Today we review Oracle. Once Barbara Gordon prowled the nights in search of criminals as the original Batgirl. That was before Joker shot her, paralyzing her from the waist down. But she didn't give up. She used her mind and vast computer skills to become the ulitmate information source. She became Oracle. Let's check the click..
Cost~ 27 points, 5 clicks of life, 4 range / 1 target, Batman team ability
Movement~ she's in a wheelchair, so you shouldn't have expected much. 5, 4, 3, 2, 0
Attack~ pretty decent given that she isn't an attack piece. 8, 7, 7, 6, 5
Defense~ Not really suprising that it's low, given her mobility. 13, 12, 11, 10, 8
Damage~ 1's straight through, but a click of leadership, a click of outwit, and 2 of perplex go with it.
Sculpt~ I haven't pulled one yet, but judging by the picture, the wheelchair looks great while barbara herself looks like she belongs on celebrity deathmatch.
Final Thoughts~ This is actually a really good support piece for the cost. Free stealth helps give her protection, as well as giving you a cheap source for your wildcard pieces to copy. What truly makes her shine is the compatability with the "in contact with oracle" card. It makes an already usable figure that much better. She should be able to find a home on most teams given her low cost.
Overall Score~ Sealed Booster: 4 / 5~her abilities make her valuable, but you may need the points for an actual attacker
Tournament Play: 4 / 5~depends on the strategy you use for her to be a use to you
Friendly Play: 5 / 5~I think when I get one, it'll b really fun to play her, and maybe get a knockout shot with her on their big brick!

Well monday marked on of the most expensive figures in the game, today marks one of the cheapest. Oracle, 27 points of support. She has an electric wheelchair, so her movement really should be above five, but its not. On her last click, the chair breaks and she has zero movement. Her attack, defense, and damage are also all severely subpar. What matters most are her powers. First click leadership, very usefull on such a low cost figure. Second click outwit, so simply pusher and she becomes almost as good as black panther, her next two clicks are perplex, which is always a plus. IMO she is a decent figure, even without the feat card, but the card is where she really shines. Using the card, when ever a bird of prey... er agent of the oracle takes an action they get plus one to one of their combat values, sorta like a self perplex. Using oracle with the card gives all of your force access to her powers. granted leadership at the cost of a power action isnt a good gamble, but perplex and outwit are.

100: 4.232/5 Extra actions are very good.
200: 3.987/5 decent but not great
300: 3.788/5 use her with the feat card for lots of fun
400: 3.677/5 use her with the feat card for lots of fun
500: 4.155/5 use her with the feat card for lots and lots of fun
