    I will try out OMD and 5Hawkeye with her. 
    Each cd gives you 3 blue and 2 red ap. Let OMD destroys 4 enemy special tiles and create 8 blue strike tiles. As long as you have at least 4  cds  on the board, and Polaris is multiplying tiles, you will be firing his red power every turn. This is just a fun team I thought of.

    Daken replaces enemy special tiles, not destroys. 
    I like this when facing enemy BRB for example.

    I wanted to like Adam Warlock, but he's just 5* Sentry to me - everything he does is a fast track to killing himself, so the juice isn't worth the squeeze.
    Adam Warlock really needs someone with a cheap Black to fire off the ap. I like his Yellow and Purple, but when I use AW I actively try to avoid black matches if I can possibly help it.

    Thanks for updating. OMD's red power was bugged previously, which caused it to destroy tiles instead. Now, it's working the way it should be.

    I think Rescue could substitute him. Use her blue to turn the board into a sea of red. I could try out this team in Shield Sim against BRB/Kitty/Polaris.

    I am not going to pretend I have him figured out either but I would like to add to my 5* champions so once I get the iso I am going to see what he does at 450.

    Since his strongest colour is yellow, you can pair him up with Valkyrie. That ensures that he's in tip top condition.

    Adam is really fun. I run him as a duo with Killmonger for even more match damage in the current enemies' strongest colour.  

    So he is pretty effective against okoye, kitty, apoc and some others. I always have him at 5 yellow and you can switch around having 5 black or 5 pink depending on your other members.

    Sad thing now is that Colossus probably outclasses his match damage. So he got powercrept within 12 months of release

    12 months? 12 weeks you mean. That’s the interval between Adam’s and Colossus’ releases.

    Anyway...Mantis eh? Absolutely stunning.

    It's only 13% difference and they have different abilities. Adam Warlock can true heal, trap tile damage and deal passive aoe, whereas Colossus reduces match damage, has one good active and one decent support ability.  

    I think they cater to different audience. Characters who can true heal typically have some inherent disadvantages. I think AW's abilities are more fun than Colossus. I'm biased towards trap tiles somewhat, so I might be blinded.

    Should have used this cover instead  





    Better than the edited Kang cover

    Oh lol. I didn't check the actual release dates. Time certainly flies when you are having fun  ^^. I just know I blew a big hoard for Adam and Magn5to and thought it took me a while to build it back up to get colossus and wanda covered.

    Mantis is indeed stunning

    The yellow power animation and sound effect...  :D

    It has been confirmed it's 1 purple cd tile per special tile matched or destroyed. The restriction is the number of purple tiles on the board. All in all, she works fine. If only the cd is not placed on a purple tile... On the flip side, it helps G4mora to activate her instant kill more easily. 

    I think Drax and Mantis is a good team for G4mora if you are going for instant kill

    And I’ve confirmed that she won’t automatically stun an enemy that isn’t stunned. I had 2 enemies stunned and 1 active, then another purple countdown went off and one of the stunned enemies took the damage instead of stunning the active enemy.

    She’s way more fun to use than I thought she would be.
    I love how her face pops up on the board.  Very cool character.

    Yellow animation is so funny.
    Her face poppin is a good way to identify her cds. New feature in the future? It would be great another feature wich could identify cds of any character, and more important even the traps.
    Her passive works on cds too as morbius. Great for pve too.

    Big thumbs up to the art team, the animations are great and so is the artwork.  Overall she seems like a fun character to play with.
    It's also refreshing to get more Guardians of the Galaxy added to the game!

    Pretty good. I had the entire team stunned after a couple turns.

    As a burgeoning 4* player I look forward to testing out who she pairs well with. I've read all of your comments and insights, so thank you for those. i do appreciate all of your thoughts on her.

    I do like how her face pops up on her cd tiles. When there are multiple cd tiles on the board, I often have to click on them to see whose it is and if I should attempt to match it or not (Medusa, 4*DP and 3*Falcon come to mind as being ones that I don't want to match,) I would like to see that effect happen for other characters as well, so put me down for a vote of wanting that to become a staple in the game in future updates. Her yellow animation is funny, so good choice for artwork on that one. 

    Overall I look forward to having some fun figuring out where she fits in the roster.

    Can't wait for her Simulator node with Carnage.

    Chatter from elsewhere says that she feeds Adam Warlock.
    Makes me even more excited for the character.
