    When does the retro feeder update go into effect? I want to champ my Psylocke, but have other characters I want to champ also.

    I'm surprised nobody got it right, not even the players in reddit.

    Her red passive is crazy. Put her with Kitty/Ultron + R4G and give her some support that let her tank more damage and she will be taking 1 damage every turn. And her active red will hit like a truck.

    She's a 4* and shares two colors with both Kitty and Ultron...it's going to be hard to get her to tank anything with them. You'd also have to get her leveled higher than Rocket because she shares two colors with him.

    I imagine that's why she's allowed to have that red passive -- if she was 5* she'd be way too good.

    In that case, Wong would be good. He puts a set of ~8k strength strikes and he can go Away, letting her tank.

    Alternatively, let Kitty buff those strike tiles and let CW fire her red. 10 turn of buff is ~30k. (4k + (30k * 2))* 1.5 + 30k (from strikes = 111k damage.

    Finally, at long last, Shang-Chi gets a second feeder. I’m guessing the flying part is a reference to her surname.

    *Edited out my ridiculous question.

    It says Psylocke will no longer feed Peggy, just Colleen and Wolfsbane.

    I'm assuming her concentration tile will also reduce her blue power?

    Do her strike power boosts stack with 4puns?

    In your defense, it doesn't actually say that, it just has a different color arrow, and I was confused for a minute too.

    Colleen looks like a good 4* character for 4* players. She'll be good both with Polaris (excellent strike tile synergy) and against Polaris (conditional stun immunity, benefits from the enemy strike tiles Polaris makes). It would be cool if she worked well with Iron Fist and Luke Cage, but both those guys are kind of bad. It'd be fun to try!

    I don't see her being relevant to 5* players. If I'm going to run Kitty/Rocket, or some other strike tile team (??? -- are there any? there's very little good strike tile support at the 5* tier.) I'd much rather have a 3rd with passive damage. Colleen red might be fun, but by the time I got to 9 red it's likely all the enemies would be dead already. She won't tank anything so the reduction won't be worthwhile.

    She seems fun and an op character for the 4* tier.
    Playing with soft capped 5*s she sure will shine.
    By the way, it seems the only character with heroes for hire affiliation is misty knight.

    Get 2 blue cd out and her first red cost 3. Casting 2 blue costs a total of 8aps. Is dealing 111k damage worth it for all these trouble in pve? I think it's worth it.

    Looks good on paper. The Chimichanga support will help fortify tiles

    Good to see each 4* won't automatically feed the next 5*, and definitely good that Shang-Chi's getting a second feeder. Pretty cool.

    What's with her hair? If she's half-Chinese, half-Japanese that hair color seems way too light...

    4★ Black Cat (Master Thief)
    4★ Misty Knight (Heroes for Hire)
    4★ Moon Knight (Marc Spector)
    A bit surprising neither 4★ Luke Cage or Iron Fist are H4H...

    I thought they did, but it's Defenders. Hopefully they update it soon because both of those characters create special tiles

    Then her best pair would be 4* MK as his passive creates strikes and she gets a 180% damage.
    Unless they update IF 4*.

    And/or be reduced by an opposing BSSM or Samurai Daken?

    We Asians love to dye our hair blonde. She probably got hers done in some Chinatown salon.

    Duh, anime hair.
