    In the HTML editor option days I used to give mine a hard vertical size of 256, but I don’t know the current markdown for it.

    2* Wolverine, lvl 454 base (boosted to 573)




    These numbers don't look totally insane until you consider the fact that he's just a baby champ, at lvl454 pre boost.

    I'm not sure if he's usable (his green is ok, 12 AP for red may as well be infinity, and the heal is...a passive heal) but it does look like the 2* are scaled to insanity.

    Red at 12 is tough, but that is a bomb. My currently boosted to 588 5* Jean Grey only does 46,664 AND under certain conditions feeds the enemy four 2,441 attack tiles.

    Have you gotten 2* Hawkeye and Magneto over to 5 yet? those two are always my go-to for DDQ nodes in the past.

    Magneto isn't very interesting. Mine is lvl499. He has 108k HP. His blue is just tile damage and his purple is unchanged. His red does 43k damage at 4 covers (you don't want it at 5 covers because it goes up in cost).

    Hawkeye lvl478. He has 78k HP. His blue is unchanged. His red is 24k AoE at 5 covers. His purple is 4 2-turn CDs that do 17k each.

    I don't remember what they look like boosted. I think everything scales 2 or 2.5x roughly?

    This is kind of mid tbh. The red is big damage, but for 12 AP you are really stretching to get it fired off.
    I think all of the 2's are going to have pretty similar problems since their designs are all so old, and they all require huge AP investments.

    I thought his green would scale better than that those strikes seem relatively weak compared to his 2* version which are a bit less than 1% of his health while his boosted strikes are less than .7%.
    As a 5 he doesn't look very competitive.
    Maybe Nightcrawler will scale better.

    I finally ascended Echo to 5* level. I wanted to push her because I felt she had a good kit with her match damage boost, she makes a strike tile in front, and she’s a GREAT black tile generator.

    Thanks for this, perfect with Echo's boost week happening. My dupe Echo is 279 and I really want that DD cover before I ascend her though...

    Ascended 4* Spider-man 2099:

    Blue has no change from 4* version.


    Loving that black.

    When I see a PVP battle against some ascended toons, is there anyway to see their stats before I enter the match? I'd like to know what im facing before going in.

    Tapping their name takes you to the roster screen, there you can check everything.

    But that just shows you the stats at base, not god boosted. Unless I'm not understanding what you mean.

    The answer is no, you can't view boosted stats for opposing characters without entering a match.

    You can't view your own boosted stats unless you're on the character select screen.

    Yeah I thought so, it’s a bit rubbish and makes me skip matches if it’s a complete unknown.

    I’m enjoying Melinda May’s boost week.

    Someone was asking about Doop somewhere...hoo boy.

    I'm running him all passive, with Chavez/Colossus/PX, and he's just a straight-up better Colossus. With AC's extra match damage boost adding on, plus PX's extra damage reduction, he's a completely unstoppable tank.

    I am curious, are you guys Ascending everyone (1* and up)? Or just certain characters? I am getting a little overwhelmed with roster spots and such.

    i'm ascending everyone personally, but I'm only max-max ascending 1-3 so far. I've been getting 14 covers for a 4* dupe and then ascendng those, so at least right now, i have a surplus of slots.

    Have you tried Ascended Doop/5ProfX/Ascended Rogue. I guessing that would work well. I'm almost done with Ascending Coulson, then I'm planning on Doop next, but I need 40 covers.
