MSF: Sinister Six

Several MSF content creators have released the Sinister 6 team’s rework notes, even though it has  been officially released yet.

In Marvel Strike Force (MSF) you can formulate teams of well-renowned Marvel heroes and villains to slay enemies who are attempting to take control of the Marvel Universe.

The game’s developer, Scopely, regularly updates the game to ensure that players have the best gaming experience.

Sinister Six

In addition to fixing bugs, releasing new content and adding new characters to MSF, Scopely occasionally reworks characters that they have previously launched in MSF to prepare them for upcoming events, game modes and other content.

Although MSF is yet to make the official announcement, several MSF content creators have revealed that the Sinister Six team is being expanded and some characters are being reworked.

That being said, MSF is likely to release the official blog post about Sinister 6 in the near future.

Keep in mind that there are only a few characters with the Sinister 6 trait, including Doctor Octopus, Electro, Green Goblin and Mysterious. Additionally, Shocker, Swarm and Vulture also have the Sinister 6 trait.

At the time of writing, it seems like only Rhino, Mysterio, Electro, Vulture, Shocker and Doctor Octopus are being revamped.

This is likely because Swarm and Green Goblin were recently revamped, so is not necessary for MSF to rework them again for the Sinister 6 team.

Revamping a character means that MSF is changing the character’s abilities entirely.

Additionally, the developers are adjusting the characters’ statistics to prepare them for upcoming events and activities that you can complete with the Sinister 6 team.
