Kid Ultra started off as a weaponless machine armed with cartoon and comics knowledge designed to entertain children. Since that's pretty much useless in a fight, Nova and Kleese outfitted him with actual weapons, transforming him from a really good makebeliever to an actual comic book style hero.

Battleborn: "Attikus and the Thrall Rebellion" DLC ImpressionsTally Callahan

“Attikus and the Thrall Rebellion,” the first Story Operation for Battleborn , released late last week, bringing more PvE content to the game. This DLC is both the first premium as well as first PvE-focused DLC released for the game, and I think fans of the game will feel it's been worth the wait. Story Ops can be attempted with ...

According to 2K, all of the operations that will be released over the next few months will allow players to play through them over and over again as "the story, enemies, and objectives will change, increasing the difficulty but also the rewarded loot." They don't go any further into what that means exactly though if it holds up that would certainly bring some welcome replayability to the co-op side of things. Playing the operation will also be the only way to earn the new skins and taunts that are a part of each piece of DLC.

The update actually launched yesterday, so if you've ducked your head into the game since then you've already noticed this addition. The in-game marketplace will let you buy "Platinum" using your real-world money. That Platinum, in turn, can be spent to buy new skins for all 26 of the game's characters, and taunts for a smaller subset (Ghalt, Oscar Mike, Benedict, Shayne & Aurox, El Dragon, Whiskey Foxtrot, Kleese, and Alani). More taunts for other characters will be added as time goes on, along with the ability to buy the DLC packs (whenever they get released).

Aside from the character art and a brief blurb, not much else is known about Pendles. He apparently hails from the same planet, Akopos, as Alani and he likes to use kama. Also, assuming you didn't pick up the game's Season Pass, you'll unlock Pendles by spending 47,500 in-game credits, just like Alani.

We also take on Mission 3, and while not quite as dominating, we do a pretty solid job of wrapping that up. Best of all with our play is we earned double XP thanks to the current ongoing event which wraps up on the 25th of May.

If you're on the PlayStation 4 and participated in the Open Beta last month, you will also get access to Alani on the 24th if you want. You see, you'll be getting a free hero key that you can use any way you want. If you want to use it to unlock Alani, then you can do so. If you want to use it to unlock some other character, you can do that instead.
