    What perks should the Spider-mobile offer to Hawkeye and Wolverine?
    Restores OML to his pre-Nerf status and Hawkeye obtain DD's Sonar Strike ability.

    Or to mix it up, restores Hawkeye to his pre-change state: a Support that re-enables his old "Avoid" ability!
    Zounds! That was before my time!
    I'd actually forgotten Hawkeye got changed. His red and blue used to be so OP.

    Am I the only one thinking that supports in PvP would be only on our side and not on the defending team?  


    Probably.. this will be their way of re-introducting Win-Based PVP: "We are releasing Supports to Versus. The supports will not be available for the defending team to allow you to beat opponents faster. With that said, we decided to bring back Win-Based rewards!"

    Supports seem cool but in any case I really want a chimichanga now.

    If there isn't a boxing glove arrow, then they are doing it all wrong.

    When will this go live?  In the next update, but will that be today or tomorrow?

    Seems strange that they'll release Supports in the middle of an event... in the middle of a chapter, even, as Luck Be a Lady is a 48-hour story.  So I guess we do nodes 4x without Supports and nodes 3x with them!

    Supports will not be usable for any event that we know of yet. They have not announced when we can use them.

    That being said, Unstable ISO-8 was swapped out for MR&G. And since the story for Unstable involves Red ISO, it is probably next.

    I think your on to something. That is why they swapped them so we can use them in that event from the beginning and it goes with the Red ISO theme.

    I must have missed that part of the message...so we can collect them starting tomorrow, but have no idea when we'll be able to use them?

    Other then being unavailable for PvP there haven’t been any restrictions announced on using supports in PvE. What makes you think this?

    I must have misread something. It looks like they are going to be usable at launch. Sorry!!!

    That said, I wonder what level they will all launch at and how much it will impact our play, since there are 50 levels per rank.

    Pretty sure they changed it because Unstable ISO would give 2 jubilee covers as rewards from progression and they didn't wanna give two progression covers for her after being kind enough to give a majority of players 3 covers from the boss event.

    Are you thinking 2 covers in progression because of a 7-day event? Because that's ISO-8 Brotherhood. Unstable ISO-8 is the short one that has Captain America on the image, where Steve Rogers was replaced with Peggy when she came out. It only gives one 4* in progression.

    There always is an event going on.. ;-)
    And doing it in the middle of a 48h sub makes it the least disturbing in my opinion. Now only difference in slices will be whether to hit each node once, with or without the feature...
    Assuming thats a big reason to pick this pve as well.

    Well I want a grandfathered amount of Red ISO for all the times I completed that event, darn it!

    Another question for the unanswered "can't wait until it's delivered to find out" pile.

    Do supports contribute to XP in any way?

    Will gaining a CL also reward red ISO?  If so, will it be backdated as "normal" ISO was?
