As an extraordinary assassin, Bullseye’s rules are geared towards one thing: damaging his opponents. He has an impressive array of attacks and powers to that end, from something basic like his Throwing Knife attack up to his signature power, I Never Miss.

Pin Cushion is a special attack Bullseye can perform, as he grabs a handful of whatever objects are handy and hurls them at his target. This pocket debris and subway tokens turn into a lethal Strength 5 barrage. Pin Cushion ignores any cover the target might have and imposes the Bleed special condition, and after he makes the attack, Bullseye follows up with another Pin Cushion attack thanks to the Rapid Fire special rule. Not a bad way to spend 4 Power!

Always hitting what he aims at is pretty much Bullseye’s whole deal. Thanks to the I Never Miss reactive power, it’s true on the tabletop as well! After making an attack that deals no damage to his target, Bullseye can spend 1 Power to use I Never Miss, which automatically deals 1 damage to his target. I Never Miss is a great way to chip damage on a target that’s about to become Dazed and pairs well with Bullseye’s Knife Throw attack, which costs no power to use.

Of course, Bullseye isn’t the only person out there able to perform ranged attacks. If someone is brave enough to take a shot at him, Bullseye has another trick up his sleeve with Parting Shot. This reactive power costs 2 Power to use after an attack targeting Bullseye is resolved. The attacker immediately suffers 1 damage (perhaps as Bullseye throws their own bullet or arrow back at them) and makes a Short advance away from the attacker… hopefully into cover.

Angela and Enchantress are spoiled, and both seem to be game changers...

Enchantress will be very disruptive in scenario-centric teams, and Angela might be the new-hotness beatstick!

FYI, there was some kind of mixup at the distributor level and this pack went out before it was supposed to. These two won't be readily available until next year:

Angela is cool, but doesn't hit quite as hard as other 5 costers. She's a super exciting addition to the Guardians though and between her and Enchantress, just what the Asgardians needed to feel like a fleshed out team with some varied options.

Looks like mine just missed the cut off and went out in the post this afternoon. I think this week was the original release date before they were pushed back due to Covid-19. I wonder why they don’t want to just release them know unless they only have enough stock for certain regions.

Pacing releases most likely. Sept was a heavy month already with 3 boxes and next month has 3 more with a terrain pack and event kit. They said they shifted releases around so the X-Men could launch this year, which likely just means they pushed back this box and a few others to fill the gap left by bringing the X-Men up to Nov/Dec.

Waging a years-long war on crime requires a particular set of skills, and Frank Castle has them in spades. His training as a Marine sniper has made the Punisher a crack shot, able to snap off quick hip shots at his targets. The Hip Fire attack represents one of these rapid, shorter range attacks, allowing the Punisher to make a followup attack against his target. The Range 5 Aimed Shot is where his sniper talents really show, however. This Strength 7 Physical attack costs 3 Power to use, but benefits from the Pierce special rule, which allows Castle to modify one of his target’s defense dice. Anyone he tags with an Aimed Shot also suffers both the Stun and Slow special conditions.

The Punisher doesn’t mete out justice at random. He picks his targets carefully and punishes them for their actions. In-game, this is represented by his Active power No More Second Chances. With it, the Punisher issues uncompromising vengeance against a target for their actions. This power allows the Punisher to discard between one and three Punishment Tokens, adding that number of dice to an attack roll. With it, he can deliver a heavy one-two punch with Hip Fire, or go all-in on a 10 dice Aimed Shot attack.

How do you get these tokens? Through one of Castle’s other powers, The Fallen. Working with Frank Castle is a dangerous business: his friends, family, and allies often find themselves in the crosshairs of those who seek to do the Punisher harm. The Fallen is an innate power that represents the burning rage within the Punisher. With it, any time a friendly character is dazed or KO’d, he gains a Punishment token to use against his foes. The Fallen doesn’t require the Punisher to be nearby an ally either, so he can comfortably sit in the back lines and gather tokens to use on his longer-range attacks.

If an enemy does get close to the Punisher, they’ll soon regret it. Wherever he fights, Frank Castle is careful to set up improvised booby traps, turning the landscape into a war zone. His (appropriately named) War Zone power reflects this. After spending 3 Power, the Punisher chooses a terrain feature within Range 4. The blocks of explosives he’s packed inside go up with the touch of a button, detonating to hit nearby opponents for 2 damage and destroying the terrain, leaving them out of cover and vulnerable to his next shot.

Crime Syndicate has some dope people.

And the way that they've built these characters gives me some good hope for either Hood's Gang or Hood's Illuminati in the future.

Very happy to be playing this game

I know it isn't in the cards, but i'd love for some "pet classes" that get generic cronies. Kingpin feels weird as he is portrayed here, and I feel like some models are just begging for minions, Doombots, etc...

Criminal Syndicate is really exciting. Great mix of characters that open up some good dual affiliation rosters for characters that were kind of stuck.

Yeah, you could do Syndicate or Cabal or Syndicate and spidervillains.
Some good dual rosters ideas.
