    When does Kamala enter latest legends ?
    Most likely on Monday 6/27, unless they do something weird because of the delay last rotation. But I wouldn’t expect that; I’m sure they want to get back to the regular rotation.

    and those affiliated through things like symbiotes

    That's why Carbage/Carnage were brought up.

    5* usually gets rotated in the same week as the release of new 5*. For example, our next 5* release is on June 30. So, KK should be in around 26/27.

    Hound, I took that to mean that's why the non-dark avengers variants of Venom were included. I believe it was intended to explain why 4* Venom and Agent Venom were included; because they are Venom variants and 1* is a dark avenger.

    Maybe you need to update your app. There was a push for update today. I don't see Carnage nor Carnage in the list. Maybe they are part of essential nodes? I've never paid attention to this before, so I'm just guessing.
    They could be playable but not boosted.

    Feels like Scorpion is going to be doing a lot of heavy lifting this event.

    Carnage isn't a dark avenger so I don't know why we'd expect him to be included.

    Carnage would affiliated via Symbiotes from Venom.

    But it looks like that isn't happening.

    I knew there was a reason I kept a full roster. Looking forward to seeing what there options are.

    Personally I'm ok with it, that's what a broad roster is for.
    The Shang crowd will not like it.
    I'm both OK and do not like that they made this a Dark Avengers Heroic event.

    ...that does actually sound like me. :smile:

    @DAZ0273 see my other comment. I believe yall are misunderstanding the provided rationale for why 4* Venom and Agent Venom are included. Taking the quote out of context is likely what is the root of confusion.

    The non-DA venoms are included because of the relationship through the symbiote, despite those versions not being affiliated at all with Dark Avengers. This is also why 5* Daken and Yelena are included despite not being DA; they are variants of a DA character. Carnage is not DA in any variant we have.

    Nobody likes the Dark Avengers, they suck. They were officially voted "Most unlikely to be invited to a Supervillain Team-Up Crossover" at the last Villains R US Conference.

    Apart from 5* Yelena who is fun at parties and brings the hot sauce. Actually does she have a Dark Avengers affiliation? Also why can't we use 4* Juggernaut? He is just a version of Juggs who got a job at a hardware store.

    @jsmjsmjsm00
    That sounds logical with OMD and Yelena in. 

    I can't wait to play my first Heroic event.  :p

    So is 1* Venom a Dark Avenger or is Mac Gargan a Dark Avenger? Or are they both? Does that mean that anybody who gets the symbiote immediately gets recruited to the Dark Avengers even if they don't want to? And if it is a case of both then where is 4* Juggernaut?!?!? Actually - Ragnarok is a clone of Thor so...I am going down a path to madness here...

    1* juggs is not DA so, again, I don't get the talk about 4* juggs "missing".

    I believe 1* Venom and 4* scorpion are treated as the same character in-game. You can't have both on the same team (I believe), hence why scorpion is included in this list. 

    Ragnarok is a different character than Thor; they can both be played on the same team.

    So, just with the information provided from the featured list and plus some symbiotes, does anyone know any good DA synergies?
    Well I say 'good', the best average team we could possibly make  :cold_sweat:

    It will be interesting to see how the side nodes scale up on days 2-4. Normally they scale based on your roster strength so 5* champ rosters see L300+ side node enemies.

    If players are using 2/3* Dark Avengers to fight L300+ side nodes expect to see a lot of complaints.

    3* Bullseye, Scorpion, Agent Venom should be a solid team since you have 5 active powers. Equip Chewie support in case you don't have any specials for 3* Bullseye to destroy.

    Scorpion feeds Purple to 3* Bullseye so I'd run him at 5 in the other 2 colors and use his Green.
    3* Bullseye uses Purple to destroy specials and definitely to down enemies to fill the board with strikes
    Agent Venom is there as a Red/Yellow/Black outlet.

    You can of course swap out Bullseye for a 5* like Yelena and use Scorpions own powerful purple. The real issue is there is no Blue outlet other than Rags. My guess is this was on purpose so players leave Blue for Gargantos.

    Probably more Agent Venom.
    You don't exactly want to wait for Garg to fire any abilities and boss!Garg with his 3 AP black (if they keep that the same as last time) will punish special tiles. Which kinda makes Scorpion's green and red useless here. So, Scorpion only has his purple, nothing else. Agent Venom has all his colors.

    Okay. Apparently, we got loaners, but no announced heroic-style restrictions.
    Am a bit relieved (would prefer Heroic-restrictions not applying to a boss event but more being it's own little side event), but very very confused. Anyone know what's going on?

    Edit: Ohhh, okay, other characters just aren't greyed out.

    I used OMD/Venom Brock/Green Goblin. Beautiful Synergy but it would be dangerous against Shuma in late rounds.

    I dont have a high level OMD, my GG isn't fully covered. I'm trying to get through this even with 5Yelena, the 4Venoms. This is a nightmare with the restrictions, permanent damage of Gargs and how tough he'll be later rounds.
