1.)  How viable is this superstar?

VERY viable....minimum of a 12 SHS and good odds on going first is nothing to cry about, and some VERY good support cards and the ability to run any build you want in him...it's hard to build a bad Edge deck

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

The Rated R Superstar
Reversal: Special
Reverse any Action card or any card with a title that starts with the letter "R" and end your opponent’s turn.
Search your Arsenal for 1 card with a title that starts with the letter "R," reveal it to your opponent, put it into your hand, and shuffle your Arsenal.
This card is -2F for every Superstar-specific card in your Ring area.

AKA, the "God Card" in AA...this card can shut down so much stuff....and you get three of them.....

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

Honestly, never did....but heard he won a world championship qualifier once back in the day

4.)  How well does the Superstar fare in whichever format you built them in be it VC/VAA/NXT/VR/Non-Virtual

You name the format and he's good in it....his pure-revo version may not be top tier but he's pretty damn good too thanks to the storyline

5.)  Final Thoughts on this Superstar?

If it's possible to be both underrated and top-tier....then he really is....he can do it all

6.) Since this Superstar is a Legacy one (in that he was in the game before Virtual) can you elaborate a little on how Virtual has changed this Superstar?

Flunder-Edge was sick in its day, he never really got kicked down a touch, but the whole plunge thing became more common so you prepared for him almost by accident because of that.....but "I got a big hand and GO" is still a winnable strategy if you build correctly
