    Most of the characters I know of that fly in comics are unable to go airborne.

    *scratches head*

    I mean I know it’s tough to balance powers, but Nova? Storm? Rogue, Marvel, even Magneto. These people are almost always flying during battle.

    People are playing surprisingly hard for some 5*Wasp shards..
    Maybe they realize she's not completely Hope-less. (/rimshot)

    Don't worry, I'll escort myself out...

    After opening a token, both of my 3* and 4* Cap have 152 shards. What are the odds of that happening?

    Did Miguel 2099 Spider-man have a weird/limited release cycle? I was looking at my 4* roster, and I have at least nine covers for every non-limited 4* older than Super Skrull, but I only have four for Miguel (and a sort of odd 0/3/1 coverage, at that).

    No....He had 5 times as an essential 4.  One of them was during a boss event, so you would have gotten one cover for him in personal progression if you played it.  The event was Sinister 6.

    5 appearances has been about average lately, maybe someone will get to 6 with the 4/5 release pattern (and the double 5s recently).   If you had played to progression in all his events at SCL7, you'd have at least 5 covers.  He did not run under the new rewards, so if you did not get any placement covers and you didn't get him from any pulls (or PVP) or shard him, then that would be how many you'd have.  Maybe you missed an event somewhere.

    I think the timing of the events must've coincided with public holidays or something. I recall having a bit more difficulty playing the events that I ended up getting less covers than usual for him too initially.
    Launch was 10/10, Essential 10/13

    Next placement was 10/27, Sinister 6 was 10/31

    11/14 Infinite Pursuit placement, 11/17 progression

    12/5 Simulator placement, 12/8 progression

    1/6 Strange Sights placement,  1/9 progression

    No holidays except Halloween, but November/December can be busy times for people.

    Just had an interesting realization yesterday. 

    When I started playing a little over 4 years ago, the 5* tier was the smallest one in the game (7 at that time), and the 3* tier the largest. 

    Soon the 5* tier will be the second largest and the 4* tier is now twice as large as the 3* tier. The 5* tier would already be the second largest if they hadn't added 7 more 3*s after I started playing.

    Cause the Gamependium is down for a little bit, I made and excel sheet to track my roster. Put there some obvious thing that many places lack: feeders but not the way you think. In any places you can find info that champion X is a champion Y feeder (e.x. Moonstone is Hulk feeder). I did the opposite: I wrote down by whom champion is fed. For example: I did not wrote 2* Moonstone feeds 3* Hulk but the opposite, 3* Hulk is fed by 2* Moonstone. So the info is in 3* Hulk.

    Looking at the list, I found some unique infos:

    The fastest/easiest 4* to cover is X-23 as 2* Daken feeds 3* Daken and he is feeder of X-23 and 2* Ares feeds 3* Ragnarok and he is sub-feeder of her. So max champing both gives you 1 cover and 1100 shards.

    Second to that is Wolverine as 2* feeds 3* and 3* feeds 4* plus Collossus is his sub-feeder. Netto same value that 1st place, but one less 2* feeder makes it slower.

    Third is Electra as she is only one with two 3* feeders, Elektra and Daredevil. Although the netto this two gives more than 3* Collossus and Wolverine, but this lacks the 2* feeder element of speeding it up.

    Fourth is Jean Grey with 3* Beast being her feeder and Angel being her sub-feeder and tar Lord with 3* Star Lord feeder and 3* Gamora Sub-feeder.

    On fifth place we have a tie for the rest 4* who are fed by 3* fed by 2*, so it is Professor X, Captain Marvel, Kate Bishop, Totally Awesome Hulk, the Thing, Valkyrie, Kingpin, Nick Fury, Red Hulk, Thor (Jane Foster) and Winter Soldier. I put them below the previous one because of the fact that we can get 3* shards from every token that features 2* so on average, chasing Beast and Angel/Starl Lord and Gamora will get you faster the shard for Jean than chasing any two from this list.

    It is worth noting that Wolverine (X-Force) gets 3 covers from the resupply - Day 149, Day 165 and Day 180 whereas X-23 does not gain a free cover until Day 925. Those 3 covers often mean Wolvie wins the Champion race.

    Yep, casue people usually does not chase any of them. Or chase Gamora/Rocket & Groot/Juggernaut/whatever. Still it will be propably faster to get X-23 covered than Wolvie when chasing Dakens and Ares+Ragnarok than Wolvies and Collossus. And if we skip login rewards and work on like duplicate then she is faster.

    Interesting facts: Nighcrawler is not only immune to 4* Cap Marvel passive but to Deadpool Whales. Even if pushed. Just tested out of curiosity.

    However if you have Archangel's blue cover you can punish Nightcrawler for his crafty dodging tactics.

    I found a couple of things in MPQ today mildly amusing. 

    1) The image of Legion for his PvP event, with his arms outstretched - He looked to me sort of like a frat boy saying "Dude, I said I would pick up the keg, chill out, brah!"

    2) In my daily shard offers, I had Emma Frost, Dazzler, and Spider-Gwen, and the 5-star was Silver Surfer. Silver Surfer looked quite fussy in his pose, and I imagined he was jealous of the luxurious blonde hair of the three women, since he doesn't have a follicle to his name.  :p

    A Teisatsu's on-death effect does not trigger when he is stunned.
    Doctor Doom's on-death effect does trigger when he is stunned.

    The way his hair is, he's the one who looks like he needs to chill out to me ;)

    Random info: if you use Invisible Woman/whatever ability to lock down a special tile which causes someone to go airborne (like Karolina Dean Blue Ability) then its neverending story. That character will stay airborne until you will destroy the tile/cooldown is off.

    Good thing Vulture doesn't have a tile to make him go Airborne, or else that would be completely busted.
