There has been a Dark Avengers Featured Event in Marvel Puzzle Quest Dark Reign, where only Dark Avenger teams can compete. It’s a safe bet there will be another Dark Avenger event in the future, so it’s a good idea to build a good team if you want to compete for prizes. You available resources will strongly influence how you build a strong Dark Avengers team.
Building a Strong Dark Avengers Team
Who you put in your team initially depends on which characters you have available. Venom, Yelena Belova, and Daken are prizes in the prologue missions, so you might use them to start. Daken’s special powers are all passive; whatever Attack Points (AP) he earns are fuel for other characters powers. Since his highest damage colors are purple, green, and black, he’s a good counterpart for Yelena, Bullseye, Venom, Ragnarok, or Moonstone.
If you have the opportunity, add Bullseye to your team; he’s a great counterpart to Daken and Yelena Belova. Daken fills the board with attack tiles, and Bullseye drops protect tiles; keep Daken out front by raising his level. Yelena Belova is the best Dark Avenger support character. If you use Bullseye, pair her with him.
Use Versatile Characters
Limited roster space is always an issue with Marvel Puzzle Quest Dark Reign. Some characters are useful for multiple Featured Events. Venom’s useful as a “tank” early in the game when he is one of your stronger characters, but eventually that wears out. His powers aren’t that great; he becomes a character used just to feed black and purple AP to Yelena Belova. However, you may want to keep Venom in your roster for “One Star” Featured Events. I had to skip the One Star tournament because I didn’t have enough common characters in my roster to make a team.
Ragnarok is another character who’s not that great at face value. He’s basically a damage sponge to feed red and green AP to the rest of your team. However, Ragnarok is powered up in Lightning Rounds, so you may want to keep him in your roster. Daken and Ragnarok make a good team matched up with Moonstone or Yelena Belova.
Make Room in Your Roster for Ares
Though I wasn’t a top finisher in the Dark Avengers Featured Event, I did earn two Ares covers as prizes. Unfortunately, due to limited roster slots, I opted to sell those covers. Tactically, that was a bad choice. I probably should have sold Ragnarok to make room for Ares. Ares is not the type of character I generally use, I don’t like characters who damage themselves or their team. There is no denying Ares is a formidable foe. I think twice about fighting anybody who has a high level Ares in their team. He is a beast, that can crush the toughest teams. Team him up with Moonstone, Daken, or Ragnarok.
