    His powers scream anti-Karnak and anti-America Chavez to me.

    Critical tiles: Checked
    Seldom fire power: Checked

    The 150% damage is nice.

    3/5/5 for me.

    Using a 5 to counter a 4.....

    Archangel
    Apocalypse
    Killmonger

    Weird.

    This is a pretty cool character with a pretty interesting toolkit. Doubtful meta but hey..... it looks hella fun.

    Wish he locked all crits instead of crits on a match 5, as the AI tends to avoid them when they can make a match 4 instead.

    And another partner for Sinister with the trap spam! Seems they are trying to make traps a thing like Bill/Apoc did for protects. I’m a fan of the attempts at synergy over several releases.

    America Chavez and Karnak is the red hot couple in 4* land. My thinking is that they want to entice 4* players to break open their hoards to deal with this team. It seems like there are complains about Karnak in reddit recently. Even at 1 black cover, America Chavez and Karnak are going to take over 3000 damage every turn. 

    In 5* land, Killmonger doesn't seem to counter any meta teams. The closest team is probably iHulk/Okoye. The rest of them love spamming powers.

    I remember in one of the 5* character blogs,  they recommended a 3* character as partner.
  • Daredevil217Daredevil217 Posts: 2,834 Chairperson of the Boards
    Damage per trap seems to drop at 5 colors on purple. Typo?
  • DyingLegendDyingLegend Posts: 833 Critical Contributor
    hold up Legion is a 4 star and Killmonger is a 5 Star?!!?!?!? seems a bit off but they are allowed to do whatever they want.....
    Overall looks decent. Once i have him fully covered next year or so i'll give my honest opinion on him.

    I don’t know about whether he would counter or not, but gritty doesnt tend to spam powers. They use them when available, but it’s not their main deal.

    i love the artwork though, yet another flawless win for the art team
  • BorstockBorstock Posts: 1,378 Chairperson of the Boards
    I don't know if he's meta, or if he's a counter to the current metas, but it's pretty easy to see where he could be a BEAST in certain situations. Interesting character.
  • wymtimewymtime Posts: 3,438 Chairperson of the Boards
    He looks interesting.  I like the fact that he steals AP or does damage.  I am almost thinking pair him with Apocalypse at 5,3,5 so you can use Apocalypse red.  I love that his Purple hits hard with or without trap tiles on the board.  This might be the 2nd Purple in 5* land (Professor X number 1).

    for red compared to black I am not sure what is better. My thought is will the 150% match damage be worth the 5 covers when the are better active reds in the game.  It will add around 1.5k damage per tile which is strong but would you rather do an additional 800-900 damage and let black generate red AP for IHulk or Apocalypse.

    tough choice so I won’t know until in game but my initial thought is 5,3,5.  
  • jackstar0jackstar0 Posts: 1,258 Chairperson of the Boards
    I don't see his use, but I also don't want to fight him when they add him to a Simulator node.

    Another fake-Marvel/MCU character...
  • ZootSaxZootSax Posts: 1,792 Chairperson of the Boards
    ...so, Black Panther's Clash of the Titans just got a whole lot harder?  He looks solid all around on first glance.

    The AI only matches straight 5s, they won't match 'L' or 'T' shaped 5s.

    Remember that Okoye is a 5* also...    why? who knows. Seems MCU chars are more likely to get the 5* treatment.
  • LoosieLoosie Posts: 229 Tile Toppler
    Interesting concept playing around with Crits like that.
  • ammenellammenell Posts: 707 Critical Contributor
    not sure about his kit, but I'm going to break my hoard for apoc and just wanted to wait if the next 5 is better than yelena - and they release one of my favorite mcu villains, I'm all in.

    first partners I can think of are sinister to spam traps (i don't even know if sinister works that way) and karnak with America, but there is a lot overlap
