    *Editor's Note: The poll is supposed to show 5/3/5 as an option, not 5/4/5. Apologies for the confusion!

    I like her but too bad since she's a 5-star character, I won't be able to use her at her full strength :(  Would be fun to combo her red with 4* Deadpool's purple. I also like how her design of making TU AP much more useful. Though, I'm not sure if this will work well with 5* BP since his yellow spend 7 to 10 TU AP when you have 11 or more. But since it only activates on a yellow match, I suppose it will work well and making collecting TU AP more beneficial. You have a choice of keeping them for damage boost or making a yellow match for a nuke.

    I think this character is being heavily slept on. 

    She seems like she's going to be an amazing 5 support than can also dish out damage. And I finally have a reason to use those team up tile boost!.

    She’s going to be the new meta once people realize how heavy that black passive is and get her covered.  Every team up match makes all your powers hit 4k harder.  If it really does work with passives, Black Bolt’s passive will be doing 13k turn after two tu matches.  If it wasn’t for the fact that she pairs so well with him, she would be the Gambit slayer.  In practice, she will at least open up options for people.  Thor will be doing easy 25k aoes, JJ blue passive will hit like a nuke, Strange and BB passives doing 10k+, etc, etc, etc...

    If anything, she’s probably nerf bait.

    Thing is, her passive is really confusing. Check out her other thread: Brigby has stated that her Black passive boosts Dr Strange's passive Faltine Flames, but not Medusa's Entanglement. That's contradictory.
     I think Dr Strange's passive power is doing damage, but Medusa's power is creating a countdown, where the countdown does the damage. If thats the case, then she doesn't pair well with countdown or repeater users, unless they do damage as well as create them.

    Seems like any active power that can be triggered would trigger it, so repeaters (maybe be out of the question)  but passives like strange and black bolt would. Medusa passive isn't really active it creates a title but there isn't really an active or direct damage from the power itself. So it makes sense to me.

    Medusa is a bad example for them to use as Entaglement damage is added to the total of Attack tile damage rather than dealing its own specific damage. Wakanda Forever won’t boost Attack tiles, so it wasn’t going to affect Entanglement. Need to check it against powers like Crimson Bands of Cytorrak, See the Math of it, Countdown for What, etc.

    Disgusting new partner for 5* Gambit if her black can trigger per countdown tile on Ragin Cajun, either way free extra damage on the spamfest that is Aces & Eights.

    5* DD would probably enjoy her company too with Hand to Hand every turn, this all banks on if these abilities will work like this with her black.

    For the rest of us mortals down in 4* land few come to mind:

    -DPX countdown for what
    -Red Hulk Hammer & Anvil (maybe Seeing Red? who knows)
    -Vulture One Fell Swoop
    -C&D Light Dagger and even more damage off the 3 cost Pocket Dimension.
    -Possibly Yondu if his blue can get the bonus damage every turn, but I doubt it.

    Spending the 8 TU in the first place for Strategic Command can, but will not always net you a positive gain of TU.

    Gotta say, I'd rather bank that 10k damage per turn with Bolt than spend it on maybe getting more TUs.

    Small nitpick, but the poll option 5/4/5 should be 5/3/5

    Interesting that her black passive has been nerfed to not add damage to tile destruction powers, such as those used by Gambit, Thor, Storm, etc., (but especially Gambit) but it does add damage to passive powers, such as Strange's Flames, Lockjaw's Loyal Protector, etc.

    I'm having so much fun with Okoye. In the now-gone but not forgotten Deadpool PvP it was amusing watching Deadpool's red hit for 20k and actually down people. In the soon-gone Cloak & Dagger PvP it's spamming C&D's purple for massive amounts of Okoye-boosted damage; and watch out if I can get C&D's yellow off... ouch! Throw in Medusa for kicks and very little can survive. Gambit-shmambit, he goes down just as quickly as everyone else.

    Yeah, I mostly ran her with Medusa and all of a sudden I remembered that this game can still be really fun.
