    I don't understand why players believe that the characters in-game should reflect the extent of power their comic book counterparts have. Air Walker has Power Gain, Armor Break, and some more abilities. He's fine. He's not good, but he's fine.

    If they are super overpowered and unbeatable in comics, personally I would rather see them as a final boss or not in the game at all. For example, Dormammu, Silver Surfer, Terrax, Magneto(Finally getting justice), and a few more, are just too broken to really be in the game, they should be the most broken champs ever. Especially silver surfer. That’s why I really don’t want to have Galactus as a playable champ.
    I agree with you. These characters shouldn't be playable. But now that they are, why should they be broken? They really shouldn't be going off of comic-book "greatness". That just leads to imbalance.
    It’s very apparent that you don’t read tons of comics. I have personally read thousands of old comics. So when kabam releases a character based off of a specific comics book, I expect there to be some inspiration. Dormammu can pretty much not die, Silver Surfer is one of the most powerful beings in the universe, thus they shouldn’t be in the game. Sure, they are fun to have, but if they’re going to add them it should be an alternate version, not the original from the comic.

    Vision Aarkus and Black Widow Clair Voyant are two very obscure heroes that many didn’t know about. I have personally read the comics with them in it, and Kabam did quite a good job mirroring their powers into game. This update went as far as using the vintage comic cover as the opening loading screen, so I would have hoped as much.

    Another example of this is Hit-Monkey- I was honestly very surprised by the choice to add him, as I hadn’t read almost anything about him. I think Kabam did an amazing job portraying his powers in game. There are definitely more champions like this, but you get the points.

    It would also be disappointing for me if Kabam was to add some of the incredibly powerful Omega-Level Mutants like Hope Summers, Frank Richards, and Legion. These should all be game breaking champions if they were to enter the game. Plus Sentinel, who is a good champion, should be insane. No mutant could stop the sentinels except for a select few. Not to mention someone of the skill or science variety. They would most likely get pulverized.

    Finally, we have the Kabam created champions. These are personally my favorite. Whenever they come out with a new champion that they created they release 1-2 comics that go with them as they did with Guilly 2099 and Aegon. I find this super fun because not only do we get a new champion, but we also get to read their backstory. Plus, if Kabam keeps the streak they have, they champion will most likely be good. Think about it, Kabam hasn’t released a champion they created that was considered bad.(And no, if you were wondering, punisher 2099 was not made by kabam.)
    The problem arises when you have these Cosmic and Mutant powerhouses, where they're literally able to bend and warp reality against Skill champions, who are just humans who possess enhanced agility, endurance, strength, etc. If Kabam were to create characters based on the comics, well, the Skill class would logically be the worst class with no champions that would be able to even be in the same tier as the top Cosmic and Mutant champions. Would you rather have that imbalance?
    Thus these insane champs shouldn’t be added. And blade and quite a few others have powers, or some sort of enhancements. Like nicks lmd
    Again, I agree that they shouldn't be added. However, now that they are, comics should not determine their "greatness" within the game.

    the reason why kabam create great good average and bad champion is because they can't have all great champions. theres gotta be a balance in the battlerealm. So with that being said i can careless about air walker, never never of that guy before before this game. what i am really dissaponted is how they create silver surfer. they made us wait for 12 months, and then come out with trashy silver surfer. i hope cosmic ghost rider is nothing like silver surfer and air walker.

    I nearly had a stroke reading this

    There is nothing they can do about the ones already added, but please no more.

    Are you guys basing your opinions on Seatin's gameplay of Airwalker? Because, honestly, Seatin is pretty ass at playing him well/effectively.

    I'm not saying Airwalker is amazing (and I even agree the first fight is a bit painful), but he's a damn sight better than what Seatin displays.

    It painful to watch that he didn't use sp while charging heavy which mess his damage potencial a lot, lagacy gameplay did Airwalker more justice
    Also is the same case with Storm X which put her in unimpression view
    Yeah, I just don't understand why seatin can't/ won't/ is unable to watch a few videos of people unlocking the full potential of the champion in question before making his own video, like he does a very good job on some champs and then he makes some videos which give pro players cringe induced vomiting fits.
    For instance, watch his 'Revisiting Dormammu' video, anybody who has experience with Dormammu will immediately point out the mistakes and there are quite a few in that video

    These things don't matter if a noob like me plays like that but seatin is the biggest mcoc youtuber and has a lot of influence on the community, so people watching videos of him using the champ inaccurately get the wrong idea, and then that opinion will spread through to the entire community.



    The gwenpool revisit was equally cringy, vomit inducing.

    In comics air walker is one of the weakest heralds, but his loyalty and obedience to galactus is what sets him apart ( maybe why Kabam had galactus do a cameo on air walker’s sp3 which IMO is a very nice touch). He died a lot (maybe why he is paired with dragon man... hehe) but because of his relationship to the devourer of worlds, he was once resurrected...

    Comics serve as a basis for the characters so one cant help compare or even expect the powers these characters wield in game. In comics terrax is more powerful than air walker but not in game. Silver surfer in game is also a disappoint. But the characters strength in game I think is bases on how Kabam fits these characters into their

    As a comic fan, for these characters to be in game is already a bonus. But yes Kabam, why not do a worthy herald soon. It can be cosmic gr... or if you really want to be true to the comics, i guess that would be Morg (many consider him as the strongest) .

    Can deadpool reach this damage ?

    Yeah look at this



    where is a rank 3 six-star DP X force and where is the sp2

    The problem is King Groot has the lowest attack rating in-game and air walker is right after him :(

    I agree. Airwalker, isn't OP, but he is still better than a good chunk of the champs in the game. The problem with releasing champs like Dr.Doom, NIck Fury, and Guilly 2099 is that it's almost taken for granted that every new champ released has to fit in Setin's high-demi god tier or beyond, or they are considered "trash".

    I agree with your point generally. People often compare all champs to those considered "beyond God tier." But in this case I think his long ramp up, lack of any considerable resistance or immunity, and lack of solid utility make him below what I expect from a 2020 champ.
    Very very solid point. I assume that his base stats are so low because of the interesting Sp3 interaction with Galactus. This is actually pretty cool, but leaves him (as has been stated by others) very below average in comparison to what he could be. It wouldn't surprise me if he did get a slight tune up sooner than later.

    He's a defense champ (annoying!). His base attack is so low and gets immediately boosted at start of the first fight and then the next 2 he wins. So for a 5-65, his actual attack is 1760 + 264, then +264, +264. So not that low actually, by the time you can use the L3, your attack is already significantly higher than base, but the CPU doesn't get the 2nd and 3rd additional attack unless he kills you.

    The cosmic class needs fewer lambs for the slaughter by mystics. Too many buffs on buffs on buffs with more quick temporary buffs on the side just to fuel MD. They aren't even strong enough to require such a potent weakness. They've made so many of them underwhelming, and then added in that they get ruthlessly dominated by any decent mystic.
