    Sounds like another spider friend to me.  Healing and creating special (web) tiles seems to be among their main gimmicks.

Did we completely forget Defenders is coming to Netflix?... Okay, I got this) Uh, 5* Kingpin (Kingpin) because you like new villains. Make it a 3/5. It's Christmas!"
    I know everyone's gotta be sick of the Spider Friends, but I wouldn't mind Silk showing up eventually >.>
    You mean the version where her "costume" is just covering herself in skin-tight webs. Like Bayonetta, but with silk instead of hair.

    I have no idea why you'd want her added.

    EDIT: I hope the sarcasm came through. Barely there costume is just fine. I'd choose Black Cat first though.

    Because it's late, and I don't want to dissect sarcasm, I'd want her added because I collect her books and they're awesome. Good mix of humour and an interesting story.

    Black Cat would also be acceptable. I've loved her since the 90's animated series.

    Setting aside the D3 trend for esoteric character clues (which means the obvious GotG troll association is probably a red herring), in isolation this spoiler would seem to fit the fairly obscure superhero Jackpot - 777 is literally the source of her power (virus "lot 777"), and sometimes features on her costumes.

    She is awfully low profile though, with only the recent Spider-Man focus to suggest D3 might consider implementing her.

    The only troll link I know of is that she has long hair that is often billowing upwards when she is in airborne cover poses with Spider-Man:

    There was also the way they strung readers along about whether Jackpot was Mary-Jane or not when the character was introduced.  That was a bit of a troll.

    I thought the next toon due was a 5 star? This messes with my hoard pull date!!

    I also would love to see Silk, 2099, Captain Universe, I'd even take Ben Riley :-p

    Edit: Black Cat would be nice also.

    Maybe its Pip, with 5* Adam Warlock coming two weeks later.

    Oh my God. I just realised. There's a music video advertising the digital and Blu Ray releases of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2. The thing it...
    It's a disco video.
    Dazzler.
    Is.
    CONFIRMED!

    So turns out those '7AP' references were just placeholders

    Just like the **** Unknown (Coming Soon) ****

    Sometimes the AP amounts change based on how the character feels or plays.  They were all 7 but could have been placeholder completely when I put this up.  
  • DrDevilDinosaurDrDevilDinosaur Posts: 432 Mover and Shaker
    It's an interesting insight into the design process. This indicates that 7 AP is considered the "default" cost for abilities.
  • StickStick Posts: 146 Tile Toppler
    Oh hey, Title Change! Nice. I know lots of people were hoping for Yondu to get added!
  • Daredevil217Daredevil217 Posts: 3,194 Chairperson of the Boards
    Just please don't let the next release be 5* Daredevil. He's my favorite hero but I have no interest in the tier!
  • himatakohimatako Posts: 268 Mover and Shaker
    I like his powers on paper, keeping himself alive while wrecking the opponent's plan with AP destruction and targeting the weakest link. His blue passive would work well in dealing Dr. Strange or 4Cage, avoiding activating their passive.

    Somebody said in the reveal section that he would be a 3-5-5, but black seems weak to me, and since you have a lot of good black abilities out there (especially if you pair him with Carol), I would definitely want a 5-3-5 on him, and use his black only as utility.  Mordo's purple is a lot stronger than his black, and it cost 2 ap more. 

    On the other side, his blue, seems really really good. Finally a blue power (other than a stun) that I'm really looking forward using.

    Was really hoping for Yondu, so I'm very exited about him :)
  • D4Ni13D4Ni13 Posts: 745 Critical Contributor
    Wow. I looked at his pictures 3 times, and only then I realised, he has baby Groot on his shoulder in one of the animations. Nice detail.

    This guy reminds me of 4* Blade: Yondu also has a really good ability (blue), a mediocre ability (black) and a "meh" ability (yellow).
  • Rick_OShayRick_OShay Posts: 765 Critical Contributor
    Looks very cool. I hope that we can plan to start matches with him injured, ensuring to regain health as soon as match-4's start happening (saving health packs). 
    Anyone want to place bets on new sound effects added to the game for Yondu? Doubt it, but we can hope. His Yaka Arrow should have his whistling sound from the movie, but it will probably sound just like Mordo purple...
    Blue looks fantastic! As if Thanos needed another good pairing though...

    I don't know, Yaka Parachute seems pretty good to me. It'll probably take 5 covers to make it anything more than a novelty but at 270 it does heal for nearly 15% of his health every turn after the proc. Plus it's a CD, which Drax and Star-Lord (among others) care about. Competes for Yellow tiles with Star-Lord, I guess.

    I guess it's a shame that it doesn't do anything until you start the turn after making the match-4.

    I think it's probably more impactful than Ravager's Ruse, though, unless you're bringing him on a team that cares about special tiles, otherwise those (up to) 7 tiny tiles aren't going to matter that much.
