I played a few more friendly matches today. Overall, not too great. Still trying to find myself a nice, balanced team.
I bit the bullet and tried dropping down to Easy mode for Arcade. I went for the Avengers trophy by using an Avengers themed team with no continues. I got to the bitter end of the last stage and lost it. Zangief ate way too much of my health before I could get rid of him, and came down to Captain American VS. Cable with the TINIEST sliver of health... and the bastard got me with a throw. So frustrating. I tried the stage once more, but of course they threw Wolverine in the mix this time and he always destroys me.
