My newest War of Heroes Wishlist cards

As more and more suggestions come in, my list grows. Here are a few of the latest suggestions.....

Hope Summers


Omega Sentinel




Thoughts on S.H.I.E.L.D Enforcement Training 2

As disappointing as the 1st Enforcement Training was for me, this 2nd go around is doubly so. The whole dynamic of the event is dull, drab, and unexciting. Sure, battling without the risk of losing silver is cool. And the feeling of dominance when you take out a Defensive leader is all well and good, but the "meat" of the event, as it were, is less porterhouse steak and more bologna.

For starters, the "prizes" are junk, in my personal opinion. I mean, do we REALLY need another Speed Spiderman??? We JUST got a new Spiderman card handed to us for Christmas, and now the very next event they make the top reward another one?? I am glad to see Emma Frost finally get herself into the game, though I think she could/should have had a better ability. And then the rare prize is another Mr Fantastic.... oh boy.... That prize only makes you wanna do mildly better than ok just so you DONT get stuck with it....

The shard exchange.... ugh.... I swear, you have a better chance of pulling something good from a Rally pack than you do from shards this time around. I personally have pulled MANY times from the exchange, and have to show for it (best cards) an ISO-8 card, half a dozen Vibrainium cards, a hand full of "common rare" villians, and more uncommons than I think I've had in my entire time of playing.... I constantly see, every time I go to trade in Rally Points, the listing of people pulling SR cards from shards, and often wonder just how in the fuck they manage to do that while I, and most of the people I talk to, continue to pull junk.

The ONLY thing I think I agree with and like about the event is the fact that the top prizes from the last event are NOT assault cards (ie Magneto and Juggernaut). Many people are complaining about that, but, least in my opinion, it makes sense. If you let those cards be assault cards, you basically give the advantage to the SAME people that won the last event, and you end up with the same people, over and over, winning. Its not fair for the rest of the people, and for Mobage, it would more than likely mean alot of people quitting the game, which means loss of revenue.

Overall..... the event blows. Unless you want to spend mass amounts of real money to buy power packs, you're limited to how many times you can attack, which limits how many valor points you can earn, which in turn means your ranking will never be more than best. Enforcement training is basically a way to trick people into buying PPs and feeding Mobage money in hopes of a "prize" that tbh isnt worth winning. I wont be spending my money on this event, and will be more than happy with the Emma Frosts that I will more than likely win.

Mobage is watching me!!!

Ok, maybe not really watching me, but at the least they have probes scanning my brainwaves and taking ideas. Dont believe me, just look....

On the left, the wishlist card I made WEEKS ago. On the right, the raider card they put out for the X-Men event. Hmmmmmm

Bucky Barnes! I mean come on. Seriously, how else would they come up with the idea to add HIM above everyone else???

Wrecker..... an assault card for the current Enforcement Training. Again, WHO would think to add HIM as an assault card!?

Emma Frost.... ok so MAYBE alot of people have been saying they wanted this, but still. She was one of the 1st wishlist cards I made, and now lookie lookie.... there she is!

Ok, so maybe Mobage isn't really bugging my brain for ideas, but still.... Here's hoping they continue this trend, and start bringing some of the characters we all REALLY wanna see.....

War of Heroes Wishlist Variants

Since Mobage seems to LOVE bringing out 101 different versions of the same characters (ie, the new Spiderman set to be released as a reward for the new Enforcement Training) I thought why not go ahead and get started on the second versions of some of my wishlist characters. Save Mobage some time.

(the card I personally think we should have had instead of ANOTHER Cyclops)

(I expect we'll see this during a future Spiderman Event)

(Also expect to see this during a Spiderman Event)

(SSR because I figured making it UR and fusable to Legendary was too obvious)

Sub Mariner
(Just because I personally like him)

Dr Doom
(Mark my words.... You WILL see almost this exact same card sometime in the near future!)


(Can't believe we dont already have this one)

Black Suit Spiderman
(I think Bruiser fans should be able to play Spiderman too!)


Beta Ray Bill
(Why? Because anyone worthy of lifting Mjolnir is worthy of being an SR)

Thoughts on the 2nd installment of S.H.I.E.L.D. Enforcement Training.

 Ok, so on the heels of what I would call a half successful X-Men Event comes part 2 of something that was in most peoples opinion a total fail. And to be honest, I personally won't be fighting hard for the "rewards" they are showing. Really, another Spiderman? Cuz thats what we needed, right? And another Rare Mr Fantastic? Seriously? At least they finally brought Emma Frost into the game, though I'm kinda disappointed to see her as just a SR. And personally, the lack of a Bruiser card reward is just crap.

And to make the training even worse, they are changing what was the ONLY saving grace of part one: The shard exchange and its rewards. Last time, you could exchange your shards 3 at a time for what basically was a UCP, with seemingly the entire card list up for grabs. (I personally pulled my [Optics Captain] Cyclops and a few other SRs via the shard pull). Now it seems they are making it basically the purple shard exchange from the X-Men event. Does this mean another abundance of rally points and silver? They only plus COULD be the chance at more PPs and PKs, though I'm not sure the trade off is worth it.

Its sad when an event hasnt even started and I'm already disappointed in it.

Have a Marvel-ous Christmas!!!

Yes, a bit on the cheesy side, but hey, had to at least attempt to keep this in the realm of the Marvel Universe, right? lol.

Here's wish you all... (and by you all I mean the 4 people that follow this blog. lol)... a Happy Holiday, with friends and loved ones.

Next Installment of Wishlist Cards for Marvel War of Heroes

I continue to receive suggestions/ideas for other characters I've either missed or forgotten about. So, here comes your newest collection of wishlist cards. This time is a mix of a bit of everything. Heroes, Villians, old and new.




Crimson Dynamo


Grey Gargoyle



Jack O'Lantern

Madam Masque



Viper (Madam Hydra)




As always, if you have any suggestions/ideas, let me know. If you've sent me a suggestion and I have yet to make a card for it, I'm not ignoring you. Finding up to date artwork for some of the older characters is sometimes difficult. I suspect that if some were to be used in game, new art would need to be done for said cards.

UPDATE 12/23

Now I know I'm the biggest advocate for not using the same characters over and over again, but these next two aren't technically the same characters. lol

Scarlet Spider

US Agent
Steve Rogers DID don the US Agent attire for a brief period, but the latest incarnation of US Agent is NOT Steve Rogers, and therefore I consider it a different character.
