Many Marvel Strike Force players remember the short moment when Sinister Six was a formidable team. With the upcoming updates and new additions to the roster, that time may be upon us once again.

The official Marvel Strike Force blog has confirmed that the game will receive a brand new team based on Sinister Six: the Superior Six. Likewise, the original Sinister Six members might get powerful upgrades in the near future.

The info we’re working on initially came from the Marvel Strike Force Discord channel. Now, it’s been confirmed on the main website of the game, so the news is confirmed as valid. Let’s see what the new Superior Six characters might look like.

We have a nifty little article on how to get Sinister Six in Marvel Strike Force, so if you haven’t had a chance to read it yet, make sure you do so after finishing our Superior Six piece!

The new Superior Six team will consist of four new characters:

  • Green Goblin (Classic)
  • Kraven the Hunter
  • Lizard
  • Spider Slayer

The fifth member of the team is Doctor Octopus, who has been upgraded, among other things, with a Superior Six tag. For that reason, we’ll also review Doc Oc here.

Green Goblin (Classic)


  • Villain

  • Tech

Green Goblin (Classic) is the good, old glider-riding villain that we know and love from so many Marvel media. He has various boosts for Cosmic Crucible offense, making him a potential new MVP for this game mode.

It’s also worth mentioning that the Classic Green Goblin gains Charged and, like many recent Legendaries, can be Awakened to gain special traits. In basic mode, his attacks can’t be counterattacked. Additionally, Special and Ultimate abilities can’t be dodged either, while the Special also can’t be blocked.

Let’s look at the Classic Green Goblin’s abilities.

A long-awaited addition to Marvel Strike Force, Kraven the Hunter rolls out as a massive damage dealer for the Superior Six team.

As the Protector for the Superior Six team, Lizard can keep the heavy hitters alive for longer while messing with enemy buffs and ally debuffs. He also gains specific advantages against Spider-Verse enemies.

Lizard’s Special is of note as it inflicts an additional Ability Block on Spider-Verse Hero and Support enemies. This attack has the extra advantage of being Unavoidable. Let’s go into Lizard’s ability breakdown further:

In the comics, Spider-Slayer isn’t a core member of the Sinister Six. Instead, it’s a robot designed to fight Spider-Man. According to preliminary images, the version we might get in Marvel Strike Force is the Mark V model, interestingly built in part by J. Jonas Jameson.

Spider-Man lore aside, the in-game Spider-Slayer contributes to the Ultimate Six team in terms of damage buffs. The robot also has a small advantage in Cosmic Crucible. His Basic and Special can’t be dodged, while the Ultimate is Unavoidable. Here’s the rest of Spider-Slayer’s abilities:

Basic (Rock’em, Saw’em)100% Piercing damage to primary target;
Grant Offense Up to the highest Damage Sinister Six ally, unless they already have Offense Up

Doctor Octopus


  • Villain
  • City
  • Tech
  • Support
  • Spider-Verse
  • Superior Six
  • Sinister Six
  • Legendary

Finally, we get to the Legendary Sinister Six member who’s been a part of Marvel Strike Force for a long time. As a Support character, Doctor Octopus focuses on the enemy’s negative effects. He also grants Charged to allies, which made him a dangerous foe before, placing him high in MSF character tier lists. As a Superior Six member, he represents an even greater danger.

The upgraded Doc Oc receives a boost in Alliance War and Cosmic Crucible. He also boasts Basic and Ultimate attacks that can’t be dodged, while his ultimate can’t be counterattacked either. Here’s a full ability overview:
