I started playing yesterday and ran into a dilemma. Do I play as the character that's been my favorite since I was a kid, but has a playstyle that doesn't seem particularly exciting to me (Colossus)? Or do I play as a character that seems like he has more interesting skills, but is (in my opinion) a super lame character (Hawkeye). Or go with a middle ground option that I think is so-so as a character and looks like he has some maybe interesting options (Cyclops).
OR just say "fuck it", pay a few bucks, and rock out as Squirrel Girl?
Colossus is so cool, but his skills are so boring! Like, one of his starting skills is "punch". 10 or 15 levels later, he learns "some other punch that calculates damage using a different stat". At 30 or whatever, he learns a third punch that uses some third stat. Beyond that, he's got a tackle and a ground pound or something, but nothing fun like "12% of your arrows will shoot poison gas or lightning or whatever"
*edit: Apparently Colossus learns that sick "HUAAAARGGHH" explosion thing he does in the old X-Men arcade game at level 30! I know it's a terrible reason to pick a character, but it might be what tips it for me...
