ok so hold on a second here...are you saying that the Springboard Extreme Kick is a starter card and the Corkscrew Neckbreaker is an ultra rare? The Kick does more damage than the Neckbreaker AND you get it in the starter? that doesnt seem right. the Neckbreaker is his TMF so id make it do more like 30 damage and be at like 35 or 40 fortitude. The Kick could be the 15 for 15.

well like Creed said when I posted Johnny Nitro as a extremist...extremi st dont have storylines. maybe you can change Morrison to a regular superstar then have his storyline change him into a extremist kinda like what Jeff's does plus you can just drop new breed and become a extremist anyways.

The neckbreaker is his finisher so maybe you want to change the kick & neckbreaker around or maybe make the kick kinda like the sexy boy atomic drop that micheals got in his starter and have it have like a hybrid reversals where it reverses follow-ups but have it at like -10F if used as a trademark.

Here's my problem with Morrison: his original ability is abysmal and his Storyline ability isn't. His handsize is crap and his Storyline makes him draw. His SSV is middling and his Storyline makes him a star.

So, in short, there's no reason at all to play Morrison without Shaman of Sexy.

Perhaps if his ability's two portions weren't at complete cross-purposes, he'd be more viable. Being able to pick up Assaults is okay with a 6 hand (Extremes might be something to watch), but making him play a card before every move he can grab is way too much of a drawback. You're saying that Morrison has to do something before he can punch somebody?

but seeing as Morrison actually does follow up his maneuvers alot...what do you suggest? make the 2nd line something like "your extreme:follow-up and assult:follow-up have momentum" or something?

Can I get a HELL NO?

How's about something more balanced like:

Hand: 6
SSV: 2

Extremist Ability: Once during each of your turns, you may discard a card: put one non-Unique Extreme or one non-Unique Assault from your Ringside into your hand.

You must discard a card from your hand before playing a non-Follow-up Extreme or Assault.

Great idea, but why did you decrease his SSV? he is John Morrison though...SSV of 3 sounds fair

Superstar value of 3 seems to me that he is a good and experience wrestler.I think that he is not old enough to get a 3.

I'd give Morrison the same SSV as Umaga....3 seems good to me.
