    Boss events usually have their own boost list

    This is true. However, in this case, Iceman happens to be Featured, so he's Boosted there, too.
    Hulkbuster and 3* Iron Fist are boosted for it, too, which generally gets me through these pretty easily.

    Yeah true that, I was being lazy. Iceman doesn’t seem like a good match against galactus since his stun won’t work and aoe is wasted against one opponent, but I guess the side nodes maybe?

    Iceman will be handy when the side nodes scale up later today, especially for wiping out those wave nodes.

    No Invisible Woman versus event? Oh well, maybe later.
    Honor among Thieves is a drag, but I suppose it was due.

    I wonder how fast I can come up with 250cp to get that last Reyes cover I need...any color will do if I can stand to do a cover swap, but a non-green would be ideal. Currently sitting on 14cp...

    I estimate I can pull in 300 CP in a week, so it's not impossible. Difficult though. Are there any covers coming from 4* Ghost Rider anytime soon?

    Ah, the frustration of Versus during a boss event when you don’t have an open node to retreat-prep Thor:
    ”Okay, let him tank one more hit, and that should put him under 50%. Oh, shoot, the board set up a match 5 for the AI. Crit match 4, darn it, and set up another match 5, and another critical hit. And that’s 25,000 health gone and Thor needs a health pack now.”
    At least Gho5t Rider is Champed for Honor Among Thieves. Kitty too. Will have to use her against the Mindless Ones.

    I'm not sure I'm pulling down 300/week, but maybe. I need 14 more ghost 4iders to get there, I was planning to move my BHs over to GR and The Hood after I got another prowler and another Bishop to get them there for shield training anyway.

    Leave Dat Required Character or the Behemoth Burrito in DDQ unfinished. You can bring 5*s into those fights. I leave it unfinished until I've reset my shield for overnight sleep. Just don't forget to finish the node after that for the rewards/resources.

    I don't believe Invisible Woman will have a Versus event. (It might just be because she's before my time, but I don't recall her ever having one either)

    Instead, she was featured as the Crash of the Titans character at the beginning of the celebration.
    Part of the confusion comes from this article:

    https://www.marvel.com/articles/games/marvel-games-welcomes-marvel-s-first-family-with-fantastic-four-world-s-greatest-week

    Which says:

    The four core FF members are all getting their own Versus Events starting today, and running through January 20.

    And certainly seems to indicate she would. I'm not sure how many people will care about the change, but that's part of why we were expecting Invisible Woman to also get her own Versus event in the first place.

    Re: missing Sue’s pvp.
    On the one hand, I’m a bit disappointed that the article was incorrect.  On the other, a PVP with lots of locked tiles does not sound that fun to me.  I’ll consider this a win for the players.

    Big Enchilada, and yeah, I should consider doing that. It’s just the risk of not remembering to get the mission done.

    Bleh, yes. Big Enchilada is what I meant.

    I consider every bit of extra diversity a win for the players though, part of why i would love to see more 4* pvp, period.

    An
     alliance buddy pointed out they added rewards to the last node in the first sub in the prologue, so now I use that to prep Thor when nothing else is available.
    I had just started playing when Invisible Woman was introduced... Can't remember her getting a Versus event. It would be simple enough to make one, but on the other hand I don't mind it being skipped either.

    I have been expecting Cable as the next 5E, but the Goblin costume and store make me wonder if he gets a special run this week. We will see.
