    He’s a heroic monster associated with living and mortality. I know who I reckon he’s feeding.

    Looks really good. Black is a direct Polaris counter.

    Is he going to be a feeder?
    Please tell me there's a connection to Hulk...

    He seems more of an anti-Polaris, and maybe anti-Throg, depending on what kind special tiles he acts on.

    Nice.  Love the art too, glad they went classic comic book with it.  He sounds decent but not anything major.  Good addition.
    if he’s a feeder, I could mayyybe see some surface level way to connect him with Sinister, since they are both pale and working towards weird science in their own ways.

    we’ve had worse connections, so maybe, hopefully.  
    Edit: oh just saw the iHulk feeder speculation.  I’d be happy with that too

    Yes, he can be a real asset against Medusa/Polaris teams ! Interesting !

    I was nervous about the art before I clicked, but that art is straight fire. Major kudos to whoever worked on that.
    I like the power set. I wish he was a five. This is a legit specials killer.

    Match 1 special and remove 3 more? This guy is going to suck (pun intended) when he shows up in a PvE challenge node. Worst challenge node ever: 5* Carnage + 4* Morbius + 5* Black Widow?

    I'm assuming that removing a special tile doesn't count as destroying it (thus BRB gets no AP), but please tell me if I'm wrong here.

    At first blush I'm running him at 5/3/5 vs special tile makers and 3/5/5 vs non.

    If special tiles isn't limited to asd tiles, then he totally neuters most minions too.

    He sounds pretty solid.

    While i'm tired of seeing boring 5star, the recent 4s have been so awesome. It really feels like they're trying to create a 4andahalf tier with some of these releases.

    Oh man. If Morbius and Sabertooth make PvP Polaris irrelevant then I better work on my Karnak sooner rather than later

    Other characters treat repeaters and CDs as special tiles along with SAP, but usually not stuff like Eye of Agomatto or Checkov’s Gun. Also web tiles and charge tiles don’t usually count.

    Another good 4 star to shake up game play a bit. Looking forward to this one, and I'd stake the odds of being a IH Feeder  or Sinister as definitely a welcome and fitting addition.

    It would be interesting seeing a Beast vs Morbius match. Morbius matches away one of your special tiles, and removes another three as well, but then Beast counters by giving you three shiny new protect tiles.

    Actually Beast only gives new tiles for ones that are matched away. The extra ones removed by Morbius Black won't be replaced.

    Another great 4*, they've been on a roll. Really nice abilities and tool set that serves a purpose. It's sad  they have released such good 4s and simultaneously such trash 5s. 

    Between his black and cheap blue, he's special tile board wrecking monster.
