    I…. Have no idea who this is but they are absurdly powerful… that black passive is so cool and so insanely scary if paired with Nico.

    Wait! They play with Nico. Calling it! This is Molly Hayes. They are designed to play with the Runaways and their synergy is Runaways. I am certain this is Molly with how hard she hits. She is the remaining colors needed for the Runaways too. Synergy is Mutant and Runaways or Inhuman and Runaways based on which Molly it is.

    Whelp... looks like another Polaris team is about to hit the scene. I, also, have no idea who this could be. I was hoping the powers would give me some ideas, but no.

    By elimination, those two affiliations are likely to be x-men/mutant or Avengers/Team Cap tag because the hero tag is revealed. 

    First power is likely to be capped at a max of 60% or 20% each.

    Second power is Elektra's red + Antman's weaker blue.

    Third power is likely 30-40% of the collected strength.

    5/3/5 for me. First fit is Polaris/R4G. Nico or Hellcat can replace R4G. At higher level, Hela/Kitty/Mehneto/OMD could be good.

    With the clue and skillset  ,I am thinking likely to be pirate kitty pyrde

    I don't think it is Molly Hayes because this character has more team affiliations than Nico and Karolina.
    Also where would the I'm a Pirate clue come in on that one.
    I'm going with Kitty Pryde.

    Molly Hayes is a Mutant and Molly Hernandez is an Inhuman. Nico and Karolina aren’t any of those

    I'm still fighting for Corsair.  Affiliation could be Hero (to match with Electro's wording), X-Men, Guardians of the Galaxy, or an unreleased affiliation (perhaps Infinity Watch?);  first power could be his leadership abilities protecting and boosting his allies, second could be a reference to him being a space pirate (like Star-Lord...and it is similar to Quill's Purple), and third could reference his twin energy blasters drawing power for an attack.

    Come to think of it, ?? Shield training might not be easy. Apart from the red power, the rest of the power is pretty much low to zero damage.

    Assuming the total strength of special tiles matched or destroyed is 15000 when the repeater hits 1, and the % is 40%, it's only 6000 damage.

    Brace yourself for a difficult shield training.

    He seems to pair good with polaris, as his passive works for own player tiles. Also BRB too, but possibly his affiliation wont be one of them. 
    Perhaps with kitty and karoline if converting protects to strike still remains the possible % affiliation. 
    Apart from that, not much. He relies heavily on partners or on special tiles enemy.

    Marauder Kate Pryde! She's a pirate and a marauder, x-men, krakoan. So, maybe? The black passive looks like a counter to Polaris.

    Boy, I am amazed at the number of people guessing it’s Marauder Kitty Pryde based on *checks notes* no evidence whatsoever. I wonder what led them to this conclusion?
    If I had to take a wild stab in the dark as to why, it would probably be the pirate clue that makes them think that

    in all seriousness though, this character does play with special tiles, and has qualities that function similar (not the same, just similar) to 5* Kitty, so she isn’t completely out of field as a guess

    Sounds like a weaker 4-star clone of Kitty to me. 
    Yellow creates three protect tiles and fortifies other specials. Come on. 
    Circuit breaker is like a mixture and variation  of the other two powers where you destroy (instead of steal) enemy's special tiles and punish the enemy for having them - like when circuit breaker expires. 
    I don't know who Marauder Kitty is that was mentioned before but I'm hoping for a Pirate Kitty from Uncanny X-Men 153. That was a funny story I know since my childhood and reread last year during the stay-at-home months.

    Given that there are 277 Marvel Pirate characters according to at least one website, I don't think the pirate clue quite explains it. However, the pirate clue in conjunction with the power set that does seem similar in a lot of ways to 5* Kitty does provide some evidence.

    She looks like she will pair well with Beta Ray Bill, but as a 5* player I don't see her being the rare 4* who has relevance in 5* land (e.g. Polaris, America, Rocket), so really a transition character. I don't see her being anything other than a necessary essential. But 4* players, please do enjoy!

    Now the big question--could she be a feeder, and if so for who?

    Will Lockheed support have synergy with her?

    I am a bit confused how they would be good with Polaris though. Polaris does make a whole ton of special tiles yes, but aren’t they all absurdly weak? Like, aren’t they supposed to be strength 50 for each she makes or something? That black passive won’t be very effective if the strength of the special tiles is so low.

    *New Character*’s yellow power boosts the strength of 4 special tiles for only 6 AP.

    Oh. Missed that. Yeah. That will work. Didn’t realize how many they could buff at a time.

    Seems we have a number of psychics in our midst, right. Just like when 5* Colossus was “guessed” in the monthly notes.
