The special edition uniforms reflect the look and characteristics of their movie counterparts, and also trigger new “Avengers Assemble” team abilities.
The “Avengers Assemble” rewards any team with a movie-uniformed Avenger with the status “Coordinated Attack,” which triggers a follow-up attack whenever a movie-uniformed Avenger attacks the enemy.

The Black Widow and Hawkeye uniforms are live in the game now, while the additional movie-themed uniforms will debut in the coming days.
