Will You Ever Not Fall For That? (Updated - Trailer)
The Gods have landed. Enter the realm of the golden halls and test your wits against the greatest trickster in the history of man and God. Loki, the wolfchild*, has come out to play. Entering the fray in typical, pompous style with a flair and flick of the luscious, male model hair we all know and love. The timing of this latest arrival to the Marvel Heroes roster is clearly, and unashamedly, intended to capitalise on the arrival of Thor: The Dark World in cinema screens. But then, what else would you expect from dear old Loki Laufeyson? Oh yeah, the update also includes a bunch of Asgard locations (details below) but who cares about them? Loki is the real star.
Marvel Heroes Game Update 2.0 - Asgard will feature:

*Wolfchild is an old Norse (Viking) term for a child taken when you slay their Father. It was actually a title of great honour at the time. After all, think about it. What is the more noble, honourable thing to do? Leave the child alone to die, or take responsibility for them as a mark of respect to a worthy foe? The more you know eh?
