Greater Realism in Abilities

Having chosen Hood to play against War Machine as most projectiles should miss, my character is still mown down when only 10% of projectiles should hit. While part of the point of S3 is that it is unblockable, this kind of behaviour breaks character continuity, as (in this case) invisibility now seems to have been interrupted. Invisibility becomes a gimmick, and it is hard to suspend disbelief.

Similarly, recently I was reading of a suggestion that Ice Man should be cold resistant (and perhaps more susceptible to heat).

So I would suggest that for powers, an internal look-up table is kept for specific character modifiers. While of course all of these powers are non-physical, in that they cannot exist, narrative non-physicality breaks continuity in the game, and is worth the effort of fixing so as to enhance game immersion.

    While yes, I agree that Iceman should be cold resistant, I don't believe that sp3 should not stop invisibility. The point of the special is for it to be a cinematic fight scene, in which the user mows down the opponent with a series of cool attacks (or, in colossus's case, a simple tap on the head). It bypasses any active buffs and debuffs to your opponent or yourself, respectively. It ruins the whole coolness of the attack if you dodge all the attacks.

    I agree, something can't be done for balancing purposes (like Hulk having Regen) but some do. It is not Kabam isn't trying, but something as obvious as giving cold immunity to Iceman is not too much to ask.

    It would also be cool to have daredevil be immune to invisibility.

    I agree that it's hard to catch every case, but it's a worthy target, and an internal look-up table cross-referencing immunities could be easily updated to include new ones.

    Love the idea!

    Daredevil actually IS immune to invisibility.

    In a realistic world, you wouldn't have any invisible characters.

    I agree, @Haji_Saab which is why my point concerns narrative. Authors are highly aware of this strange paradox of combining the fantastical and the real.

    I'm glad that DD is immune, BTW! That is as it should be :)
