"Engage in a classic Marvel encounter!"
— Heroic Battle
A Heroic Battle is a type of encounter involving a story-based battle with specific Heroes. The Agent does not fight with the heroes in this combat, marking the first time that the Agent is not used in combat. Heroic Battles was introduced alongside Incursion on Story: Season 2.
Heroic Battles can be found as an orange version of the Team page's Icon on the current Mission's Map. It costs 10 Energy to start a Heroic Battle. Players cannot initiate a Heroic Battle without having the required hero or heroes recruited. Heroic Battles are said to be challenging for low-level Heroes, as certain Hero Abilities help greatly in succeeding throughout the battle.
Heroic Battles have special dialogues with the involved characters before and after a combat. Combats in Heroic Battles have unique differing mechanics and some Heroic Battles grant new and old exclusive Passive Effects for the characters. As Heroic Battles do not have the Agent in any of the fights, Heroes in this battle do not have access to the Agent's Inventory and Distress Calls. Heroic Battles are not necessarily required to be finished in order to unlock the Epic Boss battle in the Mission, but can be used to finish Deploy Missions faster.
List of Rewards
If players are successful from a Heroic Battle, players have a chance to get a reward in the form of a roulette. The rewards range from random consumable Supplies, Isotope-8, Character Restricted Empowered iso and Command Points. There are also chances for specific Gears, from Random Deploy Gear to Limited Edition Spec Ops Gear.

- Random Store and Premium Supplies (Tier and kind of Supply depends on the Agent's Level)
