@time: idk about storm or jean, i know they just gave her a bonus power recently and i had plan to get jean when they had the avengers vs xmen event, but it timed out. i think storm is okay when they let us have turn with during some of the spec ops missions but i can't say for sure

@time: i use invisable woman( i don't have ff costume but fought it enough in pvp to know it is worth the credits), doctar strange with modern costume is good( his attacks add bane which increases magic damage),ms.marvel can absorb engery attacks and covert it hp and can attack twice in one turn with one of her moves ,the rest i have are she-hulk, black cat, iron man, luke cage, black widow which are okay but don't match up well

i wonder if anyone has cable or deadpool? cause i want them but cables locked and deadpool is 135

Are we talking for PvP purposes? I tend to run with a Colossus/Scarlet Witch team. Colossus is pretty much the best tank in the game if you get his scrapper upgrade. He'll protect the group automatically for two turns and is immune to virtually all status effects. Wanda blasts from behind his shield and wears them down.

I hear good things about Quicksilver as well.

@Rickbarry: quicksilver is gets alot free attacks which can be crazy, i don't have him but fought him so much that learned that you have to take himout first or he while just whale on you constantly

I've played against Deadpool. He's incredibly annoying...just like his comic version.

lol, is he powerful or does alot of attcks? i was thiking about getting Scarlet Witch but i went with rogue instead, i wish they would lower the price on some of the newer characters though

I heard that deadpool wasn't very good in the game.  what is PvP, I've just started to play the game, so not sure what it is.

Well he has a lot of moves that kind of break the game for your characters. He'll put a 'buggy' status on them which means they won't be able to attack for a random amount of time. If you damage him he'll use a move called "Whine on the forums" that damages and weakens the character that attacked. Plus every attack he does successfully perform gives him a buff. Basically...kill him quick or he'll drive you insane.

@time: pvp is player vs player matches, at first it was cool but got boring fast but later they competion where you can win prizes like 100,000 coins, 10 gold, a new weapon , exclusive class outfit or exclusive character

@Rickbarry: okay,now i want him more, does anyone think pyshlocke will be any good?

Xmen wise I have cyke, Phoenix, colossus, storm, shadowcat, gambit, deadpool. Then some avengers characters. Deadpool is fun but not that powerful or reliable in PVP. Colossus is the best value for money, socket him with evasion ISO and modern outfit, then he will protect your team for the first couple of turns but dodge most of them. Gambit is a great character, steep price and low health but can do some serious damage with 4x kinetic charge and ragin cajun. Plus his royal flush removes all beneficial status effects from the enemy team, so good in PVP against people like tact dr strange (becoming widely used) who pile on buffs. Haven't used beast/rogue but one of them will be my next buy. Think beast is slightly better than rogue as he has a chance to counter when allies are attacked.

Storm and Scarlet Witch imo.

Storm's shroud is one of the best moves in the game.

Scarlet Witch may just be the best character. hands down.

@Vincent92 she's my premiere blaster and I use her a whole lot. Her first attack is great, but it won't work on sentinels because its a telepathic attack. Second is telekinetic and has a pretty high chance to stun. She has good stats as well.

Phoenix got a buff today. She now resuscitates the first ally to get KO'd back to 25% health but can't use phoenix fire while this passive is active. They also buffed all bruisers so now instead of enraged only increasing attack, it increases all stats. My colossus had now got me to top 6% in PvP :D

Sacarlet Witch = Just too much

Emma Frost = Mental Trauma FTW

Storm = Allows you to fight magneto as epic boss in a chapter and has great skills

Collossus = Great Bruiser

NEVER GET NIGHTCRAWLER = Sooo week, and kind of useless.

PVP is a way to get more experience as well as unlock additional items/silver/characters if you're good enough. I'd dip your toe in the water as the 100k silver it rewards you after it's conclusion is great for new players.

@Mercy_: she doesnt cause that much pure damage, but her random buffs/debuffs are ridiculous. Twice now my agents had instant death cast on him.

@jhole: iknow what you mean, it drives me crazy when they have her and human torch togther on a team cause they are so overpowerd

I have question, I intend to buy Colossus next and I  have a few shields points. Not sure to level up susan storm, iron man or wait till Colossus gets to level 2. what do you think? Iron Man has 2 powers so far and susan has one.

#38 Posted by Vincent92 (261 posts) - - Show Bio

@time: defintly level up susan, her sheilds will save your live on many occasions

@jhazzroucher: how strong are storm defence cause i know she has good offensive abilities but i notice that many blaster characters(doctar strange) get taken out very quickly in pvp

@Mercy_ said:

Yup. I'll boil down her abilities for ya.

Hex Spheres: Attacks all enemies and puts a 'Hex' status on them. It will sometimes cause an enemies attack to backfire and damage the attacker.

Arcane Blast: Does increased damaged to 'Hexed' targets and applies random status affects on the character. (This usually does great damage and any status debuff adds salt to the wound.)

Chaos Shield: 70% chance to succeed. Causes the next attack to restore health instead of taking it away. It also erases any existing status effects with their direct opposite. Example: Exposed (reduced defense) becomes Fortified (Increased defense). Status effects like Burn/poison/chill will be removed and will be replaced by regeneration/resistance.

Probability Field: Buffs your entire team with random buffs and puts various negative status effects on their entire team.

Stick her with a character that blocks and has high damage resistance like Cap or Scrapper Colossus and she can dominate an entire team. I love her.

Thanks! I've been on the fence about recruiting her. I have enough points, but I wasn't sure she was gonna be worth my while. Looks like she most certainly will.

Is she a blaster?

You're welcome and yup she's a blaster. Her natural enemy is Cap, but as long as you wait for his shield guard to go down he falls easy enough. Stick her with either Cap or Scrapper Colossus and you'll get to the ten gold league easily.

I'm investing in Quicksilver since he seems to instantly give you a massive advantage against spiderman/invisible woman combo's.

@time: i don't remeber exactly how to be beat it, but you most often have to obtain certain items in battle from the prevous chapter or unlock a certain # of characters
