    So a blue hit that makes crits. A red that gives targeted destruction of basic tiles, or area destruction if you target a crit tile. And a black passive that boosts match damage, with a funky delay mechanic, a protect tile while you don't have the damage boost, and a bonus crit when the switch happens.

    Looks like a straightforward beatstick, could be fun. Still curious what the "Team Family" bit means. I'm guessing the Captain Britain guesses were wrong, and the Inhumans or Summers family guesses were more accurate, so the character either has Inhuman or X-Men affiliation.

    Could be fun paired with America and someone to help on defense like Rogue, Juggs or MEHulk. Criticals going off everywhere to cause a lot of havok. ;)
  • LoosieLoosie Posts: 248 Tile Toppler
    Sounds like this one will be a fun character. (which also means it will be annoying to play against ;) )

    Run at 4/5/5 and add this character to Worthy Cap/5 Hawkeye.  Hunt 5* teams :)

    Blue looks like a cheaper version of MEH purple so I like that.  Black looks interesting with the critical tiles.  Red looks like it will end up to be a level 3 power.  It reminds me of Bullseye green.  One reason I think it will be fine at level 3 is if can destroy 4 tiles you can still create a strong cascade to make matches you want.  With bullseye green there have been plenty of times I am searching for a random tile to destroy that I just don’t need so 4 specifies tiles is more than enough.

    Looks like a nice support character can’t wait to use them on 4* essential nodes in PVE

    Easily 3/5/5. I think the first character that comes to many's minds is Chavez. This character also makes a rainbow team with MEH.

    This character is straightforward and I can only say I'm looking forward to playing with this character.

    You're thinking too hard.  Queen Elizabeth exists in the Earth-616 Marvel Universe, so this is clearly going to be her.

    Given the clue, is there any chance we're finally getting a 4* Psylocke (Uncanny X-Force)? She's Captain Britain's sister, and the power descriptions could line up with her kit.

    Im thinking it might be the new Captain Britain version of Psylocke. She’d still have her X-men affiliation, but would better fit the Windsor thing

    Honestly, if it weren't for the fact that he already has a 4* version, I might have guessed Luke Cage. Whoever it is, def looks fun, but the final verdict is still in the numbers.

    I'm gonna giggle if the boosted match damage puts them in bishops crosshairs.

    Oh noes, what will 4* players do if that happens?!?!? I guess there are only about another 90 characters to choose from... ;)

    Yup. But it's no fun when a new character comes out that is already countered by a meta character. Like every 5* after bishops release.... ;)

    Maybe this character is Shard and she is immune to stun because she is Bishop's sister? ;)

    We have the power descriptions. There is no stun immunity. ;). Stun is also only part of what bishop does. :)

    Ah well, you can't win 'em all! Back to the other 89 it is! :D

    Cheap crit tiles in a 4*? Always gotta be thinking about the 5*s that will take advantage of that with their high match damage. (similar to Chavez)

    HE/Worthy definitely come to mind in Sim.

    Geez, every is missing the obvious team-up.

    Put this person with Bishop and a 5 with good match dmg.  Let the other team cascade and Mr. Broken gives you 30 AP to fire blue 3 times.

    Maybe use BRB and get more blue from all the Protects being matched in the insane cascades.

    Match over.
    You are no fun.
