Requirements for Legendary Heroes

Legendary Heroes are the trademark of Marvel Strike Force. They can be farmed in specific Events lasting up to a couple of days, once every 3 months or even more. The mechanics make them extremely valuable and rare even though the actual strength and importance of some of them are not matched with the difficulty of their unlocking.

MSF game concept emphasizes new Heroes over old ones, making older heroes useless at some point after which Scopely always performs slight rebalance increasing the importance of older heroes.

The problem is that all legendary Heroes are the same as they were in creation. That is why the importance of some Legendary Heroes is now lower than the importance of average non-legendary newer hero.

For example, Magneto was META back in the days, while now it is questionable if he should be improved at all considering other priorities. Having all this in mind we will list all requirements for all Legendary heroes at this moment. We will start with the oldest Legendary and finish with the most recent.
