    5/3/5.


    18k damage for 9 ap is beastly.

  • The rockettThe rockett Posts: 1,959 Chairperson of the Boards

    Great. Now another partner for bishop giving him blue charged tiles.

  • thedarkphoenixthedarkphoenix Posts: 494 Mover and Shaker

    Okoye and bishop have a new friend.



    A lot of potential here.


    The CPU won't play him well but it's kinda hard to go wrong with the damage from blue.

  • AnonAnon Posts: 1,147 Chairperson of the Boards

    Seeing as his Green destroys attack tiles, is he supposed to be a Carbage counter or something? I'd rather it destroyed Strike tiles to assist against Kitty.


    Granted by the time he gets to 12 Green ap its pretty much over anyway.

  • Kingart813Kingart813 Posts: 43 Just Dropped In

    Yes!!!! 5* star featured event!!

  • DarthDeVoDarthDeVo Posts: 2,153 Chairperson of the Boards

    Sooooooo... I'm assuming that since he's in progression for Hearts of Darkness that means he's required for that event.


    Before he's in Latest or the Power Overwhelming store.


    Shards in placement/progression are nice, but they won't equal a full cover.


    Hold on to your wallets, folks, looks like Alex $ummer$ is taking a page from Profe$$or X... 🙄

  • Daredevil217Daredevil217 Posts: 2,898 Chairperson of the Boards

    I think he’s supposed to be played WITH Carbage (despite overlap). Carnage creates enemy attacks. Alex blows them up for bonus damage. To bad the power cost is way way too high. 12? Really?? Also he does get to pop strikes and protects at higher covers.

  • AnonAnon Posts: 1,147 Chairperson of the Boards

    Oop, missed that last part. Regardless the power costs too much. Like I said, Gritty will murder him before he gets that much. And popping protects against Beta Ray Bill is ill advised.

    Red and Blue are great though.

  • wymtimewymtime Posts: 3,473 Chairperson of the Boards

    @IceIX can you give some clarity around when the new 5* will go into Latest Legendary tokens. There has been some confusion with the last 4 characters going into latest packs

  • ThaRoadWarriorThaRoadWarrior Posts: 4,589 Chairperson of the Boards

    since it prioritizes fortified tiles, does it 1-shot them or just break the fortification? @IceIX

  • Daredevil217Daredevil217 Posts: 2,898 Chairperson of the Boards

    That’s my assessment as well. What stops him from being truly great is the lack of any passives. Obviously Bishop will make him broken, but I’m really hoping a nerf for him is on the table with all the great blue abilities that have dropped consecutively (Bill, Sinister and now Havok).

    A fun team if you spec 5 green and ignore red would be to play with Gambit/Storm. Full coverage, and Gambit can fuel his own red to pop charged tiles or have Havok convert for his green AOE. I just wish they’d remove the stupid power block already.

  • ThaRoadWarriorThaRoadWarrior Posts: 4,589 Chairperson of the Boards

    I’m thinking Carbage/BRB/Havok would be solid as well, but you’re likely using that BRB green over this one.

  • wymtimewymtime Posts: 3,473 Chairperson of the Boards

    I am feeling 5,3,5 pairing with Professor X and Storm in Sim. Fire Blue to fire red and then Storms black. Any match will be awesome.


    also will pair well with Okoye where his blue and red will be nasty


    his green is just expensive for 12 green. At level 5 it will remove 3 tiles but overall it is just not great. It has the classic does too much of everything but not great at one thing.

    I wish that green had just been a passive of some kind. This balance of cost/benefit is approaching 1* Iron Man with that one way out of alignment power you’ll never use.

    i do like him with Professor X + Okoye though. You have Aoe for relatively cheap on 2 different colors, and as an X-Man you get some of that X buff.

  • bluewolfbluewolf Posts: 4,910 Chairperson of the Boards

    @IceIX

    I realize 2 AP is not a huge amount to need, but if you don't have 2 red AP for example and you use Radiation Absorption, can you choose the green/AOE ability? Or is that locked out in that scenario?

    And vice versa for not having 2 green and wanting to use the single target nuke.

  • fmftintfmftint Posts: 3,653 Chairperson of the Boards

    Remember when there was 6 weeks between 5s?

  • Daredevil217Daredevil217 Posts: 2,898 Chairperson of the Boards

    I also have to say, that store... that’s like a store made just for me. Literally the two best Classics I don’t have champed (according to my own character rankings).

    Bolt is 5/1/1 with about 2.5 covers in shards. So if I could pull 4 non-green I could finish him, or with 3 I could finish him when he’s essential next.

    Surfer is 1/3/5 and is 4 Mr. F away from a cover in shards. So again, 3 non-black covers could get him champed as well.

    And of course it’d give a head start on Havok. Seems almost perfect and could be a redemption opportunity for going 10% in almost 300 pulls today in Latests.

    I’m nervous about splitting pulls and taking away from Latests though, especially after going said 10% and fearing a repeat.... double especially if they are going to start pumping out the characters faster. On the other hand, I likely won’t see a better opprotunity to finish these two. Decisions, decisions....

  • VhailorxVhailorx Posts: 5,064 Chairperson of the Boards

    Green seems underwhelming. 12ap for a Max of ~10k aoe is not great.

    But red is good, and blue is useful.


    Red is definitely a total kick to SS's curiously blank groin. Only 2ap for more about 60% more efficiency, and more certainty for the charged tile color too. This is a pretty good power, though there is a lot of competition in red.

    Blue is also very good. Just 7ap for a decent nuke or a decent aoe, plus some AP arbitrage too.


    5/3/5 seems the obvious choice. Also interesting to note that he has pretty high match damage, but is relatively squishy for a new 5*.
