Marvel Heroes Diary: Day 0 - The Story So Far...

Having purchased the Ultimate Pack, I had access to all the characters and costumes that were currently in the game. I was spoilt for choice. With 2 of my favourite characters from the Marvel Universe, Gambit and Ghost Rider, not available in the game yet, I couldn't choose one over the other, from the existing heroes. In the end, it was between Deadpool and Black Panther. I chose Deadpool for his Enhanced Pirate costume. Having bought the Ultimate Pack I chose something that I should choose something exclusive. (At least, that's what I thought.. I must have missed something as the Pirate Deadpool costume is now available for purchase. No worries, still an awesome Enhanced costume.)

After completing the story on Normal difficulty, I was doing the Green Terminal challenges for the Cube Shards as the Red Terminal ones were too tough. After a while, I got bored with Marvel Heroes and eventually stopped playing.

In early December, I got back into the game after several new updates. After spending most of my Gs (the in-game currency) on Stash space, the Mini-Dragon Man pet, several Chase costumes previously, I still had enough Gs left to purchase the Gambit Bundle.

While I am playing Deadpool as a purely ranged character, I felt Gambit's skills suited a mixed play-style. His mix of melee and ranged has been very fun to play with in early levels. Stopped playing Gambit for a while as I'm waiting for a friend to reach the same level. 

Classic Gambit over Modern Gambit anytime!

Recently also started on a Colossus as I need an extra character at least to help me farm Odin Marks. Yes I've been farming Odin Marks since coming back to Marvel Heroes. Hoping to get a Legendary Weapon for Deadpool soon.

A couple of days back, I had the chance to join a party in the "Cow Level".. My first time attempting it.

Daddy Deadpool Device - 1 of my Boss Drops.

I was hoping to acquire the Daddy Deadpool device for the Baby Deadpool summon. Thought it would be really cool and fun to have a little Deadpool fighting alongside me. It was a huge plus that the stats were much better than my current cosmic mask. 

Some of my current goals:
Deadpool - Acquire 300 Odin Marks for a Legendary Weapon
Deadpool - Reach Level 60

Reach Crafter Level 20

Current Hero Progress

Deadpool: Level 56
Gambit: Level 23
Colossus: Level 21
