Power Compressor --
I do not like this card. It eats a slot for a
limited effect, and it can only be played on
three characters total in Marvel Origins. If
you've built Doom, you should have a lot better
way of dealing with your opponents' frightening
characters than a piece of equipment, which
according to the rules, gets "shut off", in a
sense, whenever the equipped character becomes
In limited, pass this and hope someone else
takes it. It'll usually be the worst card in the
pack. For those of you who play Magic, this card
is Chimney Imp.

effect is good, not great but ok. What I
don't see is how a Dr. Doom deck would have
the space for this card especially when the
card doesn't affect Brotherhood, the current
dominant deck. If the card would also
provided a bonus to ATK or DEF or maybe
another small effect I could see it being
played but as it is I really don't think a
Dr Doom deck has the space for a non event
card such as this one. Maybe in the future
there will be more activated character
powers but until then I don't see this baby
seeing much play.
This card is
pretty close to useless in this format. Its
no good with out Dr D and it's not that
great because most of the good activated
abilities are in rares. Maybe if it wasn't
Dr D specific but even then.
