Super Hero Squad Online Adds New Sidekick Abilities, Badges

Tired of your sidekicks not pulling their own weight in “Super Hero Squad Online?” It shouldn’t be that hard, right, considering that they’re all pretty tiny.

Nevertheless, sidekicks can do more. And now they will do more thanks to the new sidekick abilities added during the latest update to “Super Hero Squad Online.” Via the wonder of crafting, you can now create new badges for Mini Avengers Iron Man, Mini Iron Patriot, the Mummy, Gamma Pigeon and more.

Of course if your heroes can do more on their own, maybe they wouldn’t even need sidekicks except to admire how cute they are. The update covers those bases too, thanks to new badges for heroes like Hawkeye, Wonder Man, Vision and “Ms. Don’t Call Me Spider-Woman” herself, Arachne.

Last but certainly not least is the matter of free stuff. Entering the code “LMNTLSPRKS” allows you to claim 10 free Elemental Flames, the better for actually getting somewhere toward creating the new badges we just talked about.

So what are you waiting for? Tell your sidekick to get a move on, go Hero Up and get to crafting.
