Lockjaw can currently be seen in-game, when previewing the event details for his release event, Hearts of Darkness. Players should take note that Hearts of Darkness is normally a 3-day event but will be running as a 4-day event this time. We are told that the first sub of the event will be 48 hours (so it will run as a 48/24/24 event).
Marvel.com has also just released their Piecing Together article on Lockjaw. Here’s a look at a few highlights…
Lockjaw’s first ability is Loyal Protector and it’s a Yellow Passive ability, so it doesn’t cost AP to use. Whenever an enemy match includes a friendly Special tile, Lockjaw jumps to the front, resisting a percentage of that damage and dealing damage to the enemy who messed with the player’s Special tile!
His second ability is called Royal Escort and it costs 9 Blue AP. This is his teleport ability that brings in a different Inhuman friend depending on which color is most present on the board. For Blue he teleports in Quake who shakes up the board and destroys random tiles of the enemy’s strongest AP while also doing damage (does not generate AP).
If there is yellow mostly present on the board, Lockjaw summons Kamala Khan to inspire everyone around her giving the team a burst of health. If Green is the most present on the board, Lockjaw summons Black Bolt, who with a whisper destroys the middle two rows dealing damage (does not generate AP).
If Purple is the most present, Lockjaw summons Medusa who users her hair to swap 16 pairs of random tiles, stealing any swapped enemy Strike, Protect, or Attack tiles and improving them. If Red is the most present, Lockjaw summons Crystal who deals damage and creates a Red Attack tile, Blue Protect tile and a Black Strike tile. If Black is the most present on the board, Lockjaw summons Karnak who deals damage to the enemy with the lowest health and stuns all the other enemies.
His last ability is called The Dog That Bit You and it costs 8 Green AP. For this ability Lockjaw follows a trail of psionic energy to track down his enemies and attack. This ability converts random basic tiles to Charged tiles. This power also has a Passive, where at the start of the turn, if there is a Charged tile in the enemy’s strongest color, it deals damage.
The article also reveals that his Versus event will be “called Inhu-Man’s Best Friend and it starts on September 14.” The MPQtips.com Upcoming Events page has been updated accordingly.
