Jokerkiller Ape X-Xina
1 cost common Squadron Supreme

Ape X is one of the best 1 drops in the game. He’s been in more then a few top decks. He thins your deck, searches for equipment, drops cards in hand and can be huge. Turn 2 Ape and flame thrower a 6/1 the burns for 5. Turn one jump pack. Any turn get a piece of the Fate suit. I don’t any downs side yet. This guy is a amazing. If Enemy is good or tool box decks this guys not far behind!

Rating 5/5 for any deck that needs specific equipment.

Cost 1
Squadron Supreme

Hmm…Xena joke…Ape joke…Monkey-ing around joke…I just can’t decide.

Ape X is pretty much a standard level 1 character for any equipment based deck. You put this character in play and get to search for an equipment card of any cost and bring it to your hand. That’s pretty rocking. Most searchers demand a discard, but this one doesn’t. It actually increases the amount of cards you have in your hand, and thins your deck at the same time. Good then. Or “+1 meta-card advantage chaosmetahakzorzszomgpwnedmeta” if you speak Yugioh.

The effect is awesome and it’s a level one so who gives a monkeys, heh monkeys, about the stats. The only downsides to this card are the ones that most 1 drop characters share (drawing them late in the game e.t.c.), so there isn’t really anything bad I can say about it. Other than it has a stupid name.

Sealed: 4
Constructed: 4

Oh noes, cookie-cutter card alert!

Apex X
Squadron Supreme/1/1/1
When Ape X comes into play, you may search your deck for an equipment card, reveal it, put it in your hand, and shuffle your deck.

You guys know my feelings on tutors. If you play equipments of any sort, you play this card for a free search. Doesn’t even have to be in a Squad deck, play it in any deck with equipments. Unless you’re playing curve, then you man not want Ape X, and just go for the plot twists or locations for searching for equipment. But generally, he’s a no brainer.

Modern Age: 4/5
Silver Age: 4/5
Golden Age: 4/5
Overall: 4/5

Booster Gold is a different story…

Today we take a step back a few sets to look at Ape X out of the Avengers set.

Ape X, Xina (Squadron Supreme)

1 cost, 1 ATK, 1 DEF

When Ape X comes int play, you may search your deck for an equipment cards, reveal it, put it into your hand, and shuffle your deck.

If you are using Equipment cards in your deck, Ape X is pretty cool. She's cheap, allowing you to play her later in the game and still have points left to play your equipment cards with, or other characters if your equipment card happens to be free (Green Latern Rings for the win!!!). As far as the Sqauadron Supreme goes, I don't know much about how they fair in tournaments. So I'm going to leave it at that. If you feel like flaming me, or telling me why this card is better than the score I give it, feel free to email me at DarrisHellBinde@yahoo.com.

Sealed: 2/5 Not going to get much equipment here, and I'm sure you can find better 1 drops than this.

Constructed: 4/5 if you are playing with equipment cards that are a essential to your winning.
