    I don't think it's a one-star, they just aren't releasing the star level at this point.
    Most likely scenario is Spider-Man as a fourstar and Black Bolt as a fivestar though.

    Her icon looks very good!! Powers look interesting. Looks like red can stun 2 people and purple is a special tile creator. I wonder if it will be a unique tile or something already in the game.

    Four star definitely her prevention of damage reminds of Elektras though except doing it for allies too... Sweet

    It also could be more like Colosus yellow but better. I can see depending on how many covers it will reduce a certain percent of damage. At 5 covers it might go to 90-100% or be a set number. Electras black actually does damage back so by being a CD it feels more like colosus but better.

    Pre-release ability précis:
    Damage - 9 AP - Place a 4-turn countdown tile on the board. While active Spider-Woman intercepts attacks resisting or reducing damage dealt.
    Two ways this can go:

    As covers increase, "reduce" moves to "resist", but that might be a bit excessive. Imagine even a 2-turn countdown that resist all damage.

    I suspect it's something more like "resists attacks below X damage, and reduces other damage by Y%". Depending on level scaling, length of countdown, and number of covers, there's a ton of variables to tweak there to make this a solid but not gamebreaking defensive skill.

    Damage/Special Tile - 14 AP - Spider-Woman unloads her bioelectricity dealing damage to all other enemies and stunning them.


    14 Red AP is too much regardless of the power.
    With out AP generation like LThor/rulk/gsbw or AP reduction like Gwen, how are we going to earn these many?

    Devs can be maintain the balance by reducing the damage proportional to AP.

    That definitely could be didn't thought of that

    With those colors, I could use her with IM40 and Quake. Her black with Quake's yellow should be interesting, too.

    One more option... It could reduce or resist based on types of damage. e.g. resist all damage from enemy strike tiles like BSS with 5 purple, and reduce all other incoming damage by x%. Or resist match damage and reduce power damage, etc.

    Why is the word "other" included, does that usually mean something? Not sure why it would not just be "dealing damage to all enemies". A full enemy team stun would be awesome but puzzlequested by the word "other".

    I'm almost certain that this ability will not deal damage to the enemy that you have selected - only to the other enemies on the team. That doesn't fill me with confidence for poor Jessica. There have been some issues with the wording on these previews before, so I guess I'll just have to wait until the full details are revealed.

    In other words it means this skill does nothing if only one enemy left.

    It's poorly worded in the extreme in this case. And it's unfathomable as to why. Typically it makes at least some sense since they have to take the in-game text and strip out all mentions of things like "Spider-Woman", "bioelecticity", or "her" to avoid "spoiling" the character. But in this case they've already said who the character is. Why try to hide what the ability does? Just take the in game text and post it. But apparently we must make everything rocket surgery.

    Like, transplanting an organ into a Patriot missile?
    I like it.

    Maybe it does two different damage amounts, similar to Call the Storm. It's either that or a strange power that does nothing to the main target whatsoever.

    Edited, I tried to get this out and rushed it before my flight to gencon last week. She damages the whole team and stuns one of them randomly.
