Square Enix just announced that the latest Marvel’s Avengers update has gone live that includes a major new threat to contend with: Scientist Supreme Monica Rappaccini’s Cosmic Cube.
In Marvel’s Avengers Operation: Hawkeye – Future Imperfect, the Avengers discovered a nefarious new weapons project being undertaken by AIM and Scientist Supreme Monica Rappaccini: The Cosmic Cube. Originally appearing in Tales of Suspense #79 in July 1966, this item has the power to control matter and energy in the universe on an unknown scale. A mad genius mastermind at Advanced Idea Mechanics now holds the key to everything.
Monica has lost control of the Cosmic Cube in the new Villain Sector mission “Beating The Odds.” The weapon’s immense power has made her a greater threat, so it’s up to the Avengers to battle together or solo to claim victory.
During the Cosmic Threat Event, which will run from June 24 through July 8, the new Villain Sector will debut as well. The Cosmic Threat Event demands that players scour the globe in order to find Monica’s superweapon, the Cosmic Cube, which creates Cosmic energy trails. Players who participate in the Cosmic Threat Event missions and complete the Cosmic Damage challenges will earn a unique nameplate, gear, and other valuable rewards as they close in on and challenge AIM’s plans for using the Cosmic Cube.
The new Cosmic Cube content continues the storyline of February’s Marvel’s Avengers Operation: Hawkeye – Future Imperfect and lays the groundwork for the forthcoming August Marvel’s Avengers Expansion: Black Panther – War for Wakanda.
