I'm thinking of just letting heal sit at 3 and go all in on offense on 5r 5g. I thought about building a 'safe' character but then I realized if I want one I got about 5 other characters that are functionally the same.
Berserker Rage and Rampage the other team into oblivion.
Damn, the more I read, the more I'm confused.
Yellow at 5 is really mandatory for me... but I can't decide between red and green.
The thought of giving the enemy team 6 attack tiles does not excite me one bit. Red is so costly on the other hand... it'd better be a one hit KO move.
Sitting at 3/3/3 with 3 more covers in the waiting... I'll have to make a decision soon
My guess is that his ability at level 4 will be inferior to other red abilities. If not inferior to red abilities we currently have, then to abilities of new heroes.
Going 3/5/5, planning on putting him alongside GSBW and Loki, so it's obvious who will be getting the greens (unless I have enough black for shenanigans). The red damage is obscene in the right team composition, whereas the green damage doesn't ever go up (and is still respectable for 9 green, sheesh). Only difference is 2 strike tiles (or 2 strike and 2 protect, if you're saving up for Loki). In either case, you're going to be very hard to kill.
Other option for shenanigans is Loki/Patch/Iron Man Mk40 - get 12 yellow, blast your recharge, use the red you just acquired to instant-kill someone on their team now that IM40 isn't probably taking up red. I still prefer the former team, but truthfully they're somewhat interchangeable playstyles (referring to swapping IM40 with GSBW) - one ramps via yellow into slam dunking, the other is more gradual with Patch eating up all the hits, before violently exploding. I don't like having an unused color though, so I think I'd rather go with the IM40 build.
Actually the differnce is 3 strike tiles. Lvl 3 gives 3, 4 gives 4 and 5 gives 6. Also, with the IM40 team, you really think you'll be using blue? I agree the synergy is great, but you said you like to be able to use all colours.
