    The "stop opponent from healing" could be someone that uses a toxin or poison. Wasn't there a horseman that did that with wing knives or something? And isn't that character in the new Xmen Apocalypse movie?

    Archangel could shoot his "razor feathers" that had poison in them, so that could be him. I hope the countdown tile to self damage is something like, "Archangel soars overhead, surveying the battlefield for his team. At the end of this countdown, Archangel flies into a wall."

    I'm getting a chuckle picturing an animation for that ability...

    If it stops OML from healing and destroys his strike tiles, that would be a great person to have on your team.

    Seems like another attempt to counter OML (who else has true healing, or healing of any sort, in the endgame space? X-23?)

    Sadly, I don't know if this will work. 12ap is awfully pricey to have real use (especially if the special tile is a CD, instead of somethi g more permanent like an invis tile). If you have to save up that much ap just to negate true healing, then it seems like a better bet to just save up enough for an alpha strike.

    This may highlight a larger problem with the current game meta: specialists just aren't worth it. (see my thread in the general discussion board for a longer discussion of that topic.

    If I want to counter OML's healing for long enough to kill him with a 4*'s blueflag.png power, I'll use Iceman's for half the AP.

    The colors are for sure Hawkeye / Katie, but the self hurt thing would be ridiculous, no matter how they try and spin it. Unless this is referencing Clint committing suicide that one time........

    Doom should be a 5*, not a 4.

    Moon Knight is nuy loco, but I duct think those colors match, do they?

    Mystique, Angel, Nightcrawler, and Psylocke ARE NOT COMING SO STOP THINKING THAT THEY ARE. lol. That is not up for debate, anymore.

    3* Doom is a nightmare, I don't want to imagine what they would give him at 5*.

    Can the devs comment on whether Phoenix's From the Ashes counts as a healing power that would be negated?

    How much do you want to bet that they haven't thought of that?

    Pre-release ability precis:
      Damage 12 AP - Deal damage and create a special tile, while the tile is on board enemies cannot gain health.

      Damage/Special Tile - 8 AP - Deal damage and create a countdown tile that when expired will damage this hero.

      Damage 10 AP - Creates special tiles and removes friendly strike tiles.

      12 blueflag.png is WAY too expensive in order for that power to be useful. By the time this character accumulates 12 blueflag.png OML has match-damaged them to death.

      Can't call this one at all, I just really hope it's a new character and not a rehash

      Marvel THWHIP confirmed today this will be Kate Bishop! The self hurt ability? That's her "Because Boomerangs!" ability coming back to her I think. icon_e_biggrin.gif

      Hey, but it's a new 4*! There are -tons- of ways to get that, including champed from 3*'s right? And the new 4* will totally matter in this overpowered 5* world, right?

      Oh, that's right....unless (I really, really hope until) they do something about 5*'s in regular PVP every new 4* can be added to Cologs "irrelevant" list. I guess they could make them incredibly broken for a bit of excitement.

      I just hopped over from the DDQ4* thread. -
      viewtopic.php?f=6&t=37974

      Saw something interesting. In the upcoming Boss battles. It listed Kate Bishop as the next boss with an unknown date. So is this the next 4* - look sharp? - Spoiler alert....

      Kate Bishop has been announced as the new 4* with these abilities. Not enough detail about specific moves though. And the self damage is labelled "Looking for Trouble". The purple is "Because Boomerangs"

      A character that hurts itself without an ability to heal... icon_e_confused.gif

      Great idea, and make sure to make it blackflag.png so you can't really use Kingpin or Drax to remove that CD.
