MSF: Best Iso-8 for Captain Marvel

Marvel Strike Force

Welcome to the Iso-8 guide for Captain Marvel, the latest in our series about the popular game Marvel Strike Force. In this series we look at the best Iso-8 enhancements for MSF characters. While some may refer to Iso-8 as simply “mods” like in other mobile games, we will look to stay true to the naming convention of the Marvel universe and the developers over at Scopely. We at certainly do not claim to have all of the answers in this game, but we do our research and look to use every hero and villain we write about extensively. These are Iso-8 recommendations based on the character’s kit and actual gameplay to help you in your quest to dominate in Marvel Strike Force. Note that these Iso-8 classes may differ from one team makeup to another, so feel free use this as guide knowing that these can change in differing situations within MSF’s gameplay.

Today’s character to review is Captain Marvel. The star of her own self-titled Marvel movie, Captain Marvel is a Hero, Cosmic, Bio, Brawler who is a member of the Kree, Military and A-Force factions in Marvel Strike Force and fits well in a variety of lineups. Let’s take a look at the stats we want to focus on enhancing through Iso-8 modifications in MSF.

Main Focus: Offense/Damage. Captain Marvel is one of the better characters in Marvel Strike Force and has a ton of value as a damage dealer. Formerly, she fit well on Brawler teams in MSF’s Alliance Wars, usually saved for defense, and while the game has evolved a lot since this was first published, she continues to be a high-value character in many facets of the game. Because she deals very good Damage already, boost the power of her Binary attack and resulting AoE and her other attacks by adding even more Damage to Captain Marvel to enhance this strength of her kit.

Additional Areas to Focus: Health, Critical Chance and Critical Damage. Critical Chance and Critical Damage are only going to add to the Offense/Damage mentioned above, and added Health is especially valuable given she heals herself for 20% of her Max Health on each turn.


Ideal Iso-8 Setup for Captain Marvel in Marvel Strike Force:

Ee know how Iso-8 works in Marvel Strike Force, as a progression system with some customization for the characters. While Captain Marvel’s kit does not specifically make mention of Critical Chance or Critical Damage, as a high-damager dealer already, enhancing these stats will undoubtedly help her be more effective. On the A-Force team, which currently has 4 members, she fits best as a Raider or Striker. However, depending on the lineup used and teammates around her, I have seen where she has been used as a Skirmisher too. It really comes down to how she is used on your roster and your use of characters in-game.
