    There's gotta be a Purple Man who isn't specifically that version of awful. Maybe from a cartoon or something? They could probably just use that one and get away with it.

    They could just do the one from Jessica Jones season 1 and call him Kilgrave instead of Purple Man.

    The gross stuff was pretty implied in that season as I recall, I'm not sure there is a way around it given that dude's whole deal. But maybe they could give him a symbiote or make him a purple dinosaur and just create a new version that doesn't have that in his backstory.

    Purple Dinosaur - that would just be Barney, right?

    Pretty much, yeah. Or maybe Grimace, though he is technically a giant spider like Shelob. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=97YXbNaAyzA

    Not only do I want a 5* Purple Man, I want 3* Purple Children.

    Purple Girl (Kara Killgrave) was a member of Alpha Flight so there is your 3* version.

    Red Skull

    I'd love to see Red Skull with special Hydra tiles

    I'm still waiting for some crazy Mojo PvE event!

    Shocker, Jigsaw, Mojo, Spiral, Wrecking Crew, Hobgoblin, et al. There is a huge list of enemies that we could get.

    Honestly I don’t care who we get I just care about mechanics and what is fun.

    Red Skull. And the Old Man Logan version.

    Honestly on the topic of Purple Man. There is quite possibly an actual 5 star Symbiote Purple Man. Apparently it's the premise to the newest Venom series. So 3 star Purple Man, 5 star Symbiote does work. Just depends whether they do anything with this new "Purple King" they keep mentioning.

    I get people aren't a fan of 5 star Symbiotes but I'm atleast waiting to see if they do something cool with the design. Or whether the writing for it is good.

    Red Skull

    No matter what Red Skull should have been playable since this game came out more than 10 yrs.

    Red Skull is tough. He's basically das fuhrer. Certainly makes him problematic.

    He's in every other marvel mobile game though. I thought maybe they decided later he was problematic and weren't allowing him in newer games and mpq missed the cut off before he was no longer allowed, but then he's in the new marvel snap game that just came out last year.

    So I have no idea what's keeping him out of this one particular marvel mobile game. Maybe just because he hasn't been in anything recent that they could use him as a promotional character. Captain America's biggest foe certainly seems like he should be a lock for a roster slot.

    I think it makes him a problem if he's not got "Evil super villain" written in his bio. He is certainly relevant to his time but I don't think he's a going to be a gateway to the extreme far right for thousands of MPQ players. There is an argument that by recognizing history we should ensure such things never happen again. If we pretend bad things don't happen it's often too late to recognize it and stop them when they do. He'd need to be added sensitive to that context I think.

    Probably best way to do Red Skull is to give him his big goofy Sleeper Robots and an evil mastermind sort of power and keep it as 60s Marvel as possible.

    I have no idea what's keeping him out, either. And I assume all the other games agree with your assessment for why he can be in their games. But seriously, what else could it possibly be? Is there any other justification for his absence at this point? I can't think of one.
