Marvel Avengers Alliance: PVP Season 7 Launched. Up for Grabs: Shatterstar!

Marvel Avengers Alliance PVP Season 7 just kicked off. Up for grabs this time is Shatterstar, a Scrapper Hero that can pierce through shields and prevent new ones.

More obtainable is the SHIELD Slugger which can causes a 3-round debuff that can randomly stun similar to Deadpool's ability.

Here's a look at Shatterstar:

Shatterstar is a heavy damage dealer that works well against Dr. Strange and to a lesser extent against protecting Agents. Not sure how useful he'll be since Dr. Strange shields are random so you can't actually predict how much damage you'll deal beforehand. Plus,while he does more damage against protecting heroes, he doesn't actually stop them from protecting unless he manages to KO them.

Blade Maelstrom is a nice setup for a catastrophic All-Enemies attack.
