Pestilence
Limited Ed.

#201

Reviewed 06.29.2011

Rurouni KJS

The 2011 Origins convention is done. Attendants who played HeroClix there got first shot at a set of exclusive Limited Edition figures. They're supposed to become more widely available later in the year, but some of you want them NOW!

Last time, we looked at the Horseman (woman?) of Apocalypse FAMINE. Now let's examine the second lady rider of the storm...

PESTILENCE (Giant-Size X-Men #201)
double-based wing transporter
99 points
Team: none
Keywords: Horsemen of Apocalypse, Morlocks
Range: 4 x 1

DIAL & CARD:
http://heroclix.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/PESTILENCE-x-201.jpg 

STRENGTHS:
From the start, she can deal free damage via her "Plague" SP: penetrating Poison. Being well-defended with Invulnerability helps in that. Moreover, her trait boosts her damage value +1 each time a foe gets Poisoned...

...by ANYONE! (But, of course, it's good that she can help herself out some.)

WEAKNESSES:
She's got low damage and low range. Her Move And Attack ability is largely wasted due to her reliance on basing foes to use Poison.

CARDS OR COMPANIONS TO CONSIDER:
The ORANGE LANTERN will help that problem. And like her teammate Famine (who's a good companion to run with her), a fellow Poisoner will help Pestilence a lot.

IN SUM:
A piece requiring a great deal of finesse to use well, the free damage coupled with decent survivability nevertheless puts her at a solid 3/5 rating.
