Sorry about my long absence but finals hit me like a magog perplexed up three times carrying a soda machine, roling double sixes and knocking me off a building. So what do we have today? Scarlet witch. Move over destiny? probably not. im looking at the rookie right now, and she does have some potential. Popping people from from 10 range for two damage is nice, especialy with the ability to reroll if need be but i do feel the 15 points she has over destiny would be better spend on a feat card or on upgrading your medic. The exp is more of the same, except she actualy breaches secondary attacker territory at 49 points and a decent attack with Ult Xmen TA to bring it up. The vet is a nice deblackpanterer but at 62 points shes over costed for what she does, id rather have three destinies and a franklin richards.

100: 3.122/5 the rookie fits well here because destiny cant really work
200: 3.557/5 pretty nice here as well seeing as how sole purpose figures are tough in this point format
300:2.556/5 easily overshadowed by destiny
400: 2.443/5 see above
500: 2.121/5 see above, twice

Today we are going to be looking at Scarlet Witch from the Fantastic Forces Set.

Scarlet Witch is beautiful women whose power is to cause others bad luck.  Which is apparently a very typical power for beautiful women I have met.

Cost and Abilities: 

Rookie =  35 Points, 5 clicks of life, 10 range/single target , Brotherhood of Evil Mutants team ability

Experienced = 49 Points, 5 clicks of life, 10 range/single target, Ultimate X-Men Ability Team Ability

Veteran = 62 Points, 6 clicks of life, 10 range/single target, Ultimates Team Ability

Which is best?  Well, the first thing to notice is that the rookie is half the price of the veteran.  The main difference between all the characters is team ability.  You must get over the Ultimate abilty with probability control.  Yes I know it is cool to probability control a stealthed opponent, but really it is not worth twice the points to do.  The Best Version is going to be the rookie.  She is a support piece not an attacker.

Movement: 7 with a very important single click of stealth.

Attack:  8,8,7,7,6  YIKES!

Defense: 15,14,14,13,12  DOUBLE YIKES!

Damage: 2,1,1,1,1 with probability control on everything but the final click.

Sculpt:  Nice.  Just plain cool.  Soooo much better then the oringal.

Team Ability:  Brotherhood which is always a good ability for a support character.  Free momvments can be very important.

Feats:  Nothing should be put on her.  There is no reason to drive up the point cost.

Battle Field Condition  She is a support piece, save the conditions for your main team members.

How to Beat Her:  She is pretty easy to hit and beat.  Use an  Ultimates character and hit her once and she’ll be done.  Or don’t trry to beat her, just ignore her.

How to Play Her:  Well, the trick is to hide her in stealth.  I guess that’s not as much of a  trick, but an obvious statement.  Other then that, don’t be afraid to move her just to get that roll you want.  Make sure to take advantage of her 10 range, which is very impressive for a character of that low of cost. 

Overview:  The comparison is Destiny.  Destiny is 20 points can not attack and does not have stealth.  She can be pushed and does have super sense.  The big thing I don’t like about Scarlet Witch is the in ability to push her.  Only having one click of stealth is pretty bad.  He attack is so low that is not that useful, but could be used occasionally.  The other person to think of is Jinx.   Scarlet which is not even close to as good as Jinx ( Jinx I gave a 5 out of 5 too).  Currently there are better characters to use for the same thing.  But the sculpt is sweet.

Overall Score:

3/5 300 Points

3/5 400 Points

3/5 500 Points
