    Sjnister Six rerun confirmed. Guess Okoye will be essential next week after all.

    Also, I realized that rerunning Peggy Carter as the fourstar reward means Professor X is delayed until next week... right around the time when the next fivestar feeder should be announced. That makes him a very strong candidate, guess we will see if he is the reward for Deadpool vs MPQ or not.

    Professor X seems most likely to give out Phoenix, though I think having him double-feed Old Man Logan with XFW would be pretty appropriate as well. I have a feeling when we finally get that Gambit feeder, it'll be from Jubilee or some other bottom-tier 4* x-man rather than the Rogue everybody wants it to be.

    Surprisingly peaceful today for an announcement. There's not much or no outcry today.   :D

    I'm looking forward to the boss event. 6 June is the schedule for 4* to be served to the next 5*. Deadpool vs MPQ starts on the 3rd and ends on 7th for first slice, which fits in perfectly for the 4* essential who's going to be the feeder. If it's really Prof X, then it could be Jean Grey and I think someone mentioned ArchAngel as well?

    I don't think so.  I think Phoenix is more likely to be fed by Teen Jean or Cyclops.  I suspect Prof X will feed AA or Gambit, probably AA.

    Drax would like to Point out that the feeder assignments don't Always make much sense. We will see in due time.

    Drax feeding Star-Lord makes sense.  Now it doesn't make the most sense, but it certainly fits.

    It's been more or less proven that the feeder is chosen by the 4* who comes up for feeder turn, rather than vice versa.  The only other even remotely sane 5* to come out of Drax would be Thanos and he already had a feeder.

    Based on that logic who fits at all with Prof X?  Any of the X-Men, so:
    - Archangel (former X-Men/original member)
    - Gambit
    - Phoenix
    - OML

    Next elimate those that already have a feeder (OML), so down to:
    - Archangel (former X-Men/original member)
    - Gambit
    - Pheonix

    Now who has better feeders out of those 3?
    - Archangel = None that I can think of.
    - Gambit = Rogue, duh
    - Phoenix = Teen Jean & Cyclops

    Therefore if I were them using the rules they seem to be using I'd pick AA.  I'm not saying any players want that (I certainly don't), but it seems most likely to me.

    Now Prof X and Jean certainly have a strong link in the comics so it's not impossible for it to be Phoenix, but with so many characters to link up I would think they would save her since she's got several other and better options where AA really doesn't.

    Jean & Cyclops would both make logical feeders for Phoenix but in the hope that a 5* Cable is a realistic thing at some point (and I believe Josh Austin expressed his desire to bring the character to MPQ in an interview at some point), I would hope they saved one of them for him.

    I would think that would be ideal for Cyclops.  My understanding (and this could be totally wrong I haven't read a lot of comics but have some general knowledge about them from others and wikis) is he's the son of Cyclops and Madelyne Pryor who's a Jean Grey clone, but not truly Jean.

    That is correct, so yeah, Cyclops would be best choice out of the 2.

    Mind you - technically Phoenix ended up not really being Jean either! Poor Chris Claremont...

    I have a feeling Nightcrawler is going to feed Archangel eventually, but I could see Professor X-> Archangel as well. 
  • QuebbsterQuebbster Posts: 8,070 Chairperson of the Boards

    Main reason I don't Think it's Archangel is that they seem to have abandoned giving recent fivestars feeders - coincidentally that happened when it was Gambit's turn to get one.

    Heck, Cyclops could just as easily be Archangel's feeder as they are both original X-men. I will agree that Jean is not likely though.

    I think it wouldnt be very hard to argue for Prof X feeding Phoenix as he actually has close link to Jean and the Phoenix part of her... the others mainly just with Jean...

    I do get the “nobody fits angel” argument, but that would suggest d3 looking ahead quite a bit.... so...
