Team Spirit - 6 AP / PASSIVE
As long as they stick together, nothing can keep the Runaways down. Karolina Dean builds a barrier of light to protect her team. Creates 2 strength 10 Protect tiles. For every Runaway on the team, Karolina creates 1 additional Protect tile.
PASSIVE: Whenever an ally is healed, Karolina improves the healing by 8%.
  • Level 2: Create 2 strength 15 Protect tiles. Increase healing by 12%. (Strength 29 Protect tiles, 12% healing)
  • Level 3: Create 2 strength 18 Protect tiles. Increase healing by 15%. (Strength 36 Protect tiles, 15% healing)
  • Level 4: Create 3 strength 20 Protect tiles. Increase healing by 22%. (Strength 40 Protect tiles, 22% healing)
  • Level 5: Create 3 strength 25 Protect tiles and 2 additional tiles for each Runaway. Increase healing by 35%. (Strength 51 Protect tiles, 35% healing)
Rising Sun / Sunset Strip - 6 AP
Rising Sun - Karolina soars upwards, disengaging from the fight until the time is right. Karolina places a 3 turn Fortified Countdown tile on the board that creates 1 strength 5 Protect tile each turn and generates 1 Blue AP when it goes off. While this tile is on the board, Karolina is Airborne and the ability becomes Sunset Strip.

Sunset Strip - (PASSIVE) as the sun falls, Karolina descends and harnesses her energy for a tactical blow. If there are 5 or more friendly Protect tiles on the board at the start of her turn, Karolina removes her Rising Sun Countdown tile and converts 3 Protect tiles to Strike tiles. When this Countdown tile is no longer on the board, this ability becomes Rising Sun.
  • Level 2: Creates strength 10 Protect tiles and generates 2 Blue AP. (Strength 18 Protect tiles)
  • Level 3: Creates strength 23 Protect tiles. (Strength 41 Protect tiles)
  • Level 4: Creates strength 41 Protect tiles and generates 4 Blue AP. (Strength 74 Protect tiles)

  • Level 2: Deal 454 damage and heal allies for 64 damage. (883 damage, 126 health per tile)

    Posting a link to Cheese and Onions here, just because it's an awesome song. Is this character somehow Rutles related? ;)

    My first thought was a packet of crisps... :smiley:

    Cheesey jokes make you laugh and onions make you cry. I'm assuming this character will have emotional issues or a mental illness?

    Powers don't sound like him but I'm going to guess Legion.

    Edit: This guy with Bl4ck Panther is going to be fun. Shame about the overlap though.

    Rachel Summers "Prestige"  - Xmen is my call.

    I don't know why but Polaris keeps getting stuck in my brain....
    But maybe Adam Warlock? Could he have the GotG tag? the mirror/mirror Grocket?
    If it's a villain could it be The Beetle?

    Def works with Rescue, Doom seems like he would just last forever!, great for transistioners who still rely on strange for clears

    I very much like the idea of having all of your team airborne at once: 5Marv/Vulture/???? all sorts of green AP ramp.

    maybe because I came up with 2* Bullseye as my first playable char that I have a spot in my heart for making Protects "work". yay new options!

    Looked up the lyrics to the "Cheese & Onions" song.

    "Man and machine
    Keep yourself clean
    Or be a has-been
    Like a dinosaur..."

    Last 3 lines don't matter. It's the first "Man and Machine" that got me thinking. Could this character be a cyborg? Protect and strike tiles and also has team affiliation factoring into his powers.

    Cyborg
    Special tiles
    Team affiliation (X-Men perhaps?)
    Y/B/G

    4* Cable perhaps?

    We’re all in on protects now y’all. This feels like a second Flaptain, but surely it’s not that?

    I tried googling to see about any healers that can fly and protect people, and the three names that kept popping up were either Archangel, of which we have 2, doctor strange, of which we have 2, and Wiccan, who already has a 4* (in the same colours too). I think all of those are unlikely

    Another name that did come up however, is Mr Negative, who can heal, and his powers can be used for healing and good, but then instantly flip and be used destructively (protects into strikes). He is a villain though, and I’m pretty sure he can’t fly anyway, but I would love it if he made it into the game at some point.

    EDIT: it could be someone like Beast? The powers seem like improved versions of the 3* version, and in the same colours too. He’s acrobatic, which is as airborne as black cat is, is the team doctor, and has a violent side too. That’s my guess

    EDIT 2: (Hank) McCoys is also a brand of crisp/chips too (and definitely has a cheese and onion flavour).
    The way the power sets seems to focus on interacting with special tiles and healing reminds of Nico, and with the first power mentioning something about a "Team Type", I couldn't help but think of the Runaways. Runaways Final season starts today, and we've gotten more than enough X-Men recently to keep us occupied for a while. Can't think of any other Team Types that would be relevant at the moment.

    That brings me to your comment on flying and protecting people, which from the Runaways lineup would lead me to guess Karolina Dean. This power sets seems like it would work in an interesting way with Nico's, and Karolina's feelings for Nico are anything but a secret. 

    That said though, I can't make it align with the "Cheese & Onions" clue for the life of me. 
    Ooh! I like that idea! I have been saying we need more than one runaway in the game for ages! 

    Although I can’t really think of what karolinas powers did other than let her fly and turn into rainbows. Also, I would be extremely disappointed if any clue for her didn’t reference Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds/the Beatles. It would be too much of a missed opportunity.

    If this is an effort to get Machine Man into the game, I'm all for it... Zombies (shard announcement) to Fleshies ;)

    Cheese and Onions is a pastiche of Beatles’ psychadelia, so....
