The person I thought would be perfect to use in PVP was Bishop, as he would prevent Rescue, Iron Patriot and Mark 42 from doing anything! BUT I didn't win him :( I've got a feeling we will see a lot of Rescue, White Crown Phoenix, P5 Emma Frost, P5 Cyclops, Iron Patriot and Brown and tan Wolverine!
There's been heroes out there with Brutal Strike for a while now... pretty sure X-23 was the first one. I do think the combination of more heroes with Brutal Strike combined with the heroes with Despair will help thin the herd of Rescues. I think Elektra will see a good bit of play at first, just because Internal Bleeding being the DOT you can't heal away.

I always run a Ghost Tank agent anyway, so Rescue is always screwing up my agent's counters and rarely touches my heroes.

That is a big part of why in the last two seasons, once I finished the side quests in PvP, I pretty much gave up on it. Battles were taking way too long, and half of them were giving CVEs after spending 8 minutes beating on Rescue.
I'll open a thread where people can post ideas about quickly defeating rescue using only CP heroes ,not LB or Spec Ops heroes. Just asking you, what agent class do you use in PVP and what is your team setup while going offline(defense team). Just don't mention heroes who are gained from LB or Spec Ops heroes.
