Game Update 9, Heroes and Villains from all walks of life will have

for what you're lacking, as long you stay together.
Remember, though, this is a Team Buff. You will need to stay together and work together to take advantage.
Get ready! Game Update 9: Assemble for Battle is coming soon to a Brainiac-infested city near you.
