    I've got to admit, I never thought I would encounter DEFEAT AUNT MAY! in my gaming adventures. I think this proves we are not in the Prime Universe. :o

    Which one of us hasn't wanted to smack an old lady around?

    Have the costume.

    All options for Supports from Heroic placement are R4 already for me.

    Vic is terrible.

    The clue for the next 3/5 is “Original Widow…” that definitely fits, so I'm guessing that Golden Oldie will be the 5* version

    For the 3* version, who knows? Anyone know any other Aunt May variants? I only know about the "Herald of Galactus" thing. Wasn't Franklin Richards involved in that somehow?

    They seem to be giving the previously released 5* as the reward on the following Boss Event. I think we got X-23 last event, Hunter b4 that one, and so on…

    *Edit

    Actually, I think it’s 2 events out. I forgot about Phyla-Vell…

    Normal Aunt May is plenty - she once took Spidey out with a vase and has zero boundaries when it comes to busting through teenage boys bedroom doors.

    OK that one has me scratching my head. Aunt May isn't supposed to like "that horrible Spider-man" so why would she do that? Next somebody will tell me there is a Spider-JJJameson

    This one doesn't hate spiders! One of the multiverse Spideys during the spider verse event. Spidey-2099 goes to get her help if I recall correctly

    Twinkies.
    That is how she defeated Galactus in the comics.

    Not Twinkies….Twinkles, delicious sponge cakes that make your day sparkle with joy!

    I'm definitely getting a 70s Hostess ad vibe from them, and I'm here for it.

    In another universe Aunt May is married to Jay Jameson, father of J. Jonah Jameson. Earth-616

    Thoughts on golden oldie?

    Yellow Passive - converts a tile to yellow.
    Ally yellow match heal them; enemy yellow match, deal them damage.

    6 red- drain up to 24 AP. Deal AOE damage increased by 30% for every 2 drained. Then a 3-turn wrath tile foe each person hit.

    Passive- when enemy team destroys a wrath tile, -1 to galactus tile.

    7 blue - 11-turn galactus that downs enemy. Recast lowers the count by 1 and fortifies

    I know a lot will depend on damage numbers. Also- Thor will wreck the the CD.
    Blue passive- if possible at start of turn, drain 4 yellow and -1 to random ally CD.

    Not going to assess a possible playable based on a boss....I mean maybe it would be the same but it seems premature.

    I'm not sure her kit will stay the same.

    But, if it does it would give you a slight reason to bring Abigail (not really though).

    The red could be pretty nasty depending on the numbers,
    The blue is something...So you want to generate a ton of yellow so you can reduce the cd of the blue, and you want to generate a ton of blue to recast the blue and reduce it.
    This seems to be on par with other downing skills...difficult and long time conditions to enact a down.
    The yellow is fine I guess?

    This kit doesn't look to have any obvious partners.
