    Not everyone has the same two highest level characters.  And there's a decent sized list of boosted characters at the 4* and 3* levels, so I have been seeing a fair bit of variety in opponents.  If the complaint is that Gambit dominates at the 5* tier, what else is new?
    Its mainly about the potential not being fully used for this event. 

    People not using gambolt probably has 1 reason: not having 1 or both... lol

    But gambit v gambit is getting tiresome for sure. Maybe just fix with whole game by locking him out? :-)

    But again, this is no anti gambit rant. Just want someone to show me the comic where gambit and bolt are BFFs (or even in 1 shot... )

    S.H.I.E.L.D. Training - Kraven the Hunter (1/11/18)
    Required Characters: Kraven the Hunter, America Chavez, The Thing, Ant-Man

    I'm annoyed that after nearly 4yrs of playing I still do not have Ant-Man champed or even fully covered. He's been sitting at 15/2/2 forever!

    It was a nice touch to have Kraven go up against different Spider-people in his solo nodes.

    I have all 5 4s boosted. Interested in what the fastest PVE combos are. Maybe Riri/Vulture. Or TA Hulk could be a good tank/battery for Riri as well. Has anyone tried using wasp to flip Gwenpooles protects?

    Now I'm confused, is it Thor or Gambit that is next to exit latest?

    Gambit. He was released around the anniversary in October. Thor came out about a month later to coincide with the release of Ragnarok in theaters.

    tinykitty, now I have to risk wasting Thor covers if I want to cover Gambit. Bummer.

    Edit: just got my 12th Gambit, and a bonus hero archangel. Forgot to change it back to Gambit after SS ended. Wonder if I should re BH Gambit.

    Yes. That’s the easiest MPQ question of the day.  ;)

    That works but, you will usually get much more mileage out of Wasps black to sting an enemy and ensure you have the blue to also stun. That's good damage for cheap. 
    Use Wasp's yellow twice in a row and that protect tile will be pretty strong on its own.

    Had the same question, puzzled over it for quite a while.  Honestly, I found that (for me at least) unboosted R&G/Medusa(or Essential)/Gamora were still faster than any combo I could come up with using the current boosted list.  At least for easier nodes.  Thinking of using Kate/Vulture/Wasp or Kate/Vulture/Riri for the nastier wave nodes and nodes with 2-3 tile-movers.

    Hope you have better luck coming up with something!

    I ended up going with riri, gwenpool, and Im40, as I found things were too slow to get going with wasp as the third

    *(1/12/18) Brigby - Updated Versus events, Story events, Deadpool's Dailies, and Weekly Buffs

    So Thor leads off the new cycle of the Latest 5* essential? Curiouser and curiouser...

    I am highly suspicious regarding the things listed for Thursday. Story, Deadpool Daily, and buffs are all listed. Versus is not. Is that because we can see for ourselves that Spider-Man is 3-star placement for Thanos, or are you just hiding the it will be 4-star Versus starring Spider-Gwen instead? Kind of hoping not Gwen actually, since it would indicate Champ reward update, and I cant imagine her rewarding any character but Spidey (Parker). We have a feeder for him, please cycle through other 5s.

    Modding is hard work.
    We understand.

    Boosted Rogue will be funteresting. Going to need to be aware of the strongest colors of each enemy we'll be facing. 
    4SL and Cyclops work decently together, and with either red that hits for good damage there's still little reason to use Rogue's (although the 3x3 AP and targeted destruction will still be great). 
    Looking forward to a few 30K Power Siphons!*

    *Remember that if you down the final enemy with Power Siphon, Rogue will not take the self-damage
