    Easy 5/3/5 for me. Oh man that Purple...
  • JHawkIncJHawkInc Posts: 1,947 Chairperson of the Boards
    I like this kit. Purple stun, cheap Green that benefits from a stun, fun Black (even if it relies on an opponent matching black to kick off).

    Nice to see 4*s getting much lower-cost and still strong abilities.

    Kudos to the people who pull out Archangel for her PvP.

    All the fun stuff keeps dropping in the 4* tier. I can’t decide if that’s good or bad. 

    Another must have.

    5/5/3 for me. That's a great purple. Black over green because her green isn't AoE. As a 5-star player, I have other greens I can use. 

    She'll be buried under dilution, but a max-champ Felicia+JJ would be annoying with those trap tiles. You KNOW the AI would make you cry.

    BlackCat + Iceman + Vulture would be a sweet stun-lock team in 4* Land
    Vulture's black feeding both her green and Bobby's blue to keep the stuns coming often and hitting hard.
    Pick up some of her purple along the way and you're really set.

    That or replace Iceman with Peggy (and her blue) if you want a red user, too.

    Looks pretty good, too bad she won't be viable for me for at least 6-12 months until i fully cover her.

    May RNG be on my side

    Purple at 5 is a given.
    The increase in damage for black going from 4 to 5 covers is negligible, but raising the threshold for the number of trap tiles is huge, so 5-4-4 feels like the way to go.
    I'm assuming that purple will be the color they only put in the highest of rewards, pretty unfortunate for the bulk of the playerbase

    It looks to me like those trap tiles are friendly ones, and only activate on your own matches. It shouldn't require any triggering from the opponent.

    Seems you are correct.

    Correct. In addition, Black Cat will create a Trap tile immediately on the first turn of the battle.

    People are loving that purple, and it looks good.  But if I really want a good cheap sun, then I have gamora and ice already.  6ap v. 7ap is big difference. And black cat's stun can't be multi-cast.

    Green is where it's at.  6ap for 4-6k damage in the 4* t tier is great.

    Black seems nice, but likely to be there dump skill.

    She is squishy too. 

    Overall seems like a worthy addition to the tier that is potentially rendered superflous by bring ~ 90th in release order.

    Edited for spelling.

    Yeah it's a 7ap stun, but it's a 7ap 4 turn stun that also does 3k damage and launches her airborne for a turn. And that's on Purple which doesn't have many stun powers (Mystique and 5* Daredevil are the only ones I can think of off the top of my head. Scarlet Witch too, but who cares).

    Sure Iceman and Gamora have her beat, but it's still a fantastic power.

    Ooo, passive AP steal. That's always appealing to me, though it doesn't look too great.


  • ThaRoadWarriorThaRoadWarrior Posts: 3,087 Chairperson of the Boards
    Seems good, wish I had a better Ronin to get in early, but oh well. Maybe I'll get lucky with a token.
  • jameshjamesh Posts: 1,398 Chairperson of the Boards
    I wonder how her purple interacts with Archangel's blue passive?  Whose stun gets applied first?
  • jameshjamesh Posts: 1,398 Chairperson of the Boards
    It'd also be interesting to see how her black passive interacts with powers that change tile colours (e.g. Jubilee's Light Show).  If you have the maximum number of black trap tiles, and one of those tiles is  turned red, will Black Cat create another trap tile?

    Almost certainly Archangel wins, since her stun resolves on landing and his resolves on aitborne

    Awesome! And the airborne bit looks vaguely familiar.  Looks like I’ll have to start on my Legion concept and try and get that to be a reality now.   :D

    Edit: Legion concept up. Shadow King too.  Fingers crossed.
  • Gold_DragonGold_Dragon Posts: 101 Tile Toppler
    Her stun looks better than iceman’s and gamora’s. The stun is longer, deals damage, and you still get the stun if she’s thrown airborne by someone else. Put her with 5* Carol or gwenpool for lols
