Featured Franchise Heroes will have new Patch Levels, Patch Power, and Patch Talents to give them significant combat advantages.  

Franchise Trials are seasonal Trials and are the main source of resources to get the featured Heroes what they need to be Patched.  Each Season, you’re challenged to defeat waves of enemies using only Heroes from specific Featured Franchises. Each new Season will Feature several new Franchises. Use the new Franchise Filter to focus on and invest in these Heroes to earn the greatest rewards.

When clearing lower Stage Franchise Trials, you can gather Badge Bits to help you Promote your featured Heroes faster. When clearing higher Stage Franchise Trials, you can also collect a potent new resource called Patch Essence! Heroes from Featured Franchises become Patchable, and Patch Essence enables you to empower your Patchable Heroes.
