Earlier today, there was an issue where Summoners that logged on shortly after the Login Calendar switched over for the day didn't receive the Cosmic Ghost Rider login crystal. We've fixed the issue for players receiving the crystal now but will have to collect data and send out the crystal to all players that didn't receive it next week. We apologize for this inconvenience and look forward to making it right for you all.

Stealth suit spidey

So I was fighting stealth suit Spidey with my Nick fury and I thought, hey why isn't he tagged as avenger? As far as I remember in infinity war iron Man made Spidey an avenger,so logically the next mcu version of Spidey to come into the game should be tagged as avenger,and the next one that did come in was stealth suit Spidey so I kindly ask why isn't he?
Note: I am sorry if this topic has been asked before and answered.

    Marvel decided so i guess
  • He is not an avenger in the game, and these type of tags are usually checked/decided by marvel itself as well.

    Stealth Suit Spidey is specifically the character from Far From Home - which is not an Avengers movie

    First of all, I'm not sure why people point to that scene where Iron Man "made" Peter an Avenger. In the movie that's just something that Tony Stark says to Peter Parker. Does that have the force of law? Is it an official decree? In the fictional world of the MCU there's an actual official quasi-government organization called the Avengers. Do you believe that anyone Tony calls an Avenger becomes a government employee at that moment?

    Conversely, if you believe that when Tony tells Peter he's an Avenger that he's now an Avenger, then how do you interpret the scene where Tony tells Banner that the Avengers "broke up." Like the Beatles. Does that mean there are no more Avengers any more? Or does that mean that everyone who decided not to follow the Accords or is on the run is no longer an Avenger. Is that how you see it? At that moment, is Cap an Avenger? I mean, Tony never made him an Avenger after Civil War. So if Tony telling Peter he's an Avenger in Infinity War means he is an Avenger, then telling Banner that the Avengers broke up should mean Rogers isn't an Avenger, and Captain America Infinity War should not have the #Avengers tag.

    Instead, these things aren't official decrees. They are character utterances in conversation. Whether a character is or is not an Avenger is more a question of how the story and the other characters in the story treat that character at the time: it is a subjective, relative thing.

    Stealth Suit Spiderman isn't an Avenger because that's supposed to be a secret identity that Nick Fury gives to Peter so no one knows it is him. It is that bit of narrativium that is being reflected in the champion design in MCOC.

    When Mysterio first entered the contest, he did not have the #villain tag. That was a bit of cross-marketing gamesmanship with the Spiderman Homecoming movie. The tag didn't reflect who he was, it reflected how the game wanted players to treat him (who were not aware of his comic history, anyway). So tags aren't just a question of character definition, they also reflect story as well as substance.
