Captain Cosmic ------ Confirmed. Appears (and is quoted) as a shadow on Omnitron's Rocket Jump. Another shadow appears here, which could be a fellow Prime Warden (though not Fanatic, due to lack of wings. Tempest? Seems to be feminine...). Prime Wardens 14

Supposedly linked to new developments in Tactics. Might be dead or alive.

 

Heroes

Nightmist ------ Somehow linked to the Miststorm.

 

Villains

Spite ------ Somehow linked to Cyst, Grudge, Karnal, Mindphyre and Demon Fist ? Seems to appear, with his mask and chestnut hair on Tachyon's Sucker Punch. Also appears on Wraith's Throwing Knives (Wraith saying « You keep on coming back... » in her quote). Dark Watch 4 and 5 (seems to be consistent with an appearance in Broken City).

A purple flames-covered Spite-like being is also depicted on Visionary's Foresight, and on Broken City's cover. Dark Watch 4

 

 

Objects of speculation

 

Villain

The rocky being (« Rock-Beast ») on Beacon's Focused Blast. Beacon 26

The shadowy creature on Bunker's Artillery Mode. Could be Akash'Butha, since it looks feminine, giant, and made of rock and crystals. Also, it appears in "Virtuoso of the Void" 25, and AA seems to be part of the fight.

The robot version of Legacy, on Legacy's Surge of Strength. Freedom Five Annual 3.

The strange alien creatures on Ra's Flame Spike. Ra, God of the Sun 49.

The green-eyed guy on Ra's Drawn to the Flame. Could be the guy with the vines from the Crackjaw Crew, with a new costume ? So would be the unindentified girl also depicted on this card ? Sentinel Sagas 4.

The feminine Captain Cold wannabee, appearing on Tachyon's Hypersonic Assault. The Wraith 18.

The filter agent appearing on Visionary's Decoy Projection. Is he a normal agent, or a member of Sergeant Steel's unit ? The Inhuman Tempest 25.

 

 

Hinted by Christopher

 

Villain

Voss ------ We could not recognize him. Not sure if it's a good thing or a bad thing (I mean, he wasn't Mr. Universe to begin with, but...).

I'm pretty sure that the new Ra is almost certainly not Thiago. For one thing, they look nothing alike.

And original Ra looks nothing like Blake Washington. The Ennead likely look nothing like their human counterparts either I'd wager.

Really? I think they took on some physical aspects of the 'host'. Classic depiction of Isis for instance are not of a redhead.

He doesn't? Same skin tone, jaw structure, and nose shape. They look a lot alike to me.

The big green guy on lightspeed barrage looks like the 2nd picture from the Biomancer update.

From the single depiction of Blake Washington we have, I don't see the resemblance you do. Especially the skin tone one considering the picture

Although it's still early in the game's storyline, we should assume that the end of SotM shook up the roster a bit. However it seems impossible to tell without direct evidence from the cards.

For example, Haka is the only hero from the original base game not pictured anywhere in Tactics. That would be suspicious except that he belongs to the Prime Wardens and could be saved for a future space-themed expansion. Then again, since the Eternal Haka survived until the Final Wasteline timeline it would also subvert our expectations if he sacrificed himself in battle before Tactics ever began.

There's no way to know who lives and who dies.

Also, Haka is imortal. Which is not to say that the Cosmic Entity couldn't have overwhelmed his imortality or sent him hurtling off into space or something, but he is one of the heroes who would be hardest to kill.

I read immortal/immortality as immoral/immorality.  Makes less sense, but is much more entertaining.

The shape of his face is the same between Ra and Blake Wahington. However, hair color is different, and skin color is up in the air

Note that I only put Thiago as an hypothesis (hence the question mark). I removed the reference about Spike's hair, since he actually HAS chestnut hair in Rook City (as seen on the cover of the Rook city/Infernal Relics bundle).

One interesting thing to note : both "extra characters" ("green energy girl", aka GEG, and Mangrove) for Broken City and For Profit were actually foreshadowed in Flame of Freedom or Uprising, in the same comic (Sentinel Sagas 24 and 32). Could it mean that Highbrow (appearing in Sentinel Sagas 35) will join the cast ?

If, as is theorized by many, there are still two characters to be revealed (one in Broken City, one in For Profit), that would mean that chances are they appear in this list, either in the "confirmed by quotes or art", or in the "speculation" list.

Also to be noted, is that almost all the cast of the Prime Wardens (except Haka, as noted above) have been shown, and their comic is quoted. It seems likely they'll be the next team to be depicted in a stand-alone expansion. Akash'Bhuta, also appearing in a new shape (with crystals instead of vines), could be an oversized villain. No trace of the Sentinels yet...

Bonus : added the comics-reference of the quotes, for all the characters appearing on cards, in order to figure their order of appearance more easily. It's interesting to note that both Mangrove and GEG appear in close numbers of Sentinel Sagas. Also added Argent Adept, since he seems to appear on Bunker's Artillery mode, while the monster fought here seems to be a new shape of Akash'Bhuta, his old nemesis.
