The reason I am not in the game yet is because I'm being reserved for the first 6-star slot. (Obviously.) Wolverine will have to wait.
I really don't want 6's, for a handful of reasons, but I'd be more down for their inclusion if they were exclusively just the crazy nuts one-off things like this. Like the Red Hulk Venom Ghost Rider. Or Captain Universe Spider-Man. Uatu, or the Beyonder, maybe Adam Warlock from the end of Infinity Gauntlet (as in, WITH the Gauntlet). Just go nuts.Oh, and you totally should have included this image, because the Phoenix saying "Bub" is awesome.
(Disclaimer: This is not an official announcement. I simply enjoy coming up with ideas on occasion, and this is one of my personal ones I'd like to share)What if 6-Star characters did exist, but they were only playable in a special event? These 6-Star characters would also be, as @JHawkInc put it, "the crazy nuts one-off things" like a Phoenix-Possessed Wolverine, Beyonder, or Franklin Richards. They'd also be set to some crazy level like....level 750!
We already have a 6* tier in the game. What? You haven't heard of it? Don't you know about those special tokens that can't be bought with CP or HP and you only get in vaults if you're lucky? Plus, you can only level up your 6* with a special kind of ISO. These 6* characters are so useful that they can support your existing characters with increased match damage and other free powers. They're amazing, right? In fact, they're so good that they were banned from PVP. But don't worry if you don't have them, they were made just for the whales. Common folk can't afford them.
My big worry about the 6* tier is what they will call it. In my mind, they have already got the names of the 4*(Legendary) and 5*(Epic) tiers back to front...
