So, this will be Jessica Drew, from
Armor Wars. She’s a Unique that comes in at 65
points, and that’s third attacker territory I’d say…
She has a 6
range, 1 target, 7 clicks of life and she’s Hydra
TA. Ok, let’s see what
Speed: 8, 8, 7, 7, 7, 6, 6. 1st click of Charge, 2nd
and 3rd Mind Control,
the rest is Leap/Climb.
Attack: 9, 9, 8, 8, 7, 7, 6. Super Strength from the
1st up to the 4th, then
2 of Incapacitate and a last one of Pulse Wave.
Defense: 17, 16, 16, 15, 15, 14, 14. She has a full
dial of Combat Reflexes.
Damage: 3, 2, 2, 2, 2, 1, 1. RCE on the 2nd and 3rd
clicks, CCE on the last
Analysis: Nice defense values for the cost, indeed,
but then she’s only CR
there, so it’s not amazing. The speed values aren’t
great, really, and she’s not a flyer… but the powers
there are nice, Charge and L/C will help her
move around… and MC, I dunno, it might come in handy
sometime? About the
attack… average at best, and the SS is pretty
useless, except for the first
click. I mean, we all know that SS without Charge or
HSS is barely useful.
Although she hasn’t a large range and she’s only 1
target, that Incapacitate might be helpful. The
click of PW is wasted there… completely. Finally,
damage… for the first 3 clicks, is ok. The ability
to hit for 3, then for 4, and then again for 4 for
65 points is good, but that’s it. After those
clicks come 2 of 2 and finally 2 of 1’s with CCE,
but at the attack values
you have by then, you won’t hit unless your opponent
is pretty worn out, or
you have some Perplex or Probability Control.
Conclusion: To be honest, I don’t like her. Most
clicks, I try to see their
good sides, but there are some that appear to me as…
let’s say… not good. I
really dislike Combat Reflexes, I feel those 2
clicks of Mind Control are
out of place there, most of her attack powers aren’t
any good… I just don’t
100 – 1/5 No.
200 – 1/5 No.
300 – 1/5 There are like 20 characters, at least,
that cost pretty much the
same and can do much better

For our last review we have a member of the
NEW Avengers, the lovely, lovely, Jessica Drew, a.k.a.
Spiderwoman. A girl so tough, she stabbed Wolverine...WITH
HIS OWN CLAWS! If that isn't cool I don't know what is.
Anyways onto the review:
8,8,7,7,7,6,6 1 of charge, then 2 of Mind Control and then 4
9,9,8,8,7,7,6 4 of Super Strength, 2 Incapicitate, and 1 of
17,16,16,15,15,14,14 Nothing but Combat Reflexes
3,2,2,2,2,1,1 2 of RCE on the 2nd and 3rd clicks and CCE on
the back end
6 Range Hydra Team Ability
Well where to start. She has a myriad of powers (7 separate
colors to be precise) For the most part there very useful.
The initial charge is nice, along with the Super Strength is
good. RCE can jack her up to a four damage midway and the
the CCE isn't half bad either. For 65 points, her numbers
are decent, and her damage is really nice.
Now here's the bad side of things. First off her defense
power is horrible. I understand the idea of Combat Reflexes,
but that doesn't stop it from sucking. The speed powers
aren't much better, having to go in half way just to get her
movement. The Mind Control should be nice, but she doesn't
have the range to use it too effectively. The team ability
is alright, could be nice for Wildcards, but for her herself
its not the best. Finally the Pulse Wave? What is the point
Overall she doesn't have the numbers to be a strong attacker
but nor does she have the abilities to be an effective team
player. If you want to play a theme team, feel free to use
her, otherwise she's just a fancy piece that's awesome trade

REVIEWED BY CRAMCOMPANY
Today we'll be reviewing Jessica Drew from NEW GUY
New Guy night is one of the best things Wiz kids has
done…the only problem is I’m going to have to find a friend.
THE CREATION OF SPIDER-GIRL: Spider-man sold so well…how
can we capitalize. How about Spider-woman? Isn’t
that a little obvious? No, I doubt anybody will notice.
65 Points. 7 clicks. Hydra team. Ability 6 range with a
PERPARE YOURSELF FOR SOME OF THE CRAZIEST POWER COMBOS EVER!
Charge with an 8 to start. Then Mind Control for 2 clicks.
And finishing out to the typical leap/climb spider ability.
(9, 9, 8, 8 with super strength) (7, 7 incapacitate) and 6
with pulse wave?
17,16,16,15,15,14,14 all with Combat Reflexes. Not often
you see a full dial of that.
Alright check out this! 3, (2, 2 RANGED COMBAT EXPERT), 2,
2, (1, 1 Close Combat Expert?)
I really like her, hot and has her some web wings.
What a bizarre lot of power combos.
Charge on the first click followed by range combat expert on
the second click with mind control. OH and super strength?
Very much a pick and choose ability wheel there. None of
these abilities match up or work for any kind of strategy.
full dial of combat reflexes…now that is rare
Charge and super strength are always a good match up
Hydra ability is very under-rated
Hydra ability on a charge character is fairly pointless.
Under the right ranged circumstances her damage is very high
for the point value.
Ending pulse wave is always a good way to finish it out.
She is weird and full of surprises. She was a good pick for
new guy night as a fun character that is slightly better
then any of the characters (except Batman) that you’ll get
in the starter set. She will not see tournament play, but
she’ll certainly see fun play! Just have to find that
friend…darn it…looks like I’ll have to buy her on eBay.
HE RECEIVES A 2.5 OUT OF A POSSIBLE 5 THUMBS
“Good, Bad, I’m the Guy with the Clix.”
