I recently champed Okoye (I know, she's been around for some time but RNG) and I'm trying out her Wakanda forever TU enhanced damage with other heroes. I noticed that Peggy was boosted and she is my highest levelled 4* and has solid gear. Slowing down enemies, a relatively cheap red that hits like a truck. Team up with 5* Strange and watch the goons melt like butter.
Kitty, Samurai Daken and Polaris are my newest favourite Apocalypse counter. Daken isn’t even fully covered yet. Sure, they’re not the fastest, but their powers counter Apocalypse’s quite effectively.
My 5* Daken is still modest. But Kitty, Polaris, R4G is a very strong team.
I've been "out of the loop somewhat" for the last couple years so I don't have anything near whatever the current meta is, but I did manage to make it to the 5* tier before dialing down my play. My current favorite team is Okoye, Half-Thor, and Matt Murdock. I find this to be a beautiful team with a powerful and deceptively deep synergy that provides a lot of options. 1) Half-Thor gives great board-shake and each of the colors he batteries is goes towards at least one top tier power of either his own or one of his team-mates. Fortunately the only color Thor tanks on this team is green, which you never have to match due to the generating power of Thor's passive. 2) Okoye is a powerhouse and easily the best support person in the game imho. Conveniently she tanks red away from half-Thor which means that it's generally pretty easy to keep him hidden from harm's way while powering the team. Thanks to Thor she gets a steady stream of yellow which 1) replenishes her health and 2) provides a source of team-up tiles each of which magnifies everyone's powers. Her red is also a great single-target nuke that can eliminate a chosen row from the board. 3) In terms of fun factor Matt Murdock is probably my favorite player in the game. On his own he's mildly impressive but teamed up with Okoye he absolutely murders people. His green power is a lot of fun-- especially as you can stack them. As a bonus his purple provides nice stun reverses a few enemy special tiles to hero strike tiles. I have animations on and sometimes I purposely match away his green countdown time just to watch him "thwap pow" someone into oblivion. Anyway I know this probably isn't a very current team but it's a lot of fun. I'm able to knock off at least one round of every SCL 10 "challenge node" I've tried.
