    Her first power goes green and then black?

    Her abilities look amazing!

    If I am reading that Purple correctly she is going to create incredible tiles when the repeater goes off (summing up all enemy tiles strength into 1 super tile for her so if the enemy had 3 strikes of strength 1000 each she'd make a single strength 3784 strike (base 784 at 370 + 3x1000) when facing SAP teams (she's gonna wreck Mindless ones).

    If the Blue buffs both match and power damage look out but it's another one of the few powers that can make your characters 5/5/5 which makes it handy and better than Black Bolts (poor Bolt is so bad now) since she increases everything by 55% on offense and defense.

    Even the Green gives automatic multiple damage ticks per turn if you keep her under 4 tentacle tiles making her a potential partner with Okoye.

    I imagine she will be a handful ascended.

    And why do they keep giving us animals!? No more dogs, cats, lizards or mollusks!

    I can't tell if KGB is being sarcastic or not.

    • Green has to be thrown twice before you can even throw black (looks like her only way to create tiles) plus the tick is, yeah.
    • Blue isn't fortified, so I don't think you even need MThor to get a lovely stun off on the opposing team (or accidentally get stunned yourself).
    • And the pink.. has anyone ever seen a 3turn repeater even go off once? I don't know that I have.

    I promise I'm not trying to be negative and KGB I think is probably great! On 2nd readthrough that's just my initial thoughts. I like the concept of all 3 abilities, but they all seem pretty rough. Hopefully I'm wrong though and she ascends like a boss.

    Yup. Green > Black is intended.

    I thought we were done with Spider-verse characters for the rest of the year? Lady Ock is a spider-verse villian? Again why so many spider-man characters and villains.


    Kaine was the last Spider-Man character, but I believe Lady Ock is the last Spider-verse new character outside of a few character rebalances later this year.

    For those who will notice re: No Feeder info... We'll have feeder updates, but we've decided to wait until launch day to release feeder info due to potential last minute changes that have happened in the past.

    So glad to read Mysterio is getting a rebalance
    Thanks @S0kun

    I see her as a very strong partner for strike tile creators.

    Her green power gives a bunch of random extra hits/double dips as a passive, for every cast, and it's cheap.

    Her repeater will probably never go off, but a +50% boost to all tiles can be pretty strong.

    The blue power is indeed kinda bad.

    Please put the feeders in prior to release.
    I hoard shards so I can use them when I know the feeders for upcoming characters.

    I can get double rewards if I can progress past the feeder rewards.

    Obviously, that information is NOT helpful after the release.

    What kind of comic book name is "Carolyn Trainer"? Where's the alliteration???

    I think at this point we need someone who counters the counter sap meta! (IE someone who punishes the character who punishes you for your saps) Thanks to Polaris there is like 50 counters to it. I'm like 60% joking and still posting more frequently to get rid of this tile toppler tag.

    I do believe though that the strongest thing about this character is that "technologist" affiliation she is carrying.

    Is this for all new releases going forward. I use the pre-releases feeder chart to bonus hero the 4* that feeds the new 5* if it is close to the threshold of getting lts, shards or a cover.

    Please reconsider. One error should not derail something that is very useful information to have.

    This seems like a reasonable reaction, on their part, to all the complaints about the last feeder change. They got torn up for it, both on here and in other places.

    Unfortunately they get a lot more blowback from "incorrect" information than not giving out that information at all. It's understandable.

    Even if they put in "specifics may be subject to change" people can get upset. Heck, I definitely put a few levels into Spider-Man: India before Thursday, though I'm not particularly upset about it.

    Imo the reasonable reaction would be to to talk to all parties involved and finalize the feeder before posting the character thread or updated thread 1 day prior launch. Like mentioned above what is the point of posting on the launch day. They should just scrap it from their template if thats the case. I have never come to this forum to find out a character feeder after it has launched. Just another mind boggling move imo.

    I'm sure they would also prefer to have all of this finalized way in advance.

    Assuming they can't, for whatever reason, our choices are potentially wrong information or no information at all. They got a huge blowback for wrong information, so now they're trying the other option.
