    Finally :)  I have been waiting for the comments and the team suggestions for him since he dropped.  He is a crazy good character and is definitely a top 10 pve 4-star.  On the right teams (4 Cage, his Sister, Sandman, Prof X) he is going to be a monster.  I think he will probably be able to generate more passive damage through matching shields than even Dr. Strange after a couple of turns.  He may even be solid in PVP but I think he is a little too defense oriented to get lots of play there, his sister, on the other hand, is going be be the new PVP killer that reduction in ap cost is crazy.  Either way great job on these last two characters.

    You really think he’s top 10?  I’m not so sure about that. Shuri is easily a top tier 4* PVE or PVP. I’m having a blast and can’t seem to stop playing her. I’ve been using all sorts of partners and it’s pretty much game over once you cast that red. I’m having trouble finding a great team for Panther though. Mind you I’m talking PVP simulator. For PVE there’s just wayyy too many great options in 4* land to see Panther as a difference maker. I think Panther is definately in the play only when boosted tier but I would love team suggestions. Cage is good only against goons really. Otherwise you are taking a punch of hits to get those shields out for T’Challa.  I think Nico would be great but having two active overlapping powers hurts.

    I wrote my comment before she came out, she is better due to the ap reduction but he is a excellent pve toon.  Him and Shuri paired up with somebody like power man to generate more shields you will destroy teams on passive damage alone.  You need shield tiles for BP to work so he is a little more limited that Shuri is but.  Having played him a bit more I would put him in the top half and she is in the top 10.  Both are great additions.

    What are some good teams you’re playing him on?

    Well to be honest I only have 4 covers on him so much of what I am saying is theoretical but I did some testing with 4Cage during his release and they worked very well together.  For BP to work you need shields to match for the passive damage so 4Cage is an obvious choice, BP generates shields very well on his own but you will be using Cage's yellow over BP's and BP's red over Cages, between the two you should have a decent amount of shields very quickly, Nico might be good in place of Cage but the color overlap is bad with BP so I would go with Cage over Nico.  You also are planning on matching shield tiles for damage so buffing is not as important.  The 3rd is either Shuri who synergies very well with both Cage and BP and gives a great outlet for green.  I would use her red to generate another passive damage source instead of Cage's or BP's red.  Also the fortified shield tiles still cause BP passive to fire so you double dip with them and Shuri plus you do not loose the shield.  Keep Cage up front and spam his yellow, with the ap reduction of Shuri of it will cost 5 ap and the damage from that will be crazy in a couple of turns once you get multiple fortified shields on the board.  Two passive damages BP and Shuri, all three generate fortified tiles, and no upper limit to the damage of Cages yellow which costs 5 under ideal conditions, very fast, high defense and constant damage.

    This is a pve team I Shuri is the only competitive pvp character of the 3 but this team should destroy any goon oriented team.  When I get BP and Shuri maxed, in a couple of months I will let you know more about good combos.  :)  I was playing BP, OML and 4Cage during the release with a few strikes on the board I was averaging about 3-5 k for a shield match so his passive can do some real damage.

    I pulled the last blue I needed to get BP fully covered this morning, and had enough iso to power him up to 200. Looking forward to testing out the synergy with Shuri, and I will definitely try 4* Cage as a third as suggested above. This looked like a fun team to use.

    Together they are crazy good.  Still looking for that ideal third, Nico is solid, 4Cage is great but he overlaps too much with BP so you have to pick whose yellow to spam, it will be Cage due to how fast you can cast his yellow, you need some pink to make a rainbow team Ghost might be good have not tried her anybody who produces attack tiles so you maximize the damage from BP and Shuri's passives also is great since they double dip on each others matches.

    Shuri (5/3/5) /P4nther (5/5/3) /Main Event Hulk (5/5/3) is such a fun team. Chase Shuri's red, get P4nther's yellow and blue out as often as you can, Hulk's random tile match will start to swap fortified defense tiles before too long, watch hilarity ensue. When you throw down a Gamma Powerbomb where the crits show up inside fortified tiles and go off twice it is amazing.

    In lieu of C4ge, try running Flaptain as a 3rd for this team. P4nther is a highly effective shield-spammer on blue, Shuri can keep AP costs inline, and then Flaptain can either spam out shields or use Dive-Bomb for a reasonable amount to 1-shot most targets. His passive blue tile buff will really got to work on P4nther's already good special spam

    You could also use Sandman as a 3rd to get an active purple; his green is a more reliable stun with AoE damage, P4nther's repeater will keep defend tiles on the board for sand smash, and his purple can shuffle the board to generate incidental fortify/defend match damage combos
