Known Issues
• Damage dealt by Nova's power Rocket Man is unaffected by Strike and Protect tiles. This will be addressed in R94.
• There is a bug in the airborne functionality that shows an incorrect amount of turns being airborne. The amount of turns being airborne is one less than what is stated. As a result, Nova's power Rocket Man shows the enemy being airborne for three turns but it is actually only two turns, which is the intended amount. We are still investigating a fix this to issue.
• Heroes will return from being airborne immediately on that player's next turn if there is only one hero left on that player's team. This will be addressed in R95.
• The player will see the enemy Nova's Rocket Man power go off when the enemy Nova's power Taking Off changes to Rocket Man. This will be addressed in R94.
• Nova's power Rocket Man can be used to send an invisible enemy airborne if they are the last hero on that players team. This will be addressed in R95
• Airborne minions still generate AP for their team. This will be addressed in R94.

We apologize for the bugs and will fix them as soon as possible.

UPDATE: R94 should have the above issues addressed, if you experience issues after updating please let us know!

    Finally a redflag.png yellowflag.png blackflag.png in 4* territory.

    Bring on Nova

    Hmph, if this fits the "Like Father, Like Son" clue, I'd chalk it up to Cable, being the Same colors at 3* Scott, but the powers don't fit him.

    What a cheap/fast character icon_eek.gif color me intrigued.

    And speaking of colors - as post2 above said, thank you Devs for trying to vary the color combinations in 4*-land on a lot of recent characters!

    I think we're very close to building out the last member of this team...

    Maybe Blackheart? Wasn't it hinted Mephisto had more up his sleeve at the end of the Chulk mini story arc?

    1) Like father like son
    2) The colours match Old Man Logan

    4* Daken confirmed

    I vote Captain Beefheart!

    It fits the make strike tiles -> destroy strike tiles for damage M.O. of Daken. Not too sure about the stun, though. Anyone else notice it says "stuns for a couple rounds then damages"?

    Could be a reverse fastball special.


    Also, since this character is so fast and cheap, shouldn't the hint have been 'like your mom' instead? icon_mrgreen.gif
  • Now, the question is...

    ...are there any other characters who make Black strike tiles?

    The only one I can think of is Bullseye, and considering it requires both some luck and for him to kill somebody, not exactly the most reliable way to do it.
  • Der_LexDer_Lex Age Unconfirmed Posts: 1,035 Chairperson of the Boards
    Old Man Logan makes black strike tiles.

    Captain Marvel too, but unfortunately only for the other team. Which makes this new character a very nice counter to her, especially with the stun.

    4* Daken confirmed

    If it is Daken or not this 4* will work with OML as well as X-23. Strike tiles everywhere!!!

    I am guessing that with the character thematically is supposed to be fast with these cheap moves. Add in the acceleration factor (make strike tiles, and once you have enough strike tiles, i.e. build up enough momentum, explode into the enemy) and it really seems like a character that Quicksilver should've been. Loving the chance to have a new color combo finally in 4 star land. We finally have a character that can be used with JG or IM and have a rainbow. The usefulness of this character will be dependent on his strike tile power levels and the damage he can dish out. Considering the fact this character is fast, and the like father like son hint, I am going with young Nova like the others. I can't imagine they would release another Daken, simply because I can't think of another Daken variant.

    Everyone is saying 4* Daken, but I can't think of another Daken costume to reinforced that claim (Ok, MAYBE Daken Horseman of Death, but that's a stretch really.)
  • SolidQSolidQ Posts: 237 Tile Toppler
    It's Nova(Sam Alexander) 100%
  • DwarfsteelDwarfsteel Age Unconfirmed Posts: 55 Match Maker
    Yes, as others and myself have said here and elsewhere, Nova (Sam Alexander) is the most likely candidate. His father was a Nova Centurion and he ties in with the other All-new, All-Different Avengers the most recent being Miles Morales.

    As much as everyone seems to think this is Nova, the powerset sounds a lot more like Green Goblin.

    Fingers crossed for Skaar or Phobos.
