Black Widow Release Date Moved!

So, as you know, Black Widow wasn't released yesterday. Which means that she's going to be released either next Wednesday, or next Tuesday! Like it was with Ant-Man two months ago. I'm super psyched because I'll bet anything July will bring an Amazing Spiderman hero release and a Lizard mission and the long awaited Mysterio mission. They may have some kind of Spiderman variant too, I've heard something about an Armored Spiderman that's exclusive to the real-life card game at the 'mo. As for August's hero line up, they have yet to release Grey Hulk, Squirrel Girl, Bishop, Charles Xavier, Commander Steve Rogers, and quite a few others! Plus, I've heard rumblings about something called Arctic Iron Man that will most likely be members-only and/or only part of the real-life card game. As a final note: when are they going to release Classic Wolverine? :)

Avengers Hulk


Unfortunately, the guys at the Amazing Society decided to make Hawkeye members-only, and, I suspect, Black Widow members only as well. That meant that I could spend the gold I was planning on getting Hawkeye with on Avengers Hulk, so here at last is Hulk's review.


Here's the turnaround! And now for the actual review...

EXPLORATION


Hulk is a normal jumping Hulk, and it's really fun to go around the zones with him. You can go practically anywhere! :D


His first emote is the same as his Hero Up, like Avengers Ironman, Thor and Captain America.
This emote is a trifle long, but it sure feels satisfying to smash those trouble bots with a tank top, (lol).
Speaking of which, that's probably a reference to The Incredible Hulk movie. I don't remember the movie too well, but I do remember something about a tank. I don't know, maybe it isn't. I'll probably need to watch that again...

I give his EXPLORATION a 4.6/5!

FIGHTING





Hulk immediately jumps in with a quick, powerful strike that briefly stuns enemies, which is extremely helpful, especially with those blue and gold robots! His combo chain looks smooth and cool. And quick. His Hero Up works well on crowds, it works even better if you have a damage boost.

I give his FIGHTING a 5/5!

COOL FACTOR


Hulk isn't exactly what I would call super cool, but because of his cool pants and surprisingly perfect hair, (I don't like it close up but far away it looks just like Ruffalo's, complete with greying temples!), not to mention his pretty awesome muscles, I give his COOL FACTOR a 3.9/5! :D

---

While taking the pictures for this review, I managed to level him up to 2.


Now to figure out some stuff...


All these guys have come out except Natasha, and Hawkeye is the only one who isn't available to all members. Will Black Widow also be Agents-Only? Or will she be available to everybody?
I'm betting on "Agents-Only" myself, but who knows? Only time will tell.

Mission Review?

Alas, once again I did not feel compelled to write a mission review. I'm afraid I've just been too busy as of late. Unfortunately, I've decided to only write mission reviews when I feel like writing them, because constricting myself to a weekly schedule was somehow too much for me.

A reminder: The Avengers Screenshot contest ends tomorrow! Hopefully, the day after that we will get Black Widow or Hawkeye! :D

Black Widow and Hawkeye Sneak Peek


At the end of the second "Fallen Asgard" trailer, there's a shot that includes Hawkeye and Black Widow!
This way, their entire costumes are visible! This shot has made me extremely excited about their upcoming releases! I hope one of them is released next week!

Nick Fury Released and Viewing in 3D!


Nick Fury was released as an Agent-Only character! Which is good because that means that Hawkeye and Black Widow will probably be for non-members! :D

I've developed a theory about why they didn't release Natasha or Clint before Nick. Currently there's an Avengers screenshot contest, where you take a photo of the four Avengers.


The reason they did this contest early, is, I suspect, to tide people over during their "sale week" period. Now, because it's early, they couldn't have Hawkeye and Black Widow in the contest. If they released either one NOW, while the contest is still going on, it wouldn't be fair to people who had sent in photos with only four Avengers. I believe that is why Nick Fury was released first.


The contest ends on the 12th. Which is a bit too close to a maybe release date for me. On the other hand, SHSO Avengers will still be on people's minds, and it might be a good way to promote the game by ending the contest with a release. However, I'd say there's a 59% chance that they aren't going to release them that week.

Anyway, I caught a Nick Fury running around in Asgard yesterday, and snapped an awful picture of him. However, compared to some of the other pictures I took, it was downright pretty.

Yup. In comparison, anything's pretty.

Here's the good picture.

That's a little better.

I couldn't get Nick Fury because I am a non-member at the moment, so I won't be able to give an inside scoop on his MOVEMENT, FIGHTING, and COOL FACTOR, but I can tell you that his first emote is where he summons Iron Man.

ANYWAY, there's bigger news to share. Yesterday I was looking at the bios of the heroes in the "Games" section of the website and noticed a button labeled "See in 3D!" under the hero's picture. It turns out that you can view heroes in 3D space when you aren't playing the game!!


This means I can finally zoom in really close to my favorite hero, Gambit!

Here's what the whole thing looks like:


As you can see, you can look at all the emotes, zoom in, zoom out and rotate the model either way.
It's really cool, so go check it out!

To wrap up, I just want to say sorry for not doing a mission review lately. It's been two or three weeks since I've done one. The reason is that I was busy with the What-If and countless other projects, so I just wasn't paying attention. I'll try to get on it soon.

Avengers Nick Fury Announced


YESSSS! Finally, some action in the new heroes department! :D
I'm guessing Nick will be out either tomorrow or next Wednesday! Here's hoping the rest of the releases follow him! :)

-- SHSOFan.

Poll Results!


The results are in! It looks like 57% said "WOW!", 28% said "I liked it." and  14% said "I didn't like it."

To the guys who said WOW: Thank you! Enjoy the new Batman video that will be out soon!

To the guys who said they liked it: Thank you for you're input, and please enjoy the video!

To the guy who said he didn't like it: I'm sorry that it didn't meet your expectations. If you have a better idea for a What-If that you wished I'd done instead, please tell me in the comments about it.

As you may have guessed, the next thing I will be working on will be the TDK Batman video. I will notify you when I release the video on my channel. :)

Detail on the Delay


Alright, so obviously SHSO has been holding out for about three weeks regarding the release of heroes, and there remain three heroes to release!

My guess is that next week will be another sale week, and the weeks afterword will be hero weeks. Even if my prediction isn't true, I'm pretty sure that we'll have a new hero within 14 days. Either that or the "Mysterio bait and switch" that they pulled before, (Mysterio was advertised on a Spider-Man month, but his mission was never released).
