Chapter 1 - Excalibur

"Rogue and Gambit thought they were out for a quiet date. Dinner, a movie, that kind of thing. But S.H.I.E.L.D. is going to have to cut their dessert short, because there are Sentinels on the move."

This is the first and earliest Heroic Battle that can be encountered by players in the game. Prior to the October 15, 2013 update, Prime Sentinels in this battle never changed to other classes using their abilities, rendering Rogue's Effect BG 2 GreenEffect Icon 092 Absorb Class only obtaining Effect BG 2 GreenEffect Icon 095 Ubiquitous Power in this fight. Since the update, they now change their class during their first turn, allowing Rogue more versatility; thanks to her battle-exclusive passive buff Effect BG 1 GreenEffect Icon 092 Rogue Protocol, Rogue is also able to absorb more than one class power, if the Sentinel she is using Absorb Power on has had the other Sentinel transfer it's class bonus.
The battle is actually pretty easy, if Gambit is at least at level 9: using Royal Flush will in fact remove the Sentinels' buffs and deal the useful Effect BG 1 RedEffect Icon 024 Wide-Open and Effect BG 1 RedEffect Icon 046 Fumbling, which will make Rogue more lethal. If not, Gambit should accumulate as many stacks of Effect BG 1 GreenEffect Icon 103 Kinetic Charge possible, and use Ace of Spades to lower their defense, allowing Rogue to deal more damage.

Note: if you're using Rogue's Horseman of Famine alt, dialogues will be different.

Mission 2 - Trans-Atlantic

Heroic Battle

"Sabretooth is in London. He's probably on Brotherhood business, but he's moving independently of the main Brotherhood and Hellfire Club forces. We've got Logan tracking him down..there ought to be fireworks pretty soon."

This Heroic Battle is unique in that damaging Sabretooth for at least 50% of his health will end the wave and begin the next with a different combat background. Sabretooth cannot be completely defeated in the first two waves and can only be defeated at the third and final Wave; aside from the combat background changes, Wolverine gains Effect BG 1 GreenEffect Icon 063 Feral Instinct whenever he defeats Sabretooth in a wave, stacking for up to two times. Sabretooth gains Effect BG 1 GreenEffect Icon 056 Healing Factor in the second wave, and then gains Effect BG 1 GreenEffect Icon 001 Frenzy at the final wave, similar to what his passive effects were on Chapter 4 - Mission 6 of Season 1.
This battle is pretty easy, since Sabretooth's damage output is not very high and Wolverine's Effect BG 3 BlueEffect Icon 056 Healing Factor is more than enough to let him live. The best thing to do is to keep as many stacks of Effect BG 1 RedEffect Icon 002 Bleeding as possible on Sabretooth, especially when he gains his Healing Factor. On the third wave things will be more difficult, but Wolverine's counter-attacks (more frequent if he's at low health) will probably defeat Sabretooth with ease.

Mission 3 - Sword in the Stone

Heroic Battle
Mystique Icon Mystique Infiltratoricon
Passive: None

"Mystique has cut off her very own son, Nightcrawler, on a patrol while he was tracking Brotherhood activity. He could bamf his way out, but there comes a time in a man's life when he's got to face his demons. Even if one of them is his mother."

For the first time in the game, Mystique can now copy other characters using her Shapeshift ability. In this battle she can Shapeshift to Cyclops and attack using Exploit Weakness, can shapeshift into Wolverine and attack using Deadly Claws and Savage Rend, can shapeshift into Beast and attack using The Jungle and A Farewell to Arms, and shapeshift into Emma Frost and attack using War Diamond. The best strategy is to spam Ambush, as it deals and exploits Effect BG 1 RedEffect Icon 080 Combo Setup with a 60% chance to follow-up, using Night Kick every time it's possible to stun the enemy; obviously, Nightcrawler's Scrapper Swashbuckler outfit will give him a great advantage. The battle won't be a problem anyway, unless Mystica's Deadly Claws hit Nightcrawler, dealing him two stacks of Effect BG 1 RedEffect Icon 002 Bleeding with Effect BG 1 RedEffect Icon 023 Ravaged.

Mission 4 - Vulture, MP

Heroic Battle
Safety Officer Icon Bioethicist Blastericon

"Spider-Woman was keeping an eye on some of the Hellfire Club locations we've already pacified. Who did she run across rebuilding one of them into an A.I.M. lab? Why, M.O.D.O.K.. Jessica's never liked A.I.M.. She likes M.O.D.O.K. even less."

