Stop Adding "New Skins"

With the introduction of Venom the Duck and Symbiote Supreme, it really got me thinking of how many better characters there are that could be added instead. Don't get me wrong Symbiote Supreme is pretty cool, it's more Venom the Ducks that's just plain dumb. Instead of adding what are essentially the same champions with a new appearance or skin, i.e: reskins, why can't new, unique champions get added? I'm not saying Venom the Duck and Symbiote Supreme suck or do not have any new abilities, I'm just saying I think everyone would rather see Sandman, Apocalypse, Anti-Venom, Professor X, Pyro, Quicksilver, etc. Amiright?

    Venom the duck and Howard the duck have different abilities, as well as being a different class. The only reskins in this game that i hate are the original iron man with superior iron man. Then there is the ms, marvel and captain marvel which are basically the same. They added these two symbiote characters to fit the Venom theme since the move came out. Which i personally dont mind since i know eventually most of the characters i want in the game will probably come eventually. Plus i like these new champs they make, but some dont.

    I understand what you mean, but this isn't true. Venom the Duck is a completely different character in terms of abilities, he is nothing like Howard the Duck. You have to admit that VTD is unique; maybe it isn't the symbiote people wanted, but he isn't a reskin. Ms. Marvel and Captain Marvel would be an example of two differently "skinned" characters with the exact same abilities.

    But essentially it’s a reskin. However VTD and HTD are completely different with different animations, and I feel the animations of VTD are sick

    Literally the only thing og and sym spidey have in common of note is they're both trash defenders unduped. There's definitely one you'd rather face duped without a true strike attacker...

    Cap WWII would fight OG CAP and say...

    "Tell me. Do you bleed?"

    Because...you know...Cap WWII inflicts bleed on his Sp2...and OG Cap doesn't....

    I'll show myself out.

    Disagreed there are a lot of variants that could be game changer.

    Iron Fist and Iron Fist in white leotards.

    This pretty much is a reskin, but immortal iron fist is a little better. I think his armor breaks are permanent until he is struck? Maybe I'm mistaken, but they function a bit differently.
    Or Cyclops (Blue Team) and Cyclops (New Xavier School)

    Once again, also very slightly different. Blue cyclops gains power faster at lower power levels, has unblockable specials, and longer armor break. Red cyclops is worse, he has short armor breaks and once above 15 hits his beams cannot be reduced by blocks. He can crit through blocks tho

    Og cap has higher block prof, does fatigue on perfect blocks, and has high stun chance on both specials if opponent is fatigued. At lower health levels his pb chance increases. Cap wwii is better imo, pb chance increases based on how many buffs the opponent has, sp1 has 30% stun chance, sp2 has 100% bleed.

    Yeah, but same move set for the most part. Give them original moves or specials and people would be happier.

    FOUL!

    The specials aren’t a unique thing really. For the most part there’s only about a handful of different attack animations and specials usually are reskinned for different champs

    Bishop and Kingpin

    Spider classic/Sym and Ultron

    Ultron, Kang, IM, SIM,

    SIM, IM, Ms/Cpt Marvel

    Even less obvious ones like War Machine, Domino, Emma Frost, KANG, Rocket Raccoon

    Or the blatant rips like CB/Punisher and then you got Blade and Elektra with possibly MODOK

    Or even Hela and Archangel

    And even Omega Red borrows most of his Sp2 from Carnage Sp1

    Oh and Stark Spider tips his Sp1 straight from Spider GWEN’S Sp2

    Then you have BB sharing specials with Vision and Iron Patriot

    We need Immortal iron fist to be reworked and called "Iron Fist (Netflix)" similar to what happened with daredevil

    I'm pretty sure NetMarble bought Kabam, and unfortunately that's how they roll. Instead of buffing old champs, they release new skins.
