    4* - Ant-Man, Star-Lord, The Thing, Venom

    Hmm, I should've champed SL before Iceman after all. Well, now it's too late.

    No, you made the right choice. A 270 Iceman outclasses a buffed SL. At least, I would hit any team with SL quicker than I'd hit one with Iceman.

    Are there reports of people completing IW DDQ without yellow? Mine is 0/3/1 and i don't know if it's worth putting Iso to level her from 90 to 111.

    I don't think you stand a chance without her yellow. She's not going to have enough health to outrun her opponent regardless of who it is without yellow, even if the opponent is undercovered and level 222, unless you fill the entire board with blue protect tiles. Save your ISO, imo.

    Just got my first yellow after hitting pve progression. Now at 1/3/1. Worth leveling i guess.

    Depends. You could be fine with a quick invisibility and some match damage boosts (even the two-color ones) to shorten the length of the fight.

    I beat it on my alt-account with just the yellow cover level 70, but I might have been using full match damage boosts.

    I wouldn't level much past 94. I leveled mine to 111 for the first run and I regret taking her so high. most of the recent characters I've been having luck at 94 and many had success with her at level 70. her fight is quite the puzzle though with the locked tiles and blue matches.

    Got her to 104 after completing the DDQ, should be enough. If the match turns out to be too hard i supose i can spare 5k to bring her to 115.

    Will there be an XFW one soon, however?

    Yep. One is still planned for this month.

    Hi David,

    Is this still the case. I've seen posts stating Invisible Woman is next in line unless Wolverine is the last of the month?

    Are you able to share if there is going to be a Wolverine buff? icon_e_wink.gif

    According to the first post, Invisible Woman is indeed next on May 22nd, so I guess that means Wolverine is up after her on May 27th...

    Forgive me if this info is located elsewhere, but do we know if Flap and IMHB will be the 4* rewards again for the next run of CW? Those Flap covers are about to expire soon and he might be worth the champion treatment if he will be rewarded again

    Conversely, can we confirm that Flap and IMHB will NOT be the 4* reward this time around? Cause that helps too, even if we don't know which 4s will be rewarded

    I Believe it was implied the rewards might be different the second time, but not confirmed.

    Hi-Fi was at the con in L.A. with others from D3 today, so don't expect anything until Monday at the earliest. Honestly, if the D3 staff spends all weekend working the con, give them Monday to recover and hope for info on Tuesday.

    Huh. They went to a con? I could've made plans to go since I'm kinda close by. If only there were some way of informing us of these things. Maybe in a few years some invention will be made that allows for easier communication.

    It was posted right here on the forum.
    D3 is at the Magic: The Gathering Grand Prix Los Angeles convention. So nothing to do with Marvel Puzzle Quest -- D3 is the publisher for both MPQ and M:tGPQ, with Hi-Fi as the the overall community manager so it would make sense he would be going.
