I think AW is the kind of character that you have to champ at high levels to reap the fruit of your labor.
Judging by the comments here anyone would say he is bad. In the opposite, on his pvp just on his AoE running with Ihulk the battle is pretty fast.Sometimes without being used to the enemy team takes a lot of damage and after thinking a bit the player realizes it was him.

It's odd people don't see him as meta, clearly he will be.Most of these characters without a team around them that aren't okoye or Thor aren't going to be meta creating. IMO those were the last two meta creating characters released. You can put almost anyone with them to work around.Since those two, there have been some strong characters that are meta affecting like Kitty, BRB apoc, charles, ihulk, but they all need to be built around or have specific partners to shine. (apoc less so than most others) Will he be pve meta, probably, but I don't he shakes the top of the top, will he be pvp meta, definitely another solid addition, especially in shield training.
fight4thedream said:Adam, on the other hand, requires the player to collect black AP in order to get his AoE off meaning, the player has to pursue black AP if they want to keep it going, meaning less chance to collect TU tiles and yellow. Additionally, his AoE comes at the expense of his own health. He loses the match damage buff if he sinks below 50% health which means the player will simply target him first to reduce the buff if they perceive it as being a legitimate threat. Finally, and perhaps most notably he has a lot of color overlap with the two best attack boosters in the game, Okoye and Apocalypse. To put it simply for pick 2 PvP events: iHulk/Okoye > Adam/Okoye
In PVE I wonder if he would actually be a better third than Thor for Hulkoye. The passive yellow collection you get from Thor massively speeds up okoy, So you’re leaning entirely now on active AP collection for gathering team up and black. I think I might bring Ghostpool for his incidental passive damage and active black with AOE before I brought Warlock, but again I need to see him champed to really know how he feels on my roster.
AW high match damage makes me wonder whether he will pair well with Killmonger. AW passive adds additional 113% match damage. This corresponds to 1845 (yellow), 1640 (purple) and 1436 (black).KM passive adds additional 150% match damage in enemy strongest colour. That’s an additional of 4612 (yellow), 4100 (purple), 3590 (black). So match 3 damage would be 13,836 (yellow), 12,300 (purple) and 10,700! This is quite crazy! Though the caveat is that it must match the enemy strongest colour. Too bad I don’t have a champ AW to test out my theory-crafting....
