    Looks a lot like the boss version.

    I will probably try a bunch of stuff to figure out a way to exploit her blue, and it'll probably be pretty fun, but I just can't see it being worth the effort to exploit it when Kang is better in basically every way for an extra 2ap.

    I think her red will hit quite hard though (can someone do the math?) and I think her yellow might surprise people.

    Hoping the yellow tile creation isn't a typo, since it doesn't have that on the MPQ website.

    The yellow is nice for her, but that's all she has going really. It only works for others if they out-yellow her.

    Still, she's pretty bad and unexciting. 2 of her powers are built around an insta-kill. The whole thing is convoluted and not worth it. It's like Goose's instakill.

    Going to add complex insta-kill to permanent damage to the list of "please stop trying to push these"

    Yea I see yellow a good pairing with Okoye. generate some yellow and hurt/heal. Her Blue seems a challenge but absolutely could be manipulated (Green Goblin, Coulson, etc).

    Bring Carol4* and use her yellow to instantly resolve the blue CD. I would never use red.

    You'd need to get a ton of yellow in one turn to do this. Aunt May will passively eat 4 every single turn to reduce her tile by 1. I think most of our CD reducing shenanigans are yellow powers.

    (PASSIVE) At the start of Aunt May’s turn, if possible, drain 4 Yellow AP and reduce the timer on a random allied Countdown tile by 1.

    You could just fire her blue, and then C4rols yellow in one turn.

    That's true, I was thinking she'd drain 4 yellow every turn no matter what. She only does the drain if a CD exists.

    Still, it's 7 blue + 6 yellow to kill one guy.

    Yea i'd have to see it in action, C4rol could earn more yellow also if May is the strongest on the field.

    either way - not outstanding, not terrible

    The drain drops to 3 at level 3, and 2 at level 5.

    At 550 she'll do 91,206 AOE if all 30 AP can be drained and the power at level 5. Not bad but a lot of work on offense. Might be annoying on defense though 🤷‍♂️

    Pretty close to the boss version.
    The red could basically 1 shot the enemy team with enough ap. I think heimdall vulture shenanigans could get you close to the AP drain mark after about 3 turns?
    The yellow is better than I expected.
    The blue is there I guess.

    Overall she seems to just be an AP vacuum. Medium health, no damage reduction, and very slow. Not too sure we are going to see much of her.

    Her most obvious value seems to be against Omega Red (or iHulk) and their passive AOE when she's teamed with Elektro who will generate lots of yellow a turn for May to passively drain. With her Blue set to 5 covers the timer starts at 7 turns and you'd reduce that by 2 per turn (1 from the passive and one from the turn counter itself) so in 4 turns you'd down an enemy.

    Speaking a bit off the cuff and in total disregard with how game-breaking it could be, I feel that if you manage to summon Galactus, that should basically end the match. I mean the big G literally eats planets for breakfast.

    Honestly...they could have increased the cost on blue by 2 or 3, dropped the CD reduction passive, and had the CD tile just be "you win the game."

    It's borderline, but given the overall power level of the metagame right now, I don't think it's insane.

    Could dust off 1/2 Thor to generate yellow and created cascades for more blue matches. Carol would be great to cast blue and yellow in the same turn, but having fun with her on MM/Coulson team right now. Using Thor and May with a tank is probably the best option. Would say Colossus, but I plan on favoriting and ascending 3* May ASAP to use with Colossus and either Wong or Cyclops.

    Didn’t Cyclops used to have a max on his match damage boost of 280% or something like that? Just at his yellow again and there’s no cap.
