    Hmmm...it is very curious that Dr. Strange is being run as a 5E just 2 weeks after his last one.

    He might be....hungry for attention, maybe?

    Edit:  Also, seeing Talos rewards, then Cloak, in PVE offers more evidence that we might be on an LLLVV cycle again for now.
    Somebody really should feed that poor wizard. He’s looking thin. And it takes real energy to summon forth the mystical powers of the Hoary Hosts of Hoggoth!

    Anyone know when OML will be featured as a 5* Essential again?  I think the next time he appears it should be his red cover which would be #13 for me.  I've been stuck on 12 for nearly two years and at this point told myself I would just buy it in HfH but they never feature him.  Frustrating

    He should be coming up very quickly.  Possibly after the next run of the 3 Latests, or maybe the time after that.

    Red should be next, as you say.  I need a red (4/5/2) but probably will to save my CP for more Latest pulls as I hope to finish a 5/5/1 Doom.  Eventually my XFW will finish off OML (25 more to go) and he's double fed, so it won't be too long if I stick it out.

    I feel your pain. My oml is 5-5-1. My xforce wolvie is at 313. I have colossus, patch, xforce, and oml set as bonus heros.

    Well there is a possibility we might get something to do with Phoenix (obviously not a feeder) when X-Men: Dark Phoenix comes out because Marvel have been doing some publicity around it, even if it just having her as a featured essential.

    Yeah, 3/21. But there probably won’t be another movie with Thor in it for a couple years, so a rerun can be excused right now. 

    But....no 5 Thor means more PVP pain and more Gritty teams out. Oh well.

    In modern-day continuity, the supervillain the Mad Thinker reactivated the Torch to have him battle the Fantastic Four, deactivating him when the Torch refused to kill the heroes.[13]A storyline in the Avengers, dealing with the secret background of its android member, the Vision, gradually revealed that the Torch's body had been found by a renegade robot named Ultron 5 and modified to become the Vision, his mind wiped of past memories and his powers altered with the coerced help of the Human Torch's original creator, Phineas Horton. The seed of this idea was planted by artist Neal Adams and worked out in detail in The Avengers #133–135 (May–June 1975) by writer Steve Englehart.

    A later story by Roy Thomas in What If? #4 (Aug. 1977), planted the suggestion that the Vision was actually made from a second android created by Horton, named Adam II. This freed up the Human Torch for a possible revival. This was followed up by John Byrne, who had the Scarlet Witch revive the Torch in Avengers West Coast, seeking answers about her husband, the Vision, and to help Ann Raymond, wife of Tom "Toro" Raymond. In these stories, it was determined that the Vision had been made by Ultron out of the Torch's spare parts, which explained their physical similarities.

    So SHIELD Simulator is offering a Ronin cover at the 2000 point mark, even though that character hasn't been added to tokens this season.  Is that a first?
    Not that I'm complaining: I've got more Thanos covers than Ronin due to the alliance event during the Thanos release.

    Wouldn't you have more Ronin covers because you get 3 (personal) + 1 (alliance), compared to just 3 (alliance) for Thanos?
  • jameshjamesh Posts: 1,380 Chairperson of the Boards
    Nope.  I'm not part of the 1% of players who lose out from alliance events.

    Most likely; it feels like an error to me, in fact.  This isn't the first time that a season had two new characters and the second one debuted too late for tokens.  In those cases the second person just sat out the following season.  I feel like there was a delay in the release schedule thanks to Endgame and everything got thrown off. They probably set up the schedule of changes for the upcoming season early (who to reward etc), may have put Ronin in the 2K spot for Sim figuring he'd be released in time, then perhaps forgot to revise that.
