    n00b question time! What do the affiliations do?
    They affect certain abilities like Grocket's strike tiles.
    Are there some that are really well-known? Are they more common at the 4 and 5* levels? I don't think I've ever seen any . . .

    Almost everyone has at least one. They’re on th character bio page after all the ability screens.

    Beast should be affiliated to Defenders (he was a regular cast member for a couple of years) and Iceman was in the New Defenders also.

    I don't think there's a 3* who's got an ability that's dependent on someone's affiliation, they're quite rare even within the 4*/5* tier

    Besides 4* R&G making stronger strike tiles with a GotG teammate, I can only remember three others.

    Ghost Rider red does more damage to villains
    5* Cap and IronMan have skills depending on having Team Cap and Team Iron Man teammates

    There's also Mr Fantastic. His yellow generates green AP if you have another FF member in your team.

    I guess there won't be additional Runaway characters since Nico Minoru does not have a Runaway affiliation.

    Give Nova a Guardians of the Galaxy tag, please.

    I'm still waiting for She Hulk to have the Fantastic Four tag
    I am also waiting for Ant Man, Black Panther, Luke Cage, Medusa, and Storm to be added to FF.  They've all been members at one point or another.

    @Brigby

    Why not run a contest where you name the new affiliation and let players suggest who should be added to the team and why?  There are lots of very knowledgeable comic fans that jump at the chance to debate why this person should be a defender, Xmen, Avenger etc..  

    You don't have to accept all of the community's suggestions but I can guaratee you that you'll get better/ more indepth research on teams than you ever would from a work study intern.

    Hi Everyone. Rest assured, this is not necessarily a conclusive list of all character team affiliations in game.

    This unfortunately involves the update being pushed back to next week, however the development team has decided to update this list, based on the community's feedback!

    I will add a note to the original post to highlight this change.
    @Brigby
     Point of clarification is R141 being pushed back a week or just this affiliation thing?

    I want a Secret Warriors affiliation: Quake, Kamala, Devil Dinosaur.

    I guess we're getting a whole heap of new affiliation-based boosts.  I was wondering if they will stack.

    This could also go to 3* Iron Man, The Thing, 3* Danvers, and Agent Venom.

    How about more team iron man and team cap characters ? Even if they’re arbitrarily assigned ;)

    More feedback aka nitpicking then! Nick Fury is listed as "Agent of SHIELD" but should be "Director of SHIELD". And Tony Stark was Director of SHIELD and Invisible Woman was an agent, they should get that affiliation too.

    If he was on the team for an arc or two, sure. The more the merrier.
