J. Jonah Jameson has claimed to have uncovered the identity of Spider-Man, but he’s only teased his readers with this and hasn’t published yet. The various members of the Sinister Six see this as their chance to finally rid themselves of Spidey and they aren’t willing to wait for the next edition! They want this information NOW! (Of course if they can cause massive destruction along the way, that’s even better!)
Heroes must fight their way through several different floors of the Bugle and remove the villains from the premises by any means possible. The Operation culminates with a rooftop fight against a new villain, The Vulture!
Editor’s Note: J. Jonah Jameson’s sources of information may not be entirely reliable. The opinion’s expressed in said article belong to the author.

Nightcrawler is available starting today, July 20th exclusively to VIP Accounts!
With this update, players’ chances of receiving costumes from a loot box will improve substantially. Marvelous Loot Boxes now hold costumes for these rarity tables: Rare, Epic, Cosmic, and Ultra Cosmic! If players receive a duplicate costume within a loot box, they will receive a set amount of Marvelous Essence in place of that costume.
In addition, new hero-specific Ultimate Upgrade Tokens and Experience Tokens will also be included as possible rewards within Marvelous Loot Boxes boxes. In case you missed it, boxes of 10, 25, and 50 Marvelous Essence were also recently added as possible rewards within Marvelous Loot Boxes with the previous update.
As part of these changes, players will also now be able to earn Marvelous Loot Boxes in-game just by playing! Players will earn one-time boxes the first time they reach levels 5, 12, 15 and 30 with any Hero. In addition, one Marvelous Loot Box will be awarded to every Hero that the player reaches level 60 with! These Marvelous Loot Boxes will be granted to players retroactively to existing players that have already leveled Heroes to these milestones prior to this update. Note that Marvelous Loot Boxes awarded for reaching level 60 are only awarded once per Hero - additional Marvelous Loot Boxes will not be awarded when reaching Level 60 on a Prestiged Hero.
Please note that to receive your level 60 Heroes’ Marvelous Loot Boxes after this update for Heroes that were already level 60, you will need to swap to each level 60 Hero in your roster after the update.
With larger loot tables and improved drop rates being applied to all loot boxes, players should also expect changes to costume availability. Beginning with this update, individual costumes will no longer be sold directly for Gs within the in-game store. Costumes will instead become available as part of current and future loot boxes.
The affected costumes are:
We plan to rotate the costumes available in the loot boxes out every few months, but players looking for particular costumes after this update can use their Marvelous Essence (given in each loot box) to acquire them directly from the Marvelous Essence vendor Moondragon, located in all Hubs. She will carry all costumes in the loot boxes available at that time.
Starting today, these will be the costumes in rotation within the Marvelous Loot Box:
