    Her description indicates that she has a particularly useful skill that really brings back some of the strategic elements to the game.  Can't wait to get her!!

    Gamora (Awesome Mix Volume 2) is the only character in “Marvel Puzzle Quest” that can instantly down any character!

    Deadpool says hi.

    I feel like she could be meta-defining.  I'm sad I don't have Quake, but then again, the A.I. likely wouldn't play Quake right with her anyway.  Ant-Man (who I do have champed) is likely better for defense.

    Are traps considered specials? If so, Doom is the obvious choice for best partner.

    I really like her with Carol (I feel like that is said a lot around here).  Strikes to buff and continual countdown to buff them, plus the two of them cover 5/6 colors (ironically missing just a purple user).

    Any character that self-stuns will have hard time against Gamora. IM40, beware.

    2-nerfs-ago 1* Venom says hi, also. 

    Looks like a good one, in any case.

    "There are also characters that remove enemy Special Tiles like Kamala Khan (Ms. Marvel) and Quake (Daisy Johnson) either separately or even together since they use both Purple and Blue to eradicate Purple basic tiles."

    Please fix this.  Kamala's Purple creates green and does not remove special tiles.  Did you get this Ms. Marvel confused with any of the 3 other versions?

    God her blue is going to be a total pain. Glad to get another strike tile creator, looking forward to messing around with her.

    Frustrating she is earned through another run of Hearts of Darkness. It seems like we see that event far too often.

    I hope they don't pair her with certain HAMMER/SHIELD or ISO Mutant goons.

    Another countdown tile and special tile creator. Should pair well with Drax's passive for the Guardians theme, or Carol of course.
    I do like that the instakill is passive, would hate to meet the conditions on the board but not have the ap to activate it.
    If traps count, then Antman at 5 purple will do it pretty easily. If the enemy tanks purple Xforce Deadpool could help. Kamala can turn the basic purple tiles green, leaving only friendly purple special tiles, is that what they were suggesting?
    Gamora Carol and Daredevil would be good, stun lock enemy until you fill the board with specials to down someone.

    Edit: Originally thought her countdown refreshed constantly like R&G, read that it is a 2 turn cd at 1 cover

    I believe he didn't mix up the character but the kind of utility he was talking about. Both Quake and Kamala remove a number of purple tiles (Quake by destroying them and Kamala by turning them green), making it easier to fill the few left with special tiles.

    So, using Storm 3* and her black actually makes this Gamora unstoppable?
    And how much purple specials do we need? If there is 1 purple on the board and i made it special, does passive work?

    Pretty intense! So if the board only has one purple tile, and she makes it hers, you die? Whoa...

    Hearts of darkness is a token fest and the first three subs are going central. Looking forward to playing this one :)

    I wonder if this was part of the reasoning behind un-nerfing SWitch...

    Gamora's going to be quite the scarecrow, I think, and very handy for Boss fights.

    At the start of your turn virtually assures this passive never triggers. Too much happens between you making a move and the ai making a move to ever set this up

    Very fun looking character.  B)

    For anyone who hasn't examined the gallery:

    L70 Deadly Strike w/ 1 cover:
    > 713 Damage
    > 2 Turn countdown dealing 179 damage each turn

    L70 Deadly Strike w/ 2 covers:
    > 991 Damage
    > 2 Turn countdown dealing 249 damage each turn

    L?? The Deadliest Woman... w/ 2 covers
    > 4 Strength 88 purple attack or strike tiles

    L?? The Deadliest Woman... w/ 3 covers
    > 4 Strength 112 purple attack or strike tiles

    L270 Incapacitate w/ 5 covers
    > Stuns target for 3 turns
    > Stuns random enemy for 1 turn
    > Passive creates a strength 211 purple attack or strike tile

    Frank Castle also feels left out by the "only character with an instant kill" comment. 

    Anyway, I suddenly regret never champing Ant-Man, because his purple is tailor-made for that passive. Other candidates include Kamala Khan (convert purples to special tiles, then convert whatever basic purples remain to green), Bullseye/Storm (just !#$%ing blanket the board in specials) or Quake (but her blue can remove special tiles, so be careful). Looks like fun, though!

    Yeah I was like, uh Kamala can't do that...
    She can, however, convert all other basic Purple tiles to Green so that the only remaining ones are (hopefully friendly) Special tiles.

    Elektra would be decent at this too.

    I can't see elektra being too useful since she gives the enemy purple special tiles and all tiles need to be your team's for her instant kill to work.
