Overpowered 5-star characters?

Does anyone else think that the newer 5-star characters are relatively overpowered compared to classic 5-stars? Namely, the more recent ones have health around 15k-20k average vice 10k-12k for older characters; and match damage for older characters is 150-175 vice 190-220 for newer ones. Powers are generally consistent, but health and match damage is definitely skewed.

    Yes. It's called power creep. It's what the gaming industry uses to keep consumers continuously chasing their new releases, otherwise they would be satisfied with what they already have and stop buying new stuff.

    That said, good mechanics will trump just health and damage. Classics like Thor, Okoye and Kitty are good and will always be despite not having Knull health. And Magento will continue to ride the pine despite being a newer character due to the wonky powerset that contradicts itself.
