    Looking at the App icon I guess we are also getting Namor and God Doom from Secret Wars. Two characters that players have wanted for a while. Awesome job Devs.

    While I like Reed as-is, I've never understood why Reed burst heals. His stun makes sense, as he can wrap fools up with his stretchy bod. Defense tiles make sense, again because of his elastic powers. And the Imaginaut is a perfect representation of his big brain. But healing (others)? I never got it.
  • PainmongerPainmonger Posts: 58 Match Maker
    I do question the need for Mr. Fantastic to be rebalanced, he's been working just fine since he got his last rebalance & there are plenty of other characters in the tier who could do with some love. Glad to see him as a feeder, though, as well as the two new releases!
  • Punter1Punter1 Posts: 386 Mover and Shaker
    Am I the only one nervous about a Mr. Fantastic rebalance?  I sort of like Stretcho the way he is right now, especially when teamed up with Shuri.

    Of all the characters screaming for a rebalance, Mr F was not one screaming very loud.  He's not great currently but certainly better than a large number of others out there.  Seems weird to shoe-horn a re-balance in just to tie in with a theme week.
  • JHawkIncJHawkInc Posts: 1,687 Chairperson of the Boards
    Yeah, I'm not sure Mr. Fantastic needs a rebalance. Maybe another tweak to fix his interaction with other Fantastic Four members (since that's still lackluster, either needs a buff so it's exciting to team them up, or removal entirely).

    But like, I wouldn't put him on a list for rebalance at all. Not even at the bottom of the list. That's the kind of fix you do when everything is perfect and you're bored and need something to do, you know? (unless someone has a stupidly genius idea, and there's no way to use it with a new character release, maybe?)

    Stoked to see him feeding Silver Surfer! 

    Curious to hear about the character releases, since... you know, we should be getting one this Thursday. They sometimes take weeks off, and sometimes do two back to back (usually good for a 5* and a 4*), so it's "every 2 weeks, most of the time." But still, it'd be nice to have something a tiny bit more concrete. Kinda want to see how they plan to juggle the 5/4/4 pattern (that they usually stick to) with the upcoming Captain Marvel movie.

    Dang It!
    I just champed Mr F to use with Shuri and P4nther :'(

    Get rid of heal.... as noted earlier by @Dormammu , it never has made any sense to me.  If that is what they call a "rebalance" I would be happy.    (I could go for the 'heal self' but the burst heal just does not play into the comic book IMHO)  

    That said, looking forward to World's Greatest Week" !  (And Bonus, I should finally get that Blue for my SS who sits at 0/1/5)

    A Bishop rebalance... err, I mean Mr Fantastic... whatever.

    Delighted by the Surfer feeder. Long ago I sold my Surfer to hang back in 4* tier after some overzealous leveling early on. I've been very slowly rebuilding one (currently at 2/1/3). Glad to get him closer to being champed via Reed.

    Mr F got a rebalance quite a while back, I never use him but will be interesting to see what they do to him this time

    I can only assume they will do something to break is interaction with Bishop

    What's the interaction with Bishop?
  • Tony_FootTony_Foot Posts: 734 Critical Contributor
    Any chance you could rebalance the cack that is Kingpin before a four star no one cares about?
  • HobieCat76HobieCat76 Posts: 70 Match Maker
    I'm very happy about the Mr. F. feeder for Silver Surfer and the impending introductions of God Emperor Doom and Namor to MPQ!  That's super awesome.  However, I'm very apprehensive of this Mr. F rebalance.  I like him fine the way he is.  He's nowhere near over-powered and he's by far not the worst character out there that needs rebalancing (*cough cough* Bruce Banner *cough*).  I guess we'll see what they do to him now.
  • pheregaspheregas Posts: 987 Critical Contributor
    @Brigby While I thank the lucky stars for a new 5* feeder, would you kindly extrapolate on why the devs feel that Mr. F needs a rework? 

    I mean, he was tremendously awful before his rework years ago, but since then, while he's not a powerhouse, he still has great utility in certain circumstances and is decent for a support character.

    Like, he is almost required versus Kaecilius in his current build.  He can hold his own in Crash of the Titans in his current build.  He has utility in many Boss fights due to his tile swap ability.  

    Thanks for any information about his changes that you can provide!

    I can only assume it is Mr. F's healing which would obviously be useful for keeping Bishop around. Intrigued I tried them out in DDQ but couldn't really work out what the deal was if it is beyond that. That could be due to either the enemies being too low or my Bishop only being 3/1/1.

    I wonder if he'll be able to tweak repeater timers using super science? I'm still pitching that power out into the aether lol
