I'm not sure why the Deadpool complaints. Aside from being an actual fun character play, he plays pretty nicely. Yeah most of his debuffs are just for show, but stuff like nerf and bugs do end up making you breeze through things. And as someone who has had Deadpool almost kick my ass in PVP I'll say people shouldn't under estimate him. Dr. Strange or Emma are not so great when they're sulling bugged and can't even attack. The thing with Deadpool like with most characters, is that you need to find him a good partner. I think the best partners for Wade right now are the ladies that came with him, Tigra and Val, cause Tigra's bleeds make up for Deadpool's lack of power (Though he attacks pretty well for me and I'm only on level 6), and Wade provides some nice distractions for Valkery to built up her set. Also possibly Human Torch.
As for Emma, guess that's going to be the standard price for Spec Ops heroes. I am happy her alt suits came out. I wonder if I should get the Tact Costume since I didn't get it last time, just for the sake of variaty in PVP and cause Ghost Rider's far too common for my comfort. Hmm.
