The Tachyon Anomaly event for the beleaguered Marvel’s Avengers is now live and will run through May 3. The event was revealed roughly one month ago during the Square Enix Presents event and features the ability to form a team comprising of more than one of the same hero.
You’ll be able to play with two Black Widows, or three Thors, or even just four Iron Mans (Men?) The event follows with AIM’s time tampering which has produced Tachyon anomalies. Therefore, several different Avengers from different timelines will have to work together to take out the various threats presented.
Of course, this wouldn’t be an event without rewards,
“During the two weeks of the event, players that complete any Temporal Assault missions will receive an exclusive animated Temporal Assault Nameplate usable with any Super Hero as a reward. Completing additional Temporal Assault missions rewards players with Priority Set pieces for high-level Heroes.”

The team had confirmed his return via Twitter
While the game has seen a recent uptick in players, it’s still quite a ways off from its all time peak of 28,145 players according to Steam Charts.
