    More AP denial.
    Looks like they're trying to slow down the game a bit.

    That Blue power is a unique one.

    Depending on it's mechanics (is this threshold for every color type or only some color types, Can you get more than 1 drain per color) it would be devastating against Goons who can't ever match away the tile and would be perpetually drained of AP.

    Ie: Is it 'If team has more than X AP in any color create this special tile in that color'. So if threshold is 12, does that mean if you have more than 12 Red you'd create a Red special tile. Then if you had more than 12 Black you'd create a 2nd tile in Black and so on. Presumably it would be like the Hood where 1 cover works on 1 color and each successive cover adds another color type you could steal.

    It's the same as Loki's Trickery, but converts friendly instead of enemy tiles.

    This character is definitely going to be some kind of pest to deal with.

    I'm not sure I see the benefit of flipping my own tiles tiles unless i can maybe get thing's passive out and then flip them. i don't want to flip most tiles i put out there like hb strikes or nova or GR or antman. maybe it'd be nice to flip falcap protects. guess I'm not seeing a large benefit of the function or a strategy in which it becomes valuable.

    edit: maybe the value is in the strengthening once we see the numbers.

    This may just be the text being used to disguise powers for the precis, but "it's" should be "its" with no apostrophe.

    I have no idea. maybe it's Nightcrawler? probably not since he's an X-man

    For starters, you can pair this character with capfalcon.

    That passive looks very interesting on first read. And two other relatively fast powers. A potentially interesting character.

    Except the yellow overlap negates its usefulness a bit.

    I could definitely see the advantage of using it with OML. Using his strikes to give protection long enough for him to heal up sounds very useful to me.

    I want to say the same for Patch, but probably not, unless you've got the AP to switch back quickly.

    If we actually saw the true form of Cthulhu's punctuation, we would all go mad anyway. So it's just as well. . .

    Sounds slow to me. Why not just kill the other team with those strikes and heal up after the match (or during the beginning of the next match)?

    This is not a game that rewards turning offense into defense or extending matches.
