Marvel Avengers Alliance: Spec Ops 12 Launches

Spec Ops 12 just started today in Marvel Avengers Alliance. The hero up for grabs this time is Ares the God of War. He has some pretty brutal abilities just as preventing healing and resurrection effects as well as a "Avengers Assemble"-type ability-buff called "War Never Changes."

Here are the full patch notes and don't forget to actually start the first mission before grabbing your Isos or they'll go to waste:

SpecOp 12 - Dark Reign

Briefing - A massive industrial accident has caused the World Security Council to consider overruling S.H.I.E.L.D.'s defense mandate. Put simply: they're 

trying to push us out, and they're using teams of villains to do it. Crazy? Yes. Effective? Not if we have anything to say about it.

Spec Op 12 Reward Hero: Ares

Bio – As the Olympian God of War, Ares is one of the most brutal and fearsome warriors of all time. He is a genius-level military tactician and a master of all weaponry, both ancient and modern. Though his half-brother Hercules may be stronger, Ares is meaner, and he isn't shy about demonstrating it.
