    1 pull, 1 Starlord . I suppose it’s a compensation for going 0 for 35 in my last LL token pulls.

    This Spiderman is good and has a lot of unrealised potential. Unfortunately, I don't have excess cp to pull for this store.  :'(

    Good to see that something in the game still happens when it's supposed to.

    I didn't have any CP because I spent it all champing Elektra.

    I want Gargantos and I don't have Parker or Star Lord fully covered so I decided to open 35 tokens.

    I started off well with a Blue Gargantos on pull 3 and then back-2-back Star Lords on pull 13 and 14 (taking him to 9 covers). Then I finished off with an 0-21 streak leaving me an awful 3/35 pull rate :(

    What's worse is that the 4* I did get were hot garbage (3 Namors, 2 North Stars etc) other than 1 America Chavez.

    Got a Gargantos already and both SL and Spidey are champed, so I'm happy to skip this store and save up for the next one.

    Sorry for the bad luck, but putting Namor in the same class as Northstar unfair IMO.  Namor isn't bad such as he just came out too late.  Had he launched a year or two earlier, he would have been part of the meta as a 9ap 5+k aoe  (with easy conditions to meet) would have been competitive.  Alas he came out far far too late for that and had to settle for being merely meh.
    Northstar has never been and would never have been any good at all no matter when he released (though come to think of it, he would have fit right right in with original IW and pre-buff xfw as a part of the meta-irrelevant **** 4* trophy tier in early 2014!)

    Dropped around 600 CP, no gargantos pulls but went on an absolute heater in my last 8 pulls, getting 4 starlords and 2 spideys, on top of another starlord earlier in the run. Puts me at 7/24 5* for that run, better than I’d been doing lately but looking forward to not pulling any 5* for the next 100 pulls lol.

    12 Pulls.  2 Spidey (already champed) and 1 Garg.  Stopped after that 1 Garg and am quite happy with the pulls.

    Probably my best pull rate in a long time, out of 36 pulls....

    Your right, he's not Northstar bad (a bottom 20) but he's not in the top 50 4* either. There are probably 50 or so 4* characters who I can occasionally use even if it's just Puzzle Ops stuff for Support Tokens, Kacelius/Apoc boss events or all web tile teams etc. Namor has just no team he belongs on where someone else can't fill that role better. He isn't even a useful farm character because he doesn't feed a 5*. So getting 3 of his tokens out of 31 4* is just an extra slap after the low 5* rate.

    2/8 for 1 Spidey and 1 Gargantos

    Very relieved I can save my cp for later

    Northstar works with Polaris/BRB if that's your thing. On top of that, he can send enemy airborne for 1 turn if the enemy can't be stunned,or you could chain him with Elsa to stun the enemy for another three turns. Northstar is one of the rare few in the game who can send enemy airborne.

    That stinks. I would be up in arms if that would happen to me!

    4 pulls and I got a tentacle trash.
    I think it's better to close the dimensional portal, severing the tentacle for eating it and gaining forbidden power.

    but nova. . .

    Thanks for mentioning Nova because it just reminded me that I used him with 5Hawkeye in Shuma's pvp. The problem with Nova's sending enemy airborne is that you need 12 red aps in the beginning, and then maintain at least 1 friendly black strike tile in order to send enemy airborne for 2 turn. With Hawkeye/Shuma, it was easier to do that. Without them, I'm not sure what teammates you have in mind when you mentioned him.

    Riri William has the best enemy airborne (3 turns), and I used her with Polaris/BRB in the past to deal with Apocalypse. I feel like someone else can do that too but the number of characters who can send enemy airborne are rare.

    Back to Northstar, I remember teaming him with Domino and Agent Coulson with good synergies. I think Northstar gets the bad ratings because he has virtually no ability that can deal decent damage. Still, to me, every character has the potential to be good.

    What's your take on 5-star Wasp?
