Since we probably won't be seeing any X-Men love anytime soon, here's a possible option for a more realistic character. On a scale of 1-10, Karnak is probably a 6, HP wise. 

Purple-Find the Weak Point (8): Karnak detects an opening and capitalizes on it. Destroys 3 AP in the enemy's strongest color. If their strongest color is the same as yours, Karnak destroys 3 AP in another random color. 
Level 2: Destroys 4 additional AP in a random color. 
Level 3: Destroys 4 AP initially. 
Level 4: Destroys 5 additional AP in a random color. 
Level 5: Destroys 6 AP initially. 

Green-Exploit the Weak Point (PASSIVE): Karnak is always on the lookout for an opportunity, gaining knowledge as he goes. When making a match in your strongest color, generate 1 additional AP in a random color and generate 1 AP for the enemy team in their weakest color. 
Level 2: Generate 2 additional AP for Karnak. 
Level 3: Generate 2 AP for enemy team in their weakest color. 
Level 4: Generate 3 AP for each team.
Level 5: Matches in your strongest color destroys 1 AP in enemy's strongest color. 

Blue-Strike the Weak Point (6): Every enemy has a weakness that will eventually be their downfall. Karnak strikes at it and destroys all of the enemy's AP in their weakest color, dealing 31 damage for each AP destroyed. 
Level 2: Deals 40 damage for each AP destroyed. 
Level 3: Deals 51 damage for each AP destroyed. 
Level 4: Deals 64 damage for each AP destroyed. 
Level 5: Stuns the target for 1 turn.

    Giving the other team AP in their weakest colour seems like it could be a pretty major drawback in a lot of matches. Many characters have one of their best powers on their weakest colour, somewhat balanced by the relatively poor match damage. Handing a bunch of green to Thanos or Khan, or a bunch of black to Panther, or purple to Falcon, seems like a really bad idea.

    It's definitely a gamble. That's why I thought making his blue power so cheap would be worth taking that risk, in a way setting off those high damage powers due to their high cost.

    I'd be fine with it if it was a manual vs Passive grant.  That way you could grant the AP, then immediately fire Blue, but yeah passive would be bad IMO.

    Also converting the move to manual would make him bad on defense or bad with characters that cause characters to trigger powers out of your control (MB, Colossus).  But that's not unheard of.  It's an interesting idea I wouldn't be a opposed to seeing.
