections that offer hero versions of players from the Golden Age and Modern Age.

Hero-themed Cards

Season 5 is bringing to the game 15 players from each age. Players belonging to the NBA’s Golden Age include Shaquille O’Neal and Manu Ginobili. Modern Age, meanwhile, includes the likes of Mitchell Robinson and Luka Doncic.

Signature Challenge

While a lot of fans continue to argue who’s really the GOAT, there’s no question that Michael Jordan is at the top of the list. After all, he had six rings spread out on two three-peats. For this season’s challenge, players have the chance to experience what it’s like to be in the shoes of his Airness.

Titled as “The Last Shot,” players get to play through one of MJ’s iconic moments. In particular, it’s the game-winning shot that Jordan made against the Jazz to get their second three-peat and sixth championship. This was also the game where he made 45 points.

Players who can finish this challenge earn the Diamond Jordan shoe and Hall of Fame badge. For those who don’t have the Michael Jordan card, they can redeem this locker code to get the MJ MyTeam card Jordan-Last Shot for free.
