Who is the Best: In my opinion none
of them are that great. I would say the rookie with
Avengers and Charge is
the best. However, I’m going to review the ultra

7 with Leap/Climb is nice for getting to the person
you want to Perplex. Leap/Climb at the end will
help you run away… although I’m not sure to where or
why you would want to run away.
8 attack… that is bad. But at least it drops Ultra
with Toughness will make her short dial mildly less
short. It will also save her from being killed by
really small figures.

Exploit Weakness near the middle when she would have
to get REALLY lucky to hit for one real damage.
Perplex at the end may help.

would not feat her. But if you have a Batman Ally
on you team, that
would really help.
Attack and Defense
Toughness is nice
Wildcard is nice
then one click of Perplex, what does she do?
can not be pushed or she will be useless
I have many of the
same points I had when reviewing Multiple Man. http://pojo.com/heroclix/COTD/2006/Aug/08.shtml
The question is this, why do you need
Jones? The answer is Perplex, because she really
can not do anything else. So that brings us to the
next question, what is the price of Perplex? The
first answer I can come up with is NOT 45 points!
Con Artist is 11 points and that admittedly was a
little cheap for Perplex. We all agree that
In contact with
Oracle is great and in most cases that is enough.
Dealing one extra damage each turn is great, but not
at the price of another attacker. Havok deals 4
damage, has Leadership, an
18 defense from (deleted
word) range and a 10 attack,
Oh, and he’s one
What’s the price of
Perplex? I think In
contact and then Oracle on the card is the
most I would ever pay. If you’re paying
(deleted word) 45
points for a new shinny Perplexor,
you’ve just bought a losing lemon.
STOP USING JESSICA JONES!!!!

Lite brick, thy name is Jewel. Sporting a lousy AV,
she's only good for tying up much bigger threats for
a moment of the average game. If you've got the
points to use her, I'd rather go with R Icons
Aquaman. Or someone REALLY good like V Echo.
THUNDERBOLTS is the only card you should ever
inflate her cost with. And that only if you NEED to
add a certain TA for wildcards to leech or somesuch.
Otherwise, use ALPHA FLIGHT to give her AV
I got nothin', because...
...Was she ever actually an Avenger? Or is this the
result of Brian Michael "JoeQ Gave Me the Marvel
Universe" Bendis pounding on the walls of Marvel
If you're not forced to in a sealed or draft game,
you'll never want to use this chick.
Rating: 1.5/5. Half a point for being able to Charge
with a heavy.
Very different from the Rookie. Sporting Perplex and
the wildcard TA, Jess can help your team out quite a
bit on those first and last clicks. She's very
pricey for essentially being a juiced up Con Artist,
The exception is if you're fielding Batman Enemies
or Sin.Syndicates whom she can leech attack values
from; then she becomes a potent threat in her own
right. And don't forget the Batman/Kabuki TA to make
her a Stealthed Con Artist.
None cry out to be used on her, not even the
one-size-fits-all cards like In Contact With Oracle
or Protected, so keep her cost down.
At this point in her career, she's probably met Luke
Cage (V Power Man), so a team-up with him and V Iron
Fist is a good theme team.
She'd lost half her powers somehow at this point in
her career due to the villainy of Purple Man (who is
her Archenemy in this set), so this looks right.
She's good in a draft, but you'll have to build her
in carefully to a team to get her points' worth out
In almost every way, Vet Jess is a more capable
figure than her E version. For starters, her AV is
at least decent before it quickly tanks. More
Perplex means she can prop up the team longer. And
Willpower gives her much more options. Too bad she's
no longer a wildcard.
POUNCE is finally viable on her. And with the right
THUNDERBOLT ability, she could be a force to
As the wife of V Power Man, she's essentially an
honorary New Avenger...
...hence the not-entirely-accurate TA.
On the surface, Vet Jess looks like a big boost over
the Exp. But the loss of the wildcard TA hurts a lot
of her flexibility. Still...
The “best” of the three is
the vet. They are all so bad I am going to be lazy and do
She is 51 points, has 0
range, 6 clciks fo life, and is an avenger
Speed: 7,6,6,7,6,5 Leap/Climb for first three and
Attack: 9,8,7,7,7,7 No powers
Defense: 16,16,16,15,14,14 Toughness first two,
Willpower next two
Damage: 2,2,1,1,1,1 Perplex for 2, Exploit Weakness
for two, then perplex again at end
The Good: Perplex helps herself and the team
Avengers can be
T-bolted to a lot of goodies
The Bad: Low numbers
Only way to ever use her
to attack is Pounce
Feats: Pounce comes to mind…..if you want her to
ever attack and have a chance at doing damage
Overall: She stinks…plain and simple. She is an
overpriced Con Artist who can maybe attack and just does not
have any of the stats or powers needed to make her really
playable. The avengers team helps, and is the only reason
she will have anything more than maybe a 1. She is
overcosted by about 20 points, is useless, and should never
Constructed/Unrestricted: 1.5 / 5
Sealed/Draft: .5 / 5
Overall: 1 / 5
