    Blue holds this character back. Might've been fun otherwise.
    Interesting you say that..

    I think blue sounds like the most interesting power, only down side is he'll need to tank the powers and all my other 4stars are already much higher level

    I was thinking this also if it is a specific team-up with Peggy needed for the stun immunity. He won't tank red and he will need quite a few levels to tank blue so she isn't going to get much benefit by the sounds of it.
    My reading of that power is that this character is always stun immune (if he has a yellow cover), and grants stun immunity to Character[A].

    Yeah, sorry I guess I wasn't clear (that first sentence is horribly worded on a read back!) in that I was talking about the new characters blue power rather than his yellow but I can see how you might think otherwise! If he tanked blue he can make blue AP for Peggy which helps her stun the enemy - his blue is passive so that AP is no good to him. However it is going to be quite hard to tank blue over Peggy (if that even is who this is) considering how old a character she is as people will have her at high levels. So the synergy is not as good as it could be.

    If this IS hydra smasher, would he be team iron man, or team cap you think?

    Based upon the episode he can only be Team Cap in my opinion.

    I guess I mean maybe? The most likely two desriptions are going to be Hydra Stomper (Steve Rogers) or Hydra Stomper (What if...?) - It would be technically "wrong" for him to be "Captain America" but the story bent puts him on that team more than Stark's. All that said, I never understand how any of these character lock outs work!

    So far as I know outside of a few special cases, the lockouts are specifically due to a shared primary name regardless of what's in the (...). This is why Archangel and Angel can be played together, and why all the hulks and ghost riders and thors cannot.

    I guess Steve Rogers (Hydra Stomper) could also be possible (and is probably more applicable than the other way around) but I cannot see any way he can be Captain America.

    Wolverine (Samurai Daken) being playable with Logan based wolvies and not Daken and Loki (alligator of mischief) being playable with other Loki’s are the two big specific exemptions I’m aware of. Oh, and scorpion being excluded from 1* venom as well.

    It's pretty interesting that this guy just can't be stunned...*ever*.  They haven't given that passive to a 4* yet.  I think it's yet another shot at Polaris, but I don't think it's going to bother her very much.

    His only tag is Heroes. Usually they have ???? if there are more.
    If speaking hypothetically then yeah he would be Team Cap.

    Which is why it holds him back.

    Immune to stun is amazing.  

    Can convert enemy weak colour tiles to friendly protects, good for things like polaris or kitty  

    Blue passive. Sounds Very good with C4rol (5 in yellow).  

    Green is very interesting. I wonder if it will work correctly with things like Domino's black falling tile passive power and how it would interact with things like Gh5strider or War machine when they destroy tiles with their powers.  

    Might not be meta, might be slow or board dependant, but being immune to stun is a huge boon,
    Also, not to be missed, is that "If Character(A) is an ally, they cannot be stunned either." Which to me makes this ability even more potent, and as you say, amazing. Now you've got at least 2 (possibly 3?) characters on your team that cannot be stunned as long as this character is on the board. That's big. This character becomes target #1, so pair with Deadpool/The Thing/Lockjaw, etc to keep this character alive, and that could be a team that others may not want to play against. All speculation at this point, though.

    I'm not confident on this character's identity. Could it be Hydra Stomper? Sure, I can see that. However, this is also the closest thing I can see to a 4* Vision-slash-White Vision.

    I seem to remember that both beasts can be used together as well, as they are acknowledged to be from different universes and have been seen together on the same comic pages before

    If so that is a huge disappointment. If you have a champed Wanda you won't be using this 4* character with them in PVP. If they are gonna make that version of Vision and purposely make the powers sync with Wanda then he also needs to be a 5*.
    I'm guessing the <team affiliation> enemy almost has to be Villain regardless of the character. I'm not seeing much else that would make sense there. If it were say Team Cap or Team Iron Man then they seemingly would have the opposite tag themself.

    Not another Cap.   Although if it's Zombie What If Cap, I'm all for that

    If it was White Vision , he’d definitely need to be a 4*. Otherwise the Character A would be Wanda and you’d have an unstunable Apoc/ Witch/ Vision 5* team and the forum would go ballistic

    That would only happen if there were a Mutant in the mix I think.
