A new Age of Apocalypse is dangerously imminent in our Age of Apocalypse Event!

This “Apocalypse Awakens” content will challenge even the most seasoned Marvel Heroes Omega player.



These new costumes for Jean Grey, Storm, Psylocke, and Magik are also now available alongside Omega Prestige versions of each Hero! Players can unlock these ultra-rare costumes through the new Apocalypse Loot Box, or together with all four new Omega Prestige Heroes in our Age of Apocalypse Event Omega Pack.

This latest patch also introduces a brand new difficulty level complete with a brand new tier of gear! Players can now unlock an Omega Trial from the Waypoint menu upon successfully completing the Cosmic Trial. Once unlocked, players can access the new Omega Difficulty, which offers an even greater challenge with even greater rewards. Omega Difficulty offers improved XP, credit drops, currency rewards, and S.H.I.E.L.D. Supply points compared to Cosmic Difficulty. In addition, Omega difficulty is the only difficulty in which you can earn our new Omega Item sets!

Olivia Munn Talks ‘X-Men: Dark Phoenix’

Collider: Are you currently working on X-Men: Dark Phoenix?

Olivia Munn: I don’t know what I’m supposed to say. I’m supposed to be vague. That’s my answer. I’m horrible at that. It’s like a two parter, this movie. That’s more than I’ve said, in general. I don’t know why people have to be so secretive.

What’s it been like to work with Simon Kinberg, who’s been with the franchise as a producer, but is making his directorial debut with this film?

Munn: I love Simon Kinberg. He’s such a visionary. We’re all so close. Anytime that you’re working on a project where everyone hangs out and they’re close, it’s a breeding ground for great content and a great experience. I think Simon is gonna kill it. He’s gonna do such a fantastic job with it. When I came on, he pitched me to be Psylocke, and I didn’t know him until I worked on that movie, but you see how everyone is friends and they hang out. It’s really cool! I just filmed a role in Josh Duhamel’s movie (The Buddy Games), up in Canada. He wrote, directed and is starring in it, and it’s the first film he directed and wrote. He got a bunch of his guy friends to be in the movie, and it was one of the most fun experiences. I’ve never worked on something where it’s another actor’s passion project. It’s interesting ‘cause you see how, when the director is also the writer and it’s a passion project, everybody steps up. You always try to do your best, in general, but there was a different energy. Those guys – Nick Swardson, Dax Shepard, James Roday, Dan Bakkedahl and Kevin Dillon – had me laughing the entire time. I only filmed for five days, but it was so much fun and they were so funny. Nick Swardson is one of the funniest human beings. Working with Simon, as a director, has that similar thing. It makes it more fun because everyone just steps up, a little bit more.

If you were a part of your own secret ninja group of warriors that save the day, what would you want your power or ability to be and what would your own personal mech look like?

Munn: I know it’s crazy, but I would take on Psylocke’s powers, to be able to create anything with your mind. That’s why Psylocke was always one of my favorite X-Men characters. The fact that she could create anything with her mind, but she still chooses to fight, she wants the challenge. That and/or the ability to control time. If you could control time, you’re good. And if you have the power to create anything with your mind, you could keep creating different mechs.

#tbt: X-Men #38

#tbt: X-Men #38 – In the psychic plane, Psylocke is about to confront Jean Grey. Jean reminds her that this exercise is designed to help her refine her telepathic abilities.  Betsy offers a very belated apology for flirting with Cayclops, although she was certainly influenced by Kwannon’s more sensuous presence in her mind, the truth is, it was she who found Scott to be very attractive. Written by Fabian Nicieza and art by Andy Kubert. Read full summary here.
