In addition to the Stark-Enhanced Spider-Man suit from Spider-Man: Homecoming, Marvel Contest of Champions is adding two of the wall-crawler’s most iconic foes this month in Green Goblin (available now) and Doctor Octopus (available August 17th).
Cunning businessman Norman Osborn was rarely satisfied with the success lawful ventures provided. Intending to gain the strength to beat Spider-Man, Norman subjected himself to an experimental serum, which proved terrifyingly successful, granting Norman vastly greater faculties but at the cost of his sanity. Unhinged and armed with Oscorp’s most advanced weaponry, the Green Goblin now rains fear down upon Spider-Man, and his perceived enemies.
Special 1: Manic Assault – Tossing down a flash bomb, the Green Goblin fires off a hasty barrage of electrical blasts then chucks a pumpkin bomb for good measure.
· Laser Blasts: 40% chance to Power Drain.
· Pumpkin Bomb: 90% chance to inflict Weakness
Special 2: Oscorp Offensive – A strike from the glider, a pumpkin bomb to the face and a blast from the afterburner leaves Norman’s foe in a terrible state.
· Afterburner: 100% chance to Incinerate.
· Pumpkin Bomb: 85% chance to Poison.
Special 3: Goblin King’s Blitz – Norman takes to the skies and blasts his opponent with every pumpkin bomb he can pull from his bag of tricks. Enjoy!
· Pumpkin Bombs: 40% chance to inflict Power Drain, Weakness, Incinerate and Poison.
Signature Ability: Oscorp Weaponry – Green Goblin gains access to the Super Bomb that allows him to activate his entire Bag of Tricks at once.
· 15-34% chance per bar of Power to activate a Super Bomb which causes all Bag of Tricks effects to trigger instead of the standard Pumpkin Bomb effect; however, the Special 3 attack still has a chance to trigger both Super Bomb and Pumpkin Bomb effects.
Otto Octavius came from a troubled home. Determined not to follow in his abusive father’s footsteps, Otto devoted himself to his studies. Despite years of derision from his peers, he became a nuclear physicist. But after he had to have the mechanical arms he designed and built surgically removed following an accident Otto finally had enough. Assuming the derogatory name his co-coworkers had coined for him, Otto began a life of crime as Doctor Octopus.
Special 1 – Thesis
Doc Ock has a theory, that he’s better than you are. If you don’t believe him he’ll be happy to demonstrate that fact for you.
Special 2 – Experiment
Like any good scientist, Doc Ock will need to put his hypothesis to the test, much to the detriment of his test subjects.
Special 3 – Proof
After much careful study and experimentation, Doc Ock can now mathematically prove that your defeat is inevitable.
Doctor Octopus’s extensive academic background leads his research to sometimes entirely unexpected breakthroughs.
