Black Bolt PVP Partner

I'm sure this should go into the Character Discussion but everyone lives in General Discussion (including me) so I put it here.

It took me a LONG time but finally champed Black Bolt. Now, I have no idea who he works best with in PVP. I have all the metas (except IH) champed and some of the older 5* (but not many).

Any and all thoughts are greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Gritty or okoye to boost his black damage. Gambit although not as strong as he use be the first red cast will be stronger if bb has put charged tiles out already

    You can use him with Thorkoye if you want...the passive dmg from charged tiles isn't bad. But the randomness and unreliability means he lives pretty far down the list.

    If you're looking at pick-2 then Okoye is sort-of OK.

    Storm and Bolt can work pretty well together. Also Gambit and Bolt. Neither are a meta team, obviously, and both will be targeted but can be fun to mess around with early on.

    I like him with 5torm and Okoye.

    Okoye boosts his dmg and Storm nullifies the RNG shenanigans that prevents his passive from firing after the AI removes your charged tiles.

    **Mod note: Moved to Character Discussion forum. The mod team encourages the use of the official character thread for inquiries like these. While I understand some of the older character threads don't get much activity, it does help to keep information and discussion centralized, making it easier for users to find information on characters.

    Unfortunately we can't merge threads anymore so I will leave a comment in the official Black Bolt character discussion thread with a link to this thread.

    I heard Blackbolt's best friends are 5* Gambit and Storm.

    I wonder if 5* Storm + Worthy Cap wouldn't be a good pairing for him