Extremely difficult before Spider-Woman's update, this heroic battle is now pretty medium difficult. Due to the Bioethicist's Effect BG 1 RedEffect Icon 064 Budget Airfilters, Spider-Woman can manipulate these enemies into healing and protecting her by using Fear Pheromones or Seduction Pheromones; M.O.D.O.K. also has a new Heroic Battle-exclusive passive effect called Effect BG 1 RedEffect Icon 157 Organic Machine Interface that makes him vulnerable to bio-electric attacks. Because of this, Spider-Woman can use her Venom Blast in order for M.O.D.O.K. to stop his Doomsday Clock Countdown and force him to waste a turn into resetting his countdown back to Effect BG 1 GreenEffect Icon 005 Doomsday Clock: 3. The first action to do should be using Seduction Pheromones on M.O.D.O.K., then Fear Pheromones on all enemies and after that spamming Venom Blast on the main boss, letting the Bioethicists alive (as long as Spider-Woman's Effect BG 3 BlueEffect Icon 169 Vengeance passive counterattack will allow this) to have a free "healing source" when needed.

Mission 5 - God Save the Queen

Heroic Battle
Thor-B 1 Icon Thor Bruisericon
Passive: Effect BG 3 BlueEffect Icon 140

"Hercules is a man--well, demigod--of simple tastes. He likes to eat, he likes to drink, he likes to test his strength. That means every so often, he starts looking for a fight. When he's feeling fighty and Thor is around, you get a truly epic struggle between demigod and Thunder God."

This battle marks the second time Thor becomes an enemy, and the first in Story Mission to battle against a Hero (not counting the Villains turned Heroes).

This is an easy Heroic Battle. The battle begins with a Heroic Battle-exclusive Passive called Effect BG 1 BlueEffect Icon 022 Tough God applied to both Hercules and Thor that applies Effect BG 1 GreenEffect Icon 011 Hit Me! to the character that Rests or Recharges, that eventually leads into granting Effect BG 1 RedEffect Icon 127 Unsporting to the character that does a non-offensive action while their enemy has Hit Me! in effect. The battle may require proper timing on the use of abilities, including Recharge, in order to succeed: simply be sure to not be out of Stamina when Thor recharges, and it'll be fine.

"The U-Foes are protecting a base built into this location underneath Central Park. Cable and Deadpool were arguing about the best caliber of ammunition for a weapon that hasn't been invented yet, and happened to run across them. Dear Reader, guess what happened next?"

Note: Cable should at least be at level 9 to have a chance to win this battle. It doesn't matter Deadpool's level.

The battle begins with Ironclad as the first wave. Ironclad will use Punch twice on Deadpool. The enemy is considerably weak compared to his other appearances: despite having two stacks of Effect BG 2 GreenEffect Icon 077 Enraged, he can be defeated in under a few hits by either Cable or Deadpool.

The next wave with the remaining U-Foes members starts with a twist, as Deadpool begins the round using Redesign Encounter. This turns him into the opposing side and replaces Vector in battle, but retaining Vector's turn order icon, his Tactician class, and Deadpool's Passive effects, along with gaining a new Heroic Battle-exclusive effect called Effect BG 1 GreenEffect Icon 081 Lover-boy in which he protects Cable and Vapor from all single target attacks. Unfortunately, Deadpool will attack Cable in each of his turns... and with the correct attack sequence, which will sure kill Cable in a few turns.

This battle will then be a matter of time and strategy: if you kill Deadpool first you'll be open against X-Ray and Vapor attacks; if you kill them first, the Merc-With-A-Mouth will ravage you. Start giving yourself an extra turn with Temporal Shift, then use Askani Arts on Deadpool: switch then to Overdrive mode and attack him with Techno-Organic Rampage, which will be followed by Psionic Spikes (note that Vapor and X-Ray will "help" you killing Deadpool). On the second turn, switch to Control mode and attack the Merc with a double Plasma Rifle (thanks to the Askani Arts' Effect BG 1 RedEffect Icon 017 Flanked effect), which will probably kill him: focus your attention then on the other two enemies, using Temporal Shift whenever possible, to easily win the fight. If you want, you could try using Telekinetic Slam to Effect BG 1 RedEffect Icon 010 Stun the enemy party.
