    Sweet more c listers!  Can we get some of the missing headliners?

    I love her!!!  <3  That yellow passive almost seems like two passives in one -- are those two effects (the strike tile creation when teammate damaged, and the extra match damage when an enemy has under a certain amount of AP) mutually exclusive of each other? Or are those effects linked in some way that I'm not able to parse out from the tooltip?

    Also, thank you for the first ever one-active-power character whose active color ISN'T purple, black, or blue. More variety like this is always great for teambuilding.

    Don't worry, in April we'll have some more Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and Hawkeye and Black Widow characters!

    She doesn't look as awesome as I was hoping (was hoping for the Valkyrie outfit at the end of the movie), but she seems like she'll be a fun character on the right teams. The numbers of course will help determine how good she actually is, but I'm quite excited for an onslaught ability that has 5 hits in rapid succession. Quintuple-dipping on strike tiles will make me feel like I'm really sticking to Daken because of his glitch. 

    On another note, these event times seem a little weird. Aren't Simulator and Thick As Thieves 3-day, and 4-day events respectively? The dates he gives on the article imply that they will both be a day longer. This is likely just because of s5 though, and I'm overthinking. In either case I really hope they finally toned down the Rogue/Gambit presence in Simulator. They probably didn't, but it's fun to hope for a pleasant surprise.

    I think how they implement her multiattack will matter as well. 

    will it be as they say and actually hit 5 times, and thus if you down an enemy with the second hit it will continue on to the next... or will it just do a 5x attack + 5x strike on one enemy.

    I don’t imagine we’ll get Thor or Iron Man (just got a Thor, and I just don’t want to see 2 IM in one tier). Not sure what the bleached hair will bring to Black Widow, and Hawkeye doesn’t seem all that prominent based on the trailers. But I could hope for a 4* Steve Rogers (Sexy, Rugged Beard) in the game. They just need to get this man a shield. Also, Spider Man (Iron Spider) might be okay. Or a Vision (Lobotomised by the Black Order)?

    Not a fan of her look, but her powers seem interesting.

    Ooh, definitely looking forward to her. Not only was she my favourite new character from Ragnarok, but that sounds like a power set that will mesh nicely with a number of my favourite pairings.

    Earlier announcement than usual could that mean we might have a second character released in the same week :smiley:

    Very happy to have her, she was the standout character in 'Ragnarok.' I like the way she looks, for the most part. At first I thought I'd have preferred her second costume, but now I'm on the fence. The real thing I'd have liked to have seen in the art was her boozy swagger.

    Power-wise, she seems like she could be great depending on the numbers. Even if they're lackluster, she'll still be a great C4rol partner as others have noted.

    RE: "Her second attack is called Bounty Hunter and it’s a Black Passive power.  For this ability, she creates a Black Countdown tile that targets a random enemy.  If that enemy is downed or takes a certain amount of damage before the Countdown tile expires, this tile is removed and the player gets 4 AP in their strongest color while destroying 4 AP in the enemy’s strongest color."

    @Brigby ;Is there some requirement that must be met to activate this, or does she automatically create the countdown tile whenever one does not exist? How long does the countdown tile last? Those details greatly impact how insane this ability would be paired with C4rol.

    I don’t want to see two of any character in any tier. Even though we’ve got several #TimeFor6*s

    Simulator? Why are we being punished?

    Looks like the movies version but the abilities don't seem to match. **inappropriate content removed**
     
    you really want a taser ability to stun opponents? How many variation of stuns must there be? I prefer new abilities. May be passive to show her being an alcoholic?

    Valkyrie takes a drink each round and then stuns a random opponent if the team has at least 12 ap in a color. The drink however depletes two random ap each round.

    I feel like 2 Spideys in the 5* tier only happened because even the devs forgot BSSM existed. ;)

    Way I see it, 4* tier is missing a Parker Spider-Man, Steve Rogers, and BW. So I wouldn't be surprised for any of those. And the 5* tier could get Vision and SW to round out the MCU Avengers.

    @Brigby can you say who the essential 2* and 3* will be for Thick as Thieves?
