1.)  How viable is this superstar?
He's extremely viable. Probably the best of the legends from V5.


2.)  Is there a Superstar Specific Card that you'd like to spotlight?
 There sure is.

The Legend Lives On
Reversal: Special
Reverse any Chain, Heat, Throwback, Volley, or Restricted Modification Symbol card and end your opponent's turn. Discard your hand.
When this card is in your Ring area, during your turn your Maneuver cards in your Ringside pile and played from your Ringside pile are Heat cards, and your Maneuver cards played from your hand are Chain cards.
F: 0     D: 2     Unique     Errata
ARM

This is the straw that stirs the drink. You want BASH multi chains poof done. Want annoying Can Only be Reversed Chains poof done. This opens SOOOO many options for Showstopper to go down.

3.)  How have you built said superstar?  How did it work out?

He's taken me to the top 4 of Worlds before. So I'd say he's worked well. Took him last year and made a horrible call that cost me the match. Had I been smarter who knows what may of happened last year.

4.)  How well does the Superstar fare in whichever format you built them in be it VC/VAA/NXT/VR/Non-Virtual
He's pretty top tier regardless the format. Has so many routes you can't guess his build.

5.)  Final Thoughts on this Superstar?
He's in a great place now. In my opinion he's the best of the V5 legends. Looking forward to trying new builds for him.
