    Kitty Pride?

    Dude, it's his 4th day on the job. He's not the one that would be responding to something of this magnitude anyways, it'd be one of the people who had a hand in this decision I would think. Besides it's been changed to a week now,so that's decent warning.

    Yes but Cthulhu was training with IceXI before he took the position. S/he was likely aware of this change. We're use to Ice coming to the forums to talk to us, I hope Cthulhu eventually does the same once s/he is settled in the role.

    Ah. So this is where we can find a red. Hey Cthulu, you're needed in the General Discussion forum.

    And this is Nightcrawler, almost certainly. Come out of nowhere to attack, ignore special tiles...yeah, this screams Nightcrawler.

    They took a page out of Scarlet Witches playbook and said "no more mutants" at least for a while...

    Let us keep this thread on the right rails please. icon_e_smile.gif

    I think this might, maybe be Richard Reed? But since it's a 4* and we already have a 4* Reed, I am thinking maybe not too.

    Spiderman might be a possibility, but does Black Suit actually cloak himself? I'm not terribly familiar. Though, it might be a node to his reflexes/agility.

    Those aside, I'd love to see Nightcrawler. Pleasssssssssssssssssseeeeeeeeeeeee.
  • Out of black into blue sounds like Nightcrawler too. Cant see them releasing another variant of a character they released last Month. My money is on Nightcrawler.

    Also, a 14 AP single character attack with no way to generate AP in that colour is not going to get used... As interesting as the other 2 colours look (and they really do look interesting! Love the different mechanic), I can see this being yet another mediocre 4* release.

  • I am trying to think of characters that sap Strength. The passive ability that weakens attack tiles, and makes them invisible. Could be Black Cat, or Morbius the Living Vampire?

    Interesting design, although his green sounds pricey unless it does a whole lot of damage.

    Plus he has the bad luck of sharing the colorset of two of the best 4* in the game, so he probably won't see much use.

    I apologise if my previous post wasn't seen to be adherent to the forum rules. Sorry to have spoiled anyone's guesses. I just thought it's a bit silly guessing wrongly, if there's an answer already. I've only found the website recently, my previous guesses were entirely my guess. I hope this shouldn't prevent me from making correct guesses in the future (I'm posting this here, instead of just to the mod in question, just in case the others have a similar issue with me in the future)

    I don't normally post in these. I think that it is probably nightcrawler too, but Morbius living vampire would fit much better. The sapping power as Mercurywolf pointed out would be much more fitting.

    It has to be Nightcrawler! Finally!!!
  • BoommikeBoommike Posts: 122 Tile Toppler
    All the Nightcrawler and Kitty guesses made me re-analyze the hint. I kept on thinking "out of the blue" in regards to the color of the suit (or character). Never thought of it as the colloquial saying for something coming up out of nowhere.

    Kitty's now dating Star Lord, in the recesses of space. That's dark. I think it's Kitty. I think it's not considered X-Men, and thus Joe Fletcher's hint stands.

    If it were Kitty, she had an early blue costume and a later black one. But the powers don't seem like her (enough like her, that is).

    Invisibility? THAT doesn't sound like Nightcrawler...

    And as much as they love to troll us, even they wouldn't release black suit Spidey right after Eddie Brock.

    I was just thinking that it could totally be the cloak. I always thought him and the hood would look awesome on a team together

    Pre-release ability precis:
      Damage/Stun - 6 AP - If invisible, deals bonus damage otherwise deals damage and stuns target for 1 turn.

      Damage/Stun - 14 AP - Deals damage to target enemy ignoring effects of any protect tiles, and stuns a random enemy for 2 turns.

      Guard/Invisible 0 AP - (PASSIVE) Enemy strike tiles add 45% less damage (to a minimum of 1). While enemy is stunned, character is invisible.

      This sounds like Nightcrawler to me with the green being his teleport sneaky attack.

      But 14AP for an attack on one enemy that better have some hefty damage behind it. Especially in the realm of 4* I can't think of many green batteries.

      Out of the blue.

      Into the black.

      Methinks it's Kitty.

      I originally thought this would be black suit Spider-Man, but none of the skill colors are black... so maybe that whole black/blue thing was more of a reference to out of nowhere. It could still be a Spider-Man character because of the recent trends in releases though. Who knows. If it weren't for them saying no more X-Men for a while, I would've agreed with Nightcrawler, although he is more of a red or black instead of green user.
