Review by Stormwolf
Todays review is for the Ghost Widow, one of the
LEs that will be packaged with the deluxe
edition of City of Villians, due out at the end
of October. I don't know anything about the
character, so lets just go with the review:
Basics: 52 points, 5 clicks of
life,Flight, 6 range / 1 target, Arachnos team
ability (same as mystic)
Starts out at 9, ends out at 7 with
phase/teleport all the way through. Pretty nice
for a medic, if you need HER to get to the
patient instead of the other way around.
again we run the 9 to 7 route, but we got
poison, steal energy, and pulse wave to sprinkle
through here! makes her dangerous to attack
(team ability), and dangerous to base (poison)
Absolutely incredible! Starts out at 18,
finishes at 15, but with a couple clicks of
supersenses and regeneration along the way!!!!
A 2, followed by a bunch of 1's. But almost a
FULL DIAL OF SUPPORT!
I guarantee she is going to be a staple in all
teams for people who get her. She is the entire
reason I (and probably many others) will buy
City of Villians when it is released! Because of
her, Xorn will only be used in War Zone games.
She has the potential to be a gamebreaker, and
at only 52 points she can fit comfortably into
any team, any scheme.
Tourney Play (300 pts)~
Hell yes! She belongs on this situation, medic
and a little damage too! 5 / 5
won't happen, sadly
Oh, I plan to use
mine regularly! 5 / 5

Today we'll be reviewing GHOST WIDOW from CITY OF
Skip the who she is….because I don’t know. I do know
that the City of Villains giant, special edition,
limited, gold, sealed, super box that has the
COMPLETE SET of these Heroclix costs about $100. So
if you’re like me and don’t play video
games/computer games….you’re basically spending $10
a click. But that’s just for those people that like
a complete set….they wouldn’t possibly make them
tournament legal….oh they are tournament legal?
Well, at least their not broken and must play
They’re all LE’s…and looking at this one, you’ll
thank Zule they are.
POINTS: 52. Flyer with a 6 ranges and single target.
City of Villains team…..what team is that you say?
IT FRICKIN MYSTICS!!! Already Ghost Widow is one of
the cheapest Mystics Available.
MOVEMENT: Phasing through the entire dial. 9
ATTACK: 9, 8 (both with Poison), 8, 7 (both with
steal energy), 7 with pulse wave
DEFENSE: 18, 17, 16 (both with super senses), 15, 15
(both with regeneration)
DAMAGE: 2, 1,1,1,1, Support on every click but the
SCULPT: As a man that designs haunted houses for a
living (www.the-haunt.com if you’re interested) so a
crazy black and white flying chick is one of my
OVERALL: I’ve heard good feedback on these lists.
She’s one of the hardest characters to hit and
kill ever. It’s ridiculous how resilient she is.
Steal Energy, Regeneration, 18 defense and 17
defense with super senses on the second click.
Hard to find a great ability that she does not
have. Support and poison are two abilities will
become even better in the new environments.
She’s amazing alright, but there is NO CARD that
can make anything more then 5 clicks, AKA. Ultimate
Thor only needs to roll a 6 to kill her.
Her damage is still very low, 2 for only a click.
9 attack medic will heal almost anybody
They’re biggest gun will have to take a shot at
her early on. If she’s alive when everyone has taken
some shots,he’ll dominate the game with her high
defense and support.
How often to you have to go out of your way to
kill a paramedic, to stop your opponent from
healing? What if the paramedic was an 18 defense?
She is the ultimate utility character. She flies, so
she can carry. He defense is so high she can tie up
support characters then cut them down with poison.
Speaking of which, poison is an ability that can be
incredible useful in certain matches, such as KC
Green Lantern or Sue Storm Fantastic Four Defense
sharing team. Running the Widow up to either of
these characters will help you out a lot. The
problem with poison is you don’t want to spend the
points on it… now you can. Don’t forget, she fills
the gap for a team medic as well and is by far the
most playable medic that is over 20 points. She’s
also a mystic so she fits very well on wild card
teams. And as a just for the fun of it she has pulse
wave, incase you want to go out with a bang.
The biggest crime of Ghost Widow is she can be good
support on nearly every team imaginable; there are
only a few teams she really would not work for.
She’s exciting, amazing and clearly one of the best
figures of the year. She’s not game changing like
Lockjaw, but she’ll certainly give you a major
advantage….now where did I put that $100 bill?
HE RECEIVES A 5 OUT OF A POSSIBLE 5 THUMBS UP!
