Next up we’ll take a look at the woman he has claimed as his own, though she has her own opinion on the matter, #003 Superwoman!
Superwoman has a trait called Choose Your Loyalty: Ultraman or Owlman? This trait tells you to pick Ultraman or Owlman at the beginning of the game. If you choose Ultraman, any friendly Ultraman and Superwoman can use Super Strength. If you choose Owlman, he modifies his defense by +1, and Superwoman can use Combat Reflexes.
Starting on her 150 point line, Superwoman takes the fight to your opponent with a couple of clicks of Charge. Invulnerability will provide her damage reduction on these clicks. She also has a special power on these clicks called Lasso of Inhabitations Released. This power reads “When Superwoman hits a character with a close combat attack, place an Unfettered Inhibitions token on that character’s card if it doesn’t have one already. Characters with an Unfettered Inhibitions token on their card can’t ignore pushing damage and can’t be targeted by a friendly character’s Perplex. A character with an Unfettered Inhibition token on its card may be given a double power action to remove the token.“ On click #2, Superwoman has a click of Close Combat Expert. Her next click sees the addition of Flurry, with Toughness to reduce damage.
Click #4 is Superwoman’s 100 point starting line, and it starts as before with Charge, Invulnerability and her L Lasso of Inhabitations Released special power. She also has Close Combat Expert on this click. On her next click she goes back to Flurry with Toughness to protect her for a couple of clicks. On her last click of this section, Superwoman regains Close Combat Expert for a couple of clicks. She also has Quake on these clicks. On her last click, Superwoman may be able to heal back up to her 100 point starting line with Regeneration.
Superwoman can be played in theme using her Amazon and Crime Syndicate keywords.
