In conclusion, valkyrie is a better champ to awaken over black cat. But neither of them really need it to access the damage they have.
That being said, Black Cat has impressed the heck out of me. She's probably my favorite champ released this year, which is saying something since I think this year's champs have been great overall. I just constantly find so much use for her. Whether it's shutting down damaging effects like Electro's damage-on-hit or iBom's poisons, to shutting down Thing's rock stacks or Hulkling's regen/indestructible buffs, to denying Nick Fury his charges whenever you strike him.
Similarly to how Valkyrie reminds me of Masacre, Black Cat reminds me a lot of OG Falcon; and OG Falcon was my MVP for most of the game after his buff. It didn't really matter where I took him, he usually found a way to dominate regardless. 100% DAAR is just an insanely powerful piece of utility. The list is endless in terms of what it can shut down.
I want to pull Valkyrie from the featured - she's one of the champs I'm specifically targeting there. However, she'll have a lot to prove in order for her to overtake Black Cat in my eyes.
