    Interesting.  What happens if there's a tie for colour most present on the board?  Is it in the order presented?  Are Team-ups ignored in the determination?

    I'm not in a position to test these scenarios out for myself, otherwise I would.  Probably.

    I would run a 5/5/3.

    Prevent as much damage to team as possible while keeping the random power ever changing. The two additional charges tiles and additional damage for the green skill is not as enticing to me. Thor 4* can build more charges tiles and bring more damage.

    if you do combo, Lockjaw with Medusa and Black Bolt then maybe 5/3/5, but if Lockjaw is with Medusa and Carnage, then better make use of 5/5/3.

    Finally I can ask my question.  Ok, lets say we have 4Deadpool, Spiderwoman and Lockjaw on a team and Spiderwomans black is active will Lockjaw and Deadpool get to do their passive defensive attacks?  We can throw Colossus and Electra in here as well but I see some real potential playing those three depending on how the damage and passives resolves .  If Lockjaw and Deadpool get to do their passive attack/defend power that is nice and if Spiderwoman dodges the attack and nobody takes any damage that is even better.  I realize some special tiles need to be on the board for Lockjaw to activate his but it is doable with the right cards or if Countdown to What counts (even more damage).

    That is what I would hope, ideally Deadpool or Lockjaw would jump up front then the next one finally Spiderwoman would jump back to the front because of he black power and dodge the attack and nobody would receive damage.  I cannot test this one out myself, I only have Spiderwoman in a usable state.  Electra might work really well here as well, she can generate special tiles upping the chance of Lockjaw activating, with her black out and her up front.

    Aside from his Yellow he seems kind of underwhelming. His yellow is a 5. The others I'm not sure about.
  • hopper1979hopper1979 Critical Contributor Posts: 559 Critical Contributor
    I don't know yet, a lot depends on my questions above.  Even if that all falls through he will be a great partner for 4Thor with his green she will destroy people, throw them behind a tanky 5 and watch out.  He seems like a very solid support character, yellow and green are both very useful.  I am a big fan of charged tiles (I know I am in the minority on that one) so he will have his uses even if his damage is a little underwelming on paper.  Damage resolution with really dictate how good he is.

    You can already test the spider-woman/deadpool reaction right now. I'm assuming since SW (and Lockjaw) reduce the damage by 100%, X-Enforcer will not trigger.
  • hopper1979hopper1979 Critical Contributor Posts: 559 Critical Contributor
    I cant because I do not have Deadpool leveled :)  The point you make is my concern whose passive activates first and when does the damage count as being reduced 100%.  Electra might be better for this question than Spiderwoman since she does not reduce it she just avoids it.  I dont know, a year down the road when I have Lockjaw and Deadpool completely covered I will mess around with this. :)

    Lockjaw Yellow with Cardusa is pretty much immortal.

    Can you post max level numbers for Lockjaw, 5* Daredevil and 3* Electkra please?

    While with kk in my team he summoned kk anyway, she casted a heal and procced my heal from my kk.

    If there is a tie for color, then which ability is available is chosen at random between those colors.

    I can see if I can acquire those numbers, but usually Cthulhu is the one that has that information available. If I can acquire them, then I'll definitely update the numbers to max level.

    I said I was too lazy to do it in the other thread where this came up, but ok fine...

    Good meme, haa.
    Now, that extra-heal just sounds like overkill, or wasted on at least 1 character. 
    Why not just wait until the board has a different color as the most present? Do something better with it, like damage etc.

    Anyone used enough to have a good feel for the most useful/powerful "most color" summon? I've been underwhelmed by all, but have only really played around with loaners.

    He's also a potential good Goddess Thor partner but didn't experiment much yet.
    I posted this in a few other places, but I took him, IM40 and 4* Thor into TBE shortly after he was released. I think he had 2 green covers. At one point, I had over 30 charged tiles on the board, and my Level 194 Thor was doing more than 20K damage unboosted. I'd hate to see the damage a boosted champ could do with a board like that.

    I've been posting picture my Line alliance chat. When I use Thor, Lockjaw and Vulture I often end up lock-stunning the opponents while Vulture is up there doing his thing whatever it is he's doing to generate AP for both Thor and Lockjaw. It usually ends with the entire board bering charged (apart from TU tiles) and Thor's one-hitting 5*s (40K+ damage).
    Slow and unreliable strategy, but fun. If Lockjaw treated charged tiles the way he treats special tiles he would be a winner.
    What, you mean, making all those charged tiles isn't enough for you?
  • hopper1979hopper1979 Critical Contributor Posts: 559 Critical Contributor
    Then you need to work on your timing :)  I cannot wait to get him leveled.  I am a huge fan of charged tiles and think they are very underrated by many on this board.  I wish his other powers did a little more damage but this is a great support character and it is centered around tile generation and damage minimization.
  • hopper1979hopper1979 Critical Contributor Posts: 559 Critical Contributor
    Bark.

    I am not sure if Electra does do it better.  On the right team you can spam a lot of friendly tiles to exploit, Carnage, Blade, Carol, 4Cage, Rocket/Groot and Gemora all come to mind and his power does not cost 11 ap and a match does not screw it up, it triggers it instead.  I am far from play-testing him but the potential is there.  I think he is being underrated right now because not too many people have him covered yet.
