Deadpool (Spirit of Vengeance)

5-Star Rarity 

Affiliations: Heroes

  
"Deadpool was hired to eliminate a popular taco truck vendor. But when he arrived to do the deed, he was swayed by their delicious “Hellfire” Tex-Mex and decided to spare them instead. It was then that Deadpool’s mysterious client appeared: Mephisto!
Due to Mephisto’s Hellfire chillies, the vendor found new success and celebrated by donating free food to the community. But charity wasn’t part of the deal; the price had to be paid. In a rage at Deadpool’s mercy, Mephisto forced him to take on the Spirit of Vengeance! Now, he spreads hellfire and delivers punishment along with his fellow Ghost Riders (that is, when they aren’t bickering)."

    First as a was reading the powers I heard Ryan Reynolds voice in my head.  

    His black is a little confusing and could be good, could be great, could be too expensive with all the AP used.

    red looks simple but good especially if you can stun IHulk.

    blue also looks like a really good passive especially with Okoye or Apocalypse.

    overall you have been Wade, you have been measured, and you have been found wanting!!

    @IceIX Do the black power variants stack, or can I pick one variant boost specifically?
  • PiMacleodPiMacleod Posts: 914 Critical Contributor
    huh.  looks fun.  I like how the black power is nice and cheap, and has add ons for a little extra.  cool stuff.

    Plus, the CP store have "Ghost..." and "Pepper..." as the other 5*s is a nice touch.  Thumbs up.

    His special store is just awful with Robbie Rayes/Pepper Potts (Rescue) even if it is thematic. Sadly there is zero reason to draw from it.
    With no healing and low health I worry he will die very fast since he will tank a lot of colors due to his high match damage. He might not come into his own until match damage power creep makes him stop tanking.

    P.S. The wording on the Red power at L4 is a big confusing. The initial wording says it only recreates itself if you match/destroy. At L4 it seems to indicate it recreates itself regardless of how it's matched or destroyed? Is that true or is it still only if you match/destroy? It's a big difference obviously.

    My 3/2/2 Ghost Rider, 2/2/3 Rescue, and completionist persona might disagree with you there...

    One question: does Okoye's damage boost count as "her" damage, or does it count against whoever fired the power that it boosted?

    Is lost in space a new PVE event? Or is it the spidey 2099 one, because I swear that was lost in time, not space
  • jp1jp1 Posts: 790 Critical Contributor
    Love the artwork

    A+ on that alone
    Agreed. Thank goodness this is such a step forward from Negasonic. The jury is still out on the kit, I really wanted him to be just devastatingly good...but, at least he may be useful.

    I’ll be chasing as always.

    I think it is like Fury’s old yellow.  If you have the AP for it it fires if you don’t have the AP it does not.
  • BorstockBorstock Posts: 1,448 Chairperson of the Boards
    That black has the potential to be absolutely devastating. Holy moly.
    Red's okay, mostly for the stun. A red stun is kind of nasty.
    Blue feels like a combination of 4* Carol's team hit in reverse and GED's siphon. Sneaky good.
    He's not going to define the meta, simply because he doesn't do any boosting, but he could be a real powerhouse 2nd or 3rd. I like him a lot.
  • AnonAnon Posts: 1,160 Chairperson of the Boards
    I'm loving that Blue!
  • OmegasedOmegased Posts: 124 Tile Toppler
    with the Black, is it possible for them to resolve out of order? 

    For example, if I want "Fajitality" to proc, do I need

    6 black, 3 purple

    OR do I need

    6 black 3 yellow, 3 green, 3 purple?


    depending on the above he looks like a pretty strong kit.

    I'm feeling 5/5/3.

    Was looking meh until I got to the blue passive.  Now I am thinking he is in the  solid -> very good range.
    57k health is getting to be squishy in the current meta.  And he has very high match damage so he will tank a lot unless you play him with overleveled teammates or modern 5*s.
    His black is interesting, but mostly more trouble than it's worth.  It will have some niche uses like penance stare.  But most of the best strats in the game focus on minimizing enemy damage.  This is especially true in the hardest nodes in cl10 and against the very best PvP teams because the current meta is so big on massive, passive damage starting as soon as turn 2.  I can also see some scenarios where I want to use the base black, but would prefer not to drain green/yellow/purple ap.  Is that even possible?
    Red is a perfectly competent red nuke, PLUS stun.  Stun on a red is super valuable as there are many good red batteries.  He will be the second best 5* stunner, especially if you use him with some board control.
    The blue is very interesting.  The first real ap theft passive power we have seen in a long time (and the last one was black cat, right? They have been leery of direct ap theft for a while now; since Loki's rework and the hood meta.).  It can definitely be exploited with the right partners and against the right teams.  Although I don't know if it is quite strong enough/fast enough to become meta.
    I can see some potential uses for him with a good board control partner who can steal enemy ap with targeted matches or ensure that the stunning cd is always matchable.  So solid, but unlikely to be OP character.  Well done Demi!

    Be interesting to get more info how the black works.

    Say you use black and have enough attack power in green, yellow, purple, will it fire off each power listed under all 4 colors, or do you have to pick which of the green/yellow/purple you want to use in addition to the black basic ability. 

    Red says if you match or destroy the tile it recreates itself, so I'm assuming if the enemy matches/destroys then bye bye tile. You still get ok damage and a small stun for 8 AP, not terrible. Power obviously gets a little better if you're able to keep matching/destroying for more stun potential on the initial 8 red AP cost.

    Blue sounds ok'ish. Additional passive damage is nice, and any AP you're able to steal. Sure there will be a lot of times you won't want to match the tile that is the targets strongest color if you're chasing a different color to power up a another characters ability. I can also see it being pretty handy if you're actively trying to deny the targets strongest color,  dealing damage and stealing 1 AP the target may really need. 

    As others have mentioned the high match damage means he may tank more often that you'd want him to and make it easier for PVP teams to down him quickly. I'm also getting sick of each new release seemingly having higher and higher match damage. I don't see the point to keep upping match damage. It wouldn't be so bad if they went back and buffed older characters match damage and do some tuning on their abilities, but to continue to keep this power creep going is troublesome.

    I think you can choose which food to serve for your opponent if you have enough additional ap of that colour. I'm surprised to see no true heal for 5* Deadpool. His power has a little anti-iHulk built into it. What's more, it's only 6 black ap for 150% vengeance.

    His red power reminds me of Daredevils' green or blue power and 5* Ghost Rider's red power which stuns opponent too.

    His build is an easy choice: 5/5/3.

    Can we stop making up fake characters and just focus on comic/movie characters that are still not in this game.

    Odin the All-Father
    Adam Warlock
    Ultron
    Mantis
    Hank Pym Ant-Man
    Richard Rider Nova
    Cosmic Ghost Rider
    For examples 
    all aren't in this game but we got fake Samurai Daken and now Ghost Rider Deadpool

    I don’t know about an anti IHulk.  Now he will one shot IHulk once he is the last character standing but typically that’s not that hard.  As for abyssal Blades the issue is you have to keep IHulk in front to keep stunning him.  If you kill him on the match he will un stun.

    I like him but don’t think anti IHulk is right.  His black could be a counter punch to Professor X or even Onslaught after a couple of cascades.
