    It does kinda look that way, though Native American Heritage Month along with that clue did make me wonder if it might be Forge for a second.

    MPQ 264 is out. The clue is

    Home grown smarts....

    And the release note might have spoilt who the next 5* is.

    Home grown smarts hints to Riri who originally built her armour suit in her garage.

    I don’t know if the name drop in the release notes is a spoiler. I do have a 4* labeled new without a picture and a coming soon tag that I cannot acquire. I only know because Daredevil was having difficulty beating up the Iron Fist so I needed to sink some ISO into Shulk. There he was sitting there under unowned characters. The coming soon tag suggests this is a feature and not a bug.

    It looks like bug to me. Those look like typical naming convention for variables (?).

    Isn't the BP2 Namor more linked to being Native American or Central/South American? He is the ruler of Talokan which comes from Aztec culture. I agree however that the clue fits Forge, Riri or even Shuri better.

    I liked the purple squiggle better as a placeholder.

    I’ve heard that’s the angle they’re taking with Namor, yeah, not sure that a retconned fictional mesoamerican culture says “Native American heritage month” to me when other such characters exist, but nothing is perfect I suppose.

    The clue + Wakanda Forever coming out imply Shuri Black Panther to me; if it turns out to be Namor I’d love to know how they got there from that clue.

    Is this 4* a “bonus release,” or an error? Mine shows the name but I won’t say in case it’s a bug.

    I hope it's an error, but with their non-existant updates on the what's new thread it's really hard to say.

    It’s gone now so obviously a glitch. It will be fun when people start guessing the character every time until released though.

    I think this character was one of those on the list along with Black Knight & Deathlok that we got to vote for but could be mis-remembering.

    Maybe we should ask Fight if we have to keep tip-toeing around this subject?

    @fight4thedream - An unreleased 4* character showed up in peoples non-rostered lists in the game presumably as a mistake/glitch - if forum members refer to this character would it be considered a breach of Forum rules in the circumstances? Thanks.

    Edit: OK so I see in another thread that this has sort of been answered and it appears OK as long as we use the spoiler function.

    Yeah that list had a few characters on it, some of them super interesting relative to this game.

    I believe the list was:

    Abomination
    Black Knight
    Blink
    Hercules
    Dani Moonstar
    Night Nurse
    Deathlok

    I might be missing one… I can’t remember if there were 8 (based on re-reading the thread I only see these 7).

    If Abomination is correct (and I think it was, but I’m thinking it was simply a glitch for the next 4… and not implying we’ll be getting an extra/bonus 4), then we’ll have 3 of the 7, which possibly gives more support to some of our initial assumptions that all 7 were on the “future/approved” list and will come sooner or later, but we as fans were the ones who pushed Black Knight to the top of the list.
