What does on reveal do in Marvel Snap?

On Reveal abilities are activated immediately once a character is put into play. A specific example of this is the Medusa card, which is one of the earliest characters players get when starting out in Marvel Snap.

Medusa starts out with only a power level of 2 but her On Reveal ability gives her an additional +2 power when placed in the middle location. If she is a part of your deck, you’ll almost always want to place her in the central area of the playing field in order to maximize her abilities.

A group of heroes with similar On Reveal abilities are the Guardians of the Galaxy. Star-Lord, Drax, Rocket, Groot, and Gamora all have nearly identical skills wherein if the opponent plays a card in the same location that one of them is played in, the Guardians gain a certain amount of power. Gamora is the strongest out of the group and has the highest power gain at +5. She is then followed by Drax with +4 power, Star-Lord and Groot with +3, and, finally, Rocket with +2.

Another particularly popular On Reveal hero is Odin, as his skill allows your other characters to reactivate their On Reveal abilities again. If you’re looking to create a deck focused on these types of characters, Odin is always a recommendable inclusion so you can get the most out of your cards.
