Marvel Heroes Online players have a new game experience thanks to the arrival of 'one-shots'. According to the dev team, one-shots are designed to give players a snapshot of the larger Marvel Universe and can take place both within and outside of the larger story.
One-Shots are not entire chapters in the story, but are rather small snap-shots of the Marvel Heroes Universe. They allow for the inclusion of new super villains, new motion comics, and new types of enemies who otherwise may not be added to the main storyline for some time.
The concept comes from Marvel's "One-Shot" comics, which are typically isolated stories that may or not play a major role in the larger Marvel Universe.
The first One-Shot for Marvel Heroes focuses on Man-Ape and his attempt to overthrow Black Panther as the king of Wakanda. Man-Ape plans to take over one of Wakanda's main Vibranium mines in order to use its resources to defeat the Wakandan people. Since the Vibranuim mines are heavily guarded, Man-Ape has called in help from other villains -- Wizard and Spencer Smythe, in addition to the warriors of the White Gorilla Tribe.
These other villains have agreed to work with Man-Ape in order to receive a cache of Vibranium; the Wizard for his advanced weaponry and Smythe for his new Spider Slayers.
