Unlike other attacks that say "This attack does not have this rule" you can velocity multiple times"

Yup, but at 4 dice, getting a Yahtzee is going to be tricky and dealing damage is going to take a bit of luck.

Wanda, on the other hand, just erases things from existence in one shot.

So he has like, 3 guns.
My guess is he will have his wrist guns as his builder, rockets as a kid range ignore Los, and the Gatling gun as a big spender.

OK, busy week for reveals and stuff.

Black Cat card is up:

Maybe a surprise at 3 threat, but a very solid character. A bit of movement, an objective grab, and a guaranteed stagger on a spender attack. I would not be surprised to see her in a lot of lists.

Kraven panel to play:
https://www.atomicmassgames.com/transmissions/panel-to-play-kraven
Not a lot to go with here, but this is my guess: range 3, strength 5 building spear, a "charge" attack spender (range 2 strength 7), a hit and run, bloodhound like Lockjaw, and a reroll like Zemo. If the awkward phrase from the panel "until the end of the turn" continues to read "IF AN OPPONENT MOVES", that would be awesome.

Cassandra Nova sculpt reveal.

Still seems out of the blue for her this soon, but Jean needed a friend I guess.

Speaking of out of the blue; Sam Wilson Cap and War Machine cards and starts:

War Machine is a pure breatstick as expected. I like Sam's utility and the new leadership sounds very intriguing. He's just going to be running low on power.

Well despite being Charles Mummudrai, Cassandra is very much a Jean villain.
Sam is to me very interesting. HE seems better under Steves leadership where he can carge for 1 or reposition for 1 or several things.
Warmachine with Doomed Prophecy is a scary Concept. Either he has a 9str beam attack or up to 4 rockect barrages that are str 8. OR if you 100% need something dead, use his spender with a 12 dice attack

Kraven's up: https://twitter.com/atomicmassgames/status/1400091679697346565/photo/1

Innate rerolls are fun but I was hoping for an aura reroll to help out Spider-Foes' notorious four-strength builders. A reskinned Interdimensional Bloodhound is nice but a lot easier for Lockjaw to pull off than Kraven.

Corner the Beast seems clutch, and no restrictions per turn so if you have the power you could hand out unshakeable bleeds to each character in range. Having advance triggers on both his attacks is awesome, and the auto-bleed on his builder is nice.

I suppose we'll wait for the tactics cards but I was hoping for more of a force multiplier with Kraven. Something to help out Doc Ock, Gobbo, and Mysterio with those four-die builders. Spider-Foes' action economy could use some help. I hardly ever have the power to actually use the leadership ability.

In fact, I remember I played a game the other week on TTS using my Syndicate/Spider-Foes roster. Opponent selected a flip secure so I went with Spider-Foes. I think I ran Goblin, Doc Ock, Taskmaster, Lockjaw, and MODOK in 18 points. Managed to squeak out a close game without ever using the leadership.

I was hoping for a five-die builder... come on AMG, yer killing us Spider Foes over here. Goblin, Doc Ock, Lizard, Mysterio all have four die power-per-damage builders. Kraven as well unless you double attack. Really struggling to see how to improve the Spider Foe power economy.

Very durable for his cost. Great objective holder for the team, particulary with the RNG 3 builder to make sure he can comfortably sit on points.

Haha I guess I was so salty about the builder that I didn't mention the selling points; Medium move on a Medium base, above-average defense stats for a 3 Pointer. Damage reduction and healing factor. Definitely a strong character in-affiliation, I think Spider Foes have a defense problem that Mysterio and Lizard help to negate.
Spider Foes have move effects, asset theft, all sorts of throws, and above-average physical defense. All told they're a pretty solid faction in terms of abilities, it's the lack of damage and ability to gain energy from attacks that I think keeps them from thriving as a faction.

I run a Foes/Syndicate list, with Syndicate for lower points values and Foes for when Hammers were in play (+1 attack die? Thank you very much!). Unfortunately at higher point values I think they get outclassed by four- and five-threat characters that just deal more damage. I think I'll try the reverse - Foes at lower point values, Syndicate at 17-20 to run MODOK and a few higher-threat flex characters.

Edited for grammar.

The good news is he doesn't really need power. On a builder, the Oscorp Tech kind of functions as a neutral +1 dmg that you don't get power for more often than not. A lot of what makes an affiliation powerful these days though is what their tactics cards do and Otto/Norman's team up is very good for a team that mostly hangs out on secures. I'll be curious to see what other cards they bring to the table.

Yeah I'm looking forward to seeing the tactics cards for the gang. Definitely agree that Lizard doesn't need much power but Well Laid Plans and other clutch tactic cards tend towards the expensive side, so having to spend a power just to do damage on the builder is kind of frustrating for me. Infinity Formula has been a good fit for me with them for that reason.

Generic term the community uses for a character's basic attack that generates power. It's a catch all term for "after this attack is resolved, this character gains power equal to the damage dealt" or similar effects.

I think this was smart marketing considering the Deadpool demand. It allowed them to really up the price.

Wonder if we're going to see Vengeance, and an updated Ghost Rider/ Midnight Sons crew?
