MANIAC APPETITE - Player's team successful basic and swipe attacks against the opponent with Victim debuff apply stack of Maniac Appetite, increasing team's Critical Damage and Critical Attack chance. Stack's count begins to decrease after a short amount of time.

"So that's it, huh? We're some kind of Suicide squad?"
The worst of the worst just got even better. The newly refactored Harley Quinn and Deadshot form the latest team known as the Suicide Squad. As of the 3.6 Update, Enchantress joins their ranks as a strong counter to opponents that have a focus on critical attacks. With each instance of resisting a critical attack, the SSQ team member is healed for 10 seconds. This is intensified by Harley Quinn being immune to Critical Attacks and having the ability to steal a random stat from your opponent.
In addition to a successful Ranged Attack from Deadshot having a chance to disable the movement of his opponent, there is the possibility for Enchantress' passive to steal part of the opponent's current power.
To top things off, Harley reduces the cost of the Suicide Squad's team's Power bar cost. This means more special abilities, more often and an unpredictable but well-rounded team.
Suicide Squad Enchantress (Legendary, Arcane)

Unlimited Power – Successful Ranged attacks performed by Enchantress or Suicide Squad teammates steal part of opponent's current Power.
Suicide Squad Harley Quinn (Legendary, Agility)
The Suicide Squad – Harley gains bonuses from Deadshot and Harley Quinn teammates. She is immune to critical attacks and grants her team increased critical attack resistance.
Psychoanalyze – When hitting an opponent for the first time, Harley randomly reduces one of their stats and steals part of it to share with her teammates. She can steal, Critical Attack chance, Critical Attack damage, Fast Attack chance, Defense or Blocking. Stolen stats can be stacked. Effects end if Harley is KO’ed.

“People said the age of heroes would never come again.”
You can’t go wrong with any of the team benefits here. Cyborg’s team damage boost is a common staple for a Justice League team. When stacked with the temporary attack boost for Mythic Wonder Woman when she defeats an opponent, momentum can pick up quickly.
For an offensive focused team, The Flash will grant you an unblockable special ability or you can benefit from Aquaman adding armor piercing to all basic attacks.
Defensive-minded players will gravitate towards teams that include Batman so all teammates can ignore damage from one special ability per battle. The now Legendary status Justice League Superman improves the defense of your entire Justice League team and benefits from being paired with and against any Batman or Wonder Woman. Finally, Aquaman can revive a knocked-out teammate when he uses his Supermove.

“And You Thought You Knew Every Batman Story...”
The core of this team really revolves around Robin and Catwoman. Robin’s “Combo Kid “ passive keeps your combo meter up, which makes your abilities more effective. Catwoman’s “Blinding Strike “passive allows you to keep pressure on after using an ability by blinding the opponent to prevent attacks against your BN teammates. These passives in tandem create a well-balanced team.
Offensive-minded players will benefit from adding Batman to their third slot. Batman’s second special has a chance to utilize his third ability at no cost, which pairs well with Robin’s passives. As the latest member of the Batman Ninja team, Legendary Gorilla Grodd is also a great offensive option. His “Active Shield’ special will allow you reflect incoming damage back on your opponent. Grodd’s “Master Plan” passive rewards each BN teammate for landing a lethal attack with additional power bars as well.
For those who want to add staying power to their team, Ninja Lord Joker’s passive can revive up to two teammates against a team that has a Batman character. Gorilla Grodd’s “Dramatic Reversal” passive can feed into his “Mind Force” special ability which will share it’s healing effects among the whole team. Catwoman’s “9 Lives“ passive will allow for your BN team to become temporarily immortal at low health. All of these benefits can give you an edge in any prolonged fight.
Harley Quinn is unique in that just having her on your roster will provide a benefit to all of your BN characters! Even if she is not included on your team, your character will get a bonus to their attack and health.

If she is on your roster, all BN heroes gain an additional percentage of Harley’s base attack and health without gear, Talents or Passive Effects. Bonus activates in combat.
Benefits from the passive abilities of Batman Ninja teammates.
These newly refactored villains are not to be taken lightly. One of this team’s strengths is damage-over-time (DoT), which makes them especially strong against teams with high defense and crit resist. They also control the fight by keeping opponents stunned, including being able to reflect stuns back at an opponent.
If The Joker is active and an opponent tags-in a teammate, which his special 3 can force them to do, there is a chance they will be stunned. The team has numerous abilities that can place a DoT on the opponent, which are boosted in strength from The Joker, as well as any basic attack thanks to Poison Ivy’s passive. With your opponent’s resistance to stun and DoT reduced from Harley Quinn, she and Ivy can truly wreak havoc. While active, Poison Ivy heals herself and her LOA teammates for a percent of DoT dealt.
Killing Joker – When anyone is defeated on either team, The Joker gains an increase to damage for the remainder of the battle. When The Joker is defeated, a poison bomb detonates and stuns the opponent for a brief time.
Joker Venom – Last Laugh The Joker and League of Anarchy teammates deal increased damage over time (DoT).
Caught you off guard – When Last Laugh The Joker is active, any time an opponent tags-in, they may be stunned.
It’s not me, it’s you – Teammates targeted by stun attacks gain a chance to reflect them, stunning the attacker instead. Harley also increases Hero XP earnings for all combatants within the same roster.
Let your guard down – Heartbreaker Harley Quinn reduces the opposing team’s stun resistance and DoT resistance
Straight to the heart – Until she is knocked out, Heartbreaker Harley Quinn and her teammates deal increased damage on opponents while they are stunned. Critical Hits against Harley and League of Anarchy teammates are greatly reduced in damage.
Entangling Vines – Ivy’s special abilities Bed of Thorns and Root Pound disable evade, ranged, rush and jump attacks of the opponent for a limited time.
Toxins – Until Poison Ivy is knocked out, basic and swipe attacks dealt by League of Anarchy teammates do additional damage as DoT.
Regrowth – While Entangling Poison Ivy is the active combatant, she heals herself and her League of Anarchy teammates for a percentage of the DoT dealt.
CW fans rejoice! Green Arrow’s Power Drain has a chance to steal power from your enemy and give it to your team, which reduces being on the receiving end of your enemies’ offensive abilities. He is a popular pairing with White Canary, who can add to your equipment’s base critical attack chance and maybe even get you a zero power cost Electric Arrow ability use for Green Arrow.
Both versions of Supergirl have great support benefits which add a lot of longevity to an MV team through their defensive abilities: Armored Supergirl gives her team an edge in battle by providing a starting amount of power and can provide critical attack immunity; while Multiverse Supergirl shores up her team’s defenses if they are moderately wounded.
Black Lightning can make things tough for opponents who have a tendency to use abilities far too often.
Batwoman’s increased special attack damage from each MV team buff paired with Captain Cold’s shield will ensure an aggressive, but safe, start to any fight for the team. She is another good candidate to team up with White Canary, who has the ability to make Batwoman’s Special 1 free, which, when used, provides Batwoman with a chance to perform a zero power cost Special 3. Bam! Domino effect!
The Flash provides great offensive benefits to his teammates and can be a great 3rd member on any Multiverse-centric team, allowing MV teammates to fire off their specials often.
