There are strong reasons why I call these Marvel Puzzle Quest Dark Reign characters “worst in the game”. Some seasoned players might disagree with me. Whatever your feelings, these characters have serious issues to consider if you plan to play with them competitively.
This version of Wolverine arguably has the best healing power of any of the characters, but it doesn’t make up for its flaws. Patch’s Berserker Rage power does instant damage, but it also drops strike tiles for both teams. At its highest levels you’re putting your own team in jeopardy for nearly 1000 points of damage per turn. His Best There Is power is only effective if he has the highest attack stats on your team, or if he is the last man standing. Sure, Patch Wolverine might save the day if your other two characters are downed, but it’s a better strategy to build a team that keeps each other alive.
Spider Man (Bag Man)
I’m old enough to have read the original Alien Symbiote story arc in “Amazing Spider-Man” comics, so I applaud the game developers for trolling us with this character. “Bag Man” Spider Man is nearly useless. His purple support power creates web tiles that only Bag Man, Classic Spider Man, and Venom can use. You can’t use Bag Man and Classic Spider Man at the same time; this leaves only Venom as a partner. Bag Man’s yellow power relies on web tiles for greater effect. His purple power needs to be built up for yellow to be worthwhile. This two power combo requires extra turns, and relies too heavily on one character’s survival. I keep Bag Man on my roster ironically, because I’m a jerk. One day I’ll build him to a high level to hurt other players’ feelings by defeating them with the second worst character.
Invisible Woman (Classic)
Invisible Woman is the worst character in Marvel Puzzle Quest. Her blue and green powers use the same two tier process as Bag Man Spider Man. She’s a 4 star (very rare) character so it takes her forever to level up. Unless you get a blue power cover first, and a green power second, don’t bother playing with her. The green power is awful without the blue, and her blue power is not that great without green. Yellow is fairly useless. It prevents the weakest character from being targeted directly, but they still take team damage. I only keep Invisible Woman in my roster because she’s often required as a character to unlock certain Special Event Missions. I’ve built her up to level 50 and she’s still the first to die in every situation. Her costly, unbalanced powers can get your whole team downed.
